Pixi by Petra Lip Lift Max in Petal Ice

*Press Sample 

This is a clear lip plumper/ lip gloss. Although it appears to have a tint, it’s completely sheer like a clear lip gloss. Applies to a tingly minty sensation. I did not notice much plumping, but in honesty my lips are plump already, so I will not be able to validate the claim. Applies well and hydrates.

   
          

Pixi By Petra Palette Bronzette Summer Glow From The Pixi Spring 2015 Collection

*Press Sample 

This is a super convenient palette with 12 eyeshadows, one bronzer, highlighter and a blush along with an included dual ended sponge applicator.  

The eyeshadows are categorized into a group of 3 as Eyeliners, Crease Shadows, Eyelid Hues and Highlights. These can definitely be mixed and matched but the sorting works as a quick guideline for those who have not yet perfected the art of eye makeup, think me. 





The first swatch shows the Bronzer-Highlighter-Blush.



The next set of swatches are the eyeshadows shown clockwise from top to bottom. 











OVERALL :  Sold online at Pixibeauty.com and instore at Target, this multi use palette retails for $28 USD. I am not the biggest fan of the eyeshadow brush that comes with it, but I always use mine anyways so it’s not a deal breaker for me at all. I have always loved the PixiBeauty face palettes and the color payoff is amazing. Highly pigmented, this sleek-multipurpose makeup magic palette is worth a buy.

It opens like a Tri-Fold book, with the first left holding 20 eyeshadows. Center holds 6 Each of Cheek blushes and Cheek highlighters. The final Tab has the next 20 eyeshadows.

Swatches are from Left To Right and moving Top to Bottom on the EyeShadow Palettes. I skipped the cheek palette swatches to the last. That is, shown are Page Tab 1 and 3.

OVERALL : Amazing !!! Excelled color payoff. Colors very finely milled and pigmented. The quality of blushes do remind of NARS. I would highly recommended this to all beauty lovers. Great for everyday use or travel. Retails at $34 USD. Available online at Pixi.com, currently at HALF OFF FOR $17 USD or In stores at Target.

Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in Coral Crush

I got this at Target and I have not seen it sold elsewhere so I’m a bit unsure of its availability. The color is called “Coral Crush”, this seemed to be the most subtle and yet Summer apt color for me.
Applies really well, soft and buttery. You can feel the Shea butter and it instantly hydrates the lips. I won’t say it’s flavored because I’m trying to lick my lips and I get no taste (yup, I did that to put in the post 😕)

Doesn’t last too long though, I guess it’s nothing out of character for a lip balm.

OVERALL: A nice tinted color and very moisturizing, although you will need to reapply after a bit. Can be well used as a base under a lipstick. Comes in a “twist from the bottom” packaging and 4g/ .141oz retails at $8. So what do you think about it, please do let me know!
