GOSH Eye Liner Pencils Swatches and Review (Pic Heavy)

OK I am officially on a roll - Thankfully my mum is managing to get about a bit more so I haven't had as much to do so over the last few days I've been trying to catch up on my blog posting starting off with a batch of GOSH reviews and swatches. One of GOSH's most popular products is easily their eyeliner pencils. I've had a little look in my stash and I have a few of these so I thought I'd let you know what I think - To be honest I thought I had more but I only have 5.
My favourite formulation is the Velvet Touch Eyeliner Pencil - This claims to be a waterproof eyeliner and to be fair whilst I'm not convinced you can go swimming in it, it does some to be pretty hard wearing once it's set after a minute or so it does take some budging. The texture of these pencils is gorgeous super soft, creamy and blendable easily comparable to the Urban Decay 24/7.
My favourite and probably most use pencil of the ones that I own is Truly Brown

This is a super dark chocolate brown shade, a little browner than it appears here.
A colour that I've mentioned before on my blog is the gorgeous Purple Stain - as with must purples the pictures give it a blue tinge, the swatch is probably the most accurate - it's a gorgeous shimmery purple

The next velvet touch pencil that I have is Green Devil - as a lady with green eyes I was always told when I was younger that I should never wear green eye make up - what a load of codswallop - I find that different shades of green can bring out different tones in my eyes - I love green! This is a real dark grassy green

The final velvet touch pencil that I own is the infamous Bananas - much talked about in the blogging and You Tube community this isn't the bright yellow that the name would imply - it more a soft yellow gold - I wasn't 100% sure what to do with this at first but I find it to be a great inner corner highlighter.

The final GOSH eye pencil I own isn't a velvet touch one it's the normal Kohl/Eyeliner pencil in White. The texture of this isn't quite as nice as the velvet touch ones - it feels a little harder and less creamy on the skin it also isn't waterproof - again I use this as a highlight

I purchased all these pencils myself from Superdrug - they retail for around £5 for the velvet touch eyeliner and around £3.99 for the kohl liners I have to say I prefer the texture of the Velvet Touch pencils to the normal GOSH kohl pencils - If anyone has any favourites I'd love to hear them
Oh and just a quickie sorry if the pics weren't great I was interrupted by Jasper...
