After the excitement of all the Winter/Christmas releases, I always find Spring to be a little bit underwhelming in terms of new releases but Spring 2016 is proving to be amazing and jam packed with new releases from drugstore and higher end brands. One brands’ Spring releases have really piqued my interest, and that is GOSH. In my opinion, GOSH is a really underrated brand and doesn’t get the recognition that it should but I’ve always loved everything I’ve tried, and their Velvet Touch Eye Liner is my holy grail eyeliner pencil formula and I’ve repurchasing the Black Ink shade for at least seven years; if you’re looking for a cheap, super pigmented black liner that doesn’t budge, you have to try it. Eyeliner love aside, one of the new GOSH Spring releases is the new GOSH Lumi Drops Illuminating Highlighter which is available in a total of three shades; 002 Vanilla, 004 Peach and 006 Bronze and they retail for £7.99 each.
The GOSH Lumi Drops Illuminating Highlighter 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 use.
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 which I drop onto the back of my hand and then apply to my face with my fingertips. 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.
I have the GOSH Lumi Drops Illuminating Highlighter in the shade 004 Peach which I assumed would be quite dark for me as it’s a bronzey shade in the bottle, but it’s actually rather sheer when blended into the skin like the swatches show above.
The gel blends into the skin to leave a very subtle tint, and pretty shimmer but the tint is barely noticeable but 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.
