Ive become a real fan of Australis products, they seem to offer real value for money, and their Go Long long wear lipstick range is no exception. With a creamy texture, yet very slightly matte appearance they are a great option for a long lasting lipstick. Now, they do not have the staying power and longevity of the LipVelour range, but they are a great alternative for those who aren’t fans of the extreme matte look lip colour. I have a few of these lipsticks and my intention is to keep adding to my collection. The below pics were taken after only one application of the shade ‘Uber Cool’. On an average day, I would definitely reapply once around lunchtime. If you’re after a nice lippy, with a nice price tag, check them out!
Last week I visited the pharmacy after a visit to the doctors courtesy of Mr 1’s recurrent ear infections. Along with the prescription I picked up one of these Miki Big Lippy sticks (well actually I also picked up an eyeliner as it was any two Miki products for $8 – the standard Miki deal…but I’ll chat about that later). I picked this product for two main reasons, 1) a lipstick crayon would be super easy and quick to apply (mummy must #1) and it was so inexpensive (mummy must #2). The big question I had though is, would it last? No mum (or busy person in general) has the time to be reapplying lipstick or any sort of makeup at regular intervals over the day. Well it’s safe to say I was pleasantly surprised! It lasted well for about 4 hours including breakfast and lunch in between. The only downfall was that after a few hours it left my lips feeling a bit dry, but as a mum I always have PawPaw ointment in my nappy bag, so that was quickly fixed. I will definitely be purchasing more of these…no doubt the next time my son is under the weather 😉
