GOSH Cosmetics SS13 Collection

Good evening beauty seekers!
Tonight i want to share with you some exciting NEW products by drugstore heavyweights GOSH cosmetics. I attended their event this week for the launch of their special releases for Spring/Summer '13, which will be released in stores from 13th March. It was a fab night with food, wine and enough makeup to take a bath in! It was EVERYWHERE! Kid in a candy store or WHAT?! 

 (Check out Grace from allthatslap photobombing me in the mirror!!)

We were basically let loose around the room to check out and play with all the gorgeous makeup! There were all kinds of products on display! There was a fantastic makeup artist on hand as well to make us all look fabulous. It would have been so easy to get carried away with all the shadow palettes, blushes and lipsticks that were scattered around, but what we were REALLY there to celebrate were THESE little beauties....

The GOSH SS13 Collection consists of the following...

6 Special Edition Nail Polish Shades
BB Skin Perfecting Kit
Velvet Touch Eyeliner in 2 New Colours
The Ultimate Eyeliner - With a Twist
Growth Mascara and Serum

BB Skin Perfecting Kit* - £9.99
This little compact actually comes in 2 shades: Light and Medium. The one pictured is Medium (my housemate promptly pinched the Light one almost as soon as i got it home so it was not available for photos haha). The palette consists of two shades of creamy concealer and a highlight shade to achieve a flawless face. The lighter concealer is designed to brighten and conceal the under-eye area while the darker is intended to cover up blemishes. The highlighter, which i would apply with my fingers, is great for dabbing over the cheekbones and collarbone or as a brow highlight. Such a handy little compact for carrying around. The mirror is also a great size!

Nail Lacquer - 6 Special Edition Colours* - £4.99 each
I'm a newbie to GOSH nail polishes but, given my recent obsession with my nails, i actually SQUEE'd a little bit when i opened the bag to find these! I'm planning a separate post to follow tomorrow dedicated to these little beauties so i won't say too much here other than the fact that, after an initial play, i am very impressed!!
I'll be comin' at ya with swatches and all the shade names tomorrow...

Growth Mascara* (£8.49) and Serum* (£14.99)
I am MEGA excited about these products! Finally, a drugstore alternative to all those ridiculously pricey lash treatments! Both contain an active growth complex called SymPeptide XLash and promise visible results after just 2 weeks, which is a relatively short time frame for a lash treatment. I've never actually seen a mascara that claims to promote growth so i am very interested to see how the products work together and what results they might produce. I've already started a trial of both products simultaneously so i'll report back in a couple of weeks! 

The Ultimate Eyeliner* - (£5.99)
01 Back in Black
02 Raw Grey
05 Kind of Blue
These 3 brand new shades are reminiscent of the Avon Glimmersticks (which i have always been a fan of) and twist up without the need for sharpening, allowing for precise application. The product itself goes on very smoothly and gives a great colour payoff. The major bonus with these liners is the smudger on the other end of the pencil which can be used to create a soft smokey effect as well as a precise line. It's long wearing and 'Back in Black' lasted all day on me yesterday! Back in Black and Raw Grey are mostly matte, while Kind of Blue has a slight shimmer to it. 

Velvet Touch Eyeliner* - £4.99
020 Fashionista
021 Renaissance Gold
GOSH have also added 2 new shades of their Velvet Touch liners. These give a thicker line than the Ultimate Eyeliner and are sharpened manually, but are still velvety soft and smooth to apply and contain vitamin E and Jojoba oil. They are also waterproof. 'Fashionista' is a pretty deep blue with a hint of sparkle while 'Renaissance Gold' gives a beautiful, almost liquid, metallic gold effect and will be gorgeous with bronzed summer skin

Top Row L-R - Velvet Touch Eyeliner: Renaissance Gold, Fashionista
Bottom Row L-R - Ultimate Eyeliner: Kind of Blue, Raw Grey, Back in Black

I reckon GOSH have played a blinder for the new season and i look forward to wearing all of these shades in the warmer months which i really hope will be coming along very soon and i'm very excited to report back on how the Lash serum performs! I'll see you again tomorrow with more details and swatches for the beautiful nail colours!

These products will be available from 13th March and can be found in selected Superdrug Stores as well as Superdrug online. 

What are your favourite GOSH products?? Will you be rushing out to pick up the new SS13 shades?? Do you fancy the Lash Serum?? 



  1. Makeup heaven or what?!

    Wow... I think those nail polishes will prove popular this season, I'm already in love! The pink glitter nail polish reminds me of Barry M Rose Quartz Glitter, do you think?

    1. I did think the same initially but the glitters in the GOSH one look a lot bigger. They are all gorgeous shades. Can't wait to get swatching tomorrow xx

  2. Great event write-up!! Love Grace in that picture!! X

    1. Haha me too! I didn't even notice her in there until I was editing the post LOL. Thanks Hun! Xxxxxx

  3. Wow, what a stash! I loooooove those nail polishes. I really like the nude and light blue. Looking forward to your next post with swatches and names. Please tell me they have super cute polishe names too?


  4. With all my hoards of makeup I don't have anything from gosh, that's gotta change! X

    1. I didn't either until this week... Apart from the odd eye pencil. I think it's mostly because they're at the higher end of drugstore price-wise and I always want a bargain but after playing with this lot I can say its worth it! X
