To many, mineral makeup is more than just a beauty fad. It can be seen as an extension to a skincare routine, based on the perceived benefits of it being healthier for our skin than traditional makeup. Although it’s a relatively recent beauty trend, mineral makeup has been used for thousands of years, its use dating back to ancient cultures like the Egyptians (think Cleopatra eyes).
But what makes mineral makeup so different to the traditional forms of makeup, and more importantly, what makes it BETTER in the eyes of many consumers?

Girlactik has always been one of those US brands I’ve been dying to try, yet are really hard to come by in Australia. Well, things are about to get a whole lot of easier. Introducing one of the latest new cosmetics retailers to hit Aussie shores, The Beauty Drawers. I was incredibly flattered to be selected as a brand ambassador for The Beauty Drawers, who will be making it more accessible to find some hard-to-aquire brands in Australia like Pixi Beauty, Viseart, Ere Perez, Girlactik, Milani Cosmetics, and so many more.
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’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!
