GOSH Prime ‘n’ Set

GOSH prime n set

I had high hopes of this two-in-one primer & mattifying setting powder, and I did give it a reasonable go – but I’m afraid I wasn’t impressed. It was far too light to make any difference in either priming or setting, and really the mattifying part of it was too drying as well. So for me it didn’t have anything going for it at all – sorry!

Maybe you have to be young and not actually in need of make-up to benefit from this product? Who can tell … Anyway, I won’t be buying it again.

GOSH BB Powder and a Nectar Surprise!

GOSH BB powder

I popped this one into my shopping basket at Superdrug, from memory, as I was fascinated by the concept of a BB powder. I couldn’t wait to try it so took it to work all last week in place of my usual pressed powder. Sadly, it doesn’t do the trick for me – I need a fair amount of coverage and this ain’t it, so it’s a disappointment really. However, those of you with perfect skin and absolutely no shine might like it!

On the plus side, I was shopping in Sainsbury’s yesterday and treated myself to a few beauty goodies. When I got to the checkout I found that I have so many points on my lovely Nectar card (how did that happen?!?) that I could have £40-worth of stuff free, so I only had to pay £2.50 for my whole shop. Honestly, that made my day, and as I still have lots of points left, I shall definitely be buying more make-up and beauty products in Sainsbury’s in the future!
