I had long ago given up on liquid eye-liner, instead relying on the lasting power of gel pots to keep my favourite look from sliding down my face, but that has all changed….
I’m pretty easily swayed when it comes to magazine freebies. There’s no way I would usually pick up a copy of Marie Claire (do I care what Kate Moss is wearing at Glastonbury, or how I can keep a man interested in 10 easy steps? NO!) but something made me pick up this month’s, and I can assure you that something was a little blue box.
I’d heard high praise of Eyeko‘s mascaras on a few other beauty blogs and thought I’d give it a go. Seeing as the eyeliner usually retails at £10 and the magazine was only £2.50 it was hardly a major investment, but now I’m so glad I decided to give it a try!
Here on the left I’m just about ready to leave for work, it was about 26 degrees outside, clammy, sticky and all around uncomfortable. I’ve just applied my face which explains why it isn’t running down my neck yet!
But what’s this! On the right, seven hours later after a manic night of rehearsals in a stuffy school my eyeliner has not budged one bit.
The tiny pen tip made it almost too easy to apply, and it was dry within seconds! The packaging is lovely (and metal ;) ) and I know 100% that my Skinny Mini will be joining me on the road and throughout festival season for a long time to come.
I literally cannot encourage you to go out and buy this enough, especially if you can track down a copy of Marie Claire.
You can buy Eyeko Skinny Mini Liquid Eyeliner here.
Totally hellbent for falling in love with liquid liner all over again!
