Lou's Reviews :: Eyeko Cream with Extra Glow

Aloha Bloggerinos,

I have been using this for a few weeks now, since I was given it at the Eyeko event way back when. I didn't review it straight away as I felt it was something that needed a good lot of use beforehand. What I can say though is that it certainly hasn't disappointed!


What Eyeko say:

"Eyeko Cream with Extra Glow is a multitasking highlighter with all the benefits of your favourite cult classic Eyeko Cream. This NEW dreamy pink cream is loaded with micro light reflecting pigments perfect for creating a soft focus sheen. Add a flattering highlights to brow and cheek bones, your cupids bow, even collar bones and shins for a touch of moonlit magic."

This product is very similar in results to Benefit High Beam, which I have been fond of for years. However, whilst High Beam retails at a whopping £17.50 for a nail varnish sized pot, the Eyeko Extra Glow is a much more affordable £8.00 for a big tub full- economical non?

I use this cool toned light pink luminescent cream to add a pearly highlighting effect on areas I want to draw attention to, such as: cheek bones, collar bones, shoulders (it makes my skin look luurvvly and adds a gorgeous glow if wearing strappy tops), just under my eyebrows as a highlighter, the bridge of my nose and as Eyeko suggests, even down my legs to create an alluring sheen- oh lala. Sometimes I add a blob to my moisturiser and schmear (there's that word again) it all over for a slight glow.

The formula isn't sticky or drying, which is a big plus for me because I'm quite particular about textures, weird I know. It doesn't really have a scent, which is something else I like. You hardly need to use any to achieve the desired effect so I am confident that this will last me a loonngg time.

All in all I think this a fab product and definitely a regular in my makeup routine.

  2. I have the regular one, but I think I'll use it in the places you do, and see the effect because I didn't know very well what to do with it.l

    thanks

  3. I also use this Eyeco cream! It is amazing! I tend to put it on before my foundation and then if I want a bit more of a glow I rub a bit more on my cheeks. I did guy the Benefit cream which I think was a bit of a rip off, I didn't realise the price until it was too late! I use that under my brow, on the outside of my eye and under my eye. I really like the glowing effect.

    Eyeco is the best though!!
