An Exciting New Range From Superdrug

If you're a regular reader of Mammafulzo, you will already be aware that Superdrug are my favourite high street online and in store place to buy beauty products, and if you watch my Instagram live  you'll have recently seen the biggest Superdrug haul ever, which included a whole host of beauty products and accessories stored in one of the huge laundry sized supermarket recyclable bags, yes there was that much of it, so it's safe to say, I love me some Superdrug. 

I recently received a parcel from my postman which isn't anything out of the ordinary as a blogger, but what was out of the ordinary was that when the postman was handing the parcels to Simon, he said "I don't know what's in there but it smells amazing" and he was absolutely right, one of the parcels smelled incredible. 

When I opened the parcel I squealed with delight because it contained products from the BRAND NEW RANGE from Superdrug. Superdrug have expanded their Treat Me range to include body butters and body sorbets all in the same incredible scents that their shower and bath soaks are available in and I had 2 of the body sorbets and 2 of the body butters to try, I was super happy and couldn't wait to share them with you. 

In my most recent Superdrug haul here on my blog, you will have seen me raving about the Treat Me Avocado & Strawberry Shower & Bath Soak £2.99 which I adore! 

The scents available in the new Treat Me range are -

• Salted Caramel
• Mango & Coconut
• Rhubarb & Custard
• Raspberry & Vanilla
• Honey & Ginger
• Avocado & Strawberry 

I have the body sorbet in the scents Mango & Coconut and Rhubarb & Custard and the body butter in the scents Raspberry & Vanilla and Salted Caramel and all of them smell absolutely incredible. 

Superdrug Treat Me Body Sorbet -£2.99

The sorbets come in a tube with a snap off cap and the sorbet squeezes out with ease, the packaging is really nice, bright and colourful and has the scent details and image on the front and the instructions and a little about the sorbet on the back with ingredients also. 

The new Treat Me Body Sorbets smell amazing, out of the 2 I have, my favourite is the Mango & Coconut but Simon prefers the Rhubarb & Custard which smells exactly like the sweeties of the same name, the scent transports me back to my childhood instantly. The Mango & Coconut is as you would imagine a lovely fruity scent a holiday scent as we would say in our house, both smell good enough to eat, but make sure you don't do that. 

The body sorbets have a gel like feel to them and they rub into the skin beautifully, they don't absorb instantly but don't take an age to dry like some body products, they leave my skin feeling lovely and hydrated and feel really refreshing on the skin, and as it says in the instructions on the back of the tube, the body sorbets would be lovely if stored in the fridge for a few hours before using, especially if you are on holiday.

Superdrug Treat Me Body Butter - £2.99

The body butter comes in a good sized round tub with a screw off lid, the lid has a large label on with the scent name and on the bottom of the tub is a little about the product, instructions for how to use the body butter and the ingredient list. 

Choosing between the scents was a hard choice but I think the Raspberry & Vanilla wins for me with the Salted Caramel being Simons favourite of the 2. The body butters have a lovely rich consistency as you would expect with a body butter, they apply well and rub into the skin beautifully, I especially concentrate on any dry areas like my knees and ankles and my skin is left feeling lovely and soft and smelling incredible, the body butter doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy and although it does take longer to dry than the body sorbet it isn't anything I can't cope with and it is standard for a body butter. 

We always take body butter away on holiday with us as it is ideal to use after a day in the sun when your skin can be left feeling dehydrated, and that is exactly what I will be doing with these, they have already been put with our holiday toiletries along with the body sorbets as they will both be perfect to use on holiday. 

Both the body sorbet and body butters are a brilliant price at just £2.99, I would have expected to pay much more than that, I have been buying body butter for many years and always pay a lot more so it is so nice to know that from now on I can buy the Treat Me body butter and body sorbet and have incredible products at an affordable price, in fact all the products including the Treat Me Shower & Bath Soak are £2.99. 

Treat Me is the perfect name for this range as the products really are a treat to use and leave the skin feeling a treat too. I have thoroughly enjoyed trying out both the sorbet and the body butter and am really sad that I couldn't continue using them but they have been put away and will be put to good use by us all when we go away on holiday, we also have some shower and bath soak in Avocado & Strawberry to take with us so we are going to smell good enough to eat.

