Review: Gosh LightN' Shine Lip Glaze

Hi everyone :)

I was kindly sent this product by GOSH as I'd informed them about a less than satisfactory GOSH cosmetics stand in a store at home. There's nothing more annoying than going to a store and finding the stand in a mess with lots of items missing so you couldn't get what you wanted. Alas, the lovely person that emailed me back offered to send me a GOSH item as thank you. A few days later I received a LightN' Shine Lip Glaze in shade 03, which according to the GOSH website is 'Soft Rosa'.

The mirror is wide enough to see your lips - useful!

Check out the brightness of the lights!

About the product

GOSH say: This revolutionary new product is a dream of a lip gloss. It has a fantastic softening and pleasant texture with a super "high shine" finish. The packaging is no less than fantastic - even in the dark, the lip glaze can be applied, as the built-in mirror and light make this possible. Excellent for an evening out on the town. A super combination of colours and pigments gives the lips depth and fullness. Ultra high shine finish. Makes lips seductively sensual. Softens lips.

I say: I'd agree with everything GOSH say about this product. I absolutely love it. The lip gloss is great because it's non sticky (YAY!), and despite containing really tiny glitter, it doesn't feel gritty. Win! The colour is gorgeous as it's not too pink and it has a great shine. I've found that it also has a decent staying power, so I've only had to reapply after eating or drinking. I've not used it on my bare lips as of yet, I usually use it on top of either lip balm or lipstick so I can't verify the claims that it softens lips. In relation to the packaging, it really is fantastic. It has a mirror on the side and two LED lights inside the lid which accurately highlight your lips when applying. Perfect for applying on the run, on a night out, or on public transport.

DISCLAIMER: I was sent this product for free by GOSH but this was not for review purposes. Regardless, the fact that I received this item for free has not influenced my review in any way.
