Illamasqua Gel Sculpt Review

I picked up this product in a recent Beauty Bay sale where it was reduced down to £20 (compared to the £25 retail price), I’ve had my eye on this product ever since my friend’s wedding where the makeup artist used it on her and it looked amazing!

The gel itself comes in three shades, two blush shades (Charm and Fluster) and one contour shade called Silhouette.  I was sceptical about buying a contour shade that appeared so dark in the tube as I’m extremely fair skinned, however the reviews on the website were very encouraging explaining that it was a very buildable product and suitable for even the most pale of people.
The product itself is a gel like (hence the name I’m sure!) cream consistency and it comes as a stick, this makes it very user-friendly.  Once applied to the skin it doesn’t feel heavy and it blends out like a dream!  I use this product either on its own without any foundation or on the top of a foundation and both finishes are fantastic.  The one thing that I would say is that I would always apply it before applying any powder products as it won’t blend out and create a “cake” face if applied after powder.

I started off quite hesitant with applying and applied a small amount to where my contour would usually sit (in the hollows of my cheeks) and blended it out, after my initial trial, I realised that I could indeed use more product for a more effective contour without it looking too dark or muddy on my complexion.

After using this a few times I have extended my application to include around my forehead and when going “full-glam” contouring my jawline and nose.

I would say that this is an extremely versatile product and well worth the money I spent on it.
