Beauty Spotlight: Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner


by Sarah
Eyeko, which recently launched their Skinny Brush Mascara in Sephora stores nationwide earlier this year, is now making their best-selling online item available in Sephora, as well: their Skinny Liquid Eyeliner.  Makeup artist Polly Osmond uses this dramatic eyeliner on celebs like Victoria Beckham and even used it during New York Fashion Week at the Jen Kao runway show.  All of the models wore the popular "Disconnected Eye" look (see below for a mini-tutorial of this look), all done with this product.  Celeb fans of this eyeliner go on to include Alexa Chung and Lana Del Rey.  The super paraben-free formula features key ingredient Sodium Hyaluronate to ensure color glides on and stays on without fading or cracking.  

For London girls (which is where Eyeko is based), it has proved to be utterly fool-proof in delivering kitten flicks and Winehouse-wings with ease to replicate some of this season's hottest graphic eye trends.  

Cost: $15 at Sephora or Eyeko.com

Our Review: First off, I have to say that this product is fantastic! I can't say enough good things about this eyeliner! I think $15 is very reasonable for the quality of this product. Even if you are hesitant because you think $15 might be more than some eyeliners out there, I would definitely recommend the investment because it works. I have so many drugstore eyeliners that I have tried to save money on and I end up hating them because they are garbage and ultimately, throw them away.  

I don't change my eye makeup looks very often.  I basically can't because I have huge Italian eyes, so if I don't wear makeup, I look more tired than most and if I wear too much, I look like I have bug eyes.  So, since high school, I wear the same thing every day: some variation of nude or brown eye shadow, a thick line of eye liner on the lid, and mascara. With this being said, I have tried every black eyeliner out there and truly, nothing compares to Eyeko's Skinny Liquid Eyeliner. It is just like a Sharpie marker (and is as easy to apply as if you grabbed a Sharpie and drew it on) and is FOOL-PROOF.  Not only fool-proof, but you feel confident enough to walk a runway because your eyes look so dramatic and perfect.  It goes on thick right away, giving you a perfect line, and doesn't smudge easily throughout the day.  Another plus is that it comes off easily with makeup remover, like any other eye makeup you would normally wear.  

Watch out for a review of Eyeko's JUST RELEASED Black Magic Mascara in the upcoming week, which is promised to give you a combination of drama, volume, and curl that will last all day and all night.  


The Disconnected Eye: "Create a dramatic yet wearable look by applying the liner 1mm above the lash line. Wing it out slightly following the under eyeline upwards, ending in a flick to create a double fine line."- Makeup Artist Polly Osmond
