Australis Totes Smokin' Eyeshadow Palette

I read about this palette on Mishelle's Sleepy Time and I was dying to get it. I've spent the last 2 weeks hunting this down at my local Priceline and Target but it was never in stock. I finally found it today when I was driving around Sydney checking out houses (anyone want a housemate?! I'm trying to move out!) at the Burwood Target store (there's still about 20-25 on the shelves if you live nearby!).

I'm not a big eyeshadow person but it's nice to have some eyeshadow handy.

Totes Smokin' Palette

Palette with mirror and brush

I didn't think through the swatches properly so they've been swatched in the opposite order.


Top row swatches

Bottom row swatches

These can be applied both dry and wet. I recommend applying them wet though to get a really nice colour payoff. My photos look a bit washed out but the eyeshadows are actually really pigmented. They're also really soft and easy to work with.

Check out Mishelle's Sleepy Time for some amazing swatches of this palette. She did a comparison of wet and dry swatches. I tried my best but I couldn't get photos as good as hers so if you're interested, follow through on the link and check her blog out!

I picked this up for $10. I'm not sure if it's limited edition or not but it's worth picking up if you can find it!

  1. Ahhh I went into my local target yesterday and bought this for $5!! I couldn't believe my eyes. I also bought the Australis Nudist palette for $4! These shadows are pretty decent for the price :) x
