Fresh & Flawless Pressed Powder
4.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

This product has often been compared to MAC's Studio Fix Powder (and some reviewers even say it's BETTER than MAC). I'm NC20 and I've tried 3 shades now: Light Beige (too pale and yellow, so requires more bronzer), Natural (perfect), and Deep Natural (perfect on application, but a tad too orange after it oxidizes). Pros: - I LOVE the texture of this powder: makes my troublesome, acne-prone, pockmarked skin feel like SATIN - Great staying power: lasts all day long, which is rare when it comes to powders Cons: - Oxidizes after a few hours (but MOST powders oxidize on my oily skin, so...) - Less coverage than MAC's Studio Fix Powder, but at least this one doesn't get cakey on me - The flip-top lid is really flimsy...afraid it will snap off any moment now - Eucalyptus and clove scent: reminds me of Cover Girl powders back in the 90's. I'd prefer if it were slightly floral instead. - Difficult to find a great shade match because the names and color swatches online aren't reliable - Hard to find online from US retailers Despite the long list of cons, YES I'm still giving it 4 lippies, and YES I'd repurchase. It's no longer available on Amazon, but I'll keep looking!

Get Plumped Lip Plumper
3.0

A sheer light pink lip balm in a squeezy tube. Feels a bit grainy on the lips at first. But if I rub my lips together it melts into a smooth slippery balm which feels moisturising. For the lip plumping part, everyone responds to these type of products differently. This Australis one gives my lips a burning feeling but doesn't actually plump them. Tastes very faintly of vanilla bubble gum, cayenne pepper and cinnamon. Also gives me burning bitter cinnamon chemical taste at the back of my throat. I wouldn't repurchase as it doesn't work for me. Too Faced Lip Injection is the only lip plumper that has actually worked for me so far. It plumps my lips ALOT for around an hour per application.

I don't know how to feel about this powder, it is nice, but not for me. I'll try my best to voice my opinions fairly as preferentially this powder isn't for me. I think looks very nice and it's hard to go too much or wrong with this powder, it really does look flawless. Its hard to make this look cakey. I don't use this as a foundation though as I dont like a matte finish. I probably would adore this if it had a sheen like the hourglass ALPs. I tried using this to set my spot concealing and it did nothing for longevity, the concealer faded after a few hours. I also don't like the packaging, it's very cheap and flimsy, and it has an extra compartment that you flip up and it has a cheaply made thin sponge which is terrible and a mirror which is appreciated but I'd rather it just have the product to slim down, as it's quite bulky or find a better way to store it efficiently, like the MUFE matte velvet powder. Overall it's a very nice powder but just not for me.
