Posts in High Definition Brightener

Way back in April this year, Australis made waves in the beauty industry with their red hot new releases for the Paparazzi Perfect High Definition range. I have previously told you about their amazing eyeshadow palettes and their tinted moisturiser, both of which were winners for me. Today they extend that award winning collection with 2 more products, a concealer and a brightener.

Both items come in a cute 10ml squeeze tube and I think that is a perfect size for both items because only a small amount is required and I hate it when you get a big tube of something only for half of it to dry out before you can use it. This size is far more waste-friendly. They also have a slightly floral, cosmetic smell. It isn’t unpleasant or overwhelming but I think it is worth noting for those who are sensitive to fragrances.

Now, on to the products. Concealers are something I judge very seriously. Even though my under eye dark circles have improved dramatically, it still only takes 1 day of not doing my skincare routine for them to turn into hellish darkness. Brighteners on the other hand am rather indifferent about because, really, I am yet to find a brightener that actually brightens my skin. In my case, most brighteners are just too yellow and my skin is too white for them.

Both these items from Australis can be worn together, so that is what I am going to show you today. In my reviews below, you will I preferred to use this separately but I think those with a regular, yellow based skin tone will be able to use these together to get the intended result. My pictures below are taken with clean skin, so there is no other makeup on at all! (Be kind).

NO make-up …. oh, the horrors!

Female Hair Loss Before and After

Female hair loss and hair thinning are a growing sector within the beauty market. I used to think female hair loss was a beauty issue and as such could be treated with beauty products. Self-inflicted hair loss is my most common concern. I blamed my tight braids, hair irons and chemical damage. However, the fact remains that the leading causes for female hair loss are health related.

When my normal amount of hair fall dramatically increased, with noticeable receding of my hairline, I panicked. I didn’t know where to begin with treating it but I couldn’t understand why it was happening. I’d stop styling my hair in tight do’s, I rarely heat style and I haven’t dyed my hair in almost 2 years. I ruled out self-inflicted hair loss so I went straight to my GP (doctor) to ask for advice. It turns out that my female hair loss was completely reversible for less than $20!  Continue Reading

If you follow beauty on Instagram it’s highly likely you’ve seen the Trefiel Lace Sheet Mask. They look like a piece of black lace, often seen adorning the faces of cute beauty influencers. What they actually are is a range of sheet masks. Really pretty sheet masks.

Trefiel initially launched with just the Moisturising mask but later rebranded and added 3 more masks to the line-up. I chose to review their original Moisturising Face Mask.  Continue Reading
