Brand: SAX Cosmetics
Range: Lipsticks (Rich Lip Colour & Sheer Lip Colour)
Shades: Sheer Nude, Soft Rose, Berry Delight, Plum Spice
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • SAX Cosmetics is an Australian family business founded in 1995, and is the Pharmacy Guild of Australia’s preferred cosmetic brand. This endorsement recognises that SAX cosmetics provide quality, is well presented and provide excellent value to customers
  • Sheer Nude is from the Sheer Lip Colour range, a creamy formula with a sheer tint with Candelilla, Beeswax, Lanolin & Silk Powder
  • Soft Rose, Berry Delight & Plum Spice are from the Rich Lip Colour range, a more pigmented velvety finish with Silk Powder, Calendula Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Jojoba Oil, Candelilla Beeswax an Vitamin E.   Both are free from parabens.
  • Love the “lock” packaging – one push & the lipstick becomes securely fitted into the case, and another push releases the lipstick ready for use.
  • Verdict: At first, I was undecided on the streaky creamy texture.  But hesitation turned into love after priming lips with Blistex Complete Moisture Lip Balm , transforming this lipstick into a beautiful high shine yet creamy finish. If you’re a “classic shade” kind of lady, do check out the 6 shades from each range  & don’t forget to prime lips to get the most out of this lipstick.
  • Link Love: Check out Tine’s  (Beautyholics Anonymous)  swatch of Coral here.

  • Silky, moisturising infused with antioxidants (Vitamin E), avocado oil, beeswax, jojoba oil and silk powder that give a light silky finish that retains moisture.
  • Available in 6 shades, I was offered to try Sweet Pea (sheer shimmer) & Mink (mauve).
  • The shades are subtle, but the texture envelopes your lips in a really smooth high quality formula – not at all what you’d expect for a gloss that costs only $12.95!
  • Comes with a slim doe wand applicator (not pictured)
  • Verdict: Although the shades are a little muted, I was truly taken aback by the quality of this lipgloss & the silky smooth texture is worth checking it out.  Within the 6-shade range there is also Peony, Coral, Cherry & Taupe.  Tine (Beautyholics Anonymous) swatched Coral here.
