As I’ve mentioned here in the past, I’m very fond of the Australis Velourlips so I thought that I’d better talk about what I think of the new shades that they brought out this month!
I picked up all the shades but one (LOS ANGEL-ES), I missed it because I really didn’t think that I’d suit the colour. The other colours were all very exciting to me. I know I’ve been talking a lot about having a matte black liquid lipstick at Priceline and now Australis have given us what we have been wanting!
The picture above that I got from Australis’ Instagram shows the middle colour as a red but that colour is definitely a blood orange type of colour as opposed to a red. Anyway, here are my photos of four of the new shades.
T to P: MEL-BURN, MUM-BAI, SAN-FRAN-DISCO, BAE-JING
I was so excited that they had finally made a black lipstick that I’d probably gotten my hopes up too high. The pigmentation of MEL-BURN isn’t the best but I guess you could layer it a little bit as I did in this swatch. There’s also a black shade in their Colour Inject range so if you’re after a ‘drugstore’ black lipstick, I’d recommend giving that a go if you aren’t a fan of the Velourlips formula.
MUM-BAI looks a lot like the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania, which I always wanted but I wasn’t the biggest fan of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams formula since trying other liquid lipsticks. The colour is really gorgeous and I’m very excited to wear it after Liptember!
SAN-FRAN-DISCO is a gorgeous orange (I’m as surprised as you that I think an orange is gorgeous). I wore it the other day and I loved how it looked. It was so Halloween appropriate and Liptember appropriate haha.
BAE-JING is the most perfect lip colour in the whole world. As soon as I swatched it I was like, MINEMINEMINE.
LOS-ANGEL-ES is similar colour to LUN-DUN but it is more of a light pink and it is definitely more neon. I can’t pull off neon colours at all but I think that those who have more of a tan would suit the colour much better than I would.
The formula doesn’t seem to be any different to the older lip colours, which might be upsetting to some but I can basically wear concrete on my lips so I love them. As some might have noticed, the Velourlips have gone up in price by 50c which is a little upsetting but it is still a very affordable price. I would definitely recommend trying out these shades in store if you have the chance.
I hope that you’re all enjoying your day!
