GOSH Velvet Touch Matt Lipsticks

L-R: Baby Lips, Rose, Antique, Coral, Classic Red, Raspberry, Cherry, Plum
After the success of their Velvet Matt lipsticks, GOSH has released a range of 8 matt shades*. As a big fan of matt lips, I was really excited to try these out and I was lucky enough to be sent the whole range to test out! As you can see the collection basically covers all popular bases, from nudes to deep berry shades there really is something for everyone.

My main worry with matt lipsticks is that they’ll be really drying on my lips, and luckily these aren’t. The lipsticks are made with natural waxes and hyaluronic acid which help to keep lips hydrated and smooth. I’ve tried a couple of lipsticks from the range so far and have included some photos below so you can see what they look like on!


This is the shade Antique, a beautiful nude brown. I’m always on the lookout for a good MAC Velvet Teddy dupe and this seems to be spot on! I find these shades really flattering for my skintone so I’ll probably be wearing this loads during Autumn.


I also tried the deepest shade in the collection, Plum. This purple berry shade is gorgeous and a really similar shade to the cullt favourite MAC Rebel. I think I’ll be wearing this one a lot too as I love bold purple lips.
Overall I’m really impressed with the collection and I can’t wait to test out the other shades! They retail for £6.99 each and should be available in Superdrug sometime this week.

  • I’ve never actually looked at anything from GOSH but I keep seeing more and more people talking about them. Really need to pick something up! Got my eye on that dark plum shade for A/W!

    Wow! I’m such a lipstick lover and I’m pretty sure I NEED all of these especially since they are mattes. Both the colors you tried look gorgeous in you. That plum really caught my eye though!

    • Albertine

  • Love a matte lipstick that doesn’t totally dehydrate your lips! Will look into these! x

    Oh, they all look beautiful. I love the two you’re wearing, gorgeous for fall or for anytime. I wish we had this brand here!

    • Albertine

      Ah thanks, it’s a shame GOSH aren’t available where you are!

  • I LOVE plum! It suits you so much! The packaging of these look really highend and much more expensive than they are. They don’t even look drying nor too matte which is great! Might need to try these. Followed you on bloglovin, thought I already was! xx
