Gosh Mineral Waterproof Eyeshadow

Gosh Waterproof Mineral Eyeshadow were from part of my Penn station clearance discoveries (my project stop-buying-crap is not going anywhere). Naturally, I picked up two taupe as I am boring like that. The shadow come with retractable twist up stick, in sleek matte plastic tubes. The packaging seems fitting for the price point, but I personally would never pay 13 for a drugstore eyeshadow.

Golden Brown is a light glistening champagne taupe, it's a great subtle highlighter that doesn't make the eye puffy. Brown is s warmer, deeper brown taupe with a bit of mahogany undertone. I wouldn't expect to like it as much but it's a great subtle definition with very delicate shimmer (Reads: Not boring or aging than your standard shimmery brown taupe!).
I haven't splash water on my eyes to test the waterproof claim but I can say that these do not last well at all. If I swipe them across bare lid, I would notice them starting to fade within 20 minutes (mind you, it's very cold and dry here). I wasn't expecting magical wear time when I only paid 3-4 bucks for each of them, not to mention, I do have two tubes of primer to be used up (I don't know how long I had that Too Faced for...7 years? I guess if it still works and I need it, I would keep it).

 Overall: I love what I get for the price I paid so I went back to get more (Penn Station got rid of the display altogether but I found them at the bus terminal!). I have also seen Gosh at the Walgreens in State Street (downtown Chicago) if you want to try your luck there.
