It is a widely known warning, never ask a woman with winged eyeliner why she is late. Timed winged eyeliner application could be an Olympic sport. I would certainly not qualify. However, it is a tried and true method of beautification that is here to stay simply because it’s so versatile. Cat eyes can be exotic, sexy, cute, edgy, classic, or graceful and the list goes on. Which is why when shopping for the perfect product for the job we are exceptionally selective, and rightfully so, the skin around the eyes is exceptionally fragile. We want something darker than a cat’s soul, so easy to control a child could use it, and so tough it wouldn’t budge in a hurricane, but at the same time we want it to be gentle enough to wash off without a fight when its time, solid enough that it doesn’t dye our skin, and thin enough that it doesn’t glom onto our eyelashes and make us look like the creature from the black lagoon. Eyeko, a London based cosmetics company with a really cool website, has captured my heart. Their line of felt tip liquid liner pens are made with water, conditioning algae extract, and black magic. Literally they stock a product called black magic, it includes a special blend of ingredients to help st
imulate lash growth while the user is wearing the product. They’ve been featured in numerous acclaimed fashion magazines for their quality formulas. I was able to maintain a smudge free look for 12 hours with minimal flaking. Toward the end of the day I did start to see a little over all fading, but at the end of my test run, it all came right off with a little face wash and water. I had done a little research before purchasing anything from Eyeko, consequently I had high expectations and they delivered. Doing cat eyes is usually like pulling teeth, but thanks to them it’s been dialed back to pulling eyebrow hairs.