All the products in the Superdrug Treat Me range including the brand new body butter and body sorbets are £2.99 and are available this August in store and online at Superdrug, and like everything included in the Treat Me range, the new products carry the leaping bunny symbol of Cruelty Free International, are vegan and carry the Superdrug 100% Happiness Money Back Guarantee. 

Have you tried the Treat Me Shower & Bath Soak? If so which is your favourite scent? And which of the body butters and body sorbets do you like the sound of the most? I'd love you to share your thoughts with me in the comments below.

Primark Launches Scunci's Hero Hair Range

You may remember me reviewing some hair accessories from the brand Scunci a little while ago, well this month Primark are launching an exclusive Scunci Hero Hair Range across their stores nationwide. There is a wide range of hair accessories, brushes and tools and Scunci claims they are the "everyday hair accessories you can't and shouldn't live without". 

I was kindly sent 3 of the items from the range to share with you and so far I am loving what I have tried.  Having long straight hair, I welcome any sort of hair accessories and tools that mean I can try something new since my hair is mostly in a scruffy bun on top of my head and if not it's just down and straight, not exactly exciting I know. 

Scunci Silicone Black & Clear Elastics - 16 pack - £2.50

These hair elastics are incredible, I have some of the clear ones already and I can honestly say, they are the best hair ties I have ever tried, never in this world did I ever think I'd rave about a hair tie, but there you go, I have. They keep my hair in place all day and if I go to bed with my hair up as I mostly do, it is still up the morning after, it isn't as neat, but it is still up in the same position it was in when I went to bed. These really are the best hair ties ever and if you wear your hair up and don't want it to move, you need these in your life. 

Scunci Ponytail Boost Tool - £4.00 

I have very thin hair so this sounds brilliant for me, I haven't been able to try this as yet as I am unable to do my own hair so once one of my girls can help, I will be giving this a try. It looks really good though and I have often wondered how people manage to get their hair into a ponytail with the volume and lift like the Ponytail Boost gives, so now I will be able to rock that look too. 

The Ponytail Boost comes with -

• A Ponytail Boost Tool
• A No Damage Elastic
• A Bow Elastic 

On the back of the box there are instructions to show you how to use the Ponytail Boost. 

I'm not sure I would use the bow elastic and you don't have to either, but it's there if you want to use it. 

Scunci Fast Dry Paddle Brush - £4.00

The Fast Dry Paddle Brush has a soft rubber touch feel so it is brilliant for gripping when drying the hair, Simon struggles to brush my hair with a brush whilst drying my hair with the hair dryer and often he drops the brush, so this rubber finish to the brush will hopefully help with that. The brush is bright pink which is obviously a winner with me as I love pink, the brush also has little pink tips on the end of each bristle and a really pretty flower design on the brush head which I didn't notice at first glance but it is really pretty and adds a nice touch.  

The brush is a fast dry brush and claims to dry the hair faster because it has 50% more airflow, and I'm pleased to say, it does. I honestly thought that it would be a bit of a gimmick but my hair dries much faster when the girls use this brush which is brilliant. The brush also brushes through my hair with ease and is great for when my hair is wet and tangled. I have only used it a couple of times as it has been packed away with the things I am taking on holiday, but it's such a great brush, I am not leaving it behind. 

The whole Scunci Hero Hair Range is brilliant and there are some really great products included in the collection and all the brushes are pink so suit me down to the ground. If you would like to see which other brushes, accessories and tools are available, head down to your local Primark as the range is available in stores nationwide. 

Have you seen the Scunci Hero Hair Range in your local Primark yet? Have you tried anything from the range or anything else from Scuni? Let me know in the comments below.

Caolion Pore Tightening Day And Night Glowing Duo

Caolion Pore Tightening Day And Night Glowing Duo

Over the last few months I have heard more and more about Korean beauty products and in particular, skincare products but I hadn't ever tried any Korean products myself. When the Caolion Pore Tightening Day And Night Glowing Duo £30 arrived I was really excited to try it but at the time I was trying out some more skincare to review on my blog so unfortunately I had to wait to try it. 

