I’ve been very, very impressed with GOSH lately, and when I was last in Superdrug I spotted a highlighted section on their cosmetics stand which was featuring the new GOSH Beyond Real Length ‘n Volume Mascara in Black. It was on offer for £5.99 and, as I’m running out of my usual daily mascara, I thought I would give it a go!
On the GOSH stand, there was a display wand so that you could see just how fine and precise the brush is. I normally go for chunky brushes; I just find that they provide the most volume for your lashes. However, after trying the Benefit They’re Real mascara, I have warmed to the idea of a thinner, more dainty brush.
One of the first things I liked about the mascara is how truly black it looks – I hate buying a black mascara to find that the colour is less than intense – there’s sometimes even a hint of brown in there. This is a true, deep black.
As always when reviewing a mascara, I took two photos – I applied the mascara to one eye and photographed that, then to compare I took a photo of my other ‘naked’ eye!
How bare does it look?!
Now, here are my lashes with a good coating of the Beyond Real Mascara:
What do you think? I’m very impressed – it does exactly what it says on the tube. My lashes are longer than when I use my usual mascara – they’re not quick as ‘thick’ looking, but there is still definite volume there. I wouldn’t say they’re ‘beyond real’ – they still look like my lashes, only so much better. Again, I love the intensity of the black colour on the lashes; it really helps to make them look fuller and thicker.
I really think I’m going to enjoy using this mascara – it’s very reasonably priced (even at its full price it’s only around £7) and makes the lashes look gorgeous. I officially love the GOSH lip products, now I can say that I absolutely love their mascara too!
