Lily Lolo Mineral Shimmer Stardust and Mineral Cover Up in Barely Beige review


I mentioned in my review of Lily Lolo lipstick (here) that I also received the mineral shimmer and concealer.
I love mineral makeup and I am trying to use it more often.
I have been using both products for over three weeks and I really, really  like them :)

LILY LOLO MINERAL SHIMMER STARDUST* 6g £12.49 link

"Mineral Shimmer is a sheer, ultra-fine powder that offers a gentle shimmer & glistening finish without looking heavy or artificial. Gentle on the skin, protecting rather than damaging your complexion."

I adore  this product. I got a little sample of it a couple of months ago and I fell in love with it instantly. 
It is a perfect highlighter and adds a lovely, subtle shimmer to my face.
It looks nice on pale and tanned skin (I tried it after fake tanning my face and on pale skin) 
It feels very light on my skin and gives a lovely finish.
I use it on the top of my cheekbones, nose, temples and chin, or mix it with a loose powder for an allover glow. 
Because it is a mineral product, it protects the skin and is non clogging.
You only need a tiny amount of it each time, so it will last for a long time, as you get a lot of product for your money.

LILY LOLO MINERAL CONCEALER* in Barely Beige 5g £7.49 link


"Mineral concealer provides a heavier coverage than our mineral foundation. Effortlessly concealing hard to cover blemishes, imperfections and dark circles, you will be amazed at the staying power of such a soft delicate loose powder."

Another lovely and long lasting face product from Lily Lolo.
I have a love/hate relationship with concealers, as they tend to look terrible under my eyes, but this one looks very natural and is very lightweight.
I got it in shade Barely Beige and I think that it would suit most average white skin tones.
It is perfect for concealing under eye circles, breakouts and pigmentation marks. 
It gives medium coverage but it is buildable, giving full coverage with two layers.
I prefer one layer to be honest, especially under my eyes, as it looks more natural.
Again, it is a skin friendly product and won't clog your pores.
