Face of Australia Mineral Lip Shine and FOTD

Hi ladies! How have you all been? I've been so busy with work and stuff so hence the lack of posts. I've been on a real makeup kick lately so I haven't been doing very fancy NOTDs. Don't worry though, nail art will return shortly! I've also been having lots of fun playing with lots of new (to me) Face of Australia products which were kindly sent to me for review. One of these products is the gorgeous Mineral Lip Shine in Fairy Floss.

Face of Australia Mineral Lip Shine

What they say:

"Face of Australia 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

Fairy Floss is a very pretty pink lipstick that feels more like a balm. They describe it as "the perfect go-between natural lip colour - not sticky or shiny like a lip gloss and not as heavy as a lipstick." It's somewhat sheer giving a nice pinky sheen to your lips, fantastic for when you need a neutral/pinky lip colour. It's super moisturising and feels lovely on! The smell is OK - it's a little sweet but it's not too offending.


It's packaged very sleekly in silver and there's a plastic protective cap included which is something I haven't seen before. Is this to prevent the lippie from drying out or something? I'm more of a lipgloss girl so if anyone could enlighten me that would be great! The Mineral Lip Shines are infused with natural mineral pigments for shine and contain antioxidant vitamins to keep lips soft and hydrated. It also contains natural sun protection filters which is a must for us here in Australia!


A quick FOTD for you using some of the Face of Australia products I'm been trying out:

Face of Australia Mineral Lip Shine in Fairy Floss

I am loving the combination of Face of Australia Mineral Therapy Liquid Foundation and Translucent Loose Powder and I've been using it over the last week. It makes my skin look and feel fantastic even though it's far from great. Full review coming up soon! I have so many polishes and products to review but so little time x( I kinda regret taking up that 2nd job.. but the experience will be good for me I think.

Would I repurchase?: I love pink lippies so it's a definite yes! The colour is fantastic and I love that it feels great and is so moisturising.

Face of Australia Mineral Lip Shine can be purchased from Priceline, Kmart, Big W and selected pharmacies Australia wide for $12.95. It is available in 7 different shades.

A big thank you to Face of Australia for sending me the above product to sample! I was sent the above product for my consideration but this in no way influenced my review in any way. As always, my reviews are my 100% honest opinion.

Thanks for looking!


  1. Ooh! I have that too! I don't know what the cover cap is for either, but I do think it's a great idea.. protective cap for lippies! I've had some lippies rolling around in my bag, turned itself and went smoosh on their lid. This will stop it from doing that.

  2. Odd thing to comment on, but the packaging for this lipstick is gorgeous! I love the idea of lipstick that isn't too "heavy" as well, since thats my main problem with lipstick.
    Looks lovely on you!

  3. this lipstick is pretty neutral <3 love!
    can't wait for ur reviews on porefessional and bella bamba, bella bamba didn't work on me lol
