Gosh Magic Tricks: Swatches and First Impression

I picked up this eyeshadow quad while I was in Quebec.  These normally retail for $18 CAD, but I got it on clearance for $9.  I don't know if this means it is continued and no longer available, but you can find like items at Shoppers Drugmart/Pharmaprix.  I don't use greens and purples together in a look very often so this quad intrigued me.

With exception of the first two photos, all pictures were taken in natural light.  Swatches are done on bare skin with one swipe of the finger.

I have only used this quad once, but I found it to be a decent product.  There is good, not excellent, pigmentation with a primer.  The eyeshadows don't produce too much fall out and are not powdery.  I'll have to use this quad a few more times to make a final judgement, but I don't think I will be buying more quads from Gosh if they all have the same formula.  Because I have so many eyeshadows, I don't like to settle for ones that are just okay in pigmentation, and that is what this product has to offer.

With that said, I still like this quad for its fun colors.  I really like the lime green and purple together and hope to wear them more often. 


  1. I really like those top two colors!

  2. The eyeshadows would be great if they had better pigmentation. They look like they would have a lot of fallout, as well. :-\

  3. Love the colours! I also love when Shoppers has a little bin of GOSH stuff on sale!
