There have been many great lipsticks before them, and there will inevitably be many great lipsticks after, but this summer GOSH have stolen the must-have-lipstick crown from some of their more premium counterparts. Available in eight shades of loveliness, GOSH’s new Velvet Touch matte lipsticks offer an incredible pigment in a Vitamin-E enriched formula that glides on to leave a sophisticated finish. It’s slightly glossy to start with, drying to leave a non-powdery result that’s elegant and on-trend; at £6.99, these are totally purse friendly while giving much more premium brands a run for their money.
From the nudest of nudes, to bold coral and pink, right through to a cherry red and statement aubergine, within these eight shades is a tone for every lipstick need. The bullets contain hydrating oils and Vitamin E, but there’s no avoiding the dryness matte lipsticks cause – these definitely won’t last all day and definitely won’t leave your pout feeling plump, but when used in moderation with a touch of lip balm underneath to protect the surface, they definitely make a statement. They’re probably best worn of an evening or in conjunction with a dab of gloss (although that defeats the point of a matte finish,) but regardless they’re a fab budget buy. The darkest shade is completely comparable to a NARS lipstick I have which has the going rate of around three times the price; you just can’t argue with that. GOSH are definitely upping their game this season and this launch is the first of many to float my boat. Watch this space…
