Lovin' it!

"I bought an Ali Hamylton lipstick (Joyce) in a chemist shop in Perth in January '08 and have been ordering it ever since. I just can't find one like it in any other range! It's nice on its own and great overtop of any other colour. I've also tried a few other lipsticks in the range and love using them :-)"

Thanks"

"I have used Ali for approx 5 years.  I use it b/c the coverage is perfect to my skin tone and will last all day long.  It is not oily and does not show 'powder residue' like other powder foundations.  I always recommend it, but due to lack of suppliers in the ACT, it is 'too hard' for others to continue to use/buy.  My product that I CAN NOT and WILL NOT live without is Burdekin powder foundation...and my concealer...and my blush :o)"

It is a staple in my makeup bag. I love when wearing it people comment on how good my skin looks. Now that's a product every girl needs."

"I love the dual foundation. I apply it wet with a sponge and it has a great finish. It does not react with my skin which is very sensitive. It covers great but looks natural if you use the correct shade. I've used it on and off for 10 years but keep coming back to it. The only reason I buy anything else is because there not many stockyard around."

"I've been using your makeup for aprrox 3 yrs, as I've aged my skin has gone blotchy & I depend heavily on your concealer, it is the best out of all the products that I've tried."
Carol C...8th Sept '11

*****

"I had a free makeover using these products in 2001 and have never looked back. I don't wear a lot of makeup. I do my eyes - foundation- thats it. The liquid liner is divine and the ESK dual foundation is all I need. I rarely need to use a concealer or liquid foundation.  ESK lasts all day. I really appreciate the quality of the product. Nothing on the market comes close to feeling so light and natural, all the other mineral makeup versions feel a little funny on my skin, But not Ali Hamylton.  Everything  of yours that I use smells good (natural) and gives no irritation. I will be devistated if it ever gets discontinued. love it!"

I loved my makeover so much that I bought a whole range of Ali Hamylton products..foundation, concealer, bronzer, eyeliner, shimmer eye shadows, the works!! I have never done that before, so I must have been impressed!
I am an Ali Hamylton convert for sure, and highly recommend the products to friends :)"

"I have used the dual foundation for many years. About 10 I reckon! It is the most amazing product, no other compares to it as it gives the best coverage! I also use the concealer, blush and eye shadow and have quite a few shimmers too. But the dual foundation in Esk is unbeatable. Love it!

I have  never used anything as good as this foundation & have introduced it to lots of my family.  Only hassle I have is my local chemist no longer stock it & I have to travel an hour to purchase or buy online which makes it hard when your running short and havn't ordered any in advance...keep up the great products not sure what I'd do if I couldn't get them anymore!!  Deirdre x"

"I've used these cosmetics since my friend who was a beautician introduced me to them in 2000. I don't wear a lot of makeup, however the Bulla eyeshadow used with your brow brush is pretty much a daily occurrence since I first started using it. I use the shadow as an eyeliner and it is the best eyeliner I have ever used. I often have comments on my eyeliner and always say the brand I use. I hope that this product will always be available as I don't know what I'd do otherwise as I have never found anything that compares to your product :-)"

"I have been using the foundation for a few years now, it was recommended to me by a sales assistant in the chemist where I shop. Only recently have I started using the other products. I have recommended the product to family and friends who also use the products all the time now. My favourite would have to be the foundation. I don't wear a lot of make up and sometimes just apply the foundation. I usually don't like the feel of powders on my skin but I don't even know I have this on, it just feels so light and is easily applied. The other product I really like is the lip balm, I apply it all the time. Thanks Diana"

"I don't often buy makeup. I've used my current stores right down to the bare bones and I knew I couldn't put off buying some any longer. My skin is very fair and tempermental and it's very difficult for me to find easy to apply makeup that looked good and stayed looking good. I stayed at a friends place and borrowed her Ali Hamylton Makeup Book and I fell in love with the foundation, I looked awesome when we went out and when I got home it looked just as good! So now I want some of my very own! Thanks Ali!"

