GOSH Spring Summer 2014

Get Lippie-ers! I’m back back back. It’s been tough old game but
I’ve been sampling lots of new things recently. Not least the new
stuff from the GOSH Spring Summer range. I’ve been a GOSH fan for a
while, I think their Velvet Touch eyeliners are brilliant and easily
as good as my previous staple MAC Powerpoint at double the price. So,
I was excited to get stuck into my goody bag.

There are
lots of lovely new things in the range, the Lip Lacquers are cute and
would make sweet presents for a teen relative. They’re contained in
nail polish style bottles with an application wand in the lid. There
are a host of pleasing summery colours, including shimmery neutrals,
pinks, corals, and reds, with a not-too-glossy sheer shine.

lipsticks are also really good value, moisturising, and good colours,
particularly in the neutrals. They last very well too for a lipstick
at this price point. I’m a bright lipstick girl normally but I’ve
really taken to the Innocent, Nude and Sweetheart. They’re
flattering and go very well with a smudgy smoky eye.

Which leads
me onto the new Eyeshadow Forever Pencils. These are a great dupe for
the many more expensive eyeshadow pencils on the market like Smashbox
and Charlotte Tilbury. They twist up so there’s no need for
sharpening, and come in gorgeous blendable metallic shades which are
perfect for this season. After a minute or so they set and stay put
the whole day. I’ve been using Brown, Grey, and Beige most, the
latter being an excellent subtle pearly look particularly good on
paler skins.

The real
star of the show, however, is the Prime ‘n Set Primer and
Mattifying Setting Powder. I had never used a powder as a primer
before but this is a revelation. I’ve used lots of primers but none
worked as well as using a light touch of this powder before
foundation. It felt dry and comfortable all day even on a sweltering
London tube journey. It’s also a really good setting powder and
similar to the Nars Light Reflecting Setting Powder at a fraction of
the cost. Just saying. Here’s hoping GOSH bring out a pressed
version soon.

Lip Laquer is £5.99. GOSH Velvet Touch Lipstick is £6.49. GOSH
Eyeshadow Forever Pencils are £5.99. GOSH Prime ‘n Set Primer and
Mattifying Setting Powder is £9.99. They’re all on offer at
Superdrug with a few quid off at the moment. No pressure.
