WHAT I ATE WEDNESDAY {17TH AUGUST 2016}

Hello my Lovelies, 

Welcome to today's post, i hope you are all having a wonderful day. I got some really exciting news yesterday, Stylish and Fabulous has been Shortlisted in this years #Littlewoodsirelandblogawards in the Beauty and Fashion Categorie. This is the second year in a row in which we have made into the Shortlist and I would love to go one better then last year. If you guys would like to vote for Stylish and Fabulous in both the Beauty and Fashion categories I will leave all the details you need below this post. 

Anyway moving on to today's post and for today's one i'm going to share with you all a 'What I ate Wednesday Post', i haven't did one of these posts in ages so i just thought today i would do one for you all.

Breakfast
So up first this morning was Breakfast, considering i was up until quarter to 4 in the morning due to me having an awful night of not sleeping, i did however wake up at the normal time of 8 o'clock for Breakfast, I love to change around my breakfast's during the week, i get bored of eating the same thing 7 day's in a row, so this morning i decided to go for some Rolled Wholegrain Oats and Hot milk. I know it seems like a really warm breakfast ideal for winter and not summer, but i love something warm especially hot oats its so yummy!! I also decided to go for a Glass of Apple Juice as i just love a good Juice in the mornings!!


Lunch/Dinner
Now that I'm back at the gym in the evenings, i like to have Dinner instead of Lunch as it digests a lot better before i head to the gym in the evening. Over the past few months, i would have normally have had my dinner an hour or two before going to the gym, but i felt so full that i could barely move so by having my dinner at lunch i find it a lot easier. I would simply have a light snack before going. For today's dinner I had a Breadcrumb fish Fillet with some Home-made Chips and some Beans, yes i know it wasn't the healthiest of dinners today but this was my mid-week treat!!


Snack
As I was heading to Gym i decided to go for a Flahvans Oaty Flapjack and a small packed of Rasins as its quite a light combination of food before doing a workout.


Mid-Evening Snack

Lastly for my Mid-Evening Snack I decided to go for a Ciabatta Sub with a slice of Bacon in it as i was starving from doing my workout.

Weekend Beauty Buy's!!

Hello my Lovelies,

How was everyone's weekend, i hope you all had a lovely one.

For today's post I'm going to be sharing with you all my Weekend Beauty Buy's, basically this is a post on some Beauty Products that I bought over the Weekend which i felt was of interest to you readers!!

PRO LIQUID EYELINER FROM THE MAKEUP GALLERY

So up first i'm going to start off with this Pro Liquid Eyeliner from the Makeup Gallery in Dealz. In the past i have tried the Makeup Gallery's Bronzer which was really good, so i was really intrigued to try out some of there eye products as they look really nice. The Pro Liquid Eyeliner is long lasting with intense colour to give a bold and beautiful look to your eyes. 
What i like about the product is that the eye applicator (brush) is really thin and long which i feel will make it a lot easier to apply the product to your eyes. So I'm looking forward to trying this out on my eyes especially for night look.
This only cost €1.50 which was really cheap, but even though it isn't an expensive eyeliner i still feel on my first impressions that this will work out really nice on the eye's

Price: €1.50
Shop: dealz.com


BOTANICS PURIFYING FACE SCRUB 'ALL BRIGHT'

Next up is this Botanics Purifying Face Scrub 'All Bright'. This Scrub buffs away impurities to revel brighter skin, It is also suitable for all skin types too. I love a good Face Scrub, I like to use a scrub on my face in the morning and evening but mostly in the morning as it removes any impurities such as oil and dirt away from my face. 

This scrub in particular contains refining walnut shell to buff away flaky skin while crushed apricot seeds gently sweep away any impurities. Also the scrub hibiscus contains Hibiscus which is a Natural Brightness Booster that brightens the skin along with smoothing the skin. 

I'm looking forward to using this on my skin as i just love scrubs for my face and with it contain the Brightness Booster Hibiscus, I can't wait to see the results of brighter skin.

