Australian Beauty Stars

Australia Day is upon us once more, and I thought it an appropriate time to sit down and pull out some Australian products from my stash to share with you all. I will be honest and admit that I don’t really think of where a brand is based when making a decision to purchase, so I am glad to see so many stellar Australian brands that have crept into my collection.  Here are some of the Aussie beauty stars in the Bovary household!
Napoleon Perdis Blush Patrol
Nvey Eco Nourishing Bronzer in Oasis*
Face of Australia  pressed powder in Bronze*

My favourite from this bunch would have to be the Face of Australia offering, as I adore the sleek and slim compact. The colour is quite shimmery, so a light hand is recommended to get that world renowned Aussie beach babe glow!

Face and Eyes:
Sportsgirl Get Cheeky Cheek & Eye Shimmer
Face of Australia blush in Hello Dolly
Sportsgirl Get Cheeky in Rose
Nvey Eco eyeshadow in 162*
Sportsgirl Shady Lady eye colour in Prom Night
Face of Australia Liquid Liner in black
Face of Australia Loose Powder in Outback Translucent*

My favourites include the FOA liquid liner and loose powder, they are seriously hard working and so easy on the purse that it is quite hard to believe.  
Lanolips Lip Ointments in Apples, Lemonaid, Mulberry* and  Sunshine
Sukin Nourishing Lip Treatment*
Grown Alchemist Watermelon & Vanilla lip balm*
Face of Australia lipstick in Malibu Barbie
Lipstick Queen lipstick in Saint Red*

I am loving all of these nourishing lip products this summer, but Malibu Barbie is such a happy shade of pick that it takes the cake!
Urban Rituelle Organic Hand Cream with lemongrass, lemon myrtle, grapefruit and eucalyptus
MOR hand cream in Cassis Noir
Endota Spa Lemon & Organic Sugar body scrub*
Sukin Wellbeing Body Oil*
Urban Rituelle Cotton Candy perfume*
The Sukin Wellbeing Oil is so amazing, I am hoping that they decide to cancel its status as ‘limited edition’ and keep that baby on the shelf forever. Massage oil, moisturiser, hair tamer, it seriously does it all and smells brilliant. The Urban Rituelle Cotton Candy is finally back out in a 100ml bottle, I have been clutching the purse sized spray that I bought and not wanting to waste it, and am so happy to now have this to clutch instead.
Sukin Facial Moisturiser*
Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist
Grown Rose Absolute, Ginseng & Chamomile Facial Toner*
The Jojoba Company Antioxidant Serum*
Australis Make-Up Finishing Spritz*
The Jojoba Company Intense Recovery Balm*
Simplicite One Step Exfoliating Cleanser*
Simplicite Plant Gel Cleanser*
Of course Jurlique had to be mentioned when writing about great Australian brands, they have products of such a high quality with beautiful packaging, and I love the indulgence they bring to my beauty routine. Sukin are also an amazing low cost brand, I recommend them to people all the time and love their clean packaging and affordable skincare.
Did you know that all of these products were true blue? If you are a fellow Aussie, I would love to know how you are spending today (or the public holiday on Monday!) If you are one of my beloved International readers, I am curious to know what your perceptions of our country really are? Would love to hear from you in the comments!
