Hello and good evening! I figured I’d stretch my Sunday out a little bit longer by doing a blog post and watching a few makeup videos, as always the weekend has been far too short for my liking :(
So, a few weeks ago I had my first foray into the world of Pixi cosmetics; the brand isn’t widely available here in Belfast so I ordered a few bits n pieces from the good old interwebs and can’t remember the last time I fell in love with a brand so quickly. I’m a total sucker for cute packaging and adore the light green shade of these little beauties – Really stands out amongst all the blacks and creams in my makeup collection!
I was well disappointed when I opened the Enery Blush - a blush/highlighter duo - cos the blush colour looks ridiculously dark, so much so that I figured maybe they’d mixed up my order and this was meant for someone else (Naomi Campbell, perhaps) … Then I swatched it and it’s actually a gorgeously natural peach shade. My faith in internet shopping was quickly restored. Phew!!
I reckon I’ll have to do a FOTD post to do the highlighter justice as it might look a bit bland in the pan but it’s the most perfect shade to highlight the cheeks and brow bone as it isn’t matte but doesn’t have the out-n-out glitter ball quality that you get with a lot of other highlighters
This little 8 shadow eye palette really jumped out at me cos it has the right colours for creating a pretty day time look or dramatic evening look. The quality is great (a definite 8 outta 10) and I’ve found that the dark brown shade can be used wet as a rather lovely liner
And last of all I treated myself to some Vitamin Lip Silk, mostly just cos it sounds so… I dunno, luxurious? Although the colour looks a bit manky in the tube this goes on sheer and just adds a nice shine to the lips. It manages to look like a subtle pretty lip gloss but is packed with vitamins A, C and E and Beeswax to keep the lips in tip top condition. Mine are pretty much beyond repair I reckon so I’ll let you know if it lives up to the promises over the next few weeks :)
So overall I’ve been very impressed by Pixi; these 3 products are all I used over the weekend. I barely left the house so couldn’t be arsed applying a full face of makeup just to walk the dogs round the park and call into the newsagents for a magazine and some crisps (Erm, yeah, I really know how to live it up on the weekend, eh?) Using these meant I looked like I'd put in a little effort
