GOSH Liquid Matte Lips and CCC Stick Review

What’s New at GOSH ? Recently GOSH cosmetics released couple of new products like the Liquid Matte Lipstick & the Highlight and Contouring Pencils. I have tried these products and totally in love with them. In today’s post, I shall share my views about these new products.

You all know by now, that GOSH is one of my favourite drugstore brand. They are paraben free, natural and cruelty free ! Their quality is amazing and can be compared to high end brands like MAC. The prices of the products are very reasonable comparatively.
Without further ado, let’s go ahead with the review.
1. Liquid Matte Lips :
It is GOSH first ever Liquid Lipstick and comes in 8 different shades. The shades that were sent to me by the GOSH Team for review are 001 Candyfloss, 003 Nougat Fudge and 008 Arabian Night. The packaging is sleek and simple and it is a transparent tube, which makes it easy to identify the colour. GOSH Liquid Matte Lips are free from any artificial scents. 
GOSH Liquid Matte Lips are really very long lasting matte lipstick and very pigmented. They glide on smoothly and give you wonderful color in just one application. It lasted for good 6 to 8 hours without any touch ups. The color just faded gradually though. 
The Formula in the product is designed to make the product stay put, once applied. They do not smudge once the temperature rises. I love the applicator as well which is very easy and is of the perfect length and width. Also it is easy to access the corners with this easy sponge applicator. GOSH Liquid Matte Lips contain plant oils that keeps the lips hydrated throughout. So a Thumbs up for that.
This lipsticks are not ultra matte ones. I suggest you to allow the lipstick settle for at least 10 minutes or so after application. They are not transfer proof as well. Also, I recommend to exfoliate your lips before wearing any liquid matte lipsticks and also wear lip balm if your lips are super dry.
Benefits :
– Easy applicator with flat sponge brush
– Long lasting
– Intense Colour Pay-off / Highly pigmented
– Hydrating
– Soft and Creamy texture
– Contains LiPerfection  which increases the microcirculation in the lips.
– With Dandelion
– Paraben Free 
Swatches :

Candyfloss is a mute pink with neutral undertone. 
Nougat Fudge is one of my personal favourite and of many other bloggers as well. It is a pinkish peach with neutral undertone. 
Arabian Night is a dark purple shade and good for those who want to go for bold lips.

2. CCC Sticks :
CCC sticks are a must have product to Contour, Cover, Conceal, Strobe and define. The CCC stick is designed to create flawless complexion. They come with clear caps and are retractable. I have received the shades 001 Vanilla Highlighter, 004 Medium and 006 Very Dark from the GOSH team generously.

The CCC stick texture is quite creamy, easily blendable and have a matte finish. They are very pigmented too.

Benefits :
– High Coverage
– Contains White Clay which has excellent absorbing qualities thereby remove the excess oil, dirt and pollution of the skin.
– Crease Proof
– Soft Focus effect
– Eliminates small imperfections
– Encapsulated Lactic Acid, delivers a gentle cleansing action, reducing oil in the skin.
– Protects, hydrates & soothes the skin
– Perfume & Paraben free

Swatches and Review :

001 Vanilla Highlighter and 004 Medium are great multi-taskers. You can use them to highlight the inner corner of eyes, temple area above or the tip of the nose, bridge of the nose, underneath the brow bone, above the lips, highlight the cheek bones, etc. They are great eyeshadow base too but definitely prime the eyelids before using or apply a powder on the top, to avoid creasing on the eyelids and set them properly.

006 Dark is great for contouring and blends very well. You can apply a small amount gently using a ring finger or a brush and gently dab with a beauty blender or a Contour brush.

The CCC stick can be layered with a powder for better coverage. They last throughout the day and don’t get patchy or greasy. If your skin is oily, you can apply powder on the top to set it.

Overall Opinion :
I am very pleased with both the new launches. GOSH Liquid Matte Lips are moussy and don’t dry your lips. 004 is excellent for my brow bone and a great asset to make my brows on fleek. Also it is matte and pigmented and make my brows look super neat. As usual Thank You and Congratulations GOSH for making such brilliant products.

Price :
Liquid Matte Lips – AED 75 each
CCC stick – AED 80 each
They are available at various Lifestyle stores and Boots pharmacies across UAE.
