Review of Purobio cosmetics, Lily Lolo and Uoga Uoga from Ecco Verde

purobio cosmetics, lily lolo, uoga uoga review

Let’s splash in fresher shades of makeup these summer days! I have tried some make-up beauties from a few different brands, that I find very nice to wear now when we tend to choose something brighter and fresher to lighten up the complexion.

Wanna have an advice about a fresh makeup for this summer? Here is a suggestion…plus a selection of natural products to achieve it!


Purobio cosmetics Sublime BB cream, Sublime concealer, Resplendent Matte Bronzing powder and Eyeshadow palette

purobio cosmetics review

First I’m going to focus on face products; I really like both Sublime concealer and the BB cream. I have chosen Purobio cosmetics BB cream in shade 01 which is very light in shade (and exact match for my skin) and in texture too. You have to shake well the tube before and pay attention because the content is very liquid. It blends however very easy on the skin, leaving a light, dewy finish. The shade n.1 is very light with a cool to neutral undertone (see below the swatch). I love to use it without powder on dry skin, because it gives that lovely dewy glow. But if your skin is oily then you have to powder after.

Next, I chose Purobio cosmetics Sublime concealer in shade n.2 which is darker than the BB cream and it also has a yellow undertone. I love the fact that is dense but at the same time it blends well and it covers the imperfections well. It has a brush incorporated and it’s easy to apply, but I prefer to blend it with another brush or with a Beauty blender. But it’s handy to use it if you are on the go.

Green makeup tip: The best result is that you set the concealer after with Purobio cosmetics setting powder (here the review), so that it won’t crease in lines.

In summer we love to add some warmth and shape to our face and so I’m always in search to try new bronzers. Those matte, non orange or glittered one. I thought to try one of Purobio cosmetics Matte Resplendent Bronzer. As I said I love the fact is matte, though I find it quite dark for the lightest n.1 number. I wouldn’t use it on a pale, fair skin, too dark even if applied with a very light hand. The shade is interesting, more on a yellow side which gives it that “saharienne” mood. The texture is very silky and smooth and blends well. I don’t recommend to put it directly on top of creamy products like bb cream or foundation without powder because it won’t blend perfectly. This is a general rule though to achieve a flawless finish – “powder with powder” and “cream with cream”.

To conclude with the review of Purobio cosmetics I end with a gift that it was added to the order if you purchased 3 Purobio products. The gift was the Purobio Eyeshadow palette in Colori moda (fashion colours) that contains 3 shimmery shades and one matte. First I thought they are too shimmery because they have so big shiny particles. But then when blended they diffuse in a nice satin shimmer finish. I like all the 3 shades: copper is amazing, electric blue and purple too! I don’t like so much the matte green, but if mixed with those others you can get a nice effect. You can use them dry or wet, they are very pigmented and resistant too. Especially if you put a primer (here the review of Purobio eye primer) underneath they will stay long on your eyelids.

Lily Lolo lipstick and Uoga Uoga Lip & Cheek colours

Last but not least, these two are my favourites! Apart from beautiful colors, they are great in quality and finish too. We all know the amazing brand Lily Lolo, whereas I adore all their lipstick, but now was searching  for a nude lipstick in a fresh light rosy shade which is exactly Lily Lolo Lipstick in Temptation. For all of you who thought is a cool bubblegum pink, it’s not exactly, but I’d describe it as a fresh and modern rose shade with a neutral undertone. Check below the swatch on daylight although on my hand looks warmer and darker than it is. On the lips is very close to the one on the model (see picture on top). And it’s super creamy, hydrating and smooth on lips. It complements great with the other product that I chose and that I applied it on cheeks since they are from the similar colour family.

Even here the description and colour is really out of reality. Uoga Uoga Lip &cheek colour in Fragile is a very pale, light nude rose, that is super gorgeous worn on top of the bb cream for a dewy natural flush (delicate and super lovely). I wouldn’t recommend it on lips because is really pale, except for those women with pale skin and light hair. Or if you wear a really bold smoky eye…

Green makeup tip: Otherwise, for a simple day look avoid the palest lip colours, because you will get a washed out effect, which we don’t want.

Here are the swatches of Lily Lolo lipstick Temptation and Uoga Uoga Lip&cheek color Fragile (again there is less radiance, because there was raining)

    Uh, I don’t know anything from this selection, but I guess I may like the lipstick. I feel always comfortable with those shades. The “Green make-up tip” is a gem!

    As for me, I haven’t tried anything new on the natural make-up field. But I experimented with brushes (:-)). I tested the flat Shiseido-like buffer foundation brush from DaVinci, but the 4 Euros similar brush from drugstore is much better in performance! Maybe the DaVinci one will have more durability, but it’s not a great deal. Some other tests in progress…

      Mara, sorry to hear that about your new DaVinci brush.
      Oh yes, Lily Lolo Temptation lipstick is a nice all-around day shade for that radiant look πŸ™‚
      Smack back πŸ™‚

    Lovely post!
    I’ve got the puro bio eyeshadow pallette in nude tones, great for a daily base make-up.
    I love uoga uoga! The mineral foundation doesn’t dry my skin out like other mineral foundations does.
    I am very interested in their lip&cheeks, is the formulation very hydrating so you can use them on dry lips as well?

      Hi Lina! Nice to hear your thoughts about these products you use and love! Well, the Uoga Uoga Lip&cheeks is fabulous as a cheek colour, it gives that beautiful stain. But especially for dry lips, I’d use a lip balm underneath, to hydrate and also to spread it better cause is not so creamy in consistence. However it doesn’t dry the lips if worn on its own.
      Hope it helps X
