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 🙂
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
