Eyeko Skinny Mini Duo


Don't let that giant photo with no frame of reference up there fool you.  This duo may be skinny.  It may be mini.  But I defy you to find another set of well performing duos for $16.  Serious.  Except for maybe Han Solo and Chewbacca, but I doubt they would sell themselves for such a steal.  They be hustla's, yo.

Just in case you couldn't tell what was in the box.  I photographed the products.  Cuz I'm a good little blogger.
So this review is brought to you by the letter E (read: E is for Eyeko).  And it comes to you in two parts.  The first part being the conveniently sized travel Skinny Liner.  And the second in the also conveniently sized Skinny Brush Mascara.  It's all so damned... convenient of Eyeko to just bring these two together for us. It's like they knew naming two products virtually the same thing would destine them for a future as a great duo-dom.  And also as a great play on words.

Eyeko Skinny Mini Liquid Liner

The full size of this kicks ass.  I've waxed poetic about it on the Think Tank before.  I dig two things about it, which coincidentally make it a high performer in my book, its super BLACKand I can get great control of the product with the nib.  It's felt tipped and if stored upside down flows smoothly, evenly and makes it easy to get a bitchin' liner job down.

The Nib of Skinny Mini.
Size comparison.
Top is Skinny, Bottom is Skinny Mini.
As you can see by making Skinny mini they shrunk the size of the nib, making it great for more delicate and finely lined lids.  It's also great for touch ups and getting into hard to reach areas of your eyeballs, like the inner corners and between the lashes.  But there is a stroke difference between the two products, so this is not a 100% same just smaller product in terms of performance.

Skinny Brush Mascara

This mascara is lengthening, and it does it fabulously. In fact its the perfect finishing mascara (because I am one of those freakish people who need such a thing - don't working, I'm working on my mascara manifesto, you'll find out what the eff I'm talking about soon enough).  It's ultra black, its great for lengthening the tips and layers over other products beautifully.  The brush is nice because it isn't trying to separate each lash, it's just trying to get more product efficiently onto the lashes for the flutteriest (and falsest) lash look you can muster with just mascara.

The brush...... Yeah.
Love these two.  Seriously the best things I've purchased from Sephora in a while.  And I've been going through a string of just dud products lately.  So thank you Eyeko! For being mini-sized awesome!

    1. I really like it. I was really pleased with how dark it was, and how it layers over other mascaras.
