OK, so people who follow make-up vlogs and make-up gurus on youtube know the hype behind Gosh's famous lipstick in 'Darling'.
So as Gosh was on 3 for 2 I decided to pick this little lipstick up! Not being a fan of the Barry M 101, and failing to have success with other nude lipstick, I thought I would give this a go and maybe, just maybe I might have some luck with this formula and sheer colour.
Swatching the lipstick on the back of my hand I liked the texture, and the colour was quite neutral, sheer and not too over powering like the 101. Testing it on my lips however it was a whole different story. The same problem that I always have with nudes. The colour was much too lighter than my actual skin tone and made me look like a corpse. The consistency however was lovely and creamy, nourishing & moisturising, but the colour did nothing for me.
Now in the photos I'm about to show you, the colour doesn't look too bad, it looks quite pink, but in reality the colour is extremely pale, and almost white. The whole 'foundation over lips' look does not bode well with me.

Anyone else have the same issue with this lipstick and nudes? Any suggestions on what colours would suit me?
I feel like I'm missing out and I would love to be able to wear pale pinks, and nudes but I have no such luck in this field :(
Let me know your thoughts & suggestions!!
