I received the Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner Pen Mini in a Birchbox a few months ago and after using the Eyeko Lash Curler I was exited to see if this lived up to my expectations of the brand. It is so easy to use and the results are PERFECT. Look through any recent Instagram photos of me wearing eyeliner; I'm wearing this!
I've been using eyeliner pens by L'oreal and Bombshell for about a year after a colleague introduced me to them, but I always struggled to get the flick perfect. Usually this is because the pen is too thick and too "felt-tipped" that it goes a little bit blotchy. I can never get a straight flick by using these pens and usually have to top up with another product. This can be incredibly frustrating and has resulted in my taking off all my makeup in anger!
The Eyeko eyeliner is perfect for creating a quick flick. It is thin enough to outline the shape you want and to fill it in without getting it everywhere and it creates a smooth, bold shape. I wouldn't say I've got a steady hand in the slightest but this pen is very comfortable to hold and it is easy to remove if you make a mistake, which in turn makes me feel more relaxed when using it, resulting in the perfect flick!
During the day I never have to top up my eyeliner. It lasts such a long time and never smudges unless you run a wipe across it. It's so important to me that a product is long lasting. I need something that I don't have to top up halfway through the day in the toilet at work! On the rare occasions that I go out after work, it stays put, from morning through til night. It's fantastic!
I've used my pen non-stop for a few months and it's only just starting to run low, but I will definitely purchase another.
For just £12, it's only a little bit more than your average highstreet brand, but remember you are paying for quality! Now I've found THE eyeliner for perfect cat eyes I won't be looking back.
