Lola Cosmetics

Lola Refine Prime


Lola Mascara

Lola brushes


I was very intrigued by Lola Cosmetics on a trip to Sephora while in Las Vegas. I came back home anxious to learn more about Lola. Hollywood makeup artist, Victoria Jackson is the name behind the brand. As I've said before, makeup artists create the best cosmetics because they simply know what works.

The red and black signature colors give the products a sultry, dramatic vibe. It reminds me of a smoky nightclub during the 1940's. Me draped over a baby grand piano wearing a red velvet dress emblazened with sequins, hair pulled back with a rose tucked behind my ear...

I got to sample several makeup brushes which is a relatively new obsession. I'm still learning how to use brushes, it's been years of using cheap applicators to apply eye shadow, concealer and foundation. Lola's brushes are lovely, high quality. soft bristled tools that make putting on your makeup a little easier. The brushes are made with synthetic and natural fibers. I'm pleased that the brushes are super smooth and the bristles don't fall out or give me rash, that's happened before. My favorite out of the bunch was the foundation brush because it was the perfect instrument to seamlessly blend my foundation.

Lola Mascara and The Ultimate Mascara didn't flake or smudge and left my lashes fully coated with color until I took it off at the end of the day. I used both mascaras, layering them and liking the result of very black, long lashes. Neither mascara clumped and the wand never became goopy or too packed with mascara. Lola Mascara worked well but did not have the same impact as The Ultimate, if you like your lashes simply dark and pretty then use this one.

I am constantly looking for great primers and since running this site, I've found some really good ones. I think you will agree that the Lola Refine Prime is wonderful. This water based primer comes in a little bottle with a pump applicator. It doesn't take much to smooth this all over your face to prep for foundation.

Refine Prime contains "Active levels of retinoids, antioxidants and peptides help to promote skin regeneration and deliver oxygen and nutrients to assist in rejuvenating the skin." The consistency is like a cream or lotion and the primer dries to a smooth finish. After gently patting this one all over my face, I did notice my pores and fine lines were less noticable.

You will enjoy checking out this brand if you haven't heard of it before. I'm very pleased with what I tested and you will find it fun to check out the website and look over all the different products. What caught my eye was Lipstick Sheer. I'm starting a wish list for Lola products and that's going to top it!
