EYEKO Skinny Liquid Eyeliner- REVIEW!! (Easiest way to nail the Cat-Flick)


I have been sporting cat-flicks/winged eye liner almost everyday for the past one year. Crazy i know, but then i love the way it instantly lifts my otherwise droopy eyes. I also find it much more glamorous than just drawing a line across your eyes..lol!
Today im reviewing the Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner that i purchased from beautybay.com. I had never used a felt pen eyeliner before so this was a new experience for me.

Packaging (Rs.1000/-for 2ml)

The eyeliner comes in this silvery-grey pen form. The packaging is pretty decent ... Nothing to write home about.

Product

The pigmentation of the liner is awesome. It is one of the most pigmented blacks that i have come across. I have been a Maybelline Gel Liner user all my life and was pretty happy with it until i came across Eyeko. The finishing of the Eyeko liner is glossy and dark that puts the Maybelline one to shame.



Also the tip of the liner is of perfect length...neither too long nor awkwardly short, its just right.
Because of the sharp tip of the Eyeko Skinny liner, it is so easy to draw precise lines which is difficult to do with a brush. Also you can easily layer with the liner for thick or thin lines and it doesn't flake like many others. Drawing cat-flicks has never been easier... the pointed tip of the eyeliner gives you so much control that it almost like drawing on paper... :)


The liner lasted for around 7-8 hours on my oily lids, which is commendable, after which it began fading and smudging.


However, there was trouble in paradise. Just when i was thinking i had found the perfect product, i encountered a massive problem. Only few days after using it, say about 3-5 times, the tip of the pen started drying and began producing blurred lines (no, Robin Thicke has nothing to do with it..lol). By the time i was onto 7-8 application, the tip went completely dry. Bad very bad!! 
Then somehow i found out that i need to keep the liner upside down (as in the tip has to be down) so that the pigment keeps flowing to the tip and saturates it. After i discovered the trick, it has been a breeze till now. I still think its impractical though.

Final Verdict

I love everything about the Eyeko Eyliner, the pigmentation, the lasting power, the finishing ...but the drying tip was a major bummer..... and a potential deal breaker.

Will i repurchase? 

I really don't know. I will see how long this one lasts. Maybe il buy it to just for the ease of drawing cat-flicks.
Here is a picture of me with the eyeliner.


Have  any of you used the Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner? What are your thoughts on the product? COMMENT!!

XOXO

    1. i know.... everything else was perfect but then it wouldn't matter if the product itself wouldn't get dispensed in the first place. I actually liked the ease of the pen liners... definitely easier than using brushes. Thanks for the cue.... will defo try and get the "Za" one..... ;)
