Review: Australis 10 Hour Wear Pencil & Colour Inject Gloss

Australis products are definitely becoming more popular with quality that doesn't disappoint! Not long ago I was lucky enough to win a Colour Inject Gloss in Fandango from Australis and claimed the the "buy one get one free" offer from Priceline for my 10 Hour Wear Pencil in Bombastic Bronze. I was quite excited to try these products out as I've heard great things about it!


Australis 10 Hour Wear Pencil in Bombastic Bronze RRP $9.95
After hearing a few raves about this, especially from Mishelle from Mishelle's Sleepy Time I knew I had to get this eyeliner! Australis says it is a pencil that applies like a liquid eyeliner, waterproof and lasts for 10 hours. It comes in two other shades as as well, Aqua Attack and Grape Cake but I'm not adventurous enough to use such bright attention-seeking colours! I love how there is a bronze shade, I find that black eyeliner is too harsh for me.


Creamy formulation
Excuse the wonky swatch!
Thie beautiful eyeliner glides on so smoothly and its formulation is creamy and definitely didn't disappoint! There are very subtle shimmers which I like, giving it a bit of iridescence. So does it live up to its 10 hour wear? I used it without a primer for a whole day, and let's say I am impressed! No smudging and the liner stayed put, although there was very minor smudging on my bottom lash line but it wasn't much of an issue. The quality of the packaging feels great too except for its clear lid which makes it look a little cheap- and it would have won more points if didn't need to be sharpened. Despite that, this will definitely be a repurchase (glad I bought two of them!) as it has a superb formulation.

Australis Colour Inject Gloss in Fandango RRP $11.95
Thanks to Australis again for this lip gloss! I'm actually not a big fan of lip gloss as the shine and stickiness puts me off, as well as it somehow exaggerates the yellowness of my teeth (yuck). I've heard that Colour Inject Glosses have a nice colour pay off, as well as being nourishing, and containing and "injection" of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Sounds like a fun gloss!



Fandango is a bright coral colour which is great for summer! The first thing I noticed about the gloss was its delicious scent- Australis describes it as lychee but I find it quite fruity in general. Unfortunately for me the gloss was quite sticky and glossy, although it is meant to be glossy so I can't fault a gloss for being glossy!

Fuzzy applicator
Very glossy!
The colour was very pigmented which is impressive for a gloss. The swatch looks very bright but on my lips it was a little muted (my lip swatches did not turn out well and shouldn't be seen in public so I haven't posted a pic of it here). I quite like this coral shade and would be great for a night out.

Have you tried either the 10 Hour Wear Pencil or the Colour Inject Glosses from Australis?

    1. I love the eyeliner, I like its creaminess and how long it lasts! I would have loved a more nude shade for the gloss but hey, as a prize I can't complain :)

  3. Those two colors would seem like it would make a really classy look if you wore them together! And you're always either winning things or finding really great deals :)

  4. I really like the shade of that eyeliner! I've had something similar a long time ago but it was too slippery and didnt last, I picked up a few from the korean brand 'clio' and the brown is similar and their formula is amazing! That lippie looks exactly like one of NYX mega shine gloss. I've got 3 and one is a dupe for that shade! All the products I've been seeing from Australis seem awesome! Glad they both work for you^^

    1. I've heard of Clio but haven't tried their products before! I love Bombastic bronze as I don't have a liner that is this colour :) Ooh that's great that there is a dupe for it and yes Australis seems to be getting better and better!

  5. When I read '10 hour wear' I was like...does it really? I've not had the best experience with Australis products! Nice to know it really does stay put!

  10. I am curious to try the eyeliner - I'm a sucker for bronze eyeshadows and eyeliners :p I'm content with my Savvy by DB Brilliant Bronze eyeliner, but I think I'd like this Australis one too. The lip gloss looks perfect for the upcoming summer :)

    1. I love brown and bronze eyeshadows and eyeliners too! I haven't tried the Savvy eyeliners before, the only product from their range I have is their concealer which I'm happy with! The gloss is perfect for summer :)
