In my opinion, Illamasqua’s Precision Gel Eyeliner is the best gel eyeliner on the market and I am about to tell you why… It is an absolute beauty kit must have. Firstly, it applies like an absolute dream and it has the best staying power of any eyeliner I’ve ever tried. Literally, this stuff does not budge unless you really want it to. I remember when I first used this eyeliner, I was scrubbing for dear life with Bioderma and a cotton pad trying to remove it. It is incredibly rich and intensely pigmented and it creates the most amazing opaque deep black matte lines. It’s super creamy and applies smoothly with no tug. One swipe is all you need. You don’t need a lot of the product either as a little really goes a long way and I found that after a year, this pot is still going strong and still pretty darn full. It hasn’t dried out during that time either. It’s still as creamy and as easy to apply today as it was the day that I bought it. Awesome, right? It doesn’t clump, flake or do that really annoying thing that some eyeliners do where it transfers to the top of your eyelid. I find that using a finely pointed eyeliner brush to apply works best at creating sharp, bold and precise lines. I usually only wear this eyeliner for a night out with the girls as I can trust that it won’t budge all night – it’s party proof!
Downsides you ask? Erm… Maybe Illamasqua could do more colours but I wouldn’t really classify that as a downside so actually there aren’t any!
