Eyeko Skinny Liquid Liner

IMG_0739

 I’ve had a few of these over the past year or so from various beauty boxes and every one has been terrible. Dry and useless. I just couldn’t understand the hype, why Alexa Chung would willingly promote it (let alone pretend it’s her favourite) – I just didn’t get it.. until I received a full sized one in last months Glamour. Totally different, wet, not at all difficult to use.. the smaller ones – obviously duds, Alexa – not a liar after all, hype – deserved.

Under normal circumstances I am not a fan of felt tip eyeliners, I’m a traditional liquid, flexible brush kinda gal. The main issue I have with the firmer nibbed variety is drag, my eyes are still young but they’ve never been what I’d call ‘tight’ – some people naturally have those facelift looking eyes,  gorgeously stretched across their faces.. not me, round, on the smaller side and hooded. Not the easiest to work with but I’ve never had a problem with the traditional method. This is the first felt tip I’ve actually successfully drawn a line with, the picture below was a quick test on a day old makeup-ed face but with practice it’s getting even easier.

I’m still not ready to get rid of my trusty old favourites but if like me you’d written off felt tip liners I would absolutely recommend you give this a go..

Available for £12 online here

    I have to say i’d never even heard about Eyeko before Alexa’s input! I also received this in Glamour and I find it really fantastic – even expensive ones seem to fade throughout the day, but the Eyeko peen seems to have great staying power!

    I love the lipstick! Such a gorgeous shade. I enjoyed my eyeko from glamour this month as well, collection does a good one too if you want more like it for a bargain x

    I picked this eyeliner up with Glamour too and think it will be one of those ‘practice takes perfect’ products where ‘perfect’ will actually be achievable once I’ve got to grips with it!

    Actually seems a pretty good liner but do adore that shade of lipstick

    I’ve also done a review on this! However I still think that they’re disappointing! I really don’t understand the hype!

    I’ve heard a few people say their minis were dried up but mine has been fine. Might be the luck of the draw I guess?

    I’m not a fan of liner pens either but I did used to have a purple eyeko one and it was pretty good. It’s dried out now, it’s pretty old. But I’m a fan of eyeko!

    I had one of these in glamour magazine and found it to be the worst Liner I have ever used, it was dry, it dragged and was really patchy. Did I just get a dud? http://alittlebirdee1.blogspot.com/

    I received one ages ago in my beauty subscription box and wasn’t too wow-ed. Maybe I’ll have to give it another go with the full-size! Do you have a preference between this and the Stila one?

    I also received this with Glamour magazine. Mine seems to have dried out or run out and I’ve only used it twice! It’s as though there isn’t any product left so you have to press down quite hard which just makes it look sloppy. It’s a shame because it’s a lovely navy blue and it seriously does not budge!
