In the 21st century world of girl power, you can think of your “power color” as any hue that makes you feel, well, powerful. Whether that means draping yourself in head-to-toe gothic black, or a fiery, in-control red, it’s totally your call. Remember: you’re the boss!

But since our love affair with lipstick will never be over, we’re all about painting our pouts with shades that help us be ourselves, but better. For some, it’s siren reds; for others, it’s all about the sultry plums. The bottomline is there’s no right or wrong color for feelin’ yourself! Australian favorite Australis knows that there’s a wide spectrum of “girl bosses” out there, all of whom deserve an equally varied spectrum of potential power colors to choose from.


Hence, their GRLBOSS Demi Matte Lip Creams line, which come in a truly impressive range of 50 shades (yes, 50!). The grape-scented lippies are buttery and soft as velvet, with a lightweight formula that feels as comfortable as a hydrating balm.

The finish is somewhere between a satin and a gloss, without the stickiness that’s typical of the latter. And if you want to mattify it, that’s easily achievable with a quick blot of tissue. Trust us, it stains so well, it’s like having a tint in your pocket, too.
Each lippie comes in a gorgeous rose gold tube, with “GRLBOSS” engraved onto its body. It has a flat, sponge-tip applicator that allows for mess-free swiping. And as a cool bonus, the brand is proudly cruelty-free and vegan—which means you can also rest easy knowing no furry friends were harmed in the process of perfecting your pucker.
We like these lip creams so much, of course we prepared a swatch guide for you. Below, you’ll find 37 shades from the Australis assortment you can shop on BeautyMNL right now. All of them have names like “Queen,” “Goddess,” and “Grrrl,” which just shows how they’re lovingly crafted to boost each wearer’s confidence.

Whether you prefer to go bold, go bare, or change it up everyday, we’re sure there’s a GRRLBOSS shade (or several!) that’ll feel like you. Scroll to spot ‘em!
