Australis Lip & Cheek Combo Crème Colour Review

March 16th, 2014

I like beauty products that are versatile. These days, we have many products that are made to serve many functions. But, even back in the day, I remember using a single lipstick on my eyes and cheeks too even though the texture was not quite suitable for use other than on lips. It’s nice to see many brands make products that cater to people who can’t be bothered with buying way too much makeup. And one such product is the Lip and Cheek Combo Crème Colour from Australis.

Australis is a tried and tested brand in Australia, and their Lip and Cheek Combo Crème Colour range has good colour combinations that cater to all skin tones. The product I am reviewing is ‘Dusk til Dawn’ and has two of my favourite colours – a rose pink and a coral orange.

Product specifics

The duo comes in a black tub with screw-shut clear lip. The packaging is of good quality and the lid stays intact – so can be thrown in to the travel bag. The product has a botanical smell, with stronger notes of tea. The texture is creamy.

The Beauty Mantra opinion

My initial thought when I looked at the ‘Dusk til Dawn’ combo was that the colours are ones that I would use on a daily basis. Most often, any palette (lip/cheek/eyes) has shades that we know we can never use. So, it is a good feeling when we know we can put the product to full use.

The lip and cheek combo is of a super creamy texture, and lightweight. The cream melted into the skin, and can be used on the cheeks without worrying about breakouts. The shades are quite sheer and the pigmentation is on the lighter side. And that is ideal as it allows us to have control on the colour intensity. The creams are easily buildable for a darker colour.

Although I quite liked using them on my cheeks, I prefer using them on my lips. If you are worried about dipping your fingers into them all the time, they can be used with a lip liner or a cheek brush. The product did not dry my lips, and had a supple-lip look once applied.

I found the packaging to be ideal for travel, and the versatility means you can travel with less number of products. Overall, it is a product that is a good value for money, very versatile, and ideal for travel.
