Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen is Endlessly Silky

I’ve mentioned it before. I avoid pencil eyeliners. I’ve found the the pencils don’t go on nearly as smoothly as the self-retracting gel eyeliners.

But, I can be wrong, can’t I?

pixiSilkyEye01I recently received the Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen in Black Blue. (Yeah, they call it a pen, but it’s a pencil. Sharpening and all.)

First, “Black Blue” really is an accurate name. Look at that pencil up close and personal. It’s not a dark blue. It’s really like a blue-tinted black color.

There’s a very slight blue shimmer in there, too.

They also come in Black Noir, Black Tulip, Black Cocoa, Deep Plum and True Teal.

I swatched two thicknesses, though both were done with the same pencil (it’s not double-sided or anything.)

As you can see in the swatches, the blue barely shows up, but that’s okay. It’s Black Blue after all!

Now, I need to stop and talk about how smooth this is. The Endless Silky Eye Pen really is silky. Just like with the Pixi Winter Wakeup Eyes palette I tried, this stuff is high quality.

Seriously, it went on so smoothly. One swipe and you’re ready to go. No pulling. It was awesome.

It was so smooth in fact, that that nice rounded point became flattened pretty quick. I imagine I’ll work through this eyeliner faster than others because of this. Lot’s of sharpening!

Some things of note:

  • Went on smooth.
  • Lasted all day without smudging and without primer.
  • Sticks well to the water line.
  • Super waterproof. You’re going to need some good makeup remover to get it off.

So, apart from the fact that it’s waterproof (which I personally loath in any beauty product. I’m weird like that) this stuff is amazing.

This is the best new eyeliner I’ve tried in a while.

So, I give the Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen an…

You can pick this up on Pixi’s website (they updated the site recently with all sorts of new features, btw) and wherever Pixi is sold for $14 suggested retail value.

  1. This sounds like a great product, thanks for the review. I love how it looks on you too. The color is gorgeous and it defines your eyes well without being too harsh like true blacks often are.
