Gosh is pretty affordable in DK, $17 is outrageous

You could try the new Revlon colorburst one in Soft Nude - it looks to be pretty similar and it's much cheaper.

^ Oh! Fantastic, thank you, Ganybelle. I have a few Ulta coupons here... may have to put them to good use.

The Ida - I know! The company must be based in Europe? At least not in the U.S. perhaps...

I think Gosh is Danish, actually. Hence the outrageous pricing

I wish we had Revlon!

You're welcome. I hope it works for you and thanks for the karma

I purchased Soft Nude... I'm such a sucker for possibly great nude lipsticks!

Well... it's not as light on my lips as I was hoping. I hate posting close-ups of my face, because there are so many imperfections in my skin (I'm not sure why I get red under my lips, but if anybody has a possible solution... I'd LOVE to know), but here I am wearing the lipstick. It looked lighter on some of the You Tube videos I watched.

^The red bit under your lip is caused by hormones. Concealer is the solution, I guess

I like more of a pinkish/coral neutral.

I don't like lipstick that turns my lips really beige or washed out with my skin.

That way I have some color without it competing with my eyes.

^I have pigmented lips so I know what you mean.

Still quite hard to kind something like that that isn't all out shiny or glossy and have great colour payoff.

Have you tried NARS barbarella? it's sheer and slightly shiny. I'm trying to find a matt or creme dupe for it.

Hormones? Oh no. I thought it was my toothpaste! Hah.

Lately I've been wearing MAC Syrup, and really love it. It's pink & similar to the natural color of my lips, 'but better,' as they say ...

I like Rimmel's Moisture Renew lipstick in Nude Delight.
The purple packaging is so cute too!
