Illamasqua Haul

Illamasqua Haul
Hey Lovelies,
I hope you are all having a good week so far! I am off work this week but I'm not actually away or doing anything. Sometimes I think it's quite nice to have time off to just chill out at home and get the things done that you have been putting off for ages. 
Anyway, as I don't have much to do today, I thought I'd use it as an opportunity to bring you another little blog post. Today's post (as you can probably tell by the title haha) is an Illamasqua haul. Illamasqua is a brand I hadn't really tried before this year, but they do have some amazing products and here are just some of the bits I picked up while I was on a make up course with them last week. 
Illamasqua Precision Brow Gel
I have a confession to make. Filling in my eyebrows is the least favourite part of my make up routine. I don't know if it's because my eyebrows are more like 2 people from different continents who have never met rather than sisters, but I just don't like doing eyebrows. I bought the Illamasqua Precision Brow Gel in order to challenge myself more when filling in my brows. A brow gel is harder to work with than pencil or powder, so I am hoping using this product will improve my eyebrow technique. I picked up the Ilamasqua Precision Brow Gel in the shade Strike, which is a good match for my dark brown brows. It defines my brows nicely but does not leave me looking like I have coloured them in using a Sharpie! 
Illamasqua Precision Gel Liner
I needed a new black gel liner and decided to treat myself to the Illamasqua one after hearing many good things about it. This gel liner is water resistant and smudge proof. I've heard that it does not dry out as quick as some gel liners can. While I was on the Illamasqua course we did a black lip using eyeliner pencil and a black lipstick. I loved how surprisingly wearable and elegant black lips actually are. I didn't end up buying up their black lipstick as I didn't feel I would use it enough, however I hope I can recreate the black lip using the Precision Gel Liner! You can also use this product as an eyeshadow which makes it truly versatile and I think everybody needs a black gel liner in their life!
Here's a swatch for you of the Illamasqua Precision Gel Liner in Infinity (top) and the Illamasqua Precision Brow Gel in Strike (bottom). Once these gels have dried, they are smudgeproof and water resistant.
The final product which I picked up is the Pure Pigment in the shade Ore. I'll be honest, there was a whole other bunch of pigments that I also wanted, but as I already have quite an extensive MAC pigment collection, I decided to be good and only get one of the Illamasqua pigments. Ore is a beautiful bronze shade which I will definitely get a lot of wear out of. As with most pigments, you can use this product wet or dry. Lose pigments are always a bit more messy than pressed eyeshadows but the colour pay off from pigments is just amazing which makes having to put up with a little bit of fall out well worth it, especially when the colour is as pretty as Ore!
Well that's it for my little haul today. What are your favourite Illamasqua products?
Thank you so much for reading and until next time,
