FACE OF AUSTRALIA have recently launched 6 new lipstick shades in their Lip Quench collection and I got my paws on 3 of these babies to swatch for you today – Pink Champagne, Malibu Barbie and Forbidden Fruit. I love lipsticks which have names rather than letters and numbers (I’m looking at you Missha and Shu Uemura!)
Packaged in a tube with a see-through lid makes it easy to see which lippy to reach for. I find these FACE OF AUSTRALIA lipsticks moisturising with the shea butter and jojoba oil – which means that they glide onto lips easily. It is semi-matte and I am aware that I am wearing lipstick when I wear this…if that makes sense. And hello SPF 30+!!!!
There is a scent which is slightly floral, but herbal-ish (?) at the same time – but it’s not strong and overpowering so fear not.
Lasting power is 2-3 hours with Forbidden Fruit lasting the longest.
Overall, love the cheap and cheerfulness of the FACE OF AUSTRALIA Lip Quench range and did I mention that it has SPF 30+?
Pink Champagne is a pastel pink.
Malibu Barbie is a bright pink with lilac undertones.
Forbidden Fruit is a blue-based red which means you’ll have whiter teeth when wearing this!

RRP $9.45AUD at Priceline, KMart and fashionaddict.com.au (which ships internationally)
There is also an opportunity to win all 6 of the new shades on FOA’s new blog.
Out of these 3, my current favourite is Malibu Barbie. Which one do you like?
