Pixi Lid Last Shadow Pen (The only ones that DON'T crease!)

Okay, hands down these are much better than the Clinique Chubby Sticks for Eyes. Now I am huge fan of Clinique's Chubby Sticks for the lips but their eye shadow versions were plainly okay for me. The texture was crayon like and creased and smudged like crazy.

If you're looking for a cream eye shadow this summer that does not crease and you don't mind using a crayon like format, go for these Pixi Lid Last Shadow Pens. They come in several beautiful shades and stay put brilliantly. By that I mean they simply don't budge or crease even without a primer. Now that's a first for me!

I think I know how it can manage to glue to the eyes so well and it's because of its consistency which instantly feels different to all other cream eye shadows you may have tried. In fact it's much closer to those Tattoo Eye shadow pots by Maybelline. They form a thin film over the eyes and you'll find these to be a little less creamier than your usual ones. That's the first indication that if it's not super creamy, then it will not budge.

I have two neutral shades in my possession namely Brun Beam and Mocha Mauve. Brun Beam is a wearable charcoal taupe shade. Perfect for quick, low key, daytime smokey eye. It's so much less maintenance than a full on powder eye shadow smokey eye. Especially in the Summer, please don't go for that look. Just please.

Mocha Mauve is the most gorgeous, bronzed pink I have ever come across. Such a unique shade this is and works just as well in the inner corners as it does to brighten up tired lids. No caking, no exaggerating fine lines, just plain wash of iridescent colour.

Both of these have a slightly shimmery, almost glossy finish to them hence apt for this weather. I just have one problem with these, the sharpening part! How the hell do I sharpen these without breaking the pencil and wasting a tonne of product. Please Pixi, it's time to upgrade to twist up pens. Who sharpens these days?

Brun Beam & Mocha Mauve

On the whole, get these now! How would I go through Summer without these babies.

Ooh, thanks for the review. I've also been disappointed with eyeshadow crayons in the past but I really want them to work because I just love makeup in the pencil form. I've wanted to try Pixi for a long time so I might give these a go soon! Thanks :) xx
