Hello there. Long time no see. What have you been up to? I had a baby four months ago so both beauty and writing about beauty have been low on my priority list. Since giving birth to my second son, I’ve resembled a crazy lady. Now I’m slowly finding my way out of the baby fog with the goal to spend more time doing things I enjoy. It’s good to be back …
Product/Price: Australis Powder Cream. It’s a 3-in-1 concealer, foundation, powder with SPF 15. Find it for $14.50 at Priceline, Kmart, Big W and selected pharmacies or shop online.
Verdict (yay or nay): I’ve been planning to get this review up for ages. Disclaimer: the packaging has changed but the product is still the same.
When I bought this I was after something that would be quick and easy to apply. I’m just going to be a straight shooter and say, I hated this foundation. It’s flakey, hard to blend and looked unnatural around my hairline. It sat in my pores like a clogged drain and felt heavy on my skin. The coverage was very light and not suitable for my freckly, wrinkly skin. Worse of all, it was very itchy.
I also used the Australis foundation brush instead of the sponge that came with it but it didn’t make a difference. So I tried to blend bits into my primer and apply it like a tinted foundation but that was still no good. So this gets a nay for me. Sorry that my first post is a bit of a downer. I’ve got some yays coming up soon so watch this space.
