Eyeko For Everyone
London’s cutest cosmetics (their tag, not mine) are fun, flirty and fashionable. For the frugal shopper, you’ll love the price point – between 3 and 5 pounds (about 5 to 9 dollars) a product! The packaging is incredibly cutesy, reminiscent of Japanese brands with a Manga twist, pink containers, girly characteture drawings and silver embroidery.
The company offers everything from delicious fruity lip balms, to bright colored polishes to 3-in-1 eye, face and highlighter creams. Ladies, I guarantee you’ll find a product here that will replace one of your more costly versions…
Products to Try:
Strawberry Fat Balm – An amazing “bigger-boned” lippy and cream cheeky. This sheer shade of berry enhances natural lip color while offering exceptional moisture (like my all-time fave Labello, but less red). The satiable strawberry scent is simply an added perk! Also comes in raspberry and minty iridescent pink. 5 pounds.
Eyeko Macara – It comes in a squeeze tube as opposed to a cylinder. The formula is pretty fantastic, elongating lashes and painting them patent black. The brush is thin and tiny (I’m usually a fan of big plastic ones — no, not that you dirty minds!) but it does the trick. It has widely dispersed bristles for evenly coated, long lashes. I did have to use my trusty tweezerman lash seperator as the mascara tended to clump a bit, but I was so impressed that the formula didn’t feather or flake. It lasted all night (even after a massage AND steam)! 5 pounds.
Touch Up & Glow Highlighter – Move over Benefit’s Highbeam, Eyeko’s highlighter is just as pinky-iridescent for a fraction of the price. And I LOVE the pen application (just like YSL’s Touche Eclat Radiant Touch). It makes application a breeze, and lets you navigate with ease and precission. Here are some tips from the Eyeko experts on application: “For a soft focus sheen brush on to brow and cheek bones to lighten and lift. For fuller lips highlight the cupids bow and wake up eyes with just a touch on the inner corners of your eyes.” Love me a great multi-tasking product. 5 pounds.
Recession? What recession? Try away… no excuses, ladies!
