Makeup and Macaroon's $100 FOTD Challenge

Thought I'd brave another simple FOTD: Makeup and Macaroon's $100 FOTD Challenge.

Here are the products:

  • Rimmel Fix & Perfect Primer - 13.95
  • Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse Foundation - 21.95
  • Face of Australia Eye Primer in Matte - 7.95
  • Australis Pocket Palette for the eyeshadows, blush & lip gloss - 12.95
  • Scandal Eyebrow Pencil - 6.95
  • Face of Australia High Definition Liquid Eyeliner in Black - 9.95 (not pictured, rolled off behind desk)
  • CoverGirl NatureLuxe Water Resistant Mascara - 18.95
Total: 92.65

Honestly, if I added up how much I actually paid for these products, it would be a lot less than $93. You see, I would have bought all of the above at discounted price in Priceline. I even received the Australis Pocket Palette for free as it was GWP last year.

I admit though using the Australis Pocket Palette felt like cheating as it was three products in one. But I have had it for a while and I've never used it, so I figured it was the perfect opportunity to break this palette in -- I am loving the lip gloss!

I had fun doing this so I might give this challenge another go with other products. In the meantime here's a couple more FOTD shots.

I've been reading up on how to take better photos, but if you have any tips for better product/FOTD photos, do share! Thanks!


  1. Yeay, thanks for doing the challenge! You look great! I bet if we lived in the US we could do it for less than $50!

  2. Hi Lilit! I had a lot of doing the challenge. Yes, would be great if we can do $50 FOTDs. Thanks for visiting my blog!

  3. nice and simple! the lip color looks nice on you.
    agree that it's so easy to add up to $100 in aud!
