Review: Antipodes Moisture-Boost Natural Lipsticks

Hi Beauties,

I had the lovely pleasure of being at the international launch of Antipodes new, Moisture-Boost Natural Lipsticks*. If you’ve been following the blog for a while, you’ll know I’m a big fan of the Antipodes skincare range, however I haven’t had the opportunity to try their makeup. Their makeup is sold through selected retailers such as David Jones.

Beauty Blender

Applying my foundation with a Beauty Blender is a must! Its vary rare that I use a brush to apply my foundation, however some foundations do work better when applied with a brush. For me the Beauty Blender is easy and creates the most flawless base ever! Click here for a comparison to the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge.

MAC Eye Kohl- Teddy

I’ve been so time poor in the morning that I haven’t had time to wear eyeshadow on a daily basis. My go to when I’m running late is to apply some Teddy eyeliner to my top lash liner and waterline for some added definition.

Hylamide Photography Foundation*

This is a goldy toned liquid highlighter, but can be used mixed in with foundation or primer. Personally, I like it as a liquid highlighter as a base to my powder highlighter.

Moisturisers on Rotation

Hey beauties,

Are you like me and extremely fussy with face moisturisers? I always struggle to find a moisturiser I love, but turns out when it rains it pours! And now I have four favourites that I wanted to share with you. Disclaimer; I have oily to combination skin.

Antipodes Manuka Honey Skin Brightening Light Day Cream*

When I was going through my organic skincare phase, this was my go to. I love that its light weight, but still creamy and hydrating, without making me oily. I used this morning and night and found that my skin had a good amount of hydration. At night, I did add a few drops of facial oil for a boost of hydration. If you’re interested in organic skincare, or want a moisturiser that’s light and still rich than the Antipodes Day Cream is a must!

Skinstitut Moisture Defence Ultra Dry*

This moisturiser is targeted at dry skin, so I didn’t expect it to work for me. However it worked great with my oily/ combination skin! I use about a pea size in the morning and a bit more in the evening. I was also really surprised that even though this was a rich moisturiser targeted at dry skin, it didn’t make me oily throughout the day. I think this moisturiser would suit all skin types except extremely oily. Skinstitut also have the same moisturiser but targeted at oily skin, but I haven’t had a chance to try it yet.
