Something New: Pixi by Petra

"Makeup to Wakeup" - the philosophy behind Pixi, the newest brand I got to know because of Glamourbox!  

I believe makeup is best created by a makeup artist, and Pixi is definitely not an excemption!  Petra Strand, is a makeup artist and mother of two who really wanted to create beauty product that make you look like you had a good night's sleep!  Say AYE if you agree!!! AYE!!!!

And what's the exciting part about Pixi is that the products are made with ingredients that are beneficial to your skin!  All their makeup are also considered skincare which made me yelp a big: "Owwww????" 

I always consider makeup as "makeup", never skincare, they are still chemically laden products that needed to be washed off immediately at the end of the day!  BUT, if a makeup is said to be beneficial to your skin, why not?  It is something I am extremely looking forward to try! 

In detail ---

Flawless Beauty Primer

This has a pearlescent texture creating a dewy, glowy effect after skincare. Aside from the usual "primer" job, it has Vitamins A, E and C to help improve skin texture/condition.

Endless Silky Eye Pen
 Available in BronzeBeam, BlackNoir, BlackBlue, BlackTulip, BlackCocoa, CafeGold, DeepPlum

This liner promises to be waterproof, super-long-wear, no-smudge, no-budge and so far, after a quick swatch on the back of my hand and on the eye area, this seems promising in terms of smooth, silky-texture gliding off easily on my eye without tugging yet gives an amazing pigmentation even on one swipe!

Swatch shade: BronzeBeam

Sheer Cheek Gel in Flushed
Available in Flushed and Rosy

Flushed, as expected, is a shade that makes you look naturally "flushed".  At first glance, it gave me a scare as the shade is literally like blood!  But upon blending, it blends in to your skin leaving a nice flush of reddish pink tint.  Since this is a gel, it applies like a breeze leaving no spots or marks!

Tinted Brilliance Balm 
Available in Baby Bare, Craving Coral, Magnific Mauve, Pretty Pink, Unique Pink, 
Orchid Petal, Radiant Rose, Rosy Red and Lucent Glow

Shade: Radiant Rose
This is a twist p crayon pen so no sharpening is needed.  This particular balm won Oprah magazine's O-wards last Spring of 2013.

Overall, Pixi is a promising product worth trying!  I will definitely share more of my thoughts on the products mentioned above!  I am still on the process of testing so feel free to let me know which particular product you would like to see a review first! :)
