Golly GOSH, I spy a MAC Dupe!

Aloha Bloggerinos,

You can only imagine my glee on boxing day when I saw that Superdrug were doing a a 3 for 2 deal across all cosmetics. I immediately headed to the GOSH counter, because I've been hankering for a few bits from there for a while.

I have always been really pleased with any gosh products I've had. To be honest, I don't know why I don't have more because it's always been such a pleaser!

So in my little spree I picked up these Light 'n' Shine Lipglazes for £7.99 each (I also bought a coloured eyeliner to make up my 3 for 2) because they reminded me soooo much of the MAC Dazzleglasses which are about £14 a pop. These lipglosses aren't new and I'm sure other people have noticed the similarity but I wanted to have my say anyway :)

I bought shades 04 and 05 which are a light pink and purply shade respectively. The pink is a blue based hue with darker pink and silver sparkles and the purple is a fuchsia colour with blue and gold sparkles. On the lips, if I were to tell you it was a MAC Dazzleglass, I'd be very surprised if you doubted it. And come to think of it, if you did, it would mean you had an unhealthy knowledge of MAC and were a bit of a saddo. Like me.

Both glosses are not sticky but lovely and sheeny, something I do wish MAC would sort out, the Dazzleglasses can be like shmearing treacle on your lips, and have excellent staying power. I don't usually expect must lastage from a gloss, but these did surpass my expectations- hurrah!

As always with GOSH products, the packaging is smashing. Each lipglaze has a little mirror on the side and when you pull out the application wand, 2 tiny LED lights turn on so applying in dark places (I mean dark locations of a room by the way, not on yourself- ooerrr) is a doddle. At first I thought it was a bit gimmicky and something I wouldn't use but I went out for a few drinks with Mattmoo (non alchofrolic before you get shirty) and it was really handy!

I'm also pretty impressed with the wand. My usual fav is a doefoot applicator and sometimes find that these little synthetic brushy jobbies are a bit messy, but so far, so good.

All in all these are something that I am really pleased with and will definitely be branching out into the other available colours. Have you tried these or are you strictly a MAC gal?

Toodlepip!

PS.

Here's the husband and I on that night out. How I don't look pregnant I do not know, I feel like a beached whale and have taken to waddling rather a lot-urgh! Do note my sparkletastic lips :)

  1. Oooh they are lovely and sparkly aren't they? I've never thought about buying the Gosh lipglosses, I must give them a look.

    By the way you're looking gorgeous in your picture with your hubs and not preggers at all, but I'll look forward to a peek of the bump once you do! xx

  6. I would def try these! If you like the whole light thing, but a doe-foot applicator, try the Collection2000 Hotlights - they have a doe-foot applicator and the light and mirror, and are actually very very good :) Not as sparkly though!
