Australis Go Long Longwear Lipstick in colour diva
The packaging looks decent, comes with a matte black tube and pink text. I'm not too picky about the packaging of cosmetics.
As you can see, the colour is quite a true red which is fantastic. Many red lipsticks that I've seen either lean towards the berry side or coral red.
My lips 3-4 hours after application. It's absolutely nasty!
I'm aware that red lipsticks have the tendency of bleeding but I wasn't expecting something this bad. All lipsticks fade overtime but the problem with this one was that it was only the middle part that faded, which left me a "red ring" outlining my lips. It looked as if I applied red lip liner just around my lips. I was super embarrassed just thinking about how many people saw this before I realized it myself.
This is the only product that I've ever used from Australis, so I can't say too much about this brand. But I probably wouldn't consider buying their lipsticks. Surprisingly, I've read other blog posts on this lipstick and they are decent reviews.
