Australis Cosmetics Haul!

I have been looking for a new foundation.  We are coming into summer and it is about to get extremely hot and humid and this is the time where my makeup starts to break down.  I had already decided that I was going to try something from Australis Cosmetics as I haven’t tried a foundation from them before and they are a great Australian, cruelty-free brand SO when they had a 48hr flash sale last week where everything on their website was 50% off I thought it was the perfect time to try some face products from their range.

I haven’t tried these products yet so this is going to be a haul rather than a first impression or review but I look forward to feeding back to you with some reviews once I have given these a really good try 🙂

'Fresh and Flawless Pressed Powder' in Natural

‘Fresh and Flawless Pressed Powder’ in Natural

The ‘Fresh and Flawless Pressed Powder’ is one of the most popular Australis products so I am excited to give it a go.  They advertise it as being a 2-in-1 foundation and pressed powder so we will see what kind of additional coverage it offers.

'Mix it Foundation' in Nude

The ‘Mix it  Colour Correcting Foundation’ claims to be a creamy, light-weight, water based formula that will provide medium coverage.  I am hoping that the water-based formula of this foundation will hold up to the summer humidity without breaking down too quickly!

'Stay Put Longwear Foundation!' in Nude

‘Stay Put Longwear Foundation!’ in Nude

This foundation claims to be long-lasting, smudge-free and contains a SPF15 with up to 16 hours of wear.  If you live in Australia you know that SPF is really important and again, I’m keen to put that ‘long-lasting’ claim to the test through the summer heat.

'CC Foundation' in Nude

I actually brought this ‘CC foundation’ out of pure curiosity.  I haven’t used a CC cream before and at 50% off – it seemed like a good time for experimentation.  I do get redness on my cheeks so I am hoping that this may help to colour-correct that.

Pretty Pastels Palette

Lastly, as an impulse buy, I picked up the ‘Pretty Pastels Palette.’  This palette looks like it will be good for travel.  It contains a face powder which is a good colour match for me as well as a blush and bronzer, and three eyeshadows.  The colour products in here all contain some shimmer but they are certainly pretty pastels.

So that is my Australis 50% off haul.  Australis do ship internationally so if you are interested you can find their online store here.  If you sign up to their newsletter you get a 25% off coupon which is a good deal.

Have a great day cruelty-free makeup lovers!
