Face of Australia Divine Shine Lip Plumpers

 Face of Australia is a solid brand that consistently comes up with stellar products, that remain kind on the purse. Though I am generally a lipstick loving girl, when the time comes to gloss it up I often crave a bit of minty tingle. Formulated with Ginger, Cinnamon and Menthol, these Divine Shine Lip Plumpers combine the minty tingle with a bit of warmth that I find perfect for winter (Ginger is the winner here) The two shades I own from this range are Lavish Instinct and Sterling Blossom.
Lavish Intinct* is a bronzed neutral, and not something  I have a dupe for in my collection. I tend to wear brighter shades, but am planning on trying this over a nude lippy and pairing it with a bronzed smoky eye. I saw Sterling Blossom at my local FOA stand, and knew she was to be my princess. I love the bright colour in the tube, and I also love the sheered out shade that develops on my lips when I wear this. I always get compliments when I wear this, which naturally deepens my love for it!

I adore the packaging of these glosses, they feel classic and sturdy despite the low price tag. I'm not sure about the plumping capabilities of these glosses, but it's not what I'd buy them for anyway.I would recommend these to just about anyone, the tingle and gingery scent take a while to get used to but I think most would learn to love it, just as I did.

Face of Australia's Divine Shine Lip Plumpers retail for $10.95 for 9.4g.
Stockists include Priceline, Big W,Kmart and selected pharmacies Australia wide.

(*Note, the Lavish Instinct shade was sent to me for consideration, and impressed me so much I ventured out and bought Sterling Blossom with my own pennies.)
(*Note, the last two images prove I have been spending a fair chunk of time watching Yas over at Primped. Guilty as charged!)

  3. Karagh- It's such a pretty pink, I wore it today over a pink lippy and it made it pop!

    Michelle- I was a bit iffy about the ginger but now I find myself reapplying just to have a sniff!

  4. Really like the way you look the photos! To compare the colour from the tube to it on your lips! I received this last week, I am a bit u decided about the ginger at the moment!

  5. Thanks Kirsten, it took me quite a while to decide whether or not I liked the scent. And I love taking photos like that, I think beauty is fun and it's nice to be silly sometimes=)
