Why mineral make up?

Posted on April 23, 2015 Categories: Feature News, News Tags: ,

Mineral make up has become very popular in recent years and here at Cherish we stock and use Lily Lolo mineral make up. A british brand, launched in 2005 by founder Vikki Khan and named after her two sisters Lisa (Lily) and Lorraine (Lolo).[

Made from pure crushed minerals and containing no harsh chemicals, dyes or fillers, mineral foundation is not only gentle on the skin but also contains zinc oxides which have healing properties – perfect for those who suffer breakouts or have sensitive skin.

The products are free of any parabens, synthetic perfumes or dyes and they are BUAV approved. Whether your skin is dry, oily or anywhere in-between,it will give you a light, flawless and seamless finish without clogging or irritating.


We tried samples of many mineral make up brands and fell in love with the Lily Lolo products straight away- they are lovely to apply and wear, have great colours and choices of shade and are very reasonably priced.

Some of the many benefits of mineral makeup are:

1.) Natural – Mineral makeup looks natural and feels almost weightless on your skin.

2.) Long Lasting – Mineral makeup has excellent staying power and is virtually water and sweat proof.

3.) Sun Safe – Contains natural broad-spectrum sun protection.

4.) It doesn’t encourage bacterial growth due to its make hence there isn’t the same risk of contamination, with a bonus of an increased shelf life compared to non-mineral based make-up.
