When it comes to velvety color and exceptional quality, Pixi definitely delivers. Their mineral pigment is creamy, dense and highly saturated for effortless blending and buildable coverage that doesn’t quit!
The new Face Palettes ($34.00 ea) – English Rose and L.A. Angel, are trendier renditions of the classic “nude trend” that is still going strong. They contain easy to use everyday shades that are universally flattering, soft and feminine with a versatile combination of smooth mattes and vibrant shimmers.
English Rose is on the cool side of the color spectrum featuring taupe, dusty pink, lavender plum and deep charcoal brown. The larger pigments at the bottom can be used as highlighter and all of the shadows are buildable, non-creasing and radiant.
While playing around with the colors I did notice that the bright silver in the second row is a tad flaky but the chrome effect is pretty despite the fallout.
L.A. Angel is little more my style. I love the flattering gold hues, coppery garnet and sunset mattes but I wish the bottom colors were a bit more interesting (I already have enough beige in my collection).
These shades are soft, silky and long-wear with stunning color payoff and fabulous coverage. The simplicity of these palettes is a bit deceiving because the pigments brighten and accentuate much more than anticipated. The rich texture and stunning brilliance is comparable to high-end formulas.
If you want your look to last even longer, make sure to use a good base like the Pixi Eye Bright Primer. The water resistant, crease-proof formula enhances color and holds it in place all day.
Since it is freezing outside, you might want to condition and prep your pout with Pixi’s Shea Butter Lip Balm ($10.00). They are available in 4 wearable tints (3 neutrals and one bright) that soften, moisturize and soothe.
