Things I Don’t Love – Australis: Powder Cream 3-IN-1

I was tempted by this 3-IN-1 product from Australis because I liked the idea that this could be a good, quick product for days when I am in a real rush and don’t have time for three steps but want that look regardless.  Unfortunately, this product fails on all levels for me and I just don’t love this at all.

Firstly, I purchased this online and the colour is way too dark for me, but it is the lightest shade available in the range.  The cream itself is very thick and I found it kind of hard to blend it out.  It is extremely cakey and catches on every bit of texture on the face.  It sets quite quickly too and I find it hard blend it in before ‘sets’  and dries to a powdery texture so for this reason I don’t think it functions as a foundation (and therefore, neither as a powder).  I have combination skin, but I find this very drying.  Every time I have tried this all over the face my skin has looked terrible!

My next attempt to make this work was to use it just as a concealer, but again, it is just SO cakey and because of the cream to powder formula, it is so hard to blend out smoothly.

I have tried this is few times and it has been such a fail for me that I am already decluttering it.  I really like the idea of this product, but its execution has left me wanting.  While this product hasn’t worked for me, my favourite foundation combination and face powder do come from Australis, so if you would like to read that review you can find it here.

Have a wonderful day!
