GOSH Primer Plus Hydration, Velvet Touch Lip Liner, and Growth Mascara

If you've been reading my beauty posts recently then you may have noticed a certain brand making themselves more and more known in my make up bag. I am, of course, talking about GOSH, the Danish brand sold in Superdrug which I've been a fan of ever since I found their CC Cream Foundation, which is actually made in a shade pale enough for me.

Since then, I've been keen to try other products of theirs, so I thought I'd share my thoughts about what I've bought recently.

GOSH Primer Plus Hydration

Primer Plus Hydration, £13.99 for 30ml
A primer tailored for dry skin, the texture of this feels less like the silicone-y, balm-y primers I'm used to and more like a gel moisturiser. It feels so comfortable on skin, and creates a beautifully smooth base for foundation. I'd advise leaving it for a couple of minutes after application, almost to let it set. It works well with liquid foundation, but I've also used it with a mineral formula and had no trouble at all. Well worth a try if your skin is on the drier side.

Growth Mascara, £9.49 for 10ml

Now, I've said this before and I'll say it again, I've never noticed a change in the length of my lashes when I've used this. But it does create pretty, separated, fluttery lashes which are perfect for day but can be built up for night, and the brush is easy to work into the inner corners of the eye to capture every lash. I'm not a fan of brushes which are too bulky, so this is a bonus for me.

GOSH Velvet Touch Lip Liner in Angel Kiss

Velvet Touch Lip Liner in Angel Kiss, £4.99
Possibly my favourite lip liner at the moment, I've been wearing the Velvet Touch Lip Liner under lipstick and also on its own (although make sure your lips are in good condition!) It defines lips, feels smooth on application, and has good staying power too — in fact, I always notice that my lipstick lasts longer when I've remembered to use it, and I really like the peachy shade. A make up bag staple.

Have you tried any of these products? What should I try next? Let me know in the comments!