Price: €2.99 (this product is on offer from €5.99)
Shop: boots.ie


VASELINE SPRAY MOISTURISER

I then bought this Vaseline Spray & Go Body Moisturiser, i decided to buy the Cocoa Radiance fragrance because it smelled gorgeous, I have used these in the past and I absolutely love using them.
 I love these Spray and Go Moisturisers as they are super handy to just spray on to your skin after you have had a shower or bath.
 I also love how the moisturiser absorbs really quickly along with leaving your skin super soft and looking radiant. It is also ideal for helping dry skin.

Price: €3.45 (on offer in store and online)
Shop: boots.ie


COLLECTION GEL NAIL POLISH

Next up I bought this Gel Nail Polish from Collection, I actually found this for sale in a sale basket in boots as it was reduced in price from €5.75 to €2.50. 
The shade in which i got was Think Pink 8, which is a shade i love to apply to my Nails.
 I am also a huge fan of Gel Nail Polishes as i feel the product stays longer on your nails, also with this particular brand the brush is quite wide so you can apply the nail polish a lot more easier to your nails.

Price: €2.50 from €5.75 
Shop: boots.ie


LACURA NAIL HARDENER

On to my last product in which i bought over the weekend and its this Nail Hardener which is from the range Lacura Beauty which is available in Alid's.
 I decided to buy this as over the last few months I have noticed my nails a little brittle and not as hard as what they use to so Iv'e decided to give this a go to see if it works or not. The formula which is contained in this product is micro-diamond particles which helps to prevent nails from splitting and breaking, giving them a beautiful shine. 
And with the regular use of this product your nails can then become stronger and harder. So I'm going to give it a go and see how well it goes. I bought this for only €2.49 which was amazing value in Aldi's.

Price: €2.49
Shop: Aldi.ie

What is Friendship | in collaboration with Huggle!!

Hello my Lovelies,

I hope you are all having a lovely day. So I got some exciting news on Monday as Huggle got in contact with me to do a collaboration post on Friendship, So as you can probably tell i was truly excited to be getting the chance to talk about Friendship as its a subject that we all like to have a good chat about,  So with out further a do here it is.......

Friendship is one of the most important things in our lives and Huggle  has asked me to write about what i think makes a good friend, Huggle is a social app which helps you to discover and connect with people who go to the places you go. It's a wonderful app for making friends and meeting like-minded people. You can download it here.


After spending today chatting over lovely food with one of my best friends this has put me in the best mind to sit down and talk to you all about friendship. I believe that friendship is part of who we are as people. I feel we were put on this planet to make our journey throughout friendship, however sometimes friendships lasts and some sadly leave our lives too, but its ok it only means you've had that time with that person, be it good or bad.  Personally I feel you 'loose some you win some' its a saying i have always lived by as i have experienced it myself throughout my journey throughout friendship where i have lost friendships and I have gained some amazing friendships. 


From experience I have had it all from Childhood Friendships to Loosing Friends  and to gaining Friends for Life. But one thing i do no for sure is that you need a friend, There is no perfect formula that creates a good friend, it doesn't matter what shape or form friends come in, they can truly make an amazing difference to your life in so many way's. Also it doesn't matter how many friends you have, if you have one good friend who you can talk to, share your problems and above all support you through difficult times then you know you have a friend for life. Having friends is amazing as you can share anything (well maybe not everything) but certain things that you can't talk to your Family about and above all else they are not there to judge you but to support you.



I myself have had amazing friendships, one of which would be one of my Childhood Friendships, where i made friends with one friend when we were in Junior Infants Class (you know who you are) and 26 years later we are still the best of friends. Although we may go 3 to 4 months without speaking to each other which is down to our hectic lives we still mange a catch up over coffee and have a great chat. I feel a friendship like this one really stands out as been an amazing one as she has been always there for me when i need to talk or if i need a favour or two. But she will always know no matter what happens or how hectic our lives our we will always be best friends.


