Oh my Gosh!

GOSH Velvet Touch Lipstick in Kitch (86)

A swatch light berry colour

GOSH Kitch on my lips


I thought it was time to change it up my posts a bit, it's been a little bit fashion heavy,so lucky for you guys I am doing a beauty related post. A few months back, I popped into Superdrug in need of the perfect  lipstick. It had to be pigmented,but not too loud, it had to  suit my skin tone, it had to be moisturising and most importantly it had to be affordable. Now, I've been described as picky(that's probably why it took me nearly 40 minuets to find my perfect lipstick) but a girl can't be hasty when it comes to these things.

In my quest to finding the perfect hue, I came across GOSH Cosmetics. I had heard about the famous GOSH Darling, from beauty gurus on YouTube and through blogs. Gosh Darling is apart of the brands velvet touch lipsticks, I decided to go with Gosh Kitch which is a light berry shade. 

What GOSH says: GOSH VELVET TOUCH LIPSTICK gives an intense and lasting colour to the lips due to a high concentration of colour pigments. The creamy lipstick contains a new type of light reflecting pigments that give the lips a bright and shiny look. 

What I say: What I love about this lipstick is that it glides on effortlessly,leaving a moisturising finish,so there is no need for lip gloss. The colour is pigmented and is the right shade for me,and I think it would suit a lot of skin tones. The lasting power is okay,but I did have to re apply it a few times when I was out. Overall a good lipstick which is about £6.49 at Superdrug.

Have you tried GOSH lipsticks or any other GOSH brands?

The Lust List:008

Lust List:008
  1. Peg Leg Trousers~ Missguided £23.99
  2. Tailored Pleat Dress~Missguided £23.99
  3. Heels~Romwe.com £28.74
  4. Green Envelope Purse~ ASOS £20.00
  5. Sunglasses~ASOS £15.00
  6. Metal Tip Clutch~ ASOS £18.00

What's up guys how has your summer been so far? Sorry I have been late with this week's list, but I have been trying to sort my life out and get a placement. Anywhoo in my downtime, I have been trawling the web and found lots of goodies to share with you guys.

Peg leg trousers were an item I would have shied away from in the past, but these pair are just too cute. Their apricot and rolled up at the ankles, definitely a staple item for the summer wardrobe. Another apricot item from Missguided, I'm thinking a cream blazer and chunky heels would look great with this dress.

Now nearly every blogger I have seen has Jeffrey Campbell heels. Be they the famous Lita's, Alexa's or Foxy sandles! However, if you are in the UK and are coveting these famous shoes,you know how hard it is to get a pair.So I'm so glad I stumbled  upon Romwe.com who have a dupe for only £28.74! Now you can look stylish for a cheaper price. I still haven't bought anything from Romwe yet..mainly due to lack of funds, come quickly loan.

A clutch bag in green or one in burnt orange? I can't decide, each is simple yet chic in it's design. I like the metal gold tip on both of these bags,but the green one look more structured ,so I think it's my favourite out of the two. I've been looking for this type of sunglasses for ages now  and for £15, I think I might need to pop over to ASOS and purchase them. But I think I'll have to wait till next year to wear them,judging by the weather. Heatwave yeah right!

 
On a side note,has anyone seen this advert from Nokia? I love it

Favourite new pieces!

High Waisted Leather and Denim Skirt~H&M


Blue jersey dress with plaited belt~Internacionale

Brown Leather Shorts~Clothing at Tesco, White Blouse~New Look

Triangle Fringed top~Internacionale, Blue Fringed Top~Primark




Heels~New Look, Loafers~Primark,Wedges~New Look, Feather Trilby~New Look
 

You guys must think I shop all the time! I have had these clothes for a few weeks and months and didn't have time to take pictures of them. Nearly all the skirts I own are high waisted, they are a flattering shape on me and I always pair them with a tucked in graphic t-shirt.

The blue dress is something I bought during exams, when I needed to get out of the house. The plaited belt adds a Grecian feel to it I think.I'm thinking gold sandles and a my gold leaf headband would finish the look well. 

Now normally, I hate loafers but after walking past these bad boys in Primark, I had to have them. As you guys know whenever I do an Lust List, I nearly always add heels, but I can never walk in them. I got the purple pair in December, in the sale for £12!. so...technically they are not a new item.Both shoes have a platform making them very easy to walk in. Thanks New Look for your amazing shoes. 

Finally getting used to using my tripod and my camera. Excuse the hand and the bad paint job, I've been re-decorating my room, for the last 4 years !   . I'm not quite Annie Leibovitz yet, so I'm still working on my photography skills.

Happy Sunday!

  3. Sunglasses~H and M
  4. Feather Necklace ~Primark
  5. Floral Tulip Skirt~ Zara
  6. Yellow Belt~ H and M

The sun is shining, I am smiling! it is such a beautiful day today don't you think.
