Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner Review, Photos and Swatches!

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner ($15) is a felt-tip liquid eyeliner pen with a long-lasting, no-smudge formula and a glossy finish.

The Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner is available in (5) shades: Olive Green, Brown, Purple, Navy Blue and Black. All shades are available on the Eyeko website, but only Black is sold at Sephora, while the other shades can be purchased online.

I've tried several pen liners from the drugstore, and my favorite has to be Physician's Formula 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner because of the non-fraying, flexible, yet precise tip that doesn't seem to dry out and the overall performance, but it's not the deepest-darkest black, so when I want a very intense liner, I look no further than my Eyeko pen.

The liner is a deep-black with a glossy finish and the tip is firm and comes to a fine point. Although you can create thick or thin lines, I find it much easier to create thicker lines because for the highest amount of pigmentation, pressing it sideways on your lid and sweeping the pen across the eye is the most effective. The tip seems to dry out quickly, so applying the liner straight-on with the tip isn't going to work the best.

Eyeko Skinny Brush Mascara Review!

Eyeko Skinny Brush Mascara

Eyeko Skinny Brush Mascara ($19) is a lengthening mascara with conditioning ingredients to promote growth and prevent breakage. It's an ultra-black, glossy formula that doesn't flake or flake.

Formulated without: •Sulfates •Synthetic Fragrances •Synthetic Dyes •Petrochemicals •Phthalates •GMOs •Triclosan

The tube design is pretty unique. The product is in-cased in a sturdy squeeze tube. It's great because you can get every last drop of the product out, just like a tube of toothpaste. With the standard mascara tube design, you're pretty much missing the product at the very top and bottom (like the old Urban Decay Primer Potion packaging  ugh, awful).

The brush design is.. well.. different. It's skinny and has a spiral bristle design. I'm not exactly convinced that it's a very effective design. It's a little awkward, and I notice that it doesn't coat my lashes evenly, as more product seems to gather at the base of my lashes, than the rest of my lash. With continued coats, it evens out, but can get clumpy. *To avoid clumpy lashes, wipe any excess product off the brush before applying.

With this mascara in particular, I prefer applying the coats continuously without allowing my lashes to dry in-between. It builds very well, and there are less clumps because you aren't re-dipping your brush until you get to the other eye.

The result? I found my lashes to look very curled (no lash curler necessary!) and the super black formula makes my lashes stand out, even from a distance. It also gives a little extra length and volume. My only real gripe is that it causes many of my lashes to clump together. So, keeping a clean spoolie handy will be your new BFF with this mascara.

My lashes before (no primer or lash curler used) and my lashes after (bear in mind that my lashes have NOT been combed though to separate any clumps).

Review: Eyeko Cream with Extra Glow (3 in 1) + Photos & Swatches!

Product Description: "Eyeko Cream with Extra Glow is a multitasking highlighter with all the benefits of your favorite cult classic Eyeko Cream. This NEW dreamy pink cream is loaded with micro light reflecting pigments perfect for creating a soft focus sheen. Add a flattering highlights to brow and cheek bones, your cupids bow, even collar bones and shins for a touch of moonlit magic." - source:

Eyeko Cream with Extra Glow can be purchased at for $14.00 (USA). Click here to be re-directed to the product page.
The product looks somewhat similar to Benefit High Beam, so I did a side by side swatch on my hand for comparison.
They look almost identical in color and luminosity. The only difference is Benefit High Beam appears a tiny bit more pink.

Once blended, I can barely tell them apart.