Over the last few weeks I have been using the Caolion Glowing Duo and have been using it day and night and since I have well and truly popped my Korean skincare cherry, I thought it was time I let you know how I've been getting on. 


The founder of Caolion Cosmetics is Jinyoung Joo who suffered terribly with sensitive skin and had tried every recommended product on the market for a solution but still suffered terribly with her skin. Jinyoung was a woman with extremely sensitive skin who created gentle cosmetic products by tasting each product because she thought that if a cosmetic product could be edible, those with the same skincare concerns as hers would be able to use the product without concern. While other brands were concentrating on fragrance, application and usage, Caolion Cosmetics excluded irritable chemicals used for instant effects and focused on essential moisture and nutrition that promote natural beauty and health of the skin.  

Jinyoung designed skincare even for the most sensitive skin like hers, her artisanship and efforts, even her tasting products, for creating the products was the new beginning of Caolion Cosmetics and Korea's first pure hypoallergenic cosmetics. 

Caolion Pore Tightening Day And Night Glowing Duo


Caolion's Day & Night Glowing Duo's unique light texture quickly absorbs into the skin, leaving skin calm and moisturised throughout the day.

Cleanses and tightens pore for anti-ageing

DAY - For natural luminous skin benefit.
NIGHT - Pore tightening sleeping mask tightens pores and help to get radiant skin overnight.

DAY - For natural luminous skin benefit (Functional cosmetics for brightening and refining wrinkles)

• Refreshing and easily absorbing cream allows natural luminous skin.
• A bouncy texture cream absorbs quickly into skin with cooling effect, leaving the skin for long lasting refreshment.
• Pore bounce cream hydrates dry and enhances skin complexion.

NIGHT - Pore tightening sleeping mask tightens pores and help to get radiant skin overnight (Enhance firmness)/ (Functional cosmetics for brightening and refining wrinkles)

• Shape memory formula tightens pores and enhances elasticity, leaving skin smooth and firm.
• Enhances complexion with brightening effect overnight.
• Hydrates and nourishes skin and tightens pores overnight, leaving skin brighter in the morning.
• Controls excess sebum and balances oil for a flawless skin.
• Soothes and lifts skin with cooling effect, providing firmness.
• Can be applied on the neck (gently massage for wrinkle care).
• Instant care for enlarged pores and dull skin overnight.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
• Parabens
• Sulfates
• Phthalates
What else you need to know:
This product is free of synthetic coloring, synthetic fragrances, mineral oil, methylchloroisothiazolinone, imidazolidinyl urea, paraffin, triethanolamine, triclosan, and petrolatum.
Caolion Pore Tightening Day And Night Glowing Duo


I really like the way the duo is packaged with both products in one, the lid is unscrewed to reveal the day cream which has a removable protective plastic cover over it and then the sleeping mask pot unscrews from the day cream pot to reveal the mask, which also has a removable protective plastic cover over it. It is such handy packaging and would be brilliant for travel. Also inside the box is a plastic spatula which makes application more hygienic. 

Caolion Pore Tightening Day And Night Glowing Duo

Day Cream - 20g

Caolion Pore Tightening Day And Night Glowing Duo

The texture of the day cream is like nothing I have ever tried before, it feels almost like jelly to the touch but once I had scooped a little out with the spatula it applied effortlessly onto my skin and sank it beautifully. I have extremely dry skin and I was concerned that the product said it controls sebum and balances oil, I assumed it would be more suited to an oily skin, but then it also claims to be hydrating so I was a little confused. 

The first time I used the day cream I could feel that is was very hydrating, my skin felt incredibly soft and hydrated and was left looking radiant, my skin was glowing. I honestly didn't think my skin would look or feel so nice, the cream has such a strange consistency and didn't feel as if it would be as hydrating because I am used to using a rich moisturising cream but this is entirely different in texture to what I am used to but was just, if not more hydrating that other moisturisers I have in my collection. The day cream is also very cooling on the skin which feels lovely, I have been suffering with a horrendous skin condition which leaves me with huge itchy hives all over my face and body so this was lovely to use as it cooled my skin but it didn't irritate it at all. 

