I purchased the GOSH High Coverage Concealer when Superdrug were running a buy one, get one free epic deal across all cosmetics a few weeks ago. I haven’t read any reviews on this concealer before, but I really love the GOSH XCeptional Wear Foundation, so I figured it was worth a try, as I’d finished a couple of concealers in my stash recently.
GOSH High Coverage Concealer
The GOSH High Coverage Concealer is £7.99 and is available in just five shades which is ridiculously poor and not at all inclusive. There’s absolutely zero shades for anyone with a skintone that’s deeper than being a medium skintone.
Brands really need to do better, especially when you compare it to the likes of Revolution which just dropped 55 shades on their new foundation and concealer.
Five shades is really pathetic, but I opted for the lightest shade 001 Porcelain because I use the shade Porcelain in the XCeptional Wear Foundation – so you’d assume they would be the same shade, wouldn’t you?
- Full coverage
- Covers imperfections
- Hides dark circles
- Blurs small lines & wrinkles
- Long lasting
- Radiant & flawless finish
- Easy to apply
- Perfume free
This shade is supposedly Porcelain, and it’s laughable. The Porcelain shade of the XCeptional Foundation is amazing for super pale skin like mine, so I thought Porcelain in this concealer would at least be similar. There’s no way this concealer would even work for light skintones, never mind those with porcelain skintones.
It’s such an awful shade, and it’s not a shade I can make work for me, even with lightening drops as I have to use more lightening drops in ratio to the concealer. It does have a nice, buildable formula that’s medium coverage rather than full but it oxidises really bad on the skin.
So it actually deepens by at least two shades within only ten minutes. It’s such a fail, and I’d recommend Maybelline Fit Me Concealer over this concealer every single time..
