GOSH Cosmetics: Hot'n Sweet

Posted Nov 05 2008 12:00am
Hot'n Sweet is the autumn/winter collection by GOSH cosmetics and I am absolutely in love with it!


Click on the picture to get the full sized version including the description of the collection

The products in the collection are:

Extreme Art Eyeliners:
- 06 Olive Green (Part of the permanent line): Olive green eyeliner that I bet would look amazing with dark green smokey eyes!
- 15 Fuchsia (Limited Edition): Reminds me a lot of MAC Fuchsia pigment in eyeliner form when swatched - only a little more on the purple side. When I actually used it on my eye it reminded me more of MAC Pink Pearl pigment in eyeliner form. Take a look at the swatc and the look I posted! :)
- 16 Warm Red (Limited Edition): An orange-y red. I really liked this but I think most people would have a hard time pulling this color of as eyeliner. Would be fun for nail art though :)
- 17 Light Purple (Limited Edition): I don't think this color is anything special. Might be fun for people who wants to try colored eyeliner but don't want something too dramatic.

Light'n Shine Lip Glaze:
- 01 White Bear (Limited Edition): Clear gloss with pink sparkles
- 02 Rapid pink (Limited Edition): When I swatched this at the store I thought it was more red than pink. It has some super awesome pink and blue sparkles to it.

Eyeshadow Quads:
- Q43 HOT (Limited Edition): Contains the colors Charcoal(black), pink(soft baby pink), paprika(orange-y red) and Oyster Pearl (white with a little pink pearl to it)
- Q44 Sweet (Limited Edition): Contains the colors Plum (Dark plum), Silver ( dark grey silver), Lime Green (light green. Doesn't remind me of a lime, though), Moss(Olive green)

Effect Powders:
- 04 Pinkie (Limited Edition): Soft baby pink with a silver shimmer to it. Reminds me of a mix of MAC Fuchsia pigment and MAC Swish eyeshadow
- 05 Plummy (Limited Edition): Dark plum color.
- 06 Greeny (Limited Edition): Dark olive green. I could imagine the hottest smokey eye with this, a dark black and the Olve Green eyeliner!

What the products are:

Extreme Art Eyeliners:
These eyeliners were recently added to the permanent collection and are a lot like MAC liquidlast liners: SUPER water- and smudgeproof!
They last extremely well for both eyeliner and body art and can also be used for nail art(just remember to use a top coat!)

Light'n Shine Lip Glaze:
A lot like MAC Dazzleglass! The glitter particles are the same size(very small) so while the glitter adds a lot of shine and depth to the lips it doesn't look like a cheap glitter gloss with huge glitter chunks.
The gloss has a little mirror on the side and has lights(!!) in the lid. While it's a cute idea I really don't know when I'd use it...

Eyeshadow Quads:
Eyeshadow palettes with four different eyeshadows and a sponge tip aplicator. I love the GOSH single eyeshadows but I rarely think the quality and color payoff of the colors in the quads are the same.

Effect Powders:
If you know MAC pigments you'll know what effect powders are too ;)
They're loose makeup colors that can be used wet or dry anywhere you want to. You can even add them to your body lotion/face cream/foundation for an all over glow or use them in nail polish or hair gel!

What I got:

If I had had the money I would have gotten everything except maybe the quads... Especially the other gloss and effect powders! But I managed to limit myself to three things:
The "White Bear" lipgloss, the "Pinkie" effect powder and the "Fuchsia" eyeliner.

Swatches of White Bear, Fuchsia and Pinkie


And a comparison swatch with Pinkie, MAC Fuchsia pigment and MAC Swish eyeshadow

All swatches of pigment, effect powder and eyeshadow were done on top of ArtDeco eyeshadow base.
