GOSH Cosmetics Review: Eyelight Trio, Velvet Touch Eyeliner and Lipliner

Last month, I shared a review on the GOSH Forever Lip Shine lip crayons that recently came out. Today, I'll be sharing my thoughts on the GOSH Eyelight Trio, Velvet Touch Lipliner and the Velvet Touch Eyeliner.

GOSH recently released 4 new trios in Spring 2015. The four trios feature soft and feminine color combinations. The concept in the trio is that each shadow has a different texture. It features an iridescent highlighter, a glitter shadow, and a satin to add depth. I found most of the colors quite shimmery.The concept is really cool but I think with the color combinations, it really only works for one of the compact. 

Texture: When I first went to swatch these I was amazed at how soft and buttery the shadows are! They felt like a dream!

Pigmentation: The pigmentation is medium but since some of the shades are so light, the pigmentation is quite sheer when you brush the shadows on to your eyes.

001 Three of a Kind: The first palette in this collection features three very light/soft shades. I like all of these shades individually but I don't think they work well in a palette together as there's not enough contrast to create a complete eye look.

002 Fairytale: Although the three shades in this palette is also very light, it works well to create a soft feminine eye look with the shimmery pink and purple! However this palette still wouldn't be able to create the typical "deep shade in the crease" look. I used the pink shade all over and the purple on my outer corners even though the purple shade is technically the "glitter" shade and the pink is the "depth" shade.

003 Chunky Chocolate: This is hands down my favorite palette out of the four! I would actually take this as my travelling palette as it features all the shades I need for a simple polished eye look. I really like the top shade or the middle shade all over the lid. Then the brown shade is actually a satin finish and does a great job on creating depth!

004 Vanilla Sky: This color combo is not something I would usually go towards. The two blue shades are really beautiful but I find the highlight a bit too much of a contrast and a bit ashy. 

I'm a huge fan of 003 Chunky Chocolate for a classic neutral eye in a sleek compact palette! 002 Fairytale would be fantastic if you are looking for a shimmery soft look that a lot of Asian magazines try to recreate see example here and here.

Velvet Touch Waterproof Lipliner/Eyeliner
$12/$10- 1.2g Made in Germany
Exclusive to Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada

Also for Spring 2015, GOSH released some new shades for their Velvet Touch Waterproof Eyeliner and Velvet Touch Waterproof Lipliner.

For lipliners, Angel Kiss is a beautiful peachy nude while Pink Pleasure is a bright fuscia pink! Pink Pleasure goes really well with Funky Friday which is a lip crayon that I recently reviewed. The formula is fantastic! It's creamy and pigmented and lasts on the lips for hours! 

For the eyeliners, Carbon Black is a rich deep black and Temptation is an eggplant purple with a hint of glitter. Carbon black lasted 12+ hours on my upper lash line! But only about 3 hours on my water line. However, both are very creamy, soft, and no tugging was involved!

The lipliners and eyeliners are great value for it's price! The eyeshadow palettes are a bit pricier so I'd recommend 002 Fairytale for a soft shimmery look and 003 Chunky Chocolate for the perfect easy travel companion.

Left using 002 Fairytale and right using 003 Chunky Chocolate. Also using Velvet Touch Eyeliner in Carbon Black.

You can find these GOSH products at Shoppers Drug Mart if you are in Canada! I believe if you are in the UK, these are at Superdrug or other equivalent drugstores! What are your favorite items from GOSH cosmetics?
