NYX Cosmetics Matte Lipsticks + My Little Trick To Help Lipstick Stay On Longer

NYX Cosmetics have a wonderful range of Lipsticks at amazing prices as they are all under £10. I love how affordable the brand is and also the array of colours you can choose from. I always prefer Matte Lipsticks, and the NYX Matte Lipstick range is priced at £6.50. Despite being matte, the lipstick formula does not dry lips out and are highly pigmented so does not require reapplication very often.

Naturally however, after eating and drinking lipstick starts to fade so I do a little trick to make my lipstick stay on longer. I have written a post before about Gosh Velvet Touch Prime n’Set Primer and Mattifying Setting Powder

Gosh Velvet Touch Prime’n Set Primer and Mattifying Setting Powder

As I’ve mentioned before I have Oily skin. It’s tough as the day goes on to try and maintain a nice matte finish especially on particularly warm days. Thankfully there are now wonderful products out there called finishing/setting powders which are designed to help set your make up and complete your look. The powders are translucent so can be universally used by all skin tones and are meant to be light in texture just to set your make up to finish your look. I was out purchasing my favourite eyeliner from Gosh (mentioned in previous post https://southindianmakeup.wordpress.com/2015/09/09/gosh-cosmetics-velvet-touch-eye-liner-and-eye-shadows/) and came across a setting powder and thought I would give it a try. It is called Gosh Velvet Touch Prime’n Set Primer and Mattifying Setting powder and I purchased it for £6.99 but it is usually £9.99.

Even though its a two in one product I personally do not use it as a Primer and only use it as a setting powder. The pot comes with a sieve that you can rotate which is handy since it prevents spills or too much powder coming out.  So once I completed by normal foundation routine I lightly dipped by brush into the powder and blended it over my skin. It blended in easily with my skin without affecting my foundation or making it appear cakes or patchy and instead, gave me a matte polished look. Throughout the day I didn’t need to reapply my makeup and it controlled shine completely. I highly recommend this Setting/Finishing powder since its a great price and actually works well and lasts all day.

Gosh Cosmetics – Velvet Touch Eye Liner and Eye Shadows

A problem I’ve had with eye liner pencils is that other than Black, different colours don’t show up on my skin effectively. Well that was until I discovered Gosh cosmetics. They have a range of colours and when using the eye liner and eye shadow, the colour intensity is remarkable and so vibrant. The Velvet Touch eye liner is waterproof so lasts all day and the soft texture makes it easy to apply. The range is available in Superdrug. 

The Gosh Velvet Touch eye liner is priced at £4.99
