Review: Gosh Forever Eyeshadow Sticks

14 October 2014

gosh forever eyeshadow stick reviewgosh forever eyeshadow stick reviewgosh forever eyeshadow stick reviewgosh shadow sticksI don’t know about you but I was never one of these people who was particularly bothered about using eyeshadow sticks on the ‘mobile lid’. But these Gosh Forever Eyeshadow Sticks hurled themselves into my life and my mobile lids and I haven’t looked back. These sticks of shimmery joy are extremely creamy, extremely pigmented and extremely wearable. And my love for them is extreme.

I picked up the shades ‘Light Copper’ (which is clearly more of a goldy-bronze shade) and the unimaginatively-named ‘Brown’ which is so much more than a bog standard brown. Swatched, they look much more shimmery than they translate on the eyes which is good news if you like to keep it subtle. In the photos, I did blend mine out but if you layer it on you can get a much bolder look.

I do find that as the day goes on, these Gosh Forever shadow sticks don’t crease too badly at all, but the shimmer does wear off. Just try to avoid touching your eyes when you pop these on.

I like to use these as both eyeshadows and eye liners – the lighter colour gives an intense inner corner highlight, and the darker one is fab smudged into the lower lash line. They can also be used as eyeshadow bases but this is something I’m yet to try.

Good news for the more slack-minded – these have a wind-up mechanism so don’t need sharpening. Fine if you plan on using these as eyeshadows but sad if you use them as eyeliners, although a brush could be used. Potentially laborious though.

Gosh Forever Eyeshadow Sticks come in an array of beautiful, wearable colours and I for one, can’t wait to get my paws on them

Available from Superdrug at £5.99 each.

Review: Gosh Boombastic Mascara

16 July 2014

gosh boombastic reviewI mentioned Gosh Boombastic Mascara briefly in my June Favourites but seeing as I’ve used it every day for a month I thought it deserved to come out of the shadows and be publicly showered with compliments.

Horrible name aside, along with bothersome mental images of Shaggy, I’ve been entangled in a web of lust with this mascara. You can see the transformation my lashes are obviously enjoying (sorry about the poor quality of the before photo), going from shy and retiring to loud and proud. The formula is a tiny bit on the gloopy side so you need to wipe off the blob on the end (not nearly as vulgar as it sounds). The tiny, short plastic bristles really grip your lashes and help you get right in the roots so lashes are nicely coated. Because the formula is quite thick, it helps hold the curl, and I don’t experience any dreaded flaking. In the photo, I’ve put on one coat but sometimes I do two. A bit of clumping does occur if you’re too hasty between coats but I personally don’t mind spidery lashes now and again. Removal is a doddle too. I’ve had this tube for a couple of months and it hasn’t dried out or changed much in that time so it’s a big thumbs up all round.gosh boombastic mascara reviewIf you’re a fan of Max Factor False Lash Effect, I implore you try this. Even if you’re not a fan, I implore you to try this. Be warned though, it took me a couple of weeks to track this down and even then there was only one left on the shelf, so if you see it, buy two. All in all, a great mascara and definitely one to repurchase.gosh boombastic mascara review
