[[ Eyeko Black Graffiti Eyeliner, 'Lip Lover' Liptastik and 'Frosting' Fat Balm ]]
Packaging wise, these look mega cheap but guess what? They're practical. We all know how much I love practical packaging, right?! Personally, I don't mind having some naff looking things in my stash, since I'm the only one who ever sees them anyway! After all, Eyeko is also aimed at 'tweenage' girls...so try remembering that whilst ignoring those Clip Art style butterflies...
[[ Eyeko 'Frosting' Fat Balm - £6.50 ]]
Fat Balms are essentially chunky, lightly tinted lip balms which you can also use on your cheeks to add a flush of colour. All in all, a good idea in writing, but in reality I'm not exactly sold. Too chunky for lips (these are HUGE), not at all moisturising and far too waxy for cheeks. Overall, this fat balm felt like it should be in a toddler's play make-up set - definitely one to skip!

This stuff is love in felt tip format! Deep, dark black which doesn't fade or smudge - peeerfect. It's so easy to apply and you don't need to keep going back over it to build the colour since the pigmentation is so intense. The first time I wore this, my eyes kept watering due to heat/ pollen and all I could think was, 'Oh no, I must look like a panda by now!' but, to my great surprise, it was still perfect when I checked it. Now that is what you call an amazing eyeliner!

The Liptastik (£6.50) comes in a wind up tube, perfect for lazy folk like me who can't be bothered digging out their pencil sharpeners! It applies smoothly, leaving an even, bright, bold colour behind - plus, it's comfortable to wear and lasts ages. For me, nothing beats a good 'proper' lipstick, but these chunky lipstick pencils would be ideal for carrying around on nights out.
All in all, I think Eyeko are a bit hit and miss. When they get something right (eyeliners, nail polishes) they get them really right...but when they get them wrong...well...they get them really wrong! Still, I'm curious to try out the blushes and bronzers to see which category they fall into...
Do you own any of these products? Favourites? Do you think Eyeko's packaging needs a revamp?
