GOSH Lip Lacquer in (6) FunkyLips: It’s neither a lipstick nor a gloss… It’s GREATER than both! Intense, rich colour of a lipstick with the liquid, smooth shine of a gloss.
Don’t be fooled by the bottle, it may look like nail polish but this is a lip product. Thankfully for me since it looks way too red for me to wear, this colour is not as red as it looks in the bottle. It is however very pigmented and lasts for ages. I reapplied after lunch and was good until the end of the work day, 4-5 hours between applications. It is glossy yet not sticky (because I hate when my hair gets stuck to my lip gloss) and did not dry out my lips at all. Even better it has a sweet but light scent that reminds me of summer. I would definitely buy these, but in a more neutral colour for daily wear. Note: make sure you exfoliate your lips, it is not very forgiving on dry lips.

GOSH Forever Eye Shadow in (6) Plum: Forever Eye Shadow is a creamy, soft eye shadow stick. The extremely smooth and non-tacky texture allows for optimal playtime and blend ability before setting on the lid with an even finish.
- Fantastic colour pay off
- Metallic effect
- 2 in 1 Eye Shadow & Eye Liner
- Easy to apply
- Long lasting
- No need for sharpening
- Perfume and parabene free
This Plum eyestick is a pigmented, cool-toned purple with silver undertones and fine silver and purple shimmer. ‘Plum’ is perfect for a simple smokey eye, it is metallic yet creamy and blends well while staying put once set.
I did wear an eye primer under this and it is was still perfect at the end of the day. It is not overly glittery so can be worn day or night and layered for more pigmentation.
These come in some great colours and I intend to pick up the Silver Rose and Copper ones which are closer to my usual colour scheme.

GOSH Velvet Touch Prime’n Set Powder in Transparent: For a close-up ready look, GOSH Velvet Touch Primer Powder transforms skin by visually minimising pores, fine lines, redness and imperfections. The silky loose powder creates a flawless, matte finish and comes in a clever pot with a sieve and a closing mechanism that stops the powder from spilling out into lid. Wear Velvet Touch Primer Powder on its own or as a primer, or sweep it over foundation for an airbrushed look that locks make-up in place and keeps unwanted shine under control.
- Primer – Minimizing pores, fine lines, redness and imperfections
- Setting powder – Gives a flawless, matte finish
- Mattifying Shine control
I am always a little suspicious of two in one products. As a primer, this does not work for my skin but I can see it working for others. I have some deep creased and combination skin and need something not powdered to fill and smooth, but to just even out my skin when not wearing makeup it looks great as a primer. As a setting powder however, I love it! I used it under my makeup on my t-zone to help with shine, plus to set my makeup. It helped with shine for about 4-5 hours. As a setting powder, it gave a very finished look, and did not have the sparkly look of many powders.

GOSH Crazy Volume Mascara: Crazy Volume Mascara give lashes a major volume boost. Description The unique oversize fiber brush adds dramatic volume and extreme length to the lashes in one easy stroke. With no clumping or flaking, Crazy Volume Mascara ensures a smudge-free, highly defined look that lasts for hours.
This was my least favourite of the products Chick Advisor sent me to test as part of the #GOSHGoddess review panel. There is not anything bad about this mascara, it is a decent product, just nothing special compared to the ones I already have.
Personally I prefer mascaras that make my lashes look fuller rather than just longer and I found this brush also held too much mascara. It did last all day without smudging though which is impressive and usually the thing that has me running to waterproof mascara.
