Australis AC ON TOUR palette + Swatches

Hey guys!

So I finally got my hands on the Australis AC on tour palette. This palette is $16.95 from price line or Big W and is a supposed dupe to the Anatasia Beverly Hills palette.

The palette contains 6 powder shades for contouring and highlighting.

The top row contains:
- a matte skin coloured powder with a slight pink undertone. 
- a matte yellow powder
- a shimmery champagne highlighter 

The bottom row of the palette contains:
- a neutralish matte brown shadow
- a cool toned matte brown shadow
- a warm red toned matte brown shadow
A guide on the back for the placement of the powders.
All of the powders are really pigmented and glide onto the skin really easily. With a tiny bit on your brush they blend out lots and nicely buff into the skin. 

To use this palette i would firstly 
- set my foundation using the matte skin coloured powder top left in the palette. 

- I would then go in with the matte yellow powder mixed with the skin coloured powder to set my concealer along with brightening up my under eyes. 

- I would then use the highlighter shade top right in the palette, on the top of my cheekbones and if i felt like it on my nose, chin and forehead. This shade also looks beautiful all of the eyelid, inner corner and as a brow bone highlight- a very versatile shade!

- The bottom middle shade is a very cool toned brown perfect for pale people to contour with. I would take this shade and contour underneath my cheekbones with it.  This is also a great shade to put in your crease to add some demension to your eyes! 

- To finish the look i would mix the last two brown powders together to create a warmish brown and sweep that over my contour and up onto my forehead to slightly warm and bronze up the face. 

A comparison of the palette to the Australis fresh and flawless powder to show size! 
I really like this palette from my first impressions! For just $16.95 i can't see you going wrong in picking this up. I love how its nice and compacted in the palette which makes it perfect for travelling. I also love how it can be used for multipurpose on the face or a really nice eye look! I can definailty see this becoming a staple in my collection!
