Illamasque Liquid Eyeliner Review

I have been using the same black liquid eyeliner from Collection 2000 for years- you know the one! I never thought about trying a different one, because it always worked so well for me, and is cheap.

I buy a beauty subscription box sometimes from ‘Latest In Beauty’- click HERE to see my review! Basically, with this subscription box, you get to choose the products you want to receive. My beady eyes spotted this Illamasque eyeliner, so I added it to my basket.

For a bit of perspective, this eyeliner sells for £20.50 on their website. But, in the subscription box, I got this eyeliner and eight other products for £18! I definitely got a great deal; I couldn’t believe it!


Here is a description of the eyeliner from the Illamasque website:

Create looks with attitude that no one can ignore with Precision Ink in Abyss. Precision Ink’s fine tip allows for defined application. Long-lasting and waterproof it’s perfect for use anywhere on the face and body to bring out your bold side. You can even use it as an nail art pen; simply seal with Illamasqua Top Coat.

Using an eyeliner as a nail art pen? That’s a new one! I will have to try that out one day.

It is correct what say about it being long-lasting and waterproof. During the week, I apply my makeup at 7 am, and it lasts until night-time when I take my makeup off. I’m a chef, so it will be interesting to see if it still stays on in the summer when it is extra hot!

The packaging is very understated; all of Illamasqua’s makeup comes in the same black packaging with their logo. The eyeliner comes in a range of 6 colours- the black one I have here is called ‘Abyss’.

The eyeliner has a tip which resembles a felt tip pen. Before I used it, I was worried the tip was too long and thin, and that it would be too hard to control. I needn’t have worried; it is so easy and quick to apply! You just have to go over it a few times to get the desired line thickness. It certainly takes less time to do my signature flick, compared to my Collection 2000 eyeliner.

To summarise, I would repurchase this eyeliner. I would only buy it if I could find it on offer somewhere- sorry, but I’m not going to spend £20.50 on an eyeliner! I like how quick and easy it is to apply.

What is your favourite liquid eyeliner?

I look forward to hearing your recommendations!

  2. I’m hopeless with liquid eyeliner, but I’ve always wanted to try Illamasqua products. I’m kind of tempted to try it in other ways first, since it seems so budge-proof! I’m kicking around some pretty neat body paint ideas now. 😀
