GOSH has always been one of those make-up brands that I overlook when I'm doing a make-up splurge but as soon as I saw the new Velvet Touch Matt lipstick collection circling around Twitter and Instagram, I knew I had to make those babies mine. 

Making their way into my ever-expanding lipstick collection (39 and counting, don't judge y'all), are 2 shades from the Matt collection - '002 Rose', a gorgeous pinky nude and '004 Coral', a bright orangey red - and I'm just going to put it out there that the whole collection is AMAZE.
I'm forever on the hunt for the perfect matte high-street lipstick and haven't really had much luck so far until now. The formula of these is just fab and rivals those of some of the more high-end matte lipsticks I own - which is great seeing as these are only £6.99 each! 
002 Rose is the shade I have been loving most out of the two and in the fortnight that I have been trying these out, it has definitely been well-loved! It is a gorgeously creamy pinky-nude shade (top description there...) and it has quickly become my go-to everyday colour. I think it's one of those colours that would look good on any skin tone and is real your-lips-but-better shade! I haven't had a chance to properly try out the Coral shade as of yet but on first swatch I fell in love and it compliments my pale skin perfectly! It's not secret that I'm a red lipstick hoarder and while this one is still technically red, it's a little different and much more of an everyday wearable colour! 
The lasting power of these is fantastic too as I found out on a 9-hour shift recently when I only had to touch up once - the perfect accessory for a gal with busy life syndrome! Since they are a matte formula and under a tenner I thought they would be quite drying on the lips to compensate but they are so creamy and comfortable to wear so big winners all round!

Of course I couldn't just walk away from my little haul with only 2 things in my basket so I thought I'd give one of their Velvet Touch lip liners a try too. I was quickly drawn to the MAC-esque packaging and I popped 'Antique Rose' into my basket in the hope it would be a more affordable dupe for the Soar/Whirl phenomenon - and I was right! 'Antique Rose' is a lovely nude-pink colour that is perfect for a 90's lip and again, the formula of these is a steal too at only £4.99!

I think I've found my new favourite high-street brand and I can't wait to add more of their products to my collection! GOSH products are currently on 3for2 at the minute in Superdrug stores and online so another haul might be imminent...

  2. I have to agree I always tend to overlook Gosh whenever I’m in Superdrug but these lipsticks look and sound amazing. I really want to get Antique Rose also but my local Superdrug are always sold out :( Think I’m going to have to have a mooch at the lipsticks next time I’m there :)

  3. I keep hearing about this Gosh brand and it's too bad they're not to be found in our stores. Lipsticks would be on my priority list ;) xx Maja

    1. Awhh no, well I hope you get a chance to give some a try eventually! x

  4. I've actually never heard of this brand before, but now I'm dying to try it out! ^^
    I think a lot of "smaller" brands tend to get overlooked, when they are actually quiet good!
