I have only recently started to really dabble in Pixi products, and of course my first stop was their skincare range. Would I be a real beauty blogger if I didn’t try and love their Glow Tonic? And of course Caroline Hirons’ Double Cleanse has barely left my bathroom since I started using it.
But the Pixi makeup range is an area I have really only recently started to explore…! Pixi Beauty love a good collaboration so I thought I would focus on a few products that they have recently launched alongside some rather big names on the internet – Maryam Maquillage and Aspyn Ovard. Highlighters, glowy blushers and a spot of bronzing (I don’t really do contour!) are just my thing so these powders are the perfect solution to getting glowy and sun kissed skin and the quality and finish of them all is just beautiful.
First up are the three Glow-y Powders from Pixi + Aspynovard. They are natural mineral powders so sit really subtly and lightly on the skin and give a hint of glow and soft sheen. They instantly brighten and enliven your complexion and have only very fine shimmery flecks running through the powder. Like I said there are three shades available – London Lustre (an icy champagne), Rome Rose (light golden pink) and Santorini Sunset (pale-peach). London Lustre is very cool and frosty so looked a little harsh on my skin tone but would look fabulous, and really stand out, on a lighter complexion. Rome Rose would suit a darker complexion or works well as a shimmery blush colour for me. The real winner here though is Santorini Sunset. Not only does it have the best name but is the perfect highlighter for my skin. Its warm golden peachy finish is so pretty and just makes my complexion GLOW! I love it worn alone and gently swept along my cheekbones, temple and down my nose, or paired with a matte blush to give an added lustre to my makeup.
The other two products are powder palettes from Pixi + Maryam Maquillage. I love a good palette so I got really excited to see these. The Glow & Bronze and the Highlight & Contour palettes both contain three highlighters and then either three bronzers or three contour shades. These palettes have been designed and put together to get you strobing and sculpting seamlessly and I love the fact you have a range of colours so can pick and choose and decide with ones best complement your skin tone. The dark shades in the contour palette are mainly matte to help you define without adding any sparkle, whilst the bronzing powders in the Bronzing palette are a mix of matte and shimmery so you can contour or just add a sun kissed glow. The highlighters are lovely and very similar quality and feel to the Aspyn Ovard Glow-y Powders. They are soft and luminous and you don’t need to apply a lot to catch the light. Some are quite yellow-based and others are more rosy or golden so there is a selection to play with. I would say not be put off by what they look like in the pan as once I swept them on my face I was converted. The tiniest stroke of powder really adds a pretty sheen or a more liberal sweep with give you that enviable, instagram-makeup glow. The bronzers warmed up my complexion perfectly without being too shiny or shimmery, but as for the contour shades, I stayed clear of those as chiselling and contouring isn’t really my thing!