The day cream is absolutely incredible to use under makeup, it leaves my skin feeling super soft, hydrated and glowing and my fine lines under my eyes and my pores look so much better, so my skin is perfectly prepared for makeup and my base looks absolutely flawless. 

Night Mask - 30g

Caolion Pore Tightening Day And Night Glowing Duo

As with the day cream, the night time mask has a texture and consistency that I haven't ever come across before, it is a thick gel like formula that is easy to scoop out using the spatula, I was worried the first time I used it that it would pour everywhere, but it doesn't. 

After cleansing and toning my skin, I applied the mask for the first time all over my face and down my neck, the mask felt very cooling and didn't sting at all, it sank into my skin nicely and dried after a while, it does feel a little tacky whilst it's drying but that is standard for this kind of skincare product.  The next morning I used a flannel and some warm water to wipe over my face and remove the mask, my skin looked incredible, it was glowing and looked bright and plump, I was shocked at how good my skin looked after using the mask only once. 

The night time mask is suitable to use daily which surprised me, I have used it everyday and haven't experienced any irritation at all, even when I had the hives on my face. I love the way my skin looks in the morning, and once I have applied the day cream, my skin looks lovely and that isn't something you will hear me say very often because I hate my skin, it is the bane of my life but since using the Caolion duo my skin looks so much better and I have received so many compliments on my skin recently, on every single Instagram live I have done since using the duo, at least 10 people have told me how nice my skin looks and commented on how glowing it looks, and my friends and family have all commented on how nice my skin is looking, my mum even said it didn't look, and I quote "at all dry, it's very glowing" whilst at a recent hospital appointment. 


Considering I hadn't ever tried any Korean skincare products before trying the Caolion Pore Tightening Day And Night Glowing Duo, I 100% want to try more from Caolion and more Korean skincare products and makeup products, because if they are all as good as this, then I will be a very happy bunny. 

I honestly didn't think that the duo would be suitable for my skin, it is so very dry and dehydrated and so much so that until you see me in the flesh, you don't realise just how dry it is and the fact the duo claimed to control sebum made me think it wouldn't be for me, but how wrong I was. 

My skin has honestly never felt so nice, being a blogger I am very lucky in that I get to try a lot of different skincare products and I have tried some incredible products recently and over the years but nothing has ever left my skin looking and feeling so good. My skin is soft and hydrated and my pores and fine lines look a lot better, it is bright and radiant and my makeup applies so much better and looks so much nicer too, I am honestly blown away by the Caolion duo and the way my skin looks because of it. 

I did worry slightly because the day cream contains 20g and the night mask 30g of product that the duo wouldn't last the at least 4 weeks testing period I have to try skincare products but it was longer than 4 weeks I tested the duo for and I still have some product left so there was no need to worry, a little product goes a long way and I think that is down to the consistency of the products, both are like nothing I've tried before but with both, only a small amount is needed meaning the products last a long time. 

I think it's fair to say that I absolutely love this product, I am thrilled with the results and will one million percent be re purchasing, my only negative is that it isn't widely available here in the UK and the same goes for other Caolion products but hopefully that is something that will change in the future but other than that, I really don't have anything bad to say, it is incredible and I urge you to head to Boots and try it for yourself, you won't regret it! 

Have you tried the Caolion Pore Tightening Day And Night Glowing Duo? Or any Caolion products? And have you tried any other Korean skincare or makeup products you can recommend to me? Let me know in the comments below.

First Impressions Of The GOSH A/W 17 Collection And A Makeup Look

First Impressions Of The GOSH A/W 17 Collection And A Makeup Look

Last week I wrote a post featuring the new GOSH A/W 2017 makeup collection including swatches of all the products. In the post I said I would be back with a first impressions post after I'd had a chance to try out all the products for a little while longer, and today's the day. I have been using all the products from the collection over the last 3 weeks and today I am going to share my thoughts on all the products and I also have a makeup look I created using the products from the collection. I will have more in depth reviews of the products coming soon too but today I will share my first impressions and thoughts after using the products for 3 weeks. 


