While searching for a great contour product I came across this awesome looking palette online and it seemed to be exactly what I was looking for! The price seemed reasonable, the ingredients looked good and the demo picture made me think this product held real potential... and let me tell you... IT DOES!
When I first opened the packaging I was concerned that the sculpt shade was too warm for my skin tone and worried it would look muddy or orange once placed on my skin. I have been using the famous Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder up to this point, which is a cheekbone in a box, so when I tried out Lily LoLo's sculpting powder I was skeptical of how it would compare.
To my delight I really enjoyed the color! It was not as warm as the initial look made it seem, and it provided both a natural warmth to my face as well as a shadow! I used it mainly to contour my cheekbones, which worked great, and then I went back in to try and use it as a bronzer, which was also a success.
When I moved onto the highlighter I was also a little nervous. My biggest pet peeve of powder highlighters is when it looks like I've taken a glitter glue stick to my cheeks. By this I mean big clumps of glitter rather than an over all gloss to the highpoint of my face. I hoped that this product would be a great powder alternative to the RMS Living Luminzer (see older posts for more info) that I have become accustomed to and, thankfully, it is!
It provided me with a natural amount of luminosity with a bit of a cool undertone which I love (like a glass of prosecco rather than champagne). It totally livened up my makeup, but it wasn't glittery or overwhelming compared to my natural base.
Overall both of these products provided a natural amount of pigmentation that I found I could easily build or leave light to give me a more natural look. I was able to blend both colors easily and the experience was comparable to any other sculpting product I have used in the past (natural or not). The wear time seemed to be about 5-6 hours before I started to notice the pigmentation fading.
My only hesitation to recommending this product is the fact that it only comes in one shade. This is so unfortunate because I do think it limits the amount of people who can use it. I have very pale skin and on me, it showed up great, however I can imagine on deeper skin tones this would not be the case. I'm going to look around and try and find a similar product that has a larger spectrum of shades so I can recommend one to you guys.
Check out this video to see a demo of me using it! What do you guys think, have any of you tried this product, what was your experience?
