There’s a huge buzz in the makeup world, with two international make brands that have just recently launched in South Africa.
One of these brands is GOSH Cosmetics. GOSH Cosmetics is a Danish brand that has been around for over 25 years and available in over 78 countries. Known for it’s colourful, edgy and innovative products, the GOSH Cosmetics range is full of fun and inspiration.
Comprising of a full range of products, GOSH Cosmetics includes everything from makeup to skin care, nail polishes to fragrances, to professional hair care as well as a full range of bronzing and self tanning products.
While you will definitely hear more about GOSH Cosmetics on StyleScoop (we love the range), here’s my take on just some of the goodies I got to try out right now.
Natural Touch Foundation (R180)
This is a great foundation for summer. While it’s rich and creamy, it feels super light on the skin. It’s got an SPF of 8 and coloured with silicon mineral pigments that give your skin a natural finished tone.
Coverage wise, I found it okay for everyday. It’s fairly long lasting and definitely feels like you’ve got nothing on. It’s great for days when you want to look polished, but not look as though you’re wearing any makeup.
Velvet Touch Lipstick (R115)
Ok this is where I got hooked on the brand! Their’ Velvet Touch lipstick is simply amazing and of all the lipsticks I own, this one probably stays on the longest, while still giving my lips a natural boost of colour. Even after lunch and a cup of coffee, I still had colour on my lips, which for me, is more than I can say for any other lipstick product!
Packed with a high concentration of pigment – that you can actually see (sparkling on the lipstick), these give you that intense, long lasting colour. The colour range also looks sensational! I got to sample Lady Luck – a beautiful coral that I am just in love with! Furthermore, this lipstick also nourishes the lips with a combination of vegetables oils and Vitamin E. I would definitely give it a 10/10!
Lip Marker Pen
Another top class product! The GOSH Cosmetics Lip Marker Pen is a great way to give your lips intense colour and keep it locked in! It’s like a marker pen that you use on your lips instead of liner (and lipstick too). I much prefer using this type of product as apposed to a liner as I feel it looks more natural. It’s also a great product to use on it’s own to create your lip colour or use it as a long lasting base for your lipstick application.
This would make a great tool to help your create those “ombre” lips that are so hot in all the fashion magazines! I got to sample Soft Rose, a beautiful, natural looking colour!
Intense Eye Liner Pen
While this product is great, it didn’t blow me away like the other products I got to sample from the GOSH range. Partly because there are a lot of great liners like this around and partly because I prefer to use a brush and gel liner to create defined lines as apposed to a pen-type applicator.
Regardless, it’s still a great smudge proof eyeliner that allows you to define your eyes. What makes it great I suppose is the fact that it’s perfume and paraben free and also water based, so if you suffer from sensitive eyes, perhaps this would be the ideal product for you to try.
Natural Blush (R115)
The blush is soft and blends beautifully into the skin. It’s saturated with micro-fine colour particles that help to create a natural look on the skin. A little bit of product goes a long way. Sadly my sample broke on it’s way to me, so I can’t tell you if there is or isn’t fall out when applying the product.
All in all, I am really impressed with this range of cosmetics! They are great quality and not too pricey.
GOSH cosmetics is exclusive to Edgars and available at selected Edgars & Red Square stores.
