Illamasqua Angled Eye Liner Brush

I have quite a lot of the Illamasqua brushes so was eager to buy their new Angled Eye Liner Brush (£15). Its quite a bit smaller than their brow brush, although the brush textures are very similar. The brush is very firm but does not feel harsh against the skin. Compared to the MAC 266 (which I used as my main angled liner brush) there is a lot less give in the Illamasqua one, and it keeps its shape, whereas the MAC one frays out a bit. The angle of the MAC one is steeper. In terms of performance I find that the illamasqua one gives a more precise line, but I can get closer to the lash line with the MAC one.
Pictures of the three to compare (angled one on top).
Its a nice addition to my ever increasing brush collection, I really like Illamasqua brushes, my stand outs are still their powder brush and blush brush 1 though.


  1. I have yet to try their brushes. Thanks for the pictures.

  2. I love my Illamasqua highlighter and body kabuki brushes (sooo soft), I would like to try some of their other brushes although probably not this one as I find it easier to use the thinner liner brushes then the angled ones.

  3. Hi Kristie,
    Thanks, there are really good considering they are all synthetic.

    Hello Meeta,
    I was really tempted by the body kabuki but don't think it would get much use. I know what you mean about a thinner line, I'm tempted to try some of the Louise Young ones as they look really precise.
