Liquid -GOSH -Foundation Plus +

This foundation does exactly what it says on the cover. It conceals and covers any blemishes or pigmentation and is great if you're looking for full coverage. It doesn't break me out, however I wouldn't recommend this to people with very oily skin. The consistency is quite thick and it has some moisturizing ingredients, so it makes skin look very shiny. I have to reapply a lot of powder throughout the day, as my skin tends to get oily. I have a very moisturizing face routine, because my skin is combination with very oily T-zone but also dry and flaking skin around my nose. While it doesn't accentuate the flaky parts of my face, this foundation doesn't work that well with too much moisturizer. I would advise to use a primer instead.
I'm not a big fan of the packaging though. You have to squish the bottle, to get the foundation out, which is quite impractical, since the consistency is quite thick and the shape of the bottle doesn't help either. A lot of times you can't get anything out of the bottle and then you push too hard and you spray yourself with make-up. Overall it's a good foundation for dry skin with a very smooth full coverage, but with packaging that is not very convenient.

Liquid -GOSH -X-ceptional wear liquid foundation

on 9/2/2018 4:50:00 AM

I bought this product from a local supermarket. I was looking for a cruelty-free foundation with a good price and as this foundation was suggested by many reviewers I decided to give it a try. The foundation is easy to put on, it's very silky and won't stay cakey. However, it is not the best choice for oily or acne-prone skin because it will get shiny quite quickly. In addition it did make my acne worse. In conclusion, it's probably a great product for dry or normal skin, but if you have oily or acne-prone skin I'd suggest to choose a different product.

Eye Shadow -GOSH -Forever Stick 02 Beige

on 8/11/2018 3:44:00 AM

The color was pretty, something like sparkly beige - gold. The formula looked patchy on my hooded eye lids, also it didn't mixed well with another products especially powders. Stick packaging was really convenient to use. Not sure if this product is still produced, but wouldn't purchase it anyway.


Eyeliner -GOSH -Extreme Art Eyeliner ] ] [DISCONTINUED]

Very hard to get hold of these days, as it has been discontinued. There's a small but ever-diminishing supply out there in the farthest reaches of eBay, and even then you run the risk of receiving one well past its use-by date.

This is one of the most waterproof & longwearing liquid liners I have ever tried. First came across it in my late teens as it was budget-friendly and easily found in larger Superdrug shops, I loved the metallic shades with the silver being my absolute favourite. It had a very thin, small brush so was tricky to use at first, plenty of little mistakes trying to draw a straight line, teenage me wasn't the best at using liquid liner. If I made a mistake the race was on to mop it up immediately with a cotton bud, or else that wonky line was going to stick around for the next 3 days.

It won't come off with just soap and water - you need a make-up remover designed to remove waterproof mascara, an oil-based or organic & aqueous dual phase remover. Without that, no amount of scrubbing or washing will shift it. This stuff could survive a nuclear bomb blast once dry. It does mean it has no margins for error when applying though, so it's not practical for daily school or work use as it takes me so long to apply in a neat enough way. While limited in its uses, it's a shame it was discontinued as it was so very longwearing and not expensive at all. Anyone found a closely matched replacement product yet?

Brows -GOSH -Defining Brow Gel

foto

I love this as my eyebrows are naturally quite flat - I have to pluck shape into them and then brush them up to avoid my brows looking like a straight line. This holds them in place for a decent length of time and the clear one can be used in conjunction with eyebrow pencils.
This brow gel isn't sticky and dries down fairly quickly without making my eyebrows look flaky. However, it does seem to run out pretty quickly and for a drugstore brow product it's on the pricer side - around £8-10 I think? You can buy this clear or coloured, and it's a decent dupe for Glossier boy brow.


Eyeliner -GOSH -Velvet Touch Eyeliner

These eyeliners are little gems, if you can get your hands on them! I've seen them in larger Superdrug stores but I don't think I've spotted them elsewhere.
They are waterproof gel-type eyeliners in pencil form, and come in a variety of colours. As is common with gel-type liners, as opposed to the softer powdery kohl types, they do run the risk of drying out over time - so make sure you buy one with the plastic wrap unopened and still in place covering the lid and the pencil. Older pencils will become hard and stiff and won't deposit colour even when warmed up and pressed firmly - so don't waste your money, make sure you get an unopened one.

I have had several over the years but my favourites are some of the more unusual colours - sea green, a shimmery teal, pretty petrol, a steely blue, and a shimmery violet one with a name I've forgotten. They are comparable to MAC eyeliners but cost a fraction of the price. Once on the lid, they generally stay put, although if you're like me with oily lids and partially hooded eyes, there might be some smudging at the end of the day. But used on the outer corners and waterline, they have good staying power.

