Pixi Beauty Strobe & Bronze and Strobe & Sculpt will update your holiday looks (giveaway time)

Pixi Beauty Strobe & Bronze, Strobe & Sculpt, Strobe & Sculpt Brush

Want to up your beauty for the holiday occasions coming up? With holiday parties and celebrations there are more reasons to beautify yourself. Pixi Beauty is a go to brand for me, especially for party time. Not only is it affordable but it’s on point with their products. Petra knows what is going to help create the best looks. Two of those are the Strobe & Bronze palette and the Strobe & Sculpt palette. These two palettes were done in collaboration with Maryam Maquillage and they are fabulous.

Here’s a recap of the Pixi Strobe & Bronze palette that I shared before.

Pixi Strobe & Bronze (Strobe & Chisel)

I use this palette often even though bronzing isn’t a big part of my life. But I’m able to use the bronzing shades lightly. It’s the left side of the palette though that makes me enjoy it so much.

Pixi Strobe & Bronze (Strobe & Chisel)

Highline is a pinkish glow that I use as blush or over blush.

Empress may look purple in my picture but actually just has a lavender undertone that works so well with cool toned makeup.

Lex is a gorgeous gold that isn’t harsh at all. Just soft and lovely.

Apply highlighters to tops of cheekbones, bridge of nose, and cupid’s bow to light up features

City Kitty is the lightest of the bronze shades and on the warm side while Statuesque is the darkest. And 917 is a cool toned bronzer that’s midtone.

Pixi Beauty Strobe & Chisel (bronze) palette from

The three highlight and 3 bronze shades work together so well as you can top the bronze shades with the highlighters. “Bring a soft natural glow and sheer sunkissed warmth to the skin with this palette that helps add subtle dimension to your features created by Maryam of MaryamMaquillage. The highlighters give a soft glowing luminosity while the bronze shades help create natural definition.”

(available at and Target, $20)

PIXI BEAUTY STROBE & SCULPT KIT is just as beautiful but a little darker. I don’t have swatches for it since I just have one for this giveaway so hopefully my descriptions work. The Kit comes with this great Strobe & Sculpt Brush although you can buy the brush separately too.

Pixi Strobe & Sculpt Brush

The Strobe & Sculpt Brush is made of vegan synthetic fibers and is so incredibly soft. It comes with a storage pouch too ($14 separately).

Pixi Beauty Strobe & Sculpt Brush

The Strobe & Sculpt palette to me is very similar to the Strobe & Chisel/Bronze one above so it just depends on which shades appeal to you more.

Pixi Beauty Strobe & Sculpt, highlight and contour palette

On the left side of Strobe & Scuplt (Strobe & Contour) are the 3 highlight shades:

Baby Chick is a matte cream shade that Maryam recommends you use in the center of the face to lock in foundation and brighten.

Caviar Dreams is a beautiful pinky peach blush/highlight.

Honey-Bunny is another stunner with it’s peachy gold beauty.

On the right are the three bronze/sculpt shades:

Minx is a shimmery bronzer that Maryam recommends you add to the outer contour of your face to add warmth and a bronzed glow.

Bo$$ Lady and Queen are darker shades of matte bronzers with Bo$$ Lady being the cooler of the two.

IT Cosmetics’ IT’s Your Season to Give Love! Grand Collection TSV is ready for you

We always love when QVC and IT Cosmetics meet up with their magic and IT’S YOUR SEASON TO GIVE LOVE is perfect. It’s not too early to think of holiday gifts and holiday looks and that’s what IT has in store for you with this new TSV. Old favorites and new abound in this 7 piece set ($69.96).

sample, affliate links

Officially this QVC TSV is scheduled for Saturday November 9th but it’s up for presale so you can get a jump on this terrific set. No waiting or wondering if your foundation color will be in stock, no waiting and ending up on a waitlist. Buy it now (through 11/9) so you’ll be giving and receiving love.

