Before receiving an email about Eye of Horus I had never previously heard of the brand, So I thought along with a review I'd add some information on the brand to learn a little bit more about their unique stance on make-up.
'Eye of Horus is an Australian, Byron Bay brand of colour cosmetics.
Illuminating essential range of eye makeup based on formulas of the Ancient Egyptians, the originators of beauty and mystique, with sacred ingredients including Organic Moringa Oil “Oil of the Pharaohs”, claimed by the gods for its beautifying and regenerating powers and the ancient oil of Castor Oil.
In a short time the brand has already reached cult status amongst fans, celebrities and professional Make-up Artists and has exported to New Zealand, Ireland, Iceland, Hong Kong, the Philippines, the UK & Europe.
Our Goddess Mascara and Liquid Define became Finalists in the 2014 Beauty Shortlist Awards on the ‘Best Mascara’ and ‘Best Eye Liner’ categories respectively. Eye Of Horus gained itself another fabulous award in 2015 - Best Make-up Brand in the Latest in Beauty Awards.
The range was designed to Awaken The Goddess Within ® every woman by enhancing her natural beauty making her feel like a true Goddess. The Goddess has been around for as long as we know of and has a strong presence in ancient civilisations. We have become accustomed to believe that the Goddess is a mythical concept however this is far from the truth. There is a Goddess in every woman waiting to be aroused. A Goddess who knows she is beautiful the way she is, confident in herself and worthy of all the love in the world.'
So not only do they pride themselves on being the make-up for goddess but they are also 100% Natural Ingredients, Paraben Free, Cruelty Free and Vegan, Pretty impressive right?
I received 3 of the gorgeous Liquid Metal Eyeliners in the shades Alchemy Gold, Ancient Pewter and Copper Sphinx. All three come in the most gorgeous gold packaging and when you flip the box over it has a strip in the same colour as the eyeliner so it's east to differentiate the colours while still in the boxes.
The eyeliners themselves are pretty stereotypical for liquid eyeliners, long handle for easy grip, and a dip in lower part with a flat base to sit on surfaces. Although I found the tip of the eyeliner to be a little bit unusual, the nib is long and flexible just like a felt tip pen and I'm not going to lie, It made the application a little tricky and I did struggle with getting an opaque outcome.
The colour of all 3 shades are beautiful, although the copper translates slightly too orange on my skin tone. I would also say they do take a little bit of patience to work with as the colour pay off swatched isn't exactly what its like on the face, if possible I would lay down a white base before applying this eyeliner just so you could really see the colour pop. The longevity of these eyeliners however is pretty good, the swatches on my arms lasted a good 8+ hours before I scrubbed them off in the shower.
Have you tried anything from Eye of Horus?
