Review - Australis Fresh & Flawless Pressed Powder in 'Darkest Brown'

Today I am reviewing Australis 'Fresh and Flawless' pressed powder. Australis, as obviously the name suggests, is an Australian company which provides high quality affordable drugstore products. Australis 'Fresh and Flawless' pressed powder is a fine, oil free and fragrance free powder, perfect for everyday and on the go, since its mirrored and does not make a dent to your pocket :).
My shade is 'Darkest Brown'. I apply this with Models Prefer MPP100 brush. So without much ado, lets see the good and the bad.




Swatches

The Good
  1. Very fine powder, does not look cakey when applied over foundation. 
  2. Decent coverage, surely build-able.
  3. Good to wear on its own over concealer or over foundation.
  4. Affordable and easy availability. 
  5. Lasts well. 
  6. Oil free and fragrance free.
  7. Nice sturdy packaging, easy to close and open with a click.
  8. Has a mirror inside, good for on the go touch ups.
  9. A lot of Australian youtubers have mentioned this to be very similar to MAC Studio Fix Powder and have even done comparisons. 

The Bad
  1. Available only in Australia & New Zealand.
  2. Limited color selection.

The Price

11.40 for 12gms product. Try picking it up on sale !

Where to buy

Available at Big W, Kmart, Target, Priceline, selected pharmacies. You can also shop from the Australis
website

Have you tried this? What do you think ?

  2. I've not tried this but seems like a good product (especially if it's comparable to MAC) that is relatively affordable as well!
