Pricey vs Priceline: Matte Liquid Lipstick

by Madeleine Borgersen

Matte liquid lipsticks or glosses are the best! They have the staying power of a matte lipstick with the hydration of a gloss. They last forever and they come in some fantastic bold colours. But should you splurge or save on one?

Pricey vs Priceline: Matte Liquid Lipstick

Pricey: Hourglass – Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick – $43

I love Hourglasses range of opaque liquid lipsticks. They are bold, bright and never stray.

The perfect pick for a day when you cannot risk being caught out with lipstick on your teeth but also want to rock a statement lip.

They come in nine different shades from natural nude pinks to bright orange and everything in between.

Perfect for the warmer weather they can be applied once and forgotten knowing you won’t lose your bright pout at all throughout the day.

Priceline: Australis – Velourlips Matte Cream – $9.95

Offering a huge range of ten bright and different colours the Velourlips Matte Creams by Australis are vegan friendly and have a gorgeous matte finish.

Their colour is bold and buildable to create an opaque colour block over the lips.

Like their pricier counterparts they offer really great staying power. The Velourlips offer a definite younger range of colours with some amazing baby pinks, neon corals and lilac purple.

The Verdict:

Although the colour range in the Australis collection is amazing. The neon orange and purple are really cool, the finish and colour payoff of the Hourglass is second to none.

The Australis was quite drying on the lips compared to the Hourglass and they did take a fair few coats to get that opaque colour finish.

If you’re looking for a fun matte colour to build your collection definitely give one of the more out there Australis Velourlips a go otherwise if you want something that will be more of a staple lip colour definitely head to the Hourglass counter.

    Great post! I’ve tried out the Velourlips but the Hourglass offering has been on my wishlist for SO long – I might just have to take the plunge! 🙂

    I’m OBSESSED with the Hourglass ones and I don’t think I’ve tried anything that comes even close!