"So far I have only used the Burdekin Dual Foundation. It is a fantastic product, & as I needed a refill I decided to try more of the Ali Hamylton range."
Colleen F... 2nd December '10

*****

"I have used the Saxby dual foundation since about 2001, and find it ideal because of the correct skin shade for my skin, and because it conceals imperfections without clogging my pores or being difficult to use.  It is also long lasting, my skin feels natural with it on, not heavy or sticky.  If my skin is oily it lasts even better, if my skin is dry I can use a suitable moisturiser.  I like it because I don't want to be caked in foundation - I don't want to look perfect and flawless, but rather just to feel confident that I look ok.

I have rarely tried to find a better alternative, even though I was living in the UK between 2002 and 2009, since most powders and foundations are either to white, or too pink, or too heavy, and bronzing powders seem to highlight pores and imperfections."

Charmaine S... 26th November '10

"When I was training to be a beuty therapist I started using your products.  I love the colours, the foundations and I guess the main thing is I understand the product so i know how to use it.  I would love to have more traing with some of your new products.  I have used your products for 6 years and I have recomended others.  Its funny some times i try other foundations and so on but I always come back to Ali.  My favourite product is Shirl lipstick.  I would like to be able to purchase the two tone eyeshawdows you supply in the book, individually. Thanks Mel"

"Love love LOVE this foundation!!!! I used to wear Ali Hamilton Dual Foundation years ago, it was stocked at my local chemist, a total lifesaver and the only foundation that would cover my blemishes, stay on all day and reduce redness. I was absolutely devistated when the chemist told me, to my dismay, they were no longer stocking it as the product had been discontinued. Nothing I have tried since has come even close to Ali Hamilton. I recently tried googling Ali Hamilton just on the off chance my much loved foundation may have come into existence once again, and to my disbelief I found this website!  I have just placed an order for my favourite "Saxby" foundation and am very much looking forward to recieving it in the post. Very happy to be able to purchase this product once again. Thanks guys, Love your stuff!"

It has awsome coverage without feeling heavy and is a perfect match for my skin colour :) so have been using it ever since!! There was only one place in WA that I could get it and when they stopped stocking it I had no choice but to brave the internet order system and was plesantly surprised at how easy and customer friendly it was!!

"As a natural redhead, it's been virtually IMPOSSIBLE for me to find a foundation light enough for my skin that doesn't end up making my face go brown against my pale pinky complexion. Ali Hamilton's make-up has made me finally find the shades perfect against my complexion, and no signs of brown-ness after a day at work! You've solved a huge issue for me, and I'm incredibly thankful to finally find something light enough and natural against my skintone! Thankyou so much Ali Hamilton Makeup!"

"The part-time manager of a pharmacy in Bondi Junction, who had significant experience with many cosmetics brands, made me up one day with your cosmetics. I got exactly what I'd been after for years but didn't know how to get - a natural look that was flattering and didn't take more than 10 minutes to put together. I had lots of compliments and friends and family asking me what I'd done. I've never hestiated to recommend Ali Hamylton to them and my mum actually had Kylie show her how to do her make up too. It's helped me to look more professional and I'm sure didn't hurt my chances with the lads back when I was single :) thanks, Lou"

I had to leave this testimonial as it is because I loved it soooo much! 

"Sorry, Kyile, I don't know where to put my appriciation words about using your product for more than 6 years.
It is a creamy white base eyeshadow Eliza which let my makup stay in perfect condition from early morning till night. I'm 61 yrs of age and I noticed that my skin on eye lid didn't get affected by using non stop this cosmetic.
In a meantime i tried other ideas, but it was only a wast of money. Sorry for my english, but words come strait from my heart.
If you wish to edit please do and please attach my feelings on the "opinion wall" for others.
I wish you all the best on your further carrier, as I bless your Mum Ali!!!!

