Eye of Horus is a cruelty-free makeup brand locally made in Byron Bay. I was lucky enough to be sent a PR package from the beautiful goddesses to test the brand out and swap over some of my usual drugstore and high-end make-up products to these natural alternatives. I was gifted a brow pencil, mascara, two metallic liquid eyeliners and a mascara. Though these items were sent to me all opinions are my own.
Eye of Horus Brow Define Pencil in Husk:
I’ve been filling in my eyebrows with a powder/gel duo and an angled brush forever. So I was slightly skeptical about using a pencil. Once I did though, and found that I could get a straighter arch and more natural looking strokes while building a heavier, thicker brow on top I became a convert. The pencil comes in a twist-up mechanism and has a coconut and candellila wax base, meaning the product doesn’t ‘pull’ when applied and glides on while retaining enough toughness to create even strokes with a high-end finish.

Eye of Horus Bio Mascara in Black:
Next up, I tried out the bio mascara and was again extremely impressed. I had previously been using a Rimmel London mascara which I liked, but found to be a little clumpy after time, and the brush was too big for me to fully define my lashes. The bio mascara wand is a lot slimmer with a rounded end that I can move to meet every lash. The formula itself is much nicer in comparison to what I was using. I felt this product achieved a more natural look, coating each lash without creating clumps and extending the lashes to taper and fan out, almost achieving a natural ‘false lash’ look. The photography above depicts the mascara without false lashes or curling. I do find that I experience some fall out from this mascara, without rubbing my eyes. It tends to flake, this isn’t something I have found in other mascaras but has happened often enough with this particular product to be worthy of mentioning.
