The Drugstore '90's Lip'

33 comments

Australis is a brand most Australian girls will know well. It's super affordable, comes out with on-trend colours and products while also maintaining a really great quality. Their lip products have always been what stood out to me most due to some really out there shades that other drugstore-type brands just weren't offering in Australia.

I have been looking hard and trying lots of different shades that seem to make the cut when it comes to the perfect Kylie Jenner-esq lip, but I always find them being slightly more on the pink side with barely any brown undertones to them. Australis's lip pencil in the shade 'Tickled Pink' seems overwhelmingly brown on first swatch, the same way MACs 'Whirl' is, and leaves you wondering how it will actually look on the lips. It looks amazing - very 90's, very Kylie and the perfect balance between the brown and pink tones.

Upon first application the pencil does feel like it pulls and is overly waxy, however that seems to be a coating as after the first use it became very creamy but with still the right amount of tackiness that suggests that it will be long wearing. The formula is matte and the same rules apply as with most lip liners - exfoliate and moisturise before application. I find that applying the liner first and adding a little clear balm over the top on dry lip days works a treat if you're not too fussed about the matte look and still want to rock the colour.

If you have access to Australis and are looking for a cheaper version of the coveted MAC liners this is definitely something to check out! What is your favourite 90's lip shade at the moment?

  1. This shade does look very 90s! I haven't experimented with the Kylie Jenner trend yet, I have no idea if it will suit me! I'll definitely be experimenting with lower cost products, and will for sure give this one a look in!

  9. Because it's nude I think it suits most people, you might just have to play around and see if you suit the pinker or browner tones more! x
