I’m always on the look out for good neutral lip liners, and GOSH Cosmetics have a range of lip liners with two excellent shades that will suit most people. Nougat Crisp is fawn brown with a hint of pink, and Angel Kiss is a nude beige shade with a slight shimmer. The texture is soft and creamy, and the tip allows for a perfect line without dragging or feeling hard on the sensitive lip area. In addition these are waterproof, so they don’t smudge, and have excellent staying power. The other shades include; Antique Rose, Cardinal Red, Raspberry Dream, Simply Red, Ping Pleasure, and Flirty Orange. Priced at £4.99, and currently with £2 off at Superdrug, these are worth stocking up on.
My favorite lip liner has been Nars, and these are astonishingly similar in texture and appearance (both Made in Germany, and possibly by the same company), but at £18 each stocking up on these can be expensive. Nars does have a different selection of colors, but you can’t go wrong with the GOSH Velvet Touch Lip Liner. The Danish based company has been around since 1945, but it wasn’t until the 1990s that the cosmetics became available to a worldwide market. I first discovered them in Sephora in Paris (in the early 1990s) and have been a fan of their products ever since. These days it’s a cult brand with a combination of the latest color trends, and some classic items that every make-up bag needs. GOSH also has fragrance, body care, skin care, and hair care ranges, although these may only be available online depending on where you are located.
Rating: 4/5 based on quality of the product, ease of application, the color remaining true and lasting long, and value for money.
Beauty Super Spy Tips
- Keep the lip liner well sharpened, and invest in a quality sharpener.
- If you are in a hot and humid climate, store in a cool place or the fridge.
- For a simple and quick fresh look, draw a line around the lips twice, and then fill in gently on the rest of the lips. Next, add some sheer lip gloss or a coat of lip balm like Carmex on top, and you have a natural look.
