Ive noticed them in Superdrug. The colours are lovely, especially the nail varnish. They are expensive though, for Superdrug. Where is the brand from? is it new? has anyone tried them?

I don't know where its from, as such but I did buy a greys/silvers/charcoals eyeshadow compact which is pretty nice and a brow taming palette which is quite good (though I tend to default to my Benefit eyeshadow for that) but that's all I've had.

They had some quite good primers, but I only tested them on the back of my hand.

I just nipped out and bought a lipgloss its like a MAC one I had years ago that they stopped doing. It goes on lovely. £7.99 though. I always think of Superdrug as being as cheap as chips!

I've used their Nail polish and its fab, possibly the best quality one I've used. Especially the gold, silver ones. They quite often do 3for2 on them too.

I must go and look. Im looking for a goldfish colour.

bronzing/sparkling pearls are great.
gosh packaging looks like smashbox.

It does look smart next to the Barry M and Rimmel.

Eye liners are brillll, actually use them instead of eye shadow as there creamy and stay on great

If you fill out the survey on the back of the receipt, you can get 25% off - handy if you want to pick up a couple of things.

Eyeshadows aren't great but the polymer eyeliners are amazing.

I don;t like them - I think they are a bit pricey for what they are.

catinboots Thu 16-Jun-11 13:53:44

The waterproof eyeshadow sticks are amazing

Better than any expensive brand. And I'm a make-up junkie. They last all day.

katkitya Thu 16-Jun-11 15:30:59

Ive never warn eyeshadow sticks before, arent they abit harsh?

catinboots Thu 16-Jun-11 16:02:31

no - they're soft and creamy. Almost like a lipstick texture, but not greasy.

Pootles2010 Thu 16-Jun-11 16:06:17

I bought a lipstick/stain felt tip pen thingie - I hate it. Its truly awful. Colour is horrid, doesn't go on evenly, just nasty.

Their silver nail polish is really hard to get off even if you try.

the Extreme Art eyeliners are amazing and i won't use anything else; they're the only thing to stay put on me (very watery eyes)...(have every single colour, and stock up when they do 3 for 2's!)love all their range (apart from mascara and blusher which have never tried), their foundation is also the best i've tried. Packaging looks a bit like MAC but in my opinion, the products are far superior..i've never had a good result with any MAC products. I don't think Gosh is pricey at all for the quality.
and no,i dont work for MAC or Superdrug!

lololizzy Fri 17-Jun-11 00:54:02

Nippy, isn't that discount just for Superdrug's own brands?

katkitya Fri 17-Jun-11 12:09:51

I think it is their own brand.

bananamonkey Fri 17-Jun-11 12:48:41

Can I second the eyeliners, they are the best ones I've ever used (better than my mac powerpoint pencil), go on really easily and they don't smudge. They are often 3 for 2.

katkitya Fri 17-Jun-11 20:10:35

Its not something I really wear. I would just stick to charcoal. What colours to you buy and do you wear them upper or lower?

ItsNotRocketSurgery Fri 17-Jun-11 20:28:34

Just bought some of the eyeliners on your recommendations!

Right now it is "buy 2 things get a free nail varnish"

katkitya Fri 17-Jun-11 21:40:35

Do you like the eyeliners? what colours did you get?

I do like their colour selection for nail varnish.

I think I will be going down there tomorrow.

mippy Fri 17-Jun-11 22:18:04

I thought they were a separate brand too, but no, when I got some of their stuff a while ago they took off a full 25%. 3 for 2 plus 25% off plus Beautycard points = practically free!

gracehedley Fri 17-Jun-11 22:21:39

katkitya, this lip gloss, is the colour noticeable? Just started another thread asking for lip gloss with good colour as I was trying them out today and could hardly notice any colour.

katkitya Fri 17-Jun-11 22:22:09

cant you only use it once though?
