Launched in 2005 by founder Vikki Khan and named after her two sisters Lisa (Lily) and Lorraine (Lolo) (…). Made from pure crushed minerals and containing no harsh chemicals, dyes or fillers, mineral foundation is not only gentle on the skin but also contains zinc oxides which have healing properties – perfect for those who suffer breakouts or have sensitive skin.

Some of the many benefits of mineral makeup are: 1.) Natural – Mineral makeup looks natural and feels almost weightless on your skin. 2.) Long Lasting – Mineral makeup has excellent staying power and is virtually water and sweat proof. 3.) Sun Safe – Contains natural broad-spectrum sun protection.

The colour range is very muted and includes natural, earthy tones. The majority of eyeshadows include some shimmer. Overall I would say the colour range is rather limited, but good for someone looking for very nude or neutral makeup products.


The foundation consists of MICA, ZINC OXIDE [+/- CI 77891 (TITANIUM DIOXIDE), CI 77492 (IRON OXIDE), CI 77491 (IRON OXIDE), CI 77499 (IRON OXIDE)]. Lily Lolo claims that “When developing new products we work with cosmetic scientists to ensure that the ingredients used are naturally derived, and we ensure that we steer well clear of any harsh chemicals and certainly controversial ingredients. The natural ingredients are generally refined or processed in order to be safe for human use, and to ensure they work as efficiently as possible in cosmetic use.” and “none of the Lily Lolo range of cosmetics contains parabens, fragrances or fillers.”.
