FACE OF AUSTRALIA is probably my favourite Australian drugstore brand. I love the FOA make-up remover and FOA HD eyeliner and of course, their funky nail polish collections! And now, I have developed a sweet love for their new limited edition FACE OF AUSTRALIA Sheer Gloss Lip Crayons. This trio only costs $15!! It is exactly what it says it is – a sheer gloss lip crayon. No sharpening is required as they wind up from the bottom.
There are 3 everyday colours with the cutest names – Macaron (sheer red), Cupcake (sheer cool pink) and Sundae (sheer caramel). Please note that my swatches are on the heavier side as they are more sheer in real life.
I’ve read reviews that the FOA Sheer Gloss Lip Crayons are a similar but glossier and shorter version of Clinique Chubby Sticks. I wouldn’t know because I cannot justify paying what we pay in Australia for Clinique Chubby Sticks – $35 AUD!! :P
Anyway, I’m pretty happy with these cute little wonders. The only thing I don’t like is that they are limited edition – noooo! And also, I kinda have to reapply quite often because it doesn’t last very long on my lips with my constant tea-drinking and snack-munching antics.
Enough rambling and let’s get some lip shots in action…
FACE OF AUSTRALIA Sheer Gloss Lip Crayon in Macaron
Yeah, Macaron is my favourite shade of the trio. It makes my lips look plump and juicy.
FACE OF AUSTRALIA Sheer Gloss Lip Crayon in Cupcake
Cupcake is a cool-toned sheer pink which I like to wear under lipstick as a lip priming base. Speaking of cupcakes, I could so eat one right now…!
FACE OF AUSTRALIA Sheer Gloss Lip Crayon in Sundae
The neutral work-safe shade is Sundae - and it’s like MLBB – My Lips But Better. Oh yeah!
What do you think of the FACE OF AUSTRALIA Sheer Gloss Lip Crayon trio set? I think it’s a winner!
