Testing out GOSH lipsticks*

So I'll be honest with you here. Gosh isn't a makeup brand I've ever really delved in to very much, yes I've seen it in Superdrug, but for some reason I've never really tried anything from it. In fact I don't think I'd ever tried anything from it at all!


However this has now changed and I'm no longer a GOSH virgin!! I've been trying out a selection of their lipsticks, three from the matte liquid lipstick range and three of matte lipsticks so I think it's about time I give you the lowdown on them!

Starting with the liquid lipsticks the three shades I have are 002 Pink Sorbet, a hot pink shade, 006 Berry Me, which as the name describes is a berry purple shade, and finally Red Carpet, a vivid red.
Now if you know me you'll know liquid lipsticks are my thangg and I love finding and trying out new ones, what I also liked about the ones I tried is that they aren't usual colours I'd go for and definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone. But I'm glad they did as I've now fallen in love with more vibrant coloured lipsticks.

(Top to bottom: Pink Sorbet, Berry Me, Red Carpet)
The formulation of these lipsticks are divine and they glide on to the lips easily offering a full coverage without looking clumpy. They come out on your lips the exact same colour they look in the bottle too which is something I always look for in a lipstick as misleading packaging can be a big downer. They dry perfectly matte and once they're on they aren't coming off! Trust me if they can survive me eating a really greasy garlic bread, they can survive anything! The packaging is very sleek with a clear glass bottle and black lid embossed with the brands name on. Overall I'm very impressed with these and might have to get my hands on the rest of the collection and do a post on them all if that's something you'd like to read?

Moving on to the other three lipsticks from the velvet touch range I have the shades 019 Angel, a peachy pink, 020 Pleasure, a bright barbie pink and 023 Chestnut, a deep red brown shade. All three of them are matte which is my favourite lipstick formula and I have to say, again I'm very impressed with these! They're one of the creamiest matte formulas I've ever tried and ae seriously rivalling my love for Mac lipsticks right now! They last a good 5-6 hours including eating and drinking and the pigmentation of them is stunning. My favourite of the three I have is definitely Chestnut which is a pretty good dupe for Whirl by Mac.

Again just like the liquid lipsticks they have sleek packaging with them being all black but having the same GOSH logo embossed on them. Then the shade number, name and colour are on the bottom on a sticker. Honestly there really is nothing I can fault about these lipsticks!

So if like me you were a GOSH virgin, or maybe you just haven't experienced the joy of trying out these lipsticks before, I'd really recommend that you give them a go, especially if you like a matte finish! I know I'm definitely going to be getting my hands on some other shades and expanding my collection and I will hopefully try more GOSH makeup in the future and I'll let you know my thoughts on it, see if the other products can live up to these lipsticks. I hope you enjoyed this post and as always, thanks for reading.

  5. Yeeesss do a post on the rest of the collection! I love the look of matte lipsticks but don't wear them because they dry out my lips! I really love the chestnut colour. I'm a GOSH virgin but I'll look them up next time I hit Superdrug.

  18. I'm always so scared that Superdrug makeup will be tacky because of how cheap it is but these colours are so vivid! And I love how they do a liquid lipstick range. It would be cool to see some of the looks you do with these x
