Foundation, foundation, foundation!

I've been meaning to buy these products for a while now and just yesterday I had the opportunity to go and pick them up.

The first is the Australis Fresh and Flawless powder. Many compare it to MAC's Studio Fix powder and for $11.40 it is a much more affordable powder foundation.

Its a fuller coverage and I like to dust it over the top of my set makeup when I need a little bit of extra coverage. I do it over the top of my foundation routine otherwise I end up using way too much product if I use it as my setting powder and it's not only a waste of product but it can also get quite cakey on my skin.

I think this would be better suited to a more oily skin type and although I am quite dehydrated, with the right skincare, this still works for my skin.

This is the lightest shade I could see and surprisingly it's more yellow-toned as opposed to pink! I think I personally need to apply a light layer of fake tan or get some more colour before this matches PERFECTLY on my skin.

The next is the infamous Nude by Nature mineral powder. I have wanted to try this for a while but all of the shades that I was aware of were so pink and would look absolutely ridiculous on my skin tone. I am an NC15 so very fair and quite yellow-toned and when I saw this colour in "Light", I knew it was probably going to be the best suited colour for me.

This was a little more on the pricey side at about $40. I have only tried it once so I am not quite sure yet how much I like it and if i could justify spending the money on a loose powder again. I generally go through loose powders very very quickly as I like to build coverage on my skin so we'll see how this goes.

Blog inspiration

If you want to check out one of my favorite fashion blogers, head over to Third and Vision for some fashion and blog inspiration. I love scrolling through Bel's pics in lectures, at home, when i'm lacking inspiration.... I could go on and on and on.

Here's a sneak peak of her posts!
