There are certain beauty brands that you grow up with and there are some brands that always stick with you. For me, GOSH is definitely one of them. I pretty much grew up in Superdrug, I would spend ages looking at the make-up displays after school and I vividly remember being amazed by the GOSH eye shadow colours. Fast forward quite a few years and GOSH is still surprising me. Although my beauty knowledge has hopefully improved since my early teens, it is really lovely to watch a beauty brand grow and give you a feeling of nostalgia. I was lucky enough to be invited to their S/S 2017 launch but unfortunately I was stuck in a hospital bed but the lovely Sophie was kind enough to send me the new products to test.
After opening the package, I was instantly drawn to the GOSH Eye Xpression eyeshadow in the shade Urban Nature 003. The blue and green shades were certainly out of my comfort zone but the formula was very easy to blend and this makes the palette incredibly wearable. The lighter shade is perfect for highlighting your brow bone, nose and cupid's bow - this is definitely how I use every light coloured powder at the moment! Looking at the overall colour range of the collection and in particular, the palette, I think the shades are warm and earthy without being too harsh.
I actually filmed myself opening the products for a YouTube video, it is on my to-do list to edit this week and the GOSH eyeshadow swatches looked great on the camera. I found the GOSH Liquid Matte Lips really complemented the eyeliners and eyeshadow palette without looking too intense or bold. I loved the matte texture and the shades Pink Sorbet and Red Carpet are certainly everyday colours - very Kylie K inspired without the price tag!
Another product that really stood out to me from the collection is the GOSH CCC Stick in Medium 004, I have used quite a few contouring sticks but I found that the GOSH version is much easier to use. The thinner size is a simple to control compared to the thicker sticks that I have previously tried. I found the formula easy to blend once I had warmed the tip up but of course, the process is obviously a lot easier when you use a damp sponge.
The Lumidrops really do capture the essence of spring, the idea behind a liquid blusher creating a fresh pop of natural beauty is a perfect nod to the spring weather. This warm, bubble pink blusher really nails the spring theme on the head. If you have fair skin or if you want to get creative with your lips, the Lumidrops can create intense pigmentation. The swatch I have photographed on my hand is called Blush Rose. So there we have it, the Spring Gosh collection for 2017. What do you think of the new GOSH collection?
