So last night I got to do something a little bit special. Rather than my usual Tuesday night of gym, dinner and then a little TV before bed, I got to spend the evening in London, eating dinner at the amazing Mondrian Restaurant and getting to have a sneak peek and play with the new GOSH AW16 Copenhagen Collection.
The main focus of the AW16 Collection is the Nordic/Danish raw beauty of nature. All the ingredients used are natural, vegan friendly (except the lipsticks which contain bees wax) nourishing and not to mention incredibly beautiful.
So let me introduce you to the collection:
Lash Sculpting Fibre Mascara
Their new lash sculpting fibre mascara not only adds volume and length but as it’s made with antioxidant rich Nordic seaweed, it also cares for your lashes. The formula contains fibres which are up to 2mm long. These fibres then attach to your lashes to create volume and add length to your lashes.
Brow Sculpting Fibre Gel
Like the Lash Sculpting Fibre Mascara, the Brow Sculpting Fibre Gel also contains fibres which help you achieve thicker looking brows. As the brush is so small, you can really use it to create a natural but more defined brow.
Giant Pro Liner
The new Giant Pro Liner is one of my favourites in this collection. The intense black colour and pointed nib make it incredibly easy to apply either a thin or stronger line with accuracy.
It’s also incredibly long lasting. I tried it on my hand last night and it would not budge until I used makeup remover – very impressive.
Foundation + Cover and Conceal
The GOSH Foundation Cover & Seal is another amazing product in the Gosh Copenhagen AW16 Collection. It’s a foundation and concealer in one which gives all day coverage that feels natural on the skin with a smooth satin finish. It’s formulated to be highly pigmented and with active ingredients like hyaluronic acid, liquid sea minerals and seaweed, it’s incredibly nourishing on the skin.
Overnight Primer Oil Essence
This is the product I’m most excited about. The Overnight Primer Oil Essence is packed full of antioxidants, fatty acids and caring oils, which combine to care for your skin. The formula works best overnight, it preps your skin while you’re sleeping so that you can wake up, de-stressed, well-moisturised with glowy and primed skin ready for your makeup.
As we all know contouring and strobing is very much on trend. And if you listen to Sidsel Marie Bøg, the Global MUA for GOSH, the trend is here to stay. And the contour’n’strobe kit is a must-have if you want to master the basics.
The kit includes two bronzers, one semi-matte blusher and one highlighter and instructions on the back. You really can’t fail with this! Plus as the kit comes in lit and medium, there are shades to suit all skin types.
Velvet Touch Matte Lipsticks
There are four new shades this season. And all of them are gorgeous! I have three of them, Matte Cinnamon, Matte Grape and Matte Cranberry.
All of them have added natural waxes and hyaluronic acid to moisturise, smooth and soothe the lips. They’re also incredibly creamy, long-lasting with an intense matte colour effect.
