January 25th, 2016



Our first launch of 2016 has just landed and we couldn’t be more excited to share!

We can’t wait to get in the spring beauty mood and fresh, glow-getting skin is the perfect way to update your look in preparation for the change in seasons.

Great skin is the foundation of beautiful makeup, but if your inner glow needs a little help, our new Contour Duo is the perfect way to make the absolute most of what you’ve got.  It’s our secret shortcut to enviable contours and sky-high cheekbones!

Our duo contains a skin-flattering bronzer that makes for effortless contouring and a light-reflecting highlighter which can be used sparingly for a subtle, fresh daytime glow or intensified for a luminous, killer evening look.  No glitter here, just a gorgeous highlight!  Our angled blush brush is the perfect partner for enhancing those cheekbones you never knew you had.

We just love the look that Jane Bradley created on the beautiful Annabel – fresh, subtle and gorgeous.  Here’s how she did it:

First up, let’s sculpt.  Apply the bronzer to the areas of the face that you want to contour, gradually working into the hollows of the cheeks and defining the temples, jaw line and sides of the nose.  Looking into the mirror face-on, blend, blend, blend to smooth any lines or edges.

Now for some glow.  Starting with just a little highlighter, apply to the tops of cheekbones, centre of nose, cupid’s bow, brow bone and anywhere that light naturally catches the skin, build up to achieve the glow you’re after – and you’re done!

Naturally, it’s our usual skin loving formula containing argan oil and marine extract.  It’s fragrance and talc free and vegan friendly – what’s not to love?

Just Add Drama

October 5th, 2015



How have we kept this one under wraps?  We’ve been bursting to share this year’s limited edition eye palette with you for months and now we finally can!

Our team at HQ worked on the gorgeous Smoke & Mirrors eye palette with the lovely Jane Bradley, celebrity make up artist, for a fresh perspective on what can work together for a show stopping smoky eye.  The palette’s eight high-pigment, fine-textured shimmering and matte shadows make building and blending a dramatic eye easy.  The darker shades are perfect for adding depth and drama to produce a classic smoky eye look, whereas the light shades will act as the perfect base to build up a variety of party season looks.

Jane said “I love that every single shade in the Smoke & Mirrors palette can be worn together, in any combination, meaning the possibilities are endless!”.  Here at HQ, Myth and Silhouette are fast becoming our everyday faves which they seem to suit every one of us.

We have a feeling Smoke & Mirrors won’t be hanging around for long so get it on your Christmas list now!

Enduring beauty…10 years of Lily Lolo

August 13th, 2015



A decade ago, we started our journey to creating the high-performance, all-natural mineral makeup we dreamed of but couldn’t find, and today we’re as passionate as ever about making the world of beauty an even more beautiful place.

Our founder Vikki Khan, was so impressed by mineral makeup from the US, that in 2005 she began experimenting with her own creations.

Vikki then started selling the range online, packing and posting orders around their day jobs. On the first day’s trading in 2005, they took three orders. Today Lily Lolo is sold in 39 countries.

“I began Lily Lolo to bring amazing mineral makeup to women everywhere,” says founder, Vikki Khan. “In our tenth year, we’re still changing the face of beauty with natural products that do what they promise and help you look and feel gorgeous!”

As a busy Mum of two, Vikki is still an integral part of all the areas of the business and particularly enjoys developing new products for our loyal customers.

All the staff at Lily Lolo would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support, we couldn’t have done it without you.

Join us in celebrating by mentioning #ENDURINGBEAUTY #10YEARSOFLILYLOLO on social media.

Here’s to another 10 years, and lots of new exciting products to be launched very soon!

Get the Glow.

June 2nd, 2015

Following on from the success of our pressed products launched last year; we are excited to introduce our new addition to the LL family, Pressed Bronzer.

Our lightweight Pressed Bronzer will instantly give the skin a natural-looking, sun-kissed glow. With soft, buildable colour the three shades will give you the desired level of tan without the need to expose your skin to the sun’s harmful rays.

This mineral rich Pressed Bronzer contains anti-ageing  Argan Oil and Jojoba Oil for added moisturising benefits.

