Eyeko review


I was kindly sent some products to try out from the company Eyeko.

I'm sure you have all heard of this brand, and it is especially well known here in the UK.
They do ship internationally however, so everybody should check out their website ;)

Anyway, here are the goodies I was sent:

The products came in this cute little Eyeko bag.


I received 3 pretty nail polishes from the Spring/Summer 2010 collection and a new product called Graffiti Eyeliner Pen.


I was super excited! :D


The Eyeko Graffiti Eyeliner Pen:

I am hopeless when it comes to liquid liner, and therefore rarely use it. I am one of those people who can NEVER apply a liquid liner correctly, it always ends up uneven and smudged...

So when I received this I was a bit hesitant to say the least. But of course I had to try out the product and to my great surprise I actually managed to draw a decent line! It's all down to the precision brush nib which is super easy to control! I managed to draw a thin line and a thick line and the felt-like tip doesn't have too much product on it so I didn't make a mess like I usually do :D 

The colour I received is a fierce purple, as it says on the website, and here is a hand swatch
(one light stroke only making a thick line and a thin line - check out the colour pay off!)

Now, I rarely use purple as I'm not sure it really suits me, but this comes in 4 colours, so I am definitely going to get a black one and maybe the navy blue one too... ;)


To sum up, I was pleasantly surprised by this product! It retails at £5 which is awsome. And I also have to mention that when I applied the liner on saturday, it lasted all day and night. Another major plus. Although the colour wasn't 100% 'me', it definitely impressed me enough to want to invest in some other colours :)



The Eyeko Nail Polishes:

I love nail polishes, so I was extremely excited about trying out these great new colours.

First of all, the packaging is super adorable! The nail polishes each have a unique design and a cute little 'saying' that describes the colour and the mood.

Here are some swatches of the 3 polishes I was sent (excuse my poor dry cuticles):


Coral Polish
Dreaming of Ipanema beach? This flattering coral bright will get your toes resort-ready.



Tea Rose Polish
A soft pink cream that is the picture of pastoral elegance.



Vampira Polish
Dare to wear this lust-worthy glossy black lacquer dripping with blood red shimmer.


I quite like all 3, but the dusky rose coloured one is my favourite! It will look even better when I have a tan :)

The Coral one is such a fun, bright (!) colour. It's very easy to apply, just two applications and the colour really POPs!

Vampira is more of a night time kind of colour, to me anyway. It was a little bit harder to apply evenly than the other two.

...
So that's the 3 colours I was sent. Looking at the different polishes on the website though, I already have my eyes on two more...

Vintage Polish and Lilac Polish look amazing, and at £3.50 you really can't go wrong.

Overall, I am very impressed by the Eyeko products I was sent. They have definitely left me wanting more :)



Have you tried any of Eyeko's products? What can you recommend?

  3. I've never tried any eyeko stuff before - I remember having a massive wishlist YEARS ago for them and then they seemed to disappear for ages and have just come back round? Their nail varnishes look good though and I am a fan of those eyeliner pens :)
