Eyeko 'Black Magic' Mascara

The newest product to be released from Eyeko is their Black Magic Mascara. This mascara is said to be designed for 'after hours seduction' combing drama, volume and curl in to one product. Their new formula containing conditioning Keratin and Shea Butter coats your lashes with an intense carbon black finish whilst conditioning them for long-term lash care. I found that this made the mascara super easy to build up or re-apply. If you wanted to add a little more drama after work, it's easy to add more without making your lashes look like clumpy spiders legs!

 The newly shaped curved brush is said to curl lashes right up for a 90 degree lift! This seems to make your eyelashes look twice as long as they virtually stand upright. Usually I'm not such a huge fan of mascara's with curved brushes, however, this one is firm enough to coat my lashes from root to tip. Black Magic is also smudge-proof, water resistant and paraben free. The mascara also comes with 'The Eyeko Shield', a new beauty tool designed to maximise length and minimize smudges. Simply place this behind the lashes and sweep the brush upwards from root to tip.

 As you can see from the photo above, Black Magic delivers amazing results! It practically doubled the length of my lashes without making them appear clumpy. The photo was taken after applying two coats of mascara to un-curled lashes and as you can see, the eye on the right with the product on looks much more open and awake. I think this is such a versatile mascara and I can see it becoming a firm favourite of mine! I love how you can apply a small amount for day time to deliver a polished but long look, or pump it up for evenings by layering more product on top and creating lots of volume.
