HOL Originals Minerals

I’ve had this blog post drafted for so long! I was out of the country and haven’t settled yet and was busy spending some well deserved quality time with my husband. I’ve missed him so much and it was so nice to see him.

Anyway on to my main post. I wanted to share with you guys another local Mineral Makeup brand that is making its way to the top. House of Liliput or HOL. Cute name eh? They have recently launched their first collection, Sweet Dreams Collection which includes 7 uber cute shades.

Bea Chua, owner of HOL, sent me sample of their multipurpose minerals to try out.  According to her, HOL will only be launching different collections and just a few shades per collection. I’m not very sure if once they have launched a new collection, they will still be carrying or selling their old collection. So if you’re interested, purchase right away. ;)

Mineral Makeup Love!

I think this collection plays around with candy shades. Very colorful, very trendy and the name of the collection fits it perfectly, very sweet!

The shades from this collection are:
Hey There Delilah – Purple 
Drops of Jupiter – Turquoise 
Lemon Tree Very Pretty - Yellow
Me & My Margarita – Green 
She’s On Fire – Orange 
Fly, Skyline Pigeon - Blue 
Strawberry Fields Forever – Pink

Hooray for super fun shade names!

Time for swatches: Just minerals, no foiling, no primer.

I must admit… at first I was skeptic. I have already tried some local brands of mineral makeup but they weren’t at par with Monave. And I have been a loyal user of Monave eyeshadows because of the really pretty shimmers and lasting power. I have also tried some traditional pigments, and nothing comes close to MAC. And when I tried HOL’s, I was very impressed. Really nice quality. I used it twice and will be posting my FOTD and EOTD soon. I’m impressed that it was really very pigmented. I didn’t need to use much. And also had to tap off excess because just a small amount was already enough.

I am very very in love with Lemon Tree Very Pretty (yellow pigment). Maybe I’m biased because I love yellow but I really really find the pigment so nice. Just the right amount of shimmer and goodness! Haha. :)

I’ll post photos so you can see them in action! I really believe this brand is worth trying! I love that it stays the whole day (given you’ve primed your lids first of course) and it’s buildable and you can combine the pigments to create a new shade of your own. :)

HOL Minerals is also available at SHOPSUI Tiendesitas and SHOPSUI G3.
