Review: Eyeko Makeup

I am so excited about this brand that I am just going to start off by saying I have found my new obsession and it is called Eyeko.  I have honestly not been this excited about makeup in a really long time…if ever.  Normally when it comes to makeup I am all about the lip glosses, but I am excited about EVERYTHING from Eyeko.  I have actually only tried their Fat Balm for lips and cheeks, the Liptastik Glossy Lip Pen and the Graffiti Eyeliner Pen, but if these three are any indication of how their makeup  perform then I want to try every single product from Eyeko.

In my experience, whenever a product is touted as a lip or cheek anything, it normally works best on either the lip or the cheek, but never both…not true of the Eyeko Fat Balm in Strawberry.  The balm looked great on my cheeks (it’s a sheer pink that gave my cheeks a really natural looking flush)and managed to stay put after a walk down Lincoln Road in South Beach, Miami on a 96 degree day.  When applied to my lips, it felt very moisturizing, not heavy and also stayed on my lips in the Miami heat and humidity.  The color on my lips was a natural shade of pink with just a touch of gloss…not super shiny at all, just very soft and pretty…I guess dewy and fresh would be good words to use.

I have been dying to try one of the brighter shades of pink glosses and lipsticks this summer but have not been able to find one that was flattering on my skin tone until I came across the Eyeko Liptastik Glossy Lip Pen in Loud Mouth.  The lip pen is a lip liner, color and gloss all in one.  Loud mouth is a vibrant pink that very weirdly manages to look both vibrant and soft on the lips.  It is a great blend of a gloss, liner and a lipstick…not as heavy as a lipstick, but also lasts much longer than a gloss.  I am sure it is not intended to be used as a blush, but I did use it as such and I loved it. I love that it functions as so many different things because I can definitely leave my entire makeup bag behind and just carry the lip pen around in a teeny clutch.

I normally shy away from liquid liner…or eye liner for the most part, unless a professional is doing it because it is such a pain for me to apply.  I can never seem to get both eyes to look the same and will normally remove everything and forgo the liner altogether, which is a huge bummer because I love the Sophia Loren/Eva Mendes bombshell/cat eye look, I just can never get it right with the liquid liners I’ve tried.  This struggle is all over now because the Eyeko Graffiti Eyeliner Pen in jet black was really easy for me to use. I managed to control the eyeliner pen during my entire eye lining application…a first.  The liner also stayed put (again in the Miami heat and humidity) until I used makeup remover.  I loved that on the Eyeko website they give tips on how to best apply the eye pen because I definitely needed it and it made things a lot easier for me.

On the Eyeko website it says that Eyeko means love in Japanese so here’s my stab at speaking Japanese…with a bit of English thrown in, I absolutely eyeko Eyeko! I forgot to mention how incredibly affordable every product from Eyeko is…so go forth and get the love, spread the love and maybe…big maybe, share the love.
