Eyeko Skinny Liner

Recommended Posts

I think I am the only one who did not like the Eyeko Skinny Liner. My sister gave me hers from her BirchBox because it was olive and she wasn't interested in the color. I loved the color and was happy to receive it from her. I tried applying the liner and found it difficult to work with but after several tries I was able to line my upper and lower lids. However, by the end of the day most of the eyeliner had disappeared. I used it 3-4 more times and then noticed hardly any product coming out of the end of it. I tried cutting the tip off and was able to get more product but now it is so scratchy it hurts to apply it and I'm throwing it away. 

 

I'm curious what others liked about the product. I had trouble with it staying throughout the day, the application, and the short lifespan of the liner. I did love the color, though.

Mine stays throughout the day, but I too am having trouble getting the liner to come out of the tip. It's as if the felt tip is clogged. Now that you brought this to my attention, I may try running the tip under warm water?

Also, there is a plastic insert in the lid that allows the pencil to 'click' into place, well my plastic insert has come loose, so every time I remove the cap, the plastic insert is stuck to the top of the liner. I have tried putting it back, but it comes back out every time. I may have to glue it because I'm sick of black finger tips haha.

I haven't had any trouble with the purple Eyeko eye liner that I got in a previous Birchbox. Maybe I haven't run into any of the mechanical issues that have been talked about in this thread because I don't use it often. I would use it more if it was a different color (black would have been perfect).

 

When I did use it though, it was very easy to apply (this was my first liquid eye liner!), didn't smudge, and stayed on until I wanted to take it off. I also didn't experience any flaking. It was very pigmented as well so I didn't have to go over an area repeatedly to get a nice solid line (this is what I have to do with the Be a Bombshell liquid eye liner that came in last month's Ipsy bag).

Yes, the liner stayed on the top lid but faded fast on my bottom lid.

I'm loving the Be a Bombshell liner from last month's ipsy way more, but I do like the Eyeko. It's definitely one of the better liquid liners I've used, and if I hadn't gotten the BaB liner, I definitely would've felt like the Eyeko spoils me.

 

Mostly the Eyeko has the advantage of having more colours, though I'm wondering how much of a difference that makes. The purple looks near black on me anyway, so it's like.... what is the point ): Does anyone have multiples of the Eyekos in different colours, and do you think it's worth it to own multiples?

 

I don't have any problems with the staying -- I don't use primer either, and I put it on at ~9:30 this morning. It's about 9pm right now and I'd say it's about 80-90% in tact still. I don't usually line my bottom eyelids since I'm terrified of panda eyes lol (no it's a legit problem /o sob)

The Olive one looks black on me. When I first got it, I honestly thought that it had been packaged wrong and that they had put a black insert into an Olive pen, so I'd say that unless you have super fair skin, all of the colours will look nearly the same.

 

I used to get panda eyes but now I sweep some brown eyeshadow right under my eyeliner (I use black retractable eyeliner pencils from brands like essence/jordana because they're cheap and actually black) and it keeps it in place all day without smudging. Without it, it'd be halfway down my face within 4 hours.

I can tell a noticeable difference between black and olive. I have pretty fair skin though. The olive is definitely a dark olive.

I forgot about my Bombshell liner - I love that one - stays put and I find it easy to use. Perhaps my Eyeko was already starting to dry up when I got it. I'm fair skinned and the olive Eyeko did not look black on me.

Love both. The bombshell liner stays on longer but it makes my eyes itch a little too. The Eyeko doesn't.

I prefer the bombshell one instead of the eyeko. I too have problem using it, and had to try several times before it finally glided on nicely. The bombshell liner's way easier to apply.

I have turquoise and navy(new and haven't swatched/tried yet), olive and purple. I can definitely see a difference in coloring when applied. I also haven't had any technical issues or performance problems. I can apply and wear the liners for 12+ hours without smudging or fading. These are my fave liners at the moment.

I was able to pull the tip out and turn it around like the Marbella liner I received from Ipsy a few months ago. I lined my eyes this morning but the color became very faint - mine is just out of product. I used it approximately 10 - 12 times.

It used to smear on me near the end of the day but I started priming my eyes and the eye liner stays on until I wipe it off. My liner hasn't dried out yet but I shake it before I used it, not sure if that really does anything.

