Glow Tonic, $15 – $29 – Previously only available online, Pixi Beauty launched a travel-friendly size for the first time in the US inside Target stores. This pint-sized tonic packs a punch with 5% Glycolic acid which exfoliates, firms and tightens the skin, yet is gentle enough for all skin types. Here’s the kicker: Glow Tonic has aloe vera and ginseng to nourish, and not only does she look sweet – she smells sweet too! I would describe the whole experience like I’ve taken a shot of sweet nectar, so I’ve been rotating it into my skincare routine over the past couple of months which makes for a nice face-treat at the end of the day – and who’s face doesn’t need a little treat, right? I have quite a few potions in my skincare arsenal so while I didn’t experience drastic skin changes, I didn’t experience anything negative either. If you are sensitive to smell you may want stroll down Target’s aisles to take a whiff of it for yourself, but if your face loves the sweets then this just might be the treat you’re looking for – glow baby, glow!
Mattelustre Lipstick, $12 – It’s fall, so now is the time to get out the matte lipsticks that will take us through winter! Pixi Beauty’s version is matte with a hint of sheen, hence the “demi-matte” description from the brand, and although I knew this going in I thought I would be experiencing a little more matte. The wear time for me is about 3 hours before the color begins to fade, and the inside of the lips begin to wear first for me. Plum Berry is not as dark as it looks in the tube so I think most complexions will feel comfortable wearing it, and I love the soft berry stain it leaves behind. Pure Fuchsia is an incredibly bold color, yet not completely opaque so if you like opaque lipsticks you will have to build this one up. I kind of felt this shade was a little drying on the lips, but not by much. The stain on the lips is a vibrant pink when all is said and done. The overall look on the lips is a soft satin finish that delivers a punch of color that is buildable. The addition of peptides, hyaluronic acid, and vitamins C & E smooth the lips, so with the added benefits so you can achieve that “almost matte” look these might be something you want to take a peek at next time you’re in Target.
Correction Concentrate and Concealing Concentrate, $12 each. I’m always looking for ways to correct and brighten my under eyes, because it definitely makes a difference in the overall look of my makeup. These two creamy pots of corrector & concealers contain rosehip and vitamins A, C, and E to regenerate the under eye area while doing their duty. Correction Concentrate in Brightening Peach is meant to color correct darkness and give an overall brightening under the eyes. The shade itself is great for my light complexion and it does brighten it up a bit, but I have to layer it in my darkest areas on the inner corners. Concealing Concentrate in Adaptable Beige can be used on top of the Correction Concentrate to conceal further. I also experimented using this on dark spots and blemishes on my face. The formula is waterproof which is excellent for under the eye area, however, I also had to build up this one to try to conceal at least under the eyes. Due to my oily skin type and under eye wrinkles I was afraid these would crease on me, and I’m bummed to report they did. The application was creamy and lightweight, so perhaps if you have more normal to dry skin and you don’t need to cover up as much they would work for you! Oh, and kind of a bummer, but both products are only offered in the above shades, so if you have a darker skintone unfortunately these are not going to work for you.
Shape and Shadow Natural Contour Powder, $20 – Oooh yes! The new contour powder from Pixi is my favorite of this new releases bunch. The shade is just right – not too warm and not too cool, and it is buildable too which makes it easy to work with on my light skin, but I think those with a slightly darker skintone could get use out of it as well. Unlike some matte contour powders I’ve experienced lately when the brush hits the pan powder does not fly everywhere, which makes it easy to work with! The powder lasted on my oily skin all day and did not change colors, which was a bonus. I think this one is a winner, and I love that price tag too.
Endless Brow Gel Pen, $11 Let’s end things on a good and a not so good note here. I’m in the mood for the good first, so let’s jump right in! Endless Brow Gel Pen – she’s a good one! I tried out the shade medium which is a nice “neutral ash brown” shade as described by Pixi, and that’s exactly how it looks on my brows. I like the soft formula to fill in, although because of that soft formula it is not a super individual hair-defining brow product because the tip gets dull fast. Fortunately you can sharpen it to keep the tip pointy (I’m so glad it is not a twist-up!). It lasts all day and fills in the gaps that I need it to and the shade is perfect! If your brows are darker you can choose Deep which is a neutral cocoa gray or if you have lighter brows go for Light which is a neutral light taupe.
Cat Eye Ink, $14 – Chiseled felt-tip eyeliners have never been my forte, and unfortunately this one didn’t do it for me. Although the concept is a good one – the tip and the marker-like application is meant to give you a flawless cat-eye I am not coordinated enough to work with these type of eyeliners. The tip is firm so it didn’t feel comfortable that close to my lashline and due to the beginning stages of crepeness my eyelids are gravitating towards as I age, it didn’t apply smoothly across the lid. I also deal with dry eyes (which causes excessive watering) so if there was a bit of tearing before the liner was dry then it bled all over the lids. Which could be a good look for Halloween, but not one I was going for. 😉 The two positive notes – it is nice and black, buildable and once it is dry it does last all day! So, if you are one who loves to work with marker-like eyeliners then give this one a shot and let me know what you think!
