Shopping my Makeup Drawer: GOSH Velvet Touch Waterproof Eyeliner in Bananas.

This s#!% is Bananas!  B-A-N-A-N-A-S!  GOSH Velvet Touch Waterproof Eyeliner in Bananas is a very light pearly yellow. I remember getting this when GOSH eyeliners were 40% off at Shoppers Drug Mart.  This was one of those “swatch-and-go” impulse buys.

After trying this once, I admit that it remained untouched in my vanity drawer for months.  I kept thinking, “Why did I buy this?  It doesn’t work for my skin tone at all.”  Then something amazing happened.  I read Beauty Geek Janine’s post about Speedy Makeup Tricks to Look Great with Little Effort, where she mentioned this very pencil.

For those of you who (like me) think you look strange wearing white eyeliner — to be honest it looks so stupid on me — this is the perfect alternative.  GOSH Bananas opens up the eye for those tired days, and stays put on my waterline all day.  It went through watery eyes (thanks to seasonal allergies!) and a teary breakdown (thanks to a sad video on Vimeo!) and still held strong.

This stays on better than my dear Urban Decay 24/7 pencils, for about half the cost.  They come in a wide variety of colours, so even you colour lovers will definitely find something that you like.  In fact, GOSH Velvet Touch Eyeliner is so good that I’m giving it a spot in my holy grail.  Amazing!  Rating: A+++++

      It’s time to drive up to Vancouver! 😛 I’m surprised GOSH hasn’t hit the States yet though. I believe it’s all over Europe too.

  • SilhouetteScreams

    Thats a really pretty shade :) it looks like it’d also make a fabulous eyeshadow base.

      Yes it would make a great shadow base. The pearly sheen will make eyeshadows pop! Thanks for the suggestion. 😀

  • Janine

    Thanks for the mention, Arianne — so pleased you’ve found a new liner love. GOSH liners are terrific, very nearly as good as Make Up Forever Aqua Eyes. In fact, it took me ages to try Aqua Eyes because I was so happy with the GOSH Velvet Touch pencils. Plus, Aqua Eyes are about $5 to $8 more expensive.

    GOSH is available in the U.S. — check this website:

    Also funny — I’d realized when I was checking out colours in Shoppers yesterday that I’d called the pencil Banana instead of Bananas. Doh!

    • Arianne

      Yeah I was confused too about the name, because I believe the GOSH website calls it Banana. :S Oh well, it’s fabulous either way. :)

      Ooh you’ll like this one! Make sure you buy when they are 40% off at Shoppers!

  • Rae

    Stop the presses!! Are you telling me that you actually managed to make a Velvet Touch liner go onto your waterline, and stay?!


    I’ve never been able to make mine do that :(

      Whhaaat? Are you serious? I had awful bouts with allergies last week and yes, this managed to stay put on me. Maybe it’s the colour? The violet one I have is not as great as Bananas.

  • Tomi

    oo that Bananas looks like such a unique color! Gold but not quite. I too look just stupid in white eyeliner, I think I’ll check this out! Thanks!

      Yeah! It’s a great colour. :) You should definitely try to get your hands on one.

    • Arianne

    • Arianne

      I don’t know Carla, but I haven’t had any weird reactions to this liner.
