Pixi by Petra Reflex Light Eye Reflection Shadow Palette

With specially curated colors, these eye shadow formulas are highly blendable and incredibly rich in pigment and payoff! Super silky mineral shadows in light reflective shades make it easy to create stunning looks with a few sweeps. The mix of creamy metallic colours ranging from light to dark help create a 3D glow and shimmer, making your eyes the center of attention. Swish on these gorgeous shades to brighten, define, and enliven!

Reflex Light features mineral eyeshadows in light-reflective shades – no matte shades in the bunch. The metallic colors give a 3D effect that glows and provides depth and interest to your eye look.  All of the colors are on the warm side.

The colors really show up great when swatched on a finger, so I did both finger swatches and brush swatches.  To increase the brightness of any shade, just use your finger for application.

Vanilla Glitz is a warm metallic white that leans gold – this is a terrific highlighting shade. Nude Lustre is a warm metallic tan/gold. Gold Foil is a warm gold with sparkle finish.

Pink Lustre is a warm pinky/peach metallic – another great highlighter shade. Vintage Gold is a warm metallic gold/tan that is more gold than the similar Nude Lustre. Brilliant Bronze is a warm metallic brown – one of my favorites, it has tons of depth and interest thanks to the metallic finish.

3D Peach is a warm copper frost. Auburn Blaze is a warm metallic copper that has terrific color payoff.  Copper Penny is a warm brown with a satin finish that is an excellent transition shade since this one doesn’t have much shimmer.

Antique Bronze is a warm metallic brown that swatches much lighter than it looks like it will. Chestnut Glimmer is a light warm copper metallic. Cocoa Glaze is a warm dark taupe metallic – this is the only shade that doesn’t have a super creamy texture. It has some fallout, so blend! I love it in the crease.

Overall, the Reflex Light eyeshadows are super pigmented and creamy. Actually, the shades and texture remind me of loose pigments – and I found that it is essential to pat these on first before blending. The colors are beautiful – flattering but also pretty intense and they last all day.

I mix up shimmer with my matte shadows so I am reaching for my Reflex Light Palette all the time. It is a terrific palette filled with eye-brightening shades that won’t fade on you.  I can’t wait to see how Marcia likes the Natural Palette!  – Lisa
