One of the first questions my best friend Sarah asks me when we see each other is always, “What kind of mascara are you using these days?” We bond over makeup and our lifelong quest for the perfect product … especially mascara. When I told her about the Eyeko Mascara Wardrobe, she was all ears. I love to see what other ladies are into, so every couple of weeks I browse the Best Sellers section on Sephora.com. That’s where I first saw Eyeko’s Mascara Wardrobe. ($28) If it’s a best seller, my assumption is there’s got to be a lot to love!
What’s really cool about this is that it comes with 1 mascara, but 3 different brushes … for 3 different eyelash looks. In this set, you get the three-in-one conditioning formula with Carbon Black finish. A super glossy black mascara formula that’s extra-thick. (That means you only need 2 coats!) You also get three brushes to define, curl, and volumize. The brushes are interchangeable, but only 1 can live in the mascara. The other two have their own containers for storing.
While I love the idea of having 3 different wands, there is a downside to this. There’s a good amount of upkeep that comes along with that. Since only 1 wand can live in mascara, the other 2 must be washed each time and put away. For me, that’s a hassle and a little too time consuming for busy mornings … but … I do have to say, depending on your mascara needs, it might be worth it. This is the perfect set for someone who travels a lot and likes to change up their makeup look daily. Personally, I can’t really see a difference in my lashes when I use the different brushes, but my best friend Sarah completely disagrees. Her lashes look totally different when she switches up her brush and uses a curl, define, or volume specific brush. My lashes curl naturally, so the curl brush doesn’t do much for me. After trying all three, I felt like the define brush gave me a good amount of volume. Define was definitely my favorite brush from the wardrobe.
Another notable thing I found about Eyeko’s mascara and that it really stays put once applied. If you are a gal that often rubs her eyes and ends up with mascara smeared all over her face, that’s not going to happen with Eyeko mascara. On the flip side, you could also say that’s kind of hard to remove, even with eye makeup remover. I like to see the glass half full, so I like the fact that it doesn’t flake onto my cheeks or smudge.
Enriched with Shea butter and pro-vitamin B, the formula itself feels conditioning to your lashes. Also super important, it’s formulated without parabens, sulfates, or phthalates.
I have to say, there are more things to love about Eyeko’s Mascara Wardrobe than to hate. Cleaning the brushes after each use can be tedious, but the formula gets thumbs up. I must say … as I sit here typing this, hours after applying my makeup, I LOVE the fact that my lashes are soft and conditioned … opposed to brittle and flaky like other mascaras tend to make my lashes feel. Personally, I could do without the other two brushes and be 100% happy with Eyeko’s incredible formula applied with the define brush.
