Hello my beautiful people
I don't know you but I am all over blogs, social medias, magazines and catalogues to discover the new AW16 and Christmas collections.
One of the brand that really did it right this year has to be Pixi by Petra.
Few weeks ago I was invited to a press beauty event to browse the new releases and I had a major fan girl moment when I was introduced to Amanda Bell (Pixi's Make up and Artisitc Director) and skincare guru Caroline Hirons, I mean, could it get any better?
Yes, it actually did, once I started discovering, trying, swatching all the beautiful things that were showcased.
Pixi is a independent brand that has seen its popularity going sky high in the past few years thanks to excellent quality products with fair prices....eehm Glow Tonic anybody? Yes, that's it.
The new collection sees some kit at an incredibly good price that are a really good idea if you want to try more things.
Look at that....
This Endless Silky Eye pen Kit is only £18 for 5 pencils!
I am a big fan of the shade Oyster Glow, a champagne shimmery shade to use on lower lashline, cupid bow or under the eyebrows as an highlighter.
Oh and then look at that, The Ultimate Beauty Kit 3rd Edition.
Would you believe this mega massive super eyeshadows (40!!!!)/blushers/highlighter palette is only £28?
I keep thinking this could be a perfect Christmas present for the make up obsessed friend. Or for myself.
Yes, definitely for myself.
Another juicy palette I was shown (and kindly gifted) was the is the Palette Rosette.
A nice selection of rose, taupe and natural shades, both matte and shimmer shadows, and those contour powders that we like so much.
The shadows are incredibly pigmented and buttery, they remind me of the Make Up Geek shadows or the Anastasia Beverly Hills ones.
What was my fave?
Here we go...the Fairy Dust Favourites.
Those pigments people, those pigments...
The stack is only £12 and is available in two version, the Matte Classics and the Metallic Warmth.
Cover me in the Metallics please!!
They are so intense and the powders are fine and blendable.
Regarding the skincare selection, this is what I am pretty sure you will all want to buy.
The Best Of Bright is a selection of travel sizes of Pixi's best seller and most iconic products: The Glow Mud Cleanser, The Glow Tonic and the Glow Mud Mask.
If you haven't tried these products this is a good change to do it, considering the kit will cost you only £20.
What I am definitely buying are those Lash Nourishing Make Up Remover.
I am constantly looking for something that can remove all the make up without giving me the most horrendous puffy eyes the morning after. I trust the aloe vera will help me in this matter.
I am so glad we have a Pixi counter in M&S in Manchester but you can shop the full range here, where you can get 10% off the first order if you sign to Pixi's newsletter.
Now, let me order my pigments and eye make up remover!
So is there anything in particular that caught your eyes?
