Gosh Cosmetics Review & Photos

 

 

What on earth is mineral pigments???

Mineral pigments are pigments that are created by combining and heating naturally occurring elements. They include ultramarine and spinel pigments such as below mentioned. I did some google search and found some information which I thought would help answer this question.

In summary: historically, ultramarine blue was derived from the precious stone called lapus lazuli. The use of ultramarine pigments is to create deep blues and violets that are fit for a work of art.

Let’s take a look!

I think this is one of the Mineral Colour Pigments by Gosh  that wouldn’t drive me crazy. I picked it several weeks ago and I’m wearing it today. The bright Apple Green color is pretty and inviting. I typically don’t use mineral powder shadow very often but this shade of light green with a tiny hint of shimmer, I like. This Mineral Colour Powder has a very light and silky texture too.

First, I love the color green and this shade is right up my alley. Second, it doesn’t cause any mess on my face or on my vanity when I’m applying the shadows.

The tricky part is taking out the product from the jar. Instead of dipping or scrambling to pick up the shadow from the tiny hole, what I did was to shake the products into the cover and use my finger to apply them on my lids. No hassle and no mess. I like that!

Jar packaging is cute with a duo plastic lid to protect the mineral powder. Easy to pick up products with eyeshadow brush and it blends well.

It’s silky, soft, finely milled and blends easily onto lids! It doesn’t cause any creases or fall out when I used it with dry application. The texture gives a wet look on swatch as seen on my fingers and directly on bare hand.

Color swatch on dry application on naked hand. Nice color payoff, what you see is what you get especially more with wet application. The product are more intense and bold. It really is not that intense neon apple green, depending on how you use. If used lightly as on the lids or inner corners it is just a normal colored shimmer.

Overall, I feel this is a very nice pigment shadow. When paired with a good primer, this product also wears well into the day without having to touch up. I would recommend if you’re looking for an alternative to the pricey MAC pigments. Available at Shoppers Drug Mart/Pharmaprix.

Have you tried any pigment shadows? Leave your comments which brand is your favorite. I love to read what you think.

Madness Wednesday|Quo Colour-Rush Eyeshadow

 

Welcome beauties to my 2nd instalment of Madness Wednesday where I share my finds on beauty items which are a great steals or good deals. So, last weekend I was out early for my weekly hunt at the drugstore. With the Madness Wednesday on full swing, I’ve been doing some leg work sighting and shopping for great steals to share them with all of you. But then I fell ill for a couple of days and now I’m back in full force. Sorry, I’ve gone tangent but anyways, where was I – oh yes, my madness beauty hunt ends after I stumbled upon this Color-Rush Eyeshadow by Quo in one of the liquidation baskets. Yay!

I’m excited to share my thoughts and opinion on this mineral powder eyeshadow and to be honest I was sold because of this cute little jar packaging. I’m a sucker for cute and strange looking makeup packaging. Anyways, this Eyeshadow packaging looks a bit high-end in my opinion so I caved in. This is my first time trying a beauty product from Quo and two things can happen here, it can be a pleasant surprise or an epic fall but either way, for only $2.00 a jar I don’t mind giving this a shot.

Keep reading for the full review.

As some of you may know Quo is an exclusive line to Canadian Shoppers Drug Mart and it’s a drugstore brand that has been around for several years.

Okay, I excited to get started. So, let’s jump in right away :-

I got this Quo Colour Rush Eyeshadow in the shade Saddle with a net wt : 3g. Can you believe it if I tell you that I just paid $2.00 for this. That’s right $2!

Let’s roll to the review part! This is a gorgeous sparkly and glittery eyeshadow I’ve ever seen. It’s a Taupe color which looks bronzy to me but extremely glittery. Okay, let’s get real, this is a loose powder shadow that’s incredibly pigmented and the powder or dust doesn’t fly everywhere like other brands sometimes do. The packaging is cute with a soft netting inside.

From picture you’ll see as if it’s wet but nope, feels very dry but holly molly … you got to try this. The texture is so soft and smooth. It’s so easy to blend and I just love how it say put on my eyes. The swatch is done on bare hand – meaning no primer whatsoever. I usually do swatches on my bare hand. So, basically what you see is what you’ll get.

Here is a winner. To answer to the question I posed on top of this review, I definitely will say it’s a pleasant surprise rather than an epic fall.

The next time, you stumble on a liquidation sale of Quo colour rush like this one, grab it. For only $2.00, that’s quite a steal.

What do you think of the Quo Colour Rush Eyeshadow? Will you be picking anything up? Be sure to let me know in the comment section below.
