Gosh Darling Lipstick is a bit of a cult classic. I hear it popping up in Youtube videos, read about it in blogs and see it in magazines.
I have had Gosh Darling before, I popped it in a blog sale, I never got the hype. It was too chalky, too pale, didn't suit me, I needed to just forget about it. And forget about it I did......
I was browsing in my local Superdrug and spotted the infamous Darling. I picked it up, gave it a swatch, and fell in love.
Gone was the chalkiness, concealer look that I was familiar with and there instead was a delicate natural muted pink with beige undertones.
I don't know if it has changed but the formula seems so much more creamy and less drying than I remember.
I haven't heard that Gosh have reformulated there lipsticks, so maybe when I originally bought mine I just got a old one maybe??
What ever it is, I really like the rich creamy texture of this lippy.
On me Darling comes across slightly more pink which I personally like. I have mentioned before that I don't really like a nude lip on myself, this tho with it coming across slightly more pink rather than full on nude, is a colour I have found myself reaching for.
At £6.49 Gosh lipsticks are not what I would call cheap for a drugstore lipstick, there are so many great drugstore lipsticks out there at the moment.
However I do think that as nude lipsticks go this is a great one. Its not chalky and glides beautifully on the lips.
I am pleased that I decided to give Darling another go, it really has impressed me.
What do you think?
Are you a Darling fan???
