We love adding new products to the SLCF family. Before we do though, we like to give everything a good test. Swatches, using them for a day or two and of course, seeing what you guys think.
We have been playing around with a handful of new items from Australis over the past week or so and thought it would be a good idea to see what you all think, what's the point of stocking something that gets the thumbs down from the majority?
You guys helped us with our Metallix Blog and loved them, so I'm sure you'll love what we have to show today. We sure do.
We are trying 5 different products that are all makeup basics, nothing that will blow the budget either, that's the great thing about Australis, they make really lovely quality things for such a reasonable price.
First of all the new Cya Later Pores Spot Primer. What is it? A spot primer that creates a flawless base and smooth complexion whilst minimising the appearance of pores and other imperfections. A non-greasy and moisturising primer.
It contains Vitamin E to moisturise, silicone to control oily skin and pores and almond oil to promote healthy skin.
Our Thoughts / This has such a smooth, silky finish, your skin feels super sleek after application. It creates a really nice base for any makeup you apply and smoothed out pores around the nose area too. Win. It goes a really long way as well, so this will definitely last you a while.
Next are the Lip Liners/ Lip Pencils, which are a best seller so we had to add those to the testing pile. We have two really popular shades, Nudie Rudie and Tickled Pink. These contain vitamin E and C and claim to be soft, easy glide lip pencils for simple precise application. A long-lasting, smudge-free and anti-feathering pencil.
Our Thoughts / They are indeed really soft, they don't drag and are long lasting. The colours are perfect for anyone looking for a couple of shades to start their kit. One of course is a classic beige nude, it's not too light that you'll look like you are wearing concealer as liner and the other a mauve, rose pink which is a gorgeous shade.
Third on the list is a classic Brow Pencil. You just can't go wrong with this staple. This eyebrow pencil is a must have in any makeup bag.
Our Thoughts / It's such a handy makeup item to have as it has the brush attached to the lid so you can brush the hairs into place and then use the pencil to fill in or define. The formula is really smooth and you only need a light hand when applying the product. This comes in 4 different shades so there's bound to be one to match you.
Last but not least is the Tint My Brow, Brow Tint. We have the shade blonde which is perfect for those with really light brow shades. It's said to be a lightweight formula that doesn’t look overdone, while enabling you to tint, define and control with an easy-to-use brush applicator.
Our Thoughts / Definitely easy to use and definitely tints and defines. The product adds just the right amount of colour whilst securing them in place. A 2 in 1 which is awesome. The perfect size for your on-the-go makeup bag too!
Overall / We couldn't fault these products. They do what they say, they are affordable, they are all cruelty free and vegan aside from the Dark Brown Brow Pencil.
