Archive: Natural Lip Gloss – Lily Lolo

My first archive post of the year and it seems only apt that today of all day’s (February 14th if you are reading this at a later date), it should be a lip product post – Happy Valentine’s Day! x

Lip gloss is not one of those products I usually keep large quantities of in my kit but I do maintain a basic stock to cover most bases. This more invariably means that at a minimum I carry a clear; a nude; a pink; a peach and a red at any one time – or at least variations on those themes.

The Lily Lolo Natural Lip Gloss (£10.00) was a fairly early addition to my kit and it remains my ones of my go-to products if I am looking for a fairly natural lip.

Available in nine shades, the line consists primarily of variations on pinks and peaches. Having worked my way through the majority of the shades over the years, my favourites are Whisper (a sheer pale dusky pink); Damson Dusk (a deep dusky pink mauve) and Cocktail (a deep peachy apricot shot through with subtle gold shimmer).

All of the shades are reasonably sheer and if used alone they don’t have a huge colour payoff (hence their name) but it is this merest hint of colour which makes them perfect for creating a natural looking lip. The glosses also work well if applied over a lip pencil; adding a little sheen to an otherwise matte finish. They need topping up from time to time but in all honesty, there aren’t many glosses that don’t!

The only negative for me (and this is a personal thing) is that the gloss has a cocoa buttery scent which I am not keen on however I have had many clients tell me they love it so I guess I’m alone in that.

I have used these lip glosses on almost every type of job from TV and advertising to fashion shoots and bridal work. They look lovely on camera and on screen, standing up to High Definition with ease.

Tailored to suit everyone with the flattering colour palette, they are not just for the professional or hardened gloss addict, I think they make for a perfect introduction to lip gloss and they are a great budget buy too.

Six years on I still have these lip glosses in my pro kit. As I mentioned in the original post, they are a great option for more natural makeups (be them on screen or in daily life); I particularly like them if I am creating a mum makeup for a commercial or when I’m creating a younger look. They have also proven popular with some TV presenters whom I work with on a regular basis.

Whilst they aren’t the only lip gloss brand I have in my kit, I will keep going back to restock as they are a great failsafe option. The price has gone up a little since the original post (£7.99-£10.00) but given that they are still one of the cheaper options when it comes to clean, green beauty, it isn’t so bad.
