GOSH Primer Plus+ Skin Adaptor Anti-Pollution


GOSH Primer Plus+ Skin Adaptor Anti-Pollution


Hiya Gorgeous

I don't know about you, but I do like to go no make up on occasions, and yes I was recently caught out by one of my gorgeous readers in a supermarket lately, where I wanted the ground to open up and swallow me, I found myself saying " oh it's so lovely to meet you, excuse my face ! " LOL  I wish I had been wearing this NEW product from Gosh Copenhagen at the time.

Gosh Primer Primer Plus Skin Adaptor Anti Pollution is unlike anything I have tried before, on first glance on the shelf you may dismiss it as "just another primer "  it is so much more than that, described as multi-functional makeup, it truly is a bit of a wonder product in my opinion.

GOSH Primer Plus+ Skin Adaptor Anti-Pollution


The One shade it comes in is aptly named Chameleon, as you apply it the pale shade formula adapts to your skins natural tone, and leaves you looking no make up, but 100% better, as a primer is sits beautifully on the skin, is moist without being wet, leaves a perfect base for foundation, not only does it leave you looking more "dressed" than if you were to go bare faced it is also protecting your skin from today's pollution, due to the key ingredients;


  • CITYGUARD+  : A complex made up of two components from marine origin.
  • OAK EXTRACT : With it's intense astringent and oxidant properties.



This really does give you the best of both worlds,  paraben & perfume free, cruelty free.

CLOUD 9 Skin Solutions Good Night Deep Nourishing Sleep Mask


The Avocado is known to nourish and hydrate, being full of healthy fatty acids, while Vitamin B12 stimulates cell renewal for softness and elasticity, Vitamin A, which is actually a mild form of Retinol that helps to stimulate collagen and Vitamin E which protects the skin from pollutants.

CLOUD 9 Skin Solutions Good Night Deep Nourishing Sleep Mask


This mask is literally a moisture boost for your skin nd is ideal for normal, dry or dehydrated skin, the rich mask literally acts as a night time facial, housed in a sterile pump system there is no need to contaminate your product with your fingers as the pump delivers just the right amount for your face, I used 3 pumps as I like to take night products from the neck all the way down.  This was deeply nourishing, only a very thin layer was needed to leave my skin looking fresh, thoroughly moisturised with a real bounce to the touch feel in the morning. It is recommended that you use this product nightly for the best results.

Mary Kay Mini Compact & Liquid Eyeliner Pen

Hi Loves

Here I am again with Mary Kay, this time its a couple of eye products that are new to the collection.


Mary Kay Mini Compact & Liquid Eyeliner Pen


Mini-Compact 

This super little black gloss compact comes complete with mirror and is designed to fit either 2 mineral eye colour quads ( shown here ) or one complete palette of shades, there is also space underneath the shades to include again either 2 spare quads or 1 spare palette, available as an empty palette compact this is is ideal for popping into your handbag for quick touch ups should you need it. 



Mary Kay Mini Compact & Liquid Eyeliner Pen

The 2 quad palettes shown here are the Mineral eye colour in Shades of Jade & Berry Haute. highly pigmented colours that are butter soft  mineral powder with barely any fallout.  I love the idea that you only need this one mini palette to house a myriad of shades.


Mary Kay Mini Compact & Liquid Eyeliner Pen


Liquid Eyeliner Pen 

This liner pen is a fine tipped felt pen that delivers a perfectly smooth line in one easy stroke, I am not an eyeliner aficionado so I had one of my girls who is queen of the flick to test this out for me, and it got a good thumbs up, the deepest black that did last throughout the day with no smudging, but don't get caught in the rain as it isn't waterproof.

Mary Kay NEW Gel Semi-Shine Lipstick

Hi Beautiful

You have heard me talk about Mary Kay previously and can read about it here, this time round this post comes with some fabulous new launches I have 2 lipsticks to show you,  Gel Semi-Shine  and the shades are literally both ends of the spectrum, a Deep Red and a Nude.


Mary Kay NEW Gel Semi-Shine Lipstick


First off I want to mention the packaging, I love it !  possibly because it reminds me of Giorgio Armani packaging, but more because not only is it elegant in it's black gloss tube and at the same time totally handy, the casing top has a round window for you to see your shade ( clever ) 

Onto the shades 


Mary Kay NEW Gel Semi-Shine Lipstick


Naturally Buff, is the perfect nude in that it will suit everyone, the  gel semi-shine consistency literally glides on feeling super lightweight and comfortable, while not a gloss it gives your lips a healthy sheen making them appear ultra moisturised.
Mary Kay NEW Gel Semi-Shine Lipstick



Scarlett Red , for all you red loving diva's out there this red I would say is more of a dark cranberry, again the consistency is fabulous, it has a great pigment and does last with no bleeding, I tried it without a lip liner and had no problems at all with feathering.

These lipsticks have what the company call optical illuminators, I could tell there was something going on as it's not a pearl or a shimmer but there is definitely something giving a soft blur look to the lips.

Available in 12 Shades the NEW Gel Semi-Shine Lipsticks can be seen HERE

XIP Professional Golden Touch Sculpting Palette

Hi Loves
Nothing makes me happier than trying something totally new, I had heard of the brand XIP on the grapevine, well Instagram to be precise, I honestly think nowadays you find the best products via social media and word of mouth, I'm not sure any of us believe the hype behind a super expensive glossy any more ? This Dutch brand is the creation of makeup artists and industry experts, there are a few things I love but none more so than the fact that the packaging is recyclable, super glam in white and gold, the brand is best described as small but perfectly formed :)

I do have a few bits to bring you from this brand, but rather than overwhelm and to be honest I think they each deserve a post in their own right, I am breaking it down into individual reviews starting with.

XIP Golden Touch Sculpting Palette Cream 

Let's start by me saying I am not an instagram superstar at contouring and shading, however I do a little bit just to throw in some shadows and hide some chubby bits !  did I really just admit that ? This cream palette is heaven to use 6 shades from the palest cream to deep chocolate, allowing you to mix and match to your hearts content, the pigmentation is amazing so you don't actually need a lot of product, which is nice as it means you can be subtle for day and dramatic for night should you wish. I also favour cream products as I often find that powder contour literally highlights any imperfections on the skin. ie: wrinkles !

To compliment the ease of use there is the most beautiful Sculpting Cream Brush, with its pearled wooden handle graduated gold and silver shaft the synthetic cruelty free bristles are as soft as velvet on the skin, blending the product seamlessly. If you are not into contouring this would make a fabulous foundation stippler.

XIP for Xtremely Important People.
