I always get very excited when brands bring out their new season products, especially when it’s a brand I’ve loved for a while. The very first item of makeup I bought from GOSH was a clear eyebrow gel back in 2015. Back then I thought they were a relatively new company, so imagine my surprise when I discovered GOSH has been around since 1945!

I was over the moon when GOSH emailed me to invite me to the launch of their new AW17 collection up in London, I would’ve absolutely loved to have gone but I sadly I couldn’t make it that evening. GOSH* very kindly sent me out some of their new products to try, how lovely is that?

It would have been amazing to see some of the other bloggers I know there too, like Holly (from Golly Miss Holly) and Tania (from When Tania Talks), but hey, there’s always next time!

The Strobe ‘N Glow Kit in 002 Blush has a gorgeous matte blush, two highlighting blushers and a highlighter, all four shades are stunning and the powder is incredibly soft.

GOSH also have a Strobe ‘N Glow Kit 001 Highlight, which has three stunning shades for bronzing and a highlighter. If that’s as amazing as the blush kit then I’ll be adding that to my basket next time I’m in Superdrug!

The Mix and Fix Blender brush is perfect for mixing liquid foundation with concealer or liquid highlighter such as GOSH Lumi Drops. The brush is so soft and applied my makeup evenly, without leaving any streaky lines. It’s 100% synthetic and suitable for vegans.

If you love GOSH Lumi Drops as much as I do, then you’ll be pleased to know there are two new shades, Gold and Rose Gold (definitely need that one in my life!) These liquid highlighters can be used on bare skin, over the top of your foundation or just on certain areas of your face to give a healthy glow.

I was particularly interested in trying out the Prime ‘N Set Primer and Mattifying Powder in Banana. You can use it under your makeup as a primer help minimize pores, fine lines and redness. The powder can also be used to set your makeup in place and help control  shine to create a flawless look. It’s so incredibly lightweight that it didn’t feel like I was wearing any powder at all.

GOSH Colour Corrector Kit has 5 different shades for high coverage of any problems areas, a concealer (for small imperfections), Yellow (for under eye circles), Green (to cover any red patches), Purple (for any yellow tones) and Peach (for brightening under the eye). It’s a super creamy consistency which blends in beautifully, I found it best to apply a primer first as this stops the corrector from creasing.

The Lift and Highlight 2 in 1 pencil helps to define, lift and highlight, one end is matte and the other is a shimmery shade. It’s perfect for under your eye brow, the inner corner of your eyes and your cupids bow. Again, it’s a thick creamy formula that blends in easily using your finger tips. The shimmer shade is absolutely stunning and certainly gave me a more “wide awake” look!

Primer Plus+ is pretty amazing, it made my skin feel extremely soft and gave my complexion such a healthy glow. The primer is super lightweight and it’s a pale nude shade when you first apply but quickly adapts to most skin tones. It contains oak extract, plus it’s anti pollution and is perfume free, which is great for my sensitive skin.

My Favourite Mascara gives your lashes a wonderful, natural, everyday look. The large fibre brush helps to lengthen and define each lash, yet adding loads of volume without going all clumpy. It’s smudge proof, it lasted all day and still looked amazing when I got home, even after my eyes were watering thanks to hay fever!

These products are all available from Superdrug, either in store or online, if you fancy getting your hands on GOSH’s new collection!

Have you bought anything from the new collection? What would be your favourite item?

We’re round to another monthly favourites post again and this month I have been trying a number of new products, luckily most of them I’ve really loved using. May was also a great month for me as I had my cousin come to stay for a long weekend, we had a fantastic time and generally enjoyed each other’s company. As much as I love her I almost feel the need to put my makeup and wardrobe under lock and key so she doesn’t help herself to my stuff without asking!

