I’ve been an Eyeko girl for quite some time now. ‘Quite some time’ meaning I remember them in their Superdrug days, I collected their little nail varnishes with the cute doodles, interned with them a year or two ago and watched the brand flourish into a Harvey Nichols exclusive. Eyeko’s rebrand has since meant that all other products have vanished from the core collection, leaving the focus on the eyes, and has seen a price increase across all products.
I received the ‘new’ Eyeko Skinny Brush mascara at Fashion Week this season, when one of their interns approached Elodie and I after a show. The formula, brush and packaging is exactly the same as their old Big Eyes mascara, if you remember that: a skinny, thin brush that looks a little lacklustre but is always up there, vying for ‘best mascara’ in my make-up bag. It leaves my lashes longer and holds a decent curl (for reference, I use Shu Uemura lash curlers), as well as leaving my lashes feeling conditioned afterwards. It is supposed to be infused with Vitamin E to nourish and care for your delicate lashes, and gimmick or not, I do believe this! My eyelashes are notoriously, well, Asian. Think short, sparse and straight lashes, and you’ve got mine described in a nutshell! I’d definitely recommend this and potentially would splurge the £15 for a tube.
This Skinny Eyeliner in Powder Pink arrived in one of my Glossyboxes and while I like the idea of it, I’ve only used it about three times. Pencil liners never last long on my eyes, and as a neutral shade that would be worn on the waterline, this doesn’t stand much chance! It’s a lovely, brightening shade, similar to Benefit’s Eye Bright which I used to use daily until it mysteriously disappeared from my make-up bag! The long, spindly packaging is a godsent for precision and handling too, despite it looking awkward and out of place amongst my other products. If I were to buy this myself, I’d probably opt for the Dove Grey, which looks super pretty.
What do you think of Eyeko’s mascara? Is it one of your favourites too?
