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?


  1. I love Eyeko. I only came to them recently so don't have any comparison data
    I have all the new polishes and they are very on-trend and excellent value. And made in the UK!!!!!!
    I'm a big fan of Eyeko.

  2. This rapidly became my favourite felt tip liner when I tried it but it dried out really fast :( make sure you CLICK the lid on properly each time you use it, I think that's why mine died so quickly! xo

  3. I haven't tried eyeko products before but I do like felt liners more than the usually ones. It's much more easier to control.

  4. I LOVE felt tip liners, I think I'm going to order one of these, your eye look is so pretty! xxx

  5. I'm currently patiently waiting for my first Eyeko haul to arrive in the post (can't complain about the time because of the free delivery!) - I'm keeping an open mind as have heard mixed reviews about the products. I'm rubbish with liquid eyeliner so these look like an interesting alternative, although I can't really use the MAC felt tip pen liner either...more practice needed!

  6. I've wanted this eyeliner pen for a while as it looks as though you can be very precise with it, but I'm so upset Superdrug withdrew the Eyeko line as I'm not too keen to order online!

  7. I really like these as well. Eyeliner is the one staple product in my kit that I get the most use out of. I've tried similar felt liners and was disappointed with the coverage and colour but these babies are great! :)

  8. I love this, I have the purple one, it's definitely easier to use than liquid or gel liners xx


  9. Ooh finally a highstreet branded felt tip pen that actually works

  10. looks like a great liner! I agree though that I like to be able to tell {roughly} how much product is left!

  11. I have yet to try Eyeko products! I love jet black eye liners that don't budge, I will have to give it a try!

  12. ahhh I'm thinking of getting an eyeliner pen, which would you recommend?
