Full Face of AUSTRALIS First Impressions

Australis is a home grown Aussie brand that has affordable makeup in all areas from lips to eyes and face! I recently went a bit ham on some of their products and thought I would do a full face of first impressions so we can try them out together!

Foundation:

For foundation I got the Fresh &Flawless Foundation in Natural Fawn. It’s a medium-full coverage foundation with matte finish which I quite like for nights out as it is mostly a bit longer wearing that dewy foundations. First off, the colour was a great match and the coverage was a nice medium coverage so some of my freckles still pocked through and I didn’t look like a cake face. It applied really evenly with a Flat Top Kabuki Brush and built really nicely when I applied a second layer around my nose and cheeks where I generally need a bit more coverage! A+ from me!

Concealer:

To highlight down the centre of my face and under my eyes I used the Concealer Stick in Light. It has great coverage and blended so easily (again with a Flat Top Kabuki Brush)! You could definitely use a different shade if you needed to cover any blemishes but I found that the foundation did that for me!

Setting Powder:

To set the areas I had concealed I used the banana shade from the Take Me On Tour Contouring & Highlighting Kit. I can’t find the kit on the website but I would look in store in Kmart or Priceline to see if they have any available. Otherwise they do have a Banana Powder  that I believe is the same product in a single format. This is one of the silkiest banana powders I have used! It’s so buttery and doesn’t leave your face looking super dry! I definitely recommend this!

Brows:

For brows I used the Tint my Brow in Light Brown. I have heard so much about this brow gel but for some reason never got around to trying it out! It applied really nicely and the colour match was great! It isn’t my favourite tinted brow gel but for the price I think it’s a great starter for those that are new to makeup!

Cheeks:

To sculpt my face I used the contour and highlight shade from the same Take Me On Tour Contouring and Highlighting Kit and OH MY GOODNESS… I AM IN LOVE! This whole palette is absolutely incredible! Australis – if this is discontinued pleeaassee make it permanent! Everybody needs this in their life! Like the banana shade they are sooo buttery and smooth and look amazing on the skin! Stunning! I found this highlight on their website but hopefully the kit is still in Priceline or Kmart! You need this kit! Run,don’t walk!

Eyes:

To sculpt my socket I used the contour shader from the palette and then used the Eyeliner Pencil in Blackest Black to create some depth in the outer corner of my top lid and lower lash line! This was so easy to blend out with a blending brush and super easy to apply! Then I used the Metallix Cream Eyeshadow in Pearl Jammin’  on the inner two thirds of my lid to add some sparkle! I found this a little bit tricky to apply as it broke up a little especially when I tried to blend it but I’m sure once I get the technique right it will be easy and I definitely want to keep trying as it looked so amazing on! Do any of you own these eyeshadows? What’s your favourite way to apply them? After highlighting my brow bone with the same highlighter I used before I finished off my eyes with the Fierce Eyes Volumising Mascara which is INCREDIBLE! It’s super black and made my eyelashes look so long and full – I’ll definitely keep using it!

Lips:

For lips, I decided to go nude and used their Colour Inject Moisturising Mineral Lipstick in shade Mambo all over my lips! The formula was so creamy and beautiful on the lips, I am for sure going to stock up on some other shades.

So there you have it – my thoughts on some Australis products! All in all I was super impressed with the products I tried and will definitely be trying more from their brand! What is your favourite Australis product? What should I try next?

Stay Happy,
