Golly GOSH

As high street makeup brands go, GOSH is one that I don’t have much experience of. It’s exclusive to Superdrug in the UK and made a splash when it launched a few years ago, but it seems to have gone off my radar since then. However, they appear to be launching some pretty cool products of late and these shimmer bricks are the tip of the iceberg. There are two shades (pink and bronze) which each have five individual shades of blush/bronze within each brick of colour. I love bronzers like this as it gives you a more subtle result than laying on a flat brown shade, as well as helping to sculpt thanks to the lighter hues complementing the darker ones.

They’re very subtle in colour, perfect for those of us that want a delicate sunkissed glow or to enhance a dull complexion. The bricks are very shimmery though, so if you’re not a fan of sparkles you may want to stay away; the result isn’t too bad in daylight, but in the evening you may blind someone with a big chunk of glitter over dinner…. Never a good thing. To get a perfect result, use a big powder brush and sweep over the brick using circular movements, applying to the cheeks in an upwards motion towards the edge of your face. You’ll be left with a radiant glow and sparkles Barbie would be jealous of.

Available online and in store, exclusive to Superdrug, priced £8.17 each.

    I will have to take a look at this next time I'm in town. I've been wanting a Bobbi Brown shimmer brick but it's way out my budget just now, but this I could do 🙂

    I'll be honest and say I always look at GOSH but never buy any. These do look good, I think I might have to give them a go – I do like the bronze but the pink has an edge too it, Mel xxxx

    I have to admit I have never tried GOSH but I am quite intrigued by this especially as I am on a tight budget at the moment. I am mixed rate and I like to use these type of products to give my skin a bit of an uplift in the day when my skin is looking a bit dull.Thanks for the heads up, will definitely look out for it when I'm in superdrug
