Oh my GOSH!

Tuesday, January 27, 2009

(I know, I’m the worst punner ever)

Anyhow, GOSH‘s Velvet Touch Waterproof Eyeliner is (or, at least, should be) the next big thing.This gorgeous blue liner is the shade Pretty Petrol, the most gorgeous almost-navy liner shade you’ll find without being on copious amounts of LSD. I picked it up at Shopper’s Drug Mart (I don’t believe these are available in the US) for $11CAD (on sale from $13) and I’ve been loving it ever since. Yes, it’s pricey for a drugstore buy, but the quality of this pencil honestly tops MAC. (The two are, actually, earning a lot of comparison – people see GOSH as the slightly cheaper alternative to MAC. GOSH doesn’t have the same selection, but the quality is amazing, as good as – or better than, in cases like this – MAC.)To trial-run this, I put some along my lower lash line early Saturday morning, wore it all day long, and took a shower that night at ten. I came out of the shower, and… holy crap, this stuff lasted through a shower! Sure, it didn’t have the same intensity that it had in the morning, but it was definitely there, in a thin blue line along my lash line.

The creamy, non-smudge, long-wearing consistency of these pencils makes me want to run out and buy ten more, in every shade, but there is one downfall. No matter what I do, I can’t seem to get this to sit on my waterline. On occasion I can get it to go on, in a blotchy line, but it’s gone in five minutes.Either way, waterline or not, this pencil is something you MUST buy. It’s been my find of the year – just head over to Shopper’s and feel the tester on the back of your hand. You’ll get what I mean – it’s incredibly creamy, with a long-lasting luxe feel and an array of gorgeous colours.

    Great review! I'm a fan of GOSH liquid liners. The one I have is like the MAC Liquidlast, and it stays on and on and on.

  2. *nods* I've heard great things about the w/p liquid! You *must* try this one, though – it's unbelievably creamy!

  3. Sorry I went MIA there for a while…hmmm, I'm gonna have to check this out the next time im at a shoppers.Damn,I missed your contouring video! I bet it looked fabulous. (and you really aren't twelve, are you?). So, I had this fab idea, because I've had a recent (so-called) epiphany. I can spend more on clothes (like this sweater that I NEED, but I already have a similar one. but the similar one is in a different color! and has a button missing!) if I spend less on MU. So my 'spending diet' started with nail polish. Partly because that's the category I spend the least in. Anyways, new spring collections from Chanel have increased my want for their nail polish. And i've been abstaining for so long! Anyways, I've found a good replacement in drugstore nail polishes…And I was wondering if u would be interested in letting me guest blog a kind of series on drugstore nail polishes. It'll only last for about 2 months or so.interested?tess:)(BTW, i totally understand if u say no, it is your blog after all!)

  4. Lol, NO I'm not twelve.I think a miniseries would be neat, but 2 months?! That's quite a while… Email me!
