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.
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.
