Eyeko Big Eyes Mascara

I hadn’t tried any Eyeko products when I go this mascara so I was excited to try a brand that was new to me. I had heard good things about this particular product and their glow cream.

Firstly, I gotta’ say I love the packaging. It is what appealed to me first about this mascara. A lipgloss like tube for a mascara? Weird but intriguing.

The wand is great.  It’s narrow and long. It coats every lash, even the tiny ones on the outer corner. Because it’s narrow it’s easy to wiggle behind the lashes, an essential step for those of us with blonde lashes. I have quite long lower lashes which can be a pain to coat with mascara. With this wand my bottom lashes looked fantastic.

Colour wise, it’s a strong black. It dries with a small amount of sheen, no matte lashes.  One coat gives you defined, natural, long lashes. Two coats on my lashes gave a false lash effect. One day last week I attempted a third coat, it did not go well. One coat is really enough for me for day time and two coats at night.


With two coats on top and bottom lashes it gave a wide eyed doll effect. I do need to point out that when the mascara dries on the lashes it impossible to add anymore layers. You need to apply layers before the first coats sets.

I really like this mascara.  It doesn’t clump or flake and makes my lashes look fuller and longer. For night time, the big manga eye effect is also a winner. It didn’t irritate my very sensitive eyes either. The only downside for me is removal. It is a nightmare to get off without using eye make-up remover.

It costs £8 on the Eyeko website. (they also have Eyeko in Superdrug). This is roughly the same as other ‘drugstore’ mascara’s.

I would repurchase this in the future.

Do you have any Eyeko recommendations?
