Rave: Australis High Lights Mineral Face Highlighter in "Pearl"

Saturday, 10 November 2012



I adore highlighter! I'm normally a fan of a powder one, because lets face it, it's much quicker than a liquid. I also don't have to remember to apply it before a powder.

But when I do use a liquid one, it has to be a shimmer... NOT glitter. While glitter has it's place in beauty (namely on my nails) I find it hard to pull off for a natural daytime look.


Australis has recently released a highlighter that is AMAZING!!! Not only is it glitter free, it's so easy to use, even on those mornings that you're rushed for time.

It comes in 2 different colours, "Pearl" which is a pale, pinky highlighter perfect for us fair girls. Otherwise "Gold" is the colour for you non Casper looking girls i.e warm toned!

While I can't tell you much about "Gold," as I don't own it, I did buy "Pearl" and will blabber on about it now...


The first photo was taken inside. As you can see the top swatch is very light (you may even need to enlarge it to see). This is the reason why I love it so much. Unlike other highlighters that turn you into a disco ball, this one can be applied lightly to give you a subtle glow on those days where your inner "sun" isn't shining.

Further down my arm is a heavier swatch, which is much easier to notice.


The exact same swatch, just taken outside, is more tense. The swatch at my wrist shows up much more than it did inside. Still, it's a beautiful glow ( and without any glitter!)

I really adore this highlighter and find it lasts from day to night without making my skin greasy.

It contains vitamin E, which I love as it's nice to get a hit of antioxidants from your make up.


I love the packaging. It's really light and the pump makes it so easy to apply.

You can buy directly from Australis on their online store for $14.95, otherwise Priceline, Big W, Target and Kmart stock Australis.

What's your favourite highlighter?

  1. Australis really does have some great products at a great price!

    I have to say I do love my new Dior Amber Diamonds - worth the price and I feel special wearing it!

    1. Ohhh I would love to get the Dior, but it's so pricey. Maybe I'll ask Santa for it :)

  2. I totally agree with you on the whole shimmer not glitter front! I really like girl meets pearl by benefit, but I just ordered a new powder one from the Lancome Holiday Collection that I think might top it :D

    1. I have a sample size of the GMP, but haven't used it yet. I adore the Lancome packaging. I really want to get their highlighter, but have to finish one before getting a new one. I already have too many highlighters, especially since i only have 1 face :)

  3. I have this one as well and love it! Annoyingly for me, the pump just will not work! Gah! But otherwise I'm happy with it! To be honest, I don't often highlight but this does such a good job, I may have to do it more often!

    1. I had issues with the pump too. Took me about 10 minutes to fix, but I finally got there.

  4. I also like Benefit's Girl Meets Pearl. I only have a deluxe sample of it, so I may have to check this out when it runs out!

  5. Ugh, I hate highlighters which are full on glitters! That's what made me dislike the Rimmel Wake Me Up highlighters which is a shame since everything else about them is great!

    1. Yeah, I like the Rimmel ones, but find them too glittery for a day look. Great for the festive season though!

  6. You are so right, shimmer is SO much better than glitter.

  10. Just bought it today, I hope I like it! It sounds really good.
    I love Australis eye liners so I thought I should give their highlighter a go too!
    Do you recommend their foundations and powders?
