Colour correcting is the technique of using coloured concealers to neutralise complexion issues such as redness, dark under eye circles and dull skin. It’s based on the colour theory that opposite colours on the colour wheel cancel out each other and are neutralised.
The original L’Oreal Infallible has become somewhat of a cult classic drugstore foundation all over the world. So when L’Oreal revealed it would be bringing the next version of their Infallible range to Australia, many were anticipating the range to be one of the best drugstore new releases in Australia. With the Infallible Pro Glow only just being released in Australia (yet so popular overseas), we have now had the pleasure of experiencing the Total Cover range in our stores for quite a while now while we waited!
I find coordinated gift sets some of the cutest gifts going around, so when I found that Bellabox released their ‘Bellobox’ subscription service a few years ago for men to go along with the female ‘Bellabox’ counterpart I instantly became interested.
I’m slowly becoming more and more of a lip product junkie every day, so when I received a gorgeous package of the Luminous Lipsticks* from SASH Cosmetics Australia, I was so keen to dive in and try them out. You all know I’m fairly passionate at finding Australian cosmetic companies who deliver on quality and price!
SASH Cosmetics is a brand spanking new Australian Cosmetics company, their first release being their range of Luminous Lipsticks. Their mission statement is to basically eliminate the hardships of finding high quality yet affordable cosmetics in Australia. Their lipsticks claim to be of a superior quality yet retail for only $16.95. They have 12 shades in their range, from nudes to mauves, deep reds and browns. They are paraben free, and cruelty-free, using only candelilla wax and microcrystalline wax. Perfect considering more and more people these days are making the switch to cruelty-free cosmetics.
Welcome to my next instalment in my ‘Brand Spotlight’ series!
I’m all for finding genuine Australian companies who are cruelty-free, good quality and better yet, affordable and accessible to the everyday consumer. One brand who has really gotten my support recently is Natural Glamour. They provide diversity in coverage, skin tone and levels of SPF in their products to cover all women whilst protecting them from harsh UV rays. They do this, so that we can protect our skin more effectively whilst radiating our natural, sun-kissed beauty, something that Australian women are very well known for!
Generally, I’m pretty horrible with committing to finishing products I’ve opened, because I get too excited about things I buy or receive that I just want to open up and try everything I own! However recently, I’ve really challenged myself to completely use up products I have opened, and to only open another product when I need to. Of course, this isn’t true for EVERYTHING. It’s pretty much impossible to only use up one product in category, and being a beauty blogger I do receive quite a few products for editorial consideration so I have a responsibility to open and use up products to create my content – but I’m trying to as best I can. It’s what people called ‘shopping your stash’ or ‘shopping your beauty cupboard’. It’s money saving – because you don’t throw out products that go old because you don’t use them up – and it’s also a more economical way to live.
Innoxa is one of my favourite Australian affordable and cruelty-free cosmetic brands, and I totally feel like they aren’t spoken about enough. I fell in love with them back when I tried their 5-in-1 BB cream foundation, honestly that stuff is amazing. So I was absolutely over the moon to receive a few of their new releases, including their new VoluLip volume lip crayons which includes 6 shades that are perfect for Spring and Summer.
