Is it the cat’s pajamas? Alexa Chung for Eyeko review

Alexa Chung has joined forces with Eyeko to create an eyeliner/mascara set, Alexa for Eyeko ($45), that brings an easily doable cat eye and massive lashes to everyone.

So who is Alexa Chung? She is a British global style icon, a contributing editor to British Vogue, and a Style Ambassador for the British Fashion Council. Alexa is an artist and a photographer and, believe me, she knows her eye makeup.

The packaging is beyond cute. I adore the retro-cool vibe. It perfectly matches the throwback ’60’s look for which the eyeliner and mascara are perfect.

Alexa says, “Liquid liner is my savior. Other people like other things to feel like they look normal, but for me, I’m pretty much naked without my eyeliner on. It’s my comfort blanket.” WWD

The eye do liquid liner is deep, dark, extremely black felt tip pen. I find the nib is a little bit smaller than other similar eyeliners, which makes for excellent control and easy thin or thick lines.  And if you miss a spot, it’s simple to go back over it to fill in perfectly. This liquid liner is perfect for beginners and those who are veteran liquid eyeliners will think they have died and gone to liquid lining heaven. You can even use this on the waterline and the color really stays.

I am already a HUGE fan of Eyeko Skinny Brush Mascara, so I was really excited to try the eye do mascara. The eye do mascara is, like the eye do liquid liner, black black blackest black. I adore the brush. This baby grabs every single lash and makes it thicker, fanning lashes out into a gorgeous fringe. It’s not super easy to wash off because the formula is quite tenacious. The upside is this mascara doesn’t smudge or smear at all. Ingredients include Ginkgo Biloba, Shea Butter, Vitamins, antioxidants and botanical proteins to condition and promote lash growth.
