Australis Paparazzi Perfect High Definition Blush in 'Flash It': Swatches and Review
I recieved an Australis blush in 'Shoot to Thrill' from ABBW but I thought it was a bit too pink for me... But it applied perfectly! It had such a smooth buttery feel!
Since receiving the blush from ABBW I had slowly grown fond of their brand. I never really noticed them, and their image has changed dramatically! I remember they use to have a logo of a little sun... I think their new image suits them and their products so much better!
So when I saw Flash It at Priceline and swatched it.... I was absolutely madly in love!!!!!!
I was a bit hesitant on the pink but once the blushes are mixed together, it turns into such a beautiful shade!
I was contemplating between Flash it and Poser which were both gorgeous but settled for Flash it since it could produce so many shades of my ideal blush!
It comes in plastic snap case packaging with a mirror.
I think it's the perfect size for a blush especially since it has 4 types in it!
Isn't it pretty!! I looks like the prettiest speckled dinosaur egg!
I've decided to label the shades to make it simplier and show you which colours I mixed to achieve the following shades.
Single swatches of 1, 2, 3 and 4 in their correct order
They don't really show up on their own..
Now this is the awesome part!
All those three swatches below were made from just swirling a couple of the shades together!
Isn't that awesome?
Left: w/o flash & Right: with flash
Swatch 1: Mixing blushes 1 & 4
Swatch 2: Mixing blushes 2 & 3
Swatch 3: Mixing 1, 2 & 4
My favourite one is the third swatch! It looks coral-bronze with a slight shimmer!
I usually don't like shimmer in my blushes but I think this is gorgeous!
I'm wearing swatch 3 below:
I don't think you can see it very well :(
What they say:
What is it Perfectly blended multi-coloured blush that allows for customised shades to suit any complexion. Formulated with light reflecting and balancing photochromatic pigments that assist to create instant camera ready photos. Pigment is high in Mica content providing intense colour payoff. The blush is enriched with Jojoba and Grape seed oil to lock in skin moisture and soothe the skin.
Why we love it A smooth feel with intense colour payoff that provides an instant glow that highlights and contours cheeks. The marbled effect allows shades to be customised to suit individual complexion.
Easy to blend as it's super smooth
Might be too shimmery if you apply too much!
I love this blush! But since half the blushes have shimmer in them it is likely that you would pick up too much shimmer, so that was one thing I had to be cautious about!
Priceline, Big W and other leading retailers @ $12.95
Priceline usually has a buy 3 for 2 on Australis products so keep an eye out on those!
Would I recommend this product?
Yes! I think this blush would suit many skin tones and it's really easy to blend.
It's also awesome as you can use the lighter shades as a highlight!
Would I repurchase?
Yes! I still want Poser...
Thank you for reading and I hope this review has helped ☺!
