My Top Five Beauty Products From Whole Foods

The only department in Whole Foods that I normally skip is the beauty department. It's true. I guess I've always just felt that the Whole Foods beauty department contained products that would be of little or no interest to me due to them smelling weird or my assumption that they were ineffective.

Eyeko Skinny Mini Duo Review

Last spring I tried the strange and amazing Eyeko Skinny Brush Mascara with pretty great results I might add. Originally launched in the UK, Eyeko Mascaras have crossed the pond and taken up residence in Sephora stores all across the country, at Sephora inside JCPenney’s and at Sephora.com. Now beauty industry veterans Max and Nina Leykind have created an über easy to use precision eyeliner too. Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner Black hit stores in August of this year.

As if that wasn’t enough good news, Eyeko has created the Skinny Mini Duo ($16), a mini Skinny Brush Mascara and a Skinny Mini Liquid Eyeliner in black.  This is a perfect set to keep in your makeup bag for touch-ups, as a stocking stuffer or for travel.  Read more

Makeup Review: Eyeko Skinny Brush Mascara

Does the type of mascara brush you use make a difference in the appearance of your lashes? Or is it the formula the determines their look? What if your mascara tube was squeezable, to shed the excess from clumping on your lashes? Eyeko’s Skinny Brush Mascara was shaping up to deliver elongated lashes because it had all three components. The look it aimed to create was one of intense, glossy black lashes that won’t flake.

But did it deliver on its promises? Yes and no.

Eyeko Skinny Brush Mascara is a small tube of mascara in a time when everything seems to be “Colossal” in size. Big tubes, big wands, promising big lashes. The packaging is described as a zero-waste squeezy tube, so as you pull the wand out, you squeeze the tube and remove the excess formula from filling up the bristles. This mascara also comes with an eyeko Shield, which is really a guitar pick, and is supposed to be used to help lengthen lashes, although I didn’t find it much help at all and it made some of my lashes stick together rather than separate or lengthen them (and if you are not coordinated, you’ll find it very awkward to use.)   Read more
