Australis Velourlips Matte Lip Cream*

VE2

Australis Cosmetics have really been hitting it out of the park recently with their new release products, and one of their newer products that I've been very excited about are the Velourlips! Velourlips are matte lip creams; go on like a lip gloss and dry matte.

VE1

NY-CEE, TOK-I-O, MAL-I-BOO, RIO-D, PAR-EE

The names aside, I love the actual product itself! The colour range is delightfully fresh for a drugstore brand, including bright pink, peach and purple, as well as a classic nude and red. Surprisingly there aren't a lot of normal and neutral colours, so here's hoping they extend their range at some point!


 

VE3

Freshly applied; NY-CEE, TOK-I-O, MAL-I-BOO, RIO-D, PAR-EE 

VE4

Wiped off with water after several minutes; NY-CEE, TOK-I-O, MAL-I-BOO, RIO-D, PAR-EE

As you can see, the staying power of the Velourlips is incredible! I found that after eating and drinking, the colour on my lips stayed fresh and bright! I've read a few reviews on the Velourlips with complaints of epic dryness and cracking, as well as wearing. Most reviews I've read have said to apply a thin layer to avoid drying and cracking, but I found better results with a thick layer - and to keep it looking nice I did reapply once throughout the day for comfort; but it was not necessary. Although in saying that, the product experience will be different for everyone!

Although yes, these can be drying, they are matte lip creams and dryness is to be expected. Make sure you prime your lips properly with a lip scrub and lip balm to avoid damage to your lips, but otherwise I didn't have a problem with the dryness.

Swatched; NY-CEE, TOK-I-O, MAL-I-BOO, RIO-D, PAR-EE
The brighter colours can get a little messy so I like to use a lip liner, particularly with the red and the purple. (I haven't in the picture above to keep the pictures true to colour.) I honestly can't decide on a favourite as they are all absolutely gorgeous, but the pink is truly stunning, where as the nude is delightfully wearable! As you can see it is cracking and wearing slightly, but I did apply a thin layer here.

These babies are truly amazing. Yes, I know that some people don't like them but they are definitely a favourite of mine. The colours, the finish, the application is all wonderful and I'm in love with all of the colours! Please, Australis, extend the range and we'll love you forever!

Have you tried the new Australis Velourlips yet? If so, what's your verdict? Do you love them as much as I do?

Some of these products were provided for consideration.

  5. oh gosh, they're all a little too bright for me.. not the nude obviously lol :) The matte look is really cool, but I'm very doubtful my lips would survive the drying, they hate normal lipsticks! x

  7. Oh my goodness, those colours are absolutely gorgeous!!! I can't even pick a favourite because I just love all the colours you picked out. :) They remind me of NYX Matte Lip Cream but much more vibrant. I hope they'll get featured here in NZ soon, I haven't seen them around for some reason. I need to stock up! :)

    Take care always, love Christine ~ xo
