PARIS – Colette and British indie cosmetics brand Eyeko have joined forces to launch a limited-edition mascara, which is due out early next month.
The new formula for Eyeko x Colette Bespoke Mascara includes a double dose of fibers, billed to give extra volume, and botanical treatments, including arginine and biotinoyl tripepetide, to aid lash health and growth. The mascara’s brush is curved to cover lashes individually in one swipe with a clump-free result, according to a Colette spokesman.
The offering, which will be available in carbon black and is touted as an all-in-one product, comes in Eyeko’s signature zero-waste squeeze tube.
Eyeko x Colette Bespoke Mascara was created in London and manufactured in South Korea. It will sell for 29 euros, or $30.70 at current exchange, beginning on Dec. 5 both in store and on Colette.fr.
Industry sources estimate some 3,000 have been produced.
