Gosh is one such brand which I completely trust upon, as it always delivers what it claims. After having a wonderful experience with the lip liner from the same Velvet Matt range of lip products, I decided to try on the lipsticks from the same range. There are 12 shades in the Gosh Velvet Touch Matt Lipstick line. I have two of those: 003 Antique and 002 Rose. Today, I am going to review Gosh Velvet Touch Matt Lipstick in the shade Antique 003.
GOSH Velvet Touch Lipstick Matt delivers long lasting pure colour with a matt finish. This creamy Lipstick ensures an easy outlined application, delivers an even, and long-lasting result with intense, pure matt color pay-off. Velvet Touch Lipstick is enriched with natural waxes and hyaluronic acid to moisturize, hydrate, smooth and sooth lips as well as to promote a pleasant wearing comfort throughout the day.

My Experience with Gosh Velvet Touch Matt Lipstick Antique 003:
Packaging: It comes in a black matte bullet form which is quite sturdy and appears far more expensive than it actually is. The black matte tube, with the name of the brand engraved onto the bullet, looks quite classy and elegant.
I absolutely love Gosh Velvet Touch lip liners. Just like the lip liner, this lipstick is also very moisturizing and soft to apply. Due to its soft and creamy texture, it glides onto your lips like a dream. If you feel like creating a ‘Kylie Jenner Lip’ look, the duo from the Velvet Matte range is so appropriate.
When you apply the lipstick, it instantly gives the velvet effect and has a good color payoff. The velvet and creamy consistency is recognizable as soon as you apply it. It stays on for long for about 6-7 hours without any touch ups. It fades slightly during meals, but that happens with most of the lipsticks.
I really like this lipstick for its color. It a perfect brown nude for fair to medium skin tones. It’s more like hot chocolate kind of brown, and I may be over-reacting, but it honestly smells like chocolate. I also think that this lipstick is quite similar to MAC’s ‘Velvet Teddy’ lipstick, just with a slightly darker/brown undertone.
Pros of Gosh Velvet Touch Matt Lipstick Antique 003:
• Gosh is a cruelty-free brand, which is a huge bonus
• Good pigmentation
• Long lasting
• Paraben free
• Brilliant colors to choose from
• Creamy texture makes the application easy
• Smells like chocolate
Cons of Gosh Velvet Touch Matt Lipstick Antique 003:
• Makes lips dry, so prior application of lip balm is required
• Unavailability in India
IMBB Rating: 4/5
