Gosh Waterproof Eye Shadow
Advantages: Goes on a doddle, stays fresha and bright for hours
Disadvantages: Does transfer a little if your not careful
When it comes to eyeshadows I seriously can't resist buying them! When it comes to Gosh as a brand I love it so when I saw a Gosh eyeshadows I hadn't seen before and in a couple on really pretty colours I decided that I simply had to buy them!
The eyeshadow comes in a long pen style plastic holder. Half of the case pulls on/off like a pen lid and you simply twist up/down the other end to use the colour. On one side of it I'm told that it is Gosh Waterproof Eye Shadow and on the other side of it I'm told the product is made in the EU and that once it's been opened that it stays fresh for 24 months. There is also a white sticky label on it that peels off with ease and on that other information includes what the colour of the eyeshadow is called and ingredients are listed. All eyeshadows come in the same colour plastic holder that the actual colour you have purchased is. It's nice packaging and of good quality and of course it's as informative as it needs to be!
The Eyeshadow itself:
Well like I have already said I treated myself to two colours from this particular range and me, I'm mighty glad I did!
In each one you get rather a lot of colour and it's quite a thick block too. You can either apply it straight from the tube onto the eyes or onto a finger and smudge it on, the choice is yours.
They are moist going on eyeshadows these. Deeply pigmented with colour and a slight shimmer to them (no glitter particles though!) they go on the eyes as smooth as silk. You can of course dab a little on or build the colour up...once again the choice is yours depending on the look you want to achieve!
So applying them is quite simply a doddle. They glide over the eyes and evenly coat them and quite simply they sit on the eyes and in place for hours upon hours. I have noticed though if I rub my eyes (forgetting it is on) I do get transfer so that isn't advised as a worthwhile thing to do at all!
However is it waterproof? Yes it is actually. I mean sure it comes off if you rub your eyes in water hard but as for this eyeshadow simply getting wet (I.E swimming pool) it stays in place totally!
I like this eyeshadow which is rather surprising for me as I don't usually get on with moist eyeshadows at all. However I do appreciate the ease of use this provides and the longevity it gives. I find it to stay on the eyes comfortably and as good as new for a good fews hours and it doesn't fade, crumble or look grimy over time and when it comes to removing it just use your usual make-up removing routine and voilà it is off!
Probably best to use on not so wrinkled eyes, I find this on mine to be lightly hydrating and very comfortable to wear indeed and I have really sensitive eyes. This works out a very economical product too in the long run cos you don't need lots to get an even looking colour and once on you don't have to keep 'topping it up!'. Very nice indeed Gosh!
I have only seen this in sale in Superdrug priced at £7.50 per tube (no size is stated). Do look about for this online though for deals and there are sure a few to be had as far as I have seen!
Summary: A great eyeshadow on all levels, it's as light as a feather and very lightly moisturising!