Even throughout the likes of School and College it can be really hard to keep friendships going especially if your friends are not going to the same School/College as you and i have experienced that myself in which I lost a few friends as they ended up going to a different Schools/Colleges, which made it quite hard to keep in touch. But I have to be honest even though i lost friends i actually gained some really amazing ones throughout my School and College years, which like my first ever Childhood friendship they have lasted and I am proud to call them my Best Friends. 


Below is a list of the different types of Friendships there is. I myself have went over each categories and i have singled out certain people who i feel fall into these categories and the impact they have had on my life. 




Family
Family aren't just your family they are your friends too and they are probably your closest excepted you probably don't know it yet

Childhood Friendship
This categorie is for those people you grew up with and made the earliest of memories with. You might have been born around the same time as them and you feel as though you're always going to be best friends as you don't know life without them. 

Your Partner/Husband/Wife/Girlfriend/Boyfriend
Your partner can be not only your partner but your friend too as you chose to be with them. 

Work Colleagues
The people you work with on a daily basics, if you're really lucky you may get on really well with those you work with and build good friendships with them. Also with out your work friends how would you get through the day..... 

A Pet
Loads of people adore their own pets and talk to them like they are there friends. I myself have 3 Dogs and 2 Cats, and I sometimes find myself talking to them like there real humans 

Adulthood Friendships
Throughout my Adulthood i have made many Friendships and I luck forward to making more as i go through life!!

That Friend for Life
Its really nice to think that we have that one amazing friend that we know is going to be in our life forever no matter what happens. A friend that you can go for weeks without talking to and when you eventually meet up its like nothing ever changed







Within my Friendships I have known my Childhood Friend a long time compared to my other Best Friends, but I wouldn't treat them any different from my Childhood Friend as they are all equal and are totally different in there own ways. I admire my Friends for who they are and what they are, they keep me grounded and I know that their always there when i need to talk to them or if i have problem that I need to share. Without them I would be nothing!! 









I really do have some amazing friends that i wouldn't swap for the world, ones i have know for the majority of my life, ones that i spent a number of years in School and College with and others that i have only known for the past year or two.  I value all types of friendships and you should too, and if your reading this and thinking of someone or a friend why not drop them a text or give them a call. 

" A strong friendship doesn't need daily conversation or being together. As long as the relationship lies in the heart, true friends never part"

I would love to know what you think of friendship and what it means to you, leave me a comment below as to what you think!!!

My July Favourites 2016!!

Hello my Lovelies,

Happy Tuesday to you all, I hope you are all having a lovely day so far. For today's post I'm going to be sharing with you all my July Favourites. I can't believe that July is over and we are now in August, this year seems to be flying by. This month there was a selection of different products that i loved using and I manged to break it down to six products in total to share with you all.

To find out what products made into my July Favourites then just keep reading......

Cien BB Cream All-in-One
My first favourite for the month of July is this Cien BB Cream All-in-One. If you guys read my recent post on the Lidl's New Beauty Range over here on the blog, then you would have already seen that i'm a massive fan of there new range. I started using this BB Cream at the beginning of July as i was intrigued to see how good it was to other BB Creams already on the market. 
When I first started using it, i started to mix a small amount with my foundation to give a bit more coverage but after a few days I gave up mixing the two together and started to use the BB Cream on its own. The shade in which I chose was the Medium to Dark Shade as my skin tone is kinda in the middle. The Cream itself glides on to your skin so easy and the coverage is amazing, it basically leaves a clear and smooth complexion. It also conceals brilliantly and it also offers 24 hour skin hydration along with Sun Protection of SPF 15 which i feel is perfect to wear throughout the whole of summer. Altogether I love this BB Cream, the words in which i write doesn't give this product full justice. I will say that this is the best BB Cream in which i have used on my skin down to the 24hr hydration, coverage and the lasting finish it gives.

