Happy Australia Day!
I hope you all are having a fantastic day doing all those Australian things like: having a barbecue eating lots of seafood, drinking beer, enjoying the weather and just celebrating all that being Australian means. The freedom & opportunities we have that others may not be fortunate enough to have.
My Top 5 Australian Lipsticks are:
Chi Chi Viva La Diva - Super Socialite $18.95
This lipstick is incredibly smooth and moisturising on the lips. Plus the colour is gorgeous, one of my favourite shades of pink. Chi Chi is a brand I have a soft spot for, I remember my Mum purchasing me some Chi Chi items when I was a teenager and first getting into make up.
Innoxa Lovely Lips Lipstick - Pink Peony $14.95
For a 'drugstore' brand Innoxa have some amazingly bright colours. I love this bright pink shade, it is very pigmented and creamy but still wears well. Innoxa also have some fantastic matte lipsticks.
Savoir Faire Lipstick - Miss You $48.00
I received this lipstick in a Bella Box some time ago. Firstly look at that amazing packaging! I haven't seen a lipstick quite like it before. This lipstick is really moisturising and comfortable to wear. It is a sheer nude that with my lip colour, just adds soft shine and a healthy look to my lips. The only bad thing about this lipstick? It tastes really good so I end up licking it off my lips..
Face of Australia Lip Quench Lipstick - Lychee Crush $9.45
I don't know why I haven't mentioned these lipsticks before. They are great! Very pigmented and smooth on the lips. Lychee Crush is one of the few full on nude lipsticks that I can wear that doesn't look like I put concealer on my lips. Also has a SPF30+ which is fantastic (and quite rare in a lipstick).
Australis Colour Inject Mineral Lipstick - Lick the Icing $12.95
This lipstick made it to the Top 5 Light Pink Lipsticks list too. It is a gorgeous baby pink that feels lovely on the lips. A strongish smell though but doesn't make it a bad lipstick.
I realised as I wrote this post that besides lipsticks I don't have many Australian brands in my collection. I don't know why, I should try more Aussie products. Anyway I hope you have had (and continue to have) a fantastic Australia Day.
What are some great Australian brands I should try? What did you do for Australia Day?
