The “Bad Skin Day” Edit

Full Coverage Foundations

So we’ve perused your ‘My Skin But Better’ options, ideal for those days when you are wanting your own skin to be the star of the show – well, how about on those days where the good skin gods decide that today they hate you and you’re needing a bit of help in the blemish/redness/dark spot disguising department? These are the bases that have your back…

Australis Full On Foundation in Nude SwatchAustralis Full On Foundation in Nude, currently $9.95 at Priceline.

This baby is first cab off the rank because I luuurrve it. This nifty stick foundation has a very creamy texture and at first swatch you might think “Whoa, that seems really thick” but actually blends in beautifully and doesn’t feel at all heavy on the skin. I’ve been applying with a mixture of my RT Expert Brush and fingers, and it leaves a matte, flawless finish. I repeat, FLAWLESS. The only drawback I can see with the Full On range is the limited shade selection for paler gals – there are six available and Nude seems to be the lightest, but to me it’s a bit more ‘medium’. But – back on the positives – the price is pretty fabulous, and it has an SPF 30, and the longevity of wear rocks. Top marks Australis.

    That Australis foundations sounds amazing! Got to love their affordable prices. Shame about the colour range though, I’ll have to check them out next time I’m in Priceline x

      Australis has impressed me so much lately, and you really can’t go past their price points! Definitely do :) x

    All of these sound ah-mazing. I haven’t really heard much about the Australis, I’m a bit turned off by the name if I’m honest! It really sounds great though, and the price is right! Jodi from Goo roo beauty raves about that Innoxa foundation! It sounds lovely :)

      At first swatch of the Australis, I was like there is no way this is EVER going to look nice. But low and behold, somehow it does! And I figured for $10, it wouldn’t hurt too much if I didn’t like it :) The Renew foundation is the first Innoxa product I’ve tried and I’m so impressed!

    Seriously, your new scrolling thing is SO AWESOME. I have so much fun clicking the arrows, hehe (excuse this weirdo). I don’t think I can pick a fave out of your picks, they all look so smooth and good coverage! And I can so relate to this post, I swear the skin gods hate me 24/7.

      Bahaha I like scrolly posts too, for the same reason! Those damn skin gods… wish I knew how to keep them on my side more :)

    I have also been reaching for the Australis Full On foundation for less than amazing skin days. I can’t believe how nice it looks considering the full coverage. I’ve read a few good reviews of the Innoxa foundation, I must try it!

      Yes the Full On foundation really surprised me, it’s not the type of thing I’ve reached for in the past, but the finish is just so nice, and the price is pretty fantastic as well :) Yep the Innoxa is great, definitely worth having a try! x
