FOTD – GOSH Smoky Eyes Palette

Posted by Lipglossiping On December - 2 - 2009

Here’s that FOTD I promised showing the GOSH Smoky Eyes Palette I was sent.

Remember the one?

No, sorry not that one… I meant this one…

*alright, stop bitching about their crap stock imagery already*

Anyway, I was semi pleased that it wasn’t hugely pigmented as I find the Sleek MakeUP Graphite palette so hard to work with.  Although I was unsure if I would get much payoff from that light grey (2nd from right) at all…

And I was right! (which makes a change).

I do really like this for a non-overpowering smoky eye.  It feels more grown up, more genteel and sophisticated than the Sleek Graphite Palette.  Unfortunately, I got nothing from that pale grey shade at all.  I applied it in the crease and blended upwards but you just wouldn’t be able to tell.

I hereby class this a “nearly” palette… “nearly” good, but no cigar.

    looking great! I like that the finish of the e/s looks more satiny rather than full on frost.

    what’s on your lips in this picture? I’m nosey and they look great!

    I’m glad I wasn’t able to get the Graphite palette from Sleek – while it is highly pigmented and wonderful, I wouldn’t able to work with it either with looking like I have either a. a black eye; b. decided to be goth for a day; or c. became a hooker. Too bad this palette isn’t brilliant.

    Hmmm, whatever colour you did manage to get out of it DOES look good. I like the finish.

    Btw, I don’t mean to sound cheesy (ha ha!) but I’ve been really enjoying reading your posts, so I gave you a blog award in a post I did yesterday. Keep up the great work! :)

    That looks extremely wearable. I’m glad I didn’t get the Graphite palette as well, I don’t think I would have had much use out of it. I could be persuaded with this one though…

    I quite like the look of that- it’s more delicate than you average smokey eye isn’t it? How much was the pallette?

    I’ve finally found a Superdrug near(ish) me that does both Gosh and Sleek- yayyyyyyy!!!

  9. AlicatAHL says:

    Ho hum, I’ll be dangerously near a Superdrug on Friday… As Redtiger21 said, how much was it Charlotte?

  10. @Redtiger21 @AlicatAHL – ’tis £8.99 m’ladies.

    Eee, I bought this and tried to do an EOTD with it but the photo was too hopeless to post – I need a rad camera like yours (and some natural light, I always end up doing EOTDs in the evening). I was disappointed in the pale shades too, as I was hoping for a solid white.
