Loving these eyeliners! Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pens plus Eye Bright Liner and Eye Define Waterline TightlineBlack

Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pens

Pixi does many, many things right and gel pencil eyeliners are at the top of the list. I love a great gel eyeliner – quick, easy, vibrant color that lasts all day. I have some favorites – Make Up For Ever, Bobbi Brown…but I think Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pens ($12) are my stars. They are sooo creamy and they really do glide on. The best part is that they just don’t budge. I can work out, sweat, cry, really cry, rub my eyes, cry some more, it doesn’t matter – unless I am taking my eyeliner off with makeup remover, this eyeliner stays true! Plus, they are perfect for the waterline. This is holy grail stuff, my friends.

Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pens swatches

BlackBlue is an excellent shade. It’s not the run of the mill dark blue or the typical black. I love the mix of black and blue – it gives awesome definition but isn’t harsh.

MatteMulberry is a lovely reddish-brown. It looks great paired with RoseGlow or to mix things up I use this to line my upper lid and then line my lower lid with BlackBlue.

VelvetViolet really surprised me. I didn’t think I would have much use for this bright violet purple, but it’s one of my favorites! I do a simple eye look with it – just a sheer wash of color, like MAC Painterly, then line my upper lid with VelvetViolet and my lower lid with BlackBlue, and follow with tons of super black mascara. It’s divine.

RoseGlow is just gorgeous – a shimmery golden bronze that is so flattering, especially if you have hazel eyes. It’s really perfect paired with MatteMulberry.

Application is truly delightful with lots of play time before the gel liner sets. I adore these shades, and there are 17 more shades available so take a look – your perfect shades are bound to be in there somewhere!

Eye Bright Liner Nude

Eye Bright Liner Nude ($11.99) is different from the MatteNude Endless Silky Eye Pen which I reviewed HERE. This has a smaller tip which makes it better for precision lining. It’s also a non-sharpening pen, so you twist it up instead of using a pencil sharpener. I always feel like I get a fresh point with a sharpener so I don’t know if this is a plus or not – your preference, really.  Otherwise, I think it’s basically the same as the MatteNude Endless Silky Eye Pen – a peachy/pink nude shade that finishes the waterline and really opens up the eye making it look doe-eye huge. It is waterproof so it lasts all day, and it works for sensitive eyes.

Eye Define Waterline TightlineBlack

Eye Define Waterline TightlineBlack ($14) had me all excited – a thin black liner for the waterline and for tightlining! I was hoping for the same awesome staying power as the rest of the Pixi eyeliners, but sadly this smudged on me pretty quickly. This has the same non-sharpening pen style as the EyeBright Liner Nude. I wanted to love it but I didn’t. I’ll stick with the Endless Silky Eye Pens for my waterline and tightlining – they work great and last all day long.

Whatever your eyelining pleasure, Pixi has wonderful options. Personally, I don’t think you can beat the Endless Silky Eye Pens and I would love to collect all 21 shades.  You can find them and other great Pixi products at Target stores nationwide.  – Lisa

IT Cosmetics Customer Favorites 4 Piece Collection

This collection features fan favorites and I am a huge fan of the Tightline™. This thin wand does some amazing things – it is the perfect mascara for lower lashes, and it also primes upper lashes for thickening mascara. What it does best, though, is tightline the upper lid.

I just lift my lid up a bit, then sort of wiggle the wand along the base. Tightlining was always a chore, but it’s unreal how easy it is with this awesome baby! Tightlining really defines eyes and makes them look incredible. In this pick, I have no eyeliner on – just tightliner and some mascara.

A new favorite for me is the Je Ne Sais Quoi™ Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment.

I’ve been a big fan of all the Je Ne Sais Quoi™ lip products in the past and this one is a great addition. It’s not a lipstick, it’s a super hydrating lip balm that gives just a hint of color to lips. It really feels amazing on and gives a great slip to lips. I have extremely pale and colorless lips to begin with, so I wish this had even more of a tint, but anyone with a little natural color to their lips will love it. The packaging is superb. I love how the cap clicks into place so there is no chance this will come apart in your purse. Even the box is awesome – love the little inspiration message!IT Cosmetics


What’s especially fun about this 4 piece collection from IT Cosmetics is that it’s a twist on favorites. There are new favorites and old favorites. My old favorite is the Supersize CC+ Illumination Color Correcting Illuminating Full Coverage Cream SPF 50+. Now that’s a mouthful.

CC+ Illumination CC Cream has been a favorite of mine since last summer. I’ve been crazy about IT’s CC Cream since the very beginning and the Illuminating version makes it that much better especially in the sunnier months. This is an all-in-one product since it contains

*anti-aging serum

*a moisturizing day cream

*skin-perfecting primer

*skin-brightening serum

*color corrector

*full coverage

*SPF 50+ broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection

All this in a supersize 2.53 fl oz size. The normal size, 1.08 fl oz, is left behind in the dust with this supersize one. The original costs $38 so one more than double the size makes this an exceptional bargain when you realize the entire TSV costs $59.94. I love the application of this CC+ Cream as well as the coverage. It’s an all day deal for me plus Fair is truly fair. It’s also available in Light, Medium, Tan, and Rich. The lighter color sets sell out quickly though so grab it now.

My new favorite: Heavenly Skin CC+ Skin Perfecting Brush.

It’s almost an oxymoron to call something a favorite and say it’s new. But IT Cosmetics has a line of brushes that are not to be believed. This cruelty free brush has a custom cut brush head. The application of the CC+ Cream with this brush is definitely heavenly. The soft brush hugs the natural contours of your face. This brush gives me an airbrushed finish. To have this along with the IT Cosmetics Supersize CC+ Illumination Cream is perfection. You’ll use this brush over and over and over.

IT Cosmetics’ TSV will be available only on 6/25. The number of the set is A278194. Whenever we are lucky enough to share the TSV with you in advance we always worry that you won’t understand what a great value this is and how quickly it sells out. Be sure you don’t make us worry!!
