I was sent four of GOSH Copenhagen’s* new launches a few weeks ago. Here are my thoughts.
Nail & Cuticle Oil with Argan Oil and Vitamin E, R99
I’ll start with what I didn’t like. The bristles on brush in the one I got were stuck together and very, very stiff, making application rather tricky.
Having said that I love the oil itself. It’s no too runny and absorbs quickly into the nails and cuticles. I apply it before bed, and wake up with healthy-looking supple cuticles.
Velvet Touch Matt Lipstick in Classic Red and Plum, R125 each
I adore this formula! It’s soft and creamy, which makes for easy application (not normally the case with matt formulas). Enriched with natural acids and hyaluronic acids, it hydrates and smoothes the lips, making for very comfortable wear.
The colour payoff is great too. The pigments and rich, deep and true, delivering exactly what you see in the bullet to your lips. There are 8 shades launching in total, including 3 great nudes.
Boombastic XXL Swirl Volume Mascara in Black, R145
Goodness me! If you’re in the market for a volumising and lengthening mascara, this is the one.
As if this effect wasn’t impressive enough, the formula is enriched with argan oil and bamboo extract to nourish the lashes, leaving them soft and fluttery, even with two coats.
Special mention too to the best Press Release USB, ever!