My thoughts: I've had this product for a couple of months now and I really like it. It claims to be a highlighter, eye cream and moisturizer all in one. I like to use this product as a highlighter/illuminator for my face and under my eyes. The consistency of the cream is like the texture of a body butter. It's not very soft and creamy nor is it thin and watery. It feels very condensed, but to the touch it is lightweight and slippery. I wouldn't call this product a moisturizer. I didn't find it to moisturize at all. (Based on man reviews I've read, others said the same) But I love it as a brightening product for my face. How I typically apply it is by first prepping my face with moisturizer and then taking a tiny bit of the cream with my fingertip and rubbing it all over my face (as I would apply any moisturizer). Other times I take a little in my palm and mix it in my hands with my moisturizer and apply it all over my face. Using a moisturizer helps spread the product more evenly over my face. If you have dry skin, I recommend you mixing it with a moisturizer, as it may not apply evenly. I haven't had any problems myself. My face is left glowy and radiant. It doesn't leave my face looking greasy, oily or like a disco ball (lol). I haven't found it to be drying and I haven't had any skin reactions to it despite my sensitive skin. I really like using this under my eyes prior to the application of my concealer. I feel like it provides a nice illuminating base for my concealer to sit on. Once I apply my foundation (depending on which I use - with heavy coverage foundations, there is little to no difference. Its more evident with a lighter, dewy foundation) I do notice a slight brightness to my face. I have tried applying this over my foundation by patting it on my cheek bones with my finger or my MAC 131 brush (as I would apply Benefit Moon Beam) and I didn't like the look of it. It actually dulled my cheek and because of the high amount of pearl, it almost made my foundation in that area look gray. So, Benefit is much better for using OVER foundation. But, I really do like this under foundation and under my eyes and I even use it sometimes on my neck and chest mixed with a little lotion or jojoba oil for an extra healthy glow. This is a product I would re-purchase. Plus Eyeko has coupon codes all of the time, so you can purchase it for pretty cheap.

NOTD & Review of Eyeko Nail Polishes!

From Left to Right: Vampira Polish (Black with fine red glitter), Tea Rose Polish (A true mauve) & Coral Polish (A bright coral red).

The swatches in this picture are very true to color. Especially "Tea Rose" which looks a little brighter and pink in the 1st picture.

My favorite of all three is the Coral Polish and it's what I have on my nails today!

This is 2 coats, no top or base coat.

My Overall thoughts:
From what I see so far, these polishes are great. Coral and Tea Rose both have a similar formula. They are slightly thick, very opaque & apply very well with no streaks. Two coats is more than enough. Vampira is a little bit of a different formula. It is a lot thinner, and you need around 3 coats to achieve the actual color. I would highly recommend top coats with these polishes so you don't get any nicks on your nails. With thick polishes, they sometimes tend to dry like a soft plastic and you definitely need to protect them.

Eyeko Nail Polishes are $5.50 each and can be found here!

I really like the looks of Posh (taupe), Lilac & Nude.. all pictured above. :)

Do you own any Eyeko polishes? Which are your favs?

Eyeko Graffiti Eyeliner Pen Review, Photos and Swatches!

Eyeko Graffiti Eyeliner

Eyeko Graffiti Eyeliner Pen is a liquid liner pen with a precision brush that can be used to draw thick or thin lines.
Eyeko says: For fool proof eyeliner dot across the upper lid as close to the lashes as possible then simply join the dots! Wing it, flick it, have fun with it! Team with lashings of Eyeko Magic Mascara for a flirtatious flutter! 
Eyeko Graffiti Eyeliner Pen is smudge-proof, fade-proof and long lasting!
Eyeko Graffiti Eyeliner Pen is available in four (4) shades: Jet Black, Navy Blue, Brown and Purple.

This is a great liner pen in comparison to many I've tried.. such as ELF, Styli-Style, Milani & more. The pointed felt tip is very sturdy and doesn't bend or lose its shape during application. It's very simple to apply and (for me) the point makes it easy to create a precision line. It lasts all day with minor fading by night near the tear ducts of my eye. It's pretty budge proof. If you've made a mistake, it's best to fix it right away before it dries, with a wet q-tip. Once it's dry.. you'll need makeup remover. Yay for long lasting! Also, It doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes. Overall, I think it's a great product. The only con I can think of is, I wish the applicator was a little more soaked in product. I find it to be slightly dry.
