A Great Budget Friendly Lip Liner - Swatches!

So I recently reorganized and totally cleaned out my stash. One thing I found myself completely lacking (as in COMPLETELY) was lip liners. Not sure where to go, but assuming that finding one that was soft and buttery and melted into the lips would be as hard as finding eyeliners like that. Urban Decay is one of the few brands that has a pencil that feels more like a solid stick of creme than it does a hard pencil.

Enter GOSH Velvet Touch Lip Liners. What made me pick these up? I have no idea. Its not like I have extensive familiarity with the makeup line. Though I do LOVE LOVE LOVE my foundation that I sadly found after it was discontinued here in Canada. But yes, I decided to pick up a selection of shades to start off with.

From top to bottom above (or left to right below) I picked up Wild Cherry (a nice pink with a bit of purple tones to it), Nougat Crisp (a neutral) and Simply Red (a bright red). I have no idea why I picked up a bright red. I dont wear red lips. Basically EVER. But I for some reason figured I needed it? Not sure. Pleading a temporary bout of insanity.

As for how these feel? They feel like Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliners. That is the best way I can describe them. Buttery soft, and more like a sold creme than anything else. Overall, I think these are really good and while not MOISTURIZING, they aren't drying either. They also could be totally used as an all over lip colour with a gloss over top. The best part? Theses pencils are only TEN DOLLARS!!!!!!!

Have you tried these before? Which is your favourite colour? Do you have another brand you love for lip liners? Let me know in the comments below! Id love more suggestions! These are the only three I own! I clearly need to try some more!
