Drugstore Cosmetics Launches for Australia -- October 2013

We're in the 10th month of the year guys! Only a little less than two months and it'll be Christmas! Honestly, I'm not sure if I should be feeling happy or sad... The year is flowing by too quick and I feel like I've not yet accomplished anything. Boo!


Australis has launched a few products recently. I haven't seen these in person yet, but they should already be in store if you are interested! 

  • CC Cream ($12.95/3 shades) -- Like what CC creams are suppose to do.. This CC Cream is suppose to act as a multi-tasking face make-up product that evens out the skin tone and provide flawless coverage with a soft matte finish. Locks in moisture and has a colour correcting ability which brightens and neutralises redness and pigmentations.
  • Tint My Brow ($9.95/3 shades) -- Lightweight brow tint which enables you to tint, define and control with an easy-to-use brush applicator. Claims to remain flawless through all conditions!
  • Eyeshadow Cream Duo ($9.95/3 shades) -- An intensely coloured eyeshadow cream duo which keeps you covered for both day and night looks! Glides on creamy and dries to an "ultra intense colour with a light metallic spark".

Face Of Australia Budgeproof Gel Eyeshadows ($8.95/8 shades)
These were launched some time ago. I wasn't aware of their existence until I dropped down to my local Big W @_@ Described to be velvety smooth eyeshadows, these are long-lasting with an intensely rich formula. Can be applied for a subrtle colour or layered for a more intense effect. Lasts all day without fading and budging. 

Face Of Australia Carnivale! Limited Edition Nail Collection ($5.95/8 shades)
New Face Of Australia nail collection! Yeeyeyeyeyeyey! Inspired by a circus carnivale theme, the collection features four matte shades and four glittering shades. YES! Glitter shades!

Okay, then there's Bourjois who's also launching a spankin' new range of face products for ya!

  • Happy Light Foundation ($29/4 shades) -- A liquid foundation that enhances your radiance while concealing imperfections. Lasts for 16 hours with a supple texture. Offers an undectectable finish and contains an active moisturiser to let the skin breathe.

What do you have your eyes on?

Sally Hansen Sugar Coats for me pleaaaaaaaaaaaaase!


  1. I've looked everywhere for the Essence Shimmer Pearls but I've had no luck. I'm hoping they haven't put them out on display and that I may still have a chance!

  2. I've not hear a single thing about the Revlon Mineral foundation! Has it even been released in America yet? It looks quite nice though. The new Bourjois range looks really nice - those primers! And I hope the Australis tinted brow gel has a few shades, because that would be great!

  3. The Australis brow tint and the Bourjois range! I'm so excited! Thanks for posting this up x

  4. I love these posts that you do! I wonder if the Rimmel Stay Matte products are different to their previous ones?

  7. I can't wait for the new Bourjois products. I've heard great things about them from UK bloggers.

    Thanks for linking my review on the Revlon powder :) .... it's so odd that there's no information at all about it. It's like it just appeared out of nowhere.

  8. Ok this might be a stupid question.. But I'm in Australia for a month now and I really want to shop some nail polish! In wich drugstores can you buy Face of Australia and those Ulta3?
