Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner in Black

I have wanted to try Eyeko’s Skinny Liquid Eyeliner for quite a while but have seen mixed reviews and with a bit of a price tag have restrained myself. However when I was in my local newsagents and spotted it as the free gift with Glamour magazine last month, I couldn’t resist spending the £2 for it! What a bargain!
So the mixed reviews I has seen stated that it was hard to use, goes crusty on your eyes and also dries out pretty quickly. Well I have been using it for a couple of weeks now and have to say I am pretty impressed with it.
For sooo long now I dream of being able to do eyeliner flicks to match the great eye flicks of Alexa Chung and Zooey Deschanel. I have a long way to go but I’m a believer that with practice I may get there one day! At the moment I am cursed with being able to do one eye spot on and the other looks like a child has done it. However I will persist!
I tend to use gel eyeliners to do mine but it’s a bit of a faff with the whole pot and a brush, especially if you want to just tidy it up while you’re out. I have tried pens in the past and find they don’t really show up on my lids. So I was really chuffed when this one went on a nice dark black and shock horror stayed like that! It dries pretty quickly so you don’t need to worry about smudging it and I found the brush so easy to use. It allowed me to get closed to my eye line and with its pointed tip I was able to be pretty precise.
Eyeko states that their pen is smudge proof and fade proof, over the couple of weeks I have been using this pen I would have to agree that it’s true. It lasts most of the day and stays put! I definitely recommend this product and when it runs out I may treat myself to it now.


  1. I've heard nothing but bad things about this product, but you've described it perfectly. Sounds like a dream, the fact that it's a dark black and doesn't smudge or move anywhere really appeals to me.
    I need to find the perfect liner, at the moment especially with it being so hot, that mixed with oily lids - my liner just goes off where it wants to, not where I want it to stay haha.
    Gutted I didn't take advantage of it when it was with the Glamour magazine - I was put off by all the bad reviews >.<

    1. I know, I heard so many bad reviews so I wasn't expecting too much! So glad I gave it ago though as its fab and I've been using it most days! xxx

  2. I love this product too. :) I picked up a back-up of the black one and the navy one too! It was such a bargain with the £2 Glamour magazine.

  5. I got this free in Glamour too, but actually really dislike it! Mine was pretty dry right from the start and draws on patchy haha. I think I have oily eyelids though so that might explain why it doesn't draw on very well!
