GOSH Touch Up Concealer.

One product I always seem to be attracted to is concealer. I can be more than happy with the one I'm currently using, but while browsing make up I'm always drawn to concealers and think to myself "Hmm wonder if this one will work any better". I do unfortunately suffer with dark circles, so concealer is a must for my under eye area.

The recent addition to my little concealer collection is GOSH's Touch Up Concealer which retails at £7.



 I normally always seem to walk past the GOSH stand in Superdrug, I only have 2 products from the brand which is a Lipstick and an Eye Liner, but while out shopping last week, I went for a look at the GOSH concealers after having a look at most of the other brands, testing a few and being a bit unsure of the shades. After swatching the lightest shade available which is number 1, I could tell it was going to be an exact colour match, plus I also liked the brush applicator.



It's a liquid concealer but not a thick liquid as I have experienced with some concealer in the past. It applies nice and light and and blends so well without the need of any harsh pulling or tugging on my delicate under eye area. I normally just use one brush stroke under my eyes then blend it in and around.  I find it covers so well and looks so natural without looking cakey as concealers can sometimes appear. it also doesn't settle into any of my creases or fine lines. It does a great job of concealing my under eye circles and also making my under eye area look a lot brighter. Shade 1 is a perfect match for my skin tone, although with only 2 shades available this concealer sadly isn't going to work for people with a darker skin tone. For me this would be the only downside with the product. I can definitely see myself re-purchasing this product in the future and would easily recommend it.

  1. Great review hun! I'm after a new concealer and like the look of this one. I usually walk straight past the GOSH counter too in Superdrug, it's always such a mess, maybe I need to may it more attention in future xx

  2. I love this too! I swear mine was shade 7 though lol. Unless I read it wrong and it was 1? They definitely had more than 2 shades when I went to my local store. I'm heading into Superdrug next week so I'll have a look :) xox

  3. I'm defintely going to get my hands on some of this.. I can't believe I've never tried it before! I've been on a 'i-must-find-the-perfect-concealor' quest for a few years now to no avail. I had THE most perfect one from Avon..and stocked up on it cos I was worried they'd stop carrying it..which they did..and now I'm still searching for a replacement :(

  5. Great review Jo! I'm always drawn to concealers, too... I think it's the promise of a perfect complexion that makes them appeal so much! Deep inside I always think that if you have perfect skin, you need very little else to look stunning, so concealer and blush are my two favourite cosmetics ;)

    It's my first post here - hello! :)

  6. Oh I'm tempted now I have read your review of it.
    I would love to find something that covers well but doesn't look cakey and heavy.

  8. I love the little brush applicator, I'm not too keen on the sponge/lipgloss applicator! It sounds great, I'll have to try it out! I use Mac's Studio Finish at the moment and it's starting to look a little cakey. Thanks for the recommendation!
