Hey lovelies, as you may already know, I’m a huge fan of Eyeko, their products are actually amazing, so I was so excited to bag some more of their goodies in the ASOS sale to do a review!
In my previous post, February Face, I mentioned that I religiously use Eyeko’s Black Magic mascara as it curls and defines my lashes… I’ve tried so many other brands, but honestly I only recommend this mascara, as its that good.
With mascara’s I’ve used in the past, I find they clump my lashes, making them look vile and quite spidery. I’ve never been a big wearer of mascara as I suffer from styes, however, after trying Eyeko’s Black Magic, I’ve found that I havent suffered with any, and I personally put that down to their specialist products – but, maybe that’s just my wishful thinking.
Since I’ve loved the Eyeko mascara for so long, but never tried any of their other products, I thought it would be a good time to try some others out… especially as good ole ASOS had 20% OFF 😉
I opted for two different products which promised to really make my eyes pop. ASOS have quite a good selection, however, if you go to Eyeko’s site, you get 20% off your first order and you can browse their whole selection. Anyway, I digress. I opted for Eyeko’s FAT liquid liner & Black Magic Lash Boost.
My makeup collection was in need of a new black eyeliner. I was loving Benefit’s They’re Real Eye Liner, but it was a bit fiddly to use and when I’m in a rush in the morning, its just not the one, so I thought I’d give it a try. This pen is exactly what I was looking for. Its like a sharpie – easy to use with pointed tip for a hassle free application, plus its an eyeliner that you can build, so you can start with a really thin line, and build its thickness from there… something not so easy to do with Benefit’s one. Perfecto!
The second item I bought was Eyeko’s Black Magic Lash Boost. As ASOS doesn’t have good descriptions about their products online, I thought I’d gamble with this product. As I already own the Black Magic Mascara, I thought this product would work perfectly alongside it, working more of a lash conditioner, to help lengthen my short lashes.
To my confusion, when I opened this package, it wasn’t a conditioner at all. This product is not of any liquid consistency, which I found baffling, I can only describe it as little fibres in a bottle.
After reading the description on Eyeko’s website I learned that these fibres attach to your lashes and help boost the length of them, hence the name – straight forward then… errrm, yeah right!
I already had on makeup and a tiny bit of mascara, but that was OK. The Lash Boost needs to be applied on top of mascara for the fibres to stick – clever technology ay! I started to apply the fibres to the tips of my lashes as recommended but the fallout was crazy, the fibres created so much mess.
As you can see my eyelids have loads of little ‘hairs’ on them. What you’re actually seeing are the fibres. After applying the Lash Boost, I just noticed hairs everywhere which was quite annoying. If I had actually slayed my makeup I would not have been happy,as the fibres would have ruined the look. Eyeko do warn about this problem, saying that they’re easy to brush off as they don’t stick but I didn’t find it was easy.
If anything, I would recommend using this product before anything else, but to be totally honest, I’m quite put off, as the fibres ended up really irritating my eyes, and I just looked like a hot mess (not happy)
After trying to clean up, I finished my adding another layer of mascara. You can keep on adding fibres and mascara alternately until you achieve your desired length, but after, all the irritation and mess, I gave up lol.
However, after just one application of Lash Boost I was pleasantly surprised… so i guess it wasn’t all bad. As I naturally have short lashes, using the combination of the Lash Boost and Black Magic Mascara I can honestly say I see a difference. What do you think?
To finish off, I tested out the FAT Liquid Liner and I loved using it! It’s soooo easy to use, it’s precise and can be built upon. I only tested a thin line, but I’ve been using it every day since I bought it. Unlike other eyeliners I’ve bought, it lasts throughout the day, and stays matte.
The Lash Boost has been a disappointing product for me, however, Eyeko’s mascara and eyeliner will continue to be a staple in my makeup collection, as their products do work and are quite innovative and fun to use.
Do you own any Eyeko products, what’s your favourite and will you be buying any of these? Let me know x
