GOSH BB Cream: Espresso Review & Swatch

Now I must admit, I was a bit tardy for the party when it came to BB creams as I thought it was just another quick trend that’ll pass quickly and besides, I could hardly find any in my shade. However that all changed a few days ago when I purchased GOSH’s BB cream. Now, I’m a huge fan of GOSH’s lipsticks so I was hoping that this would transcend into their face range too.

I’m someone who prefers a light/mid coverage when it comes to foundation, so I’m pleasantly surprised with the texture of the cream as it is very light and goes on really smoothly. I’ve been using it on it’s own and it seems to cover up fine lines (I know i’m only 23 but i SWEAR I can see ’em start to come in!) and gives a very ‘just woke up in the middle of the meadow’ dewey look which I love!
Espresso is the darkest shade in the range
The cream stayed on for about a good 9-10 hours before I felt I had to touch up with some powder, It does get a bit messy when applying with hands so I use a stippling brush to highlight the areas of my face. As BB creams go, I can’t really compare it to anything else as this is my first one, but I’m now a convert. I shall be buying a couple more now seeing as I can foresee this being empty within the next month!

    It's great to finally see a BB cream for darker skin! xx

  • That's really pretty!

  • A bit tempted to give this a try as I've steered clear from BB creams all the while too. I've heard mixed reviews on the new Sleek ones that are supposed to cater to WOC. Great post anyways ..x
