Eyeko - Mayfair and Primrose Hill

Eyeko celebrated 10yrs of pink power with a little shindig/gathering of bloggers and lovers of beauty.I had fun,even though I missed the cupcakes *Noooooo!

Anyhoo,these were one thing that caught my eye.

Their new London Lip glosses

They come in a few other shades,which are also named after popular places in London,but I had the following....

Mayfair:A deep browny nude
Primrose Hill:A soft pink laced with gold glitter

On first inspection,I had really high hopes for these,especially Mayfair,but im on the fence.

I werent a fan of Primrose Hill,because in general im not a fan of glittery things.On the lips,it has zero colour pay off,and is very glittery.

Mayfair was a tad different,it did add a bit of colour to my lips but nothing major.

The formula of these glosses are quite thick and sticky,so I would advise against swiping straight onto the lips from the tube.Try applying some to your finger and patting it on instead.

I think these would be best used over a lipstick rather than on their own.

The price of these £6.50,which I think is a little steep for any gloss,but would of been fitting if they were to mimic the famous OCC lip tars.(which part of me was expecting after seeing the soho swatch on their site)

What do you guys think,have you tried any of the shades yet?

Ooh dont forget if you place an order for anything,you can use my ambassador code E6852,and you will get a little surprise in your order.

  1. OCC lip tars can be hard to get a hold of in the UK & not many people seem to know about them... This was a perfect opportunity for Eyeko to bring out something similar! It's a shame that they're not pigmented... & I'm totally on you with glittery lippies

    Kaushal xx

  2. Eeep, was lovely meeting you sweet! My favourites are Mayfair and Portobello, I'm way too scared for a bright lip! Hope you had a lovely night x

  3. Hey, you're not the only one who missed out on the cup cakes... i did too. They were there one min, gone the next :(

  4. @kaushal would have been amazing if they were lip tar like

    @michelle nice to meet you too.I think my friend has portabello,will def check that out.x

    @jollybeachang sad faces all around lol

  5. Wish I had picked up Mayfair.It looked mega brown in the tube but seems it would of been lovely over a nude lipstick.

  6. ps I didnt miss out on the cupcakes. They were amazing.

  7. Thanks for the honest review.:D

    I have yet to try the OCC lip tars..:D
