I've always wanted to try more GOSH, but the prices have always seemed a bit iffy to me, with some bargain items and others that seem way too pricey for what they are. When I saw these colourful liners in the clearance for £3, I thought I'd take the plunge and grab some while they were there! Sadly, it turns out that GOSH are discontinuing this product, so I'd recommend having a scrabble through your local Superdrug's clearance sales for them before they're gone.
PACKAGING: The tubes are small and compact, a handy pocket size, containing 3ml of product. The cap unscrews to reveal a very small, fine brush; the cap springs up a bit if you don't secure it, so be sure to screw it on firmly when replacing it. You may also need to clean the mouth of the bottle now and again, since it easily gets in a mess from scraping excess off the brush.
COLOURS: The selection is top notch, with over twenty shades covering almost every colour, as well as some novelty glitters. There are the standard eyeliner colours like black, brown and dark burgundy, but also a whole load of bright, funky shades like various greens, blues and metallics. In fact the emphasis on blues and greens is a little heavy, with a lack of hotter colours, but there's still something for everyone. I own the dark burgundy/purple (01), black (07), blue (09), green (12), and gold (13), all of which are slight shimmers except for the black. They're superbly pigmented, delivering rich, dense colour with one stroke.
APPLICATION: The brush is small and thin, ideal for fine lines, making it easier to apply the vibrant colours without overdoing it. I'd have preferred the bristles to be firmer, especially since the liquid is thick and slightly gloopy - it can be too easy to slip and get it in your lashes, so you do need a steady hand. It takes some getting the hang of if you prefer the control of a firm applicator, but it's ideal for fine details, creates graceful lines, and a little goes a long way.
WEAR: These are billed as "Extremely Waterproof", and GOSH aren't joking. I don't think I've ever worn such tough eyeliner! After eight hours at work I expect some smudging and fading, but these don't budge, and at the end of the day the colours are as clear and vibrant as when I'd applied them in the morning. They're a real boon for eyeliner lovers prone to oily lids. Unfortunately they're very hard to remove when you actually want them to come off; I find oil-based removers work the best, and even then it takes a fair amount of rubbing before the liner grudgingly flakes off. You could probably sleep in the stuff and still look good in the morning, though I've not tried!
I'm glad to have found such a hard-wearing range of eyeliners in such lovely colours, and my only regret is discovering them so late. I was expecting these to be novelty products for infrequent use, but they're really very useful and functional, whether for an everyday or glamorous look. It's disappointing that GOSH are discontinuing them; I can only hope they produce another range of liquid liners that's half as tough and fun (and maybe less difficult to remove).
I personally, must have the biggest make up collection in the world, and I always say I won't buy any make up, until I've run out of another product..It didn't last! I was overwhelmed by the need to buy the GOSH Extreme Art Eyeliner, so I ended up just breaking my promise, but I did have a new eyeliner! I tend to be a fairly big fan of GOSH, as I think they produce really professional make up products, but alt really affordable prices, how could I resist?
The first thing I noticed, was the amount of colours available, there were 12 colours available, and in a range of shades, including glittery shades, so I'm sure everyone will find a colour or shade that they will love, and believe me choosing a colour to buy, is very difficult! And a little advice from the GOSH specialist I talked too, brunettes/black haired women should choose greens, blondes, reds and pinks, and red haired women choose blues. Obviously, they are just vague rules, colour choices depend on the individual. I personally chose the silver glittery eyeliner, because I'm abit self conscious about my eyes, and didn't want to draw to much attention to my eyes.
I'm usually a pencil eyeliner person, but with this liquid eyeliner, the brush was really strong and thin, which I felt helped me get a smooth line and was quite thin, which is personally what I wanted. The eyeliner actually looked really great, it was sparkly and glittery, but wasn't OTT, and just subtly looked very glamorous, which abled me to wear it on a night out, but also to work and lectures, without being too overpowering for the day time. Also I felt the eyeliner worked well with the other make up products I was wearing, so it didn't over power the other ones, so I could still wear coloured lip gloss, without looking silly, as the eyeliner was subtly beautiful.
Taking off the eyeliner was a little more tricky to get off then other eyeliners, which surely is a good thing, as it'll last throughout the night, but if you really want it off, then rub your eye gently with eye makeup remover pads for around 5 minutes and most of the eyeliner so be removed eventually.
GOSH Extreme Art Eyeliner cost around £7 and is available at Boots and Superdrug, and it's well worth having in your make up bag!
This is probably the best eyeliner i've tired! I've tired many other eyeliner brands before from 'no17' (from Boots) to '2True' (from Superdrug) and they began to rub off quickly once applied. But Gosh extreme art eyeliner has got to be the best one! Gosh brand is sold in Superdrug, even though the make-up brand can be pretty pricey but it's defo worth buying as the quality of the product is very good. However, the best thing about this eyeliner is that it doesn't come off, even if you rub your eyes and manages to stay on all day - so you never have to have the worry of re-applying! It's an excellent eyeliner for making eyes stand out! The eyeliners are sold in many colors - so you can either choose ones if you want a natural day-time look or you can be daring and choose a bright color (the choice of either green or blue and these come in many shades of blue and green from pale to dark) The blue and green eyeliners are good if you want to make your green or blue eyes stand out and the color is really strong too! However, there is one problem though - it doesn't come off as easily because it's waterproof, so you may take your eye-makeup off and may notice some of the eyeliner is still there the next morning!
I really can't tell you how amazing this stuff is, you need to try it to believe it!
About two years ago I spent about £11 buying a liquid liner from MAC, I loved it but used it sparingly. Then, about a year later they brought these little babies out. They look EXACTLY like the MAC ones, right down to the shades (my favourite being the turquoise).
I bought the same shade as my MAC one, for a relatively cheap £7, and found that It was exactly the same. The brush is absolutely tiny, which makes application a lot easier.
I normally hate 'brush' brushes, preferring 'felt tip' brushes for their superior application. However, these are very easy to use, with little mess. It may be due to the slightly thicker consistency of the product.
My one word of warning, is that when they say that these are EXTREME, they don't lie. Once dry, they don't budge, and are completely waterproof. In my experience, unless you know the tricks, they are very difficult to remove.
The rest of your make-up might come off with a wipe, but the majority of this product will be left behind. If you apply it direct to your skin, the best way of removing it is with baby oil, and a little elbow grease. The easiest way around this, is to only apply it on top of powder, either eyeshadow or translucent powder. This means it won't be anchored to your skin, and will be removed with the powder.
