I am always sent some beautiful things in the post from various brands and companies, I get excited when the post man brings a parcel that I am not expecting, and even my two little doggies have
started tail wagging when they hear the post man!
However like the rest of you I also have my favorites that I go out and buy, one such place is in my home town, it’s a little boutique shop full of wonderful little gems, from jewelry, cards, gifts and luxury handmade chocolates, I picked up this gold arm cuff from Hugs & Kisses, it’s so versatile and goes with so many things in my wardrobe, whenever I wear it I always get compliments, in fact I think I am due a visit to Hugs & Kisses to see their new Spring
collection and pick up some beauties.
Before you apply your makeup in order to get the best look , make sure you treat your skin with Williowbee Mask & Cleanse, this will re-balance, hydrate, soften any fine lines and wrinkles. firm up that jaw line and reduce pore size, so no makeup rests in the pores clogging up your skin, it will also sloth away
any surface debris from your canvas(skin) ready for you to apply the paintwork!
So this brings me to my next best favorite ….Makeup….I was sent a beautiful parcel from a cosmetic company called Lily Lolo. The makeup is all mineral based which already ticked a big box for me as I like to wear products on my skin that are kind and will treat it whist wearing, I love the
classic Black & White packaging too. The BB cream was the first thing I reached for, the color is perfect for my skin-tone (even the cat was impressed !) the texture is really creamy and easy to apply, the color is in a medium Shade, its silicone free and really helped to even out my skin, it’s definitely one I will be wearing when I don’t want a full face of makeup, as its so lightweight and a pleasure to wear.
The parcel from Lily Lolo is so packed full of goodies I was spoilt for choice!
brushes I was thrilled, great size, super soft for applying either, bronzer, mineral makeup and finishing powder, everyone should have one of these cute palm sized brushes.
Oh it’s like Christmas morning …next to try was Lily Lolo Lipstick in shade Demure, a great nude color that will go with anything, and without a doubt a staple lipstick color for all your makeup bags, packed full of Vitamin E and Rosemary, so my lips after wearing this
felt conditioned (and my hubby said my kisses where softer! )
The Lily Lolo eye shadows are fantastic, they have Sea Holly Extract to help the age process (always a good one for ladies of a certain age!) they also have
jojobo oil to moisturise the delicate skin on the eyelids, I have decided I need one in every color from the collection…. it’s a must!
Mascara is next ladies and gents…..I have a collection of mascaras that would put to shame any backstage MUA at Fashion Week ! and now I am happy to say this Lily Lolo one has now entered my top 5 best mascaras, I like my lashes to look natural (not like daisy the cow) I like them to be defined, voluminous and long, this does all the above and I love it.
There are so many fabulous brands/products/treatments out there and I love trying new things out , especially if I see good results, Lily Lola is a brand I really love for the results, the packaging and the fact they have created a whole collection that is affordable for anyone, the prices will shock you when you see them, and I bet after this blog post Lily Lola will see a flurry of visitors!
