Trying Something Different With the Pixi Eye Bright Liner

When I opened up a package from Pixi, I was surprised at what I found inside. At first, I thought it was just a regular eyeliner, like the Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen I tried in the past.

Then I pulled the pencil out of the package and was startled to find that it was…beige.

Beige? In a retractable liner pencil?

It’s called the Pixi Eye Bright Liner. It comes in only one color: Nude. (Which is a light beige color.)

Pixi calls it an “inner rim liner” that’s meant to brighten your eyes and make them look bigger and more awake. That’s always good!

Yeah, this is different. I just had to try this sucker out.

How does it work?

The Eye Bright Liner is just like any eyeliner. It’s self-retracting. You just twirl it and more comes out, easy as pie.

Except that instead of a black or brown color, it comes out light beige.

How’s the color?

It’s beige. Not much to say about that.

So, is it good?

The Eye Bright Liner does one thing very well: brightening the water line.

Basically, this liner is a good substitute for white eyeliner. It can do everything that white eyeliner can do (and there are a lot of cool things it can do), but the color isn’t as harsh, noticeable or bright.

So, if you’ve tried white eyeliner and thought it looked kind of tacky or too “out there”, this is a good alternative.

See it in action:

Here’s the thing, though: if you like to reserve your waterline for dark eyeliners, you won’t find much purpose for this product. It has a very specific (and not oft-seen) use.

The Final Verdict

This isn’t an eyeliner. Sure, you could use it that way, but it won’t be very noticeable if the “Nude” color closely matches your skin. Instead, it works very well as a replacement for white eyeliner and sticks to the waterline for hours. If you’ve been looking for something that’ll make your eyes look brighter and more awake, this is for you. For these reasons, I give the Pixi Eye Bright Liner a…


You can pick this up in Target stores or online at Pixi and Amazon for $16 suggested retail price.

  1. Wow, this looks great. The waterline on my eyes is so red, this could really help.

  2. This looks great on you! I have small eyes so I usually wear light colors on my waterline to make them look bigger and I think this will work very well for it. I’ll put it on my wishlist, thanks for the review.

  3. I think it looks really good around the tear duct, really opens your eyes up! I would probably use this in place of white liner…which I find works best on dramatic looks…not so much on your everyday eye makeup. Thanks for the review!

    • Yeah, white eyeliner really is super harsh and dramatic. Good for dramatic looks, but you’re right. It’s not great for every day. The Eye Bright Liner is a good everyday replacement for white eyeliner.

  4. Wow, it does open up your eyes! Also, it’s less noticeable than the white eye liners. Thanks for the review and trick, Trisha!
