Could nixies, fairies and sprites be responsible for Pixi True Teal’s enchantingly smooth formula, which flitters across skin like butterfly wings?
Are nymphs gathered around a tiny table somewhere behind a magical dimension door in the back of a nondescript Chinese restaurant somewhere, plotting ways to lure more beauty lovers into falling in love with True Teal’s supernatural pigments?
Or have I simply endured one too many conversations with El Hub about Dungeons & Dragons?
Either way, I’ve been looking for a new teal liner to wear this summer, and Pixi’s $15 Endless Silky Eye Pen in No. 6 True Teal is the frontrunner.
Just look at that color! And it’s so smooth and pigmented…
It has some of the same fairy magic that Chanel Azure does in the way it appears to change color from teal to a dark ocean blue in the light.
- It’s waterproof, and therefore mermaid approved
- Wasn’t tested on animals
- It doesn’t contain any parabens or mineral oils
- It’s one of 10 shades in Pixi’s Endless Silky Eye Pencil line
- Dries in about a minute, so you better work quickly if you want to smudge
One swish along my lash lines, and I’m set for the day. The formula doesn’t even find its way into my creases, which I really appreciate.
It performs fantastically on lash lines, but I don’t think it likes the water as much as Bobbi Brown Jet. I like the job Jet does better along my water lines.
And when I do take True Teal for a spin on my water lines, it’s kind of an involved process because I have to apply 2-4 layers, waiting for each one dry, and even still, the liner breaks up after a while.
For me, it’s probably the only thing holding this pencil back.
Best for: Magic and makeup lovers looking for a soft, smooth, summery, and intensely pigmented teal pencil liner to wear along their lash lines.
