fairy floss

7 Apr

You know that lip product that you just keep reaching for, even when you have a dozen other lip prods in your handbag? The one that has earnt its special place in the all exclusive “go with me everywhere” makeup bag? Well I think I have found “the one”… and let’s just say, she is as sweet as she sounds!

I call her ‘Floss’ (yes I know that makes her sound old, but let me tell you she’s not) but others would know her as Face of Australia Mineral Lip Shine in Fairy Floss (RRP $12.95).

FACE OF AUSTRALIA has created the perfect go-between natural lip colour – not sticky or shiny like a lip gloss and not as heavy as a lipstick. FOA Mineral Lip Shine combines natural mineral pigments and hydrating ingredients for lasting moisture and colour. The silky formula contains no synthetic dyes and shades range from light sheers to thicker creams.

Fairy Floss is a sheer candy pink shade that gives your lips a gorgeously sheer slick of pink with a pearlescent finish. It makes your lips look full and plump. Below is fairy floss on my lips.

I love how FOA have hit the nail on the head here and created a lip product that is neither a lip gloss nor a lipstick but a beautiful in-between hybrid of both, a beautiful moisturising and non sticky lipstick/balm that keeps your lips in prime condition and can so easily be applied without looking in the mirror! WINNER!!!

Oh and check out the benefits:

FACE OF AUSTRALIA Mineral Lip Shine is infused with natural mineral pigments to deliver radiant shine and sheer colour with no synthetic dyes. FOA Mineral Lip Shine contains antioxidant vitamins and skin hydrating ingredients to keep lips soft and protected. Natural sun protection filters shield lips from everyday environmental aggressors and boosts the recovery of the skins’ natural moisture level.

I love this so much, I just reapplied it whilst writing this. I will definitely be going and purchasing a back up of Fairy Floss.

And did I mention FACE OF AUSTRALIA don’t test on animals?! AND… their prices are super cheap! AND THEY’RE AUSTRALIAN! Yeah that’s right… RUN! Don’t walk.

RRP: $12.95

      oh thanks. I actually think they look a bit ridiculous… like I’ve had an allergic reaction or something. LOL. I’m sure yours aren’t awful 😛

    I think this colour compliments your skin tone really well!

      Thanks Celeste. 🙂 I am a sucker for a light pink shade, just so easy to maintain too. This colour is quite flattering on anyone though.