"I have used Ali Hamylton products for about 3 years now. The products are far more superior than normal cosmetics and I get many many comments asking... "what product do you use?". Simply stunning products for all ages, I have a daughter heading off to highschool and she does look very pretty with the products on for the Holy Communion & Graduation Days... Would not use any other product, so happy to find ALI and I have been doing  Makeup for 30 years!"

"Ali Hamylton products are worth taking the time out to let people know how wonderful they are. My fav product is the Burdekin dual foundation, I have never found a makeup that goes on so easy and doesn't even look like you're wearing makeup, and best of all doesn't even feel like you have makeup on. I can't live without it. Thankyou for creating such a wonderful product."

"I used to sell Ali Hamylton products and they are fantastic. I use the Bulla eyeshadow as my eyeliner both on bottom and top lids and love it. It stays put all day and when people find out that it's a shadow, then they're shocked. It looks as good as an actual pencil liner and with results as good."

New Deluxe Mascara - Totally Gorgeous Black Mascara

Ali has a new and even more improved formula for her mascara, and it comes in gorgeous, stylish new packaging.

I think it was inspired by her hearing me recommend a waterproof mascara to someone... when she questioned me about it (and I use that term loosely) I had to tell the truth that, though her mascara was beautiful, a touch of water and there was a road map streaking down my cheeks.

Little did I know, but I think I had an impact because Ali went out and made a blinking beautiful mascara!  It is water resistant, is a brilliant, intense black, plumps up my lashes and is PH balanced so it is gentle on my eyes (no itching at all).  My lashes look thick and long all day.

And on top of all of that, it is has gorgeous new packaging.  So, the Ali Hamylton NEW Deluxe Mascara has my tick of approval!  And as a special to celebrate this new kid on the block, if you buy a New Mascara Deluxe and a Black Eye Pencil, I will give you a Brown Eye Pencil as a gift from me :)

 

$45.45 Gets you a New Mascara, awesome Black Pencil and an awsome Brown Pencil for free (that's a saving of $17.95).

Hand Bag Makeup.

What's important in a makeup product? It's different for everyone... for me it is ease of application, how it feels, how it smells (cant stand things that are too strong!), how it looks on the skin, how easily I can get it off my face!! and how well it fits into my hand bag.  So, let's talk hand bag makeup!
 

Kylie's List of Handbag Essentials

There are all manner of things that are important when choosing the right makeup for you... look, feel, smell etc, BUT one would have to agree that there are some products that are more essential than others, and really do have to go with you everywhere you go!

I thought I would let you know what is ALWAYS in my hand bag, no matter what.  There are products on the list that aren't Ali's , but since she brought out her all new deluxe mascara, that may not be the case for much longer! I have to admit I do try other brands (must still be rebelling against my mother!), but after a while I really don't see the point, I just keep coming back to Ali's great quality, functional products... reliable because they work every time.

OK, so lets assume that I have my makeup all done and I am ready to go to work, the first thing I pop into my little baggie that goes inside my hand bag is my Dual Foundation and Powder Mop Brush.  Though my make up will stay perfect all day, I never know if something might crop up that I just cannot miss after work or, more importantly, I may need to completely redo my makeup because the surf was up and I couldn't resist a lunch time dip.

So, if I am going to retouch my foundation then then next thing to go in is my Otto Creme Eyeshadow, because that is the very next thing I will retouch... a little Otto along the tops of my cheekbones looks gorgeous! 

After that is my Melrose Creme Blush. Handbag makeup really does need versatile and have more than one use, I use this over my powder blushes because I don't want to carry around a bunch of brushes, also I love the colour!  AND on top of that, I use it as an eyeshadow if I have to redo my whole makeup.  What I do is, apply Otto to the lid area and up and over the socket line.  Then I get the Melrose and only apply it to the lid area. Then I get my Brown Eye Pencil (this is also a hand bag staple!) and scribble it over the Melrose and then blend it together with my finger, then a little extra pencil (black or brown) along the outer corners and you look FAB!!

