Glam Up with Gosh Makeup Part 2

Gosh Makeup Review Mineral Powder Shopping Haul contour kit foundation plus 008 honey gosh arabiaGood Morning Girls!!

So let’s just brighten up today with a beauty review! Gosh is recently all over the blogosphere and continuously praised by Dubai Beauty Gurus, the makeup line coming from Denmark limits the chemical ingredients and focuses more on a flawless smooth skin with Paraben-free, fragrance-free & cruelty-free ingredients.

In my last beauty post aka Glam Up with Gosh MakeUp I told you guys, I will be reviewing some awesome sauce Gosh Products (the products they used for my makeover), which Oh My Gosh are the best thing in the beauty world. If you’re looking to fill your makeup bag without breaking the bank – you should really pick up a few GOSH products.

“Did you know that GOSH were an almost completely vegan friendly beauty brand?”

GOSH Cosmetics Foundation Plus+ 008 GOLDEN TAN

The new highly concentrated foundation formula is designed to give full coverage and honestly, at first, I was quite disappointed with size but you’ll need only the tiniest amount to cover a full face. The formula is easily blendable and gives a dewy hydrating finish. With my dry skin going worse this summer, this formula with ingredients like hyaluronic acid and algae, basically allowed me to wear makeup without any flakiness and still had a nourishing long lasting finish.

GOSH Mineral Powder 006 HONEY

I hate wearing makeup during summers, it’s just not for me, but when I want to look somewhat presentable,  I typically reach for this baby. Now I never tried a mineral powder before and didn’t know what exactly it did. But this ‘powder‘ is so lightweight and as you start applying it to your skin it becomes almost cream like giving you that wonderfully smooth finish. – It’s actually pure magic 😝

Gosh Makeup Review Mineral Powder Shopping Haul contour kit foundation plus 008 honey gosh arabiaI really appreciate the packaging & seal, you can control how much powder comes out and even close it completely while traveling.

GOSH Contour’N Strobe Kit 002 MEDIUM

It’s quite a basic kit and perfect for beginners or girls looking for a natural everyday look. Plus the packaging is quite strong & handy, I have often thrown it in my purse when in a hurry and no scar whatsoever. The texture is extremely soft and blends on the skin.

Contour: It has two shades (shimmery & matte) I use the lighter shade on my forehead and nose while the darker one to define my cheekbones.
Blush: Often, I ignore applying a blush, in the fear of having pink clown cheeks but The dusty rose pink shade looks super natural on my skin tone.
Highlight: Going with the natural look, the highlight has just the right amount of shine. But if I do have time, I rather apply my liquid highlighters.

GOSH Giant Pro Double Liner 001 BLACK

Now the only reason, I picked up this black beauty was because the makeup artist used it so flawlessly on me during my makeover. But oh my god, though the formula is so good & rich in color, it’s so hard for me to apply it with accurate precision. Again, this product is quite traveling friendly, as you use the kajal as an eyeshadow for smokey eye and the liquid pencil liner for the perfect winged cat-eye (only if you can master the sorcery of jumbo pencils) 

GOSH Eyebrow Pencil 05 DARK BROWN

As I mentioned in my last post, I’m really bad when it comes to taming my eyebrows. But I’m quite surprised with this one, I usually use powder but frankly, a pencil is way easier and precise for a beginner like me. Since this eyebrow pencil is waterproof, it stays all day long and I don’t need a touch-up! Plus, Looks super natural and gives a soft look to the eyebrows.

Personally, in my opinion, the brand is worth every penny, from foundation to eye product one better than other. And if you are looking for a good skin base – premier, foundation, concealer & powder, Gosh maybe a bit pricey but the different textures & number of shades it has, you are bound to get the perfect one for you.

Note Cosmetics Launch Cove Beach Dubai Turkish Makeup Line Paraben Free BrandYet Again Lifestyle Gulf opens its doors to another Paraben free Make Up line, this time, all the way from Turkey. Beauty Lovers, Bloggers & Experts were super excited with the Grand Launch of Note Cosmetics known for its environment-friendly & natural ingredients. Also, their product and price range matches our budget friendly pocket.

A few days ago I attended the Lavish Launch of Note on a Runaway at Cove Beach, Jumeirah Beach Hotel Dubai with my partner in crime ‘RiyaHearts‘ as a part of their Top Notch Media. Note Cosmetics unleased 4 beautiful distinctive looks on the runway to showcase their versatile collection.

At the launch, we got a few goodies and I was quite impressed with the quality of the product & the packaging as well.

