Review - Eyeko Graffiti Eyeliner Pen in Black

I love felt tip liners and I always have a couple in the makeup box on the go,  my newest addition is this  Eyeko graffiti pen in black.

Easy Peasy Liner Look, pale pink eyeshadow with black liner

I find them so much easier than gel eyeliners (special dispensation to Bobbi Brown's gel liners) to apply a perfect  flick and I think they are much easier for beginners and if you are on a budget they are cheaper as you don't need to purchase a brush.

I was sent the pen in black, as to be honest I tend to stick to liner in black or brown and if I fancy a different color I just use eyeshadow with mixing medium or fix plus as that way you can ensure you get the perfect colour.

The packaging is like a silver felt tip pen and I was certainly impressed with the applicator tip and how the product applied.  It is actually very smooth and easy to apply and the black is not watery like some brands.  It dries quickly and once this baby is dry it doesn't budge, I had to use a good eyemakeup remover to get it off my hand when I tested it there let alone my eye! I read in one of those tried and tested bits in a weekly magazine that this was scratchy and I completely disagree, all I can think of is that their sample had dried out... the one I have is certainly not scratchy!

It costs £5 which is a good price, and Eyeko have free shipping


I do like the graffiti liner, the only downside I can think of is you don't know how much product is left, as with a Lancome artliner or the L'oreal dupe you can shake the tube and feel how much product is left, which you can't do with this so I don't really know how long it would last.

Eyeko's products that are currently on their website are much better, in my opinion, to those that were sold in 2009 when I started blogging.  But what do you think about the new Eyeko products?
