GOSH Lipstick swatches

How is everyone today!? I’ve been suffering with tonsillitis the past week which is so lame, its hurts to swallow and eat which I’m the most upset about! Haha.

There are two GOSH lippie swatches for you on this miserable rainy day (in London!)

43 – Tropical Pink


A bright vibrant pink which lots of shimmer.  This is probably the most shimmery pink I own and I wasn’t expecting it.  The formula is very moisturizing and creamy, but I don’t wear this much as I don’t think the shade suits me very well.


134 – Darling

Okay, I am going to be really honest, and some people are gonna hate me for saying this, but, I really really dislike Darling.  I know it is everyone’s ‘favourite’ and holy grail, but I disagree.  Maybe its just me, but when I put it on it just looks like I have smothered my lips in concealer and lip balm.  Don’t get me wrong, its a lovely creamy lipstick and has a perfect texture, but the colour on me is just disgusting.  I have never worn this out and probably never will, unless I want to look like a zombie on halloween.  I have seen a few beauty bloggers which is looks gorgeous on, their perfect nude, but not for me. 

I do want to keep experimenting with this, maybe applying it with a lip gloss or something, because I really WANT to love it, but I just don’t.


Conclusion: The packaging is sexy and sleek, the formula of both are very moisturizing and creamy, but I do think there needs to be a few more colours to choose from.

What does everyone else think about these lipsticks? Am I the only one who isn’t Darling’s biggest fan? X

    Hi Katie!! I completely agree with you, I bought Gosh Darling and it looks awful on me! I bought it after reading about it on Laura (lollipop 26)'s blog and thought ooh that looks nice but it just looks a horrible mess on me!! 🙁
