INIKA Certified Organic Eyeliner Review & Swatches

INIKA are committed to producing luxury natural makeup, that not only are free from petrochemicals and other synthetic substances but also aim to maintain their Certified Organic, Halal, Cruelty Free and Vegan status. All of this is pretty much unheard of in the beauty world. The brand isn’t cheap, they’re £11.75 each, but no more so than MAC, Illamasqua or any other higher-end makeup brand.

I have two of their Certified Organic Eyeliners, Coco (brown) and Graphite (grey/silver). The texture is soft and glides smoothly on to the eye. It feels so nice to apply. The creamy consistency allows the product to be blended to create a softer or smoky look. The Graphite shade is especially beautiful, a pewter silver that shimmers and looks pretty when it catches the light.

My only problem is that due it’s creamy formulation, it has a tendency to be easily smudged. I’m an avid liquid eyeliner user, and I’m just not accustomed to wearing a soft eyeliner. One wipe/rub of my tired eyes and this stuff goes everywhere! Anybody with oily eyelids is really going to struggle to keep this product on.

Shame, as Graphite is rather pretty.

Anybody have any tips on how to make this stuff stick? I already use a primer, and putting eyeshadow on top seems to defeat the object of having that beautiful colour on show.
