Review: Eyeko Liquid Eyeliner

The first thing I would like to say is thank you to my new followers! It means such a lot to me that people are interested in what I write about and if there is anything you would like me to blog about in the future please request it in the comments below.

If I'm honest, I don't often buy magazines but I do if the front cover looks interesting or I like the look of the free gift. I find glamour often do great sample sized products, especially as they sometimes offer Benefit goodies, but August's edition of Marie Claire had the Eyeko London Skinny Mini Liquid Eyeliner.

I have tried to use liquid eyeliners in the past and have never been able to apply them properly so I was hoping to have more luck with this one. Also I had an 18th party with a rock n roll theme and I was dressing up as Amy Winehouse so thought I better get this!

Even the packaging of this product is appealing. I like the blue box (even though it was a little bashed up at the bottom when I bought the magazine) and the product itself had a simple design.

The tip of the eyeliner is stiff enough to be able to line your eyes accurately but also soft enough that you don't hurt your lids in the process (which I have found with other liners). I found that I could create thin lines for simple look and thicker, fuller lines for more dramatic looks with this tip.

When this product has run out (even though it is a sample size I feel it still has a lot of use out of it) I will probably repurchase this.

If there are any other liquid liners that you think I should try please comment below or tag me on instagram @throughkatherineseyes

Exam Results and University!!!

Firstly I would like to apologise for not posting in a while, my laptop is in repair :( I am currently using a loan laptop.

The last month has been both exciting and stressful. As some of you may already know, August 15th was A-level results day, also the day I found out whether I will be going to university or not and... I am!! I got my insurance choice but I am actually very happy about it :D A lot has happened in the last few months and I feel I would be better suited to the place I am going than the place I originally wanted to go to (I am not saying which university it is at the moment, just because I want to see how I settle in before I say anything). I am very excited but I did find out yesterday that I didn't get any of the accommodation that I applied for but it seems a lot of people are in the same situation as I am and now that I have calmed down I am actually looking forward to living in catered accommodation.

I would also like to say that I now have an instagram account @throughkatherineseyes

I will try my hardest to update my blog and instagram as much as I can before I move to university as I'm pretty sure the first few weeks will be extremely hectic when I arrive!!
