Caudalie and Lily lolo review

In my part of the world the summer is in its full potential and it’s hot, really hot out there! The need for makeup is becoming lighter and lighter, but we still need to look fresh and flawless 🙂  Recently I have been testing a very known brand of cosmetics that is very popular here in Italy; it’s Caudalie. However, I know they aren’t 100% organic but I appreciate the fact they are working on the natural ingredients based on vine extracts and they have also removed parabens, mineral oils, sls, phenoxyethanol and phtalates. Since I have quite some pigmentation spots (btw they don’t come only from sun!), I find interesting the new Caudalie Radiance serum among other green beauties…

 

Skincare – Caudalie Vinoperfect collection review

Caudalie Vinoperfect radiance serum complexion correcting

This milky serum has a light texture and is very hydrating and light to wear. On the skin it blends well and leaves a nice light layer of hydration and softness. For my skin which tends to be dry I have to say it’s more than enough worn on its own under a BB cream or tinted moisturizer. It is packed in a beautiful 30ml glass bottle with the dropper and so you need only a few drops for the entire face. It smells delicate, fresh and very pleasant without being too harsh. It does make the skin feel radiant and nourished. This collection is inspired to the old knowledge from vineyards in the past where women had beautiful complexion because were using grapevine sap.  Regarding the reduction of dark spots is too early to say because I’ve been using the serum only for 10 days which is not so much to talk about bigger results.

Caudalie Vinoperfect radiance tinted moisturizer

From this same collection I wanted to try the tinted moisturizer too which is a gorgeous product for summer time. It comes in a plastic 40ml tube and available in 2 shades. I’ve chose the light shade n.1. It’s a very well designed color for most light skin tonalities. It is light in texture, oil-free, easy to blend and it matches great the previous product. Together they work great for a fresh, dewy summer make-up! It is pigmented with minerals and has a SPF20. I just don’t like the classic SPF here (could be changed with something else), but overall it’s a great product that performs very well especially in summer.

Lily Lolo new limited edition summer shades

Lily lolo natural lip gloss High Flyer

I wanted so much to try all these new shades from Lily Lolo and I wasn’t disappointed 🙂 The new Lily Lolo lip gloss in this package is now perfect. The old one was having some difficulties with the package, although a great product inside. The gloss still smells divine, one of the best and most delicious scents and aromas I have tried – pure creamy chocolate that you’d just eat 🙂 This new shade is so nice for summer tanned skin! It’s a creamy matte peachy terracotta shade in warm undertones. It is very pigmented, hydrating, not too sticky, really great!

Lily Lolo pressed blush Life’s a peach

This new Lily Lolo pressed blush complements great with the new Lily Lolo lip gloss too, since it comes in a peachy matte shade that at the end doesn’t look cake or dull. Rather it gives a beautiful touch of color especially to bronzed skin. The main point is to give life to the face with these summer tonalities! It blends great and it’s very easy to use and you know I’m a huge lover of pressed powder products 🙂 Since Lily Lolo has renewed all the image design, packages and added new formulations they did a huge leap on a higher level. A brand with great ingredients, super clean, beautiful, all to love!

 

Green makeup tip Add these blush and gloss to your dewy complexion treated previously with a tinted moisturizer. Load your lashes with lots of mascara (use waterproof if you have problems with sweating and smudging) and your quick summer make-up is ready!

 

Enjoy the summer days to gain new energy!

    So nice with some fresh summer tips! I like Lily Lolo, but have not tried much of Caudalie. My favourite right now for summer is ILIA tinted moisturiser with spf 20.
    So nice that you have some warm weather. Here in Sweden still the temperature rarely get over 10 degrees celsius. Very disappointing. The last summer we had it so much warmer.
