GOSH’s latest lip launch comes in the shape of their Forever Lip Shines*. Falling somewhere between a gloss and a lipstick, these pigmented crayons are the perfect solution if you like a non-matte texture.
These come in a clever twist up design to make application easy, and the thickness of the product is just right for getting a precise application, even if you’ve got thinner lips. Yay! There are ten shades to choose from in the range and they’ve really done a great job at creating everything from a soft natural pink, right through to a deep berry shade.
As the name suggests, these are designed to be long-wearing and despite having a sheen to them, they last well throughout the day, only needing topping up after a meal. The texture is definitely more sheen rather than full on gloss, which I quite like. I usually avoid glosses as they tend to be sticky and I end up with hair stuck in it no matter what, so for someone who is usually a matte lip lover, I’ve been quite surprised at how much I like them. They also don’t dry out your lips, even with a full day’s wear, so double thumbs up on that front!
That said, they do have a bit of a synthetic smell to them which turns me off slightly, but I’ve never been one for scented lip products. It’s not so strong to stop me wanting to use them on a regular basis, just something to bear in mind when purchasing.
My favourite shade is 001 Baby Baby, which is a really nice nude pink shade and one I’ll be wearing a lot over the coming months.
Forever Lip Shines are £6.99 each and can be found in store and online from Superdrug and GOSH.
