Australis Fresh and Flawless pressed powder

Hey there internet lovelies. It’s review time and imma jump right into it today.


Does it sit well over your foundation?: Yes it doesn’t cling awkwardly or look to heavy over foundation, even full coverage ones.
Translucent?: It’s not translucent, so if you looking to cream highlight and contour this isn’t the powder you want to set those two with.
Does it keep your makeup in place?: It does do a good job at keeping my makeup from transforming so I have no complaints there.
Flashback?: While I rarely take flash photos, this isn’t a HD powder nor is it white in color so I think it’s safe to not worry about any issues regarding flashback.
Shade range?: It’s now available in 6 shades. I’m in the shade natural.
Packaging: I’ll admit that the original packaging of this powder was way more better looking but what can you do. There aren’t any major issues with the packaging it doesn’t have a lid that comes loose so you don’t have to worry about possibly losing it.
Formula: It has a nice smooth buttery formula, it’s not chalky or dusty and just easily applies onto the face.
Who would like this: People not wanting to spend a lot of money on a setting powder, peeps who like pressed setting powders.
Who wouldn’t like this?: people who have a very picky skin tone and may not find a good shade. Those of you who are looking for something to set under eye concealer with. This powder doesn’t do well at setting under eye concealer.
Price?: $12.95
Availability: Priceline and the Australis site primarily. It’s an Australian brand peeps so international folks probably will have little or no access to this product.
Rating: 7/10
Overall thoughts?: This is a pretty good setting powder, I’m not overly fussy with setting powders as long as they don’t make my face look super powdery and cakey I’m a happy chap.
Would I repurchase this?: Yes. It’s a good powder, affordable and being that it’s pressed I’d select this to travel with over a loose powder.


That’s it for today’s post. What setting powders do you guys love? Tell me about them in the comments below.

    Sounds like you are getting on well with this powder! I usually prefer my setting powders to be translucent as I can find others make me look a bit patchy!

    The majority of my face powders are translucent, this is one happens not to be. I do find translucent to be easier for the most part.
