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.

Let your beauty stans out with Stans Out Makeup Blending Sponge #giveaway time

Stans Out Makeup Blending Sponge

Calling all beauties who use foundation. It’s time for you to learn about a unique type of makeup blending sponge. The brand is STANS OUT and it’s unlike any of the sponges I’ve seen and used before.


Stans Out Makeup Blending Sponge

To start, the shape is different. Second it’s larger than most. Last the material of the sponge, Polyeurathane Foam, is going to make you realize that you don’t need an egg shaped sponge. Instead you’re going to want a more porous sponge with different sides to accommodate all the sides and angles of your face. Your face isn’t flat so why should your sponge be flat.

Stans Out Makeup Blending Sponge

Stans Out is incredibly soft. It’s designed to work with the warmth of your skin to reach optimal softness. And water is NOT required for this tool. You can use it with water of course but you don’t need to do so.

Stans Out Makeup Blending Sponge

Let’s take a look at all the edges. You can easily use it on larger areas like your cheeks and forehead and then turn it to fit easily around your nose and under your eyes.

Rounded Side: Use the large rounded side for pressing and rolling foundation and other cream products into the large areas of the face such as cheeks, forehead, and chin.

Triangular Side: Use the triangular side for applying concealer and powder in the under-eye area.

Flat Side: Use the flat side for perfecting and sculpting your contour under the cheekbones, along the nose, and along the jawline.

Stans Out Makeup Blending Sponge

This diamond shape sponge is easy to clean but you do have to be careful about not stretching it out or you’ll tear it. I watched the site’s short video and followed the quick easy steps.

1. With warm water and a mild bar of soap, gently work the sponge into a lather. Do not twist or pinch to avoid snags and tears.

2. Rinse and squeeze out excess water. Repeat steps if needed until water runs clear.

3. Let air dry.

You can even use this immediately after you’ve washed it as it dries in a jiffy. This is a great addition to your beauty routine and one you’ll be thrilled with for flawless application.  —  Marcia

GIVEAWAY INFORMATION: Stans Out gets a huge shout out from us for offering a giveaway for 5 US readers. This $20 sponge (available at Amazon and on StansOutBeauty with free shipping) will be a delight if you are a Beauty Info Zone email subscriber. The giveaway runs through 4/11/19 at 11:59 pm EDT. Be sure you follow the rules for your chance to win.

OOPs giveaway

Why is this an OOPS giveaway? Because I never picked the winners for this way back in September. OOPS. I was cleaning and came across the two boxes and couldn’t remember why they were sitting. So you now have a new chance to win. Read the directions below and enter. I promise to pick this time! – Marcia

I was delightfully surprised to receive the September Boxycharm box early this month. That’s rare for them. But no matter when it comes I love opening the box and being surprised to see the value in it.

September 2018 Boxycharm

Since I own just about everything in the box or have reasons I don’t need these the above picture is Giveaway Box 1.

The best item in Boxycharm is the Pretty Vulgar Nightingale eyeshadow palette ($35). I own it and while I don’t use it often I did when I first bought it. Pretty Vulgar shadows get mixed reviews but I enjoy them.

Pretty Vulgar Nightingale Eyeshadow Palette

This is a neutral palette (it’s my personal one you see above, not the prize one). There are matte shades, satin shades, and glittery shades. Plus the three bottom colors are great as eyeliners. I use either Nocturnal or Pillow Fight (top) as base shades, Break Free is a shimmery white that looks good pressed on with your finger to take the colors from day to night. Darkside is a satin cool brown, Hide & Seek a matte caramel, Clutch is a shimmery golden brown and Flip Out is a matte milk chocolate. Eye Spy is my personal favorite since it’s a beautiful cool brown with some shimmer while Silver Spoon is lightly shimmered charcoal. Liners are brown, gray, and black.

girlactik Skin Glow in Moonlight

I was excited to see this girlactik Skin Glow ($26). I think the colors are beautiful but it has a fragrance that to me is old ladyish. I smelled this often when my mom lived in a senior citizen apartment, actually it smells like the original Dove soap. I wish it didn’t have the fragrance but someone is going to love this. Macy’s says this is a cream highlighter. “Skin Glow gleams and adds a hint of dewy glam to your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose and your Cupid’s bow.”

Lorac Pro Matte Lip Color and Pretty Vulgar My Lips are Sealed

Boxycharm sent out the Lorac Matte Lip Color in Aubergine ($19) this month and last month they sent the Pretty Vulgar. I think the Pretty Vulgar My Lips Are Sealed in Secret Sabotage, ($24) a metallic nude, is a perfect match for the look you can create with the palette and girlactik Moonglow so I added it into the giveaway.

