My five favourite and most reached for beauty products during the month of May were: Flourish Almond Milk Perfume Oil, Face of Australia Foxy Roxy Nail Polish, Dermalogica Sheer Tint Redness Relief, Inglot #230 Lipstick & Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Moisturizing Body Oil.
If you’ve not yet heard of Face Of Australia, they are currently the darling brand of the Australian beauty blogging community. Not only are their products affordable and of excellent quality but they handle themselves as a brand exceptionally well, especially when it comes to dealing with fellow Aussie beauty bloggers like myself. I was intrigued as to what this brand was all about, and a little while ago I posted a mini haul of products that I purchased from this brand. Included in that haul was the Face of Australia Blusher in the shade Outback Primrose. Otherwise known as an inexpensive, highly pigmented perfect pink blush.
As you can see from the pictures above it’s quite a dark and heavily pigmented shade of pink, so if you have very fair skin like myself I would suggest using a very light hand when applying it to your face (unless of course you want to look like one of those slightly creepy porcelain faced clown dolls). The blush is long wearing, though I do generally layer it over a cream blush which helps most blushes last a little bit longer throughout the working day. The Face of Australia Blusher in Outback Primrose retails for $9.45 AUD. I picked mine up from Big W, but you can check for a local stockist on the Face Of Australia website.
During my recent Face of Australia mini shopping spree, I picked up one of their Eye Definer pencils in the shade purple. I did this for a couple of reasons, a) the eye definer pencils are super cheap and b) I am forever on the hunt for a good purple eyeliner as the colour brings out the best in green eyes (apparently).
I really like the Face of Australia Eye Definer Pencils because they tick all of the boxes for me. They’re densely pigmented (as you can see above, the swatch I’ve used is after one swipe of the pencil), they last the entire working day but they’re easy enough to remove when you want to. They’re also cheap as chips, retailing for $7.45 AUD (though I managed to score mine on sale at the time). I picked mine up from Big W, but you can check for a local stockist on the Face Of Australia website.
After seeing various Face Of Australia makeup products popping up in reviews on different blogs I decided that I wanted to try a few things from their line. (lemming lemming lemming) I made a beeline for my nearest Big W and picked up some of the items that I liked the look of. For some reason I was really in the mood for a grey eye look that night, so I also stopped off at the Australis counter on my way past and picked up one of their eye palettes and a few of their lip products. Items pictured above: Australis Intensifeye Wet/Dry Eyeshadow in The Big Smoke, Australis Lip Gloss in Sassy, Australis Lip Gloss in Happy, Face of Australia High Definition Liquid Eyeliner in Brown, Face Of Australia Eye Definer Pencil in Charcoal, Face Of Australia Eye Definer Pencil in Purple, Australis Lip Butter in Ringa Rosy, Face Of Australia Eye Primer in Shimmer, Face Of Australia Eyeshadow in Pearl & Face of Australia Blusher in Outback Primrose.
