New favourite lip product

GOSH Soft n Shine lip balm in Sweetheart (39)

Sunday again :( *le sigh*Hope you had a fantastic weekend!

Today has been totally awesome cos we put the Christmas tree up so the house is all festive and cosy. Then I went to the cinema and watched Megamind (best animated film I’ve seen in ages) and generally just pottered about after that. Perfect Sunday in my opinion :)

I wanted to mention a lip product I picked up recently cos it’s quickly become one of my favourites

This is such an odd item because it looks like a lipstick, the package says it’s a balm, yet when it’s applied it looks like a gloss :/ So far I haven’t found a single fault with this (Give me time. There’s bound to be something!) so figured it deserved a few words of praise

A few things I love about this:

Packaging: Sleek, simple, thin black metal tube. Different from any other product I own and I think it’s very plain and elegant

Smell: Sweet subtle vanilla scent. Pleasant but definitely not overpowering

Texture: Although this looks like a lipstick it goes on like a good quality lip balm and managed to stay feeling smooth and creamy for ages. I haven’t found anything else that looks as good as this whilst still feeling exceptionally moisturising

Appearance: Theres a great selection of colours and after debating with myself for about a decade the shade I’ve gone for is pale pink with a hint of shimmer. It’s not drastically different from my natural lip colour so I can get away with wearing this with pretty much any makeup look

Price: Under £8

Right, I best be off because I wanna make some tea and read a few chapters of my book before I head to bed ♥

It looks really nice, I've not tried any Gosh products except nail varnishes and I love those. Such a bargain too!

that's one of my favourites, too! I love it! and I like how it stays on quite well considering it's light formula.

Sisi it’s from Superdrug. I’m not sure if it’s sold anywhere else but that’s the only shop I’ve spotted it in so far (www.superdrug.com)

Stacey I couldn’t agree more! Tried a couple of the polishes on a whim because there was a 3 for 2 offer and I was well impressed :)

Cheeky Beauty I was in Superdrug this evening and happened to be in a really good (and generous) mood so picked one up for you. Hope you like it as much as I do ♥

Charlie that was one of the first things I noticed too! Most balms seem to disappear without a trace after an hour or two but this was surprisingly long lasting
