GOSH Extreme Art Vibrant Eyeliners
I discovered these little lovelies last year when, as part of my make up regime as a new mum of twins, my make up bag had to have products which were quick, effective and still fun (I didn’t lose my sense of colour and style when I joined the mother club – I hope).
The GOSH Extreme Art eyeliners come in 12 gloriously vibrant shades, my two current staples being the Metallic Brown and Extreme Art 9, a gorgeous bright cyan colour. I love these little sticks of colourful wonder for a number of reasons; they make it super easy to immediately add a striking element to your make up in double quick time, they don’t crumble or dry during the day for that attractive flaky look, they last for aaaaaages (I still have my very first purchase and use it regularly a year later), and they always, without fail, draw comments from admirers.
So, what’s the deal? As liquid eyeliners the Extreme Art range is really easy to apply as the consistency is thick enough to paint with without going clumpy. The brush is slim to enable you to build up as much as you like coverage wise; I use mine as a liquid liner for the top of my lids, but of course there is scope for so much more as these are for use on both face and body. The more creative among you may like to use beneath the bottom lashes, or to create an illustrative graphic look – as fantasy make up tools they are ideal as the ability to paint is made easy by the texture of the liquid and the slim brush.
They dry very quickly and have super staying power; you need to watch out for blinking before your handy work has set as you may end up with a stubborn line in the wrong place. They are easy, gorgeous, effective and such a brilliant addition to a make up bag I would be lost without mine. I use the metallic bronze for an every day look or work meetings with a slightly funky edge, the cyan shade when I need to stand out a little more or I am feeling expressive, and the green gold glitter to accentuate the inner corner of the eye or to use alone for a subtle effect.
They are waterproof so you will need a good make up remover to remove your creations at the end of the day. I use Mary Kay’s Oil-Free make up remover which is amazing, or some almond oil works well too.
Personally I would recommend owning two or three Extreme Art liners. They last for so long it’s an easy investment to make for a quick and stunning make up look when you need to look fabulous in next to no time, and having a few colours to hand means most outfits can be matched with striking make up easily.
Let me know if you try and buy, and if you are a fan like me!
