Gosh Quattro Eye Shadow
Advantages: nice colour range, good quality, doesn't crease
Disadvantages: applicator can feel odd to start with, I'd prefer it to last all day
I received this eye shadow as part of a gift at Christmas last year and I've used it quite often since then. It is not a brand I was familiar with until I was gifted some GOSH products, but it is one I will probably buy items from in the future.
The Gosh Quattro eye shadows are presented in a round black compact with a clear lid (this is printed with the word GOSH in black) allowing you to see the four colours inside. There are several different compacts available, all have colours which go together well and look appealing to me (the one I have has a green, brown, rose and vanilla colour). In the middle of the compact there is a space which holds an applicator. Overall the packaging and presentation is quite understated and typical of this kind of product.
The eye shadow is easy to apply but the colour does seem to need building up with a few layers to get a bold shade, this can be useful though depending on the look you want to go for. The applicator is a nice size and fairly good quality, it has a bend in the middle which seemed odd at first but seems to make it easier to hold and use now that I'm used to using it.
The eye shadow lasts quite well, but it's definitely not the longest lasting eye shadow I've found. I find I can get about 6 hours wear from this, any longer and it might need a re-application but as it's a nice handy size to fit inside a handbag this isn't too much of a problem (as long as you are near by a mirror!). With the use of primers and fixing sprays you might get longer wear from this eye shadow. I find that I do not get crease lines after an hour or two of wear like I do with some other brands of eye shadow, which is great!
I've found this product nice and easy to remove with either wipes or make up remover, I do not have to scrub or rub at my eyes to get it off. This is fantastic news for me and my sensitive skin. And on the subject of sensitive skin, this make up does not irritate mine.
Overall I am impressed with this eye shadow and I would recommend it to others, though I like other products of theirs more than this one. If you want to get yourself a Gosh Quattro eye shadow, you can buy them from several places online from around £6 upwards, superdrug sell them at £8.49 and currently have a long running 3 for 2 offer on GOSH make up.
Summary: A good quality eye shadow in 4 coordinating shades.
