Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen Taster Trio Review, Swatches, Photos

I love a good deal on makeup. There’s nothing as satisfying as finding a good sale on makeup, I’d say it’s comparable to winning the lottery.

Makeup junkies get it.

You won’t believe me when I tell you the price on the new Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen Taster Trio.

Jump!

This tasty little trio of mini Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pencils is a mere $12. Yup, all three, all yours, $12 bucks.

Score!

Pixi needs to consider revamping this set next year, tacking on a few bucks, and gifting us with more shades because you seriously won’t believe the brilliant formula at this price.

I’m always a little bit wary of eyeliners that come in a set. Let’s face it, sometimes, well, they suck because the formula is so hard and tugs during application.

Not the case with these little gems. They have a super soft, creamy formula that glides on easily sans skipping, tugging, or drama of any kind. The formula is easy to smudge as well.

The set includes mini pencils in:

  • BlackNoir (intense black)
  • BlackTulip (deep lilac)
  • BlackCocoa (deep brown)

Peeps, you know that Urban Perversion 24/7 Eyeliner is a gift from the makeup gods right? Well, let me tell ya, the Pixi Silky Eyeliner in BlackNoir is right on par with Perversion. It’s a super intense shade of black.

I have drier eyes so I didn’t have problems with these smudging, fading, or migrating. They wore about four hours straight on my waterline before showing some minor wear. The only problem I foresee would be the formula could prove an ickle too emollient for those with oily lids. You might find that on oily lids the formula may indeed smudge a bit and create a little raccoon drama…I’m merely speculating though as I don’t have an oily eye area.

Final word?

LOVES them hard.

You need to pick them up.

A super budget pick for the Holidays.

    aww. i am always on the hunt for a black eyeliner (a girl can never have too much of that!) but i have oily lids so im quite skeptical about these now 🙁

    I love these eyeliners! they’re some of my favorites 🙂
    Blue Black is particularly lovely & is more purple than blue. I use deep plum almost everyday.
    I have oily lids and they last well into the evening for me :]

      that’s fab too hear noemii! I was wondering how they would work on oily eyes/lids ;-D!

    Wow, I’m in shock over the price. Is it too much to hope that Petra Strand continues this trend with her other products? I love the Pixi line but it’s so darn overpriced. One can dream!

    OMG. The black one looks like liquid black…something…that’s an intense black liquid! I must have.

    I’ve only recently discovered Pixi (Gotta love TK Maxx!) and am absolutely loving the brand, I just wish we got all their things here in the UK!
