Australis Velourlips Matte Cream Review and Swatches

March 31st, 2015

All I can say is – OH MY GOD!!! These are one of my favourite lip products. This should pretty much sum up the rest of the review. But I will go into a bit more detail and explain the reasoning behind my opinion – as any good beauty blogger would do :)

Velourlips are undoubtedly Australis Cosmetics’ star product. They are liquid matte lipsticks.

Australis Cosmetics describes the product as,

Highly pigmented lips are the look of the moment, and this lip cream takes it to the next level with its beautiful matte finish! The creamy long-wear formula glides on easily with its doe foot applicator, finishing to a velvety matte look with intense, full coverage colour payoff. Perfect for when you want lasting, matte colour that moves with your lips without flaking.

Packaging wise – they come in the usual lip gloss type see through tubes. This means that one can view the product and the shade. The wand comes with the doe foot applicator and perfect for any lip shape. They smell amazing!! – A sweet and strong berry fragrance.

The texture of the product is creamy, applies smoothly and dries to a matte finish. The Velourlips are super duper pigmented and the colour pay off is top notch. One swipe is enough for a good colour pay off. However, it can be layered on for a stronger colour. The finish, although matte, is not as drying. But it really pays to exfoliate and moisturise lips before application for a smoother look as it tends to highlight any pre-existing flakes. I like the matte finish but if you find it towards the dry side, dab a small amount of balm. Applying a lip gloss on top will totally defeat the purpose of matte lips but if you are not into matte finishes – then do it by all means.

The staying power is indescribable. The product stays all day long and more if you wish to keep it on. No amount of food or drink can get to it! In fact, I find it hard to get it off with makeup remover at the end of the day. I would totally recommend this product.

 

The four shades I own are:

PA-REE – A warm nude

 BAR-THA-LONA – A cherry pink-red

 SHANG-HI – A berry purple

 BUDA-PESH – Oxblood
