PixiGlow

Pixi is a brand that I have occasionally dabbled in and always been inspired by so I was excited to be invited to the launch of their new PixiGlow collection. Petra, who is the brains (and beauty), behind the line aims to create products that are multi-tasking, flaw-fixing and youth enhancing, which sounds pretty perfect to me!
The new PixiGlow collection is inspired by Disney's Tinkerbell and is designed to capture her fresh faced, glowing, timeless beauty. As much as I love Disney (I was raised on the films OK?) I am always a little cautious of brands that dive into cartoon inspired makeup. Yes, the packaging will probably be adorable, but it's the products themselves that matter and the last thing any busy woman wants is glitter fall out! Luckily Pixi's take on Disney does not disappoint and blends cute, girly packaging with effective and versatile products.

First up is the star of the collection - The Tinker Bell Fairytale Palette (£32 here).
Described as a whole face in a case this palette features 5 eye colours, a 3 colour blush mosaic, 5 lip creams and a variety of applicators. The eyeshadows are shimmery and incredibly easy to wear, while the blush is quite sheer with a beautiful glow that warms and highlights the cheeks at once.

Magic Tink Tint (£12 here)
This soft and moisturizing lip balm comes in a crayon style dispenser. On fist application the balm is clear, but it quickly turns into a gorgeous blooming pink in a few fairy seconds as it reacts with the lips' natural pH levels, so you get a personalised tint. On the swatch below the pink is very light and delicate, but on my lips it develops into a richer tint.

Catching Shadows Crayon (£12 here)
This golden cream to powder eye crayon has a lovely shimmer and would be perfect to use for highlighting the lids, as well as sparingly on the brow bone and inner tear duct.

Straight On Till Morning Liner (£9.50 here)
This lovely mossy green liner has a waterproof & long-lasting formula that helps it to stay in place all day. The gel formula is really workable, which makes it perfect for creating a smokey eye with a subtle hint of sparkle.

Fairy Dust (£10 here)
This beautiful loose powder pigment is one of my favourite products from the collection. It's super versatile as it can be used as a shadow or a highlighter on the eyes and the face. It gives a lovely, soft golden glow, which would suit all skin tones.

Pirouette Pink (£8 here)
This pink and golden glimmer polish is chip-resistant and gives a high-gloss finish. The polish applies really evenly and the below swatch shows just one coat!

Have you checked out the new PixiGlow collection? Which are your favourite products? xxx
