Salsa with Gosh this Autumn

Remember one of the high end brands coming up with a product like this? Where the lip color gives the coverage of a lipstick and the light weight feeling and glossiness of a gloss. GOSH has come up with a similar product to give full coverage to the lips this coming Autumn/Winter.

Obviously I did not buy the high end version of this, so its a pleasure to see brands like Gosh creating similar products so everyone can try it within their budget.

The shade I opted for is Salsa. It immediately appealed to me, as what better than a mid-tone warm pink to compliment the chocolate brown furry boots that I love to sport. This would look gorgeous on almost every skin tone, especially medium to dark.

Does it deliver what it claims? It does to a 100%. Can you see that swatch below, that's just one swipe of the product. It gives me opaque lips in one-two swipes. I hate how lipstick can seep into the fine lines of the lips especially in the colder weather. This will obviously not do that and feel oh-so-light.

It has a sumptious shine to it but not that overtly glossy one provided by the usual glosses. It is indeed a very clever idea that GOSH came up with. I can see the product appealing to those who are not quite convinced to wear out a lipstick or a lip gloss.


There are 6 brilliant colors you can choose from. I now have my eye on the very first one above, Pink Beige. 


The lip colour comes in six seductive colours and is only available from Superdrug. Colours as above; Pink Beige, Nude, Blossom, Fuchsia, Red, Salsa.  £7.99 each

Ohh I am liking the look of this. I'm more a lipstick girl than a lipglosser but this tempts me.

That really is a lovely shade for you! I might look at these especially as GOSH is almost always 3 for 2! x

I saw this shade last time I was in Superdrug and was going to buy it but I ended up getting a MeMeMe blusher and saving this until next time! It looks lovely on you :) x

Pigmented gloss! Wooo!!

I'd be all over this but I'm right off GOSH, EVERY TIME I go to look at stuff, the display is messy and everything has been used and makeup has been transferred from one product to another.

@Rhamnousia - I totally agree! I go the Superdrug before uni i.e. early mornings when the display are in decent condition. That's the only time to shop in drugstores unfortunately.

Ooh this looks gorgeous - I like a glossy look on a night out but usually can't be bothered to keep reapplying lipstick and lipgloss, so this would be great! x

I saw this post the other day and loved the colour. I went into superdrug to look for the shade salsa but all the lipglosses just had numbers instead of names :(
Is there a number on your lipgloss or am I being really blonde and just couldn't find the name?