Price: €2.99
Shop: lidl's 
Score: 10/10


Hawaiian Tropic Island Berry Lipgloss
On to my second favourite product for this month and it's this Hawaiian Tropic Island Berry Lipgloss which i received in July's Glossybox. This Lipgloss is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! 
The tropical scent smells delicious and would nearly transport you to a holiday spot in just one smell. Its a non sticky formula which provides 12 hour miniaturisation and it also contains SPF25 which protects your lips from those sun rays. I got to use this product a week ago as Ireland was hit with a mini heatwave and this product came in very handy, as it moisturised my lips and protected them all at the same time. So I sat back enjoying the sun knowing my skin and lips were protected from the sun!!

Price: €6.99
Score: 9/10


Lacura Renew Q10 Night Cream
My third favourite for the month of July is this Lacura Renew Q10 Night Cream from Aldi's. Now before i purchased this product I had heard quite a lot of good reviews about this Night Cream and i will be honest at first i was like "could it really be as good as some of the leading brands on the market that supply nightcreams"?? Well the answer was YES a hell of a lot better than most of the night creams on the market at this point in time!! 
This Renew Q10 Night Cream is amazing, it just glides on to the skin and absorbs really quick, also the smell is gorgeous and the texture is so soft when applying it to your skin and after!! And what is also amazing about this Cream is that it is super affordable at only €1.99 in all Aldi Stores, Now that I am heading into my thirties i want my skin to look and feel healthy, so by introducing some of the more advanced creams now this will help my skin along the way.

Price: €1.99
Shop: Aldi's
Score: 10/10


De Bruyere After Sun Lotion Monoi
Next up is this After Sun Lotion from De Bruyere, I recevied this product in my June Glossybox. This After Sun Lotion is enriched with Monoi (gardenia petals soaked in coconut oil) alongside vitamin E. I have used it a few times this month as Ireland had a couple of Hot Days, so I used this to calm my skin from sitting in the sun, it also hydrates and nourishes the skin. 
And not only does this After Sun calm your skin from sitting in the sun but it also prolongs your summer tan which is amazing!!  I love how this product is really smooth on the skin and leaves it feeling incredible soft. Also the smell of this product is amazing as it smells really fresh. I have loved using this product and no doubt I will be using it to prolong my tan!!!

Price  €9.48
Score: 9/10


Cien Eye Makeup Remover
My fifth favourite for the month of July is this Eye Makeup Remover which is from the Cien Beauty Range at Lidls. I bought this at the beginning of July and since then i have been using it everynight to remove my eye makeup. I find it quite difficult in removing stubborn eye makeup such as eye shadows, mascara and eyeliner. 
But since using this makeup remover my evening routine is a lot more quicker and easy to take off my makeup especially the products i use on my eye area. This remover is infused with lotus flower and silk, it removes makeup in minutes to leave your eye area incredible soft and smooth with no irritation at all. It also leaves your eye area feeling nourished and refreshed. If you haven't tried it yet i would defiantly recommend you do as it is brilliant stuff.

Price: €1.99
Shop: lidl's
Score: 10/10


Blank Canvas F20 Flat Brush
My last favourite for the month of July is this F20 Flat Brush from Blank Canvas. I received this in July's Glossybox and I have to honestly say this has been my favourite item from any Glossybox that I have received. This Short, Dense Synthetic Fibres make this brush ideal for applying liquid, cream or powder makeup. 
For me I have decided to use this brush as a powder brush for applying my favourite translucent or loose powder to my face. I do think that i might change it over to been a foundation brush as i feel it could act well as been a stippling brush in which i think it would give a very nice flawless look to my makeup. I absoultly love this brush especially the colour been pink because my favourite colour is already pink!!

Price: €11.95
Score: 10/10

Altogether I have loved using these products throughout the month of July and I hope to even use them more throughout this month as well.

July Glossybox 2016!!