I don't keep powder eyeshadows and brushes in my bag because if I have done my eyeshadow properly it wont move, and with the Otto and Melrose in my bag already I can do a wonderful eye makeup.  All I need to take beyond these two products for my eyes is two pencils, Ali's Black and Brown Eye Pencil's.  These are soft and easy to apply, and their colour is intense so they snaz up your eye makeup really easily.

The other staples in my hand bag are my Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler... nothing opens up your eyes like curly lashes, and two mascara's, one of Ali's gorgeous New Mascara Deluxe (wait til you try this one, not only is the packaging gorgeous, it is seriously B-E-A-utiful!), and one Maybellie Define-a-lash Volume Mascara (waterproof).  I have the Maybelline because, though I don't use a waterproof mascara everyday, there are times when you have to and this one is the best I have found.

Lipsticks are a no brainer, Thora and Jazz!  These are my handbag lippies.  They live in my bag because they just seem to go with everything.  Sure, if I choose to go with a bright red lip that day I will toss it in my bag, but these two lippies live in my hand bag all the time. And last but not least one Shale and one SweetLip Pencil.

Oh, and of course there is always a tube of Suvana Paw Paw Ointment, there is nothing like it!

Ultimately, your handbag makeup should be there for you through thick and thin.  It should serve as a touch up saviour, have the ability to make you look beautiful as you drive up the highway steering with your knee, and send you off to that after work party looking HOT!


PS.  To add any or all of these to your shopping cart just click on the link below, you can add or remove what ever products you want in one easy step!  If you want to change the foundation simply let me know the colour you want and I will change it.  If there is a product on the list you don't want just cross it out... it's that easy!

The Pink/Brown Lippy Question... 

Which pinky/brown lippy is which, and what is the difference???  I can well and truly understand how this question could come up... there are a lot of pink/brown descriptions when it comes to Ali's lipsticks, so when Mandi asked this question I figured that there may be more ladies out there wondering the same thing! 

So here is a brief appraisal of all that is pinkish/brownish in the Ali Hamylton lipstick range;

KANGA - A pinky/taupe lippy with a matte satin consistency.  This lipstick is more pink than brown, but has blue tones to it so that it is a cooler pink. The Matte Satin description means that it has no shimmer, is long lasting and only has a little bit of sheen, no shine.

EVA - This is a very similar colour to Kanga, but is a satin sheen lippy.  This means that it is a more slippery, transparent lipstick, but not a gloss.  Eva has no shimmer to it (though the other satin/sheen lippies do.)

FRAZER - This lipstick has more brown than pink, though there is still a little pink to it.  It is a satin lippy and this means that it gives the colour "pay off" of a full on lipstick, but it is smooth and glossy.  These lippies are also moisturising which is an added bonus. It is important to note that Frazer has no shimmer.

JAZZ - Jazz is more pink than brown... actually it is more like a pink champagne colour.  It is a satin lippy so it has the same consistency as Frazer, but is a shimmery more than glossy.  This lipstick is the biggest seller in the Ali lipstick range, so it is brilliant!

I hope this is helpful, let me know if it helps... or if there is anything I have forgotten!

Thanks,

Cara's number 1 fan!

As you all know, after you purchase your products we ask you if you would be so kind to give us a little testimonial for our site.  Well, recently... really recently, actually yesterday Sylvia took advantage of out little lippie special and bought enough Cara to last her a year or more, and this is what she left behind...

I love Cara - the most perfect lipstick I have ever found.  It beautifully moisturises my lips as well as adding a subtle but sparkly shade of purple that is perfect for my skintone and for someone who lives in purple, blue and black, it matches whatever I'm wearing.  I keep a lippy in each of my bags so I am never caught without one.

Ha, how amazing is that?!  I don't think I could have paid someone to put it better!

