SAX Pro Tips – Winter 2014

The SAX Winter 2014 key looks oscillate between bright, colourful and fun to a darker, more mysterious and ominous undertone.

Our four looks for this season are Edgy Beauty, Retro Beauty, Rock Chic Beauty and Street Style Beauty.

Looks are striking, sophisticated, mysterious and feminine using deep, rich colours whilst on the flip side is a doll-like porcelain complexion with a pop of purples, berry and lilac.

Guest Blogger – Jenny Ma reviews our newest eye palette!

Hi Beauties! Welcome to our latest glowing review by the fabulous Jenny Ma. All eyes are on our newest eye palette – Naked Eyes!

It’s Eye Shadow made easy!

SAX’s Naked Eyes Palette, $14.95 is SAX’s new kid on the block. Who needs to rummage through tons of odd coloured eye shadows when you have this nifty palette! This is a fantastic collection of 12 soft, buttery smooth and pigmented neutral eye shadows, with a fresh pop of blue also included.

These shadows are super easy to work with minimal fallout, though I did find that it was easier to use your own brushes – simply because I don’t like to make the colours muddy. The palette also closes with a secure magnetic mechanism. If you’re after browns and beiges, you’ll literally be spoilt for choice. The neutral hues are perfect for a graduated, contoured eye and the intense black or blue shades are perfect for nighttime glamour. In the first look, I used the shimmering creams, golds and chocolate for a natural, work-appropriate look.

For my dramatic smoky eye, I used the taupe and brow as the base, before blending the black shadow around the whole lash line. Voila – it’s eye shadow made easy!

Jenny reviews SAX Rich Lip Colour Lipstick in Classic Red

Hi Everyone,

We are very happy to welcome back the gorgeous Jenny Ma to guest blog for SAX once agaian. This time it’s all about treating your pout & her new obsession – SAX Rich Lip Colour Lipstick in Classic Red.

Read on to see what Jenny thinks!

Smitten by a Classic!

Everyone needs a great red lipstick. Move over all the nudes, there isn’t a better way to brighten up a dreary winter outfit with a lick of red on your kissers.

Now the SAX team know my uncanny obsession with red. I’ve been testing out SAX’s Rich Lip Colour Lipstick in Classic Red, and boy am I smitten.

The name dutifully implies the perfect shade of red – not too orange, not too brown and, dare I say, the neutral fire-engine red that complements all skin tones. Now, I have quite a yellow based, sallow skin tone, yet this lipstick immediately brightens up my complexion. Please see the evidence in pictures below.

Love love! I’ve also included a photo with my chompers showing. This gorgeous shade of red actually makes my teeth look brighter and whiter. Double win! Yes, it pretty much means that you can stop brushing your teeth and just buy SAX’s Classic Red lipstick instead ;). At this rate, we’ll be watching Colgate go into voluntary administration.

I love the smooth, moisturising texture of the lipstick and the high pigmentation screams ‘luxe for less’. And the packaging, oh I nearly died. The classic black square case (no more rolling off the counter) reveals the lipstick with a gentle push on the bottom of the cap. With one click, lipstick slides out… innovative, much? It’s classically elegant packaging for a classic red lipstick.

And did I mention the price? Just $14.95 at selected pharmacies. My favourite haunt for SAX Cosmetics is Terry White Pharmacy.  Yes, I’m certain you can snag yourself this baby with the loose change floating in the bottom your handbag.
