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
