I have read so much about this lipstick on many blogs now. I do like nude lipsticks, as I am fair in colouring and tend to emphasise my eyes most, I prefer my lips to be more natural looking.
I already have one great nude type lipstick that I adore, Urban Decay's Naked, a pale pink lipstick that just looks great with my skin. It is nice quality but doesn't really last more than a few hours, but I do love it anyway.
Having heard so much about Gosh Darling I thought it was time to hunt it out and give it a go. At £6 it is reasonably priced, compared to my Urban Decay Naked at £11. But would it be as nice?
The packaging is lovely, very classy. Just a nice plain black, slightly rubberised case, with a shiny metal band in black, bearing the Gosh name. The case has a good strong click to its closure too, meaning it shouldn't come loose in your bag!
Well it is a very nice lippy. The colour is more of a beige than UD Naked. It is a proper nude with a slightly peachy tone, not quite pink but not too far off. It is nice and slick, leaving my lips feeling supple. You have to be careful that your lips are smooth though, otherwise it will sit in cracks or on dry bits and look awful. Luckily mine are okay so it looked even and gave my lips a nice muted look. It turns my lips more beige and so more skin toned, as my lips are naturally very pink, so this is good for me as another option. It has little staying power though, less than UD Naked at only around an hour or so, so reapplication is a must with this one.
I am very happy with this addition to my lipsticks. Sometimes I need a beige nude instead of a pink nude, so now I have both options with UD Naked and Gosh Darling. It will now sit in my most used cosmetics pile.
I will see if I can review Urban Decay Naked in a future post if you wanted to see it, just let me know :)
