So, let’s talk GOSH cosmetics! Have you girls got up close and personal with their stuff yet? The Danish brand’s exclusive to Edgars and Red Square and totally underrated in that they offer some seriously cool things at very good prices, namely their Kiss Me lip balms (a lot like Clinique’s Chubby Stick), Light N’ Shine Lipgloss (there’s a light in the cap so you can see what’s you’re doing in da club) and brow kit.
Currently, the brand’s running a promo – if you spend R399 or more on GOSH products, you’ll get a free mini back pack containing their Boombastic mascara, lip lacquer, Forever eyeshadow stick and a sachet of Good Morning cream.
Between you and me, the back pack aint my vibe but it went down well with the boys at the office.
Of all the bag’s freebies, my favourite item’s the shadow stick. It literally glides onto your skin like satin and the pigmentation’s amazing. You can then use your finger to blend it out, just as you would a cream shadow. Then, once set, it really does stay put, however, if you use it with a eye lid primer you can basically tattoo it your lid.
I’m wearing it today but as a super sheer ‘office friendly’ wash which I achieved by creating a thick streep across my upper lash line. I then used my finger to blend it out and then blended it even further by using a MAC 217 brush to ‘wind screen wiper’ a little of The Body Shop Color Crush eye shadow in Champagne Kiss in my crease.
As for the Lip Lacquer, the shade is called Hot Lips, a mooi cherry kiss of a colour that goes on sheer, making it a lovely ‘day rooi‘ or ‘starter rooi‘. Texture-wise, it’s not tacky at all, so this means you’re going to spend a lot of time reapplying. If that’s something that doesn’t both you, the two of you might be friends.
Anyway, if you want le sak for yourself, you’re going to hit up the mall this weekend as the offer ends on the 16th.
