Australis Velourlips Matte Lip Creams v2

AUS1

Just over a year ago, Australis released five gorgeous shades of their new Velourlips. Obviously there was a huge success with them, as now Australis has released five more shades. The original five were fairly bright and vibrant, however this time the colours have been softened to a nice hue of wearable pinks.

As I was so excited by the original release, it was pretty obvious that I was going to rush out and buy all five shades at once. It's taken my a while to collect all five as they were sold out in many stores, but I've finally gotten my hands on them.

Mil-A-No, Hon-O-Loo-Loo, Ho-Chi-Min, Lun-Dun, Mi-A-Mee

Unfortunately, the names have not been improved whatsoever since their original release. This can be easily forgiven though given the fact that these lip creams are just gorgeous. This matte finish lip creams go on fairly smoothly and dry very quickly, so don't take your time in applying these.

While these are a little bit drying, I don't find them too bad personally. I've also taken to finishing them off with a clear lip gloss to keep the colour but add a gloss, which has a very nice result and leaves your lips feeling a bit more moisturised.

Mil-A-No, Hon-O-Loo-Loo, Ho-Chi-Min, Lun-Dun, Mi-A-Mee

As you can see, the colours are far more neutral and wearable than the original shades that were released. I personally love Hon-O-Loo-Loo and Ho-Chi-Min, while Mi-A-Mee has a special place in my collection. Sadly I found Mil-A-No to be a little bit too light for my skintone, but imagine it would look stunning on someone with a darker skin tone.

I do apologise for the terrible quality of the swatches, these were done on my phone and since I'm actually sick at the moment, I didn't want to risk redoing my lip swatches for this blog post. As you can see, the much lighter colours can appear to be a little streaky so it depends on your skintone and application. Application can be a bit tricky, as I said earlier, they do dry very quickly. Moisturising before applying is a must.

Whilst I'm loving the colours more than the last set, I'm saddened to find that one of the colours just didn't work for me. In saying that, however, the Australis Velourlips are an excellent drugstore alternative to those higher end brands and are far easier (and cheaper) than their luxe counterparts. Make sure to try these out in the store first and see how they match with your skintone, as these babies certainly aren't for everyone.

Have you tried the Australis Velourlips yet? If so, what are your thoughts? Are you a fan?

  6. Your swatches look fine and so do the colors :-) That first one is a miss, but the others and the last one in particular look pretty!

  7. I'm glad to see a more 'wearable' selection from this range at affordable prices. I personally don't like the feel of them on my lips.

  14. I didn't love the first release either - the colours were too bright and drying on me. But these shades are way more subtle, so I might give a few of them another try!
