Pixi By Petra Cat Eye Ink Review




I use liners as often as I use Brow products which means - Every time I leave home!

I have tried so many liners (well I tried so many beauty products) for the past decade and I can't help but get amazed on how there's always something NEW to offer from various brands!

A must mention is from Pixi by Petra called Cat Eye Ink Liquid Eye Liner.  I assume, this is specifically made for cat-eye look lovers out there?

Pixi By Petra says ---
"This highly pigmented, waterproof liquid liner features a slanted tip, making it easy to create the perfect cat eye flick on any eye shape! The long lasting and fade-resistant formula has a non-feathering finish. 12 hours of intense colour wear."

If you are a fan of liquid eyeliners, you've probably heard and even tried those felt-tip liners because I hail that as the easiest type of liquid liner packaging to use especially for first-timers and maybe second and third-timers who have shaky hands?  

The version of Pixi by Petra has the same "felt tip" liner in mind but what makes this unique is the slanted tip, this reminds me so much of those calligraphy pens sold in bookstores recently!

I got one in Intense Black with swatches below.
As you can see, same as most felt-tip type of liner packaging, the ink kinda creates a bit of "splatter".

For a makeup artist and trainer like myself, I actually find it a bit difficult to use this applicator at first!  I guess I am used to soft "brush hairs" from most liquid liners so I felt it rubs my sensitive eyelids a bit in a negative way!  But with a bit of practice, I actually got the hang of it and it doesn't hurt anymore as the first time I tried.

Note to first-time users: Be very gentle in application and do not press hard!

AMW tip: gently press the tip starting from the center of your upper lashline and connext short lines.  Angle the tip from the outer corner up toward the end of your brow and press!  The technique more on stamping.

What I personally like about the Cat Eye Ink by Pixi by Petra is the fact that it is indeed intense black!  It has a sheen to it making my eyes pop like no other!  But for application level, I still prefer to use regular brush pen in liquid liner application (personal choice) but I like using this when I have false lashes on because I find this to be the easiest tool to apply on lash bands and the intense black shade is just perfect for it!

As for the "cat eye look", the slanted flat tip applicator definitely makes winged liner easier and more even to do!

How do you find the applicator for Pixi by Petra Cat Eye Ink?
Would you give such applicator a try after seeing the result?

Or do you wish to stick to regular applicator?

  1. I'm brush type applicator girl since day 1 I might find this difficult to use at first though, this is too black and perfect if I want a dolly eye look.
