My first introduction to the PIXI Beauty brand was their glow tonic a few years back. I’m sure its a product you will have heard of, as there is such a hype around it. I’m a huge fan, and have since purchased their rose tonic which I use as part of my skincare routine every day.
Last week a gorgeous parcel was delivered to me, completely unexpected, I opened it up to find the most beautifully packaged PIXI Beauty gift box, complete with two eyeshadow palettes, the Reflex Light and the Natural Beauty palette.
Firstly, I can’t ignore how beautiful they look. The soft jade green casing is divine and the rose pink makes for dressing table goals, but its the products inside that wowed me. Palettes are one of my favourite beauty investments due to how perfect they are for creating a full look with just one purchase. I love how they allow you to discover new colour combinations, introduce new finishes and layer different tones changing an everyday look into an evening finish.
The PIXI Eye Reflections Shadow Palette combines 12 mineral eyeshadows, in a range of finishes from silky mattes, to luxurious shimmers. In an eyeshadow palette I usually look for something that is highly pigmented, long lasting, but also easy to blend and I’ve found the PIXI palettes to provide all of these things.
I was immediately drawn to the shade Vanilla Glitz, I found this to be the perfect base shade and it compliments my skin tone well. Day to day I keep my eyeshadow very natural, sometimes only using a base shade, but for an evening look, I like to blend warm tones, including browns and oranges into a natural smokey finish. Although being highly pigmented, I’ve found the PIXI shadows to be perfectly buildable and found not so much need for a primer first. For a bronze smokey look I went for Nude Lustre, Antique Bronze and Cocoa Glaze, which looked amazing paired together. Extremely easy to blend, the finish didn’t look muddy at all and lasted all night. I’m also obsessed with the names of the shades, Auburn Blaze, Petal and Bronze Gleam being some of my favourite.
Overall I cannot fault these palettes. I’d compare them to the likes of Huda Beauty and Mac, but great value for money versions, with 12 wearable shades in each one, and the perfect mix of light and dark shades.
