PETA-approved, pocket friendly and yet top quality, there’s lots to love about Danish beauty brand GOSH Cosmetics (exclusive to Edgars and Red Square). I was recently sent a bunch of their goodies to play with and, for me, the stars of the show have to be their Forever Shadow eye shadow sticks (R160).
If you’re a regular reader you’ll know I’ve mentioned my love of these guys before. The pigmentation is great, they glide on like a dream and then stay put. If you’ve got oily-combo skin like me, however, use a primer beforehand. This way, whatever look you create will sit tight from dusk til dawn with zero creasing.
Wanna get swatchy?
When you draw with them the colour’s pretty intense but they all soften up when you blend them out.
Of all the hues, these guys are my favourites…
The mascara I’m wearing is GOSH Catchy Eyes mascara (R155). The name is pretty apt as the plastic short bristle wand does a good job of grabbing and separating each and every lash and, because the formula’s a bit elastic, it extends a bit too. A nice pick for anyone who likes a very defined look.
I’m also glad I got to try GOSH Primer Plus Illuminating Skin Perfector (R255). While it contains silicone, it’s not riddled with it so it didn’t aggravate my oily T-panel, so I’d happily recommend it to anyone with a combination skin type. Also, I like that it’s got a slight tint to it so there’s zero chance you’ll end up looking ashy. (I know primers can be an ‘ish’ for those with darker skin tones if they leave a cast.) Lastly, while it says ‘illuminating’, don’t you worry, chica, there’s zero sparkle going on over here! It merely diffuses the look of fine lines and pores and makes for a super smooth foundation application.
I was given three lipsticks (R140 each) too.
The matte colours go on smoothly, don’t feel like they’ll dry out your lips or separate into lines. (Anyone who’s tried a rubbish matte lippie will know exactly what I mean by that.) The non-matte nude lippie is sheer but buildable with a creamy-finish.
Anyway, let’s get a GOSH face on, shall we? My first look is a daytime one.
And here’s an evening one…
