FOTD Featuring Australis IntensifEye Wet/Dry Eyeshadow in Out Of The Blue

About a month ago, I received an email from a reader, Alana, to review the IntensifEye wet/dry eyeshadows from Australis. I’ve only ever tried one eyeshadow from Australis, so I thought, heck, why not? I aim to please :P

There were 4 different colour combinations for the eyeshadow trios. I bought the one in Out of the Blue, since the teal really stood out for me.

When I tested the eyeshadows out at Priceline, they felt like cream shadows. However, when I broke into my brand new palette, it was dry, like regular eyeshadow. I experienced no fallout, although the powders are quite flaky on the palette (ie lots of fallout on the palette when you pick up the eyeshadow with a brush).

As usual, I couldn’t be bothered with the applicator (it was chucked as soon as I removed the plastic cover), and found that the best way to apply the eyeshadows was with my fingers. Makeup brushes just didn’t give me the opacity and consistency I wanted. With my fingers, I patted the colours on the eyelids.

Initially, I was quite skeptical with the eyeshadow, to be honest, given that the previous Australis eyeshadow I used wasn’t all that good. However, I was quite impressed with this one. The colours were very pretty, especially when you blend the light green with the teal.

In terms of longevity, with eye primer on my oily lids, I did not experience any creasing or reduction of shadows (ie powders slipping away with the oil on my lid) until about 5 hours later before the first signs of creasing started to show. I thought that was mighty impressive given that my eyelids are super oily, and most shadows don’t last long, even with eye primer on.

I haven’t the chance to use this “wet” yet; when I do, I’ll update the post with more pictures :)

After trying this Australis wet/dry eyeshadow palette, I’m very keen on getting another one. It has quite a creamy consistency for a dry eyeshadow, very pigmented, not gritty and does not feel cheap.

      Jos: Aww thanks Jos. I still have a lot to learn in makeup and all that. Everytime I post a FOTD post, I keep my fingers tightly crossed that I don’t get a comment “you call THAT a FOTD post? Please practise more before you even attempt to do this”. It’s scary putting ourselves out there.
      Props to you for doing Sara-May’s challenges! I’m still waiting for one that I could actually do; the rest seem so difficult :P

      Celeste: I was impressed, all right. Didn’t think it would come from Australis. Not bad, not bad at all ;)

    Tine: The Aussie beauty blogging community seems super supportive and encouraging, so I feel safe posting FOTDs. I’m my worst critic but I hope I would be ok if I ever get snarky comment :)
