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 Ultimate Beauty Kit 3rd Edition Review:

On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me, Pixi’s Ultimate Beauty Kit 3rd Edition!Ha! I bet you thought it was going to be a partridge in a pear tree, didn’t you glamour babes?! Nope, this travel companion is a far better gift than a bird nesting in a fruit tree. We can’t stick those two items in a bag now, can we? Didn’t think so, lol. What comes inside the $34 Pixie Perfect Edit Face Kit????

Only forty eye shadow shades, two highlighters, four cheek powders, one bronzer, and one contour powder. That’ll keep ya hands busy for awhile, lol. Since there is so much to cover in Petra’s all in one kit, I thought it would be better to swatch and break everything down for you boys and gals in segments. Sound good?! Fabulous!

When opening Pixi’s Ultimate Beauty Kit, there are two shadow palettes. One to the left and one to the right. Each palette holds twenty shades that come in an array of hues ranging in rich browns, warm coppers, deep plums, dark blacks, nudes, soft whites, pinks, and lavenders, with textures of satin, matte, and shimmer finishes. The possibilities are endless with these eye shadows!
FYI: a few colors can be used as highlighters too (wink). Whether you want to create bright, petal soft eyes during the day, or a sinfully, dark pair of bedroom eyes for date night. The look you’re trying to go for is right here in this very kit. No more eye shadow palettes for me, I have enough shades to get me through until next Christmas, lol. Some eye shadows have greater opacity than others as you can see in the swatches, light vs. dark. All are finely milled, silky smooth, comfortable to wear, apply evenly and easily, have long lasting wear, and produce very little debris when applying on the lids. Anyone who adores eye shadow will fall madly in love with these gorgeous shades.

Now, smack dab in the middle are my ultimate beauty faves; Highlighters, blushes, bronzer, and contour!

Don’t get me wrong. I loved the eye shadows in this collection too, I just love to glimmer all the more, and Pixi has been doing a great job at that lately. Glistening brow bones, a sun kissed glow, and rosy pinched cheeks are exactly what I need to liven up my pasty winter complexion. All three are highly pigmented, opaque, have lovely pearlized shimmer, are finely milled (use the Pixi Palette as a crumb catcher if need be, lol.), buildable, and create a streak free finish, providing long lasting wear. I haven’t really had a chance to dive into the contour powder (matte cocoa), but by the looks of it, the Pixi Palette Rosette Kit has the same shade, which enhances features softly and elegantly. Getting pretty and polished has never been easier.

Thus concludes Pixi’s Holiday Collection for 2016. I hope you enjoyed the sleigh ride.

Stay beautiful! Xo.

Pixi Palette Rosette Review:

Pixi’s Palette Rosette Rosy Radiance Kit ($28) has everything to get you flawless for the holidays in five glamour babes! Or in my case, a bit longer than five. I’m going to blame it on the three coats of mascara I apply, lol! Eight Eye shadow Shades, three brow shades, three face shades, and a duo applicator is what makes up this kit. Talk about a great deal for $28, am I right?!Glow au naturale with some all over glow, add blush to the apples of your cheeks for a flush of color, dress it up or play it down for a smoooookin eye look. Use the brow hues, highlight powder and enhancing contour (can be used as a bronzer too!) to create a fierce set of brows and compliment your features in the process, or do it all! There’s no wrong way to go about it when using Pixi’s Rosette Palette. That is why I love it so! The Ultra thin sleek design makes this totally travel friendly too. Slip it into any bag and you’re good to go! Lets take a closer peek at these wonderful slab of colors, shall we?!

Highlights- pink, gold, and white.
Day Lid and Night Lid- champagne gold and deep plum
Eye Contours- shimmery taupe, olive, and chocolate matte
Brow Hues- blonde, brunette, black
All over glow- shimmering baby pink, Cheek blush- shimmering rosy pink, Enhancing contour- medium fawn.The formula is great. Non streaky, lightweight, all have silky smooth textures, are finely milled (minimal kickback), blendable, and nicely pigmented. Except for the brow hues which are buildable, and highlighters. Those three illuminators may not show up on darker skin tones as they would on fairer complexions. If you’re not a fan of shimmer not to worry. The highlighters, blush, all over glow, and shadows contain no glitter, they’re more pearlized, almost all of Petra’s creations are. The fall shades of rose, cream, and taupe carried in this palette has really brought warmth to my complexion, depth to my eyes, and has noticeably defined my features softly when contouring.

