Hey everyone! I can’t believe we’re already in the month of February. It’s insane how fast time swoosh by! Or is it just me!
Anyways, in today’s post I just want to do a quick mention of the cruelty free products that doing a come back. While I’ve to admit that I’m not 100% clean or cruelty free but 2018 is a mark for me to put a conscious effort to make it happen with baby steps. So without further ado, let’s jump right in.Pixi by Petra is a cruelty free makeup brand that I’ve known since the beginning of my blogging days and here are products that keeps me going back.
I’ve Pixi Beauty Bronzer in the shade Summertime and it’s the most beautiful color tan for my light-medium skin toned. I’m a matte kind of girl when it comes to bronzer, so this formula is just right up my alley.
The natural mineral formula is infused with vitamin E and mica, product ingredients that will make your cheeks looking flawless and silky fresh as you wear it. Buff it where you naturally tan and you’re good to go. I really appreciate how light it is for winter use but can also be built up to be suitable for summer.The pigmentation is incredible and it on the cheek for a surprisingly long time. With their sleek and travel friendly packaging set, you’re going to fall head over heels for it! By the way, did I mentioned it smells amazing! And if you’re on the market for a subtle glow bronzer that’s not shinning then you’re going to like this set. Grab your set today!It comes with a good size Kabuki Brush like so. What is a kabuki brush anyway you might asked? The answer I got from google search is “the brush is named after the Kabuki Japanese drama theater, where, ironically, male actors wear Keshō, a very heavy makeup made of white rice powder.”
Today, however, the word “kabuki” is used to describe a variety of makeup brushes, whether they have squat or long handles, real or synthetic hair, or rounded or flat tops.The synthetic fiber brush wasn’t too dense nor to soft. It tapered on both sides for precise blending. It’s suitable for applying powder evenly over your face with thinly. You don’t have to splurge on some expensive Hakuhodo Brush USA if you don’t want to. For me, this one did an awesome job just like any kabuki brush. It’s my new favorite and I hope they’ll never stop making it!Moving on I got two Mesmerizing Mineral Palettes in the shade Mineral Contour and Copper Peach that I’ve been dying to share their color swatches for your guys.
This is a new palette I picked up from Shoppers Drug Mart the other day to add to my ever growing Pixi Beauty collection. It features six earthy tones from frosty white to the darkest charcoal grey shades eyeshadow in complementing colors. Complete with a dual-ended sponge tip brush.
All the shades are soft to the touch, it feels creamy and easy to blend. They’re also just a little powdery but I wouldn’t be overly concern about it. I noticed the pigmentation to be not very consistent especially the frosted white compares to the champagne beige. I’m not sure if I got a bad batch but here’s the color swatch up closed.
From Left to Right:
- Charcoal Grey
- Bronze Brown
- Champagne Beige – is my favorite shade of the bunch
- Light Taupe
- Cream – this shade turns out very closed to my skin tone but it’s a great color as a transition shade
- Frosted White
I did a review a few years back when I was first introduced to Pixi Beauty. So, I’m not going to go into great length but instead I’ll have the link here if you like to read more about it.This palette contains peach, bronze and russet shades, which I really enjoy as I really only wear neutral eye looks most of the time.
From Left to Right:
- Dark Bronze Shimmer
- Copper Shimmer
- Peachy Shimmer
- Matte Brown
Of the two, this has to be my favorite palette. The dark bronze and copper shades are what I use for everyday wear. They super easy to apply and blend away. I love how my makeup stay fresh all day with these creamy formulas. I’ve got only good things to say about this product and the brand.
If you haven’t tried any products from Pixi, I urge you to check out their website or head over to the nearest drugstore, because they got you covered!
I hope this post will help you kick start your search. Let me know if you guys found this useful!
