Gosh Velvet Touch Lip Liner in Nougat Crisp

If 2013 was the year of the eyebrows, 2013 was the year of the lip liners. Lets just call it the Kylie Jenner effect. Her enlarged matte pout has been put down to her overlining her lips, with tons of us trying to recreate her signature look. I've been scouting around for more affordable versions of her lip colour (rumoured to be MAC Whirl, seriously hard to get hold of!) First I have the Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in East End Snob. A super creamy easy to use lip liner which is much pinker than I anticipated. It's a pretty good dupe for Charlotte Tilburys Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk. Great for enhancing the natural shape of your lips without it looking too overdone. Secondly I tried the Gosh Velvet Touch Lip Liner in Nougat Crisp. This one was much more neutral and browner in tone and a near match for my natural lip colour. This made it the ideal shade to enlarge my own lip shape. I also really loved how long lasting this shade was, it lasted a good 5 hours and thats while I was eating and drinking!

If you want the KJ lip look then I'd go for the Gosh one but if you're looking for a really easy to use and versatile one then I'd try the Rimmel one. Both come in at under a fiver so are pretty affordable for beginners just getting into lip liner!

  24. We don't have Gosh here in the States, but these are so gorgeous! I definitely need to find some sort of brown nudy lip color--pink looks awful on me! And I agree, 2014 was definitely the year of lipliner!

  25. I have East End Snob and can't stand the way it's always breaking when I try to use it. I much prefer traditional pencil liners, so think I may have to give this Gosh one a go!
