Product Review: Eyeko Mascaras
MIRACLE PRODUCT: Eyeko Mascaras—Skinny Brush, Fat Brush & Curvy Brush
THEY SAY: One word: Adele. The singer got her memorable, luscious lashes for her "Someone Like Video" using only the Skinny Brush—no falsies! Designed for absolute precision, the skinny wand grips each lash to coat and separate, maximizing length and locking in gravity-defying hold. The Fat Brush creates a full lash fringe. The Curvy Brush plumps, defines and curls for doll-like lashes. All mascaras can be cocktailed to achieve your desired effect.
WE SAY: Keep reading for reviews from the editors.
Pros: The skinny and fat version definitely seemed to do their job. The Skinny mascara spread apart my lashes and made them long and wispy, while the Fat mascara made my individual lashes a lot thicker. I've been using the Skinny for during the day and the Fat one at night since it has a more dramatic look. I also love how they come in a squeezable tube so I never have to face the common problem of wasting mascara when my brush can't reach the edges of the cylinder. The guitar pick-like shield also made sure I didn't spread any mascara goo on my lid. They thought of everything!
Cons: The Curvy version seemed to have similar effects to the Fat one. In fact, it was hard for me to differentiate between the two. Regardless, I'm going to keep on using all of them!
Pros: One of my biggest pet peeves is having to scrape the bottoms of mascara bottles and not being able to tell how much is left, so I love that you can squeeze every last drop out of Eyeko's mascaras! I'm in love with the Fat Brush. As promised, my lashes did look big and bold. It's the perfect shade of black, and the brush is a traditional fan type that grabs every lash and really makes my lashes look bold, but not overdone for the day. I wore it alone for the day, then layered on Skinny at night, which lengthened and defined my lashes more than layers of other mascaras have.
Cons: The mascaras have a gel-like consistency, which is great for defining, but not so great for drying time. I had trouble using the Skinny and Curvy brushes on their own because they didn't define each last lash as well as the Fat brush did, and they got clumpy when used on their own. Those were better to layer on top of the Fat base.
Pros: I never ever thought of layering mascaras! It's genius, really. My right eye has longer and fuller lashes than my left eye, so the Skinny wand was perfect. After curling my right eye, the Skinny Brush defined the lashes in the most weightless way possible. I layered the Fat and Curvy mascara on my left set of lashes, which aren't as noticeable. It worked! They really popped after using the duo. Also, I loved the idea of using the pick as a barrier between the lashes and the eyelid. I was able to coat the top of my lashes without having to worry about smudging them on my shadow.
Cons: I didn't notice dramatic curling without the help of a lash curler.
Bottom Line: Don't miss out! Get your hands on Eyeko's line of mascaras to get Adele-like lashes!
