Swatches & my experience using them

Packaging : Nt wt : 10 ml – Nothing peculiar about the packaging – comes with a doe foot applicator –

Texture : Texture is quite thick when you initially take it , Don’t wonder if you also happen to find some chunks of the product in the applicator. Initially, I thought, the product is dried up. But, that’s how it looks. Once you actually start applying them onto the lips it’s not a problem. it applies smoothly on moisturised lips. Once applied the product dries to a matte finish and is very very long lasting. Having said that its long lasting; be sure that you properly prep your lips before application. exfoliation is a must when applying matte lip formulas. else it makes you lip color look streaky, uneven and extremely dry.

Pigmentation:  These are highly pigmented. you just need one swipe to cover even the pigmented lips. Make sure you nicely line your lips before applying. Because, application can be a little bit messy. draw the lip shape you want and its better to fill the lips using the applicator. I personally use lip applicators that I purchased from ebay. you get 100 pcs pack. and you can throw off after each application. It ensures your product is clean.

Longevity:  Its really long lasting. I prepped my lips before application and even without any lip primer or lipstick sealer, it stayed for 7-8 hours and survived a full meal. After 8 hours or so, these leave a stain on your lips. you need a proper waterproof makeup remover ( I sue mac cleanse off oil to remove this off my lips) . .  that’s pretty impressive. I recommend this for special occasions. Usually for office wear, I prefer balmy formulas.



Shade BAR-THA-LONA is a really nice cherry red shade that suits all skintones.

Shade SHANG_HII is a dark orchid shade. purple/berry for pigmented lips.

Shade NY-CEE is the perfect snow white red shade

Shade DOO-BAI is the perect wine shade. my favorite of all.

These matte cream formulas from Australis Cosmetics is taking the lip stains to a new level.  checkout the swatches below with flash and also without flash & in natural day light.








Overall, these matte lip creamy, lasts all day and finishes with a soft suede look. These doesn’t stain tea cups or transfer on your lips so you don’t have to worry about caking and flaking. One tip for perfect application is exfoliate your lips prior to using this. The shade range is so amazing- from lighter shades to darkest shades; everyone can find their favorites and these are so affordable. The formula, the finish, the staying power, pigmentation,  the application everything is just awesome! I am getting PAR-EE, BUDA-PASH for myself soon from this collection
