Illamasqua Precision Ink in Havoc (Liquid Eyeliner) review by @iamcherrylemon

Hi there, how’s everyone doing today?
Today I have a short makeup review for you, this product is the Illamasqua precision ink. This is a waterproof liquid eyeliner in the shade aubergine. What is colour aubergine? You would imagine “purple”. .. Right? Well it’s not purple. It is a browny-red, that dries with a slight gloss. I read some reviews describing this colour as dried blood. ewwwww
It sounds horrible to have the “dried blood on eyes” look :p and it is not even Halloween hehehe! As yucky as it may sound, it is actually quite a wearable, unique colour to wear on a daily basis. It works better on hazel/green-ish eyes but this did not stop me wearing this for a whole month straight!

(While swatching this on my hand, I stupidly tip the liner upside down, and a good amount of liner liquid just landed on our light green carpet!! OMG)

To be honest, I would prefer it to be a black colour liner, but this product’s staying power is just second to none. I enjoy using a non-black liner that stays on and on, even when the rest of the makeup is melting :p

In fact, I had to use cleansing oil to remove this.. the normal eyemakeup remover just does not cut it. With cleansing oil, the liner comes off in pieces, flakes.

The good:
Long lasting waterproof liner
Smudgeproof, Sweatproof, Kinda heatproof
Sturdy pen nib for precision lining
A good amount of product!

The bad:
Weird colour
Requires cleansing oil for liner removal
Sturdy nib means not alot of flexibility on application (depends how you like your liner :P)

Price: £20
Availability: Illamasqua online and in store, Debenhams, Selfridges
Overall Score: 3 out of 5
