You know you can not pay that much attention to something and then suddenly, you can’t stop noticing it? Like, a stain on the wall. Ok that’s that terrible example. But that is what I am trying to say about Pixi.
Sure, the brand has been around for a long time. The brand has always been quite interesting to me, because they generally try and make things interesting (such as their credit card sized eyeshadow palettes back in the day) and I like that. Recently, they have really excelled in both skincare (what with their work with Caroline Hirons) and make up too (their palettes contain a LOT of product for an affordable price).
Here are a few products I have been using for 3+ months and have been enjoying from the brand:
This is a roll on eye serum which contains peptides and works to refresh the eye area. The ball roll on means that you can give yourself a little eye massage too.
The reason why I like this is because I am SUPER lazy about using an eye product, but by keeping this in my make up bag I roll this one before applying make up and kill a few birds with one stone: moisture, massage, reducing puffiness. It’s a very very light texture though, so if you want something thicker, use an eye cream, obs. But if you want something light (and this isn’t necessarily a replacement for an eye cream, but if you’re lazy like me it is) and refreshing, and compact, this is great.
One of my favourite face masks EVER was NARS Mud Mask which they discontinued. It’s hard finding a good replacement that is none drying or irritating.
This mask is quite light for a mud mask, none irritating and feels very comfortable on the skin (even dry ones like mine).
Once this set (I left it on for 20 mins mainly cos I forgot I had it on) then washed off, my skin looked bright and glowing. A worthy replacement for my previous mud mask.
(was £12 now £6!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
This amazing little stacker contains 5 loose pigment eyeshadows in one stack. This is a shimmery set (there is also a natural one) called Metallic Warmth.
Let’s think about this – you get FIVE generously sized loose pigments for like, a quid each.
Swatched for you – very smooth, very pigmented, shimmery. The only thing for me personally with loose pigments is that I only use these on a special occasion cos if I get a loose pigment out, a child will jump on me and end up covered in fairy dust. But totally love these.
This comes in 3 shades and is a sheer glossy finished lip plumping gloss. It is very subtle, with a light peppermint. It is not painful at all and I cannot stand plumping glosses that make your lip sting. If I want to do that I’ll go and have an extra spicy fajita.
This shade is Petal Ice:
There’s not much pigment in this, an yet I kinda really like it. I haven’t worn a natural finish gloss for ages but I have found this moisturising and protective in this harsh gold weather. It makes my lips look healthy without being overly shiny, and also doesn’t stick to my hair. I like!
Looking forward to seeing what else Pixi has to offer in 2017!
Have you used anything from Pixi lately?
