GOSH Xtreme Mascara Review

The last mascara to be reviewed in this month's makeup review series is the GOSH Xtreme Mascara! This came out last year as part of their Spring 2015 collection and is available exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart.


Basics
Name: GOSH Xtreme Mascara
Shade: Black (one option)
Price: $16
Size: 10mL
Available at Shoppers Drug Mart

What GOSH Claims:
The soft fibers and the triangular-shaped brush gives lashes a triple-whammy makeover - xtreme volume, maximum length and major definition. Combined with a double formula bulk, the result is fabulous lashes with a spectacular false lash effect. 


The brush has three sides and varies in length. It has a natural fiber which is my preferred mascara wand. I find the spacing of the wand to be perfect to coat my lashes without clumping! I haven't found any issues with smudging or flaking.

From reading online, the formulation is made with double effects of hard waxes and synthetic polymers. Lower viscosity is for volume and higher viscosity is for lengthening. The hard waxes have higher viscosity and gives lengthening to the lashes while synthetic polymer have lower viscosity and gives volume to the lashes.


I found this to be really great at separating out my lashes but I do find that it gives a similar result to my NYC Angel Lash Mascara which is $10 cheaper! This is more of a lengthening/separating mascara than a volumizing one but I do enjoy using it as I do not have to fear about clumpy lashes! 

Mascara Ratings 
Big lashes: 4/5
Blackness: 5/5
No clumping: 5/5
No flaking/smudging: 5/5
Easy to take off: 5/5
Value: 4/5

Overall 28/30    A

Recap

Out of the four mascara I reviewed, I think the mascara that gives the biggest lashes is the Stila Huge Extreme Mascara, but it is the most expensive. The best everyday mascara would go to the NYC Angel Lash Mascara for it's affordability and a comfortable wear.

Did you guys enjoy reading multiple reviews of one type of makeup products? In February, I will be talking about foundations so if that's something you are looking to buy, stay tuned for thoughts on four face products!
