This coming Saturday The Plastic Diaries will turn 2 years old. To celebrate, we are hosting 5 fabulous giveaways. Let’s take a look at what is up for grabs today …

Australis Cosmetics Paparazzi Perfect Eyeshadow Palette & Eyeshadow Primer

I couldn’t finish off my week of competitions without including some goodies from one of my favourite Australian beauty brands, Australis Cosmetics. I use and love a huge variety of their products but some I couldn’t live without. The two products in this competition are ones I think every girl should have in her beauty kit.  Continue Reading

With our postal services chock-a-block with christmas care packages being sent to loved ones, I thought it would be fun to send out my own little beauty-inspired care package. To make it a bit different, I am going to make it all about Australian brands. If you didn’t know already, I am quite proud of our Australian beauty market and I don’t think it is fair for me to keep it all to myself.

The Competition

Up for grabs in this competition is what I would call ‘Australian Essentials’. Skincare, Suncare and of course … Fake Tan.  Continue Reading

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!

Paparazzi Perfect High Definition Concealer

What Australis Say: Australis Paparazzi Perfect High Definition Concealer provides a soft finish that corrects colour on dark circles, red pigmentation as well as uneven skin tone. Vitamin E and calendula oil lock in moisture, soothe and provide an anti-inflammatory for the skin. High definition skin balancing pigments provide soft focus and light reflection effects for a flawless result. Medium coverage, long lasting formula. Available in Light-Medium and Medium-Dark.

What I Say: Firstly, I am testing out Light-Medium Continue Reading

First and most importantly, The Plastic Diaries turns the big 1 today. Yes, on 26 May 2010, we went live with the first proper blog post. I don’t count anything really before that time because it was more of an online personal rambling about my nose job, and I think only my mother read it. Anyway, today is The Plastic Diaries’ first birthday. WOOOOOO!

In all seriousness though, reaching the 1 year mark is a HUGE deal to me. I won’t go into it all now but I just want to say I will have a very special post on Monday (May 30) to celebrate, and it will involve the BIGGEST giveaway we have done. You will not want to miss it.

Now onto today’s post. It has been quite some time since I last updated you on competitions or giveaways that are happening around the web world, so I thought I would delay normal programming for a day and sneak in this little post. Continue Reading