Bronzer should be applied to the areas of your face the sun would naturally hit, forehead, the cheekbones, and down along your jawline to give you a sun kissed radiance. For a more contoured look it can be applied in a 3 shape on either side of the face, blending any edges for a natural finish.

We thought we’d let you in on the secret of how our model Ana got this sun-kissed glow.

Eyes – Apply Moonlight Mineral Eye Shadow with a wet brush as the main base to the eyelid and blend into the socket line. Bronze sparkle can be applied to the crease and blended together.

Mix Sticky Toffee with water and apply to the inner corner of the eye to highlight, and blend towards the middle of the eye lid. Using the socket line brush apply moonlight along the lower lash line and blend slightly to soften.

Face – Using our Bronzer Brush apply Montego Bay Bronzer all over the face, particularly on areas that would normally catch the sun, don’t forget to blend into the neck. Contour using the blush brush, apply Honolulu in the hollows under the cheek bones along the jawline, down the sides of the nose and near the hairline.

Lips – Keep the lips nude for this look with our Natural Lipstick in Rose Gold which contains a slight shimmer. Apply straight from the bullet and blot with a tissue before adding a second coat for longevity. Add a coat of Natural Lip Gloss in Clear for an extra finish.

To avoid looking too orange look, pick the bronzer shade that will suit your skin tone:

Light skin tone – Miami Beach – Matte

Medium skin tone – Montego Bay – Sheen

Medium to dark skin tone – Honolulu – Sheen

It’s time to get that summer ready glow.

Its becoming more fashionable to embrace a more natural skin tone, with celebrities like, Emma Stone, Taylor Swift, Emma Watson and Dita von Teese all favouring the English rose look.

Our products cover a broad range of skin tones, but here are a few products that will flatter even the palest of skin.

BB Cream – Fair – £11.99

Foundation – Porcelain and China Doll – £13.49

When it comes to Blush, pale skinned beauties are lucky that they can either wear pink or oranges hues. For a little added shimmer try our pale pink Candy Girl Mineral Blush or Cherry Blossom which is a light peach shade. Remember that a little goes a long way with our blush, so apply in light layers.

Parisian Spring Collection

April 16th, 2015


Taking inspiration from the natural beauty make-up trends showcased on the S/S 15 catwalks, the new need-it-now collection is comprised of toned down burnt orange hues, beautiful beige’s and nudes that will flatter and compliment any skin tone.

Because of the natural formulas, a lot of our products are multi use. Not only was the new Pressed Blush used on the apples of the cheeks, but also to add dimension to the eye lids.

To get this look, follow celebrity makeup artist, Jane Bradley’s guide:

“I blended Buttered Up across the entire lid, inner corners and lower lash line for a highlighted effect. Then I applied In for a Penny to the outer corner of the socket and take across the upper lash line. Make sure to blend any sharp edges.  I lightly swept Life’s a Peach across the apples of her cheeks for a fresh natural glow. High Flyer is a deep coral shade to give a fresh pigmented layer of colour and shine to the lips.”

Bold or Natural, what’s your favourite shade?

March 2nd, 2015

lip image

Sometimes you will need to push yourself to change your go-to lipstick for a brighter alternative, but as long as it’s a complimenting hue for your skin tone, the results will be amazing.

Pale skin – A warmer red shade like French Flirt

Olive Skin – A deep red, Desire would be a flattering shade

Dark skin – Dark plum shades like Berry Crush

The colour of your lipstick can define the rest of your makeup for the day, so always have an idea which one you are going to wear before starting your makeup routine.

If you stick to the rules of heavy eye makeup with nude lips to balance it out, and toned down eyes with a bright bold lipstick, you can’t go wrong.

Lily Lolo’s Lipsticks have a creamy texture that delivers a burst of radiant colour. With added Vitamin E and Rosemary Extract to protect your pout, these Natural Lipsticks come in 10 stunning shades

Do you dare to be bold?

3 steps to flawless looking skin.

January 16th, 2015



Here at Lily Lolo we are constantly offering shade advice and product recommendations to new customers, but by far the holy grail of beauty question asked is, ‘how do we get flawless looking skin?’.

