Recently, the lovely Sophie from Gobsmacked Lipsticks sent me one of her lipsticks to try, and boy am I impressed! Gobsmacked is a new brand, launching in August 2017 and they are all about making vegan lipsticks that don’t contain any nasty and potentially dangerous chemicals. I used to think that eco-friendly lipsticks/cosmetics meant that the final product would suffer in quality, but this lipstick has proved me so wrong; if anything, it has more staying power than lipsticks I usually use such as Rimmel London ones or Collection ones!
As you can see, the packaging looks very luxurious, and the gold band compliments the bamboo tube really nicely. The lid fits onto the base of the lipstick really nicely, and pulls off really smoothly which is always something I look for in a lipstick; quality packaging is so important! The tube feels really sturdy and nice to hold.
The formula is amazing, it’s very smooth and doesn’t drag on your lips – it glides really nicely. It smells divine, and is very moisturising all the while having a demi-matte type finish. It’s very pigmented and has an amazing hold, it lasts me a whole day at school easily.
The shade is so nice. It looks very mauvey purple, but it’s a very wearable dark nude which I’m really enjoying wearing whilst we’re on the run up to spring, although it does seem like we are in summer today; it’s been 27 degrees in my garden (i’m just a little burnt!).
You should definitely check out these lipsticks when they’re all up and running in August – I’m positive everyone will love these because there really is a shade for everyone!
P.S – Thank you so much for 300 followers going on for 310! What should I do to celebrate, make sure to leave me a comment xx!
