I spotted this Australis palette during the last Priceline sale, and decided to pick it up as the shades look really wearable. The first thing I noticed is that the packaging is exact to MAC Cosmetics palettes - Australis really seem to have been aiming for more affordable versions of many high products in the last few years.

There are fifteen eyeshadows in the palette, leaning towards the cooler side with a variety of colours and finishes including matte, foiled, shimmer and glitter. I love that they have included basic neutral shades along with a few muted pops of colour for a really nice mix of looks to create.
I was quite surprised with how well they wore overall - I normally steer clear of drugstore eyeshadows as I find the pigmentation and use just doesn't really compare. I found these eyeshadows quite easy to blend, and although there was a little fading throughout the day when I didn't use any sort of eye base or primer, at the end of the day it still looked really good.
The Austalis Fake Eye-D palette retails for $24.95 For more information, please visit https://www.australiscosmetics.com.au/
