Australis Velourlips Matte Cream in Bar-Tha-Lona, Doo-Bai and Shang-Hi – Photos, Reviews and Swatches

1. Bar-Tha-Lona

Bar-tha-lona review and swatchI would describe this as a bright pink-red shade and almost similar to the colour of a fully-riped watermelon. Delicious color, right? This is one of my favorite colors in this batch.

2. Doo-Bai

Doo-Bai Review and Swatch

If you are looking for that dramatic and vampy-ish color, then you should pick Doo-Bai. A burnt burgundy color that is perfect for the fall season or whenever you feel like having bold lips or even that sultry and sexy look.

I did not mean to wear the same outfit when I did the swatch for Australis, LOL! 😀

3. Shang-Hi

Shang-Hi Review and Swatch

This was the first shade that I bought and it’s on top of my list. Just look at that beautiful deep magenta color, isn’t it gorgeous?!

Shang-hi

 PROs:

  • comfortable on the lips; it feels very light on the lips.
  • opaque and pigmented
  • long wearing
  • long lasting
  • Vegan-friendly & cruelty-free
  • Price
    • This is priced at 9.90 SGD per tube.
  • Availability
    • Though this brand is not available in department store counters here in Singapore, they have several authorized distributors like LAYCY where I ordered mine.

CONs:

  • I did not like the fruity smell of the product. 😦
  • Some shades were very challenging to apply, specifically Ro-Ma and Mi-A-Mee.

Berry’s Useful Tips:

  1. Make sure that you exfoliate and moisturize your lips.
  2. Use lip balm (before applying and after removing)
  3. You can always use a lip brush to help you apply the lip product evenly. ;D

No amount of makeup can mask an ugly heart.

  1. You know what? You should do something like “applying lipstick for dummies” (like me) hehe. Your lips are always gorgeous and me, on the other hand, I’ve just bought only my second lipstick since forever so I am totally in need of a tutorial. 😀
