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.
Long lasting waterproof liner
Smudgeproof, Sweatproof, Kinda heatproof
Sturdy pen nib for precision lining
A good amount of product!
Requires cleansing oil for liner removal
Sturdy nib means not alot of flexibility on application (depends how you like your liner :P)
