Oh My GOSH | New Core Lip & Eye Products

gosh core products eye & lip::: press sample :::

Last week I featured a few of the new Gosh core products for face, and as promised, I'm following up with some of the lip and eye products as well. Today we'll take a look-see at matte lipsticks, eyeshadow stick and palette, mascara, and liquid liner pen. No time to waste so let's go!


A quick Gosh rundown, in case you're new to the brand... They were founded in 1945 as a pharmaceutical company but quickly moved into cosmetics. The brand is currently sold in more than 75 countries world wide, but continue all product development, production and distribution from their head office in Denmark. The brand focuses on providing customers with 'fashionable, high-quality products at accessible prices.' They also happen to be cruelty-free with most products also being vegan.

I know, I called this a lip and eye post, but eyes definitely rule the post. Lips get one mention, but it's a good one, with the Velvet Touch Matt Lipstick. This formula is a soft-matte with a velvety feel that is easy wearing and non-drying. The range has four shades- Cranberry, Rose, Nougat, and Cinnamon- with all shades being wearable yet trendy browns and neutrals. I'm very partial to Nougat (medium taupe-tan) and Cinnamon (medium rosy-brown) as they're perfect everyday shades.

Onto the bulk of the post with eye products. The Forever Matte Eyeshadow Stick is a very useful product for a quick shot of colour on lids or as a base. Available in four neutral shades (Twisted Brown, Dark Brown, Dark Grey, and Nougat) the cream shadow offers great pigmentation, is easily bendable, and sets to a budge-proof, water-proof finish. Nougat is the same shade as the Nougat lipstick, a medium taupe-tan.

The To Be Cool in Copenhagen palette might just be the best matte shadow palette you're going to find at the drugstore. The palette features nine mattes inspired by the 'coolness and colours of the Nordic Lights' with a range of soft browns, nudes, and grey shades. All of the shadows have a silky feeling formula that is very nicely pigmented. I was very impressed that the light shades actually show up as shades on my fair skin and are distinguishable from each other. These blend very well and work to create soft and bold looks without much effort.

The Giant Pro Liner is a chubby pen-style liner that doesn't fare too well when swatched. I had used this a few times before I swatched it, so I was very taken aback at how weak this looks on my arm. It definitely needs to be seen on eyes (you will in just a moment) as it does give a deep, opaque line. I'm not always a fan of chubby liners, but this does make a cat eye flick incredibly easy and create clean, thick or thin lines without any fuss.

I love a good fbre mascara, and the Lash Sculpting Fibre Mascara is just that. The formula features fibres to add volume and length to lashes and Bladderwrack seaweed from the Danish coast. It contains high levels of anti-oxidants, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals to condition lashes as well as do it's mascara thing. I love the length and volume this gives my lashes, but it doesn't hold a curl as well as I like. I have stubborn lashes though #thestruggleisreal.