As we suddenly had a mini heatwave in the UK I wanted a body spray that would freshen me up during the day and still smell divine, not a heavy perfume. Superdrug have introduced their Layering Lab range with 6 options to choose from. You can spray two of the scents at once to create your own unique smell or just wear one on it’s own. After smelling all of them I decided to opt for Fresh which has a delicious fruity, citrus smell and it’s such a bargain at only £2.99 that I will probably purchase one of the other scents too. I’ve been wearing it almost every day and carrying in my bag for when I need to freshen up.

After being wrapped up in thick woollies for so many months, I wanted to give my body some pampering. I always suffer from dry skin on my elbows, knees and ankles but this Scrub Love Detoxifying Activated Charcoal Body Scrub from scrublove.com has really help sort those areas out.  It smells so different to what I’m used to with body scrubs, but it made my skin feel so soft and hydrated. I love that it’s 100% natural ingredients, this one contains Avocado and Aloe Vera, which are both great for dry, sensitive skin.

Who doesn’t love a good face mask as part of there weekly skincare routine. I’ve had a few break outs around my nose, chin and across my forehead, I put it down to getting hot and sweaty during the warmer weather. While I was on the Lush store stocking up on bath bombs I came across this Cupcake Mask, I think it was the name that caught my eye rather than the actual product at first because it’s actually meant for oily skin. However after trying it for a few times, I couldn’t help fall in love with it. I’ve only been applying it to areas on my skin that have had problems and it’s pretty much sorted them out. Plus it smells amazing, I had to try not to eat it!

If you’re like me and suffer from dry flaky lips occasionaly then you need to try Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub. You simply apply with your finger and gently rub it in and it leaves your lips feeling wonderfully soft and it’s completely removed any dead skin, I then just apply my favourite lip balm. It smells incredible and leaves your lips with a gorgeous sweet taste afterwards. I’ve been wearing a lot of liquid lipsticks lately and some of them can really dry out my lips, but this gorgeous scrub has made my lips feel so smooth and ready to apply whatever lip colour I’ve chosen that day.

There were some days I’ve not wanted to wear much makeup but still wanted to have a natural, summer glow. I’ve loved using these No7 Perfectly Bronzed Bronzing Pearls to give my face a nice healthy, holiday look. I use a medium sized makeup brush, swirl it over the pearls and apply to areas of my face where I want it to look as though I’ve been out in the sun. It is highly pigmented so you only need to apply a small amount if you’re pale like me. I can see I’ll be using these a lot over the coming months.

There had to be a liquid lipstick in here somewhere, didn’t there? I’ve not used many GOSH products before but after discovering I had some points on my Superdrug card I thought I’d treat myself to these gorgeous items. The Liquid Matte Me Lips is a stunning pink in shade Berry Me (no 006) and feels so lovely to wear, it’s not drying and stays on pretty much all day, The eyeshadow  is beautiful, this one is in Back To Nature (001) which has four gorgeous earthy toned shadows and is perfect for an every day look, I absolutely loved wearing all four shades.

Honestly, I cannot resist Jemma’s shop on Etsy that I have so many of her prints all over my office wall. These two stunning  copper quotes help keep me motivated every time I’ve a day when I feel I can’t achieve what I’ve set out to do, I’ve had a lot of moments like that this past month, maybe it’s the change in the weather! Anyway, I would loved to have featured all of the things I’ve had from Jemma in this month’s favourite but we’d be here all day. I can’t recommend her enough for prints, notebooks, cute trinkets and stationery. You really should have a look for yourself.

Last, but not least, this has been my favourite outfit during May. This short sleeved, knee length floral dress from Dorothy Perkins has been perfect for the gorgeous weather. It’s fitted around the top half and flares out at the waist and made of soft jersey material. I’ve worn the dress with a pair of sandals and this wonderful pinky, nude and black tote bag I got on a recent trip to Primark. The bag has two grab handles with a longer strap and inside there is one larger compartment with two zipped sections. This bag goes with so many other outfits too. On chillier days I’ve loved wearing my faithful denim jacket from GAP. It’s last years but I still get a lot of wear out of it and it just looked lovely with this dress as well as so many other items in my wardrobe this season.
