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.
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.
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.
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.”

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