We are starting the new year with a makeup post, I need something to distract me from the madness I went through when I played Doki Doki Literature Club … J̴͍͖̥̝͌͊͑u̵̢̥̥͌͝s̸̲͌̀͜t̶̘̳̪͎̉͆ ̵̺̍̐͌M̷͚͚̥͂̀̕͠o̷̞͙͆n̶̬͔͖̫̓̈́͆͋i̵̧̞̥̪̿̌̔͠k̸̺̤̈͝ä̶̜̬͎́̈̔ͅ. Anyway I’ve tried GOSH products before and I was very impressed so I decided to try more products from this brand plus the L’Oreal Paradise Mascara since it was over-hyped by my sister.
I’ve been using Kat Von D Shade+Light contour palette and theBalm Bahama Mama bronzer for years so in the spirit of change, I got this palette. I got it in medium shade since I’m Arab so I have a naturally tanned skin and I tried the contour part. I wouldn’t say it’s as good as Shade+Light palette but it takes time to reach the contour level I’m aiming for. I also tried the highlighter on the inner corner of my eyes and I noticed it’s not too glowy like theBlam Manizer I’m more used to, it has a shimmer but subtle. I would say it gives a natural glow but not exactly that much to notice. I know it’s going to take me a while to get used to it, it’s an alright palette I guess.
Along with the palette I decided to try the brush as well. I have a brush collection from E.L.F and it doesn’t contain a proper contour brush. The brush is almost similar to those brushes I mentioned, quite soft and picks up the color pretty well. I used it with the contour I mentioned above and it blended pretty well, I like it
I’m a total mascara hoarder, I just can’t stop collecting them. This mascara is AMAZING, the bristles are almost similar to Givenchy Noir Interdit Mascara I tried before and loved. The wand is a bit curved so it instantly lifts the lashes from the first coat and it separated the lashes to keep them looking natural. I absolutely love this mascara.
Now this mascara is overly hyped, and my sister just dropped it in my shopping bag with no words but “try it“. The packaging honestly reminded me of Too Faced Better Than Sex, also the wand … It was exactly like that mascara and I researched about it just so I want to make sure that I wasn’t the only one who felt that, and I found this article from Allure about it. Basically … it’s exactly like Too Faced Better Than Sex so I’m not going to complain about it because I’ve been obsessed with that mascara for years.
Overall, I don’t want to judge the contour palette too hard because I’m more used to another brand which I’ve been using for years so I’ll keep using it for awhile before I give it my final judgement. The mascara is absolutely amazing, I want to use it everyday … all day.
