LOLA is the makeup brand that really does seem to have it all. Vegan, luxurious, stylish yet affordable and created by a select British team of beauty experts and make-up artists. This was also the brand used to adorn the contestants on ‘Britain’s Next Top Model’ as its official partner. What’s not to love? Over the next few weeks I will be testing some of their bestselling products to see if they live up to their reputation.

Lola Matte Eyeshadow in Beige, 029

Price: £7.50

Stockists: Foundation Brands


  • Silky soft
  • Smooth application
  • Natural
  • Can be used alone or as a base


  • Less versatile than a palette of shades

They say:

Rich, intense colour coverage in two different textures and finishes. Matte eyeshadows are perfect for a natural everyday look or to provide a base colour for building, blending, highlighting or contouring. Satin shades have subtle iridescence to lift the colour and visually smooth the appearance of skin. Silicon particles and emollient oils offer an ultra-silky touch and excellent adherence. All can be used wet or dry.

We say: 

Great! I rarely wear eyeshadow, despite often being lured into splashing out on rainbow shades, but this one has converted me. It makes your eyelids a better-version of themselves when worn alone or acts as a perfect base for deeper shades. It’s become a part of my capsule make-up collection.


Tactile rubberised tub that is lightweight enough to carry in your bag.


5 stars
