GOSH Cosmetics Quattro Eyeshadow in Platinum - Review with Photos

I had a bit of a shopping spree earlier today, and was tempted by the GOSH Cosmetics in Superdrug being on 3 for 2. I bought a Multicolour Blush in 50 Pink Pie, a Quattro Eyeshadow in 24 Platinum and a Brow Kit. I am always drawn to the GOSH stand by all of the bright coloured shadows and bold packaging, but I don't often buy from the range, so this was a good opportunity to try out some of their products.

I will tell you about the eyeshadow palette today, as I tried it out this evening. The four shades are, pale frosted white, taupe, a shimmery silver and a dark grey. I was expecting these shadows to be very highly pigmented, but they actually aren't. I struggled to build up the lightest shade on my lid, with both a brush and a sponge applicator. I didn't use the shadows damp though, so I expect you could get a much stronger effect using them with a wet brush.

I tried to do an evening eye-make up look, but not too heavy (my eyes are super sensitive today). Here are the products I used:
  • Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in Fresco
  • No7 Creme Touch Powder in Fair Bloom
  • GOSH Quattro Palette in Platinum (all shades)
  • Boots 17 Pencil Eyeliner in Onyx
  • Chanel Les 4 Ombres in Enigma (only the darkest shade on lower lid)
  • Estee Lauder Double Wear Mascara 01 Black
  • Eyeluscious False Lashes 

As you can see in above the picture, the shadows do not give a strong colour when used dry, but they look nice all the same. Even though I was trying for an evening look, I think this is more my kind of daytime make-up . I will try them again on another day, to see if they are better when applied with a damp brush. Would love to hear your comments!

Love Edie xx

VERY jealous of your eyebrows haha.... mine are threatening to engulf my face at the moment and I'm too much of a wimp to give them the full OVERHAUL they need. This is a great eye look. I'm off to superdrug next week. May have to check these out :)
