It's no secret that I love gift sets. Given the choice, I'll almost always purchase a set over single pieces. They come packaged beautifully, and (especially when it comes to cosmetics) the products have been carefully selected to complement one another. 

Emporio Organico has an online store, or if you're local to Sydney, you can also pop into their flagship store in Crows Nest!

There are several different sets to choose from, and I opted for the Almost Famous Collection which includes the new Pedal to the Metal Eye Shadow Palette, Mineral Blush in Rosy Apple and Lipstick in Rose Gold.

The Christmas Collections are packaged in the most gorgeous blue and white boxes, ready to be gifted, and perfect for storing things in afterwards! And they are, of course, 100% natural and non-toxic. You can find all of the ingredients listed here, here and here.

Almost Famous Collection / Review

As I mentioned above, this gift set is perfectly curated. The blush and lipstick pair beautifully with the eyeshadow palette to create a perfectly coordinated and flattering look.

I actually wasn't too sure about the shade of lipstick when looking at it in the tube, but it really surprised me once on the lips. Note to self: Always swatch! 

Lipstick in Rose Gold

I've found all of the Lily Lolo Lipsticks to be very creamy and moisturising, and this shade is no exception. It is also long-lasting and it fades evenly. I don't find this shade to leave a stain on my lips, but that's typical with lighter colours. As I said above, I really wasn't too sure about the shade in the tube. It appears much more nude than what I usually wear, and almost too peachy. 

The shade will of course look different on everyone due to skin tone, lip pigment, colouring etc, but I was pleasantly surprised by how flattering the shade Rose Gold really is. Flattering to the point I think I've found a new favourite shade. It has a very slight shimmer to it, which is something I also usually dislike/avoid. The shimmer is very subtle, however, and merely adds more dimension to the lips, giving the illusion of fuller lips. 

Once on, Rose Gold is what I would describe as a nude, rose-gold tone. It does have a peachy undertone, but it is a very flattering shade - and it works very well within this collection.

Mineral Blush in Rosy Apple

In the pot, this blush has a very shimmery finish - almost a sheen as it moves in the light. 
The shade is a warm, muted natural burnt-rose tone. It works well on most skin tones, including the very fair. Packaged in a sifter jar, it's easy to dispense the correct amount of product and keep it tidy and safe from spills. 

This blush is incredibly lightweight, and VERY pigmented. You need the smallest amount of product, so one jar will quite likely last until expiry! Due to the shimmery/sheen in the pot, I was quite surprised (and pleased) to see that the shimmery effect doesn't transfer to the skin. Not one bit. Even up close. Instead, I was left with a beautiful luminous finish and healthy glow!

I really think this blush is what pulls this entire collection together. The shade is warm enough to work with the nude lip/smokey eye look, but fresh enough to work with lighter, more colourful looks!

Pedal to the Metal Eye Shadow Palette

This palette includes both matte and shimmer shades, in a range of neutrals, metallics (gold, silver & taupey grey) and charcoals. It also includes a great highlight shade. 

All of the pressed eyeshadows and light and silky, easy to blend and build, and have good medium - high pigmentation. You can also use all of them wet or dry. Tip: Wet your brush with a setting spray or toner and go over the shimmer shades after application for a metallic finish and more intense colour.

Most of the time, I prefer a more natural look, but sometimes I do want something more dramatic, and this palette accommodates that. The Almost Famous Collection would actually cover almost any look or occasion with just these three products. All of the shades play beautifully together, and offer endless opportunity for experimenting. 

I particularly love the shade Hook Up - a matte, light beige (second last), which has a peachy/pink undertone. It makes a gorgeous transition or all-over shade. The shade Pole Position - a matte, soft brown (third from left) is also one of the more neutral/natural shades and makes a pretty crease shade.

I've gone fairly light and natural in the look below, but you can also create more dramatic, smokey-eye looks with this palette.
