One Brand Tutorial : Lily Lolo

Lily Lolo Mascara has been my Ride or Die, #1 mascara for years. It's hands down the best mascara (in my humble opinion) in green beauty. It's volumizing, it doesn't flake, it's just amazing. Yet, I'd never tried anything else from the brand. I partnered with The Choosy Chick to bring you an almost full face of nearly all first impressions. 

I know you want to know all about the eyelid primer. It does not disappoint! It really does help shadows go on smoothly and true to color. It also increases the longevity of your eye looks and it does not crease - even on my super hooded lids. Definitely a win. 

I'm also using the Pedal To The Metal Palette - um, hello 8 non-toxic eyeshadows with a beautiful mix of mattes and shimmers for under $40. If you're a matte eyeshadow lover like me, you know that matte eyeshadows in a palette are super hard to come by in the green beauty space. The Sculpt and Glow Contour Duo is really great if you're not into a real contour, but a light sculpt. It's not at all intimidating to use and gives a very natural look. 

Pssst. If you spend $50 on Lily Lolo products at The Choosy Chick, you can get the Free Eyeliner ($16 value) while stock lasts.  Code:  LOVELINER.
