Is it just me or are makeup minis taking over this holiday season?! If you are looking for a quick gift for stocking stuffers or that last minute secret Santa gift you said you participate in at the office then you might want to hit up the Pixi by Petra beauty section at Target! Pixi has several cute holiday releases – a palette, eyeliner set and lip set to choose from all within a comfortable $14-$24 range.
Pixi sent me the Mattelustre Lipstick Quartette to share with you so let’s look at some photos and swatches.
L to R: Bitten Rose, Honey Bare, Petal Pink, Rose Naturelle
This limited edition mini set of Pixi’s Mattelustre Lipstick formula in four natural nude, rose and pink shades offers an easy way to try out a few shades on your own without making a full-tube commitment. The formula is softening and lightweight feeling on the lips. It does a good job of sinking into the lips a bit yet feels comfortable.
In case you spot them in-store you will see they come arranged in cute gold and red holiday packaging. Once you open it up, the lipsticks themselves are quite small, and the packaging is inexpensive feeling. They almost feel like deluxe samples in a way.
Swatched L to R: Honey Bare, Petal Pink, Rose Naturelle, Bitten Rose
I definitely love that they included such easy wear-anywhere shades!
Overall, this is a cute little set that would be fun to receive for the Christmas or a gift exchange. As I felt with the YSL Rouge Pur Couture mini set I talked about earlier today I think you might be a little disappointed if you purchased online and were expecting something more substantial, (however in this case you don’t have to spend $50 to find that out!) That said, this set is handy to find out which neutral/natural shade you might like the best, so that could be a bonus. Plus did I mention Pixi by Petra is cruelty free and is free from parabens, phthalates, sulfates, fragrance and mineral oil and is gluten free? Now that is holiday cheer right there!
Have you seen the Pixi by Petra holiday sets at Target in store or online? Will you be putting any on your gifting list?
