What we say:
I was lucky enough to try out two of these lip glosses – Soft Coral, a nude-like shade, and Raspberry Galore, a darker pink shade that reminds me of winter berries. Firstly, I was very impressed by the colour of both shades. Soft Coral gave my lips a shimmery nude shade, which reminded me a lot of the nude lips I’ve seen on the red carpet recently. Raspberry Galore gave my lips a pop of colour. The dark pink / purple suited my complexion perfectly and the hue was solid and true.

Both shades lasted incredibly long on my lips. After a couple of hours I could still feel the gloss on my lips and when I looked in the mirror, the colour was still there and in tact, despite my constant sipping on tea and water. I like the consistency of the product too; it’s nice and thick but still spreads easily. The applicator is slightly slanted on one side, making it super easy to apply the product along the curve of the lips.

My one and only criticism is that I didn’t enjoy the “taste” of the gloss. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but I would have preferred it if it had a fragranced scent to it. Other than that, it ticks all the boxes.

  1. I really love lip glosses which give lips a good volume, mainly because fuller lips look more plump and pouty but not too trout pout because nobody likes fish lips. I’ve been searching for a good lip plumper for a while and I’ve noticed that GOSH cosmetics had a really good lip plumper, and I was eager to give it a try.

    I chose the colour Raspberry Galore because it was a deep pinkish red mix which gave a lovely colour over my lipstick. I wore it alone and it was a cute shimmer pink with a high glossy finish. I was surprised, my lips looked slightly fuller and more plumpy than they normally looked, I was really excited.

    However no matter how glossy the lip gloss was, and how much volume it gave lips, I felt it was a bit too thick and heavy for my lips, and it left my lips a bit too sticky when I used it by itself, but with the lipstick it wasn’t as sticky. Once the gloss was out, I used a make up remover to remove a slight tacky (moisture layer) from my lips.

    On the bright side, the gloss is water proof and even water can’t move this gloss, however this gloss isn’t transfer proof and spreads the sticky gloss everywhere. But if you really don’t mind the thick gloss or slight sticky feeling then I would recommend you give this gloss a try. It comes in a hard plastic tube with a lovely applicator which gives a perfect slick of gloss. And if class is what you’re looking for then this gloss is perfect because the lid has a soft touch black cover which feels extremely smooth to the touch, I really love it.

    If bright Raspberry isn’t your colour, there’s many more colours to try, because this product comes in the following 8 irresistible colours:
    01 Soft Coral
    02 Cherry Blossom
    03 Tea Rose
    04 Juicy Orange
    05 Red Stiletto
    06 Raspberry Galore
    07 Burgundy
    08 Nude
