Mascara is one of those makeup products I cannot live without. Even on the days I don’t have a full face of makeup on, I’ve always got a coat of mascara on my lashes. Even though they are long and naturally curled, they are so fair and barely noticeable. So I like to give them that boost without the use of falsies. I’m always on the lookout for a decent mascara that can do everything I need it to do. So today I’ll be talking all about the Eyeko Mascara – Sport Waterproof, a mascara that promises to give length and curl whilst surviving water.
Eyeko Mascara – Sport Waterproof
Eyeko is a brand I’d never tried before, I’ve always stuck to my firm favourites when it comes to mascara. But when I did my Beauty Bay Haul, I got a large bag full of free gifts and this mascara was one of them. I was pretty intrigued by it as it has a similar formula to the Wonderland Mascara I tried a fair few months ago.
The Eyeko Mascara comes in a lovely squeezy tube (don’t go squeezing it though!) and a screw top lid. Different to the other mascaras I own but pretty handy in a way. The wand on the mascara is curved to hug the shape of the eye to help apply the mascara evenly. A curved wand also helps to curl your lashes or add a bit of shape to them. As you can see from the photo, this mascara has little black fibres through the products which were the reason why I was intrigued. I’ve heard so many horror stories regarding fibres. But they can be little fibres of magic to help give your lashes that extra length. Length to my lashes is something I LOVE!
It applies nicely to the lashes, giving them length and shape. The fibres do not flake off or end up on your eyeball, probably a question on everyone’s mind. It certainly was when I first looked at it. Because the fibres are mixed in with the mascara itself there’s no chance they can flake off. The horror stories I’ve seen are with mascaras where the fibres have to be applied first.
It definitely survives water, it pretty much survives anything, to be honest! When it came to taking off my makeup for the day, I took out my usual facial wipes and started rubbing it off. It just wouldn’t budge. So next I tried my trusty micellar water and even then it was a struggle. After finishing my skin care routine there was still product on my lashes and the next morning it was still there. So for next time, when it comes to a mascara like this, I’ll know to buy the proper product to help remove a mascara like this. Eyeko actually sells a product which helps to remove it but its a bit pricey. Probably something to remember if you do fancy giving this a try yourself.
All in all, I absolutely love this Eyeko Mascara. It does everything I need it to do, but I dread taking it off at the end of the day. Until I get myself a decent mascara remover then I save this for special occasions where I need my lashes to survive everything. I haven’t tried this during a swimming session though, I’ll be thoroughly impressed if it could survive an hour under the water!
Have you tried anything from Eyeko before? Got any recommendations?
