As promised in last weeks blog post, I wanted to give you a full run down of the fabulous Pixi Fairy Lights and the new loves in my life, the Gossamer Duos. Pixi Beauty has been featuring quite heavily within my make up and skincare regimes lately and whilst some products have been with me for several years, others are new releases and new into my life. I’m extremely lucky to work so closely with one of brands that I absolutely love and it does mean that I get to try the new products as soon as they hit the shelves. When I was shown the new Pixi Fairy Lights, you can imagine just how excited I was about these incredible liquid glitter shadows.
In five shades, the Pixi Fairy Lights promise a show stopping colour whilst the chamomile and rose infused formulation nourish the lid. From sparkling silver to burnt copper, each shade is very wearable and can be used for a dramatic lid or to add a touch of glimmer to the lid, inner corner or lower lash line.
- Crystalline – iridescent silver diamond
- Sun Ray – yellow gold
- Rose Gold – shimmery pink gold
- Bare Brilliance – pale champagne rose
- Passion Light – rich copper bronze
Now of course there have been other liquid glitter eyeshadows released on the market, namely Stila, which I believe were the first brand to do such a shadow. To compare them would be quite difficult because in their own way, they are both very special. The Pixi Fairy Lights shadows perform beautifully. They glide on and the applicator gives precision application. They can be used as a sheer veil of shimmer, or built up to to an intense shock of metallic colour. The darker two shades are more difficult to build up an even layer of colour and do streak but it’s not a huge issue. They are comfortable to wear, easy to remove and the infused formula leaves the lids feeling soft and supple with no scratchy dryness from wearing a heavily glittered shadow. Crystalline and Bare Brilliance are the two shades that I have been reaching for the most, and I find them so versatile in what you can do with them.
For an incredible luminescence and a bright complexion the Pixi Glow-y Gossamer Duos are simply perfect. Two complementary shades within one compact, that can be used both wet and dry, and as a highlight or subtle all over glow. The powder is so silky, just like gossamer, and feels weightless on the skin. A cream based powder that diffuses easily across the skin, without settling into pores and brings a subtle touch of radiance to the high points of your face. It’s a truly beautiful highlighter and all four shades across the two palettes look gorgeous on my medium skin tone.
The two palette shades are Subtle Sunrise which contains a pale yellow gold and a golden rose, and Delicate Dew which holds a coral golden rose and a silver rose. All of the shades are subtle but can pack a punch if built up. I’m absolutely enamored with them both.
