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?

  1. I got the pink eyeliner in my glossybox too. I also use it as a kind of brightener on my waterline, but it never lasts long. I haven't actually tried the mascara, the brush looks... interesting. Haha, I think it's one of those that you have to try to believe that it can actually lengthen and thicken your eyelashes! x

    1. I honestly couldn't recommend the mascara more! It's quite 'wet' in formulation, but I still love it and it is rivalled only by Lancome's Hypnose Doll Eyes (:

  2. I got the eyeliner too. Found it..so so. It looks nice and bright for a bit, but doesn't last long and isn't too visible. Definitely wouldn't buy it xx

    1. I definitely agree, it's beautiful on application, and I tried it as a colour base on my eyes today which worked a little better (: I probably wouldn't buy this either to be honest, I already have my Benefit liner for brightening up the eyes! xx

    1. Awh thank you Katie (: I'd definitely recommend their mascara, but the liner is overpriced for what you get from Powder Pink!

  4. I love eyeko - I remember when you interned with them! You posted their beautiful nail polishes and then I had to buy some.

    On a completely other topic - you have the most adorable little cursor! It's just so cute and mini.

  5. I've actually never tried Eyeko products!

    I am a fan of the Shu Uemura lash curler though :)

    1. It's one of the best mascaras I've tried, leaves my lashes so soft, curled and lengthy even when I've taken it off, really hard to explain but the formula is lovely and conditioning (:

  7. I also find that pencil liners don't last very long on me either. My mascara always smudges under my eyes too because of how my eyes and lashes are shaped. #Asiangirlproblems Does this mascara smudge or does it stay relatively put?

    On the other hand, your skin looks amazing!

    1. Mmm, kohl never lasts on me, I'm a gel liner girl! The mascara is quite "wet" in formulation, but as long as you're careful with applying it, there isn't any smudging! Thanks Alyse! xx

  8. I'm still using my humble Maybelline, which I really need to replace, actually! Ah, I've missed your blog, Michelle. Your new header is so awesome, I love the illustration!
