If you read my review of the GOSH Frosted Sand Nail Lacquers (link here) then you will have heard me mention that I had a few more products from GOSH's new Spring/Summer collection to review over the upcoming weeks and months.

I was lucky enough to receive four of their new lip lacquers and it's safe to say I've quickly become besotted with these gorgeous glosses.

The pigmentation really is exceptional when it comes to these lip lacquers. I've never tried a gloss quite like these before. Even though I've had my eye on a few of the YSL Glossy Stains recently, I think I'll be sticking to the GOSH range of lip lacquers instead. From what I can tell when it comes to the YSL Glossy Stains, I have a feeling that the GOSH lip lacquers could be a very good dupe for these when it comes to the pigmentation and even a few of the shades. At only £5.99 the GOSH version is considerably more purse friendly when you compare it the the £25 YSL price tag. And it is always worthwhile to remember that Superdrug, who stock the GOSH Cosmetics line, regularly run deals and promotions on the GOSH range and store-wide which make reasonable prices even better. The entire range of GOSH Lip Lacquers are currently £3.99 at the moment meaning you can try out a few different shades or stock up on some of your favourites.

If you've read any of my previous reviews of lip glosses (Soap & Glory's Sexy Mother Pucker XL Lip Gloss (link here) and Benefit's Dandelion Ultra Plush Lip Gloss (link here)) then you will know that I'm pretty picky when it comes to glosses. Any that are too sticky are automatically dejected from my make up bag and from my use. So I was pleasantly surprised to find that despite these being very glossy they really weren't too sticky at all. I only had to reapply the lacquer after a good number of hours so I would say that these really do last well considering how glossy they are. Even as the gloss inevitably fades the colour sticks around on the lips which is a huge plus point for me. You basically get the benefits of a lipstick and a lip gloss in the one product.

These also feel so soft on the lips and incredibly nourishing, which may come as no surprise since they are enriched with argan oil and Vitamin E. I can definitely feel a difference to my lips when I remove these at night and even the next morning my lips feel softer than usual, which isn't normally a quality I would associate with a lip gloss.

I also really like the packaging. I know that some have said that they have confused these with nail lacquers but since GOSH are billing these are lacquers for the lips I think the packaging is really on point. Plus I tend not to carry my nail lacquers and polishes around with me in my make up bag so I don't think I would make the error of applying these to the nails. Hehe.

What do you think of these lip lacquers? Will you be picking any up whilst they are on offer? If you've tried them out what do you think of them?

  1. Great post. These look scrumptious! Haha... particularly the Funky Lips shade. Definitely look like a great dupe for the YSL and at that price I think I will just have to nip out and buy myself a few of them. :)

  2. the packaging is really similar to nail polish but i agree that it is unlikely to get confused as i don't keep my polishes and lipsticks together - they sound really good though! xx