Pixi’s Palette Rosette Kit is definitely going to be a keeper for me. I’m going to be naughty and not share mine, but a few more will be purchased as Christmas gifts for friends and family making me partially nice….. right? Lol. Get the gift that keeps on giving at pixibeauty and target.com

Stay beautiful! Xo.


Pixi by Petra Beauty Event at the Bouley Botanical:

The Pixi Beauty Event was a night to remember and that I will never forget glamour babes. I was tickled pink when I received an invitation via email from Leilani Pitpipan, PR and associate manager of Pixi Beauty.

I have never in my life been invited to a beauty event, and I was beyond ecstatic to go. Kinda like Cinderella when her fairy god mother transforms her into a magical princess so she can attend the ball and meet her Prince Charming, lol.

This beautiful soirée was held at the Bouley Botanical in the heart of Tribeca in NYC. If you have never been to Bouley Botanical, you got to go and see it with your own eyes, its simply gorgeous. I have passed this building a million times, but I never have been inside of it. Chef David Bouley created the versatile venue, a living events space designed to excite all five senses, dedicated to the celebration of Private, Social, Wedding and Business Events. Think of Botanical as a blank canvas that can be themed through color LED lighting, media wall, state-of-the-art sound, video and decoration to fit the mood of your event. Located in TriBeCa at 281 Church Street (corner of White), Botanical envelopes your guests in an environ of pure ingredients, featuring 400+ edible species of plants growing in vertical window gardens, supported by the largest bio-dynamic green house in New England.
Bouley Botanical comfortably accommodates parties from 8 to 75 people for seated private dining events and up to 100 people for receptions (info found at David Bouley.com). Here are some photos I found via google images to give you an idea of what the space looks like. Pretty, right?!

The event was small nothing huge, which I don’t mind, I prefer a more intimate setting. Its easier to get to know one beauty blogger/vlogger from another. I’m guessing about 30 or 40 people attended. I didn’t count heads, I probably would have looked crazy to some. What is that redhead doing all the way over there? Why is she head counting all of us? Is there a roll call after the night is over?

I was fashionably late by an hour, not to worry, I didn’t turn into a pumpkin. I was greeted into the building by a sweet hostess, and as I walked up the stairs was greeted by another lovely girl who asked for my name, and the fun began! Right as I walked into the venue there was a table that had a beautiful display of Pixi’s new Limited Edition Holiday Collection (Endless Silky Eye Pen Kit, Ultimate Beauty Palette, and Fairy Dust Favorites), and from there, more tables were set with Pixi Beauty products including both skincare and makeup.

I was in heaven and I was able to swatch and test until my heart was content.

There was a makeup station to the far left corner if anyone was interested in getting a touch up by the makeup artist and needed some glam beauty advice. Oh! And there was a DIY satchel station, where I was able to create my own scented satchel (rose petals and lavender), how creative and Cumbaya! I loved every minute of it.

Of course I make one and drop it everywhere, lol! At least Leilani was kind enough to help me clean up my mess, thank you! She was super sweet through the whole event, and was helpful when answering all of my questions. There was a little bar in the back of the room that served lovely flavored waters, sparkling wine, and regular wine if ones thirst needed to be quenched. The atmosphere had a relaxing, mellow vibe, and the room was well lit due to the big open windows, soft lighting, and candle lighting at night. Good music was playing in the background as tapas were being served, they were delightful and light. Beef, fish, veggies, mini tacos, crispy light crackers served with cream and caviar on top, I felt quite fancy. Chocolates were served after all of the dishes were sent out. I thought that added a nice touch and satisfied my sweet tooth after everything I consumed. I walked around, observed, swatched, met a lot of nice people, and I got to meet the stunning Petra, founder and creator of Pixi Beauty. When I say she is stunning, she truly is stunning. She has a warm and loving personality as does her son Felix who attended and introduced himself to me. Before I was ready to leave she asked if I would like to take a photo with her in the photo booth they had set up in the back, and I excitedly said yes! Would you turn down an opportunity like that down? I don’t think so! She’s like a makeup celebrity!

How gorgeous is she in this pic we took together?! I want to be Petra when I grow up! As I made my way out, I received my goodie bag from Leilani, and she was more than humble when I requested to try two products from the table that weren’t in my bag.

In my two extra goodies went (Glowtion Day dew and 24K Eye Elixir), I said my goodbyes with a grateful heart, and I walked out floating like I was on cloud nine. I can’t thank Petra and Leilani enough for holding this beauty event in NYC and letting me attend. This truly was a wonderful dream come true for me, I feel grateful and blessed. Are you a fan of Pixi Products? Which product makes you glow from the inside and out?

Stay beautiful! Xo.
