REVIEW - GOSH Cosmetics' New Core Products - Eyes and LipsTuesday, November 22, 2016
This Fall, GOSH Cosmetics launched a bunch of new products for their core line and keeping up to date with the matte and highlighting trends! Because they launched quite a bit of products, I'm going to cover eye and lip products in this post.
First up is the new 9 Shades To Be Cool in Copehagen ($20) eyeshadow palette. This palette features nine matte shadows inspired by the Nordic Lights. The nine shadows are cool toned and range from soft nudes to black. These shadows are quite pigmented and don't provide that chalky texture mattes sometimes have.
Next are the Forever Matt Eye Shadow Stick ($14) in Nougat // Twisted Brown// Dark Brown // Dark Grey. I am in LOVE with these twist up shadow sticks! They're so pigmented and creamy, providing the easiest application ever and they're also waterproof. I also love that they're matte and have a finish similar to a matte lipstick. My favourite way to apply them is near the lash line and smudging it out to create a soft smokey eye. The below swatches are for Nougat and Dark Grey.
Onto the brows! I love me some brow gel because it's so much easier to use than a pomade or pencil. Thankfully, GOSH released the Brow Sculpting Fibre Gel ($17) in Nutmeg // Chestnut. These brow gels are made with Bladderwrack seaweed which contains high levels of antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins and minerals - so they are quite nourishing for the hairs. The fibres in the gel build volume and thickness while the tint adds colour to fill the brows.
GOSH's Giant Pro Liner ($16) is similar to essence's Easy to Use Jumbo Eyeliner, but I find the GOSH one to actually be easier to use. The brush tip holds it's shape without being too stiff, allowing both a thin and thick line of application. The water-based formula is very pigmented and doesn't apply too wet, so not much time is needed for drying. *This eyeliner is swatched with the lipsticks
The Lash Sculpting Fibre Mascara ($17) is also made with Bladderwrack seaweed to help nourish the lashes, along with the fibres to add some extra oomph to create longer and fuller lashes. The round Tynex brush claims to be optimally shaped to create volume and length. This mascara is not waterproof though, which may or may not be a critical factor on your mascara check list.
Last up are the Velvet Touch Matt Lipstick ($14) in Matt Nougat // Mat Rose // Matt Cinnamon // Matt Cranberry. Made with natural bee, carnauba, and candelilla wax, these lipsticks and creamy, pigmented and super hydrating. Although these lipsticks are labelled matte, in my opinion they have closer to a demi-matte finish. The below lipstick swatches are for Matt Nougat and Matt Cranberry.
Some other products that launched alongside these ones are the:
Rebel Eyes Long Wear Volume Mascara ($17)
Eyebrow Pencil ($16) - Mahogany
Velvet Touch Lip Liner ($10) - Nougat // Raisin
