New bright lipstick find: Australis velour lips

“‎Lipstick is really magical. It holds more than a waxy bit of color - it holds the promise of a brilliant smile,
 a brilliant day, both literally and figuratively.” 
― Roberta Gately

Though makeup tends to come under the category of beauty not fashion, in our heads they overlap, and are 
all part of style and creation of the overall outfit. Lipstick in particular is that one beauty product that can
 transform a look and change the entire vibe. It can elevate it to glam, cool, or fun and that's the basis behind 
our love for bright lipstick!

When Ellen's November issue of Girlfriend magazine arrived in the post with a tube of Australis Velour Lips 
attached we were interested and immediately gave it a try. It was like a more fluid version of my MAC 
prolongwear 'dear diary' (so very bright and matte). We were in love and looking up what other colours were
 available. Unfortunately we still haven't been able to find them in NZ stores yet, so I bought two more GF 
magazines just to get the orange and purple for myself haha!
The orange wasn't as intense as the other two (with a slightly more pastel tone vs my MAC 'neon orange'), 
while the purple is very intense, as in Batman cartoon villain intense (which I kinda love about it). 
We've found the best way to apply them is with two thin coats (letting the first dry between) and then they
 last almost all day through drinking, eating, and wind attacks!
Australis velour lips matte lip cream in:
pink - 'MA-LI-BU'
orange - 'RIO-D'
purple - ' TOK-I-O'

We are curious as to when these will be released here (the excitement may have disappeared by the time 
they are). It seems kind of strange that there would be freebies with the magazine but still no signs of them a 
month later. For now we will just enjoy the colours we did mange to get, and recommend you try them out if you 
spot them in store!

  13. I am definitely obsessed with these colors especially the last one. I am a big fan of bold lipsticks, all I wear is pink, but seeing the last one has changed my mind. You guys look beautiful.

  14. I really like the second orange-y color. I prefer my lipsticks to be as matte as possible, and these shades look so smooth and vibrant.
