Review: Australis Color Inject Mineral Lip Gloss

This is another Oz post because this product is only available in Australia, so for everyone else.. you miss out. But I'm sure we miss out more on the deals you guys get such as BUY 1 GET 1 FREE, the refund policies and $1 brushes from ELF, of course. *still jealous*

What is it So glossy and nourishing, long lasting but it’s also moisturising. It’s an injection of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, your very own lip doctor. It contains Kakadu plum which is one of the world’s highest known sources of vitamin C. Vitamin C is not only soothing, but also naturally stimulates collagen formation. Moisturising, smoothing and lip defining peptides are added to help make this the hottest thing on everyone's lips!

Why we love it Super gloss, super moisturising and super fun colours! Lip defining and long lasting without that sticky factor. Plus it has the most delicious lychee fragrance.

RRP $11.95

I definitely love the texture of this lip gloss. It glides on smoothly and comes on very slightly sticky, which I like. It doesn't glide around on my lips, but rather sits on a spot... so I'm not worried it will smear or so. This product is my second favourite lip gloss after the Estee Lauder Pure Colour Gloss.. beats all my other current lipglosses HAH! And that includes the NYX Round Lip Glosses and the Missha Lip Glosses :)

I'm unsure about the long-lasting but there's nothing significant, however, its long-lasting power would be average or beyond, not below any other lip glosses.

Nothing extraordinary. Did I mention that... it's a pure glossy finish without shimmers or glitters. Which I like, because shimmery/glittery gloss is not my thing.
First coat is a little sheer, however, is buildable.

Although it says it has a lychee scent, I think it has more of a peachy scent. I'm not really sure. I can never detect a particular scent... whether it's floral or fruity. However this scent doesn't bother me. I think the only scent I can identify is coconut... because I hate it with a passion... *ahem* Revlon Colorstay Mineral Lipglaze.

Available in 10 shades and the most popular is Lambada which is a 'light pink creme' which I have never tried. In fact, I only have one gloss in Bellydance which is a coral shade and I definitely LOVE it! Each shade is supposed to match each shade of their Color Inject Mineral Lipsticks, but mix n' match creates a unique shade for you!

I don't find this product drying OR moisturizing on my lips. This, for dry lips is OK but definitely NOT for flaky lips. It does put little emphasis on flaky lips -- I actually never came across a lip gloss which won't put emphasis on flaky lips.

It comes with a longer-than-normal, slightly tilted and flat applicator which I like. I find this super easy to apply on my bottom lips and also allow me to quickly build up the intensity. This applicator is quite a unique shaped sponge applicator though..

Side view

This gloss comes in a tube of 7ml by the way.

Here's an overview for all you lazy people...

  • Can be picked up at cheaper prices as there's usual sales for this brand
  • Fairly pigmented
  • Buildable
  • Availability (can be found everywhere.. in Priceline, Big W, Target..)
  • Decent long-lasting
  • Doesn't have the stickiest texture
  • Available in 10 shades to match their Color Inject Lipstick range (yay!)

  • Only available in Australia

I recommend, repurchase and will collect!
