Here’s an eye liner gifted by a pal who also loves taupes 🙂
The Gosh Let’s Twist Eye Liner in awesome awesome awesome GREY MINK!
Purchased from the UK, although it probably is available in other European countries too. It’s in retractable style and comes with a cap.
Compared to the pencil liners, this is kinda paltry at 0.3 g and 0.01 oz.
Which explains why I’ve been using this so sparingly, since it’s not available locally in Singapore!
The retractable mechanism works well and it retracts back well too.
The texture of this is pretty awesome. The lead is slightly harder than Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Pencils, so no breaking tips. It goes on reasonably pigmented for a non-dark shade and isn’t too waxy.
How awesome does Grey Mink look and it’s perfectly named! A grey-mink of a taupe 😛
And when 2 animals meet, it’s inevitable to compare 😛 Here you have Gosh’s Grey Mink next to Urban Decay’s 24/7 Stray Dog. Grey Mink is… grey-er… and cooler in tone than Stray Dog, with slightly more pigmentation to it. Positive pigmentation. Unlike the ones on skin 😛
Here’s the result of The Rub Test, with the swatch rubbed across about 10 times. Both Grey Mink and Stray Dog have faded slightly, though still staying put. Owing to Grey Mink’s pigmentation, there’s more of it remaining than Stray Dog.
While Gosh’s Grey Mink is Waterproof, this is not quite long lasting and does disappear after about 6 – 8 hours, or less, when I have it on my lower lashline which is rather watery. Nevertheless, still pretty decent for a non-black eye liner.
I’d love to stock up on Grey Mink if given the opportunity 🙂
