I recently went to the newly refurbished PIXI store at Carnaby Street to see the upcoming Christmas collection. The store looks very sleek, but still with that shabby-chic feel, huge mirrors and white shelves. I love it! The Christmas collection is even better and consists of PIXI Ultimate Beauty Kit 2nd Edition*, PIXI Fairy Dust Favourites - Light Catchers* and PIXI Shea Butter Lip Balm Trio*. I still cannot decide which product is my favourite, all of them are simply gorgeous!
PIXI Ultimate Beauty Kit 2nd Edition
This ultimate kit contains 40 eye shadows, 6 highlighters and 6 cheek powders and is an ultimate “go-to” PIXI beauty palette that gives endless options for gorgeous make up looks. I was surprised how compact it is and still has so many products to choose and use. I think it's an amazing way to try out PIXI make up range - eyeshadows and blushers. I am a fan of the right-sided selection of eyeshadows for everyday looks and I like how they are a mixture of mattes and shimmers - something for everyone! The blushers are decently pigmented and you can also find highlighters lurking on the top two rows. I may not be using all these shades, but I've already found my favourties and it's nice to know I have orange blusher if I'll ever need one (pumpkin/fox costume idea for next year's Halloween?). As always, PIXI eyeshadows are pigmented, buttery and pleasure to work with - it's a fantastic beauty kit.
PIXI Fairy Dust Favourites - Light Catchers
I own a couple of Illamasqua Loose Pigments (which I am yet to review on the blog) and I like their multi-tasking abilities and the fact that I can change a simple eyeshadow with a dash of glitter. So I was very happy to learn that PIXI has prepared a travel-friendly stack of five loose pigment powders. The shades are Glimmery White, Candlelit Gold-nude Shimmer, Medium Nude Sheen, Warm Tan Shimmer and Rich Metallic Copper. This wide selection means you can easily use them as highlighters or eyeshadows to enhance your eyes and cheeks with a soft glow. I am particularly fan of Rich Metallic Copper - it's simply perfect for my blue eyes.
PIXI Shea Butter Lip Balm Trio
You cannot go wrong with this trio of lip balms in Ripe Raspberry, Honey Nectar and Comfort Clear. They feel nice and moisturising on the lips and give a hint of colour too. I think they're perfect Christmas stocking.