    • Amazing video from Second Year No Buyer Elle S today on YouTube: "$1000 Worth of Eyeshadow ... What Could I have Bought Instead?" Elle shows only seven palettes that cost a total of $1000 (CAD). Elle is not in the dream of denial shopping. She is serious about money, facing reality, real life (though she is still enjoying the creativity of makeup). "I can't afford it," she says. I can relate to her point about being someone who buys a lot of cosmetics, but never goes for a mani or pedi, or anything like that. She asks: How many things have I missed because of my purchases? Now that's something to think about! I often think of how my life would have been different if I'd been able to start on this No Buy path at a young age. There was no Internet then, so I did not have this kind of inspiration. I only had magazines and TV ads telling me to buy, buy, buy!  But, why do all the No Buy people say they want to replace shopping with experiences? Shopping is an experience too! It a great experience and that's why we like it. I'm only giving it up to get rid of debt, because I know money makes me happy.  I grew up in 1970s suburban America. I grew up in a shopping mall and in K Mart. I was always at those places with my friends, searching for identity. So of course shopping is high on my list of experiences.  THE SHOPPING EXPERIENCE-1970s-1980s The Barbie Dolls and Barbie clothes at K Mart Getting a mood ring at K Mart and feeling so cool  The excited butterflies in the tummy, when pulling into the shopping mall parking lot The bright lights and the smell of the Cinnabon store The Waldenbooks, where you bought Laura Ingalls Wilder books, where you discovered Sylvia Plath The record store, where you thumbed through record albums, and you discovered Blondie and Jacqueline du Pre The Clinique counter, where the lady did your makeup and made you feel glamorous and grown up, and assured you Brooke Shields was nothing without her makeup  The food! Arthur Treachers Fish and Chips, Morrisons Cafeteria with the fried chicken and buttery rolls and iced tea All the latest issues of Teen and Seventeen magazine The Super X drugstore with Sophia perfume, Vidal Sassoon shampoo, and Maybelline Kissing Potion The movie theater where you saw The Turning Point seven times and fell in love with ballet (1977 the most magical year) Orange Julius Trying European cheese samples at the Swiss Colony The ORLANE counter - the epitome of elegance to me  The Stendahl counter - This was a really beautiful and expensive French cosmetics brand. The lady at the counter was French. I practiced my French with her and she sent me a little note in French later on. She was kind. I had cystic acne. It was bad. "Oh, I see you have a little but of acne. Not to worry, it just needs a bit of astringent and fond de teint." She was tactful and gave me nice samples.  My first Estee Lauder GWP - I thought I was Princess Di - it had Cinnibar perfume My first LANCOME GWP - I thought I was Princess Caroline. I was given Sun Touched Terra lipstick  Princess Marcella Borghese Germaine Monteil - Royal Secret Alexandra de Markoff - I never did get to try that legendary foundation - department store cosmetics were rare and glorious treats Adrien Arpel in her pre HSN days  The Erno Laszlo counter. It was so mysterious. You could not buy from them unless you went through a kind of initiation. You had to get an analysis and buy a special kit. It was fascinating. Now they just have samples going in beauty sub boxes any old way - Dr. L would not be very happy. He wanted his beauty routines done right and they were quite unorthodox. See the book, The Natural Way to Super Beauty by Mary Ann Crenshaw to know more about this.  And I could go on and on. Of course I had no credit cards then, no job, just a little allowance. So I was not really ever spending much, just having fun. It's when you're older and have credit and money that it becomes a problem. Now there's no money, no time to shop, K Mart and the malls are ghost towns. And don't get me started on how much more fun TV was back then. Even going to the library was so much fun. Now all is so dull, dull, dull! I just get up, go to my job, come home, eat dinner, go to bed, and hope that my No Buy will make me rich and happy one day.           
    • i love natural products, but before buying products , i encourage u to know what type ur skin and read about it well , then everything will be clear for u and easy
    • i need info regarding Lash Extensions from real experience ?! 
    • I am religiously using Vitamin C, E, Ferulic Acid serum by Radium Skin. They ship overseas. And its not expensive too, considering how much other mainstream labels are charging.
