Today i am going to review the awesome Australis Velourlips Matte Lip Creams that i got from Melbourne. And girls, don't worry! Australis cosmetics does ship worldwide in their official website. So my Malaysian beauties can still purchase these matte lip creams too! :) I went to Melbourne last month and i bought a few makeup products that i can't find in stores here in Malaysia. But as i mentioned just now, you can actually buy it on their website.
Matte liquid lipsticks are the rage nowadays. I'm sure you girls have seen tonnes of them in Sephora, Stilla, Covo and many more. So me being the makeup lover that i am, i kinda wanna try them and find out the best formula of liquid lipstick out there. So when i saw this at Priceline pharmacy, i knew i had to get it. I picked up 3 shades - Hon-O-Loo-Loo, Buda-Pash and Shang-Hi. Hon-O-Loo-Loo is a super nude peachy shade (almost too light for me). Shang-Hi is definitely my favourite one. It's a bright fuschia colour which at first i thought was a dupe for MAC Flat Out Fabulous. But it's not. MAC Flat Out Fabulous is a lil more purple. Buda-Pash is a super vampy dark maroon-brown shade which looks almost black. It is the darkest lipstick that i own.
These Australis Velourlips were retailed at AUD 9.95 each. It comes with 10ml of product. That is a good amount considering how the Stila Liquid Lipstick only comes with only 3ml. So it's worth the money. It has a grape juice scent in my opinion so i like the scent. It doesn't linger on your lips for too long though. So for those of you that hate scented products, this wouldn't bother you. Each tube comes with a nice sized doe-foot applicator which distributes that products nicely. The consistency of the matte lip cream is definitely on the thicker side. And also it dries to a matte finish super fast. This makes it kinda difficult to apply a second layer to your lips.
However, even though the Australis Velourlips dries to a very matte finish, it is not lng lasting. It only lasts around 3 hours before it starts to flake off your lips. Espeically if you eat something. Even if the food isn't oily. Like i ate ice cream with this lipstick on and it started flaking from the center of my lips. And that is not a nice look. Especially if you are wearing a dark coloured lipstick because it will contrast so much with your natural lip colour. So yeah. You might need to reapply this product like 2 to 3 times a days when you're wearing it. I won't lie, i find reapplying a liquid lipstick to be such a hassle.
Below are the swatches of these Australis Velourlips Matte Lip Creams on my lips.
I give these Australis Velourlips Matte Lip creams a rating of 6/10. Just because i wish they didn't flake off my lips so fast. I mean, who likes flaky lips? A liquid lipstick is supposed to last a long time. However they have a lot of awesome shades to choose from. So that is a plus point. Anyways, you can access their official website by clicking here.
