Recently Australis added to their popular Velourlips range with 4 new shades.
I knew from the sneak peeks that Oh-Saka! which is described as a dusty rose would be coming home with me.
If you haven’t tried out the Australis Velourlips formula, I suggest you give it a go. The formula is quite moussey similar to the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams but I find they last a little longer on the lips, just try and keep the application light, so it doesn’t crumble. At only $10.49AUD a pop they are one of the better and cheaper liquid lipstick formulas on the market and also one of the most readily available. Plus they smell like blackcurrant lollies… yummmm
When I first swatched this I thought it was quite similar to a few other liquid lipsticks I own, I thought i’d do a bit of comparison showing it with Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Androgyny and Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita.
As you can see above, this isn’t really a dupe for either of those shades but they are in a similar shade range. Oh-Saka! is definitely much more rosey than the other 2. I’m kind of glad it makes me justify the purchase more! lol!
I did look at it a bit further though and also have compared it with Colourpop Lippie Stix in Lumiere, which i’ve shown below. This is definitely a closer match shade wise; with Oh-Saka! being just that bit deeper and again more rosey. Lumiere being a lipstick formula (even though it is a matte) is a also little more hydrating. However, Colourpop shipping to Australia is RIDICULOUS! So if you’ve had your eye on Lumiere this is a great and cheap alternative.
Have you tried the Australis Velourlips? Is there another shade I must own? (help me buy the things!).
