The Best New Lip Lacquer
I know I’ve been posting a lot of beauty stories recently, but I can’t resist gushing about my recent find from GOSH Cosmetics. Their new lip lacquers arrived at my door via special delivery last week, and I’m officially in love.
I should start by confessing that I’m not much of a lipstick aficionado. While I appreciate a classic red lip or a burst of bright pink as much as the next beauty babe, I generally find lipstick to be too high maintenance for my very low-key approach to beauty. But these new lip lacquers are the answer to my lazy-girl prayers.
Available in eight pretty shades (ranging from pink and red, to orange and coral), GOSH Lip Lacquer glides on easily, with a sheer wash of colour that you can amp up or down, to suit your look. The consistency is smooth, not sticky, and unlike other lip stains, which can sometimes leave my lips feeling dry and chapped, the Argan oil and Vitamin E formula in the GOSH lacquer actually felt like it conditioned my winter-ravaged pout.
A few of the colours (namely Flirty Lips and Hot Lips) have found a permanent home in my purse and I love that I can apply them any time, without worrying if I’ve “coloured within the lines.” No muss, and very little fuss, means I’ve finally joined the ranks of the colour-happy. Smooch!
GOSH Lip Lacquer ($12) is available at Shoppers Drug Mart.
