Somehow I'm stranded without my computer today, so instead of posting what I had originally planned, I'll post about some stuff that has pics already uploaded on Photobucket :)
So....Shoppers Drug Mart had a sale on Gosh products a few weeks ago, so I picked up a few things as I had never tried them before but heard good things.
I got two of their eyeshadow sticks in Love that Beige and Love that Cool Mint, a limited edition quad in Toucan , and the lipstick in Darling.
The eyeshadow sticks are quite good, they go on similarly to MAC's shadesticks and the colours are good dupes. Love that Beige is quite similar to Lemon Chiffon from Sugarsweet, while Love that Cool Mint would make a great base for Aquavert as they are very similar greens.
The lipstick in Darling has a smooth texture similar to MAC lustre formula which I like. The reason I got this shade was because it seems to be quite popular on Makeupalley as a nude, however I am not so sure it works for me. The formula goes on really well but the colour seems to clash with my skintone.
Swatches of Love that Beige and Love that Cool Mint on the left, and Darling lipstick on the right:
The eyeshadow quad I got is a limited edition for Spring '09, the colours are vibrant but tend to be on the matte / satin side:
Swatches of the Toucan quad (no base used):
Spring is almost over, but I did a Spring inspired FOTD again because I wanted to try out the MAC blushcreme I got a while back, and also to try the GOSH palette :)
What I used:
Skinfood Aloe Sun BB cream
Cargo blu-ray concealer
MAC Blushcreme in Blossoming
Gosh waterproof eyeshadow stick in Love that Beige
Gosh quad in Toucan (yellow and green colours)
L'oreal HIP liner in brown
Too Faced Lash Injection Pinpoint mascara
Majolica Majorca Honey Pump gloss in OR122
I found that Love that Beige really brings out the colours of eyeshadows when it is used as a base. The colours may not have looked all that bright in these pics but believe me in real life they were quite vibrant!
Regarding the MAC blushcreme, I was not a fan of it. The colour of Blossoming is a natural looking coral-peach, however I couldn't get myself to like it because of the texture. It is a very creamy blush so it was hard for me to blend compared with the gel / mousse blushes that I am used to. I also thought this shade seemed to have too much of a coral tone to it, so it seemed to accentuate the redness on my sensitive skin. I do have this for sale on my sale blog if anyone is interested in trying it for themselves.
Thats it for today, I hope I'll get my computer back tomorrow as I have loads to catch up on!
