Happy Monday glamour babes! I hope everyone had a lovely spring break and wonderful Easter weekend. Spring was definitely in full bloom here in NYC and I couldn’t get enough of it! You couldn’t keep me indoors if you tried. Mother Nature has finally come out of hibernation and I had to take in earths natural beauty.
In case you were wondering as to who is Judy Travis. She is a Vlogger/Beauty Blogger on YouTube and has two popular channels-Itsjudytime and ItsMommysLife. Both focus on beauty and lifestyle. Of course she is going to do a collab with Pixi Beauty! Who would turn down that dream opportunity?! I know I wouldn’t. To collab with someone in the beauty industry is a huge deal/honor for a beauty blogger. I tip my hat to you Judy! Congrats!
The palettes are nice. I do however prefer ItsEyeTime over ItsLiptime.
I was never one for lip palettes. I never understood the purpose of them really. Yes, you can mix and match shades, wear them solo, its portable, and excellent for makeup artists, but I don’t find them functional for everyday life. I’m not trying to paint a canvas like Bob Ross, lol. I enjoy my lipstick one shade at a time, and in a tube, which I think would have been a more successful venture for Judy if the shades were sold individually rather than palette form.
ItsLipTime has twelve flattering shades that compliment all skin tones-ranging in pinky nudes, deep berries and reds.Not all of the shades are equally pigmented. I found the reds and berries to be the most pigmented from the nudes, they are much sheerer.The formula has a balmy, creamy texture making them comfortable to wear, and they provide a good amount of moisture for lips. The colors do not have long lasting wear though, about 2 to 3 hours max. I found these to be quite messy too during application. I wasn’t feeling the whole just apply with your finger thing. It most certainly is not easy. You have to create a bit of friction to warm up the hues. They are stiff and trying to build color out of the pans were somewhat time consuming, along with removing lipstick color off my finger tips. Yea, you could say I was irked by the entire process, lol. I’ll just stick with a simple tube of lipstick. That’s me wearing fierce by the way. As for ItsEyeTime?! LOVE! The neutral eye flattering palette contains twelve shades that you can play up or down effortlessly from day to night.There are four shimmer and eight matte shades. All are equally pigmented. Now, I have no problem dipping my fingertips into these gorgeous pans.The formula is super silky, has great pigmentation, they are blend-able, highly build-able, apply evenly, and are easy to apply-with or without eyeshadow brushes. The color payoff is fantastic! My lids stayed fully pigmented for 10 hours with lots of pearlized shimmer. I didn’t even reach for the primer! You can use primer. Don’t think that you can’t, lol. The shades do stand out more, especially the mattes if they seem a touch muted for your taste. I’ll tote this around anytime! Not that I need to, the staying power is pretty incredible.
Duh! I almost forgot! Both palettes come with a detached mirror for custom placement, and in the back of each palette you will find the shade names to your favorite colors.
Stay beautiful! Xo.
