GOSH Click 'n' Conceal

I tweeted the other day that even the bags under my eyes had packed their bags...I kid you not as I am seriously busy with work and events I am working a full time job as well as being a full time mum (roll in Sri Lanka in January is all I say!)

The one thing that I always do though is wear a bit of make up, especially bright red lipstick which has been my trademark and master of disguise for years.  People always comment how well I look as the eye is drawn to my red glossy lips rather than my haggard old eyes!  That's not to say I don't try and cover up my shadows, I am a massive fan of concealer and alternate between a cream and a liquid depending on how much coverage I need!

I was sent a tube of GOSH click 'n' conceal to try which was reminiscent of the Worlds best selling concealer Touche Eclat by YSL.  The difference being the price!  This is just £6.99 so very affordable.


Here's what they say:

" Boost skin radiance and wave goodbye to dark circles and blemishes and cheat your way to a flawless complexion this multi-purpose tube of magic can also be used to enhance cheek bones, the lip contour and highlight brows"

So, what do I think?

The consistency was great but the coverage was poor.  As a concealer I found that this didn't conceal shadows and it didn't last for very long at all.  I was sent the lightest colour to test but truth be told, I would have been better suited to the next shade up.  It didn't work as a concealer but never one to waste an opportunity, I decided to try this as a brow highlighter.  It was very easy to apply and gave a lovely shimmery effect, the trouble being it just didn't last.

How would I score?

Effectiveness:  3/10 Sadly, didn't cover these bags!
Packaging: Like all GOSH products, sleek and light 7/10
Does it do what it says on the tin: 3/10 better as a highlighter but not a good concealer

Overall Score: 13/30

This could be improved if the coverage lasted longer.  It's great that it is available in four colours but until the coverage is improved (or my bags aren't as haggard!) I am afraid I won't be buying it again.

Peace and Love

  1. I hardly ever use make-up...not because I think I look good au naturel, purely because I'm too lazy!! So it made a difference to my baggy eyes! Plus £6.99 is more than I've ever paid on make-up for myself...so it felt high end to my low expectations! hehe
