Everyday Essentials ft. Lola Cosmetics

Discovering new brands can be fun but also over-whelming at the same time.  What are the formulas like?  Which category should you try first?  When I discover a new brand, I like to try some of their everyday, go-to products that I can use any day, any season.  I have been enjoying a few must-haves from Lola Cosmetics that you can easily incorporate into your everyday routine.

Eyeshadow Duo in La Lopez  |  Admittedly, I always gravitate toward eyeshadows when scoping out a brand's line.  Lola Cosmetics offers different variations of eyeshadow - singles, duos, and even trios with both powder and cream formulations.  I have the powder duo in La Lopez.  I chose this duo for its versatility.  It's neutral and provides brightness with the lighter shade and definition with the darker shade (which also doubles as a brow powder for me).  The lighter shade is a blush color with a slight shimmer and the brown is a smooth, matte which is really versatile.  The formula is very soft and incredibly pigmented.  Also, I don't have to rely on any other shadows to complete my look.  These shadows last and give me a natural look I can wear any time of year.  Lola Cosmetics has plenty of duos to choose from, whether you prefer neutrals or beautiful pops of color.

Geisha Glow  |  A bronzer, blush and highlight all in one gorgeous red compact.  I've been loving the natural glow this trio has given my skin.  The bronzer is light, yet provides a much-needed warmth to my skin without looking muddy or over-done.  I would wear this even in the winter months to liven up my complexion.  The blush is a light, fresh pink suitable for any time of year.  The formula is pigmented but I can use almost any brush for application and get a soft, blended look.  Lastly - the highlighter.  This shade is unique in that you can use a light hand to add brightness or a bit more product and use it as a blush or even eyeshadow.  I have actually used it as an eyeshadow quite a bit and it's really brightening and flattering.  While these powders are gorgeous on their own, you could also combine them for an all-over glow.

Lip Gloss in Bare  |  Nude glosses are always in season for me.  This one has a little something extra with a beautiful golden shimmer.  I'm not one for metallic or overly sparkly lips, but this shimmer gives just the right amount of brightness and dimension.  When the light hits it, your lips look ultra shiny and gorgeous.  I love the nude pink tone of this gloss because it makes it versatile and flattering at the same time.  I find myself reaching for this gloss quite often.  It's definitely become a favorite!