Alamar Cosmetics Ojitos Brush Set and Luscious Cosmetics Angel Eyes Primer

The last two items in the box (and giveaway) are a 3 piece brush set from Alamar Cosmetics ($18) and Luscious Angel Eyes Primer ($14). The primer is a dark nude so you can see it on your skin but it’s going to work great for the eyeshadow palette. The brush set also is going to work great with the palette since it contains a flat brush for lining, a midsize eyeshadow brush and a fluffy blender brush.

I think this is one of the best coordinated boxes from Boxycharm that I’ve seen. Everything works well together and the value is definitely there. Without the extra lip color it’s a $112 value.

The second giveaway box contains items I’ve been saving from previous Boxycharm packages and now’s the perfect time for a giveaway!

Giveaway Box 2

This is lip heaven for someone. 5 lip products and 2 eye products (I forgot one in the main picture).

lip products from Jonteblu. IT Cosmetics, girlactik, Tarte

If you are a lip color lover this second box is the one you’re going to want. The value is similar to the whole Boxycharm ($128).

Jontblu makes 20 shades of lip liners for just $5 each. This is how they are described “Master any desired lip color and produce long-wearing staying power with Jontéblu Lip Liner Pencil. The creamy, highly pigmented formula glides on effortlessly. Can be used for flawless lip contouring, worn alone, or as a long-lasting base for any lip color.”

IT Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment Serum in Your Perfect Pink ($24). “Experience the benefits of your best-selling Je Ne Sais Quoi Lip Treatment balm—now in a lightweight lip-softening serum! Developed with plastic surgeons, Je Ne Sais Quoi Hydrating Color Awakening Lip Treatment Serum starts its life as your hydrating lip treatment and is infused with pure color pigments that flush to your perfect pink. Infused with essential butters and oils, plus hyaluronic filling spheres and antioxidants, it’s perfect to wear on bare lips or under your favorite lip color to lock in moisture for your most beautiful smile!”

girlactik Matte Lip Paint in Posh ($23) “Apply this richly pigmented lip paint onto your lips and within one minute it will dry down to a beautiful matte color that will be noticeably dramatic without the dryness or flaking. Applies smoothly, doesn’t crack, feels lightweight.”

girlactik Posh Matte Lip Paint (amazon image)

Macy’s has a gwp when you spend $30 on girlactik there.

Tarte Tarteist Lip Paint in Pillowtalk ($20) “Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint is a quick dry, full coverage, transfer-proof liquid lipstick with a comfortflex formula that moves with your lips without drying out, cracking or feathering.” Pilllowtalk is lighter than the swatch, it’s more nude than that makes it appear.

Tarteist Pillowtalk (amazon image)

Stowaway Creme Lipstick Trio

Stowaway Creme Lipstick Trio

The 5th lip item is actually 3 in 1. It’s a set of Stowaway mini lipstick, Creme Lipstick Trio. The collection contains Cranberry, Raspberry and Muted Plums creamy mini lipsticks. Individually these lipsticks are $9 each and come in 8 shades. “Our highly pigmented, long-wearing cream lipstick delivers smooth color that works as hard as you do. Full of nourishing ingredients that keep your lips hydrated even on the longest day. Our favorite part? It’s small enough to go where you go and one swipe will do with this super opaque color.”

POP Beauty Insta-Eye Palette and Pur Cosmetics On Point liquid eyeliner

The rest of Giveaway Box 2 will enhance your eyes. I forgot to include the Pop Beauty Insta-Eye Palette ($10) in the main picture. It’s called Insta-Contour and contains 4 Mineral shadows. “These harmonizing hues make it easy-breezy to bring out the best in your unique eyes! Colour-rich mineral pigments blend beautifully, effortlessly creating an array of 3D eye popping effects in an instant!”

Pop Beauty Insta-Eye Palette in Insta-Contour (

Pur Cosmetics makes excellent liquid eyeliners and the giveaway contains On Point Liquid Eyeliner in VIP ($19). “Get a bold, dramatic wing that is always on point. The fine and flexible felt tip delivers thin to thick lines with ease without smudging, creasing or fading. It goes on smoothly without skipping or pulling and is quick to dry. This ultra-matte liquid liner is enriched with Lash Rejuvenation Complex and Passion Flower Oil to prevent premature lash fallout and provides skin with needed moisture without causing the formula to smudge or run. Also, it’s ocular tested and safe for sensitive eyes.” This is a matte black liner.