Hello my Lovelies,

I hope you are all having a lovely day, how was everyone's weekend I hope you all had a fab one. I decided to go see the Bray Air Display which was held down on the Seafront in Bray County Wicklow, it was a brilliant day and the atmosphere was amazing!!

For today's post I'm going to share with you all July's Glossybox, this month is all about Summer and the products in which are in this months box all has that summer ring to them.
This months box is just a standard pink box.
We then have the Editorial Piece which is from Editorial Director Evie Leatham where she introduces this months box and the products. 
We also get a sneak peek of August Glossybox where we get a chance to choose one of four MUA Eyeshadow Palettes, i have chosen my one have you??
Now on to the products in this months box, and up first is this......


UTAN AND TONE NOURISHING NIGHT CREAM
So up first I'm going to start off with this Utan and Tone Nourishing Night Cream, this is the ultimate night cream that you will want to add to your collection as this has a gradual tan combined within the nourishing cream.
 This clever concoction combines all you need for a night cream, such as a thick hydrating hyaluronic acid, a cocktail of vitamins and potent anti-oxidants to help skin repair along with the golden colour you'd expect from a gradual tan. Also it won't stain your pillows and the odourless formula means you won't wake up to a biscuity tan smell in the mornings.

I am delighted to have received this product in this months box, it looks really good and interesting. And as i'm not a big fan of tanning my face in the sun, i will defiantly be using this as part of my night time routine this summer.

Price: £12.50


HAWAIIAN TROPIC ISLAND BERRY LIP GLOSS SPF25
Next up is this Hawaiian Tropic Island Berry Lip Gloss, this smells absolutely gorgeous with a lovely tropical scent off it. This is a non-stick formula that provides 12 hours miniaturisation, advanced UVA and UVB protection which means this is really all you need to perfect and, more importantly protect your lips from the harmful sun ray's.
Again this looks a really good product, and I will defiantly be using this as Ireland is going through a mini heat-wave at the minute and I do find that my lips tend to get really dry when sitting out in the sun so this will come in pretty handy along with its protection from the sun-ray's.

Price:£6.99


HAIRON DE-TANGLE BRUSH
Next is this De-Tangle Brush from Hairon, now this is most certainly a brush that i need in my life at the minute. If you don't already know i have really long thick hair which gets very tangley especially after i have washed it. 
So I was delighted when i opened this months box and seen this inside. So this ergonomically designed brush fits into the palm of your hand to carefully de-tangle wet hair without snagging and tugging. 
It's also great for natural hair extensions that need a gentle touch and will keep dry hair tamed too, I also feel this would be a perfect sized brush to fit in your handbag when your out and about!!

Price: £6.99

**OFFER** Visit hairon.com to receive 30% off your next purchase, just enter the code: GLOSSY, valid until the 30th of August 2016!!


ICONA MILANO EMOTION ALLOWED MASCARA
Up next i received this Emotion Allowed Mascara from Icona Milano, So whether you are looking to spend your holidays in the city or by the beach this mascara is the one to be wearing on your lashes as it is water, sweat and humidity resistant making it a faultless choice for any occasion. 
The intense colour gives lashes a bold look and the rich, creamy formulation is buildable so you can define lashes during the day and create an amped up, false-lash effect for a gorgeous night-time look.

I really am looking forward to trying this mascara out, for some reason i get really excited when i get the chance of trying out a new mascara. I love mascara's that work to give a bold/false lash look to your lashes, especially if your heading out on a night on the town.

Price £13.04


BLANK CANVAS F20 FLAT BRUSH
The last item out of the July Glossybox is this Blank Canvas F20 Flat Makeup Brush. I was absolutely trilled when i opened this months box and seen this inside it was like all my Christmas's had came at once, I have been wanting to try out this brush for ages so i'm delighted to have now got the chance to do so. 
The short, dense synthetic fibres make this brush ideal for applying liquid, cream or powder makeup. What I love about this brush is that it is so soft and i feel it would be ideal as a stippling brush to apply my foundation to my face. 
I also love the colour of the brush too as its my favourite colour. Altogether I'm looking forward to trying out this brush no doubt i will love it!! 

