Every so often we get a chance to review a brand that isn’t a subscription box. Pixi Beauty reached out to us late last year asking if we would be interested in reviewing some products, and being fans we said yes!
This beautiful display was what was inside the box, and it features the entire #PixiPretties collection, a collab with three YouTube beauty gurus. I’m so excited to take a look at everything!
Seriously, this thing is so big I can’t get it all into one shot, so we’re going to go from left to right and swatch as we go.
The Pixi x Chloe Morello collection includes everything you need for a full face and a beautiful natural look. There is a palette containing six eyeshadows, three cheek/face products, and three darker colours to use as either liner or for your brows. To tie everything together there’s a sparkly Lip Icing as well!
First look at Chloe’s selections! Everything is safely nestled into sturdy cardboard and foam segments. The larger items lift out easily but the lipgloss took some effort to wiggle out.
Palette Chloette ($24) — The palette contains a skinny mirror which honestly isn’t very helpful, lol! But the clear cover means you can see everything easily, which is great. The pans are generous sizes and easy to move a brush over.
Lip Icing ($14) — This shade called Cake is a very sparkly copper that can be worn alone or over another colour. It smells like an orange creamsicle and contains marula oil and rosehip to help moisturize lips.
Swatches! I kind of went backwards and went right to left, with the blush shades and lip gloss on my hand. The shadows were not as pigmented as I expected, but they build really nicely and definitely have a very natural feel. The brow/liner powders are definitely the most sheer.
Next up is Dulce Candy, who collaborated on two different palettes for the collection! One is an all over face palette with nine shades that can be used on lids and cheeks. The other is a lip palette which can also be used on the cheeks as a cream blush.
The two palettes are smaller in size than the Chloette palette, but the pans are huge and easy to use.
The clear cover means it’s easy to tell which is which!
Cafe con Dulce ($24) — Hands down my favourite palette in the collection. (wait until you see the swatches!) The shades are beautifully versatile and you could easily use them anywhere as an eyeshadow, blush, highlighter, and maybe even for contouring if you don’t mind the shimmer. The formula is powder to cream, and is much more pigmented and vivid.
Dulce’s Lip Candy ($24) — The lip palette is just as fun. I really wish a lip brush had been included, as I’m not a fan of using my fingers to apply lip products. But they swatched nice and evenly, not patchy or streaky. You can use these on the cheeks as well.
Swatches of the Cafe con Dulce palette. These colours are STUNNING. The pink shades have a slight duochrome effect that flashes at certain angles. I thought that maybe these were swatching so metallic because my fingers were damp from using makeup wipes to clean them off, but even with a dry touch they really do turn into an intense cream finish. I want to marry this palette.
Swatches of the Lip Candy palette. These feel amazing, very soft and smooth. They aren’t incredibly long-lasting (and were removed easily with a makeup wipe) but they feel nice and light.
The third and final collaboration is with Weylie Hoang. Her focus is on making a dimensional eye look. It includes a small palette and a dual-ended eyeliner.
The colours are a nice mix of matte, shimmery, and frost finishes.
Dimensional Eye Creator Kit ($20) — The kit includes both the palette and the liner! The six shades are flattering and easy to work with. I love the upper right shade, which definitely swatches the most metallic/frosty. The matte shades are unfortunately a bit too warm-toned for what I reach for, but they are still a nice inclusion. This palette is probably the one I will give to my sister or a friend instead of keeping for myself. But the eyeliner is all mine!
Swatches of the palette as well as both ends of the eyeliner. The kohl liner end is soft and easy to smudge and work with, while the felt tip end was the last one standing after I used a makeup wipe on my arm. It definitely took some coaxing to remove.
Pixi continues to impress with their creativity and affordable price point. The products are always high quality and this collection was no exception. Definitely check out the new #PixiPretties collabs if you’re a fan of glowing highlighters, pretty pinks, and buttery neutrals! A big thank you to Pixi for sending along such a great collection of products to try!
