The first time I heard about the GOSH Velvet Touch Lipliners was on llymlrs at the end of last year/start of this year and I've slowly been building up a collection of them ever since then. So, I thought it was about time I did a review saying as I've featured them in a few of my previous blog posts, such as my Birthday Make-Up, Interview Make-Up and May Favourites.
First of all, they are named really appropriately, as they do actually glide onto the lips like velvet. I don't have to drag them around my lips to get any product payoff as they're just so pigmented, especially the brighter shades as you can see from the swatches above. Plus, they're so comfortable to wear, I don't even feel them on my lips the way I would with some other lipliners.
The shades I have (from left to right) are called Angel Kiss, Nougat Crisp, Antique Rose, Simply Red and Raspberry Dream.
The first shade I purchased was Nougat Crisp (the second swatch) and you can see how much I've used it compared to the rest. I would describe this shade as being a true nude, which is actually a perfect dupe for MAC - Velvet Teddy.
A while later, I then bought Antique Rose (the third swatch) which is exactly the same shade as my natural lips, so I think I'll get the most out of this shade in the future. I would still describe it as a nude shade, just more pink toned.
I then bought Simply Red (the fourth swatch), a true blue-based red (which helps teeth appear more white) and Raspberry Dream (the fifth swatch), a dark berry toned red which is perfect for this time of year.
I then bought Angel Kiss (the first swatch), but unfortunately I don't use this one that much because it's a peachy tone nude and it looks too light against my already pale skin, which makes me look quite washed out.
Along with great pigmentation and comfort comes great staying power. I can wear these lipliners all day and all night and they don't budge, even through an extremely messy night out they simply do not budge. I even had to use two cotton pads on micellar water to take them off!
If I was to rank them in order of my favourites (one being my favourite and five being my least favourite), I would day it would be Antique Rose, Nougat Crisp, Simply Red, Raspberry Dream and Angel Kiss. There's a few other shades that I still haven't picked up because they haven't been in stock in my local Superdrug, but there's no doubt that I'll be picking them up whenever I see them.
I would seriously recommend checking out these lipliners if you're a lip product addict or have trouble finding a lipliner that stays put. Plus, at only £4.49, they're as cheap as chips.
