Pixi Beauty paired up with three influensers for new color collections. Marcia reviewed the beautiful sets by Chloe Morello and Weylie Hoang. Today I have the cheek and lip palettes by the beautiful blogger Dulce. She has a gorgeous website with tremendous fashion tips and great beauty advice, and her Pixi palettes are very pretty. Get them before they are gone!!samples
The Pixi + Dulce Candy Sweet Glow Palette ($24) has nine cheek powder shades that range from light champagne to dark brown contour. The colors are all gorgeous and work as blushes, bronzers, highlighters, or eyeshadows. They have tons of pigment and are buttery smooth.
It’s recommended to use your fingers and I actually agree if using these as eyeshadows. It’s easier to manipulate the color and you can really create some very cool eye looks. For cheeks, I use brushes, and they have a duochromatic effect so they give color and a glow to skin. The texture is powder to cream which makes it very easy to play with and a lot of fun.
Dulce’s Lip Candy ($24) This palette contains nine lip and cheek colors that have antioxidants and minerals to keep skin soft and hydrated.
The shades range from barely there pink to deep red. The colors are feminine and beautiful, mostly sheer but you can build them up for more tint. A few of them are downright UBER pigmented, like Beso. You can also use them on your cheeks and in fact Dulce recommends using them as a base before putting on the cheeks powders. Most of them are really too light to use as a blush, but a few – Beso, Flor, Canela, Corazon – could work. My skin didn’t work well with this as a blush – it disappeared almost as soon as I put it on, but honestly my skin eats cream blush so I wasn’t surprised. If you have normal skin it shouldn’t be a problem! I use this as a lippie palette and it’s outstanding for that purpose. With all the colors, you can do fun things like layer shades, or use a dark base and put a light shade right in the middle of the lip to create a fuller lip.
The lip glosses are very versatile, and if you love a full selection right at your fingertips – and literally your fingertips…I mean, you can use a brush but I am too impatient and just dip my fingers in – then this palette is well worth your money.