So I will start off with my first impressions of each product and how I've found them over the last 3 weeks and then I will share the makeup look with you and the products I used to create it. I won't be including swatches in this post as I have already swatched the whole collection in the post featuring the new collection, so if you do want to see swatches they are all in that post.

GOSH Colour Corrector Kit - £11.99

GOSH AW17 Corrector Kit

GOSH AW17 Corrector Kit

The first product I used is the GOSH Colour Correcting Kit, I really like how this kit has a concealer included as most colour correcting kits don't include a concealer, so this was the first thing I noticed and liked. I use the yellow shade under my eyes from the inner corner to cancel out the blue tones and then the salmon shade also under and around my eyes to brighten. The green I use on the redness on my cheeks and around my nose and anywhere else I have redness and the concealer where I need to conceal. I haven't really needed to use the purple shade. 

I have used my fingers and a brush to apply the corrector kit and then either a brush or beauty blender to blend it out and so far I am preferring to use a brush to apply and then the beauty blender to blend it out, it is a brilliant little kit and works really well and it doesn't show through my base at all. I have been using a high end under eye corrector for years but this is just as good and a lot more affordable. 

GOSH Primer Plus+ Skin Adaptor - £14.99

GOSH AW17 Primer Plus+

The GOSH Primer Plus+ Skin Adaptor is a multi functional colour release primer and GOSH claims it enhances any skin tone with a healthy even glow. I have been using an Estee Lauder skin adapting moisturiser as my summer base for around 6 years now so I was eager to see if I enjoyed using this one as much. 

The primer is white in colour but when blended into the skin it changes colour as it adapts to your skin tone, sometimes products like this can be a little dark for me but it isn't at all and the shade is perfect. I have been using this as my base since receiving it and I am super impressed, it doesn't give coverage but just evens everything out and gives me a lovely healthily glow, it is hydrating and doesn't cling to my dry skin at all, it is lightweight and looks lovely on the skin. I haven't yet used this as a primer under my foundation, I have used it purely as a base but for me, it is far too nice to be hidden under foundation, I love it. 

GOSH Mix & Fix Blender Brush - £9.99 

GOSH AW17 Mix & Fix Blender Brush

I have been using this brush to apply the primer and other cream/liquid products from the collection and it is outstanding, when the GOSH products arrived my eldest daughter who is a professional makeup artist was looking through them and she picked the brush up and said "I bet this will be a fantastic brush" and she wasn't wrong. The brush blends the primer into my skin beautifully, I have also used it to blend the lumi drops onto my skin and to buff in my concealer and it does a brilliant job, I would go as far as saying it is the best brush I have used to apply my base products and cream/liquid products and I am going to buy another one and some more GOSH makeup brushes because if they are all as good as this one, they'll be phenomenal. 

GOSH Eyeshadow Primer - £8.99

GOSH AW17 Eyeshadow Primer

The GOSH eyeshadow primer is really easy to use, being a stick/pencil type application it is easy to sweep over the lids and then blend out using either the sponge applicator on the other end, your finger or a brush. I have tried all 3 methods and prefer to use my finger to blend it out, the eyeshadow primer is really good and my eyeshadow lasts all day without fading or creasing. It cancels out everything it needs to and creates a nice even blank canvas for my eyeshadow, my eyeshadows look really vibrant too, I am coming to the end of my Nars eyeshadow primer but I won't be re purchasing another one, I will continue using the GOSH one as it's just as good. 

GOSH 9 Shades Eyeshadow Palette - £11.99

GOSH AW17 Eyeshadow Palette

GOSH AW17 Eyeshadow Palette

The GOSH To Party In London eyeshadow palette contains 9 stunning metallic shadows in beautiful shades, I am a neutrals kinda gal and these shades are all right up my street, they are stunning, there are some warmer shades which I'm loving at the moment, a beautiful gold, a pinky/cream, some silver tones and a stunning blue with purple undertones. All the shadows are extremely pigmented and they all apply and blend like a dream, they have a beautiful buttery texture and aren't glittery or scratchy at all and I have created some stunning looks with the palette. I wear a lot of matte eyeshadows and didn't think I'd like the palette as much as I do but it really is stunning and the eyeshadows are exceptional quality, the shadows work out at just £1.33 each so I'd say that this palette is fabulous for it's affordable price. 

