Power Week: Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen (rave review)

Greetings everyone! Today has been madness. We’re preparing for another possible snow day (or rather an ice day), and I’ve been rushing around trying to get things done in case everything is closed tomorrow. One of the things I need to get a handle on this year is my schedule. Somehow it's finally sinking in that there is always going to be a lot to do. And since that isn’t going to change, I need to learn to balance things a bit better. That means setting a few limits and drawing a few lines.

Gosh…did somebody just say “lines?” Heh. How about some pretty-colored lines? From Pixi.

Endless Silky Eye Pen

Blurb: Long wearing, non-transfer, and waterproof eye pen gives the intense effect of a liquid liner but is much easier to apply. These gorgeous eye liners glide on like seamless silk, and in a single sweep motion they create a flawless, solid jewel-toned line. They provide the look of a liquid liner but are foolproof to apply and come in six fabulous colours. Endless Silky Eye Pens contain skin-soothing vitamin E and natural mineral pigments. Paraben-free. Mineral oil-free. Preservative-free. Hypoallergenic.

For those of you that are also short on time: Fabulous. Go buy them.

For those who have a bit more leisure…I was blown away by these pencils. The colors look beautiful, glide on (yes, like silk), set to a smudge-free finish, and have the most dense, saturated color I’ve ever come across in a pencil. I hope they keep putting out new colors. I tried the “Black Blue” (looks exactly like black/blue), and I’m planning to get two more (“Black Cocoa” and “Deep Plum”).

Pixi has just re-launched their online store at their website. Check it out for web exclusives, and sign up for the Pixi rewards program. Right now you can get free shipping on orders $50 and up – and receive an additional 20% off online (use coupon code: TWENTYOFF). You can also find these gorgeous pencils at Target.

And now here’s my second Power Ballad installment. Speaking of eyeliner, I suspect Steven Tyler’s eyes have seen a pencil or two over the years. But who cares - he’s hot. Guys who seem like they may suddenly throw off civilization and carry you away are hot. So listen up (and get ready to write your boyfriend’s name on your Pee Chee folder).

  1. Wow. I tried these based on this recommendation and am sorry to say they did not stay on very long. I was disappointed, as I am always looking for good eyeliners! Oh well, I guess everything can't work for everyone!

  2. Oh, I'm so sorry. And pretty surprised. I actually fell asleep one night with them on, and still had eyeliner when I woke up in the middle of the night. It wasn't pretty, but I still had eyeliner.

    Sorry they didn't work for you!

  3. I'm crazy about these. I keep finding excuses to go to Target, and buying "just one more." I think the Target employees are getting ready to stage an intervention.
