What an appropriate name for this lipstick in a pen by Eyeko. A while ago, I’d never have had the guts to wear this colour, but enboldened by the Dior Devilish Pink episode, I’m a little more comfortable wearing bright fuchsia on the lips 🙂
I picked this one up a while ago (which explains the wear on the colour) in a set. I believe there might be another one in red lying around somewhere. I really have to go and look it up! The lipstick comes in a chubby pencil form like a crayon. It reminds me a lot of the Clinique Chubby Pencils, except that these are strongly pigmented where Clinique’s is a sheer lipbalm.
Like Clinique’s, the Eyeko Liptastik Glossy Lip Pen twists up so no sharpening is needed, and it is a very handy little tool to slip into your bag. The clear cap and grey body does make it look a bit cheap though.
I do think the name “Glossy Lip Pen” is only half right. Its a lip pen, but I don’t find it particularly glossy. The gloss factor is low, although it applies like butter. Well, like softened butter at any rate (ever tried applying butter straight from the fridge? Near impossible!)
Here’s the colour swatched just once. Not kidding when I say that its seriously seriously pigmented! And its really really fuchsia! 😯 There very little warmth in this one. Its a straight cool fuchsia lipstick that I just know you’re wondering how it looks on the lips.
Also featuring: Shiseido Perfect Refining liquid foundation and Burberry Misty blush
It looks like this. Bright? Check. Fuchsia? Check. Had to keep the rest of the look simple. It was ALL about the lips!
But isn’t it quite lovely anyway? 😀 The pen shape does make it quite easy to achieve a good line around the lips and the formula despite its name isn’t glossy. (Note: It doesn’t feather. I didn’t draw it in properly but corrected it after this shot) It isn’t matte either. It isn’t terribly drying (my lips were a little dry to start with) but it is a bit drying as the day wears on so I’d recommend putting a thin layer of lipbalm to prep the lips. The colour is very long lasting though. Usually bright shades are.
Pros: Good pigmented colour with just 1 swipe, Easy to use and portable, Affordable
Cons: Only available online, Limited colours availabile, This colour can make teeth look yellow
Haah! Did you see that last con there? This colour, despite how absolutely gorgeous it looks on my lips, can make teeth look yellow 🙁 I get around this by not showing my teeth very much 😛 There are also only 3 shades available – fuchsia, red and rosy pink and its only available online.
I picked mine up from the Eyeko website. There is a local website that stocks some Eyeko products but I’m not sure how active they are or if they have this one in stock. I usually buy my Eyeko direct from Eyeko.
What do you reckon? Fuchsia lips your sort of thing or you’d run away screaming at the thought? 😉
The Eyeko Liptastik Glossy Lip Pen comes in 3 shades and retails at £10 each at www.eyeko.com

very bold fuchsia…very bold! not something that will look nice on me 😛
Haha With confidence, anything will look nice lah… 😉
I would never be able to pull that off! You are very, very brave! =)
Hehe… I guess I am – when I ran the previous 30 day lipstick challenge, everyone commented all the colours looked the same. This time I don’t think that’ll be a lament! 😉
EEE! I want fuschia! It’s my other “to-do” list after red lips.
Perhaps I’ll need more hinting and poking from the “Master?” *Hint hint*?
I think Revlon Colorburst has a fuchsia lipstick. Not 100% sure though. I rarely do fuchsia. Its so hard to find the right one that make my teeth look like I’m a chain smoker on 2 packs a day 😛
jojoba (My Makeup Reviews) says
that’s a drastic colour. not a colour i can use, unfortunately. light skin colour like yours always do better with cool and brights.
Haha… actually, it might be surprising that it doesn’t look as drastic in real life. I trot it out to work now and again 😛
i love fuchsia! Before, I stay away from very bright lip color because I think it doesn’t look good on me with my medium tone skin…..! but when I tried it, I loved it! And you just got to have to confidence to wear it and get used to it! This is a very nice color!
Thank you and you are absolutely right! With confidence, we’ll pull off any colour we want 😀
My GOODNESS! I love love love this–and it looks sooooo good on you madam!
*Runs to website to check it out*
Thank you sweetie! I think it’d be a right stand out on you too! 😀 so sorry its out of stock on the local site but its up on the Eyeko site though 🙂
Bah, out of stock!
