Mayfair

I’m not really a big fan of lip glosses as they often just feel heavy and sticky – even if they do look lovely. But eyeko tends to run quite a few promotions and a few weeks ago they offered a free lipgloss when you spent over £15 - they're normally £6.50. Well I picked up a few bits that I’d been meaning to try for a while and I got Mayfair for free(Mayfair was actually my favourite colour out of their range!)
You get 13.5g and it comes in a clear squeezy tube with the classic eyeko art printed around it. The packaging isn’t anything fancy but I’d much prefer to have simple packaging like this with a little bit of a twist instead of paying extra for sleek packaging.
As far as the product it self goes it’s quite a thick, creamy gloss which actually has quite a bit of pigmentation. Mayfair is a really wearable colour as it’s in between a rosy nude and a mauve- I’ve tried this over a few lipsticks and it always looks lovely as it can provide a pretty wash of colour over nudes and alternatively it can add some depth to darker colours.
This is what it looks like on its own and personally I love it :) it’s not in your face and it’s just so wearable - it smells fruity too which is an added bonus! (It’s also just the right size to pop in your purse to reapply throughout the day)

P.S Mayfair is apparently limited edition so you want to try this colour out you might have to rush and order on their website xx

I love the Eyeko lip glosses, they are really glossy and actually seem to last quite awhile on my lips. They smell lovely too! :)

I find if you find the right lipglosses, especially the high end ones, they're never sticky. Love this colour, looks great on your skin tone!
Have a great one! x NTA @ blogspot.com

your lips look lovely, I rarely wear gloss as I hate the sticky feeling but might give this one a go. You have a really nice shape to your lips too.

I love Mayfair!! I have used it loads now and would definitely repurchase - I did it on a FOTD post.

@marta it really is a gorgeous colour - you can't go wrong with it:)
@XTNA i've found some high end ones are actually stickier - i think it just depends as the formula can change within the same brand x

Love how the colour turned up on your lips! In the packaging it looks quite dark, but on your lips it's perfect! x

..R May A.. said...

@Gertrude I know what you mean, I was a little scared about how dark it looked in the tube but it's perfect on the lips :)

That's a gorgeous color on you!

Winnie said...

It looks like a lovely colour on you! I like lipgloss but only certain brands because I find it hard to find a consistency that I like and doesn't smell too chemically.

Katie said...

Pretty color!

..R May A.. said...

@winnie this is probably perfect for you then - it smells fruity and has a great consistency :)
@Rebecca I know! I was so pleased when I saw the shade!! x

What a great colour, nice for everyday as you said it's not in your face and very wearable. I think I still prefer lipstick though
