GOSH Velvet Touch Lipstick in Romance and Yours Forever - Review and Swatches

These lipsticks from Gosh feel so soft and light weight on lips, its a sin not to blog about them. Gosh launched 8 new shades of the Velvet Touch Lipstick for spring/summer this year and I have two to share with you today. Lets talk about Romance and Yours Forever today!





SWATCHES
Single swipe

Heavily Swatched

MY EXPERIENCE

Love the light weight and non drying formula. Both shades have a glossy shine that makes them look a bit over the top for me. I would usually just blot it off my lips, so I get a little less shine and it appears more like a cream finish lipstick. That's my favorite finish for lipsticks btw. I like the creamy texture of this and it literally just melts on lips!! Its glides so smoothly and applies evenly. I did not notice any hideous white lines around my lips even after 4 hours.

Lets talk about a bit about the shades now.

Romance: Its a cool toned, light pinky-purple shade that pulls more purple on me. I don't think this shade works for my warm complexion. Its quite sheer too but it can be built to a medium with a couple of extra strokes.

Yours Forever: Who doesn't love a red lipstick, right? This one is a pink based red that looks amazing on my warm complexion. For me, this shade is definitely more evening appropriate and looks soo good in incandescent lighting. This shade goes opaque on a single swipe and stays true to color even with multiple strokes. Although in the swatch above it looks more red when heavily swatched but on lips it looks the same, just a bit more glossy... I blot that.

The only thing I dislike is that, the formula is so incredibly soft that I feel it transfers a lot more product on lips and I have to ...well...blot it off.

Thats my review on the much raved about Velvet Touch Lipsticks from Gosh Cosmetics. You can purchase these from Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada.

Thanks for reading :)
