Natural and organic Eye liner comparison


I thought I would show you some of the eye liners in my current collection and that also it would be interesting to do a comparison of how they perform. I currently use three different brands: NATorigin, Essential Care and Inika. I have oily eye lids and I didn't have the best relationships with pencil liners previously preferring gel as it doesn't move, but some of these pencils performance have changed my mind and have been getting a lot of use. I don't tend to use eye liners in my waterline very often but I like the way they can create definition on the lash line.

First up is Inika which is a brand that is certified organic, vegan and halal. I currently have three Inika liners and a brow pencil. The eye liners are all beautifully soft and pigmented, they are also the brand that on my eyes seems to move the most due to the fact that they are the most creamy, but I do like them the most for creating night time looks. The pencil doesn't drag on the eye lids at all and you can smudge the pencils in to the eye lid. I love the colour graphite which is a gorgeous gunmetal grey and looks incredibly pretty on the eyes. The Brow pencil in Brunette is quite a warm brown and my brows are very dark so I use this as a liner too, it moves a lot less than the eye liners but it does fade a little during the day. These cost £13.50 each and come in a really good range of colours.  

Next up is Essential Care which is a brand I have talked about a lot before on the blog, I love their concealer so I had high hopes for this pencil and it doesn't disappoint. This has become my everyday eye liner of choice due to the good staying power as this has minimal transfer for me and as I have said before that is something I really struggle with. Essential care's make up range is all palm oil free too which is a big environmental plus point for me, although I always check the brands I use have sustainable sources I am happy to have found a brand that doesn't use it. Essential care are Soil Association certified organic. 

As I have this in brown it tends to be used for my day time looks especially on a work day, however black is on my wish list as I love the formula! At £12.50 each these are slightly cheaper than the Inika. 

Last up is NATorigin and I was sent the eye liner* in black a little while ago to try. It is very creamy and easy to work with. At £7.25 this is definitely the most budget friendly of all the eye liners I own and it also comes in lot's of different colours which is a plus if you like to experiment with your make up. NATorigin are formulated for sensitive eyes and are great if you wear contact lenses or are a hay fever or allergy sufferer as they are approved by Allergy UK and certified organic by Eco-cert. I have a full review of the eye liner here. I will be adding more colours to my collection in the future.

  1. I am looking at trying some more organic eyeliners. I have the brow pencil but it's too light for me so I use that as an eyeliner and I also have one that I won in Ria's blog which is really good! x

  5. is there a guarantee on Essential care's website that says they are all palm oil free? I can't find one. It's crucial for me because I know the destruction the palm oil industry is causing, quickly and irreversibly destroying the oldest rainforests in the world...it's in at least 40% of all products as simply palm oil or a derivative of it, ranging from food to household cleaners to makeup, you name it.

    So could you direct me page where it says that it is all palm oil free?
