I had been often thinking about something like Illamasqua sealing gel which can make my favorite eye shadows as eyeliner and after using this gel I can use my favorite powder eyeshadow and pigments as eyeliner very easily. It's an exciting activity which gives a change to my makeup routine. Today a short review of this sealing gel.

In the mirror of my own experience
I love to use my most favorite eye shadows on my eyes as an eyeliner. In this way, we can give some new way to our makeup look. When I tried it first, that was really an exciting experiment and the result was just amazing. The effect which I got, was fantastic, I'll show you how it happened but first one quick view of its packaging.
Illamasqua Sealing Gel comes in a tiny small black bottle with same color lid. The packaging is good and can be carried out in the purse very easily. After opening the lid, you can drop the liquid direct onto your shadows/pigments.
The way of using
At first I tried this sealing gel with my favorite RBR pigment. I took out some amount of the pigment in RBR pigment's cap and then dropped just two drop of the sealing gel into the pigment, mixed it with my eyeliner brush and then applied it on my hand, first as shadow then as eyeliner. After this trial, I used it with some other favorite eye shadows and always loved the result. You can use it as a creamy eyeshadow base , liner or you can even apply it alone on your entire lid and trust me you'll love its effect in every way.

I applied my Sleek Makeup eye shadow as a liner on my eyes using this sealing gel recently in a party and it lasted almost 6-7 hours without fading.The Sealing gel does make the eye shadows waterproof but if you rub it with fingers, it will start to fade,but otherwise you'll require a good eye makeup remover to wipe it off completely.
Cute small packaging.
Very easy to use.
The quantity is too less but you just need two or three drops to intensify the eye shadow.
It's water proof and I didn't find my liner smudging or smearing.
This sealing gel opens doors for so many looks and experiments with your eyes.
This is a wonder product, but no doubt,very expensive.
Not available in India.
I'm very happy with this wonderful product. I love to apply different color eyeliners on my eyes these days so now it has become very easy with this product. The only disappointing part is its cost which is too high to see the quantity. So It'll be difficult to afford by every makeup lover. But overall, I want to appreciate Illamasqua to launch a wonderful product that can do some amazing work.
It's costly but if you can afford it and love to do different experiments with your eye makeup, you should definitely try it out.