GOSH Lumi Drops - £7.99

GOSH AW17 Lumi Drops Rose Gold

The GOSH Lumi Drops were only launched in 2016 as a highlight and since have become a firm favourite across the globe and I can see why, I first tried the Lumi Drops after receiving some in the Spring/Summer 2017 makeup collection, and the first time I tried them, I loved them and have used them a lot since,  so when I saw the Rose Gold shade in this collection I was thrilled. The Lumi Drops are a stunning shade and they look so beautiful on the skin, I use them as a blush and they are perfect, they last all day on my skin without wearing away or fading and have just the right amount of shimmer, they are perfect for days when I want a touch of highlight but don't want to apply a separate one but look equally as beautiful with a separate highlight applied too. 

I don't think I would ever have tried the Lumi Drops if I hadn't received some in the S/S 17 collection, they always scared me a bit when I looked at them and although I thought they looked nice, I worried they'd be messy to apply, but they really aren't at all.  I pop a little bit on the back of my hand and then apply and blend using the GOSH Mix & Fix brush and they give a stunning flush of colour. I am definitely going to be looking at some more shades in the Lumi Drops as I really like them, they look lovely on the skin, are easy to apply and I only need a tiny amount so one bottle will last me forever and at £7.99 I think that's fantastic. 

GOSH Prime & Set Powder - £9.99

GOSH AW17 Prime & Set Powder

Having super dry skin, I struggle to find setting powders that don't look cakey on my skin so I worried that this powder might with it being a 2 in 1, as I hadn't ever tried anything like it before, I also worried the colour of the powder might not suit my skin tone as the powder is a "banana" powder and yellow in colour. The first time I tried the powder, I used it as my setting powder and all my worries were settled as the powder didn't cake at all and the shade was perfect for me, and I didn't resemble someone with horrific jaundice. The powder doesn't settle into any dry patches or fine lines I have and it feels lovely and lightweight on the skin, it's a really lovely powder. 

GOSH Brow Shape & Fill (Grey Brown 002)  - £8.99

GOSH AW17 Brow Shape & Fill

Unfortunately the GOSH Brow Shape & Fill in the shade grey brown was too dark for my brows, I do have blonde hair and very fair brows though, I have to have them tinted otherwise you can hardly see them, however I did still use the brow pencil so I could give you my first impressions. The shape and fill also comes in 2 other shades, brown and dark brown. 

The brow pencil has a triangular shaped retractable pencil on one end and a powder on the other end, I found the pencil really simple to use, I used the more pointed edge to define my brows and then turned the pencil over to fill in my brows and finished with some of the powder, the pencil is really easy to use and the texture of the pencil is nice and distributes through the brows well. 

GOSH My Favourite Mascara (Black) - £9.99

GOSH AW17 My Favourite Mascara

The My Favourite Mascara is formulated to deliver perfectly separated and natural looking lashes with volume and definition. The brush is a fibre brush and GOSH claims it separates the lashes and distributes the product naturally and evenly. The mascara is considered to be an everyday mascara by GOSH, so I wasn't expecting much in the way of volume or length but I was shocked as it gave me amazing length and volume and  even the tiny little lashes in the inner corner of my eye were coated and I find a lot of mascara wands don't reach those. 

I have loved wearing this mascara and have been asked so many times what mascara I have on, I have been asked several times after being on an Instagram stories video, my friends have asked me and the girl who waxed and tinted my brows at Benefit also asked me which is a good sign that it looks great to me. The mascara doesn't smudge at all, that is something I really struggle with and most mascaras do smudge on me but this doesn't, it doesn't flake and is easy to remove, it does exactly what GOSH claim it does, it lengthens, separates, gives volume and distributes the product evenly so all my lashes are coated, all in all it's a great mascara.

