Hello everybody! For this blog post I am bringing you a jam packed information blog post about my favourite Face of Australia makeup products, my top3 favourite places to shop and my bucket list, which is something I thought would be quite fun. Before we get into it, I thought I would let you know that there will be a little discussion going on at the end, so if you could contribute and give your ideas I would be eternally grateful! Thanks, enjoy!
One of my favourite Australian cosmetic brands is Face of Australia. I feel that the standard of the products are just as high as other brands that you can buy in your local pharmacy/drugstore, if not higher. All of the products are SO cheap, meaning that they are great for everybody, especially beginners or younger people. I have mentioned a few of these products before on my blog, but I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to speak a bit more in depth about each product.
Concealer in Neutral $9.45
I absolutely love this concealer! The coverage is pretty good, especially with covering redness. As you can see above, the concealer comes in a stick form that winds up. The concealer is really smooth and creamy, allowing easy blending and a smooth look when finished. I use this under my eyes, on my eyelids (as they can get just as dark as the circles under my eyes!) and on any pimples or red spots. I usually use my fingers to blend this in, but sometimes I will use a Nude by Nature angled brush.
ColourMax Palette in Gold Mine $10.95
This eyeshadow palette contains 4 shades that make the perfect neutral but still glam eye. I have had this for quite a while now, and I originally used to use it for its intended purpose; an eyeshadow. I now actually use the brown shade to fill in my eyebrows. I will sometimes use the darker grey shade if I am doing a dramatic eye but I don't actually use this on my eyes anymore. With that aside, it is a fabulous palette to use on your eyes or eyebrows! The pigmentation is of a high enough standard considering the price. When I use this on my eyebrows I use my Nude by Nature small angled brush.
Lasting Looks Lip Creme in Perm Pink $10.95
This lipstick is a light pink that has a semi glossy finish. It is so pigmented and glides on to the lips with such ease. I love the colour as it really can go with anything. It is quite moisturising on the lips thanks to the jojoba oil. I love the packaging as it looks so clean and chic.
Lip Quench Moisturising Lipstick in Peaches and Cream $9.45
This darker pink lipstick is by far my favourite Face of Australia product. I LOVE the colour and pigmentation of this lipstick. The name of the lipstick really matches the quality, it is so moisturising! It actually feels like you are wearing a lip balm! The best part is that it has an SPF of 30 so its even better for you!
For this blog post, carrying on with the information sorta theme, I thought I would share my 3 favourite shops that I frequently buy my clothes at! Some shops are in store only, some are online stores and some are both.
Cotton On is a clothing store that was started in Australia and has now spread to 17 countries over the world. Prices can range from to around $10 to $70. I would have to say, about 60% of my wardrobe is from Cotton On! Some of my favourite items that I have gotten from Cotton On are:
Some items that are on my wishlist from Cotton On are:
Factorie is another Australian based clothing and accessories store that has spread to South Africa, Singapore and other countries. Prices at Factorie range from about $2 (for accessories) to $70, so they are a super affordable choice for high quality clothing. Some of my favourite items that I own from Factorie are:
Some items that are on my wishlist from Factorie are:
ASOS is an international online shop that sells both men and women's fashion. The have ASOS brands the specialise in plus sizes and petite sizes as well as your average 6 - 12 sizes. ASOS stocks many brands so the prices can differ greatly. For example, their occasion wear ranges from around $8 to around $600, depending on the brand. Jeans can range from about $30 to $600, again, depending on the brand.
I currently own one item from ASOS and it is this:
A few items that I would really love from ASOS are:
One thing that I have written and always refer back to is my bucket list. I think it is so much fun to write and even more fun working towards crossing things off. I challenge everybody to write a bucket list! To help get the creative juices flowing, I thought I would share my bucket list! Enjoy!