If you are interested in having a look at Cara for your self then have a click on the colour swatch below...

Nanotechnology... a Kylie perspective.

How does it happen?

How does life just TAKE OVER?

One minute you feel like you are in complete control, and then you seem to blink and when you open your eyes BAM! your “to do” pile is a skyscraper.

I have not written a post since Christmas!  How did that happen?  I could give you all a run down of my life since then, but it would probably not look any different from any other working Mum’s timetable, I have just somehow fallen that far behind.

Anyway, hopefully this is a return to how I want things to be, because believe me, if I was hiring me my job would be on the line.

I recently got an “Ask Kylie” question regarding nanotechnology, and whether or not Ali Hamylton Cosmetics uses it.(ha, I say recently, but that is only because I am way too embarrassed to say when the question was actually asked, hopefully Olivia will save me the embarrassment of telling everyone… please).  Got to admit, I really didn’t know much about this when it came in, but I am more up to speed now.

So, what is nanotechnology?  According to Wikipedia it

“is the study of the controlling of matter on an atomic and molecular scale. Generally nanotechnology deals with structures of the size 100 nanometers or smaller in at least one dimension, and involves developing materials or devices within that size.” 

YIKES, let’s try and put that into terms that we all understand…

Nanotechnology is about changing any material from its original size and making it much, much smaller.  Here is a little graph that shows the dimensions of a nanometer; 

A nanoparticle compared to a soccer ball, is the same as the soccer ball compared to the earth… pretty small hey!

Getting to the bottom of whether or not this is a good or bad thing is to say the least, a HUGE challenge, as, 1) the jury is still out on the research, and 2) no one has to tell you whether or not they are using nanotechnology anyway!  But getting it right is really important as titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, two key minerals in sun damage prevention, are in question, and they are key to the health of your skin. 

I am not going to get into the argument of whether or not nanotechnology is a bad thing, as I am nowhere near qualified as an authority, but according to Paula Begoun, the cosmetics guru, there is a bit of a storm in a tea cup going on.  In her article titled “Nanotechnology” she says …

“What’s been reported about these benign sunscreen ingredients often sounds scary, with some reports going so far as to state that nanoparticles of these sunscreen actives reach the bloodstream and are potentially dangerous. Some articles about sunscreen nanoparticles have even stated these can interact with sunlight and cause cellular damage to skin. As alarming as this sounds, these assertions are not supported by any published information and they are without support from the medical world or the FDA.”

Now, given that more evidence has come to light since this article was written, evidence that sort of proves that nanoparticles do enter the blood stream.  I say ‘sort of’ because Friends of the Earth have leapt onto this band wagon with lots of scary stuff but, according to Professor Brian Gulson of Macquarie University (the man who is at the forefront of this research), “the researchers still don't know whether the skin penetration is by ions or particles, and what health effect the skin penetration has.”

And then I found another article, by cosmeticsdatabase.com that is doing a backflip on all the articles they had written previously opposing nanotechnology, now they say that the benefits of using titanium and zinc in nano-sized proportions far out weigh any negative side effects, of which there were none.

I might sound a little cynical about all of this, but it kind of gets up my nose.  I am more careful than most about what food comes into my kitchen, and what goes onto the skin of me and my family, but I know for a fact that the word ‘natural’ is bandied around by the food and cosmetics industries with very little proof.  So many things are touted as ‘natural’ but the process of getting them to that stabilised state is anything but.  The truth of the matter is you wouldn’t want them in their natural, unstabilised state as the risks involved are far higher.  I mean really, get an avocado, mush it up and leave in on the shelf for a couple of days, then see if you want to get those beneficial components from a ‘natural’ source.

Furthermore, there is no regulation over the word natural anyway.  It is one of the questions that I get asked the most, ‘is Ali Hamylton natural?’  I could just say YES, 100%, no one would or could get me in trouble, but what we say is “wherever possible, we use natural ingredients”.  There are some pigments you wouldn’t want to be natural as they are full of lead!

