REVIEW: ILLAMASQUA PRECISION BROW GEL + Swatches

I have a new favourite staple in my every day makeup regime and I couldn't wait to tell y'all about it today!  I mentioned them in my March Favourites so you may have heard about my love for them already but I wanted to write a more detailed review on the blog!

They are the Illamasqua Precision Brow Gels...

I have two shades, Strike - my personal favourite which is a chocolate brown and Stare, a dark slate grey which is perfect for those with super dark brows.

I have been using these daily, not only for filling in my brows and giving them a more clean, defined shape, but also as eyeshadow smudged out underneath my eyes which really ties the whole look together in my opinion.  I actually like to do this a lot with my makeup - using the same product on both on cheeks and lips, or brows to my eyes which just adds a nice touch to the finished look.

These last all day on my eyes and are so pigmented and creamy you can really play around with them.  I like to use a slanted brush to gently fill in my brows for a natural, yet preened look, and I use a smudger brush to gently place some underneath my lower lash line (as you can see in the pictures above).

The colours available are also perfect - I have such dark brows and blonde hair which means finding a shade that matches without looking 'too much' is difficult, but Strike is perfect.  At £18.50, it's not the most affordable brow product but one I now could not live without!

What's your favourite Illamasqua product?

  4. Looks great on you. I'm not into filling my brows or anything since I have pretty bushy eyebrows. They are naturaly to visible on my face so I avoid that step but I like how it looks on your eyes.

  5. I own one product from Ilamasqua! I must try some more bits. I love the Anastasia drip brow and once it’s finished I’ll be trying this out for sure!
