On a trip to Target not too long ago, I picked up Pixi’s Endless Silky Eye Pen in Deep Plum. I have greenish-blue eyes, and I was getting tired of black eyeliner. I’ve used plum eyeliner with great success before, and decided to try it again. I had read no reviews about the Silky Eye Pen, but it was sheer chance that I chose it out of all the brands in the store. Oh, and the fact that not too many brands make a plum-colored eyeliner had a lot to do with it as well.
Later that week, I went to Sephora, and in the heady rush of being in my favorite store, I bought another plum eyeliner, Aqua Eyes 4L, this time from MUFE . One of the Sephora ladies pointed me to it, and told me I wouldn’t be disappointed.
Dun, dun, dun, foreshadowing!
Anyhoo, I decided to pit Pixi versus MUFE in an eye-to-eye fight. Winner would be the one who 1) was easier to apply 2) had the best color and 3) stayed the longest. Pixi went on the left eye, MUFE on the right. Both are touted as long-lasting and waterproof.
Pixi went on like buttah. Impressive. It has a very silky (hence the name, I’m guessing) texture and it truly did glide.
MUFE went on well, but not as nicely as the Pixi, and I had to go over my eyelid twice because it snagged a bit. MUFE definitely had a more pencil-like texture.
Point to Pixi.
Pixi had a deep, rich plum color that was highly pigmented. It was a nice, dark purple.
MUFE’s plum was lighter, and didn’t seem to be as pigmented to my untrained eyes. For whatever reason, it seemed more on the brown side than the purple side, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but not what I was looking for.
Another point to Pixi.
You’re dying to find out which one lasted longer, right? Because you’re thinking, no way could MUFE lose every category!
MUFE did not last nearly as well as the Pixi, which looked pretty much the same at the end of the day as when I had first applied it.
Pixi for the win!
I went into this thinking that for sure MUFE was going to kick some major Pixi butt, however, that was clearly not the case.
Pixi isn’t exactly cheap at only three dollars less than the MUFE, but I would buy it even if it was more expensive.
Shocking, isn’t it?
