3 Reasons to Love Lola Cosmetics

March 23, 2008 at 8:42 pm 6 comments

After reading so many nice things about the Lola Cosmetics line from the women at Megsmakeup.com, I just had to try some Lola, and Lola did not disappoint.  If you love red, you will love the elegant and sleek red containers.   They are beautiful and functional. 

The first review is of Lola’s FOUNDATION DUO ($35).  I loved the silky feel of the foundation, but found it was a bit too dry for my combination skin-type.  My 14 year old daughter needed a new foundation and I sent this her way, and she gladly accepted it.

Amanda’s review:

I am giving Lola’s two very big thumbs up!  This foundation was a success on my oily teenage skin.  I love the way this foundation feels on my face.  It is so light and fresh it feels like I am not wearing any makeup at all!  It is not as heavy as the liquid foundations and it won’t make my skin look all oily. It is a nice powder and won’t leave my skin itchy and dry.  I don’t have to worry about finding the right shade because if it is too light, I can go darker, or if it’s too dark I can go lighter.  I like to use them both together and the colors are really beautiful together.  I will definitely use this product all up, and I suggest you try it!

My review of Lola’s Mascara ($19.50):

Very rich, protein packed mascara.  Brushes on nicely, not too thick, not clumpy, this mascara just hugs my lashes and stays all day.  Doesn’t add incredible length, but is a very nice formula of mascara.  I am really loving it as my daytime mascara. 

And finally, the piece de resistance,  Lola’s PEARL LUMINOUS – Brightening and Light Diffusing Powder ($35):

This is a product that everyone needs, a wonderful pearlized translucent powder that is silky soft and can be used as a highlighter around eyes, on top of cheeks and around mouth to add a soft focus look.  I love the glow it gives my skin, and how it diminished the look of my fine lines. 

These are three great reasons that Amanda and I are both loving Lola!

    I LOVE Lola! That foundation is perfect for a younger girl. And it’s hard to find a cream-to-powder anymore and this one is great! It’s light and fresh looking.

    I also love the mascara – its the perfect day time mascara and its super-black which I love! My hair is so dark naturally that I like my Mascara to be really dark otherwise there’s no drama.

    Good picks, Jen!

    Lola is sold online at their website, and at Sephora and Ulta stores. I haven’t seen it carried at any of my local department stores, but that isn’t saying much.

    Tracy your hair is totally awesome! I typed up another post for week 2. Keep up the great work.
