Magic in a Bottle

I purchased these drops a few months ago as, as a darker skinned woman I quite often find that my the perfect match for my skin tone is 'in between' shade ranges available. However, when I got home, the sight of the twink like formula was enough for me to store this away in my drawer and promptly forget about it. However, a few days ago, whilst having a foundation color crisis I remembered about this little bottle and decided to put all preconceived judgments aside. I'm so glad i did!!! This stuff is awesome! I was able to get my 'perfect' color match by just adding one tiny drop to my foundation. It did not effect the texture of my foundation, in fact I am convinced it makes it feel more silky on my skin while also providing a little extra coverage without that heavy feeling. I am so excited about this product, I have a feeling it is going to become one of my holy grail's and I will definitely be recommending it to people.

Tips: Ditch the foundation brush and use your fingers to mix this product with your foundation. I find it mixes more evenly and in half the time.

Australis foundation lightening drops

This is genius!! $22 a bottle of 18ml. Thick in consistency. For the 100th time I have been matched to the wrong colored foundation. I have thrown out so many foundations over the years. I went and done it again, I purchased Revlon Color stay and the shade was way too dark. These drops are really amazing, I had to buy it after watching good youtube reviews. Now I have my close to perfect color match. The drops don't come out easy though and gets quite messy around the lid and sides.

Tips: Watch youtube tutorials to help you decide.

Magic in a Bottle!

I started using the Australis Match Maker Shade Adjusting Drops in Lightening after buying the Body Shop equivalent for several months. The Australis one works just as well and is much more affordable! It lightens your foundation without any impact on the formula (at least with the ones I tried), and is generally a bit of a magic wand for gals with pale complexions like me!

To use this product I would take my normal amount of foundation on a brush, then add a lil bit of the Lightening drops. One drop lightened my foundation by about half a shade to a shade. If I was wanting a full on Snow White look I'd add quite a bit, about a third of the amount of foundation I was using. Then I would just apply the brush straight to my face, swirling the products together on my actual skin. This technique worked really well, and resulted in a smooth, even, lightened makeup look. However you can also mix your foundation with the drops on the back of your hand super easily too.

My only critique of this product is that the drops don't come out super easily from the dropper. It can be quite hard to get the exact amount you need, since the consistency of the product is quite thick. However it's not that hard to develop a technique for getting the right amount out.
