Introducing: Eye Of Horus Cosmetics + Looks

Monday, July 27, 2015
Eye of Horus is an Australian brand that I have seen on blogs previously and also on social media and on the whole I've read great things so I was really excited when I had the opportunity to try some of their products! 


I am always looking for a good brow pencil as my brows are slightly sparse and I love the look of full thick brows (think Cara Delevingne). Brows products can be difficult for me to choose as my hair colour is always fading and changing but I want my brows to be quite ashy toned and my brows are also quite unruly. This brow product has a angled pencil on one end and a brow gel on the other. The colour of this pencil matches my brows SO well, it is really quick and easy to use and the brow gel has amazing hold which my brows need but for some I think it would be too strong/hard on the brows, if that makes sense! This product has become an instant love! Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5. 


When it comes to mascara I always look for natural effects over full on spider lashes, which I hate. I also look for waterproof mascaras and natural bristles brushes instead of plastic; however this mascara is the opposite. While the brush is plastic, it is easy to use and I love mascaras with which I can slowly build and really take my time (which is rare to find) but this one is great! I can time my time to apply it and it makes my lashes look lengthened and very defined and very black although it doesn't really provide any volume or curl. The mascara is suitable for sensitive eyes, it contains vitamins and it just doesn't clump up...ever. It is easy to remove which is great as I do have sensitive skin and most mascaras irritate my skin when I'm trying to remove them because they are just so difficult to remove. Overall rating: ★★★☆☆, 3/5.



I am a big fan of winged liner, it looks gorgeous on most people but it isn't the easiest thing to master but after years of practice I think I'm pretty good and having a fine tipped liner always helps. This liner brush is just perfect, it is fine but flexible and even though it is a marker pen style brush, it is quick to fuss free to use. I love the brown shade too, it's a nice change from the standard black liner. As you can see from the photos above, I was able to create thin, precise lines and a fine tip to the wing of my liner in a minute or two. My own problem with this liquid liner is that as I was using it it did seem to be a little dry and I think that will just get worse with time but so far it is a great liner. Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5. 


I don't think teal is a shade that particularly suits my eye colour but this pencil is just gorgeous. I used it on my lower lash line with some eyeshadows from MeMeMe on the lid. The pencil blends easily with fingers and less easily with a brush or the smudger on the end of the pencil. It doesn't show up too well on the waterline but I would only use this kind of shade on the lash line anyway. The longevity is good on me, it looks vibrant and perfect for summer!  IF you are looking for this pencil to be pigmented on the waterline then you will be disappointed. Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5. 


Another pencil in the same range of the teal shade; they all contain botanical oils and waxes and they don't irritate my skin and I have eczema around my eyes. The pencil is fairly good on the waterline initially but my eyes can water throughout the day so I don't think it will last very long. The pencil can be used on the lid too, as I have done in the photo above, and with some work it looks gorgeous, in my opinion. It can be a little patchy and it takes a while to get the opacity I wanted but with a shimmer beige over the top it looks so pretty! Overall rating: ★★★☆☆, 3/5. 


Bronze shades are my fave for the eyes, I think it suits all eye colours and looks! This bronze shade is so pretty and the pencil is creamier and smoother than the previous two, in my opinion. I love this shade on the lower lash line for extra natural definition. Longevity is pretty good on the skin but again it isn't great at all on the waterline. This is my favourite liner from the three I received and it is the one I will get the most use out of. Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5. 

Overall, I adore the brow pencil and the liquid liner as well as the bronze liner. I'm going away for a few days and I have already packed the brow pencil as it has instantly become an essential in the makeup routine - I will be buying another when this one runs out! The liners are fairly good but they can be a little patchy and they don't show up too well on the waterline on me unfortunately. The mascara is great for me as it is SO easy to remove (with a micellar water) and it adds so much definition and length but it's not for you if you want volume. I love the ethos of the brand and the use of more natural ingredients which is perfect for me as I have sensitive skin. 

Have you tried any products from Eye of Horus? What do you think of the eye makeup looks I've created?

  1. I've heard great things about their liners, but they're kinda pricy! However based on your review, I think I'm going to skip them and stick to my MAC ones. Great post!

  3. I've seen this brand before and always loved the packaging and was intrigued by the fact that it's all about natural ingredients. Shame some of their eyeliners are a bit patchy, I can see what you mean in the photos x

  10. I have read a couple of posts on this brand now and I think they sound pretty good! Some of the things I wouldn't usually wear e.g. the turquoise liner, but it's always nice to mix it up a little!
