GOSH - the makeup range not a statement of fact.


Having used Bare Minerals on several occasions and never been impressed, my relationship with mineral powders has never been great. 
I did love the brand Laura Geller available from QVC and the results were so good, I used it for quite a while but as tends to happen with us fickle makeup folk, we move onto the next thing and products are forgotten. 

I chose the 004 shade which claimed to be natural - not sure on that as once on the skin (my skin), it looked rather fair.
Although a lightweight powder, it is far too easy to build the coverage to an obvious amount, caked is the word I would use. 
Once I got the application to a medium coverage level, I liked the finish, though the colour was still light. I did like the look on my face, other makeup worked well over the top. 
The most impressive aspect of this mineral loose powder is it's longevity, it truly lasted the day, I didn't move. I must add here that I didn't use a primer, so this really stood out.
I would just like to find a darker shade, a great reasonable priced foundation, which gives a great finish. 

The brush which isn't included (sadly) is a soft headed buffing brush, it holds rather a lot of powder, so only a small amount of powder is needed at a time. I found the brush a little soft, I prefer a tightly packed buffing brush but I do feel that this would probably apply far too much product. I feel the brush is over priced (£9.99), I am sure there are probably plenty of soft headed brushes which are a better priced.

The joy of a wander which is rewarded with a few little beauties that won't break the bank, is always a good day. 
Gosh is a brand that has been around a far while in Superdrug, I have had various bits from them and liked what I used. 
The eye shadow palette caught my eye and I just loved it's look, it almost didn't look real. I really loved the layout of this small plastic, nine shadow palette. Complete with all the colours I really love and a mirror in the lid, it had to be added to the basket. 

First impressions are very good, lovely packaging, great colours - I love purples. Pigment is a good likeness to the colour pans and the shadows are not too glittery. 
The palette once opened looks more expensive than it is.
A great size for carrying in a handbag, it won't take up much room at all.

This has proved to be an impressive addition to my palette range, the colours are highly pigmented and they are such beautiful colours which I am pleased to say last beautifully, there has been no creasing, the colours have stayed in place.
One of the lighter shades is far more shimmery than I expected but it does blend down to a softer finish.
For me this is the better palette for me, the others are very colourful which are not quite me but for a drugstore product these are worth a look.

The makeup world appears to be over-whelmed with big blushers, high end and drugstore. I am not a huge fan of following the pack but the colour of this caught my attention 04 Passion. 
First impressions have been really good, the packaging is simple, I like the colour flash at the bottom of the product. 
From initial swatches, the colour was exactly the same as the blush in the tube, it feels smooth and blends well. 

Another great product from Gosh, this really does pack a punch, the colour is strong and it is far too easy to apply too much to the cheeks, I have found using a brush and taking the colour from blush bullet and applying it to the cheeks works better for me. 
The colour is very smooth and blends easily over the cheeks, the colour is again impressive with it's longevity. I can not fault this product and will definitely be looking at the others in the range.
