Want a liner that stays for 9 hours?!

Gosh is your friend. 

I have had gruelling 9 hour work days where I've been dealing with 600+ customers a day. And had black liner on my lower water line.

I've used Gosh's Velvet Touch waterproof (I don't think they make Velvet Touch as non-waterproof) in Black Ink. It is just plain black.

Oh goodness it is difficult to take good and sharp pictures with good lighting of your waterline!!!
I know it has come of a little, but mostly only from the corners, and the color has faded a little but that's to be expected, isn't it? Pencil liners do that nearly everytime, even if I use them on my top lash line...

Both pictures are clickable if you want to see them in a bigger size.

I love this for the lower water line. Stays put just the amount that I want it to! These don't cost a fortune either!

Have you tried Gosh's Velvet touch liners, or any other Gosh liners?

Maybelline One By One Mascara review

I had a bad first experience with this mascara. I didn't like it one bit. The brush was too big, application was messy etc.

The mascara on the right.

Look at this. (You can click on the pictures to see them in full size.)


The length!!! And volume too!!! 

Yes, one coat is not enough. No way. You need layers and layers and layers. Did I mention layers?


In the picture above, you can see how it keeps the curl. I took these pictures after a day of work. I curled my eyelashes before applying this mascara and the curl stays. From the first pictures you can see that I haven't really managed to curl the outermost lashes, and that's because I never do. My eyelash curler doesn't work really well for those. I need to invest in a smaller curler for those lashes. 

There's no shedding either.

(The eyeliner is Gosh's Funky Violet, and then I covered the purple with black, cause I wasn't feeling purple.)
Have you tried One By One?

Maybelline Haul

I have always loved Maybelline's Volum' Express mascara. It's been perfect. Lately I have been trying out other mascaras. 

And I will continue that. 

Maybelline mascaras cost about 12-14 euros (17-20 USD), which is about the minimum price for a mascara. Yes, it really is.. At work, today we had a sale, a mascara was 10 euros. And since I work there, I got 15% off from the sale price. I paid 8.50€ (12 USD) for each mascara. And I'm gonna try them all. 

I had tried One By One already, I'm using it currently. I bought the two on the left. Falsies Volum' Express in Black Drama, and then the Colossal in Cat Eyes. I don't know what the special names are for...

I might have to buy more tomorrow.. basic Volum Express maybe.

Do you like these? What is your favorite mascara of all time?
