Eyeko London is one of those brands that I tend to think of in terms of one product. I know that sounds silly, but for the longest time they were my go to for eyeliner. I love their Skinny eyeliner and their fat eyeliner and of course their regular eyeliner.
They make fantastic eyeliner. And so as soon as i hear the name Eyeko, my brain thinks eyeliner. However, they also make other things. One of those things is mascara. I’ve been using the Eyeko Black Magic Mascara recently and I have to say it has been very impressive. And not just because of the length.
According to the site…
Designed for after-hours volume, this mascara combines drama and curl with our darkest black finish to intensify your lashes. The curvaceous brush mimics the lash line shape for 90-degree curl, and the keratin and shea butter-enhanced formula keeps lashes feeling conditioned, supple and defined.Eyeko London
On the lashes it gives the length and curl that i want. I also had no trouble with any sort of flaking away and the lashes feel soft instead of stiff and heavy. It is rare that i can look at a products list of claims and go down the list and just check them off as Yes, it does exactly that. But with the Black Magic Mascara I could. And to that list I can add that if you apply it and give it a second to dry, there is also no problem with smudging.
I really like the curve of the wand as it follows the natural bend of the lashes and coats every single lash for a fuller look.
The only place this mascara falls down is on the lower lashes. The curve that makes it so fantastic on the upper lashes makes it kind of awkward on the lower lashes. Finding the right way to turn the wand was difficult and in the end I just didn’t put mascara on the lower lashes while i used it.
And I am okay with that.
In the end, fabulous mascara for the top lashes but skip it for the lower lashes. I enjoyed using this mascara and I am sure I will be picking it up again. I will also remember that Eyeko isn’t just for eyeliner any more.
