This stuff is amazing. I agree that the brush can be challenging to work with in the beginning and always ensure that the cap is screwed back on tightly. I am currently trying to use it sparingly as it is difficult to find. I have the black one and I must say I may hoard once they re stock (hopefully soon) :) I use extra virgin olive oil to take off this eyeliner (just happens I have the extra virgin one vs. a virgin olive oil or just olive oil but I bet any of these would work like a charm).
REALY waterproof - Easy to put on - Good price - Lasts long time-
Hard to rub off.
Overall i like this eyeliner, I've got it in silver, and i love it.
I bought #01 (cobalt) & #11 (teal) on clearance from SDM. They were $2 each.
The brush was a tad too long for my liking but it was very fine and pointed.
The stopper couldn't really control the amount of product pulled out by the wand/brush, it was a little wasteful of the product. But I just layer the excess onto a tissue and re-dip the brush into there.
The color is SUPER vibrant and long lasting. I love how it doesn't budge after it dries. continued >>
Exactly like MAC Liquidlast Liner but about $5 cheaper CND. I went to buy some today & was told by the cosmetician that they haven't received any in months & that it has been discontinued. They only have really bright colors left now.. :(
Very waterproof, stays on well with my oily asian lids (all day), I could see it being difficult for some (without oily lids) to take off but I don't have any issue. I wish the brush was a bit stiffer/shorter, or maybe a felt tip - but I just use this with my LM push brush to tightline & I love it! continued >>
One of my favourite eyeliners ever, stays on forever and the colour stays great for the whole day. A bit harder to wash off than some other ones but this won't smudge no matter what.
I think this is discontinued now because I can't find it anywhere but I hope I can find something as good as this.
This product is awesome, despite the packaging. It LASTS FOREVER and is beyond WATERPROOF, perfect for vaca and GREASE SPEWING skin like mine :). I would 100% suggest using your own SLANTED LINER BRUSH as, already mentioned, the one it comes with requires more practice but once you USE YOUR OWN BRUSH it's a breeze. I've purchased the black and gold colors. I would recommend and repurchase...once my shopper's (drugmart, canada) restocks...whenever that is. It is a fair price for what it does. Removal is a process but worth what you get out of it wear wise. I use Bobbi Brown CLEANSING OIL (or just olive oil) on a MAKEUP WIPE and let it sit for a bit til it loosens, q-tips help too but cotton pads get too messy.
BOTTOM LINE: It works with your own brush, but if you are not willing to use some elbow grease clean up wise then you should skip before you drive yourself crazy trying to remove it. It is comparable to Mac's version but i find this last longer and is a few bucks cheaper...yay.
P.S. They last forever i just remembered i had purchased the aqua and light green colors at least 3 years ago and they still have not dried out.
I have the black one...This stuff clings on like no tomorrow, for me, one application can last a full day and a half ! I've had mine for a year and a half and it still works like a charm. It has thickened a lot since the beginning and clumps on my lashes when I'm not careful, but the staying power has not waned. It's not the cheapest for an eyeliner (16 when i bought mine) but for the quality and life span it's well worth your money.
Some description of the product as follows:
the texture is some what elastic - maybe that's what gives it the cling-on!
the brush is not super thin or fine, meticulous application required.
The tube is a good size and hold - a simple cylinder - must be quite air-tight as well seeing how long the product inside is lasting
- love love love is all I can say!
This is my HG eye liner.
Let me start off by saying that I have extremely oily eyelids, even Urban Decay's Primer Potion creases on me. Even without a primer, this eye liner stays put on me. For some, yes, it may be hard to take off but I use the Clean and Clear makeup dissolving foaming cleanser to help break it down and make it easier to rub off.
As for the packaging, I like it, but I don't love it. It's small and cute, easy to fit in a pocket or clutch. I would LOVE if it had a felt tip applicator instead of a brush, but I've learned how to create the looks I want even with the semi-difficult to deal with brush.
I always put on a heavy cat eye. This stuff does not budge, flake, smear, transfer, or ANYTHING. I've used the black one and teal-ish blue, the black one dries to a vinyl finish, but it's not overly shiny, and the teal one dries to pretty much the same as it looks in the packaging.
MY SUGGESTION: If you have oily eyelids and you don't like using primers just to put on liner, GET THIS STUFF. It's not the cheapest, but there's no need for touch-ups so one vial lasts a few months. For me, it's definitely worth the $15 I pay.
I love these eyeliners, Gosh, MAC etc. as they do stay on longer than most... I must have really really oily eyelids because even they start to smudge and crack after about 6 hours...
A tip forgetting it off easily is Baby oil... its not harsh and cheap.
I do have a question though... hope I'm not breacking any of the rules... I live in australia and want to buy Gosh online... the Gosh website only sells to the USA... does anyone know of an online site that has black and sells to australia.... Please....
Great color but impossible to remove!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
