WHO LOVES NEW BEAUTY? I know I certainly do! If it weren’t clear already; I get so excited when I come across a brand I’ve not tried before. Even better when I’ve read rave reviews from my favourite beauty bloggers.
So when LOLA dropped on my doorstep, it was greeted with ‘oohs!’ and ‘ahhs!’ and general squeals of delight, as you might expect. LOLA by Perse is a UK cruelty free beauty brand designed by the greatest brains in beauty; the experts in industry and talented makeup artists that seem to be a little bit magical.
I’ve been trying out LOLA for the past two weeks, here are all my thoughts and feelings so far..!
Perfect base smoothing primer £14.95* –
The primer is translucent, light and smooth; applying easily over every imperfection and evening out my skin, ready for my makeup. I found it left my face feeling silky smooth, and helped keep my makeup in place (especially when using cream eyeshadows!). I would argue that the 15ml tube is a little small, but since the price is so cheap; it’s still definitely worth it for the incredible quality and staying power!
Picture perfect liquid foundation £19.95* –
Considering this feels like such a professional and flawless foundation (competing with my favourite; Urban Decay All Nighter!), it’s crazy that the price is under £20. I’m used to paying £30 for the finish that this gives me, and it’s a wonderful bargain in comparison to others. It has oil absorbing properties which helps gives that perfect Insta-ready airbrushed look, and it seems to give a really natural look still. I’d say this is medium coverage, and I’m already in love with it! I don’t think it lasts quite as long as my UD foundation, but I’m still pretty impressed. Also, isnt the packaging just gorgeous?!
Highlighter powder £10.95* –
The highlighter powder from LOLA beauty is a creamy sort of formula (is that weird to say about a powder??) and it’s absolutely GORGEOUS. It blends like butter and gives the most beautiful warm glow, perfect for Summer. Think Kim K glow vibes, yasss! I’d love LOLA to have a super icy cooler version too, but this baby still brings me joy. It makes someone even as pale and fair as I look wonderfully sunkissed. Also, THE PRICE IS A WINNER, EH?
Intense colour lipstick £11.95* –
Oooh isn’t she a beauty?! I have been wearing one of LOLA’s intense colour lipsticks, in shade 0003 Peachy; a wonderful peachy orange. I love how anything slightly orange toned always POPS like hell on me (clashing with my hair too, in a good way!) so I loved this shade instantly. The formula certainly lives up to it’s name too, intense pigment swooping over your lips on first try. It gives a glossy finish and leaves my lips feeling moisturised too. This is an absolute STEAL at this price too. Seriously, it’s incredible!
Overall I’d have to say I’m SO, so impressed with LOLA by Perse on first impressions; so I’d definitely go check out the rest of their range. The prices are more than fair for such beautiful, high quality, professional products and I’d be happy to recommend to a friend. Next on my wishlist is probably the liquid lipsticks or the nail polishes!
