A couple of months ago I wrote a post about my new favourite lip colours from Savvy by DB. Last week I’ve discovered a range that I love just as much and that is the VelourLips by Australis. I’ve become much more interested in makeup recently partially because I’ve started following a few youtubers (that became my main hobby during winter time this year). After many year of only using very few different products, I’ve broadened my makeup collection. I still don’t experiment a lot but these new products of mine make me wonder how I ever survived without them. As a result I’m much better at makeup now and therefore more interested in it.
Australis is a brand to which I have paid very little attention in the past. However, when I was in Priceline I was drawn to the range ofVelourLips because of the vibrant shades. I often feel so frustrated that lip products come in very limited colour ranges. After researching the product subsequent to buying it, I realised that VelourLips has actually been around for quite a while so I am probably writing this post a year too late. However, I know that a number of these shades are new release so it is still relevant. In my usual style, I ended up buying six different colours. There was a buy two get one free offer on Australis products in Priceline so that helped.
These lip creams are a gloss when applied but dry to a matte finish. My preference, when it comes to lip products, is to use matte products but then add a clear lip gloss over the top. I hate using coloured since they are not very pigmented and can end up all over my face. I also hate using just matte products because of the dryness and also the look (I know this isn’t the case for everyone but I prefer the look of glossy lips). So in the pictures below I have added clear gloss in each case. The staying power of this product is amazing; it stays on well all day even after eating and drinking. They are all well pigmented but I prefer to apply two layers since I like the shades to be extra bright.
-the names seriously annoy me!
I’ve wanted an orange lip colour for quite awhile now so I thought I’d be brave and try this one. It’s actually brighter in person so I feel rather daring. I’m not used to orange so this will be one of the least wearable shades for me. If I’d known that the Mi-a-mee shade was slightly orange then I may not have chosen this one. However, I’m up for the challenge of this bright orange.
This shade is so bright that it’s almost a fluro pink. Again it may not be to everyone’s taste but it sure is to mine. I love this so much and it was the colour which initially drew me to this range. It’s also the colour I was wearing in my last outfit post with my pink tartan skirt. This is a really fun and summery shade; you can never have too much pink in your life.
Has anyone ever tried this product?
