Last week I was invited to the W Hotel in Leicester Square to take a look at the New Spring/Summer 2015 range from GOSH Cosmetics. It's no secret that I love the brand so I was very excited to see what was in store.
After a little ride in the lift (I got off on the wrong floor) I was welcomed with a fruit cocktail which was extremely tasty and filled with crush ice which is perfect for me given my ice crunching obsession at the moment! I went and had my nails done and I was in my element!
After being spoilt for choice by the lovely new nail shades on offer I headed straight over to see the product of the night, the Primer Plus (£13.99) which claims to give porcelain perfect skin. It contains snow algae which is an anti again skincare ingredient typically found in snowy alpine regions and is the key to skins longevity. It gives the skin a new lease of life and blurs out fine lines and pores. Claiming to rejuvenate, protect and hydrate the skin it sounds like a great base for make up.
I can find primers a little bit confusing and I'm never sure what I should be looking for so it was really useful to hear their personal make-up artist talk us through all of the Primers Gosh have to offer.
The wall was covered in kisses where were encouraged to try out a shade of the
new Forever Lip Shine lipsticks (£6.99). With 10 shades to chose from it was tough to pick a favourite. The tip makes it really easy to line the lips with no effort at all and the smooth texture glides on easily leaving a long lasting colour with a great shine too. I was really impressed with how creamy and moisturising it was.
They've realsed 2 new mascaras. The first is the No Limit Lash Mascara (£7.49) which adds extra dimension and drama. The bristles have 9 combs abound the brush with two open areas to create a reservoir which ensures immediate volume and length without flaking or smudging. I think it's all about the brush when it comes to mascaras so I'm really excited to try this out.The second is the XTreme Volume and Length Mascara (8.49). This one offers you definition, length and volume. The triangular brush coats lashes with two formulas of mascara to give a pumped up false lash effect.
GOSH have always been great when it comes to long lasting eye liners. There's 9 shades of their new Xtreme Liquid Gel Eye Liners (5.99) to play with and they are really smudge proof! I swatched some on my hand on the night and they stayed put like new until I removed it before bed. It lasts for 13 hours and is perfume and paraben free. I love how this is a gel liner that doesn't come with a fiddly separate brush and pot. There are some really great colours to experiment with.
GOSH's Nail Lacquers (£3.99) seem to go a bit under the radar but they are really amazing - trust me. If you regularly read my blog you would have seen me mention their glitters several times in the past.
Their new shades have got me well and truly excited for spring with their chic white, pastels and a dusky purple. They have a new bigger brush which makes it super easy to apply -particularly for toenails! There's 7 new shades to brighten up our nails as the warmer weather attempts to make an appearance!
Eyeshadows are my weakness! So the new Eyelight Trios (£6.99) really got me excited. I love the shimmer to them. They come in 4 shades - a nude, brown, pink and blue. They are such lovely compacts with 3 eyeshadows to create a simple smokey eye. The top is a highlighter to light up the eyes, the middle shade is a glitter shadow for sparkling colour and the bottom is a darker shade with a satin texture to add depth and contour.It's really great to have the shades you need in one place so will be great to ave in a drawer at work or in your bag.
I am looking forward to trying this lot out. What would you like to see reviewed first?
