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.

    • No Buy Program Guide   I found a great new No Buy channel on YouTube (well it found me; it was in my recommended videos), a new No Buy channel from a New York concert pianist, Natalia Lavrova. I find this fascinating, because I love the world of classical music. Here is someone in my dream life, who loves shopping, and beauty subscriptions, who has credit card debt, and is doing a No Buy! I'll be fascinated to watch this channel and hear how this artist's No Buy goes as she is preparing for concert tours abroad! Ms. Lavrova has a really good Shop My Stash video with great tips on winter makeup colors, like icy pink highlighter. I looked for her piano performances on YouTube and they are stunning. This is going to be a big inspiration for me!   
    • I made it through the night with no buying! I slept through the shopping craving like it was an illness. I woke up after the 12 hours of sleep and as I was waking up I thought of a happy time in the 90's. I was young; all my family members were alive. I was at a Bond film, Tomorrow Never Dies, (I love James Bond and don't know what I am going to do when his new film is released, since I'm not allowed money for entertainment on my No Buy). On the floor near my feet was a big bag of Estee Lauder products that I had just gotten with my birthday and Christmas money. I had a full size moisturizer and a huge PWP, beautiful. The film had a great ending. The Bond girl was underwater, running out of air, and just in time, there's James Bond, the theme music resumes! Great scene! And walking around the mall after, how happy I felt! And today I am sad that time is gone, many family members are gone, life is sadder, time is running out, and I did not use that bag of Estee Lauder products up! I probably used them a few times and then threw them out and bought something else. And maybe if I had used every drop, in my mind, I could have held on to life, to time, to happiness. At any rate I would have had more money. If only we knew about No Buys and Project Pans then! This is just one of a million examples of how I think about this.  When I woke up Elle S was still analyzing her samples! She was talking about how her project taught her to evaluate (excellent video, Oct 1, 2017).  Last night in bed I took some photos of samples I need to use up. Sorry for so many long posts, but I've really had to work on this for the last 24 hours. Primers, shower gels and body scrub, toners, and masques.   
    • I haven't given in and bought anything yet, though I wanted to. I went to bed early (I think it was 5 pm), and I was listening to Elle S 365 Days of Samples playlist on YouTube. It is inspiring. Elle is detailed, persevering, and creative. I was very cozy, and I dreamed I was going to a spa in Europe. I was so excited about the spa, and about the skin care products the spa was going to have in the room for us. My mother was going with me, and I told her I was going to bring a minimal amount of beauty products in my suitcase, because we would be getting some from the spa. When I woke up I was sad, because the dream was so nice. Now I just woke up and I'm hot and thirsty, but the craving to shop has gone down somewhat. Before I went to sleep I looked in my sample boxes. I saw a beautiful mini lotion with a gold bow on the package that I got for Christmas and had already forgotten about. The glittery gold bow sparkled beautifully in the light.  This while experience today of realizing I have been on No Buy so long without realizing it has been interesting. I have been keeping busy with other things. I began going to a a new religious congregation a month after I went back on No Buy (a different religion I wanted to learn about for a long, long time) and have been busy with that, and have been making new friends and socializing more. The new religion is one that fills my need for intellectual and artistic (through its liturgy) stimulation. I've met wonderful people. It's not always easy to keep going there, as I'm shy and reclusive, but I've kept it up. Maybe this is what made the time go so fast without me knowing it.  I guess I'll go and listen to some more 365 Days of Samples.   
    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.
