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!
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.

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

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…
