Gosh Forever Eye Shadow stick


Now if there is one brand I don't think I've ever mentioned here on this blog before then it has to be Gosh. I don't think I've actually ever owned anything from this particular brand except from possibly a few dazzle dust pots when I was maybe about 14 or 15. When I saw this product on the stand in Superdrug, however, I just knew I had to change that! Just look at how pretty it is! I've wanted me some Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks for what seems like forever, but I just don't have the heart to part with that kind of money at this time of year. The price of this one made me very happy indeed. 

Being a blue eyed girl I choose the shade Light Copper, which was the nicest one anyways in my opinion. Now it genuinely kills me how much the photographs do not do this product justice! In the swatch above although you can tell how fantastically pigmented this is; the shade shows up as a dark bronze when in actual fact it is a warm, golden copper shade. I would go as far to say that it reminds me a lot of Mac's Amber Lights Eye Shadow. It definitely makes my blue eyes pop that's for sure! I just don't think I've ever used an eye shadow stick as pigmented as this. Even with the lightest hand this still looks super opaque, although it can be blended out if you like sheer eye shadow and that sort of thing. It can also be used as a base for powder products to help them to last longer or even just to add that special something to a boring matte eye shadow.

Now this also claims to be waterproof. A claim which I have not yet tested as I don't know about you but I don't ever go swimming in gold metallic eye shadow. I mean I'm sure there are or is probably someone (at least one person) in this world who does but that's not the point. I seriously doubt that avid swimmers were the focal point of a market research group into the making of this product. I can however point out that this will literally not budge from your eye lids all day no matter what the weather. And I live in Scotland so I think I can testify this quite rightly. If you have been working up a god awful sweat you might be expecting to find this dripping down your chin, but this held up really well. I love how I can literally apply this anywhere too and just use my finger to blend out the creamy consistency unlike powder products which make a whole lot of unnecessary mess and cause a whole lot of unnecessary fuss.

At just £5.99 the Forever Eye Shadow Stick is such a great product for the price. I'm so glad I didn't fork out a fortune for the high end version as this is so so beautiful. The fuss free nature of this makes it a keeper in my eyes as you all know by now how lazy I can be. Also this comes in like 8 shades so even if this isn't the shade for you there are plenty more to choose from!

Now what do you guys think of this? Is it something you would buy?
