Lip liners are a beauty-must for me. I think 90% of my lip application makes use of a liner or two and I can no longer phantom not having them readily available in my makeup stash. Now finding a good liner is at times tricky, they can sometimes be a bit too dry and tug or too creamy and slip… it’s a bit like Goldilocks, it has to be just right to win praise from me. So without much further ado let me introduce you to my latest find.
GOSH have added four colours to their Velvet Touch Lip Liner collection and I got the chance to play with three of them, I think I knew before swatching that they were going to be a fall in love kinda product for me. Reason being is because I adore their Velvet Touch Eye Liners, so I thought the lip offerings would be just as good. I’m happy to announce I was right. The colours I have in my stash are Antique Rose, Cardinal Red and Flirty Orange. I thought I’d show you how they translate on the lips before I start talking more in depth about the pencils.
So now that you’ve had that much desired look at a close up of my lips, let’s get on to talking out the product. I found to be the perfect matte, it’s soft yet really intense when it comes to colour payoff and the waterproof aspect made the product stay on the lips really well. I love a soft liner which can help me shape my lips well before lipstick or gloss application and this was perfect for that. The liner also has Vitamin E and Jojoba extracts to help keep the lips kissable – always a plus. I would say keep the lips moisturised because I’ve definitely learnt the hard way that dry lips and matte products do not go.
The lip pencils can be picked up and Superdrug for just £4.99, a really affordable price. Antique Rose has quickly become my favourite, it is perfect for the pink nude lips I’ve recently been sporting.. Liner and a slick of nude gloss and I’m ready to go. Hope you are all having a great day and not recovering from a mean cold like me! Tanzina x
