Latest Lovin' Combo -- Perfect Pout in PINK ft. Australis & Prestige

Back in Nam, all I used to ever wear were cute and natural pink shades... and maybe nudes. But it wasn't until I started hanging out with Alice the Malice (@arsyparsy) that I started to explore the bright and bold world of lippies.

And my favourite bolds to turn to?

I love me bold pinks! Instantly plumps up the shapes of my lips without seeking too much attention.. because I'm still a newbie to red lipsticks.

The combo that I am absolutely loving right now....

I've used Prestige's Waterproof Lipliner in 'Diva' that I purchased from the markets for $2.50.

'Diva' on its own

'Diva' is a deeper reddish-pink, which is pretty pigmented and stays on quite long for its super matte finish. And unfortunately because of that, it doesn't glide on too well (you can try warming it up a tad by a hair dryer or so) and does feel drying on the lips. Meep.

Too matte though, just too matte! I need some gloss in my life!

Of course, that's when Australis' Colour Inject Mineral Lip Gloss in Polka hits the stage and flaunts it glossiness!

'Polka' over 'Diva'

'Polka' is a cool-toned bright pink which is very pretty, but I personally wouldn't wear it alone. It's just too cool toned to work with my skin tone on its own. Nevertheless, its spectacular formula hasn't changed one bit! I haven't used Australis' Lip Glosses for yonks now and it's formula still serves to be super glossy in finish, smooth and not overly "annoyingly" sticky and slippery.

Prestige's Diva and Australis' Polka

However, because it's quite pigmented and the shade itself is so bright, it becomes super duper obvious when it transfers... so I'd be extremely careful that if it does happen to be a windy day, my hair doesn't transfer the gloss to my chin or anywhere else around my face (it happened). It could be annoying, but I've chose to just deal with it :)

Sorry friends, but I can see myself wearing this until the end of this Summer.. hope you won't be bored!

What's YOUR favourite lip combo right now?

  1. That gloss looks perfect! Love the combo :)

  2. My lips have been incredibly sensitive lately, so I haven't been wearing any lip products except lip balm :( But the brightest colour that I am comfortable with is Revlon's Lip Butter in Sweet Tart!

  3. I think it looks very pretty on you!!