So, what is the answer to the question… Does Ali Hamylton use nanotechnology?  Well, according to the man that stirs the brew in his cauldron, no, there are no nanoparticles in any Ali Hamylton lipstick, foundation, concealer,  pencil, shimmer… none.  So why have I written this long, long, looooooong, explanation?  Well, that would be because I felt like it J.

I will be back on board now, and there is a post on the way that is a “how to” get that perfect Rita Hayworth look.

Take care, Kylie x

Festive Lips - New lip products from Ali Hamylton Cosmetics

Welcome to the festive season! 

This summer if your are not wearing some shade of orange on your lips you are soooo last year!

And, for those perfectly festive party lips Ali Hamylton Cosmetics has come up with two perfect new lip products that have a very fruity twist! So I decided to go with this outdoorsy, summer theme and take to the garden to showcase our new Lip Pencil and Gloss.

Poppy in my garden :)First we have Poppy, a gorgeous bright red/orange lip pencil, like a cross between a North Queensland Mango and a Ruby Red Grapefruit... sounds like a fruit salad for your lips, just think bright, eyecatching lips as you smile your way through this party season. 

As you can see from this picture of Poppy on my freckly little lips, it is a wonderful addition to the Ali Hamylton lip pencil range.  It has the usual Ali softness with it's easy to apply texture but this time it is a mango coloured marvel.
Poppy Lip Pencil  $17.95


Necta in my garden too!
Then we have Necta, a gorgeous, shimmering gloss with just a hint of mandarine orange through it, it's like an orange and mango gloss with just a hint of peach. (ha, ha, more fruit descriptions!)  But really, this gloss is beautiful, it is sparkly and super shiny, and it smells like summer to boot.

The pic of the gloss on the freckly lips doesn't seem to have picked up the sparkles... believe me it sparkles!

Necta Lip Gloss  $18.50

As a special we have put together a little Poppy/Necta combo deal, because these two products look so GORGEOUS together!  If you buy a Poppy you can get your Necta at half price!  Thats a saving of $9.25!

Ali Hamylton as usual is setting the pace with this beautiful Necta and Poppy combination.

  Necta/Poppy Combo  $27.20

I am off to Perth in a couple of weeks but I hope to have something for you to nibble on before then... either way you will hear from me again before Christmas, I mean really it has been SOOOOO long since I gave you guys a good "how to" to sink your teeth into.

Happy Christmas shopping,

There is a new link in the side bar, or you can click on the post below... at the moment we have 5 fans, but they include me, my husband, my brother, my friend Kym (who the Kym lippie is named after!) and Nikki who is another old friend, so I don't think I have anything to boast about yet.  Ha, ha, ha I guess it takes time for a makeup artist to learn how to get cyber-space action going!

So come on down and let's see if we can build a mosh pit of fans!

How Sweet it is!! Finally Ali gives us a pink lip pencil :)

How Sweet it is!  Finally Ali Hamylton Cosmetics has come up with the perfect pink lip pencil, and it is gorgeous.  As usual, it is a wonderful, soft easy to use pencil that goes on like a dream.  And the colour is perfectly pink, soft and creamy.
 

As you can see from the photo of my freckly lips it is not too lolly, not too much blue, with only a hint of taupe... just a wonderful, versatile pink.  It has the usual soft, creamy matte texture that you expect from an Ali lip pencil and it goes with any brown-beige or pink lipstick, perfect for Astrid, Lulu, Matilda, Thora, Kylie, Jazz, Kanga... need I say more?!

It is also lays a perfect base for any of the Ali Hamylton Lip glosses to give the lip just a little bit more definition... especially for Blossom which has a gorgeous new formula but more about that later :)

It definitely gets the ThatMakeup stamp of approval, we love it!

Sweet lip pencil $17.95
