Pixi Hello Rose! Review:

Pixi’s Hello Rose! Kit is my newest obsession glamour babes. I had a grand old time playing dress up with this little beauty over the weekend.

The three piece kit contains a glow booster, blush/highlighter duo, and LipLift Max plumper gloss.Everything you need to create a soft natural rosy glow is right here in this kit. All you have to do is throw on a coat of mascara and some concealer, and you’re good to go! This is why I am obsessed with Hello Rose! Apart from the amazing glow, It has cut down my makeup application by 15 min, usually its about a 30 min process. I have a ton of makeup, I gotta rummage for what I want, lol. And the best part about Rose? She is totally travel friendly, which is making me love her more than I already do. 

Let us look further into detail on what this threesome can do for your complexion.

The Glow Booster in Pink Pearl is a sheer pearly pink, and can be applied allover skin alone, or added to a base for a beautiful sheen. Or it can be used to accentuate features; Cheek bones, brow bones, bridge of nose, etc….Pixi’s Beauty Blush Duo in Rose Gold carries a sheer pink blush with a white gold highlighter along side of it. You can apply the blush to the apples of cheeks for a flush of color, add the highlighter for a sheer warmth of glow, or swirl them together to create a radiant pearlized finish with a subdued pop of color. 

Pixi’s LipLift Max Plumping Gloss in Sheer Rose is a Nudie Pink. Wear it alone or as a lip topper to jazz up your favorite lip color. The Lip Plumper is truly amazing. The gloss is not sticky or tacky, and gives lips a bit of oomph with a nice refreshing minty tingle that’s not uncomfortable to bare, while keeping lips hydrated throughout the day, even as it wears off. All three are very comfortable to wear and are super lightweight. Applications are a breeze. The glow booster and blush blends in evenly and easily, lasting all day through. The lip plumper doesn’t stay long on its own about 2 hours. Over lip color, I got about a 4 hour run, but my lips stayed hydrated and looked pleasantly plump.

Here I am sporting my glowing complexion as I rock the girl with no pearl earring frock, lol! It was blow dry day, and I didn’t want you boys and girls to see me in pin curls. Throw a few kittens in my bathrobe pockets and I’m the perfect depiction of the crazy lady! Just a little more put together. Hahahahaha!Pixi’s Hello Rose is available at Target and pixibeauty.com for $22. 

You’ll feel a glow of satisfaction rushing over you with this purchase.

Stay beautiful! Xo.


Pixi + Aspyn Ovard Glow-y Powder Review:

If Pixi + Aspyn Ovard’s Glow-y Powder isn’t the perfect depiction of a highlighter, then I don’t know highlighters anymore glamour babes. All three shades Aspyn created with Petra are incredibly stunning! I received all three Glow-y Powders (Rome Rose, Santorini Sunset, and London Lustre) as PR Samples along with the rest of the Pixi Pretties Collection. You would have thought a wild animal was loose in my apartment after the way I squealed with joy when this package arrived, lol. It was beautiful, and my heart is still grateful for Petra’s generosity. 

                    You can grab these at Target or PixiBeauty.com for $16, and they’re well worth the price for the size. The velvety soft powder adds a hint of glow, creating a luminous effect. Each highlighter has natural mineral powder that hydrates and reflects light to brighten your complexion. 

Rome Rose is a corally rose with gold shimmer. This shade can be worn as a blush or highlighter. I’ll be using this one more for the summer. 

Santorini Sunset is a classic champagne.London Lustre is an icy white gold.These apply like buttah!!! You know how I love to use that term in a sentence whenever I get the chance. The texture is soooooo buttery. I’m getting verklempt thinking about it, lol! Spread on as much highlighter as you like boys and girls. The finely milled (surprisingly no kickback) formula is lightweight, soft, silky smooth, buildable, and packed with pigment. Aspyn made these powders suitable for all skin tones, and they set in a lovely pearlized finish. I do enjoy that these don’t overwhelm my face with full blown sparkly bits and eye blinding shine. They give off a healthy incandescent glow, and remain that way for a solid 7 hours without becoming streaky or patchy. The hydration is there too, which I think would work nicely towards drier skin. The glow-y powders do have a faint almost to nothing soft floral (rosy) scent that lingers in the pan not on the skin. I wanted to make note of that in case some have sensitive sniffers or do not care for scents in their cosmetics.

Well done Aspyn for your successful collaboration with Pixi Beauty! I hope these will stick around for awhile.

What are your Pixi Pretty Favorites?! Aspyn Ovard’s Glow-y Powders better be one of them!

Stay beautiful! Xo.


Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse Review:

Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse ($24 for 3.38 ounces) is the stuff of dreams glamour babes. Skin care guru/blogger, Caroline Hirons collaborated with Pixi Beauty and created a unique 2 in 1 jar that contains a solid cleansing oil and luxurious cleansing cream for the ultimate fresh faced, squeaky clean complexion. Both cleansers carry a super gentle formula making it suitable for ALL skin types.

Take a look see at the skin loving ingredients Caroline formulated into each one. 