Price: £11.95

**OFFER**
Visit blankcanvascosmetics.com to receive 30% off your next purchase, just enter the code: BLANKCANVASGB. Valid until the 31st of July 2016!!

Overall I am delighted with this months box and I can't wait to try out this amazing products!!

A Review on my Favourite Gosh Products!!

Hello my Lovelies,

Welcome to today's post, I hope you area all having a lovely day, For today's post I am going to share with you all this Review on some of my Favourite Gosh Products. I have always been a huge fan of Gosh Cosmetics, from their Foundation to the Nail Polishes and Lipsticks.
I have had a passion for their brand as they offer a wide selection of products such as Cosmetics, Fragrances and Face Care Products along with many more. What I really love about "Gosh" is that their product range enables me to find the precise products that matches not only my natural skin tone but my style too.

Nowadays there is so many different beauty trends such as styles and make-up looks that women like myself try to achieve, so by choosing "Gosh Cosmetics", i personally feel that it enables me to find the precise products in which match my completion and my style.  I also feel that "Gosh Cosmetics captures all the new beauty trends such as new ideas for new products and what the customer needs or looks for in a product.

They also look to future trends and how they can take different ideas and create really exciting new products. I also love how "Gosh" Products are fashionable, high-quality and are at great prices. I feel this brand of makeup is amazing and if any of you readers reading hasn't already tried out products from the "Gosh" Range, i would defiantly recommend you do!!

 Now on to the products in which i have selected for my review. I have quite a good few products from the Gosh Range now in my ever growing collection of makeup and beauty product, but i have selected a few to review here today on the blog.

To find out the Gosh products in which has made it in to my review then just keep reading and if you want to purchase any of the Gosh Products in which i'm about to mention, then please visit there website here: http://www.gosh.ie/


GOSH BB CREAM ALL-IN-ONE (FOUNDATION, PRIMER & MOISTURISER)

So up first I'm going to start off with this Gosh BB Cream, which is in the shade 01 Sand. This is a amazing product with it been an 'All-in-One' which consists of Foundation, Primer and Moisturiser. 
This has got to be one of the most innovative BB Creams particularly when it comes to colour, offering five shades ranging from very pale to very dark, with a colour adaptive formula. What is also great about this BB Cream is it also contains anti-ageing phytosan, SPF 15 and is water resistant, making it holiday and rain friendly. 

I am a huge BB Cream fan as its the most perfect product to wear as a day look or can simply make a look completed especially for these hot summer day's!!
The formula is thick creamy formula and it is also water based so it has a smooth glide across the skin and a flawless finish that doesn't accentuate drier areas or pores. It also lasts really well on the skin and feels lovely and soft when applied. It blends really well into the skin given an even coverage, The coverage is so much better than what i would have expected, I really find this BB Cream been more than a tinted moisturiser, I would describe it more as a light coverage foundation. This really felt like having foundation on and it was good enough to wear even alone, well along with a little bit of concealer and blush.
Although I have normal skin, i really feel that this type of BB Cream from Gosh would be ideal for any type of skin including dry skin too as the formula would work and last on the skin.

What I like about it:
- Doesn't feel like your wearing too much Makeup
- Light Coverage
- Moisturises my face

What I don't like about it: 
- Its smell (it doesn't last very long throughout the day)
- All shades available are pink toned.

Over all what makes this BB Cream my favourite one is definelty its finish, it doesn't really look like i'm wearing any kind of makeup and in combination with my Gosh BB Skin Perfecting Kit, it just looks like I've got naturally perfect skin.