GOSH Strobe & Go Kit (001 Highlight) - £12.99

GOSH AW17 Strobe & Go Kit

The GOSH Strobe & Go Kit in the shade highlight is a described by GOSH as a gorgeous highlight and blush palette that is suitable for most if not all skin tones. I mostly use the palette for highlight, but have used it for blush and eyeshadow too.  I like to use the top 2 shades as my highlight, and the bottom shades are amazing for eyeshadow but the deeper shade is lovely as a blush and could be used as a shimmery bronzer on some skin tones. I love me some highlight and this is such a stunning palette and one I know I will get a lot of use from. 

GOSH Lift & Highlight (Nude 001) - £9.99

GOSH AW17 Lift & Highlight Nude

When I first saw the Lift & Highlight Pencil, I honestly didn't think I would use it and thought it would be something I swatched, tried once and never used. How wrong I was, this is such a handy pencil, one end is a shimmery highlight and one brightening. I use the brightening end once I have applied my base and I apply it to the top of my cheekbones, down my nose, a little on my forehead and my chin and basically anywhere I want brightening. I then use my mix & fix blender brush to blend it into the skin, it gives a really lovely effect and really brightens my face, the shimmery end I use under my brow bone and in the inner corner of my eyes and again it is lovely, it's not overly shimmery either so no disco ball effects it's just a nice highlight. Considering I didn't think I'd use it, I have used it every time I have done my makeup!


To create the makeup look I used every single product from the collection, for my lips I used a GOSH matte lipstick from the GOSH SS 17 collection


First of all I used the Corrector Kit to cancel out the blue tones under my eyes and the redness on my cheeks and around my nose and to conceal where I needed it. 

Next I used the Primer Plus+ and dotted it around my face and then used the mix & fix blender brush to blend the primer into my skin.

Then I used the Lift & Highlight pencil to brighten up my face where I needed it and I also applied it in the inner corner of my eyes. 


First of all I used the Eyeshadow Primer and applied it all over my lid and blended it out with my finger. 

I then used the Brow Shape & Fill using the pencil end to define and the powder to fill in my brows. 

GOSH AW17 Eyeshadow Palette

Next for eyeshadow I used shade 1 as my transition shade and blended it out and then added shade 2 to the crease and blended it out a little to the outer corner and I also took it under my lower lash line. I then applied shade 3 all over the lid and finished with shade 4 which I applied slightly to the outer corner and under my lower lash line. 

To finish my eyes,  I applied the Favourite Mascara to my top and bottom lashes, I used 2 coats of mascara. 


I used the Lumi Drops as my blush, I applied a little to the back of my hand and then blended it onto the skin using the Mix & Fix blender brush, applying it to the apples of my cheeks and blending out and up slightly. 

Finishing The Face

Since I had finished applying all my cream/liquid products to my face, I moved onto powder, I applied the Prime & Set "banana" powder using a big duo fibre brush, applying it lightly all over my face. 

I then applied the Strobe & Go Kit using the top right shade in the palette to the tops of my cheeks and down my nose. 

Then finally I applied my lipstick and the look was finished. 


GOSH AW17 Make Up Look

GOSH AW17 Make Up Look

This has been a super long post and very picture heavy so thank you so much for bearing with me. I don't feel you can really write a first impressions post without going into some detail so I have tried to include as much as I could without writing too much. I will have some full reviews coming too of the products especially the Brow Growth Serum which I couldn't include in this post as I had only been using it for 3 weeks so it isn't long enough to review it properly.


Overall I am extremely impressed with this collection and there isn't a single product I dislike  which is unusual for me when I'm trying out a full collection. I have now been using the products exclusively for 3 weeks and I love all the products and apart from the brow pencil but that is only because the shades that are available aren't suitable for me but there isn't one product I wouldn't re purchase. It is an amazing collection and I highly recommend you check it out, especially as it's on a 3 for 2 offer at the moment in store and online at Superdrug

Have you tried anything from the GOSH AW 17 makeup collection? Which is your favourite product from the collection & the product or products you think you will buy? And did you make it this far? If you did you're a superstar! Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