Whew! That took me a long time to write up. But it won’t take you long to enter. Use the Rafflecopter to enter this giveaway that’s open through 12/5/18 at 11:59 p.m. eastern time. Two requirements and the rest are extras: you must be an email subscriber and you must comment. Tada! Tweet every day too for more chances to win. Good luck and be beautiful always  —  Marcia

We’ve got raves for the Wunder2 Perfect Selfie Finishing Powders

Both Marcia and Lisa have been excited about the Wunder2 cosmetics that we’ve been using and today we have two more products that we think you are going to need to make your cosmetic life a little more finished. PERFECT SELFIE HD PHOTO FINISHING POWDER is available in two shades so one is surely going to want to live with you. Both Translucent and Bronzing Veil contain High-Resolution Powder Technology and both give your face the smoothness that you desire.

samples, some affiliate links


Wunder2 Translucent Perfect Selfie HD Photo Finishing Powder

While this is called a perfect selfie powder I have to confess that I never take a selfie. As a matter of fact I hide from cameras. But I still want a perfect finish when I do my makeup and that’s the job of Wunder2 Translucent Perfect Selfie HD Photo Finishing Powder. All of us can use this powder whether or not you take selfies.

Wunder2 Translucent Perfect Selfie HD Photo Finishing Powder

What you do need it for is a wonderful finishing powder that will help to eliminate the look of pores, fine lines, and imperfections. I was unable to get a swatch picture since this is totally translucent. If I swatched really hard I saw the white powder but that’s not how you use this powder.

Wunder2 Translucent Perfect Selfie HD Photo Finishing Powder

Use either a brush like Wunder2’s kabuki or a kabuki or fluffy brush you own. Buff it on your face as the last step in your cosmetic application.

Wunder2 Kabuki Brush

The mattifying effect you’ll have on your face will provide a soft focus that makes your face look flawless. “A combination of specially treated silicone and nylon eliminates the appearance of pores, wrinkles and shine whilst promoting an elastic-like effect so the skin is able to expand and contract with facial movements without the powder setting into fine lines, creating a photo perfect finish.” This powder is a keeper and at $22 it will be your friend for a long long time.


I love bronzers because they are perfect finishing touch – they really warm up my skin and help make me look healthy, even on those days when I just want to crawl right back into bed. I typically reach for cream bronzers though because as I have gotten older I’ve found that powder bronzers are too dry for me. They tend to look fake – they sit on top of my skin, settle into my pores, look cakey…just not good. However, I am very happy to report that my Wunder2 Perfect Selfie Bronzing Veil was a whole different experience and has me believing in powder bronzers again.

Wunder2 Perfect Selfie HD Photo Finishing Powder Bronzing Veil

Wunder2 Perfect Selfie HD Photo Finishing Powder Bronzing Veil

The color is a reddish brown that looks like it might not be for everyone but I found the shade to be very natural and quite buildable. My skin tone is neutral and between fair and medium and it worked great. If your skin is darker than tan it won’t be dark enough for you and if you are very fair it may be too dark.

Wunder2 Perfect Selfie HD Photo Finishing Powder Bronzing Veil

Wunder2 Perfect Selfie HD Photo Finishing Powder Bronzing Veil

The powder itself is soft and really fabulous. It melds into skin, really making pores disappear.  The Bronzing Veil gives my skin a gorgeous healthy glow that is truly stunning – this is my bronzer of the summer!! I sweep it on my cheekbones, the bridge of my nose, my chin, and my forehead and I am good to go. Bronzing Veil is a winner and is definitely going on my list of best products of 2018 – it absolutely gets me selfie ready.


Who wouldn’t want the great Wunder2 Kabuki Brush to use with your powders and bronzers? According to Wonder2 here are the highlights of this $9.95 wonder brush:

Wunder2 Kabuki Brush


  • Face brush: Perfect for Make Up Application On-the-go.
  • Ultra-soft Synthetic Hair Make Up Brush.
  • Powder Brush: Domed Shaped Head Perfect for Diffusing and Buffing Powders into the Skin.
  • Densely Packed Bristles Sweep a Fine, Even Dusting of Powder onto the Face. Ideal to Use with PERFECT SELFIE HD Photo Finishing Powder.

If you haven’t had the pleasure of using the Wunder2 cosmetic line these powders are a great place to start. Some CVS stores carry Wunder2 and they are easily found on Amazon, Ulta, and the Wunder2 website.
