One of my favourite drug store items released in recent times is the Face Of Australia Budge Proof Eyeliners. I’ve been wearing the bronze and the electric blue liners so much since I first tried them a month ago- it was hard having to hold off reviewing them until closer to the release date. They are an example of how you can find high end quality products in drug store brands if you know where to look.
The packaging is ingenious- the lid unscrews to reveal the eyeliner pot and a mini eyeliner brush. The brush itself is surprisingly decent quality for something included with product- it is dense and stiff enough to give you good control over the line.
The ultra-smooth, pigment rich formula provides the precision of a liquid liner that’s easy to apply with the built in fool-proof brush. Create thick or thin lines that are perfect every time.
Blackest Black: matte black, semi sheer, requires 2-3 coats for full opacity.
Brilliant Blue: metallic electric blue, opaque in 1 layer.
Espresso: metallic burgundy bronze, opaque in 1 layer.
Pure Purple: metallic lavender, semi sheer.
My favourites are ‘Brilliant Blue’and ‘Espresso’ – both beautifully vivid, highly pigmented colours.

I was very excited to discover that Niva, aka the Face Of Australia Santa had sent me some new release products for Christmas this year. The standout products for me was their Budge Proof Eyeliners, which will be released in February (review coming in a fortnight), and the Face Of Australia High Definition Brow Kit.
The combination of the tinted brow wax and brow powder (I use the darker one), gives me fairly long lasting groomed and filled brows even through sweating. Impressive for a drugstore product, and for something at such a good price point it is a gem.
I love how it comes with a decent quality eyebrow brush, and tweezers. Perfect to throw in your makeup bag when you’re travelling.
The only thing I can fault the brow kit on is that the colour ranges limits it to use for those with light to medium dark brow/hair colour. With my current hair colour it’s ever so slightly on the light side, and I would imagine that those with black hair and very dark brows might find this a little bit light.
