Face of Australia Mineral Lip Shine Fairy Floss
The Face Of Australia Mineral Lip Shine is one of those products that's somewhere between a lipstick and a lip gloss. It reminds me of the Stila High Shine Lipsticks, without the glitter.
The colour I received (I was sent this) is Fairy Floss, a super pretty, subtle pink that would be perfect for Spring - exactly my sort of colour. It feels hydrating and smooth, and isn't highly pigmented but leaves a nice wash of colour. The lasting power isn't great, but with these sorts of lip products it never is, and that's never a selling point for me anyway.
I've been using this a fair bit lately and really enjoying it. And of course, my lovely lip model Noodles agreed to swatch it for me like the super trooper she is. (Looking at that photo I think she needs a lip scrub.)
You can buy the FOA Mineral Lip Shine at Priceline and some department stores for about $13, and there are 7 shades available. I'm going to check out 'Love Bite' next time I'm out shopping.
