Product Review: Eyeko London Lips in Portobello

Name: London Lips in Portobello
Brand: Eyeko
Size: 13.5g
Price: £6.50

From Eyeko’s website:
Make way for Eyeko London Lips Lip Gloss poured into pretty tubes stamped with iconic London images. Long-lasting colour and non-stick shine make for smooth application in a choice of 3 sheer and 3 cream blends.

What I liked:
– beautiful sheer and shiny color
– easy to apply
– lasts 3 hours on me
– the packaging
– the price

What I didn’t like:
– if you like pigmented lipglosses, this is not for you
– if you have dry lips, you need to wear a lip balm underneath

Eyeko has just released a new lipgloss line called London Lips. They are packaged in a simple see-through tube with symbols of London – such as the Big Ben, the UK flag, the double-decker bus and of course, the Eyeko logo, stamped all over it. I really liked how they managed to spice up and make pretty such an ordinary plastic tube! But what about the lipgloss itself?

Available in six shades, I had the chance to try Portobello, a sheer pink infused with gold shimmers that has a very shiny finish. It is a beautiful, no-fuss color that can be paired with everything and always looks good. You just swipe it on and you’re good to go.

It has a thick texture that is easy to apply and spread on the lips and it’s just a tiny little bit sticky. I think even girls who can’t stand sticky glosses would like this, as really, the stickiness is just barely noticeable. It feels quite comfortable on and although it’s not the most moisturizing gloss I’ve tried, that can be fixed by applying a layer of lip balm underneath.

On me, it lasts about 3 hours if I don’t eat which I think it’s quite impressive for a gloss. Most usually barely last 2 hours before completely disappearing! I also like the scent: it’s fruity and sweet but not overly so. It’s not strong and you can’t smell it once on the lips.

Summary
Eyeko London Lips in Portobello is a sheer pink gloss with golden flecks that make your lips shine. The texture is thick  and just barely, barely sticky but not that moisturizing so using a lip balm with this is necessary. It lasts 3 hours on me, smells wonderful and the packaging is cute.

Rating: 3.5/5
