GOSH Velvet Touch Lipsticks in 154 Burgundy, 153 Flirty Orange, 147 Sunrise, 152 Mandarin,148 Sundown, 134 Darling. All £6.49*
At a recent GOSH event I loaded up my bag with a few of their Velvet Touch Lipsticks. I thought I'd do a huge swatch-a-thon of them on my lips for you guys! The Velvet Touch Lipsticks are quite nice, they don't have any noticeable scent and aren't drying or cakey on the lips. I find the formula slightly varies from shade to shade though, but they are generally quite creamy and opaque. At £6.49 they are a good price for the quality and shade range. I don't think they are the best lipsticks I've tried from the drugstore, some of the shades do have a slightly thick feeling to them. But I cant work out if that is just me being super fussy!

Burgundy was obviously the darkest lip colour I picked up, Im not quite sure why I got it as I don't personally like dark lip colours on me and all the other shades I picked were orange toned so it was an odd one. GOSH Burgundy is a darkened berry shade which would look perfect in the winter time. It's wonderfully pigmented and is opaque in one swipe. I didn't find it was not too heavy on the lips either which I quite liked compared to some of the other shades.

I mainly choose oranges for some reason as I really like an orangey-coral lip. I don't think I own enough true orange lipsticks either as I tend to sit on the peachy pink end of the spectrum. Flirty Orange is a bright orange red which looks absolutely stunning. I think it would look lovely on a night out to give a pop of colour to the face. Definitely keeping it in mind for a Saturday Night! Sundown is a very sheer type of formula but it darkens my natural lip colour a bit to give it a soft orangey tint which looks really brightening. At first I felt it looked a little brown after one swipe although as it built up it did look more orange and less brown. Mandarina is a very pale peachy nude (my favourite, of course) which is opaque in a few swipes and is very very pretty. It reminds me of a creamsicle! It's definitely my favourite of the bunch! It's slightly thicker than the other lipsticks and I felt it was easy to apply a bit too much. Sunrise is similar to Sundown in formula as it's quite sheer initially but does build up to a creamy orange shade that is similar to Mandarina but not as creamy in finish.

When I started blogging GOSH Darling was the "in" Lipstick, literally everyone was talking about it and I swear if you didn't have it you just weren't a "real beauty blogger".  Although at the time I never had it but I thought I'd pick it up when I got these ones as it brought back some memories of the early days! Darling is a creamy pale nude with a pink undertone, Not quite right for my skin tone but it is a nice wearable nude and would suit less warm skin tones than mine. I probably could get away with it but there's just something a little too coprse like for my personal tastes!
Have you got any favourites from these GOSH Lipstick Swatches?

  22. Mandarina is my favorite! Seriously gorgeous. I wish Gosh wasn't so hard to come by here in the States, because they seem to do more nudes/creams than most high street brands here.

  37. Dark lips look so lovely on you! It's a shame you don't like wearing them, I think they complement your eyes really well. I do love my orange/coral colours myself though. Flirty Orange and Sundown are probably my favourites. :)
