Want a sneaky peek into the new GOSH SS16 Collection? I have all the new additions here…
GOSH SS16 Collection
I was super excited to be invited to the pre-launch viewing of the GOSH SS16 collection this week. The range launches on the 10th of Feb but I think there are a few must-haves here so make a note! I’ve updated the descriptions with links – go go go!
The range has a neutral, natural focus with a lot of nudes and subtle berry shades so this is a range that will appeal to, and suit, a lot of people.
2015 marked the 30th anniversary of the iconic Color Riche range which resulted in the beautiful L’Oréal Paris Color Riche 30 Years Lipstick Collection. I bought these lipsticks in February (that must be a record) but completely forgot to blog about them *slaps wrist*.
L’Oréal Paris Color Riche 30 Years Lipstick Collection
There are lots of shades in the range but I picked these 5 as they stood out to me as the colours from which I would get the most wear over different seasons. The colours I chose, from left to right, were:
130 Androgyne (matte) – A pretty, chalky baby pink that looks amazing with a smokey eye.
132 Magnolia Irreverence (satin) – A striking fuchsia pink with a blue base.
134 Rose Royale (satin) – A slightly softer, but still very eye-catching, pink.
229 Cliché Mania (matte) – A true orange lipstick that I was nervous to wear but looks beautiful on, especially in the summer.
430 Mon Jules (matte) – A dark berry red that has really come into its own now the weather is colder.
Glo & Ray are fast becoming one of my favourites brands and it baffles me that they are not better known… but I think that may change. They have some seriously great products, some of which you can see in my previous reviews HERE and HERE.
When the lovely folks at Glo & Ray asked me to pick some items to review, I had to take my time: I’d not heard of the brand before but the range is quite wide and has a good mix of exciting looking products. I was on the website for ages before I could whittle my choices down but in the end I chose a lipstick (of course), a blusher/bronzer and an eyeliner.
This is a new favourite product of mine: a truly matte lip product that doesn’t dry out my lips.
You paint this on like a lip gloss with the sponge doe-foot applicator. The colour is ridiculously pigmented and opaque in one coat. The applicator is a little tricky to use, just because it is so pigmented so any mistakes or wobbly lines show up and you do need to be precise with this because it dries quickly and really does stay put!
When you first apply it is glossy and shiny and then before your eyes it dries to the most amazing matte finish. A PROPER matte finish. And it has great longevity – I wouldn’t say it’d last all day, but the first time I used this I applied it on the way to a work party at about 4pm. The drinks were free so this product was really put to the drinks test and it Did. Not. Budge. To the point where on the tube home at midnight I was scrubbing it off my lips with a wet wipe!
The Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks contain Vitamin E and avocado oil so they don’t dry out your lips which can be a downside of matte lip products. As with anything matte, I would recommend exfoliating your lips before application as this will show up flakes like a mofo.
I am definitely going to get some of the other colours from this range as this is LOVE.
