Beauty Without Fuss

Tiny placeholding post ...

Just a heads up to let you know my URL has changed to  It won't make any difference to you guys, but it made my inner geek happy today!

Unlike GOSH Darling lipstick, which I bought this afternoon.  It makes me look like death.  DEATH, I tell you. Worse than DEATH, in fact, look:

(apologies for the quality of the appalling iPhone picture)

Hmn, actually, that picture makes it look almost acceptable!  Trust me, in the flesh, it looks like I've had a nasty accident in a lard'n'chalk factory. I think it's because my lips are quite highly pigmented naturally, and beige-ing them out just makes me look ill.  For me, this shade is instant zombification.  Inna stick. This is a very pale pinkish beige, and it's just far too cool a shade for me, I err on the side of caramel when it comes to "nude" shades. So, my search for the perfect nude lipstick goes on, can you make any recommendations? I will say this for it though, it feels more like a balm than a lipstick when you're wearing it.  This is based on approximately 45 seconds wear though.

If you'd like the lipstick - I know it's a really popular shade for other people - please let me know in the comments. I bought it today, applied it once with a lipbrush, and fell into instant HATE.  Doesn't happen often, but I always kick myself when it does.


  1. Hiya!

    You could give me the Gosh darling lipstick. I can think of a few things I could do with it.

    If you want, we can do a swap? :)


  2. I bought it the other day, thinking I'd hate it because I'm so pale but I'm quite surprised at how much I do actually like it.
