Australis Blush BFF's and Velourlips Review

Sunday 13 April 2014

Lately, I've really been enjoying Australis  as a brand and trying out some of their new products.  Two of my favourites at the moment, are the Blush BFF's duo and the Velourlips Matte Lip Cream.

The thing I love the most about Australis, is that their products seem to always be great quality but are very reasonably priced, and these products definitely don't disappoint.

The Blush BFF's duo I purchased, is in the shade Shop & Goss  and I love it as an every day blush.  The thing I love the most about this blush, is how blend-able it is.  I tend to blend the two colours together, straight onto the skin and it all blends in easily and naturally.  The colour is also easy to build for a more dramatic effect.  I really like these particular shades on my fair skin, but there are three other shades also available in this range.  At $12.95 (AU) from Priceline, I think these are a really affordable little duo!

The one product everyone seems to be raving about at the moment, is the Velourlips range.  I purchased the shade Rio-D  and I LOVE  this bright, orange colour!  One thing to remember about this range is that they are lip creams, not  glosses - the consistency of the formula is very thick, almost like a lipstick in a bottle.  The colours are intense and personally I find that just the tiniest amount is plenty.  I apply a couple of small dabs on the bottom lip and then blend it thoroughly all over.  Of course, it depends on how bold you want your colour to be - if you want a more intense look, it's very easy to build up to a super bright, strong shade!  The only thing I don't like about this product, is that it seems to get a little cakey throughout the day and I find I need to blend it out with a little bit of lip balm.  But for $9.95 (AU), I think this is a great quality product and I would definitely consider purchasing some of the other shades to try.

As always, I'd love to hear your opinions on these products if you have tried them for yourself, so please do comment below and let me know!
