Gosh Vanity Pastels Eyeshadow Palette

Tuesday, 15 April 2014

I picked up this little beauty from superdrug a few weeks ago in one of their crazy sales for just 49p! Now don't get me wrong, I love a bargain, but this cheap? surely there must be something wrong with it? Well turns out there wasn't and I actually just managed to get myself a super bargain. (yayy!!) 

So what's it like? Well, apart from looking super cute, it has a fully functional light inside! I've never seen this on a makeup product and definitely wasn't expecting it. It's not the brightest of lights but I can see it would be handy for touchups in a club. As for the actual product, I felt a little disappointed. Maybe I had got too excited over the whole gadget/makeup combo, but the eyeshadow itself isn't all that impressive. The colours in the pan look so cute and girly but the pigmentation leaves a lot to be desired. The swatches above are about 3/4 layers thick and they're still far from vibrant. The colours themselves are lovely though, and i especially love the purple. I'm still a little unsure how to wear a pastel eye colour so if you have any ideas let me know and I'll try out some looks in the meantime.

The bottom line? Impressive packaging, not so impressive product. But who can complain for the price??


  1. Agree with you, the light is such a great idea, but the pigmentation doesn't look to great - such a shame!


  2. I've never tried Gosh but these colors look so lovely - great selection of pastels :o) Xx

  3. GOSH certainly do love their lights, they have little bulbs in their lip glosses too! Shame about the pigmentation though, real disappointment :(
