Eyeko is one of those brands I think of whenever I picture hip British girls wearing winged liner, ripped jeans, leather jackets and ankle boots with, like, purposefully messy, yet fabulous, hair.
Yeah…I’m nowhere near hip enough to pull off that look, LOL! But that doesn’t stop me from wearing their makeup from time to time.
Here are a few of their things I’ve been wearing lately (all of which are available now at Eyeko counters and online), and some of these are still new-ish for fall…
- Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner ($18) — New for fall, this stuff is dark, opaque and black — not black with blue or gray undertones, but black, as in black — and it dries to a matte finish.
The skinny tip is a little on the stiff side, which I don’t usually like, but I don’t mind this one. It works, and I can draw nice, smooth lines with it.
- Eyeko Me and My Shadow Waterproof Shadow Liners in Quartz and Taupe ($20 each) — I like both of these two new shades SO MUCH MORE than the Charcoal shade I tried last year (which fell out of the tube every time I opened it).
Both are semi-sheer; shimmery but not too shimmery; easy to blend, whether with the brush on the back end or with fingers; and they fully set in about five minutes.
Good for the makeup minimalists among us.
- Eyeko Sport Waterproof Mascara ($25) — Here’s a good waterproof mascara if you’re on the market. I like the lift, curl hold, length, waterproof-ness (holds up to sweat like a champ) and the deep black color.
Layers well, too. I believe it’s been in the Eyeko permanent line a while, but it’s still new to me.
- Eyeko Fat Liquid Liner ($18) — This stuff isn’t my favorite, because every time I take the short, stiff, chubby felt tip to my lash lines, I end up looking like a blindfolded cat did my liner…
It’s dark and opaque though.
