Hey there my favorite peeps!
Today’s review is an exciting one because I’m going to talk about one of my favorite lipsticks! It’s a rare thing when both formula and color range a good, add a decent price and baby I’m in love.
So let’s get into the review shall we?!
Formula?: It’s hydrating yet doesn’t have a slippery feel to it. It sort of feels thick on the lips but not in an uncomfortable way. Let’s just say it doesn’t feel thin and fragile on the lips, you feel it on the lips, like the lipstick is giving your lips a nice hug. It lasts a good amount of time on your lips and certain bold shades even stains your lips. They don’t bleed or feather out easily as well so it’s possible to wear these without a lip liner but bold shades always need some kind of insurance just in case.
Longevity?: Like I said above this lipstick lasts a surprising amount of time considering its not dry on the lips. The bold shades can stain your lips a bit as well which is awesome.
Shade range?: I sort of have a wish that this brand made as many shades of this lipstick as mac does! That’s how obsessed I am! They have added more shades since I first got into them which is great. They have your nudes/pinks/purples/reds/orange so they do have the basics covered.
Color intensity: None of the shades are sheer or too subtle they all give great color pay off!
Packaging: Your standard lipstick packaging. The lids are kinda fragile, one of my lipsticks has a cracked lid and won’t close properly so be careful with that.
Application: They apply very smoothly and with ease, they’re creamy formula makes application very easy.
Finish: They’re not matte, they aren’t super glossy either. They are somewhere in the middle, they give off a pretty sheen without containing glitter or shimmer particles.
Availability: Priceline, Kmart and I think target as well. You can also purchase them of the Australis site. (international peeps can access this brand on the Australis website as they now ship internationally)
Price: $13.95 AUD
Pros: Comfortable on the lips, not drying, a decent amount of shades, affordable
Cons: They don’t have a wide range of options in regards to nude/wearable shades
Overall thoughts? In regards to the lipstick line as a whole, these lipsticks are definitely holy grail status for me. They’re so pretty and comfortable and just freaking awesome. Definitely one of my favorite lipsticks.
Would I repurchase more shades?: Yes! I need to get much more shades and also they came out with some brand new shades which I also need to get
Any particular shades I would repurchase?: I definitely need to repurchase samba and back it up.
