I know, I know, and I agree. Some Pixi pieces, cute as they are, don’t always seem like great values. It’s true. But before you file away the limited edition Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen Taster Trio into your “Ooh, that’s spendy!” category, check this out: it’s only $12.
To top it off, I think the three petite waterproof pencils it contains — a shimmery purple, a matte brown and a matte black — are kindasorta great.
Their smooth texture and intense pigment remind me of the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-Ons, and once I get them along my lash line, BAM! They aren’t going anywhere, even when I wear them without primer.
Other things I like about ’em…
- They don’t contain parabens, mineral oils or preservatives
- They DO contains vitamin E and natural pigments
- They weren’t tested on animals
And I’d be lavishing even more praise upon them if they lasted longer along my waterline, but I think that’s their kryptonite — the waterline. I tried them repeatedly, but they gave up the ghost quickly (and made my eyes tear up a little.
Even though I’ll probably only be using them along my lash line, I really do like the way they look, feel and wear there. With the trio, I see a nice holiday stocking stuffer for a makeup obsessed friend.
AVAILABILITY: Coming next month to Target stores and also online

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. What are you up to today? I just finished a quick run, and then spent about 15 minutes bird watching at the window with Tabs (one of his favorite pastimes). Now I think I’ll head down to the Cheesecake Factory for lunch. Hope you’re having a nice weekend so far.
