What was once a well-kept secret between makeup artists has since become a highly regarded makeup hack amongst beauty lovers – swapping out your eyeliner for eye shadow applied with a damp, fine brush. The result is a more lived-in look, and while the finished product is always a winner, the process itself can be messy and is just not conducive to travel of any kind.
Enter our new collection of Mystikol Powdered Eyeliners. In the pot, the formula looks and feels to be a creamy gel consistency, making it easy to get it onto your brush without having to wet it, however once applied, the formula dries down to a powder.
The beauty of combining these different textures is really in the multiple ways the product can be applied. The creaminess of the liners means you can create a precise, fine line or wing with ease (as well as giving it the staying power of a liquid liner, meaning your Mystikol look won’t budge all day), while the powder dry-down makes it easy to smudge out for a sexy, smoky look. You can even use your Mystikols as a creamy, long-wear base for powder eye shadows, or as an eye shadow on its own. Smudge some product onto your index finger, then swipe it over your eyelid. Our tip? Focus the majority of the product over the outer third of your eyelid and leave the inner corners as light as possible to widen and brighten the eye area.
Encased in packaging so beautiful that you won’t want to put it away, our Mystikols serve a purpose greater than looking good on a dresser. The gold lid of each Mystikol contains a fine brush with which to apply your liner, meaning everything you need to create a flawless smoky eye has been packed into the one pocket-sized product.
Our new Mystikols are rich, creamy and highly pigmented, however the powder formula makes them easy to sheer out to just a subtle wash of colour if you prefer to keep your look light and fresh for the day.
Available in four jewel-toned shades (the sultry grey Smoky Quartz, royal purple Amethyst, deep jet black Onyx and chocolate brown Dark Topaz), each Mystikol contains stunning light reflecting pigments that subtly shimmer in the daylight and stun by moonlight. As with all of our products, our Mystikol’s are hypoallergenic, so they won’t irritate the highly sensitive eye area.
