My other favs include the new Lip Oils (£7.49), which are formulated with the hero ingredient, sea buckthorn, as well as a blend of other super nourishing oils - not sticky at all like I expected either. They provide more hydration than a lip balm but the coloured shades (Raspberry and Sea Buckthorn pictured above) give a lovely wash of sheer colour - a great dupe for the Clarins lip oils that everyone adores. I think Sea Buckthorn (the muted orange) is going to become a staple in my routine as it's such a universal shade that goes with most everyday, natural lip colours. The Lip Oils also harmonise well with the new Velvet Touch Matte Lipstick shades (probably my favourite lipstick range in the drugstore and a great alternative to MAC), which include sweet tones of pinks and muddy browns: Matt Nougat, Matte Sweetness, Matte Smoothie (pictured above) and Matt Raisin.
Now the fun really does start to happen with the new Lumi Drops (£7.99) because, well, who doesn't love a good strobing sesh? No friend of mine (jokes, it's totes fine if that's not your thang). I think you either love or hate liquid highlighters, but I'm certainly all for them; I find they blend easier with other liquid base products and can be used to create both a subtle glow, or more of a statement strobe. These can also be mixed in with foundation to make your base extra luminous, which I can see myself doing more so in the summer. I find the dabbing motion works best for me, ensuring that I'm not sliding my foundation as I go.
One product that I have been using every day since it launched last year is the GOSH Primer Plus+ Hydrating Skin Perfector, so I was happy to see another addition to the line. The Illuminating Primer Plus+ Skin Perfector (£14.99) comes out a peachy pink shade, which I wasn't expecting at all, and is slightly thicker than the Hydrating version. Once warmed up on the skin, the product blends really nicely and leaves a tiny hint of colour - I am super pale and have dehydrated skin so it works wonders at colour correcting my skin while injecting a little bit of glow. I's definitely radiance boosting and diminishes dullness, that's for sure.
Completing this stellar line-up is the Rebel Eyes Mascara (£8.99), which is probably the only product in the collection I wasn't that fussed about. This is mainly because I'm not one to get excited over mascara due to having pretty terrible lashes in the first place; no mascara can work miracles if you have a shoddy base. Saying this, despite my initial reservations I actually quite like it, which is a surprise because I am also not a fan of plastic brushes. The curved wand lifts and lengthens my lashes (it's not really volumising if that's what you're after and layering it doesn't solve this) but nonetheless, it's a nice mascara for every day.
