Gosh Foundation Drops

I was very eager to try out GOSH Foundation drops because it is lightweight than a foundation.  Also because it is one of the best base products for the oily/combination skin without the high–end price tag. I’m going all gaga over this product.

Packaging:

The bottle intrigued me, unlike other foundations that come in transparent bottle, this one comes in an all black bottle that has a pipette dropper lid like you would get with natural oils. The dropper is very practical since this one is lighter in consistency. I like the fact that the bottle is pretty simple because they let the product do the talking.

Texture :

After testing this on my hand for the first time, I was quite impressed as it went on smoothly and was really soft. It is very watery in consistency, thinner than any BB cream or liquid foundation that I’ve used.  It feels like you are applying some kind of beauty oil on your face and that’s not what you expect from your foundation. But trust me it’s worthwhile!

 

Application :

It is very easy to apply and highly buildable. I’ve noticed that if you apply it with a beauty blender, then most of the product gets absorbed in the beauty blender itself so I wouldn’t recommend you to use a beauty blender. Hence I apply it with the dot method. After I prime my face, I apply dots  all over my face with the dropper itself making sure it doesn’t drip. Then I gently blend it with my fingers. It gives a very light yet a very good coverage. It blends with your skin that well that it stays there until you remove it. No patches on the t-zone and it doesn’t even clog my pores.

Coverage :

This foundation is a light coverage product. However you can’t even imagine how buildable this formula is. It slides on your skin like a butter on a warm toast and your skin almost ‘absorbs’ the product leaving you with airbrushed, velvet finish. It gives me the most natural coverage.  Apply just a little bit more to achieve the medium coverage and add slightly more and you will achieve the full coverage base without looking too caked up. It looks so natural and breathable, almost magical. I personally feel it gives more natural looking coverage than any BB cream or foundation that I have used and it’s as light as a lotion. You can’t even feel that you’re wearing anything on your face because it’s too light to even notice. I just simply forget that I’m wearing any makeup. Plus it covers my dark circles and blemishes so  painlessly that I don’t even need a concealer.

Why I loved this :

The best thing about this product is that it contains Argan Oil in it and it’s chemical free. Another strong side of this product is its color range. My problem with drugstore foundations is the fact that they have no shades for the yellow undertones and I always end up with pink/peachy shades on my face… It’s the first drugstore face product that matches perfectly. I have mine in the shade 008 which is the perfect yellow undertone, medium shade foundation. It has a certain glow to it which makes your skin look very young and fresh. Brilliant! I will definitely repurchase this and I have already started using it on a daily basis, replacing my BB Creams and CC creams. Excellent product for summers when I can’t stand makeup on my face. Mix in a little Dr. Haushka bronzing liquid in it and I’m good to go.

GOSH Lumi Drops

I had never tried liquid highlighters as I’m more of a powder highlighter kind of girl, but eversince I was introduced to GOSH lumi drop by team GOSH, I’m obsessing over this product. GOSH Lumi Drops are a tinted highlighting lotion that you can either mix with foundation or moisturizer for an all over glow, or pat on top of your finished make up look for more intense glow. They are available in 3 different shades, vanilla, peach and bronze. I have 002 Vanilla which is a dull gold colour.

Packaging :

The GOSH  is packaged within a 15ml squeezy plastic bottle similar to an eye drops bottle, with a small nozzle which dispenses a small amount of product so you can really control how much to use.

Texture :

This highlighter is really lightweight and sheer so you won’t end up with dull gold patches on your face, rather a very natural healthy glow.

Consistency :

I expected the consistency to be quite runny, but it’s not particularly runny at all and is more like a gel than a liquid. GOSH recommend using their Lumi Drops alone for a radiant finish, to use for strobing or even mixing with your foundation so they’re really quite versatile.

Application :

I put dots with the nozzle of this bottle on my cheekbones and bridge of the nose and then lightly tap my fingers to spread it evenly and blend it out. It gives a really subtle glow that doesn’t overpower or look too OTT. I love the dewy look it gives me and I can see myself reaching for this a lot in summers.

The gel blends easily into the skin to leave a very subtle tint, and pretty shimmer but the tint is barely noticeable. However you can definitely build up the colour intensity should you want to. My favourite way to use the GOSH Lumi Drops Illuminating Highlighter is to add a tiny amount to my cheekbones for a subtle glow on the top of my foundation but in the Summer I can imagine mixing this with a BB Cream for extra radiance. I really like how pigmented it is.

Verdict:

It isn’t as pigmented as I expected it to be but I wouldn’t mind using it casually. Also its staying power is weak and after a few hours of application it’s barely noticeable. If I repurchase, then I would like to try out the peach Lumi drops next time around.
