Getting a glow with Pixi Glow-y Powder

Pixi Glowy PowderThe days have been dreary but my skin hasn’t!  Pixi has a wonderful powder highlighter created by the gorgeous lifestyle blogger, Aspyn Ovard, called Glow-y ($18). Pixi recently sent all three shades to test – two are all over highlighters, and one is specifically for cheeks. Here they are!Pixi Glowy Highlighter and Cheek PowderPixi Glowy Powder Cheek Powder

London Lustre:  This one is best for lighter skin tones. It’s a luminous soft champagne that gives a beautifully soft glow to cheeks, forehead, and chin. I also like to thin out my nose by using a darker contour shade on the sides, then smoothing this highlighter down the center of the bridge. Pixi London Lustre

Santorini Sunset:  Ahhhh….this one makes me long for a strappy little dress and long summer days! I can’t wait to brush this all over my arms and chest for a soft shimmery glow. The gold champagne is perfect for medium skin tones. Pixi Santorini Sunset

Rome Rose: Don’t be fooled by this one…it looks very bright, but it actually applies quite sheer then can be built up. It’s perfect for those days that you want a hint of glowy color, not full on blush. I know I will definitely use this all the time in the summer when I have a slightly deeper skin tone. It’s a really fabulous golden pink that should work for all skin tones.Pixi Rome Rose 2

The glow they give is actually quite soft – I swatched them pretty thick so you could fully see them. But actually they blend in beautifully and give a luminous, glow from within effect. The texture is like butter…so smooth and soft. It’s not the least bit powdery, so it actually seems to hydrate skin as it provides that pretty glow.

Overall, I really like these soft, beautiful, glowy powder highlighters. The pans are huge so I can’t imagine ever running out! You can find the Glow-y Powders and Pixi Beauty online and at Target stores.  – Lisa

  1. That Rome Rose is gorgeous, but how does it wear. Can it last an 8 hour day?


  2. NORA GRAHE says:

    These are all so gorgeous! I love Pixi products! My favorite is the Glow! Wow, these are so awesome!

  3. Alexis, great question. I would say they last a good 5 hours. After that, a quick reapplication brings that glow right back.

  4. Thanks for answering the question about wear time. Love Pixi products. Was at Target earlier this week but the shelves were empty ?. Need to head back this week or find another place that sells Pixi!
