Being a lipstick lover, I didn’t really think I’d give a lipgloss a lot of time. Oh, I had no idea how wrong I could be before I found the new GOSH Lip Lacquer.
They come in 8 lovely shades, from sheer to great coverage colour, from nudes and corals to pinks and reds – a colour for every pucker out there. And when they say colour like a lipstick, shine like a gloss, they weren’t lying!
To start with, the colour is great, even on the sheerer ones. The ones with more coverage are extremely pigmented; I was very surprised – the reds, especially, produce a great colour that will satisfy even the most hardcore red lippy wearer (read me!), with the added bonus of fading evenly.
Obviously, being a lipgloss, the durability is not that great, but re-applying is a breeze – it glides so well – and the little packaging makes it perfect for the smallest of bags.
However, the main plus of this product is that it is not sticky. Not at all. And they now have me; I’ve been carrying at least one shade in my bag everyday.
It also makes a great topper for lipstick, adding a nice sheen. And they are quite moisturising, with added argan oil and vitamin E.
My favourite four are the reds Hot and Dangerous Lips, the beautiful coral Flirty Lips and the bright pink Crispy Lips.
These Lip Lacquers are brand new from GOSH, just launched a couple of weeks ago, and are available from Superdrug for £5.99 each.
