Tinted Moisturizer -Australis - Face and Body Tint

I was really excited for this product to be released! I bought it on sale but it retails for approximately $20, is 94ml and comes in three shades. In revlon colorstay I am an Ivory which is still to pink for my neutral skin but it is hard to find makeup for neutral skin. This tint matches my skin pretty well since it is sheer. I apply this with my fingers as it seems to sink in better when warm. Coverage: Sheer to Light coverage, slightly build-able Smell: it does smell like sunscreen but does not claim to contain spf Texture: creamy Staying Power: I have combination skin and I needed to blot after about 3-4 hours (thats when I was running around at work) Skin Type : Well it suites my combination skin but I think it will work for dry and normal skin too, oily skin may need to blot or powder but don't take my word for it :) over all it is a good product but there are cheaper tinted moisturizers out there that do the same job :)

Firstly the good things: - It does remove makeup well - removes waterproof makeup -smells ok Bad things: -No instructions on the bottle (I thought it was a normal makeup remover so I put some on a cotton pad and it burnt the crap out of my eye so now my vision is all blurry) -No warnings on the packaging - DO NOT get this in your eyes! - The pump broke as soon as I opened it... maybe I just had a dodgy one but it was very frustrating. over all its a good makeup remover but you need to know how to use it... I rub it between my hands then use it the same way I would use a cleanser and wash it off then use my normal face cleanser afterwards. in Australia this retails for about $10-14 which is ok.
STAYPUT FOUNDATION: Since Australis isn't on the data base yet (annoying I know) I shall review it here. Pros: - blendable - lasts (especially with primer) - doesn't break me out - coverage is light/medium -not cakey Cons: - shade range sucks - fair skin and darker skin tons will have a tough time finding shades I think this is suitable for a normal to combo skin type as it can sometimes pick up dry patches and on really oily skin it doesn't last as long. I have the lightest shade and it is a little too dark but I just blend it down :)
Pros: - Great coverage (medium and buildable) - Lasts a long time - Doesn't dry too quickly (I always use a primer underneath) - Doesn't break me out -Doesn't look oily -Readily available in my local priceline or target :) -Looks great in photos -For me its a Matte to semi Matt finish :) -1 bottles last a long time :) Cons: -Expensive for a drugstore foundation (in Aus its roughly $38!!) - I wish it came with a pump!! if anyone knows one that will fit let me know! - Shade range isn't amazing I have the shade 'Buff' and 'Ivory' which I sometimes mix as I have cool, neutral, very pale skin :) I use this when I go out not as an everyday foundation unless I am working :) Let this set by its self before applying powder just so it doesn't look 'cakey' I've gone through 3 bottles?? Love it! <3
Not my go to foundation but its really nice. Pros: Nice colours smooth consistancy buildable coverage doesn't break me out blendable Cons: Colours can be a little yellowish sometimes or a little beige doesn't completely cover my pimple scars can make my chin look 'hairy' if not blended well

I don't hate this product... but I am not much of a fan... 'Fair' is too dark for me, its sticky, doesn't blend easily and smells weird.... it does cover though.. but not for under eyes unless you want the cakey look.... =/ Love hate relationship?

Ok so I recieved this as a gift from my mum for my birthday last week and I have to say I'm not really overy impressed by it... firstly I want to say I love the colour (Ruby sugar 6) but.... it was WAY too sticky and smells kind of like sunscreen mixed with vanilla? lasting power.. well.. if stickyness counts as lasting power I have to say it lasts a long time..
Ok so I was pretty skeptical after reading everyone's comments about this product, however I decided to give it a try anyway. I went to Kit cosmetics and asked the sales lady if she would demonstrate on me to which she very kindly obliged (definitely going back btw she was lovely!) She did one eye and the difference was amazing! I have rather short lashes but this system really made them longer and more false like! I was sold so I bought it. A lot of you say it is hard to remove, I haven't had a problem with it so far but then again I already had my revlon grow luscious underneath it so that could be why. It holds a curl, doesn't fade and lasts a very long time and for people like me who are incredibly clumsy with false lashes this is awesome! You apply the base coat then apply the fluffy Nylon fibres to the TIPS of your lashes (2 coats) then the top coat :)
