Are You a Trendsetter? Add This Cosmetics Brand to Your Makeup Bags...NOW!
LoLade Cosmetics is a diamond in the rough and I am so thrilled to have found out about this brand! Don't get me wrong, I am very brand loyal to certain big name brands, but it makes me feel so invigorated to be able to say I liked a small brands products before they blow up and are used by everyone!
I am a self proclaimed cosmetics guru and as soon as LoLade Cosmetics came into our office I was the first to check out everything they sent and I picked out the items I have never seen on the market...yet. I also grabbed a few products that are classics, yet amazed me by the twist they seem to have making them feel like something brand new.
First let me start with the HD Translucent Loose Powder. Makeup setting powder has been around forever and I have tried many variations and have found that translucent works and looks the best, it's more natural than having to choose a colored powder. Also, loose powder is much easier to apply and doesn't give you a caked / blotchy look that pressed power does. If you think about it you are basically pressing powder onto your face and your most oily areas will pick up and absorb the powder more than other parts of your face, leaving you looking spotty...ewwww. I also feel that way in general if you have to choose a colored power, just so much more to deal with and it doesn't look as natural and flawless as a translucent. Typically these powders are the consistence of a baby powder, so I was surprised to use the LoLade powder because it was so silky! It flowed out of the sifter with no shaking at all! I used to use a powder brush to apply, but expert celebrity makeup artists Maurice Stein changed my world when he explained to us how to apply loose power. He uses a puff, not any of the little thin ones the products usually come with but a thick 5" diameter powder puff. Shake the loose powder in the center of the puff and fold the puff in half and rub together to absorb the powder. Then reverse the fold to expose the powdered side and rock the puff back and forth over cheek areas, forehead and chin. Then just puff all the other areas of your face. If you have too much powder on your face, you can then take a large powder brush and blend. The LoLade powder sets my makeup flawlessly and naturally, it is my new secret weapon! It even last all day...no touch ups needed at all! I have an oily T-zone and it was never an issue with this powder...even after wearing for nearly 12 hours!
Another classic fave is lip gloss and when I grabbed LoLade's Lip Lacquer in "Cherry On Top" AKA bright red, I assumed it was like any other gloss I have that gives a sheer color with shine....was I wrong! This gloss is highly pigmented to give a brilliant, sexy red color on top on an irresistible shine! I love how it looks like a lip stick but it's not! It doesn't feel dry and it has great lasting power. It also is an all in one so you don't need to apply a lip stick and then gloss...it is truly glamorous and you will feel like a sexy temptress or an old Hollywood pinup girl with these cherry lips on :) I know red's can be hard to manage but I didn't feel like this wasn't my red and I have a feeling it is pretty universal for many skin tones and looks. Just keep in mind when you do bold lips, don't over do it but doing dramatic bold eye makeup looks! I like to keeps eyes simple with a nude colored eye shadow or simple just line your top lid for that 1920s style.
Now a few of the products that stood out to me were their Cream Hilites in Fantasy. It looked like a cream eyeshadow but once I looked more into it I realized it was a cream highlighter with that hint of shimmer to give you that J-Lo glow. I am sure you can also use it as an eye shadow if you would like, but it is not very pigmented since it's main purpose is to create a reflective glow above your cheek bones up to your temples, or forehead and chin to create an all over glow. The dewy skin glow is something that people strive for, especially popular in the Spring and Summer seasons. It looks great on a tan for a "just came home from a tropical vacation" beach glow. It is very subtle and not overly done or cheesy looking which most of them tend to look like. I've tried a lot of the liquid shimmer highlighters but it was new for me to see it in a cream! It was easy to add into my makeup routine, after I applied my foundation I will sweep a bit over my cheek bones and sometimes I will apply once I have used the setting powder and blush. It's up to you personally how dramatic you want to make it...it's simple to use and no liquid mess :)
The last product, and one that grabbed my attention right away, is the Lolade Indelible Paint in the color "Pink Slip". This cute little jar packs a powerful color punch when it comes to livening up your makeup! I have, of course, tried out many of the gel liners but I have yet to use a colored one...I actually haven't seen too many colored ones on the market, which I'm sure is in the process of changing that because of the color trends emerging for Spring and Summer! These type of liners are best used with the proper brush, that is most important and should not be compromised if you want it to look right! A fine line brush or slim angled brush will glide on easy to the top lid and you can always build on top of the line to thicken it if you like. To create a fun bottom eyeliner look I like to line my water line with black liner and then sweep the pink colored gel liner right under it! You can also line to top too or just add a neutral shadow on the top lid...or a color shadow for bold / dramatic eyes. I honestly like using gel liners as shadows because once applied and dried it stays put! No smudging, creases or water running this stuff...it has maximum staying power..as in makeup up remover needed to wash off. I love that though, who wants to worry about flaky running makeup while your living life? NOT ME!
That is my Lolade Cosmetics overhaul, tips, tricks and trend review!
