LOLA Make Up: New Favourite Lip Liner?

I am a make up junkie and there's nothing I love more than trying new things. So when I was sent some goodies from a brand called LOLA, I was so excited because I don't think I had come across their products before (I don't know how, because everything looks fab).

I was lucky enough to receive an eyeshadow, matte lipstick, and a lip liner, all of which are encased in gorgeous matte black packaging. The products definitely look and feel a lot more expensive than they are, but I'll talk more about that later!

LOLA currently sponsor Britain's Next Top Model and are cruelty free, which is a massive plus for me.

One of the products I received is a gorgeous matte red lipstick called 'Merry Berry' (I almost typed Mary Berry...). Anyone who knows me knows that I never wear a red lip, simply because I love wearing colour on my eyes and anything other than a nude lip colour looks too 'tarty' as my mum would say! I am pleased that this shade is out of my comfort zone though, and actually couldn't wait to wear it. It is matte without being dry and goes perfectly over the lip liner, it also made my teeth look fabulously white.

The lip liner is in the shade 'Cherry', which is again a red but with a slight orangey tone, and I was so surprised at how pigmented and soft the lip liner was to apply. It literally glides onto the lips, it's so easy to control and although it's soft, it's not too soft so it doesn't smudge everywhere. You also get a handy brush on the other end to apply your gloss or lipstick, how handy is that?

 I am an eyeshadow fanatic, and squealed with joy when I saw the shade I had been sent. It's number 42, and is a peachy, rose colour with a slight gold sheen. I used it on the inner third of my eyelid and as it's a satin finish and I loved the colour so much, I also used it as a blusher. It reminds me a bit of a Nars blusher, it's the same kind of shade but a lot less shimmery.

As I mentioned earlier, the packaging is very sleek and I am especially pleased with the lipstick as it's sturdy and isn't one of those likely to pop open in your bag, which is a strong dislike of mine. I am definitely going to check out the rest of the shades in the lip liners because I think I need them all.

Everything in the LOLA range is afforable and I am so impressed by the high quality. You can have a look at their site here.
