You will probably have seen the new Pixi Pretties collection all over Instagram over the past few weeks. Pixi certainly know how to do PR packages! Once again, they have teamed up with some influencers to release a variety of makeup products, which I've been using and I want to share my thoughts with you today. Pixi offers really great quality products at affordable prices, in both skincare and makeup so if you have yet to try anything from the brand, this range might be a good place to start!
Pixi + Chloe Morello Lip Icing: I already own a Lip Icing, which I love because it's non-sticky and works really well as a lip topper rather than a standalone gloss as it isn't overly pigmented. The three new shades are Bon Bon, which is a bright pink, Parfait, which is a medium pink (my personal favourite) and Sorbet, which is a pale blue/purple hybrid. The finish is high-shine with a micro-glitter running through them, which helps lips to look plump and they feel really nourishing due to the rose hip and marula oils in the formula. They have a very sweet scent - good enough to eat! Sorbet is unwearable for me because the shade just looks ridiculous on my lips - blue toned lips are not a good look! The other two are beautiful, worn alone or as a topper. Parfait is now in my everyday makeup drawer. £16 each.
Pixi Heart Defensor Eye Palette: This is my favourite of all the new releases! I love Pixi eyeshadows, in general, because they are buttery soft, pigmented and easy to blend and this palette is no exception. The packaging is standard for Pixi - quite flimsy so I wouldn't take it on holiday but will be fine in makeup drawers. Inside are eight gorgeous, warm toned shadows in a mixture of matte and shimmer finishes. It's pretty versatile in terms of looks that can be created for both day and night. A quick sweep of any of the matte shades is ideal for a day look but the pigmented shimmers really take it up a notch for night-time. A gorgeous palette for any warm-toned lovers at a brilliant price. £18.
Endless Shade Stick: Everyone should have one of these shadow sticks in their makeup bags because they are so easy to use! Just swipe on, blend and you're good to go! I have oily lids so I always use a primer but it isn't necessary for those of you without oily lids as it's pigmented and long-lasting. Once set, it won't budge. I love the copper shade and I hope that they release more shades. Again, this has gone straight into my regular makeup drawer. £12.
Glow-y Powder: There are two shades in these powders to choose from: Fetch, which is a rose gold /bronze shade and Wednesdays, which is a rose pink shade. As highlighters, these won't suit all skin tones, however they will work as eyeshadows too. The formula is smooth and creamy (quite delicate as Wednesdays almost broke when I dropped it) and they apply evenly to add a beautiful sheen to the skin without a discoball effect although intensity can be built. I can imagine that I will wear these a lot next summer along my collarbone and shoulders. £14.
RachhLoves The Layers Highlighting Palette: Like the Glow-y Powders, the shades in this highlighting palette won't suit all skin tones, but they are multi-use products as they will work on eyes. The large pans (Tee and Clutch) are the main shades that I would use on my cheeks in this palette and the three smaller shades can give a multi-dimensional effect when layered on top. All have the same beautiful, creamy formula that is a dream to apply as it doesn't settle into fine lines. The highlighters can be used lightly for a day look or layered for a more intense look. Used wet, the intensity is increased further. They're really good value at £22.
Maryam MYC Lit Kit: These duo sets each contain a Liquid Fairy Lights and a Liquid Lipstick. I love the formula of both. If you usually avoid liquid lipsticks because they are drying, I highly recommend trying the Pixi offering because they are pigmented, long-wearing and comfortable to wear. The Liquid Fairy Lights are cooling on the lids, full of sparkle and easy to use. I find it so much easier to use a liquid glittery shadow than powder as the fallout is minimal - essential if you have sensitive eyes. The day kit contains a rose gold shadow and pinky-red lipstick and the night kit contains a deep blue/black shadow with silver and gold glitter and a nude lipstick. Amazing value at £16.
Overall, it's a great collection and some of these products would make gorgeous Christmas gifts. Which one is your favourite? I'd love to hear!
