Or… When Fat Brushes Go Bad. The Eyeko Yoga Waterproof Mascara is a good example of how not to make putting mascara on easy. I get what they tried to do here because lashes naturally get a bit longer towards the outer section of the eye but the whole mechanic of trying to cater to short and long lashes in one brush just hasn’t worked here.
The good thing about it is that it’s a properly lash nourishing formula, including more than most when it comes to nurturing with ingredients including matcha tea, strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, Vitamin E, ceramides and collagen. I don’t know enough about lashes to know truly if fruit extracts have any benefits on their health but at least I can say that Vitamin E, ceramides and collagen will help with strength. I can see what is supposed to happen with the brush shape (apparently, it’s designed to evoke the beauty of a lotus flower – cough) but in practice it just doesn’t really work at all. I found the bigger end just swept over the lashes rather than grabbing and coating and the result was very far from smooth and even, although my lashes stayed soft rather than going ‘crispy’.
It’s years since I reviewed any Eyeko for a number of reasons and I’m a bit disappointed that my first review in such a long time isn’t great because I wanted it to be! It’s £19 HERE.
