Pixi Beauty is literally everywhere at the moment, they have so many new makeup releases and collaborations and can you believe that I have never tried any Pixi makeup, I have tried their skin care but none of their makeup, so I was recently sent some lovely goodies from Cult beauty to try including some makeup sets. I think Pixi is definitely more well known for their iconic glow tonic, I have got to be honest this is my second bottle of this and I’m still not wowed by it and not totally sure its changed or helped my skin that much, although so many people rave about it, but I guess it can’t work for everyone. But I do love the hydrating milky mist, this is the second one I’ve purchased, I love hydrating face sprays so this is one of my favorites, I also love the glow mud cleanser and face mask, those are great to use together.
I was definitely excited to try out some of the makeup, I had my eye on these liquid fairy light eye shadows, Isn’t the name so cute?! I also got the hello glow set and the new Pixi Weylie collaboration which is the dimensional eye creator kit. Does anyone else love the fact that Pixi collaborate with lots of different beauty influencers, I just love that.
This set is in collaboration with beauty vlogger Weylie Hoang, this eye kit contains a gorgeous universal eye shadow palette, you can tell it was created to be versatile and flatter so many eye shapes and skin tones, it has 3 shimmer shades and 3 matte, and I think this is the perfect everyday essential palette, the shades are my typical shades that I will reach for on a day to day basis. You have the perfect shades for a transition and crease colour as well as creating a smokey look and adding a bit of glam with the shimmers. This palette was very well thought out. This was obviously the first time I’ve tried Pixi eye shadows and I was really impressed with the pigment and how well they blended, they feel really silky and smooth as well.
This set also comes with a 2-in 1 kohl black liner, one side is liquid and the other side is pencil, which is what everyone needs and uses, so this is a perfect duo to have for everyday as well as on the go and travel. I wish I could say I was amazing at doing winged liner but I’m really not, which makes me sad so I don’t use liquid liner a lot but I do love a good old kohl pencil and this is very creamy and pigmented.
The shades are gorgeous and extremely pigmented, it has a champagne gold and rose gold shimmer and then the most perfect camel brown shade, I think that one is my favourite but I love the warm tones in this palette. I think you could create so many looks with this and you can even use the top shimmer shades as highlighters they’re that pigmented. I can see why this collection is everywhere at the moment and why so many people are loving it.
You should all know by now I love my glow products, so this set was perfect to try out a selection of their glow essentials. It contains a liquid illuminator, blush duo and lip plumping gloss.
straight away I loved the gloss, its my perfect shade I go for, this one is called honey sheen and is a gorgeous nude with a hint of shimmer and I love the fact it’s a lip plumper as well. I always love fuller looking lips. This is definitely going to be one of my handbag essentials.
now these products achieve a subtle glow, rather than that intense glow and highlight that everyone has become addicted to, but I love that lit from within look, which is why I love adding liquid illuminators in with my moisturiser and foundation, it just gives a lovely radiant glow to the skin.
Same the the blush duo, it is not as pigmented as a normal blush but I love the fact you can mix both the shades and add a pinch of colour to the cheeks and face but adding that subtle glow, I’m starting to really love using radiant powders all over the skin at the moment.
Another product I’m obsessed with and that is glitter eye shadows, you should probably all know by now how much I rave about the stilla ones, well I’m hoping some of you might be pleased to know, I might have found a cheaper alternative here, these have more product and are only £15 whereas the stila ones are £23 and from my first impression of these fairy lights they’re exactly the same. I have the shades Bare Brillance and Passhion Light, Bare Brillance is my favourite out the two as it is a little more wearable for me and seems more sparkly and intense, I think it comes down to the pigment and colours as I find the same with the stila ones, they aren’t all consistant, I find some a little patchy and others really pigmented, some have more base colour and others its more glitter which I think is the case with these as well. But I have been impressed with these so much I’m going to order myself some more of the lighter shades. So If you love these shadows like me then you must add these to your collection and give them a try.
Bare Brillance is described as a pale champagne rose and Passion light is a rich copper bronze.
As I said at the start the glow tonic I wasn’t blown away by, but I do still use it occasionally, maybe I need to give it another go before I completely write it off, but the Hydrating Milky Mist is one of my must haves, I’ve just recently purchased this as a back up for when I run out of my other one, I just find it so refreshing to use, you can use this over makeup or as skincare.
I really want to try the double cleanse that everyone raves about which is also one of Pixi’s popular products. I have got my eye on the glow mist, but it also comes in a duo with the glow mist and makeup fixing mist which again sounds like something I would love so I might have to get the duo as its better value for money….. If you haven’t noticed by now I have an addiction to sparkly eye shadows, face mists and glow products, I would definitely say they’re my favourite makeup and skin care products.
I have been very impressed with the makeup bits I have tried and definitely want to pick up a few more products to try out, I have heard amazing things about their liquid lipsticks as well that I might have to add to my ever growing list , I’m also really surprised at the price point as well, the gift sets I have seen online are great value for what you get, why didn’t I try more products from pixi beauty sooner?!
So If you love Pixi and need to stock up on some favourites or like me you want to try out something you haven’t yet from Pixi like the makeup or skincare products then now is the perfect opportunity as cult beauty currently have free worldwide shipping on pixi this month and you all know I love shopping on cult and promoting their brand of the month. 🙂
