Did you know that the ingredients in the body shop mineral powder are almost identical.....just saying as this one is easier to get hold of and test colours etc.

That's interesting. I switched from Bare Minerals to Lilylolo as I prefer the texture and finish on my aging skin. Is the Bodyshop one matt or twinkly?

Indecisivejo Sun 19-Jul-15 15:09:34

I'm not completely sure tbh as only tested on my hand before and can't remember lol. I am thinking about going to buy some myself.

Indecisivejo Sun 19-Jul-15 15:09:56

I hated bare minerals with a passion

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Sun 19-Jul-15 16:27:53

Almost identical isn't identical though , is it?wink

LL is easy to find the right colours as they do testers and they send enough for at least a week's use.

I might have a look next time I'm passing a body shop, but just looking at it on the website I doubt they will a very pale shade.

I love the range of shades that lily lolo offer.

Anyone tried Inika?

If I wear fairly light in bare minerals, what would be the nearest lily Lolo match?

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Sun 19-Jul-15 18:23:20

If you email them they will suggest shades. Their customer service is fantastic, if you email today they'll email back by tomorrow ime.

Do the body shop do concealer like the lilylolo one?

Thank you everyone. I think I'm going to give this a try.

Ha ha I know almost identical isn't identical but I think it's like 1 ingredient different.
Ordering online isn't as convenient for everybody, I'm hardly ever home when postie comes so always end up having to collect from sorting office which is a faff for me sad.....however I live very close to lakeside so body shop easy to get to as and when I please grin
I'm still unsure if I'm going to buy any anyway as I'm usually ALWAYS disappointed with any beauty buys, my skin is too annoying sad

Surely a product can have more or less the same ingredients and be completely different? Most cakes and biscuits contain flour, butter, sugar and eggs but they're hardly all the same.

Indecisivejo Mon 20-Jul-15 12:28:22

I didn't come on here for a debate about it, I was just making an observation that may be useful to some people

I think weight for weight, the LL is better value - I have checked it out previously as a good friend of mine was a BS rep and I wanted to support her, but sadly there was less in the package from BS and it just boils down to price for me. Though I was previously a Clinique user until they discontinued it hmm so if I hadn't found LL I probably would have gone for the BS one.

I tried the Avon one once, nice powder good coverage but just not pale enough. Only tried that cos another friend was an Avon rep!

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Mon 20-Jul-15 13:33:33

The Avon one is fantastic but weird colours.

Just ordered 3 samples from Lily Lolo. I emailed them yesterday regarding the best shades and they came back to me today with the shades I had originally thought would be right, Very reasonable price.
