Review: GOSH Effect Powder, Butterfly

Colour/Formula:
Butterfly is a beautiful lilac-purple pigment. When used dry it has decent colour pay-off and looks a bit glittery but when used wet the colour pay-off is even better and it reveals a gorgeous metallic sheen. When you use this product dry it can get a bit messy so I recommend using this product wet.

Swatch GOSH Effect Powder Butterfly, dry/wet

Packaging:
The products comes in a glass jar with a screw top black cap. It looks very sophisticated. When you screw the cap off, you’ll find a sifter so the product won’t spill. If you don’t like sifters you can quite easily take this one out.


Price/Quality:
This jar costs €7,49 but this brand is often on sale. The jars aren’t that big so it doesn’t feel like a waste of money when you know you won’t use it all. These GOSH Effect Powders are a more affordable and easier to get by than than MAC pigments. Also because it’s a pigment you can use it for other things than just your eyes. I once mixed this in with my hairspray to create my very own glitter hairspray.


Overall:
+ Al lot of colours available (neutrals and bright colours)
+ Good colour pay-off
+ Often on Sale
+ You don’t need a lot
+ Multi-purpose product
+ Good pigmentation
- Can be messy when used dry
- All lot of fall-out when used dry

Do you like using pigments? Which brands do you like? Or are they too messy and too much work in your opinion?
