Phew! What a long blog post title!!! Anyway, I’m really excited today to introduce to you two luscious lip glosses from Australis Colour Inject Mineral Lip Gloss range – Bollywood (which was purchased by yours truly) and Disco (which was sent for consideration).
Australis Colour Inject Mineral Lip Gloss : Bollywood and Disco Swatches
Out of the two, Bollywood is my favourite. It is a sheer red creme. This is ideal for girls who are venturing into red lips for the first time but are worried about it being too full-on. Putting this on instantly brightens up my face as it adds a nice splash of colour.
Disco is described as a sheer orange, almost clear finish. Confusing because I see no orange in it at all. To me, it’s more of a pastel pink and it’s definitely not clear on my lips! Ideal for all occasions. My Hubby likes it when I wear this.
I was really impressed with these Australis lip glosses not just because they looked great on my lips but also because of their nourishing ingredients.
Vitamin E: Powerful antioxidant, moisturises and enhances skin smoothness
UV filters: Absorb, reflect, scatter and block ultraviolet radiation
Peptides: Stimulate cells to produce collagen. Smoothing, defining and moisturising qualities
Kakadu plum: Contains vitamin C aiding in the formation of collagen. Soothing and antiseptic properties
Jojoba oil: moisturising and skin protecting
Evening primrose oil: rich in Omega 6, smoothing and moisturising
Avocado oil: emollient, smooth application
– Mica: provides a natural luminosity and soft silky feel
– Titanium dioxide: Good covering power and natural sun protection

What I Look For In A Lip Gloss
1. Affordability – let’s not wipe out all my savings with one beauty product please!
2. Colour – must look good in the tube and must look good on my lips
3. Non-sticky formula – nothing annoys me more than sticky glosses which attract my hair
4. Smell and taste – Despise overpowering or bad chemical smells and tastes
5. Ease of application – I like doe foot applicators. Finger dipping lip glosses are a big no-no for me.
Australis Colour Inject Mineral Lip Gloss ticks all these boxes. The RRP is $11.95 so it won’t break the bank…if you only buy one…but you may be tempted to buy more than one as there are 10 sexy shades to choose from. I am happy with the non-sticky formula and the lychee flavour of the lip gloss makes me want to lick my lips!! The applicator is more big foot than doe foot but I’ll let that one go. But best of all, it actually makes my lips look good and feel good with its nourishing properties. A big win all around!
