Pixi is a brand that I rave about regularly on my blog and YouTube, and their new launches for this Autumn are set to bring about even more lusting, but I thought I’d introduce you to a few of my favourites. As always the packaging is absolutely on point, this time with some rose gold metallic touches, but it’s what’s inside that really gets my heart racing!
Firstly, there is finally a mascara with those little silk fibres in it, that actually works to give you super fluttery pumped up lashes, without the fibres all flaking into your eye!! I was wary of this when I first tried it having had bad experiences with other brands, but the Pixi Lengthy Fiber mascara gives you all the volume, without the irritation. The silk fibres look like your real lashes, but with twice the volume this really is like false eyelashes in a bottle!
I would never have chosen Pixi as a top choice for lipsticks, until I tried the new Mattelustre lipsticks. Not only are the colours exactly what I’ve been looking for for my Summer-going-on-Autumn lip, but the formula is beyond perfection. Although giving a demi-matte finish, the lipsticks apply like a balm, and lips immediately feel moisturised. For a lipstick that feels so good, the wear is surprisingly good, with hours going by before I need to touch up. Fortified with peptides, hyaluronic acid and vitamins, the lips look fuller and feel smoother from just the very first application.
Another newbie is their Hydrating Milky Mist, which is a godsend for those with sensitive skin. An über soothing mist which hydrates and calms the skin, it’s perfect if you suffer from dryness or sensitivity. With ingredients such as black oat, linoleic acid and provitamin A, this mist is the ideal ‘first step’ in your beauty routine to bring moisture to the first layer of skin before you apply serums or makeup.
The 24k Eye Elixir is another special product. Not only as it has tiny particles of gold within it but because the results are almost instantaneous. With a cooling rollerball applicator, puffy eyes are given a gentle head start towards de-puffing, and circulation is boosted around the eye area as you massage it in. The formula itself is infused with anti-aging ingredients which work to refresh eyes and also prevent signs of fatigue, and long term use helps to repair the delicate skin around the eyes and plump up any fine lines, thanks to the collagen and peptides within the formula.
I’d buy the Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist based purely on the packaging because it’s so darn beautiful! The mist is so pleasurable to apply, it feels gorgeous on the skin and has an incredible fragrance thanks to the rose water and green tea infused formula. It keeps your makeup from budging, melting, or settling into any fine lines or pores and you can apply before or after your makeup (or both!) to set and create a luminous, flawless finish. My only quibble with it is that is sprays quite harshly, in that I mean sometimes my face can become a little wet, so instead of spraying directly onto my face, I mist into a cloud and walk into it. Problem solved.
One more exciting launch from Pixi is their skincare range, which I am still currently trialling. Including face masks, exfoliating pads, cleansers and night creams, the range, as you can imagine, looks good, smells good, and, on first impressions, does good too, so I can’t wait to give you a full review once I’ve tested the products out for a little longer!