We find that layering is the key and unlike other products that can feel thick and cloggy, our makeup has a weightless texture with remarkable staying power. The natural formulation of our best-selling products will minimise breakouts, blemishes and will help you achieve healthy looking, flawless skin in 3 simple steps.

Step 1 – Natural BB Cream

Our silicone free Beauty Balm contains nourishing and anti-ageing ingredients to moisturise your skin and give a healthy dewy glow as well as a super sheer layer of coverage.

Step 2- Mineral Foundation 

After allowing your BB Cream to dry, begin buffing your favourite shade of Mineral Foundation into the skin. Our Baby Buki Brush is great for smaller areas of your face such as eyelids and around the nose.

Step 3 – Finishing Powder

Our Finishing Powder instantly minimises fine lines and imperfections with a lightweight texture and natural formulation. Choose from a matte or dewy finish and apply with our Powder Brush in light downward strokes. It will set your makeup and help it to last throughout the day.

If you have any questions, our friendly customer services team are here to help.

Wow, we have LOVED 2014.

January 2nd, 2015


We started out 2014 a little apprehensive of the big announcement we were about to make, a total re-brand of the Lily Lolo you have loved and supported for a long time. Well, we just want to say a massive THANK YOU, because we couldn’t be happier with the reaction we received from all our loyal fans and stockists around the world.

Not only are we overwhelmed with all the praise, we have also earned recognition with several trade, reader voted and industry awards, many of which were for new products that only launched in 2014.

Our product development team spent a lot of time on new, improved formulas of our Eye Pencil and Mascara and these were amongst the big award winners.

We also launched our first liquid product, a Natural BB Cream, which went down a storm and is still continues to be one of our best selling products.

More pressed products were added to our range in 2014, twenty Pressed Eye Shadow singles, six Pressed Blush compacts and two stunning Limited Edition Eye Palettes for Christmas.

We went on the road towards the end of the year, traveling to trade shows in Dublin and Manchester. We enjoyed meeting some of our current stockist and also introducing Lily Lolo to some new stockists that loved it so much, they are now selling it in their own salons.

You can see that we have had a very successful and busy 2014, we can’t wait to see what 2015 has in store.

Thank you all for your continued support, we would like to wish you a very happy new year, and a beautiful 2015.

HOLY BROW! Beautifully defined eyebrows…

June 11th, 2014

Following on from the successful launch of our Pressed Eye Shadow, available in the same sleek mirrored compacts we have launched our Eyebrow Duo which comes in three natural shades.

Lily Lolo Eyebrow Duo

Enhancing your eyebrows can completely change the look of your makeup as they define your face and can give a polished effect, the key is to only enhance and define your natural brow so they look like your brows but better!

Featuring a natural coloured wax and a pressed powder in, Light, Medium and Dark, find the shade which is closest your natural eyebrow colour or go a shade darker if you want a stronger more defined look.

Makeup artist to the stars, Jane Bradley, worked with our Eyebrow Duo on our latest shoot and was really impressed with the colours, she said “It’s often hard to find brow shades which match seamlessly with your natural brow colour but clearly great care has been taken to get these Eyebrow Duo’s just right. LIGHT is perfectly ashy for pale blondes, MEDIUM is a mid brown for mousy blondes or brunettes and DARK is spot on for blacker hair without a hint of an orangey undertone. I’m really impressed and the wax is a great way to keep the hairs in place too”

Our Angled Brow – Spoolie brush is the perfect tool to use with our Eyebrow Duo, making application quick and easy. Our Eyebrow Duo allows you to get perfectly groomed brows in just two easy steps;
Step 1
Using the Angled Brow end of the brush apply the pressed powder in short strokes to the natural shape of the brow, following the direction of hair growth. Make sure to fill in any gaps for a polished result.

Step 2
Using the Spoolie end of the brush, comb through the brows to groom and tidy before applying the wax. Using the Angled Brow end of the brush, coat the bristles in a thin layer of wax and follow the same application for the powder. The wax will set the brows and help to hold them in place all day.

TIP: To get a more intense colour payoff, mix the wax and powder together

Our Eyebrow Duo is the natural way to beautifully define your eyebrows for an immaculate finish, have you tried it yet?

