Pixi by Petra Holiday Collection 2016

Last week I was invited along to see Pixi’s new Holiday collection at the St Davids Hotel in Cardiff Bay. I’ve always loved Pixi products and I haven’t had the chance to go to London recently to see what’s new so I was excited to see Amanda for a catch up and what was new for this season.

Pixi Flawless Finishing Powder Review!

I think once or twice a month I will do a review of a Pixi by Petra / Pixi Beauty review. I literally own the majority of their collection, this is due to me being a makeup artist in their Cardiff counter in Boots from 2011 – 2012 when they sadly got discontinued, but I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of working for such a loving brand. I loved their products and I still continue to purchase their makeup now! These reviews will be absolutely my own opinion, as these products are mostly repurchases of ones I had been given at my time at Pixi, or purchased after they were pulled from Boots directly from the Pixi store in Carnaby Street.

Now on to the review!

Today I will be reviewing a product that is essential for the summer, which is a translucent powder. Great for topping up makeup, absorbing oil, finishing the makeup, and helping it stay on the skin longer. This finishing powder is a little special as it has some illuminating shimmery tones in it.

Time used: 3 years.

Price: £16.50

 This powder comes with a handy sponge in a secret compartment for top ups during the day.

Pixi Beauty holiday mini review!

I was so excited to see what Petra and the gang could conjure up this Christmas and I was thrilled they brought out a mixture of things to mix and match from.

 

For me the most striking items from the collection were the eyeliner and lipgloss set, I have many many manyyy Pixi glosses and seeing they have a new formula for these I had to pick one up, as well as their iridescent iris endless silky eye pen, which I’m never disappointed by as all the colours I’ve got from the endless silly eye pen line have stayed put all day.

 

I just bought the Pixi Eye Glow Cube, and to be honest I do love the colours in the larger pallet but it would just be greedy if i bought it as I have barely used the Eye Glow Cube.

 

Review to follow for the lipglosses and eye pencil!

Pixi Beauty Redness Reducing Primer Review!

When I first saw this I was super excited to see that Pixi had released a new primer, especially since I loved their poreless primer! Redness for me is a big issue so when I paid visit to the Pixi shop this month it was at the very top of my list!

 

Price: £20.50

Time trialed; 1.5 weeks.

Pixi Beauty Makeup Remover Review!