Bye Bye Foundation Full Coverage Moisturizer™ with SPF 50+ ($39.50 value)

We’ve raved and raved about IT’S CC Cream and now it’s time to rave about this Full Coverage Moisturizer. I don’t find this to be a tinted moisturizer since it’s full coverage but it gives you the hydration you need along with SPF 50+ sunscreen and wonderful coverage. It’s great for winter since it’s so protecting as well as feeling great on your skin.

“The first-ever full coverage moisturizer from IT Cosmetics gives you the power to say “bye bye” to beauty imperfections and hello to instant complexion perfection! Infused with full-coverage pigments and SPF 50+ sunscreen, Bye Bye Foundation is formulated to give you weightless-feeling, natural-looking coverage that moves with your skin.”

Heavenly Luxe Buffing Foundation Brush and Bye Bye Foundation

Heavenly Luxe Buffing Foundation Brush

To help you apply your Bye Bye Foundation Full Coverage Moisturizer there’s the Heavenly Luxe Buffing Foundation Brush. You will find dozens of uses for this brush as well. Use it to apply the foundation evenly or use it for your skincare. However you choose to use it, those ultra plush Heavenly Luxe hairs are going to make you coo with joy.

NEW SHADE! Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment Serum (value $24)

Previously the only Lip Treatment Serum from IT was their original Je Ne Sais Quoi shade but now they’ve created a new shade that is the perfect color with the new blush. The shade is LOVE and looks like a shimmery crystal shade but it will transform your lips with color which will be different on each of us. The beauty of the Lip Treatment Serum is that you aren’t just adding color, you are nourishing your lips with essential butters and oils, plus hyaluronic filling spheres and antioxidants. Beautiful on its own and even better paired with your favorite lipstick. One of IT Cosmetics’ goals is to infuse skincare into their products and this serum is spot on with that.

Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment Serum and Superhero Mascara

Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara (value $24)

“Transform the look of your lashes! Formulated with unique Elastic Stretch Technology to wrap lashes, making them look fuller and longer.”  This old favorite is a delight to have in this collection. We all want luscious lashes and that’s what Superhero will give you – volume, length and definition. It’s my absolute favorite of all the mascaras from IT.

NEW SHADE! Bye Bye Pores Blush Poreless Finish Airbrush Brightening Blush  (value $24)

Bye Bye Pores Blush Poreless Finish Airbrush Brightening Blush

You might have seen or longed for Bye Bye Pores Blush but what you haven’t seen before is the gorgeous shade, LOVE. This is a natural looking soft pink that has a buildable finish. Start with a light hand for the softest glow or build it up for more color. That’s the beauty of this blush. It’s buildable without making you look like you have clown cheeks. Because of this finish it works for all skin tones. This is a new take on an old favorite.

NEW SHADE! Hello Cheekbones Matte Bronzer & Highlighter Contouring Duo

Hello Cheekbones Matte Bronzer & Highlighter Contouring Duo

Now that we have you blushing how about defining your look more with bronzer and highlighter? Hello Cheekbones is a new product with a matte bronzer and Love Highlighter. These two shades, used together or separately, will elevate the look of your cheekbones.

Heavenly Luxe Hello Cheekbones Contour Brush (value $48)

Not only does IT want you to have amazing cheeks and cheekbones but they’ve provided the perfect tool with the Heavenly Luxe Hello Cheekbones Contour Brush. It’s just the cutest!! Like all of the fabulous IT brushes this one is super soft with vegan bristles.

Heavenly Luxe Hello Cheekbones Contour Brush

The brush has two heads. The angled Highlight brush reaches the curves of your face applying highlighter perfectly and leaving you with a soft effect. The rounded Contour brush head helps to evenly and smoothly apply your bronzer (or even your blush) so smoothly and seamlessly that you’ll wish for more.

Whether you want this for yourself or for gifting you’ll LOVE this collection. Don’t let it pass you by. —  Marcia
