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.

PRICE: $12
AVAILABILITY: Coming next month to Target stores and also online

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. :)

    Ooo I can’t wait to find these at Target! I am totally getting them!

  3. Soo says:

    these look so pigmented! I think for 12$ the lack of staying power on the waterline is excusable. there aren’t many liners that stay on mine anyway.

    I miss the Cheesecake Factory. Their portions are huge. Darn, now you made me get a craving for cheesecake and yummy desserts. =)

    These look so lovely x

  6. AnieJ says:

    I’ve actually loved these pen(cils) a long time (I have black and deep plum), and I am particularly fond of their staying power–i.e. their staying DARK power throughout the day. There is nothing worse than doing a smokey look that ends up looking just plain smudgey and light by the end of the day!

    I’ll be snatching up this set, I think, very quickly!

    Hey karen! I’m going into target to give these a look over. As for today, I’m at the theatre watching Drive. Yummy ryan eye candy!
    And guess who I just ran into….

    And I might get a treat at cheesecake factory later too.

  8. mn says:

    I have such a soft spot for purple liners that I may have to check these out, especially with the long staying power. I wear contacts and always avoid wearing liner on the water line for fear it may not stay. Any recommendations on brands that actually stay on the waterline?

    • Soo says:

      hi mn! I wear contacts too and have yet to find a perfect brand that’ll stay on my waterline, but in terms of pencils, Urban Decay and MUFE seem to do a decent job. (UD’s Perversion is fantastic but it can’t be bought on its own.) I’ve found it also helps to set them with a matching eyeshadow. also, Inglot’s gel liner does wonders (when it’s not on my contacts) on my waterline too!

    Mmm, Cheesecake Factory! What’s your favorite flavor of cheesecake? I’m an Oreo cheesecake kinda girl, and the hubby likes their Tiramisu one.

  10. Heidi says:

    That purple is lovely. I may have to treat myself to this set.

  11. The colours look really nice. It’s a shame that they are not effective on the waterline.

    i woke up late, and we had a late breakfast. then we went home and just did nothing – and it was awesome!

    the colors of the pencils are gorgeous, and it will make an awesome stocking stuffer, fo’sho!

    how was the cheesecake factoreehh?

  13. jen. says:

    Those are really pretty! I’m not much of an eyeliner pencil kinda gal, but the colors are nice.

  14. Naj says:

    Such a great value with such useful colours. You know,come to think of it, it’s been years since I wore any liner on my waterline. I’d just line the upper and lower lash line.

  15. artemis says:

    awww….i always line my waterline but i haven’t found the perfect pencil for that yet ;)) nice colors tho. i know waterproof ones aren’t good for that area….ironically because then they smudge….so yeah. hope i’ll afford an expensive one today tho i think there isn’t much of a diff :))

    • Shonya says:

      It’s pricey, but I’ve been using Chanel Le Crayon Khol # 61 Noir for such a long time. I have sensitive eyes, and this is great. It’s just a really nice khol liner which does what it should (and works well no the waterline).

  16. Vy says:

    I’m a sucker for finding great eye pencils and these colors look great! I definitely want to give it a try. Thanks :)

  17. Christy says:

    Those look very nice! I think the navy one looks really pretty too. Drugstore brands have been stepping it up lately! :)

    Those look awesome. :) I don’t need more eye liners…but I do love pixi. haha :)

  19. Shonya says:

    Honestly, I love these pencils. The first time I used them, I used way too much and made a mess, but now it’s my go-to/in-a-hurry/after-workout eye pencil. A little goes a long way, and it really doesn’t budge on the lash line. this and some mascara and I am good to go. Love it! I just wish there was a retailer near me, I have to order from the UK site.
