Blush is one of those products that can instantly transform a face. I’m not talking about complex facial sculpting, but simply adding a barely-there flush of color that brings the whole face to life.
My daily go-to product for that effect is Lily Lolo’s Pressed Blush.
Why I Love It
Lily Lolo is a UK-based natural makeup company with an impressive line of pigmented products. I especially love their eyeshadows and blushes.
The product applies evenly and stays put, and the prices won’t make you cringe.
Their medium pigmentation is conducive to an effortless application. It goes on sheer, but can be gradually built up if an intense look is desired.
It’s exactly what you expect a blush to be, just without the endocrine disruptors, petrochemicals or cheap fillers.
Inside the Ingredients
Ingredients: mica, jojoba seed oil, argan oil, pomegranate seed oil, manuka oil, sodium hyaluronate, sea holly extract. May contain: titanium dioxide, manganese violet, iron oxides.
|Extremely Safe||Reasonably Safe||Proceed with Caution||Insufficient Data|
A talc-free mica base is the gold standard in natural pressed powder formulations. Lily Lolo blush lives up to that standard.
To make things even better, they’ve included skin-beneficial ingredients such as jojoba oil, argan oil, pomegranate seed oil and manuka oil. You may assume the texture of this blush formulation is a mess with so many plant-based oils, but in reality the finished product has a velvety texture comparable to Mac blushes.
Variable Vegan Status
Most of the shades are vegan-friendly, with the exception of the Burst Your Bubble and In The Pink colors. I appreciate that Lily Lolo makes a clear distinction between their vegan and non-vegan shades.
This pressed blush is available in seven gorgeous colors. My perfect shade (pictured above) is Just Peachy.
Where to Purchase
Lily Lolo Pressed Blushes are $18 each. Purchase them here.
If you’re not seeing the shade you want, be sure to check out their wide range of colors available in their loose mineral blushes.
