I went to get another Gosh mascara that gave me awesome lashes years ago, and found out that the drug store chain is getting rid of Gosh. Everything was 50% off. I found the one I wanted and also decided to try Provocateur. It is also awesome. It gives nice long lashes and works well as a top coat over ones that volumize but don't add length.

I think this is a great choice of foundation for people with dry skin as it does not look cakey or cling to dry patches. The coverage is buildable too which I think is great as I can apply a small amount for work etc. but then apply more for a big night out rather than having to have two separate foundations.I would say this foundation has a satin finish which I love because I am not a fan of matte foundations (especially with having dry skin). I love a dewy look and for me this foundation does just that, for me it is a 'your skin but better' foundation. It lasts quite a long time on my face, I usually apply around 7:30am before work (without primer) and do not have to reapply. It definitely fades after say 9 hours or so, however it is consistent rather than leaving patches of foundation on your face. It is extremely lightweight and feels breathable which I love. Great value for money and one bottle usually lasts me around 3 months with almost daily application. The only con I would say is there is an extremely limited colour selection, and so people with darker skin tones may not be able to use this product- but maybe the colour selection will expand someday!

I went into Shoppers Drug Mart to kill time while my car was having an oil change and noticed that all GOSH products were 50% off. I asked the clerk about this and learned that the line is being discontinued/replaced with something else. While I was glad for the savings, I was saddened that GOSH - a brand I like for many of its eye pencils/shadow sticks - would soon be nothing but a memory. I picked up backups for a few of my "HG" eyeliners and figured I would try one of these shadow sticks (I'd tried a similar product of theirs years ago as a dupe for MAC Shadesticks and found it very good). I think I paid $6 for this stick, which is nicely packaged and is a twist up. For a Metallic product, it is really nice - it's quite subtle so it isn't over the top for daytime. It's a lovely cool darker brown (looks darker on my eyes than when I swatched it on my hand) and lasts all day without creasing or fading. It's a very good base for shadows like MAC Tempting or Nars Kalahari....really enhances and gives them depth. The only thing keeping me from getting a backup for this is my concern that it might dry up over time, as these sorts of products often do. But I may go back to check out some other colours because at these prices, it's pretty hard to resist. Canadian makeup lovers, check out your local SDM to see if you can get this or any of your go-to GOSH products before they are gone.

*This review is for the banana version as a setting powder, not a primer (Gosh recommend only using this as a primer if you use mineral makeup as a foundation. If you are using a liquid foundation, this should be applied as a setting powder*I have come to realise that, having tried three loose powders, they are not for me. I find them too drying; they accentuate flakes I didn't realise I had and also have a tendency to highlight large pores - particularly on my nose. Unfortunately, as a setting powder, this product made my foundation 'crack' towards the end of the day too - something I have never experienced before. That aside, I love the colour of this and it photographs beautifully. The packaging is very clever incorporating a twist-sifter mechanism so you never 'lose' any loose powder. There is no talc in the formulation and Gosh pride themselves on cruelty, paraben and perfume free makeup which is always a bonus. Overall, it's not for me but if you like a loose powder and don't find them overly drying, this is a good, reasonably priced option.PROSFabulous colourPhotographs beautifullyExcellent packagingCruelty, paraben and perfume free formulation - no talc!CONSDrying (all loose powders are on me...time to switch back to pressed, I think!)Accentuated flakes on my skin I didn't know I hadMade liquid foundation 'crack' as day progressedHighlighted large pores**UPDATE**I'm not sure whether the Maybelline mascara or this powder is to blame but since using this I have developed a sore reaction on the skin around my eyes. Blotchy, red, tender, slightly swollen...I look like I've aged about 75 years. Doesn't affect my rating as I didn't like the product on my skin anyway, but just a heads up to anyone who is sensitive or prone to allergies. Needless to say I'm having to go makeup-free to see if the reaction clears up.

First review on here, but this eyeliner is amazing - for the price and quality! Goes on very smoothly, and only smudges slightly by the end of the day (that's every eyeliner on me except the Milani one, which stays on even after snorkeling but is a pain to remove and doesn't go on as smoothly). I actually walked into Sephora one day looking for face products and the lady helping me asked me which of their eyeliners I was using (she was surprised when I said it was from Shoppers!). Pretty much a dupe for the Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner. If you're in Canada, Shoppers is currently having a 50% off all GOSH Cosmetics so you could get this for $6 CDN.
