Eyebrows can be funny old things, and to me, I think that they can either make or break your makeup look. They help to frame your face, help to give you expression and also add a little structure into whatever makeup look you decide to go for.
For over a year now I’ve been using my Illamasqua Precision Brow Gel in Glimpse, an auburn toned shade that I was recommended to pick to match with the reds in my hair. However, just lately, I’ve been feeling like my brows have been a little too dark for my colouring and seriously fancied a change. Seen as I was coming to the end of my pot of Precision Brow Gel, I decided to pick up a pot of MAC’s Fluidline Brow Gelcreme in the colour ‘Dirty Blonde’ instead. I chose blindly by looking at swatches online, and I already knew from browsing through other artists kits that the ‘redhead’ shade would be too light for me, so I went for the next one down.
The gel arrived and was a perfect match (hallelujah!) for my colouring. Although my hair is actually ginger, I do have a lot of natural blonde tones that have appeared throughout the years. People always ask me what colour I dye my hair or what brand I use, but the truth is, I haven’t dyed my hair in over five years.
The gel is really easy to use, if you’ve ever used the fluidline gel eyeliner from MAC, it’s exactly the same consistency. A little less ‘dense’ than other gel formulas and with a little more ‘slip’ to the formula. It’s really creamy, easy to use and also dries down nicely into a formula that won’t smudge or transfer but doesn’t feel hard or crusty at all. In fact, it’s hard to tell it’s even there.
I’m really happy with the formula and the colour payoff and I will definitely stick to this in the future when I want a softer, more complimentary brow. This would be a perfect shade for blondes and strawberry blondes alike.