The one thing I don't like is the pencil - it's a pain in the backside to sharpen as it's not like wood pencils, you need a bit more welly to rotate the thing hard enough to get the sharpener blade across it. But I can forgive that as they are good products, especially for the price. Mine last 18-24 months before the liner starts to harden and needs to be thrown out.

Powder -GOSH -Mineral Foundation Powder

I'll start by saying I have acne prone skin (I'm 29) this instantly made me feel like I was going to break out, and I did. The coverage is nice but it gets oily very very quickly. Next day I had three pimples pop up out of nowhere. I blamed it on my period and waited a week to try it again, same thing. I broke out badly. If you have any problems with acne I'd stay far away from this stuff. Nightmare powder

Lips -GOSH -Lip oil

I would've def repurchase if I will be able to find it... If you have always chapped dry lips you will love it!
Pros: cheap; very hydrating; doesn't have bad smell or taste; not sticky; doesn't bleed; looks very glossy in a nice way; lips feel soft even after it's faded
So-so: doesn't look good if layered on top of the another product; doesn't last long but it's ok with me

BB Cream -GOSH -All in One BB Cream

on 2/10/2018 8:20:00 AM

I absolutely love how this bb cream matches my skin tone perfectly. As a lot of the other women who bought this product I am very pale also, I bought the 01 sand,all the way home from the store I regretted and was afraid this would be another product that would be sitting on the shelf and not being used. But honestly, I am so glad I bought this one, this is the best bb cream I have tried. It looks so natural and flawless. I have combined skin, dry patches on my forehead and on my cheeks and oily skin on my nose and chin. But this works great for me. I also love the product is cruelty free which is a big deal for me.

Lip Liners -GOSH -Velvet Touch Lipliner

on 2/9/2018 7:12:00 AM

This lip liner in Nougat Crisp is me everyday lip liner, I've bought so many I've lost count. I have many backups in case they ever stop doing this! I over line my lips with this, fill them in totally and it goes on so smoothly and literally lasts all day. It looks like a liquid lipstick finish on very matte and pigmented.
I wear many shades of lipstick over this, most things go. Any nude, mauve, pinky rosy shade would go over it. I wear Chauffeur matte by Makeup Revolution over it.
I do apply beeswax original lip balm over it during the day to refresh my lips - and this never fades off!!! Love it.


Mascara -GOSH -Boombastic Volume XXL

It's an average mascara without WOW-effect. The good thing it doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes. Doesn't give volume to the lashes only length.
Pros: cheap; no irritation
Cons: no volume; clumpy; dried down really quickly

Polishes -GOSH -Nail Polish

on 1/14/2018 4:14:00 PM

I got this polish in color Nero (black).
It goes on very smooth and truly opaque in one coat. It dries fast, 20 minutes top. The finish is very shiny, good without a topcoat.
The base is the must otherwise your nails will be stained. The staying power is beyond average. I couldn't make it last for more than 3 days before it starts chipping.
I'm not ready to change my polish every three days, so I won't buy it again.


Eyeliner -GOSH -Giant Pro Liner

on 12/27/2017 7:22:00 AM

I've been experimenting with GOSH brand as they are affordable and most importantly, do not test on animals.
I love black eyeliners - I must have about 20 different ones at the moment!
This looks like a thick fibre style drawing pen - so easy to apply, whether you want a thin or a proper 60's style thick line.
It doesn't smudge but it's not waterproof.
Brilliant.
Nice job GOSH.


Mascara -GOSH -Xtreme Double formula Mascara

on 12/27/2017 7:07:00 AM

I've been working my way through GOSH mascaras (and other brands) because I'm looking for my go to brand that does not test on animals.
This mascara promises volume, length, definition - it's got double formula in its name.
I have fairly long, but straight, sparse and light eyelashes - so nice volume is a must for me.
The brush is fairly big and has a triangular shape.
I apply the mascara by twisting as I'm applying it from roots to the end of my eyelashes- I find this gives me a good curl.
The mascara does give a decent volume and curl and it does not feel heavy. So far so good and when I tried it first, I was pleasantly surprised.
However, it does smudge and comes off after a few hours, I literally have no mascara left at the end of my working day. I do not have time to reapply during the day. If it stay put after the application, I'd be a very happy girl. But it does not.
So unfortunately, I won't be repurchasing. And I'm still on my quest to find the perfect mascara that actually stays on all day and it's not tested on animals.


Lipstick -GOSH -Velvet Touch Lipstick

I bought the color "145 Shocking Coral", it is a great color for summer and spring! Great quailty that I think it can compete with mac lustre and I believe that is a dupe for Mac See Sheer if you apply less (color builds up with extra layers), and I also saw and tried the color 02 Rose(matte one) on the store, matte formula is also great
