NOTD: Face of Australia Luxe Nail Enamel in Foxy Roxy & makeup previews

Last week a small group of the MBBE ladies caught up with a wonderful Tina, the tweeter behind Face of Australia Cosmetics and boy were we spoilt.

Not only was the company great (that’s a given when there’s an MBBE catch up), the food was yummy (courtesy to Ghin Khao on Swanston st), Tina also brought us a bunch of new makeup goodies to play with.

We were introduced to the amazingly pigmented and smooth baked and limited edition Opulent Eyes eyeshadows (more on that in an upcoming post with swatches), Mineral Therapy mineral bronzing and illuminating facial beads (which reminds me of Geurlian’s Meteorites) and the new limited Edition Luxe nail enamels collection. 

It was makeup heaven I tell you, there are just too many products to try at one time and I don’t even know where to begin.

As always, I’m a sucker for nails so I couldn’t resist trying on the nail colours first. The one that caught my eyes most was none other than Foxy Roxy 

Luxe Nail Enamel - Foxy Roxy
  • A muted muavey, grey, mushroom taupe shade, this is a chameleon and change tones depending on the lighting it's viewed in. 
  • Pigmented, you can easily get away with one thick coat, this is a very easy to apply formula with a lot of self levelling properties which makes perfect applications easy to achieve. 
  • It was fairly quick drying and the high gloss shine just makes this even pretty. 
  • Classy enough to be worn in the office environment yet still edgy and sophisticated enough to be different, mark my words but I think this shade is going to be hot this coming Autumn/Winter. 
Foxy Roxy - more a taupey grey in natural white light

RRP A$4.95 - an absolute bargain! Face of Australia is available at Priceline, Kmart, Big W and selected pharmacies in Australia.

This product was provided for consideration.
