Glow Up With Pixi*

Glow Up With Pixi

I have never thought of myself as a blogger who has a massive following, nor do I receive parcels every day. A lot of the products I blog about have all been gifted to me from friends or family or I have purchased them myself. When a HUGE parcel arrived at my door recently I almost died…literally!! The mailman held a white box at my doorstep with the words “Pixi By Petra” on the outside and I instantly thought “What is it, I haven’t ordered anything?”.One thing I can tell you is  that mailman made my day and receiving a parcel from PIXI BEAUTY hadn’t quite sunk in yet…

SO after the excitement almost died down(not quite yet though!) and I was ready to take a look at what was inside I burst out screaming!! I had seen this package all over youtube and Instagram. Influencers were receiving this as PR from Pixi and then there’s little old me, you know the girl who loves makeup and beauty, the girl that got this gorgeous parcel from a brand I have been wanting to work with as long as I have been blogging. If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen the pictures I took of the PR parcel itself and what was inside. In todays post I have included more about the products they sent out and swatches too…

Pixi Glow-y Gossamer Duos 

Pixi has released 2 powder highlighters with 2 shades in each. When I swatched the shades I was absolutely blown away with how pigmented and creamy they are. I don’t think I’ve ever tried any highlighters from Pixi before and these are gorgeous for summer. The Glow-y Gossamer Duos retail for £22.00 each…

Subtle Sunrise is the lighter compact out of the two. I couldn’t find a shade description for the highlighters but to me this one looks it has a really light champagne and pink toned highlight in it. If you want to go for a more rosy makeup look I think this set of shades would be perfect. I also love the name as I think the shades are quite light but when swatched you still get that awesome glow to it!! 

Delicate Dew is the deeper compact out of the two. This one looks like it would suit more tanned/deeper skin but I think with highlighters no matter what your skin tone you can make them work for you. The shades in this one look more bronzed as well, these are the kind of highlights I love as I have quite an olive skin tone too. I suppose you could also use these as eyeshadows too 😉 

From T-B the first two shades are from the Subtle Sunrise compact and the two bottom shades are from the Delicate Dew compact..

Just looking at the shades when swatched I would have to say the shades I love the look of the most is the 1st and 4th shades, just how beautiful are they….

You can pick up these compacts from the UK Pixi Beauty website HERE

Pixi Liquid Fairy Lights

When I first saw these online I absolutely loved them. I love liquid eyeshadows and anything that has some glitter to it. I love wearing liquid eyeshadows either on their own or over eyeshadow. I love to wear a liquid eyeshadow when I’m doing a different type of makeup look or makeup for an event. The Pixi Fairy Lights retail for £15.00 each and are available in five shades. These shadows are also infused with chamomile and rose to soothe and hydrate the lid upon application. As I swatched these I could feel how cooling they were as well and I love that about liquid eyeshadows. It would be lovely to see some more pops of colour in this range too, Pixi if you read this I would love a blue or a purple shadow….

Passion Light is absolutely gorgeous. This would look ideal for a copper/bronze makeup look. Passion Light looks to me like a deep bronze shade with a hint of gold to it.  You could totally wear this shade alone too. I love bronze eyeshadow shades as I feel it makes my blue eyes pop more…

Crystalline to me looks like a silver with a hint of white. I feel like this would look even better over eyeshadow that’s already been applied. I don’t find it as pigmented as Passion Light either. I have to admit I’m not a huge fan of silver/white liquid shadows but I could find a way to make it work…

Rose Gold is of course rose gold. We all know what this type of shade looks like. To me this shade is pink toned with a hint of gold. I think this would look gorgeous applied on the lids for a wedding or even a romantic eye look…

From T-B the shades are Passion Light, Crystalline, Rose Gold, Sun Ray and Bare Brilliance

SunRay to me looks like a gold shadow with a speck of green glitter running through it. I don’t know if it’s just me but when swatched you can kinda see the shift to it. It also swatched quite sheer but I think these shadows are build able and it’s probably just me swatching it horribly lol…

Lastly in the Pixi Fairy Lights range we have the shade Bare Brilliance. I can honestly say that this shadow and Passion Light have to be my most favourite, shade wise. I love these types of deeper shades and can’t wait to play around with them more…

Receiving this parcel absolutely blown me away. I had no clue PIXI would send this to me. I was so surprised, I still am. It’s crazy to think that just over 14 months ago I had no clue how to start blogging, taking photos was alien to me and I had no experience of photography, writing or even how to set up my blog. With a lot of research, hard work and determination I think I can say it’s all paying off. It just goes to show that who ever you are, no matter how big or small of a following you have if you have a dream GO FOR IT….I did 🙂 I love to write, I love to take photos and my passion for makeup and beauty has grown even more since I started. Without those of you that follow me on my socials, comment and engage even more I wouldn’t have received such an amazing parcel like this….

Thank you so much for your continued love and support…

Before I go what would you love to try in this range? Do you own any makeup from Pixi?, let me know your thoughts in the comments…
