In Australia it is no secret that makeup is expensive, very expensive. Want a foundation from a brand like Revlon or L’Oreal? You are looking at anywhere between $30 to $50 and high end brands go for up to a hundred! So when a good deal comes out full of great products for a great pass I can never pass it up. I bring you the Adore Beauty Best of the Best Samplers. If you aren’t an Aussie don’t fret and think this post isn’t relevant to you because it contains mini reviews on all the products, most of which are available globally.
Adore Beauty Best of the Best Makeup & Skincare Sampler. For $34.95 you get Benefit They’re Real! mascara 3g, Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation primer 15ml, St Tropez Skin Illuminator 30ml (full size), theBalm Hot Mama! 1g Bioderma Crealine 20ml, Lanolips Rose Balm Intense for Very Dry hands 25ml, Philosophy Purity Cleanser 30ml.
Benefit They’re Real!
My second favourite mascara (and believe me I’ve got a lot of them!) this gives you great length and great volume. I’ve been asked whether I’m wearing false lashes whilst I’m wearing this, which to me says great mascara! My only issue is that it is a little clumpy, but I can live with that as the positives far outweigh the negatives.
Napoleon Perdis Auto pilot Pre-foundation Primer
This is kind of an Aussie cult favourite. Although Napoleon Perdis is known for using private label cosmetics there is no denying that this (or the Face Of Australia Face Base Primer which contains identical ingredients) works a treat. It is one of the best moisturising and soothing primers I have tried. It almost acts like a moisturiser (if you have oily skin I would say you could just get away with this) so it makes makeup glide on extra smooth and evenly.