Discover Our New Look

January 27th, 2014

We are really excited to finally announce the launch of the brand new Lily Lolo.

Over the past 6 months the Lily Lolo team and London agency R-design, have been meeting, discussing, designing and refining to come up with the perfect new look for Lily Lolo.

We’ve always been proud of our expertly formulated mineral makeup, but we wanted the look of the brand to mirror the high quality of our products.

So after far too many travelling hours, endless cups of coffee and what feels like hundreds of meetings, we would like to present  our fabulous new look…

Lily Lolo Rebrand

Our products will still be made using the natural ingredients we’re famous for, but the packaging has had a face lift. All our makeup products will now come in beautiful new black and white boxes that will help add a more premium feel but of course without the premium price tag.

We really hope that you’ll love the new look as much as we do. We can’t wait to hear what you think of it and also to share with you what else we have coming up in 2014.

Lily Lolo will help take you from coffee to cocktails.

December 13th, 2013

It’s that time of year again where our social lives go into over drive.

Christmas parties, catching up with friends or celebrating the holidays, you’ll find that you will have less time to perfect your makeup.

Many of us will have to go straight from the office to the party, so it’s essential to have a few quick fix steps to get you looking glam in no time.

After a full day at the office you might need to touch up your Foundation, why not buy a sample of your favourite Foundation shade (£1.49) and a Baby Buki Brush (£8.99) so you don’t have to take your full pot.

The New Limited Edition products in our Classic and Metallics Collection are the perfect handbag friendly compacts to add a little glamour.

If you have used the lighter shade of the Eye Shadow Quad during the day, blend the darker shimmer shades around the eye socket and lower lash line to create a dramatic effect. The useful makeup applicator that comes with this palette will mean you don’t have to bring any extra brushes. Accentuate your lashes with a slick of Lash Alert Mascara to widen your eyes.

Using the Baby Buki Brush, swirl it round the Shimmer Stripes and apply to your cheeks, then using your finger, sweep the white stripe on your brow bone to highlight.

Another great tip is to use our Translucent Silk Finishing Powder over the top of your makeup. This illuminating powder will minimise any fine lines and imperfections as well as setting your makeup for the long night ahead.

Adding a bold coat of lipstick will be the final thing to transform you into a disco diva. For a deep shade, our Berry Crush will be look fantastic, or a more subtle shade like French Flirt would work well to set off darker more dramatic eye makeup.

Now you are looking party ready in double quick time, all you need to do is get your heels on and dance the night away.

Using the Molten Bronze Eye Shadow Quad apply the peachy shade all over the lid as a base, use the gold to highlight the center of the lid and blend the bronze colour into the socket to contour and then apply the black shimmer along the upper and lower lash lines for a smouldering look. Apply Honey Glow Shimmer Stripes to the cheeks, and use the lightest stripe just below the brow bone to highlight the eyes.

Aw creative


We don’t know about you, but we always love seeing tips about how to get makeup looks, so we’d like to share some of the model images from our recent photo shoot, and how we made them look so beautiful using some of our A/W products as well as firm favourites from our current range.

Below is Emma wearing everyday Autumnal makeup

AW main


Our makeup artist used a mix of Coffee Bean and Warm Honey Mineral Foundation on Emma and a light dusting of Sunset Blush on her cheeks. Flawless Matte Finishing Powder was used over the top to stop shine or reflections on camera.


All of our makeup artists used Prime Focus eye lid Primer to extend the wear of powder eye shadow, keeping it smooth and crease-free.

Using Poison Ivy Pressed Eye Shadow Duo, the matte rose was applied all over the eye socket as a base and the green was used on the lower and upper lash lines to create a smoky effect.

As a highlighter, Cream Soda Mineral Eye Shadow was applied under the brow bone to add a hint of glamour.

A coating of Lash Alert mascara and Natural Eyeliner, both in black was added to the upper and lower lashes to finish off  these powerful eyes.


We think Emma looks beautiful in the new Berry Crush Lipstick, and it really compliments the dramatic eye makeup.


