Gosh you say // Matte Lipsticks with swatches

I did sit here trying to think of something witty to introduce this post, but I’ve drawn a blank. So here are some lipsticks I liked when I went to the shop that time that sold makeup. I haven’t ever tried anything from the brand Gosh, which as far as I know is only sold in Superdrug and lots of people claim is very underrated. These were part of a 3 for 2 and as I was going to pick one up anyway, I decided it would be plain stupid not to get a free one!

The packaging is black, simple and quite nondescript. But I like that. Both the top half and bottom half have a matte finish, which makes it feel more sophisticated than your average drugstore lipstick. So far, I haven’t noticed that it leaves makeup smudges on it, as you find with the Nars packaging, which can only be a bonus! The bullet itself has Gosh embossed into it and it’s quite a way down so won’t get worn away straight away. Overall the packaging is extremely nice in this product.

I originally wanted a pinky nude and eventually decided on the shade 002 Rose. After getting it home I realised it is pretty much a complete dupe for Rimmel 208, not so much a bonus for me as it is for you guys. The ‘freebie’ I chose was in the shade 004 Coral, which is as the name suggests a warm orangey shade.Gosh lipsticks makeup blushmedo 161215-6

Both of these are from their matt range, but for me they are more of a satin (not matt or very shiny). Because of this, as with most matt lippies I have come across they do drag a bit on the lips but are very opaque with a nice pigmentation. They do stay on for quite a while, but then they become very dry and patchy. I haven’t tried them on with a liner yet, but I can’t imagine this would help with the dryness unless it’s something with a bit of moisture.

I wouldn’t be much of a trustworthy blogger if I didn’t give you my honest opinion now would I? So, if your looking for a budget lipstick then I would give these a go. I can’t say that I will be rushing out to purchase more of the matt ones. They are available from Superdrug here, priced at £6.99 each they aren’t the cheapest on the market but may be worth it on a 3 for 2 if you are wanting to try out something different.

What are your opinions about the Gosh matt lipsticks?

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed it!
