Hi lovelies. Long time huh? I’ve been taking some time off to truly enjoy finishing Uni, doing some freelance makeup work and just lazing around really. But enough about me, today’s post is about Pixi’s Endless Silky Eye Pencil. They have ten lovely colours and I have 4 of them today to show you.
Pixi have some lovely products but I think these gorgeous eye liners have become my stand out favourite from the brand. They are so pigmented, stay on the waterline without the need to reapply and they really are waterproof. When you do Asian bridal makeup, you have to be prepared for the bride to be crying – lots. You need waterproof everything, and if there was a wide selection of waterproof eye shadows that blend easily I’m sure a lot of makeup artists would be stocking up. Now I’ve used these pencils on my lovely friend who did happen to cry very much on her day, and I was so impressed to see that they didn’t budge! I’ve already got hold of another black one so that I have one for my kit and one for me. The formulation is a gel like creamy finish which is great for blending and smudging if need be.
Let me quickly talk you through the shades I have. Number one, the traditional black called Black Noir. This is a true inky black and definitely an essential. You can smoke it after application and once it sets it will not budge. It is very intense which is exactly what I require from a black eye pencil.
This is Black Blue. It’s a deep navy blue, and perfect for pairing with blue outfits or adding a subtle hint of colour. Again once set this doesn’t move at all and it’s nice to sometimes break away from the black norm and use blue on the waterline or just to line the eyes. It’s described as a midnight blue and I would have to agree but there is a slight satin finish to it if you look carefully. Picture of course doesn’t show that, I wish I could insert a sad face here right now.
I really like this one, which is called Oyster Glow. I love using this in the inner corner especially on the bottom lash line inner corner where shadow doesn’t tend to like to stay. It really opens the eye up and pairs really well with Urban Decay Virgin shadow which is my favourite highlighter. It’s a shimmering pinky, peachy cream colour and rather hard to describe but you must test it out if you can as its such a pretty colour. It looks great on the waterline and I definitely need to test it out under black liquid liner as I think it will look a treat teamed with a crisp black line. Must do a look with that soon!
Finally Deep Plum, a deep aubergine satin finish colour which is rich in pigmentation and lovely to wear as an alternative to black as well. I’ve been wearing this on the bottom lash line, under purple eye shadow and I find that purple does at time bring out the brown in my eyes and make it more brighter. Not always though, but if done subtly it does look lovely.
The Pixi Endless Silky Pencils retail for £11, and although that is on the pricier side for the high end market it is quite reasonably priced. I’d love to see Pixi come out with more shades, more sets and matching shadows. However that being said I THINK there should be a gorgeous teal colour coming out in the next collection so I will definitely bring you more information on that once I have it. Overall I would definitely recommend these liners and would say check them out if you get the chance to swatch them. But please bare in mind, the swatches do not want to budge from your hand! You can also pick them up here.
