Illamasqua Art Of Darkness Collection: Precision Ink in Alchemy

I am so excited! I love summer but there are moments one wishes it is fall/winter already...and one of them is the new collection from Illamasqua called Art Of Darkness. What can I say about Illamasqua? I LOVE this brand and not only their nail polish :) Now if you think of their beautiful packaging and the whole image, it is one of my favourite make up brands (bye bye MAC).
Today I want to show you a product from their new collection - the Precision Ink in shade Alchemy.

what Illamasqua says: "Precision Ink - an iconic pen with a fine tip allowing for defined, precise application for the face and body. It dries within seconds and stays color true from dusk until dawn..."

The liner comes in a sleek black tube. I found it very easy to work with. I like the handle, it is nice to hold and long, so you have control of what you are doing. The tip is very precise (click on the picture to see it in a full size - I left it big). I took a picture of the pen with the Illamasqua polish in Spartan so you can have an idea of how big it is. It contents 1.8ml of product.

Now about the color. It is a very pigmented yellowish gold. It shines like crazy. I swatched it with the Illamasqua Liquid Metal in the shade Solstice so you can see the difference. Now the best part is how long it lasts. What Illamasqua says about the product is absolutely true. I put it on my hand waited a few moments and then tried to rub it off, no matter how hard I tried it styed! Wow! I tried it after a few hours and it was the same. Makes you think...will it go off? :) oh yes, with an oil based remover, no problem.

And here is a quick look I made with it. I love the combination of purple and gold. I did a sleeping eye so you can see the pen :) I have oily lids but that was no problem, it stayed on.

The precision liner will also be available in black (the shade is named Abyss - love it). When it comes out I am for sure buying it too. This stuff is great! If you don´t want to miss the launch of the Art Of Darkness Collection watch The Official Illamasqua blog.

  4. Becky: I am sure you will love it!

    Lady C: it is :)

  5. GORGEOUS!!! pretty pretty eyeeeeball too haha!

  6. Páni, poslintala jsem zamilovane monitor. Je to úžasný a jestli tak perfektně drží, tak je nákup celkem jasný. Mimochodem ten aplikátor/štěteček mi připomíná fotky linek z MAC kolkce Fab Felines..

  7. Ooh! It's so pigmented and pretty!

  8. Ježiš to je nádherná zlatá! Taková čistá, ne jako staré zašlé zlato, to nemám ráda. A s fialovými stíny (nejsou to MAC Togetherness?) to vypadá opravdu hodně dobře. Asi je taky potřebujuuuu :-D

  9. love love love that look! which eyeshadows did you use please?

  10. kellie: hey, thanks girl!

    Day: půjčim na vyzkoušení, ale opravdu je perfektní :)

    Lisa: I love it

    kittypolishnbags: thanks

    viennettka: jojo, je to opravdu čistá zlatá, leskne se nádherně. Stíny jsou Urban Decay.

    Paillette: thanks

    Vedra: oh thank you, it was just very quick :) The eyeshadow is Urban Decay Ransom and a bit of black

  11. Fialko, jak to děláš, že nás všechny tak mučíš ?!? :O :P

  12. I love this combo of colours! I already have UD Ransom, so I can copy your idea! ;)
    This eyeliner is really pretty, I've just read a fabulous review/preview of it by the italian make up artist Clio, so I think I will include it in my first Illamasqua order!

  13. Would you happen to know how much Illamasqua Precision Ink will cost in USD? I know it's £16.50 but the U.S. prices don't convert exactly from pounds. I am eyeing MAC Superslick Liquid Eyeliner in Pure Show (also a gold color), but might choose to wait for Precision Ink instead.

    Thank you for the review as well as the beautiful swatches and EOTD!

  14. Katko, asi to bude štěstím na super značky, u kterých se člověk ani zklamat nemůže :)

    Cristina: honestly I really recommend this product, it is lovely. I am wearing it again today and I love it!

    Justine: sorry, I don´t know that information but I can ask :) Glad my post was helpful.
