I've long been a fan of the Danish makeup brand GOSH, as they are affordable, vegan-friendly, plus if there's something I just 'have to have', but am feeling skint, I can just pop it on my Edgars account (they're exclusive to Red Square and Edgars). I've had such fun playing around with these colours which I'll share with you, but firstly, yay, there's a GOSH hamper up for grabs worth R675 (they're clean and new I promise, not my used and cut up testers!). All the deets on how to win the giveaway is at the end of my post, but first a quick roundup on some that I tried out:
(Left to Right)
GOSH Velvet Touch Lipstick Matte, in Cranberry 014 (R140) and GOSH Velvet Touch Lipstick Matte, in Classic Red 005 (R140)
Intense pigments give great colour payoff, while lips are kept smooth, nourished and moisturised by Hyaluronic acid.
Gosh Velvet Touch Lipstick in Nude 162 (R140):
Creamy and soft with added Vitamin E keeps lips hydrated; a colour that lasts for hours.
(The Cranberry shade is my favourite as it complements my winter wardrobe of burgundy, khaki and velvet).
Cranberry, Classic Red and Nude
GOSH Forever Eye Shadows come in matte and metallic shades in easily recognisable packaging. There are four matte shades and eight metallic shades to choose from.
GOSH Forever Matt Eye Shadow Sticks - Waterproof (R160) are creamy and soft in texture which makes for easy application as an eyeliner or used as an eyeshadow.The GOSH Forever Matt Eye Shadow Stick in Dark Brown and Dark Grey are my two favourites to create a subtle smokey eye and as they are waterproof, I recommend an oil-based makeup remover.

GOSH Forever Matt Eye Shadow Stick - waterproof (R160)
GOSH Forever Metallic Eye Shadow Sticks (above) have good colour payoff, blend beautifully before setting and last up to 8 hours, if not longer! I love that the colour doesn't shift as they dry quite quickly on the eyes and stay put!

01 Silver Rose
03 Light Copper
GOSH Catchy Eyes Mascara (R155) gives definition and length without being clumpy. The brush is rather hard which I like as it helps get into the corners and up close to the waterline, opening my eyes up nicely.
GOSH Giant Pro Liner in Blacker Than Black (R185)
Whether you're after a 'wing' or a 'wedge' eyeliner, this liner gives bold and accurate lines, drying super fast with an intense black colour. I had to stop myself doodling with it I loved it so much!
GOSH Primer Plus + Skin Perfector Illuminating (R255)
Primers are the perfect canvas before applying foundation and something I've been using for a while now, as they extend the wear of foundation and have great ingredients to stimulate skin's ability to renew itself, like ProRenew Complex, plus nourishing oil from superfood Sea Buckthorn. Sometimes I like to use a primer without a foundation as the tint gives a bit of a glow, like you've taken a brisk walk outdoors!
