ILLAMASQUA EYEBROW CAKE IN STARK (AUBURN)

I don’t know how long it has been since I done a beauty post but by the look of my blogs page, it has been ages, so thought I had better include this “little” beauty for you all. The reason I state little, is quite simply because it’s so small and tiny I was really surprised when I received the package to find such a small cute box inside I initially thought it would be much larger but quite frankly it’s not. Don’t get me wrong this will last you ages as the product is very compact and I am very impressed with the results so far.

I first heard about this little beauty on a blog I follow and read weekly called Mascara and Maltesers she does great beauty posts and after reading her review on the Brow Cake in Motto I knew I had to try it out for myself as I was getting tired of using the same old body shop brow kit which was much darker than my hair colour so I thought why not get a shade that matches my hair colour so opted for the Auburn Brow Cake in (Stark) from Illamasqua. 
 
I have heard so much about Illamasqua products but never thought to buy anything until now so this is my first ever review for this brand. I was so excited to receive the product to try as it’s much different to my normal makeup and very unique especially the packaging it’s just incredible and comes in a sleek black compact that’s more than easy to carry about in your makeup bag. The shade was much lighter than I expected and packs great pigment so I was pleasantly surprised when applying the product to find it blending in very well with my natural brow and not looking caked on our out of place as to speak. The product was nice and light and easy to apply with an average brow brush giving light strokes and great colour, for the price I find it worth the investment as it will last months as it will stay in good condition with the compact packaging to protect the product from bacteria and general damage,  it also includes a small mirror making it a handy edition to have on any night out.
 
I can’t get over the packaging it’s incredible I just love the unique designs and shapes however it’s easy to get fingerprints all over the container as it’s very sleek as you can see in the (photos above). 
 
The product lasts hours and does not fade away which is a bonus! I also place some black or dark brown eyebrow powder in the centre where the arch of the eyebrow starts to add definition and this really helps open up the eyes by shading in and highlighting the arch. 
 
Product Negatives: 
  • Packaging was a lot smaller than I initially thought 
Product Positives: 
  • Nice Sleek Packaging and Design
  • Amazing Colour Pigment 
  • Beautiful, Natural Shade
  • Long Lasting Wear and Easy to Remove
  • Compact Product Lasting Months
  • Easy to Apply and Blend
 
What are your thoughts on this product? 
 
xo, Jenny

    I’m intrigued to see what this looks like swatched or on the brows as it looks like it has quite a dark pink tone to it. I am yet to read a bad review on an Illamasqua product though 🙂 xx

    Glad that you had a positive experience with Illamasqua products! I’ve not tried many of their cosmetics, mainly just a couple of blushes. It’s good to hear that this eyebrow cake was long lasting, very pigmented and it seems a little would go a long way.

    I’m a big fan of Illamasqua too, I’ve been meaning to try this for a while as it always seems to get rave reviews. Currently I use a MAC eyeshadow (brun) but could do with something a little closer to my actual hair colour! I think when it runs out I’m going to try one of these 🙂

      Wow great stuff I have not seen much beauty reviews on your blog would be great if you did ;D I have not actually tried anything from MAC yet :O shock horror haha but need to as love the lipstick shades xx

    Love high pigmented eyebrow shades, i have just bought myself a sleek eyebrow palette and have been impresses so far as it is so pigmented, the box of it was tiny too though which was a slight disappointment. Your blog is really great. I have followed you. If you want to maybe take a look at my blog? Thank you xx

      I thought the exact same but decided to get this as my first purchase and couldn’t be happier with the results excited to buy more near Christmas x

  24. 13th October 2013 / 6:53 PM

    I was just about to comment saying how much I love this, then I realised you mentioned me so thank you so much! I’m so glad you like it, and found a replacement for your Body Shop one.

    I have been using mine for weeks now and haven’t even made a dent into the powder, so its small but very long lasting for sure. Lovely review!
