Pixi Lid Last Shadow Pen

7/16/13



I always love a good cream color base. Perfect for placing underneath an eyeshadow and easy to use when you just want a quick wash of color. Unfortunately, I never have much luck with cream colors because they tend to crease on my ridiculously oily lids. Even with a primer
like Urban Decays I still  will have some creasing by the end of the day. That being said I have always been interested in trying something from the Pixi line ( you can find it at Target) and these seemed like a good alternative to my NYX Jumbo pencils. I picked up the colors Mocha Mauve and Bronze Brilliance but they had quite a few easy to wear color choices.

The consistency of these is a little hard to get used to if you are a big fan of super creamy eye products. These pencils are creamy but they are very stiff and dry down quick. I would suggest working on one lid at a time because once these bad boys dry, they don't move, like at all. As you can see the lighter color Mocha Mauve has been getting all the love. It's similar to NYX's  cult favorite Ice Mocha but the Pixi version is an easier color for me to pull off. I have been wearing this all over the lid with just a little bit of mascara and it does a beautiful job of brightening up my look.

At $18 I'm still not sure if I can justify the price. The pencils have vitamin E to help nourish and protect the eyelid's and also peptide's to plump fine lines. Since this product is pricey, I appreciate them trying to put in some healthy properties. Overall I'm a fan.

Have you tried anything from this brand?
