As many of you may probably know, a couple of weeks ago Illamasqua reached 50k followers on Twitter and to celebrate they treated all of their lovely customers to 50% off everything online. Even though I’ve never bought anything from the brand before, when I seen the offer I thought it’d be the perfect time to try out some of their products. I treated myself to a Gleam highlighter in Aurora (review soon) and this, the Brow & Lash Gel. After not being 100% content with Benefit’s Speed Brow, I was eager to see if this would keep my brows in place…
At first I was confused that this was a Lash gel and a Brow gel. After some research I found that in terms of applying it to your eyelashes, it is supposed to help hold them in place too, much like how it’s supposed to with your eyebrows. Even though I like how it’s multi-functional, I want to keep the product solely for my eyebrows as I’ve seen the Pixiwoo sisters use this in their make-up tutorial videos.
Upon first application I noticed that the gel was clear – making me a very very happy bunny! I knew that this would most likely reduce the chance of their being a coloured residue left on my brows and was I right? You bet I was! Illamasqua 1 – Benefit 0. Not only did the gel sweep easily onto my brows, but the wand makes it super easy to brush your hairs into the shape/direction which you desire. The gel sets clear and I can honestly say that my brows don’t budge an inch all day. I think I’ve finally found what I’ve been looking for! I’ll definitely pick up some more stuff from Illamasqua, they seem like such a great brand. Overall Rating: 10/10!
