GOSH Velvet Touch Matte Lipstick & Forever Lip Shine.

June 18, 2016 Syz 4 Comments


Assalamualaikum and hello you guys, today I'll be doing my first ever makeup review! *applause* Alright let's just get into it shall we? I got these two on a 2-for-1 sale offer at.... yupe, Boots. Apparently GOSH makeup were also included in the sale offer. I don't quite remember how much I got these two for, I think around AED 65? Anyway it was a good bargain. 


What I bought were the Forever Lip Shine in Love Story 003 and the Velvet Touch Matte Lipstick in Antique 003. Like any other reviews, I'll be going through the pros & cons based on my opinion. Before I start I would like to state that you all are entitled to your opinion and that's fine, some things may work for me and not work on others, I may like a certain thing and some may not like it, so yeah we all have our own preferences and as long as we acknowledge that we'll get along fine ^-^ 


GOSH Velvet Touch Matte Lipstick in ANTIQUE 003: I really like this lipstick for it's colour (you can see the swatch down below). It's more like hot chocolate kind of brown, and I may be over-reacting but it honestly smells like chocolate. I was on the hunt for some matte nude brown lipstick,  and it's hard when you're looking for something dark but at the same time not too dark y'know? It was not really surprising that I end up at the makeup section at Boots with a lady showing me bunch of nude coloured lipsticks. When I first saw this colour I was unsure of how it'll turn out on my lips, but being the risk taker that I am (aha, not really), I bought it. Alhamdulillah it is just perfect! And it suits my skin-tone just right. The texture is creamy when applying and ofc it turns matte, although it does make your lips feel really dry (then again that's how most matte lipsticks are), it's one of those "I feel it, but I don't see it". *UPDATE: Okay, turns out this lipstick wasn't the cause for making my lips feel like it's dried, it was actually the lip liner that I have paired up with it! Now that I think about it, I have never actually tried this lipstick all by itself, until today... Btw, it is currently 1am... Anyways, the lipstick keeps it's creamy texture when I applied it by itself, it doesn't feel moisturizing in my opinion, but it definitely doesn't make my lips feel dry either, I would say in the middle?*

Pros: 
- Brilliant colour.
- Creamy texture making it easy (and soothing?) to apply.
- Smells like chocolate.
- Perfect for fair or slightly tanned skin-tone.
- Turns matte.

Cons:
- Not really long lasting (will easily disappear when you eat/drink).
- Makes your lips feel dry (like the sahara desert...) 

GOSH Forever Lip Shine in LOVE STORY 003: Honestly I have mixed feelings about this one, since I reallyyyy love the colour which is more towards the purplish-pinkish nude (I'm just into nude coloured lipsticks nowadays hehe). I'm not sure if it's suppose to turn matte, basically what happens when you first apply it is that it turns shiny (hence the name "forever lip shine"). It isn't as glossy as a lip gloss, I think the word for it is metallic? Not really though... Although I feel like it turns matte after a while, it's like matte with a little shine (?) I already have a lip liner that is almost the same colour, so it looks really nice when paired up with each other. My problem with this is that it doesn't last very long and it easily fades, so I would constantly have to reapply it...

Pros: 
- Lovely colour.
- Creamy & silky texture.
- Turns slightly matte.
- Moisturizing (does not dry your lips).

Cons: 
- Not long lasting (easily disappears even without the drinking/eating).
- Not as pigmented (you have to build up the colour, which is a con for me since I have to apply a lot of it for the colour to show because of my natural lip colour).

Andddddd the swatches.....

That's all for this post! Thank you for reading ^-^
I won't be able to post as frequently nowadays.. Long story short, no wifi. Will post as much as possible as soon as the wifi's back, maybe I'll do a post on how I survived without wifi next and how I managed to publish this post hehe.