GOSH MATT DUO EYESHADOW (004 BLUE MOON)


I do love a good Matt Eyeshadow and I firmly believe there aren't enough available from budget brands, so I am very happy with these duo's. 
Matt Eyeshadow's are great for adding colour intensity and debt, and I love to use them on the eyelids in amongst the crease.The Eyeshadow Duo have a matte texture and has amazing colour pigmentation. I also love the beautiful colour combination which is also long lasting. 
I love trying out different looks such as day and night time looks using these two shades, for a day look i like to use the lighter shade and apply a dusting of colour on to my eyelids and then blending it into the crease of my eye. For a night-time look i like to use both the lighter and darker shades, I then apply the lighter shade on to my eyelid and i then take a smokey eye brush and add some of the darker shade to the crease and corner of my eye. I then take a blending brush and blend the shades together to create a smokey night-time look.
What I like about it:
-The two shades contained in both duo's are co-ordinated beautifully allowing to achieve a minimal natural yet very flattering eye-look.

- The eye shadow's are completely matt without being chalky

- When applied to the eyelids, they feel silky smooth and seamlessly with great staying power throughout the day and night.


What I don't like about it:

- There could be a few more shades available in the duo's.

Finally as they are amazingly soft, it is necessary to be careful when transferring colour from the compacts onto an applicator or brush to minimise fall out. Once you have succeeded in getting your colour on, the results are however stunning.

GOSH VELVET TOUCH LIPSTICKS

Next up is these Velvet Touch Lipsticks, I am a huge lover of Lipsticks especially the Velvet Touch Range as they give intense colour and is long lasting throughout the day and night.
The shades in which i have been using for well over a couple of months now are 60 Lambada and 150 Kitten Pink, all of the two shades are a cream finishes with no glitter running through them, They are extremely smooth, so much that they feel like they melt on your lips when you have applied them,

60 Lambada
I adore Red Shades, so its no wonder i have included this shade in my review, The Gosh Lambada Shade is a bright bold red, its also silky soft and glides on with such ease, It also feels light and moisturising on the lips yet it has unbelievable pigment levels. In terms of wear, this lasts for up to 4-5 hours before starting to wear off.


150 Kitten Pink

This most defiantly is a shade for wearing on your lips through Summer, This gorgeous Kitten Pink shade just glides on to the lips given them a dash of colour, Its also a creamy formula which nourishes and moisturises the lips and again its long lasting.

All together these two lipsticks are brilliant from the Velvet Touch Range. They area long lasting and the pigments of colour is amazing. Personally i love how the lipsticks glides on and how it moisturises the lips as well all at the same time.

What I like about them: 
-Long lasting colour day and night
-Intense colour
- Creamy formula and protects the lips

What I don't like about them:
- I love everything about the 'Velvet Touch Lipsticks' so i don't have anything bad to say about the lipsticks.

GOSH BB SKIN PERFECTING KIT (02 MEDIUM) 

The final Gosh Product in which i have been loving is this BB Skin Perfecting Kit. I love a good concealer kit, I also love trying new ones too, as i'm always searching for an amazing product to mask my dark circles and any spots that I may have. 
When I tried this Gosh BB Skin Perfecting Kit i was amazed as to how good it really was, this kit not only Conceals but allows you to Contour and Highlight the different areas of your face.
This is the one concealer kit in which i can say WORKED!! This concealed any dark areas/spots/blemishes on my skin straight away and kept them concealed right throughout the day and night, Also with this kit you can contour your face with some of the light and darker shades, I like to go for a natural contour look and with the shades available i can achieve that overall natural look along with adding some of the Highlight to my face to really complete the look.
As you can see this nifty kit is a small compact with three pans in it. One for a light conceal/contour, one for a darker conceal/contour and a highlighter. Its a really small compact and is ideal to have in your makeup collection but most of all to keep in your makeup bag when your out and about.
What I like about it:
-Its formula and consistency
-Small and Compact

What I don't like about it:
-The highlight is a little too dark and would need to be a lot lighter.
