Australis Cosmetics Neon Crush Eyeshadow Duos

NC2

A little while ago, Australis Cosmetics introduced a new range called Neon Crush. I'll admit that I was not at all interested in the range. I do find that more releases by Australis Cosmetics seem to be aimed at younger teenagers, which is fine, but it means that I'm far less interested!

During the 40% off cosmetics sale at Priceline, I decided to have a look around. I ended up trying out one of the Neon Crush Duo's in store, and decided that yes, I indeed need to walk out with all four duos.

So, as you can see, the names are pretty annoying. From now on I'll just be referring to them as their hashtag names, as that's far easier. There are four duos in the range, including blue, purple, pink and green. I was a bit disappointed there was no inclusion of yellow, or even orange, as they would have made gorgeous neon shades! I can't complain too much though, as there was an orange included in the limited edition palette Neutrals & Neons (you can read my full review on that palette here.)

Once you look past the candy coating, you can see the amazing insides. How gorgeous do these colours actually look! If only I had paid closer attention to this release earlier so I could have worn these amazing shades throughout the whole 2 weeks of the Melbourne summer!

The blues and purples are definitely my favourite. Both duos are really strong, and could be used in day to day looks. I love the first side of the blue, as it's so shimmery and gorgeous. Both purples are ridiculously wearable and I'll get a lot of wear out of these ones!

#XOX and #OMG

The pinks are truly beautiful, and much stronger than other pinks I've tried in the past. The colours are really pigmented, I was so impressed. The greens really blew me away. Look at how amazing those greens are! So pigmented, and such gorgeous and unique colours!

-- 

In terms of application, I found all colours to be buttery soft, and they blend like a dream. The pigmentation of all colours are amazing for a drug store brand, and looking at the swatches I feel that these are comparable to pressed colours by gorgeous companies such as Sugarpill.

I'm kicking myself for not picking these up, but I'm thrilled that I now have. Considering the duos retail at only $7.95 each, I'd say these are an absolute steal!

Have you tried the Australis Cosmetics Neon Crush Eyeshadow Duos yet? If so, what did you think? Are you a fan of the neon look?

  10. Same as everyone - was put off by the packaging and the names, thinking 'I'm too old for these!" But the pinks look especially good...I love the rose-gold eye that's around at the moment. Great for green eyes.
