Go The Distance With Australis Long Wear Lipsticks

You know how I love a good lipstick? Well I have 8 gorgeous lipsticks to show you today from Australis*, and at $12.95 each it costs less than lunch in Sydney.
Back row: Uber Cool, Diva, Ghetto, Glam
Front row: Easy Chic, Preppy, Boho, Trendy



According to Australis these are semi-matte lipsticks that can last up to 10 hours. I actually think these are full on matte, and yes they do last a long time. Their formula reminds me of the Illamasqua lipsticks which are also incredibly matte. A lip balm is essential before applying these lipsticks as otherwise it can drag as you apply them, and accentuate dryness. But if you love matte lips these are a must.

Anyway, enough chit chat. Let's look at the colours!

L/R: Uber Cool, Diva, Ghetto, Glam
Uber Cool - Deep mauve with purple undertones.
Diva - Bright true red. I have a FOTD coming up with this colour.
Ghetto - Deep wine with brown undertones. Looks much more wearable on lips than in the bullet.
Glam - Deep plum, perfect for autumn.


L/R: Easy Chic, Preppy, Boho, Trendy
Easy Chic - Light nude with brown undertones.
Preppy - Muted neutral pink.
Boho - Deep nude with brown undertones.
Trendy - Bright barbie pink.

All lip swatches are without lipliner. My absolute favourite is Preppy as it's such an easy to wear everyday shade, but my mum somehow stole it off me so I'll need to visit Priceline soon and get one of my own! Also I adore Uber Cool, I can see me wearing that shade a lot in the cooler months. Thank you Australis for coming up with yet more fantastic products that don't break the bank. These are available at Kmart, Priceline, Big W and selected pharmacies, or online at www.australiscosmetics.com.au

  1. Trendy, Glam and Diva are my faves. I had a look at the testers yesterday, but unfortunately they were sold out! Would've been such a bargain with 40% off at Priceline! xx

    1. Oh I went to Priceline yesterday and there was hardly anything left on the shelves! I ended up buying 1 thing only. Hmmm, hoping they'll get more stock of these as I need to buy Preppy since my mum stole it off me! xx

    1. Yes they are already out but apparently they're sold out at a lot of stockists! I'm not surprised as they are seriously good quality, I'd compare to MAC matte lipsticks even, so yes do keep and eye out for them.

  10. As soon as these were released, I visited three Pricelines, two BigW's, and two Kmarts without any luck. I'm not even sure they were stocked there, as there was no indication that they were ever there, and I still can't find them. So disappointed. Looks like I'll have to buy them blindly online, because I have to have them {yes, I'll break my lip ban for them!}. They look fabulous on your lips; thanks for switching them all, it makes it easier for me to choose now! Xx

  12. I picked up Glam when I first saw them in store, and I love it! I's just a little more brown than any other deep red I own, and the subtle plum/pink shimmer makes it a tad more fancy. Definitely in my top matte lippies. It also looks great over a brown lip liner to really bring out the richness.
