Eyeko Graffiti Eyeliner Pen Review

Totally a dumb moment this morning but I started humming Iko Iko as I edited my review for the Eyeko Graffiti Eyeliner Pen. Am I totally old or does everyone remember that little retro ditty?

I dunno my mind wanders somedays….Eyeko, Iko…all the same thing right?


You know, I’m a complete klutz-o when it comes to lining my eyes with pens or liquids and such. Give me a big old pot of gel liner or a soft pencil and I’m golden but hey, I was up for taking a look at Eyeko Graffiti Eyeliner Pen anyway!

It’s a felt marker type eyeliner with a precision brush for easy lining. It’s actually pretty easy to use if you have a steady hand, hello I so do not, you can draw on a thick or thinner line. Funny thing is Eyeko gives this really cool tip for application that I seriously have to try.

Check it.

Eyeko says dot across the upper lid as close to the lashes as possible than simply join the dots….hmmmm wonder if I can embrace this fool proof way to line my eyes, I’m gonna try and get back to ya on that one!

I used it on one eye a few days ago as I sat and gamed, ha dontcha just love that mental image. I just wanted to see how it wore for a bit. On the back of my hand it took DAYS to get off even after makeup remover, sheesh, I guess that’s long wearing for you eh? Lucky enough it removed easily on my eye with good oil based makeup remover. It wore well and didn’t seem to flake up or fade during the time I had it on.

Honestly, for $8 you prob shouldn’t past it up if you’re a big fan of liner formulas such as this plus the added benefit of cute as heck packaging!

Quite nice just wish I could learn the correct way to apply it!

Available now from Eyeko.

        Ha! My mom had the Big Easy soundtrack so I would listen to that song all the time. Then when Mission Impossible 2 came out I got the newer version. Its on my ipod, I should tried to find it!

    The eyeliner looks really interesting- I always liked brush-type liners, not felt-tips so much until recently, now I’m trying some new stuff. I really want the tokidoki pens from Sephora too. I’m not sure what brought on the change either.
    I feel I must comment on this song post though, lol- I know that song well being in New Orleans and all but I never heard nor saw that version but I likey! There’s some really great 80’s/ early 90’s neon-ness going on. Being in the city there isn’t as much of a Cajun influence ( like people peppering their speech with Cajun phrases) as is played up in movies and the like, I think it’s readily accepted but also seen as more of a “Country” or “Bayou” thing. Eating Cajun food though… now that’s a city-wide tradition.