Can you feel the love?! My acne prone skin sure did, and it felt clean too!

You can use this cleanser a few ways. The first way is using the two as a tag team at night. They do compliment each other quite well, just like yin and yang. Skin must be dry when applying the cleansing oil boys and gals. I can’t stress that enough. I’ve read some reviews that it does not work because consumers used both on wet skin. Silly gooses, Caroline’s Double Cleanse goes on dry. The formula is infused with a lot of nourishing oils, and we all know oil and water do not mix. Same applies for the cleansing cream. Think of them as makeup remover wipes in a jar. So, grab yourself a dollop (about coin size) of the cleansing oil first, and begin applying it onto DRY skin in circular motions. You’ll soon start to see your makeup effectively melting away in seconds. Have a moistened wash cloth on hand, and begin removing all of the dirt and debris off your beautiful face. Pat skin dry. Now follow with a dollop of the cleansing cream and massage again in circular motions thoroughly, and remove with a moistened wash cloth. Pat skin dry. Oh my god, how good does your skin feel?! Better than good right?! It feels nice and clean I bet. Skin is soft and smooth like butta too?! I could not stop touching my face afterwards. It was so squeaky clean! The cream cleanser (step 2) can be applied in the morning on its own to keep skin hydrated and nourished throughout the day.

I do happen to only use this at night and during the day I use a faux proactive acne system that is cruelty free from a brand known as AcneFree. The combination has been working phenomenally. I’d rather leave well enough alone for the sake of clear, glowing skin.

In case you were wondering, the solid Cleansing Oil has the same lightweight, creamy balmy like texture as Pixi’s Nourishing Cleansing Balm, minus the sweet almond oil scent. The Cleansing Cream brings me back to my Pond’s cold cream days way back when. But Caroline’s version is much lighter and has better ingredients that’s beneficial for skin without the greasy residue.

Skins appearance becomes noticeably different when used over a period of time. Skin is soft, supple, hydrated, and glowing. Its a thing of beauty.

I hope Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse becomes a permanent staple in the Pixi Beauty skincare line. I have a ton of love for this jar of wholesome goodness. I’d hate to see it fly off Target shelves never to return. Oh yes, this double cleansing agent works wonders. You don’t know what you’re missing if you haven’t tried it yet.

Stay beautiful! Xo.


Pixi Beauty Sleep Cream Review:

Pleasant dreams glamour babes. As you are nestled, all snug in your beds while having visions of sugar plums dancing in your heads; Pixi’s Beauty Sleep Cream ($24) will do the rest by giving skin the most cherished gift of all, hydration! And lots of it!

Infused with 100% natural mango butter, plus oils of lavender, lemon, and bergamot. This night time nutrient rich cream not only calms and balances skin-tone, but protects, nourishes, and hydrates skin during peaceful nights of slumbering.

This Beauty Sleep Cream seriously works if your skin needs a hydration boost. My skin has been super dry lately, like Shara Desert dry. The winter weather has not been cooperating with my sensitive/oily skin, stripping away most of my natural oils; leaving my skin horribly chapped, and beyond irritated. I have tried many moisturizing creams, but nothing like this one, and I was going to purchase it until I read reviews of it being too heavy, not good for oily skin, doesn’t work etc….so I was hesitant, and decided to wait. A week later I received my Pixi PR Package, and low and behold a skin treat for me! Pixi’s Beauty Sleep Cream, Hazzaaahhhh!

For an emollient rich night cream, it is super lightweight, feather light. I was dumbstruck when dispersing this delicate, buttery soft night treatment into my hand. Huh? I thought overnight treatments are supposed to be heavy textured, submersing my skin in moisture, and clogging my pores in the process, what’s the catch? I was a little confused and baffled by this, but intrigued to take it for a trial run.

Once my skin was washed, dried, and toned for the night, I was ready to get cozy with some Beauty Sleep Cream. You don’t need much really, I used about two pumps, and my skin was completely covered. It absorbs nicely and quickly into the skin as does the scent. It has a lovely aroma of lavender with under lying notes of lemon and bergamot filtering through. I found this combination to be quite calming, relaxing, and gentle on my face after a long stressful day. The perfect nightcap in my opinion, lol. Nighty-night!

Fast forward to nine hours later…..great Odin’s Raven! my skin has been transformed! Everything I had feared from the reviews did not come to fruition; clogged pores, more breakouts, skin oiler than before, it doesn’t work. Doesn’t work?! Are you crazy!?!?! This lightweight, ultra emollient formula put the moisture back into my face. My skin is much more supple, calm, and balanced after all the wind burn I endured. I don’t use Pixi’s Beauty Sleep Cream every night before bed because of the richness it carries. Depending on the severity of dryness, I tend to apply every other night or once a week if all is quiet on the skin front. You gotta know what works best for your skin type. You know it better than anyone else does.

Have you tried Pixi’s Beauty Sleep Cream? Does your skin feel like a million bucks when you awaken sleeping beauties?! I bet it does.

Stay beautiful! Xo.