Long Wearing Lipstick in Shade 11 Funny Lips (AED 39)

The vibrant pink colour is perfect for summers and with Macadamia Oil & Shea Butter Extracts, the creamy texture is moisturising & comfortable on lips. The special formulation with palmitoleic acid prevents drying and cracking leaving a silky smooth finish. It has a butter cupcake scent as well – nothing too strong but it’s definitely there and I personally fancy it.

Creamy Lipstick in Shade 206 Fashion (AED 49)

Pencil Crayon Lippies are the new thing for lazy girls (no lip liner needed), the hydrating formula and gorgeous color payoff  leaves an intense bold satin red color in a single application. It didn’t bleed on the corners of the lips as some of the dark shades usually do.

Luminous Silk Quattro Eye Shadow in Shade 04 Pink SwatchLuminous Silk Quattro Eye Shadow in Shade 04 Pink (AED 54)

Enriched with Vitamin E, this eyeshadow quad is definitely a keeper. You can get both a subtle look and really smokey eye dramatic look with the beautiful combination of Shimmery Mauve, Champagne, Dusty Silver & Matte Purple. Each color blends away really well & soft texture feels amazingly comfortable on eyelids. The Shimmery Champagne shade gives a gorgeous pearly finish highlighting inner corner of your eyes.

Note Cosmetics Launch Cove Beach Dubai Turkish Makeup Line Paraben Free Brand  (1)Icon Nail Enamel in Shade 517 (AED 19)

I’m not a huge fan of Nail Polishes and often try to refrain myself from painted nails. But this shade is definitely a winner for bright summer days. Available in around 50 shades, Note Cosmetics has a lot to offer in the Nail Art Department.

All my pinks, coral & neutral lippies are stored for summers as the sunny weather really brings out the pigment.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick – 05 Ole Flamingo: Usually I stay miles away from Hot Pink lippies, but this soft matte deep pink gem is my exactly kinda fuchsia. The soft, velvety formula & incredibly intense pigmentation of Bourjois Lipsticks hits the top of my chart every single time. The sponge doe-foot applicator attached to it makes application super easy & precise. Unlike the others, this Velvet Matte range does not dry out the lips, or exaggerate cracked lips. The beauty of this shade is you can easily carry out for a daytime look as well, with a gentle swipe and build up the colour for a bold pretty pink for night time.

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss – 103: The colour is perfect during the day time, especially if you are looking up a daily wearable shade for the workplace. Finding a good neutral shade for Brown skin can be frustrating, the nude-pink matte lippies, is just enough pink to give a little pop of colour to my lips. The staying power is fairly decent, but you will need to reapply every 2-3 hours. As for the texture, initially, it is somewhat moisturising but leaves an unappealing grainy residue after few hours.

 

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss – 106: Though being from the same range, the texture is so different; it has a slightly satin finish contradicting the name itself. But the fun raspberry, pink-based red shade looks so attractive on any skin tone. It has a floral fruity scent, but this does not last more than a few minutes. You can experience minor bleeding if you do not use a good lip liner.

 

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream SMLC 11 Milan: First and foremost this particular colour looks different from person to person depending on the skin tone. On me, it is a bubblegum pink, with a bluish undertone. The scent of NYX matte liquid lipstick range is phenomenal, vanilla buttercream cupcake on your lips is like a dream come true. Out of the lot, these are super affordable, but usually, sell out pretty fast, so grab them straight away. The unique formula is creamy mousse-like however feels like a very light additional layer on your lips (the only drawback). I top this lippie with San Paulo for a slightly dark shade, which looks so good on Brown Indian Skin tone.

 

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream SMLC 08 San Paulo: Trying out new Nyx lip creams are always on my wishing list and this particular shade has been on my favourites list for a very long time mainly because it looks gorgeous when the rest of the face is with minimal or no make-up. The texture is like soft, light whipped cream and it feels like dessert on the lips! This product would certainly be worth repurchasing. The colour is a beautiful, warm plummy rose shade which is very rich and highly pigmented. Plus the price is right!

Until next time, Much Love

REVIEW BATTLE: GARNIER BB CREAM

blueeeBB creams have swiftly spread across all beauty market — from cult brands like Benefit to the best drugstore brands. And even us beauty bloggers (who are overly critical in their job) are always excited about the new releases in the bb cream product line. Garnier released their +SPF 50 UV Protection BB Cream in UAE in Summer 2015. I had high expectations from this particular product given how happy I was with Garnier’s Miracle Skin Perfector  which was my ultimate favourite product throughout the final year of my university.