Here is Tess with  more dramatic night time  makeup

AW 2nd


A light – medium shade of our Mineral Foundation, Popcorn, was used on Tess to match her peach undertones, with a hint of Flushed Blusher to highlight the cheekbones.


Prime Focus primer on the whole eyelid area, with Smoky Slate Pressed Eye Shadow Duo used to create this look. The smoky Taupe was applied as a base and the deep grey was blended around the eye socket and under the lash line for an intense night time look. To finish off the eyes, the makeup artist used Lash Alert black mascara and good amount of eyeliner on the edge of the eyelid and under the eyes using a Smudge Brush.


Tess wore the Passion pink Natural Lipstick with Bitten Pink Lip Gloss over the top.

Holiday Makeup Tips

August 1st, 2013

Here at Lily Lolo we know the importance of taking the correct makeup on holiday. If you are going to a hot climate, it’s nice to wear minimal makeup during the day, maybe a light shimmering eye shadow like pink champagne. At the beginning of your holiday you might like to use Mineral bronzer to give you a sun kissed glow. It is advisable not to expose your face to too much sun as it can cause premature aging and skin damage, so a light dusting of our Mineral Foundation that is SPF15 will help protect your skin and cover any problem areas at the same time.

Like the girls in our office, I’m sure you will still use more makeup in the evening to create some dramatic looks. To save precious space in your luggage, take our pressed mineral eye shadow duos. These beautiful shades will complement each other and can be less messy. If you have over done the sunbathing, our Mineral foundation can be used to cover up any red areas of your body and because it doesn’t contain any nasty chemicals, it won’t cause any irritation. Don’t forget that you can mix a darker shade of foundation or bronzer with your current foundation to match your darker skin.

Lily Lolo tip: Only going away for a few days? Why not buy your favourite shades of foundation, finishing powder and bronzer in our sample sizes to help make more room for shoes.

Lily Lolo checklist


Foundation – light covering to help protect with SPF15

Eye shadow – a nice subtle light shimmer shade

Lash alert mascara – use our brown shade for a natural look

Bronzer – to make you glow


Foundation – can also be used to cover any sunburnt areas

Eye shadow – our pressed can also be applied with a wet brush for a more intense effect.

Mineral eyeliner – to define and accentuate your eyes

Lash alert mascara – use the black on a night to add glamour

Bronzer – use on the areas that would naturally catch the sun, cheekbones, nose and forehead

Blush – one with a shimmer to help highlight your cheekbones

Lip gloss – Let the added vitamin E & organic jojoba keep your pout protected


We hope these little hints help you look fantastic on your holidays

Festival makeup survival guide

June 26th, 2013

The festival season is upon us, and with Glastonbury starting this week, we thought we’d give you some help to stay glam and looking your best without your home comforts.

The biggest obstacle’s when camping are lack of space to get ready and the necessity to only take a small capsule collection of your makeup. Both of these can mean lots of people will just brush their hair and apply a bit of moisturiser. We don’t know about you but we would rather look like festival veteran Fearne Cotton, with her glowing makeup that looks natural but with the added ‘wow’ factor.

Here are a few ideas from Lily Lolo to help you look fantastic.

The best space saving plan is the Mineral Starter Kit. This contains 3 sample size foundations, flawless silk finishing powder & a baby buki brush. These mini pots will be the perfect size to last the whole festival, but they won’t take up precious space. The foundation is SPF15 so will help protect your skin if the sun decides to make an appearance this year, with the finishing powder giving you a nice glow and helping to keep your makeup in place all day.

Another festival essential is our deliciously chocolaty natural lip gloss packed with vitamin e & organic jojoba to nourish and protect your pout.

That’s your skin and lips looking good, the only other items you will need are eye shadow and a coat of Lash Alert Mascara. Choosing simple natural shades of eye shadow will mean you could take the pressed mineral duos, two colours in one simple packet that will go with all your outfits. Cappuccino is a great shade to take so you can use the light shimmer beige as a base colour and the matte chocolate brown to contour round the eye socket.

Lily Lolo tip – The chocolate brown can be used on eyebrows to define and the shimmer beige put on checks for a great highlight effect.

All these products will help you look and feel amazing, now all you have to do is get those wellies on and pray for the sun.
