I have a confession; when I tried the popular Eyeko Skinny Liner I wasn’t convinced with its patchy application and tendency for the nib to dry up, therefore when I came to review Eyeko’s Fat Liquid Eyeliner I was dubious to say the least. Fortunately unlike its slimmer sister this eyeliner packs in plenty of oomph and has really impressed with its ease of application.
The Eyeko Fat Liquid Eyeliner (RRP £12) is an easy-to-apply, bold felt-tip eyeliner that promises to provide solid-black, smudge-proof lines. It also contains Algae extract to condition the lashes and delicate eye area. The pen itself is nice and chunky, sitting comfortably in the hand and the nib size allows you to create different types of lines with minimal fuss. The formula is smooth and has the perfect consistency, neither being too wet that it is messy to apply nor too dry that it drags the eyelid.
I find some liquid eyeliners tricky to work with but being a felt tip the Eyeko eyeliner is really easy and quick to apply. I achieved my desired look at the first attempt which is great as who wants to be messing about for half an hour when you need to be out of the door?
I was really pleased with the finished result which was sharp and very dark, however the claims of the eyeliner being smudge-proof are a little bold as I found that without any primer there was some smudging after a few hours and I certainly don’t think this is one to wear to the gym! Used along with my trusty Urban Decay Primer Potion though and the staying power much improved, so I’d definitely recommend the use of a primer if your eyelids are oily like mine.
I’m really glad to see Eyeko have redeemed themselves with their Fat Liquid Liner and whilst I wish the formula little more staying power the ease of use has really won me over and for day-to-day wear this is a great little eyeliner.
If you purchase the Eyeko Fat Liquid Eyeliner for £12 at the Libbie Club you get the travel sized Eyeko Black Magic Mascara worth £8 absolutely free – they make a great duo!
