REVIEW: Eyeko Cream w/ Extra Glow


I’ve only used Eyeko Nail Polishes before and have yet to try any of their other products so I was excited to try their 3 in 1 cream for moisturizing, highlighting and eye cream. As soon as I opened the jar and swatched it on my skin I couldn’t even imagine using it as an eye cream of face cream. Though I had my doubts, I tried it on my eyes and face and definitely can’t see myself, or anyone, using this as a moisturizer. It made me feel like I was putting Benefit High Beam all over my face. This product has a 6 month expiration date for a large 28 ml/1 fl oz jar. If I use this soley as I highlighter I will not make much of a dent in the product before it expires. As a highlighter, it works well. I like to put this on the tops of my cheek bones to give my face an extra glow. In comparison to Benefits High Beam, I would definitely chose High Beam over Extra Glow. Extra Glow IS more apparent on your skin, more pink, and more chunky than High Beam. High Beam is much easier to blend in and is more subtle.

PRICE: £8.00

PACKAGING: I don't like dipping my fingers in a jar, it's not very sterile. I would prefer this in a squeeze tube.

The past few experiences I have had with Eyeko have been rather disappointing. First I had the problem with the two new nail polishes and now this cream. Have you tried this cream? What are your thoughts?

  1. I agree, I wouldn't want my face to be shiny all over like that. I've never tried their products but I'll take it from you and stay away from the moisturizer. Thanks:)

  2. I like the idea that it's a cream because it seems kind of fool proof, but I agree, I don't think it would be good as a moisturizer or eye cream.

    It would probably be nice for those late "I-need-to-leave-in-3-minutes" days.

  3. Hey Cheryle. I had no idea that this product has a 6 months expiry date! :o I like this prodouct, i mean it's okay its not too bad, but the only down side to it, like you mentioned, i hate digging my fingers in the pot and it's not that sanitary, wud be better if it comes in a tube. I find that this product is wayyyy to pink! :S However, i purchased the bronze version and I love that one more! gives you a natural tan and it works way better than the eyeko glow! :D

  4. I think its really important to know what you are putting on your face. This thick cream past would never touch my face.
