Product Review: Australis Pout Paste

Who isn’t always on the look out for a new lippie. And while I love a good lipstick, lately I have found that I’ve been using lipglosses a little more, simply because they are often easier to apply on the go. Here are my thoughts on the Australis Pout Pastes;

What They Say:

"A super high coverage pigment stain that provides an instant glossy pout. Available in three shades which can be mixed together to create your own shade! Available in three shades; Love Bites, Berry Nice Kiss and Pash Me Pink."

RRP: $12.95 – Available from Priceline, Big W, Kmart, Target and selected pharmacies nationally or from Australis Online

What I Say: 
I have previously used one of the Australis Colour Inject Mineral Lipsticks, which I absolutely love, so I was very excited to be trying the Pout Pastes, as well as I had very high expectations. 

Lately I have seen a lot of positive reviews about the Australis Pout Pastes – many saying they are a cheaper alternative to the OCC Lip Tars. But while I’ve heard a lot of good things about the Lip Tars, I have still to try them for myself, and well, consequently I can’t really comment on that!

The Pout Pastes are a new highly pigmented lip stain – way more pigmented than a gloss, and too creamy to be a lipstick, it is literally like a liquid or fluid lipstick! They are enriched with antioxidants to help prevent premature ageing, and claim to be non-sticky and moisturising to the lips.

The Pout Pastes come in a small squeezable plastic tube but with a little doe foot/wand applicator, which makes it easy to apply without making too much of a mess. They have a lovely but gentle fruity scent, which I quite like.

The Pout Pastes come in three shades:

Pash Me Pink: a vivid redish-pink, similar to a cerise pink

Berry Nice Kiss: a dark magenta coloured purple

Love Bites: a Bright red

According to the instructions on the back of the tube, you can apply a thin layer for a lipstick-like shine, or more layers for a full-on pout. In saying that, I found that even just a small coat gave my lips more than sufficient colour and there was no need to build up the colour further.

The Pout Paste is comfortable to wear, and does feel very moisturising on the lips. And like most lip glosses, they do fade, but it take a few hours (without eating or drinking), although before then, I did notice that it had started to bleed a little outside the lip line, and it wasn’t as glossy and shiny as when first applied. But due to the highly pigmented formula, the colour is still very noticeable on the lips. And as with any other gloss, it does transfer onto glasses when you drink, and hence disappear quicker.

All in all these Pout Pastes are fantastic products, perfect when you want to wear a lipgloss, but prefer a little more colour. And at just $12.95 they are fantastic value too!

The only negative I have about these Pout Pastes from Australis, is the fact that they only come in three colours. It would be lovely if they came in a wider selection of colours, to suit everyone’s taste, but hopefully with the many good reviews of them, more colours will be introduced in the near future.
