GOSH Cosmetics SS14 New Launches!

On Tuesday (11th March) I attended the GOSH Cosmetics SS14 Press Event with the lovely Kimberley from Kimberleys Beauty Blog. 

I was really looking forward to this event because although I had seen some of the products in Superdrug, I don't really know much about the brand itself, so it was a great opportunity to go along and learn more about them.

As we arrived we were greeted by this amazing display of badges which spelt out GOSH SS14 (how clever) and Kimberely and I became a little bit too attached to it and well, we now own most of the badges from that board.  

Anyway, upon arrival, we were one of the first few to arrive and we were greeted with a lovely glass of bubbles and given a chance to swatch products, every beauty bloggers dream and we also got to have some make-overs to try out the products, ask questions and so on. 

I am really quite taken with two things that I saw at the event.  Firstly the nail polishes, when offered the chance to have a manicure I am not going to turn it down, I love having it done, my only problem was choosing between the shades:

All of these shades are fantastic and definitely perfect for Spring and Summer.  Whenever I come across new nail polishes I always gravitate towards darker colours and my final decision as to which colour to have rested on these two:

I ended up choosing the Frosted Plum version which can be seen below with and without a top coat.  I absolutely love this shade it is just so pretty and colourful.

We also got to play with the Prime 'N' Set - Primer and Mattifying Setting Powder which is said to transform the skin by visually minimising the pores, fine lines, redness and imperfections.  What I love about this primer is that it is a loose powder and you can wear it on its own, over foundation or apply it throughout the day to mop up that excess oil if you have unwanted shine.  It is both perfume and paraben free and when it was demonstrated on me I was really impressed with it.  It is available to buy now and you can find it HERE.

Then we had a play with the Lip Lacquers which are enriched with Argan Oil and Vitamin E, so as well as making your lips look fantastic they also look after and moisturise them.  They are available in 8 different colours which you can see HERE and below in the photo.  I tried the Lovely which is shade 002 and it is a beautiful nude with great staying power, at the event we were welcomed with a glass of bubbles and some amazing canapes and this lip lacquer didn't budge - impressive and all for £5.99.  There was also 8 new shades of the Velvet Touch Lipsticks that we also got to test and try and you have everything from
 nudes, pinks and reds. I opted for the nude, and I found it to be a really creamy texture. They all have added vitamin E and are priced at £5.99.

Eye Crayons are something I have become quite a fan of, they are easy to use, easy to apply, easy to make dramatic or be neutral everyday look and GOSH introduced me to their Forever Eyeshadow Stick which are highly pigmented crayons which you don't need to sharpen, just twist and they are waterproof too.

There are 8 shades available which are also now available HERE. What I liked about these was the ability to apply them quickly, easily and have a great colour not to mention that you can also use them as eyeliners, as I was shown.  The 8 shades available mean there is something for everyone, be it light copper, beige, plum and a very beautiful green, some of which are swatched below.

I had a fantastic time at this event, it was lovely to be able to swatch and try out new products and have and watch make-overs with them so that you could see how best to use them as well as being able to ask questions of the professionals present.  

You can find all of these products on the GOSH Cosmetics website and I also want to thank the lovely Daisy and the rest of the team for this amazing goody bag, I literally cannot wait to try these out.

Of course I also got to have some badges, you can never have enough and they all represent a product from the #SS14 range.
