GOSH Light’N Shine Lip Glaze Review and Giveaway

Though I’m more of a lipstick girl these days, there will always be room in my heart and my handbag for a lovely tube of gloss – especially as we head into summer and, hopefully, holiday season! Along with suncream, tinted moisturiser and waterproof mascara, a nice sparkly gloss has always been a staple of my holiday kit so I was chuffed to receive a recent package with not one, not two but three gorgeous GOSH glosses from their lovely PR folks – and I’m sharing the love.  I’ve reviewed shade 04, Rosa, and read on to win either shade no 1, White,  a clear glaze with fine iridescent glitter,  or 03, Soft Rosa, which is a sparkly peachy pink.

Clockwise from top left: PR shot of the range - White is the first gloss pictured and Soft Rosa the third; shade 04, Rosa, in its packaging - peel off that sticker to reveal the handy little mirror; here's the light and mirror in all their glory; swatches and a close up of the brush applicator. Click on the image to enlarge.
Rosa is a pretty pink gloss with tiny little glitter particles, mostly purple and pink. It’s a high shine product with good staying power for a gloss, and despite being packed full of sparkle and shine it doesn’t feel sticky or gritty on the lips. There’s a pleasant, vanilla taste and scent and a nice brush applicator - but what really sets it apart is the clever packaging. An inbuilt light and mirror make this a very handy little gloss indeed, and perfect for popping (or in my case, jamming) into a clutch before a night on the tiles.

The light-up lid invites obvious comparisons with the Liparazzi glosses. I haven’t tried these, but they’re currently €18.37 on asos so, at about €12.99 in
Ireland, the GOSH lip glazes seem like a better value proposition. There are 6 shades which you can pick up at Superdrug or A-wear or, of course, you can enter my little giveaway to win one of the two shades described above. Just leave a comment below to say which one you’d prefer, and sign up to get fluff and fripperies by email (there’s a little box up there on the right hand side of the blog). Easy peasy! Now what are you waiting for?

Check out GOSH on Facebook for giveaways, product news and more.  And sure while you’re at it, fluff and fripperies is on Facebook an’ all ;)

Am putting my name in for the 03 Rosa gloss. It looks like a nice summery colour and I'm totally sold on the mirror and light!

Have been super busy so missing my fluffy fix (and work computer won't display for some reason - its like it knows what I'm doing is not 'technically' considered work). Anyway, these sound great, the mirror is a great thing. And much as I love my CD lippy and use it frequently, I also remain a gloss girl at heart. Giveaway regardless I will be inspecting Scottish Superdrug stores to see if they stock these lovely things. :)
