Eyeko Chi Chi Polish NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 27 - 2010

This one goes out to Charlie from LadyoftheLane.

Eyeko Chi Chi is a rosy pink which leans slightly toward gold.  The glitter particles are chunky and suspended in a sheer pink base.  3 coats to achieve the opacity shown above though you could also layer this over a pink creme to achieve the same effect in less glitter coats.  It’s girlie, but the rosiness (rather than pink) stops it from being too juvenile.

I must be into a bit of S&M with these 3 coats, my eyes are watering at the thought of the removal already (where’s my tin foil).

You’ll need a top coat to even out the rough finish from the glitter.  I did one layer and it’s still rough (though not scratchy) to the touch.  It reminds me a little of Butter London’s Rosie Lee although I don’t think the glitter is quite so dense or the finish so foiled.

Eyeko Chi Chi is priced at £3.50 from the Eyeko website who offer worldwide delivery.

    That looks pretty, I love pink glitters. I recently bought NARS Arabesque and this looks incredibly similar. Will have to check this out.

  10. Reading that made me laugh. I looked at the picture and thought, that looks so pretty but it’s going to be a bugger to get off. Then I spotted your comment! I hope it’s not as bad as you anticipate.
