Hiya friends!

So there are 8 colours in the range (in Australia) with each priced at RRP AUD $17.95. They have already started popping up in supermarkets and will be rolling out into Priceline and other chemists soon/ should already be there!

Firstly, I feel like I need to address the elephant in the room… The “matteness” of the liquid lipsticks. They aren’t matte. Well at least not within the first few hours, which after they turn into a stain. They are a liquid lipstick in the sense that they are normal lipsticks in liquid form, but not the type we are used to – Jeffree Star, Kylie Cosmetics, Lime Crime etc. It has a creamy texture and it applies so so smoothly – kind of like icing a cake!
