As a makeup artist I do a lot of testing of products. Recently I've been testing liquid lipsticks, as I want to add some to my kit for when clients request that look. Liquid lipsticks are long-lasting non-smudge lip products. Sounds ideal right? Unfortunately we don't live in a perfect world and the downside is that they often feel quite dry on the lips and can get a bit flakey during the day. I can't wear them a full day as the way they feel starts irritating me. However, for a shorter period of time e.g. a night out I find them perfect. In the photo you see me wearing the @australiscosmetics Liquid Lips in Pudd-ing. The colour is a very dark purple/berry colour, it makes me feel a bit gothic but I enjoyed wearing it. Australis is an Australian cruelty-free brand with a lot of vegan-friendly products, Liquid Lips is one of them. It's very affordable at A$11.95 and if you are Australia-based you can get these regularly at 1/2 price at @pricelineau, just wait for their big 1/2 price sales!
