EYEKO - lashings of mascara


A mascara must have?

This was impulsive, researching for a new mascara for myself I kept falling back on very popular brand Eyeko. My previous experience of this brand has been in eyeliners only and it wasn't a happy meeting of liner and eyes - too dry.

I loathed them. 

But mascara, maybe they deserved another chance. 

They are priced fairly near the drugstore cost of mascara (depending which variation you go for), so that was a positive, they offered a wide choice of wands and promises of lengthening, thickening, bulking, separating - the usual mela of options.

The Blurb -

Conditioning Pro-vit B
Jet Black colour
No smudging,
Water resistant
Paraben free
Locks in colour for 12hrs +
Easy to remove

pout thoughts;

I love the packaging, really like the soft tube, the wand handle is short, again another plus with me - I find it gives far more control over the product and really enables me to reach every lash. 
Love the true black richness of this mascara, the wand holds the smallest amount of product but enough to coat my lashes and separate them. 
I like the wand but have found it gathers lashes into groups if I take too long working the wand through, they clump into gangs of four and won't be budged.
I do need several layers to achieve the look I like but I do like the mascara and wand. 

Although not a negative, I do find the product a devil to remove, (it is water resistant but NOT waterproof), it looks like it's gone but there are little specks on my face after cleansing.  The mascara really adheres to the lash line and this means cleansing carefully.

It wouldn't stop me buying this mascara again, I would look at other options in the range.
