I few weeks ago I purchased some Gosh cosmetics as well as others. Today I’m doing a basic review of the Gosh cosmetics. To be honest, I’m a bit of a snob when it comes to makeup and skin care. I really don’t like to buy cheap makeup/skin care, except for Korean brands! I never heard of Gosh cosmetics, but some of the products looked nice, and I wanted to give it a try. I was very skeptical, and well I think I was right to. Because half of them I like and the other half I absolutely hate! Alright, on to the review!
Quattro Eye Shadow Q 22 Driftwood
Velvet Touch Eye Liners #001 Bluemoon & #014 Pink Darling
Intense Eye Liner Pen #06 Blue
Let’s begin with the Quattro Eye Shadow Q 22 Driftwood…
A neutral brown eye shadow palette with a very light white-beige, light brown-champagne, medium brown and dark brown.
I love neutral eye shadows. Most of my eye shadows are all shades of brown, champagne, and golds. So I had to try this one. It’s a very soft texture, and I like it. It applies on well, and as far as I can tell it stays on the whole day. I find the light beige a bit too on the white for me. But since I don’t have many whites (just one actually from MAC), it’s nice to have an addition. I have been using this palette often. I think I’ll probably use it for a while, until I get sick of it.
It does come with that eye shadow puff thing (OMG I don’t even know what it’s called), and probably because I never use those. I’ve been using my regular eye shadow brushes to apply.
On to the swatches!
Moving on to the Velvet Touch Eye Liners!
I love these! They had several shades to choose from, and I chose the Pink Darling and Blue Moon. I have no idea why they named it blue moon because it’s really a green. I love the texture of these, and they’re very soft. And don’t “crumble” if you know what I mean. They glide on and the quality is great.
They are labeled waterproof, and I’ve had no issues with the Blue Moon fading, it for sure stays on. I haven’t used the Pink Darling as an eye liner so I can’t really comment on how long lasting it is as an eye liner. I have been using it on my lower eye lid (not waterline), and it does stay on. But to be honest, I can’t remember if it faded or not.
With removing these, I use my regular Lancome eye make up remover, the Pink Darling comes off very easily, the Blue Moon takes a bit more of remover.
I’ve been using the Blue Moon as an eye liner, but over a black eye liner. Like this:
I did draw on the Blue Moon a few times over. For less of a color over the black liner, you can just draw on once or twice.
How gorgeous are these!? I’m going to pick up some other colors. I don’t think I look good in bright colored eye shadows, or maybe I love neutral colors too much. But I do like how I can have fun with a little color with these velvet eye liners. I like how they’re shiny, and not glittery! I absolutely hate glitter liners… So yeah if you’re looking for quality but cheap liners, try these. They have different colors, and I think they have it in black as well.
Now on to the Intense Eye Liner…
Intense Eye Liner Pen 06 Blue
This is the face I make when it comes to this eye liner: I know it says waterproof, but does it have to be make up remover & face wash proof as well?! I used two different eye make up removers with tons of cotton pads, and washing my face over and over. And it would not come off completely. To make it worse, my eye lids got so sensitive and red. Maybe that’s why it’s called Intense
It’s a liquid eye liner, and it’s much darker than the velvet liners. The application is easy and nice. The color is nice too. I would love to use it, but I do not want to go through the hassle and pain of removing it. Gosh needs to fix these! They did have other colors, but I will not buy or use!
On to the make up brush…
I walked into the cosmetics shop determined to walk out with some new brushes. But the only brushes they had was from Clinique. And I’ve already heard Clinique brushes are complete garbage (well until you wash them or something). So I was staring at the Gosh ones, and feeling the ones on display. I have no idea why I bought this one. Well… I thought it’s cheap and it won’t make a mark on my wallet, so for review purposes I bought it.
It is soft (not as soft as other brushes I have) and the bristles aren’t hard or anything. It feels soft on my arm, but when I’m using it on my face it feels a bit scratchy. I tested it with powder and bronzer. It didn’t do such a good job with powder, but with bronzer it was decent. But since I hate the way it feels on my facial skin, I don’t even want to bother with this. I haven’t tried washing it, but I’m pretty sure it will shed and bleed.
Hope someone finds this Gosh cosmetics reviews helpful.
