No trip to Target is complete without a major cosmetics aisle haul of Pixi Beauty. I love that Target has testers, and the super cute size of the new items and kits that Pixi sent us make them absolutely perfect stocking stuffers!
I am a huge, huge fan of the Pixi Beauty Shea Butter Lip Balms. I keep the Comfort Clear next to my bed, and I have one of the tinted balms in my purse at all times. I let my mom use my Ripe Raspberry when her lips felt dry, and she wouldn’t even give it back to me! The Shea Butter Lip Balm Trio ($16) includes three shades: Comfort Clear, Honey Nectar, and Ripe Raspberry. Be sure to pick up one of these shea butter and vitamin E infused lip balm trios for yourself, too.
Pixi Concealing Concentrate ($12) may look tiny, but it packs a big concealing punch! This waterproof concealer is highly pigmented so it covers all sorts of skin sins. The jar opening is small, but it keeps me from the temptation of using my finger. A concealer brush easily grabs all you need – and you don’t need much – to conceal the after-effects of all that holiday partying.
Isn’t this loose powder absolutely adorable?? The Pixi Quick Fix Powder in Translucid ($20) works for all but the darkest skin tones to finish makeup and buff away shine. The application sponge and the mirror on the top of the lid make this a fantastic way to powder your nose on the go.
Marcia raves about Pixi nail polishes and for good reason. These $8 polishes are the perfect size, not so big they go bad before you have a chance to use all the polish. They come in fabulous shades and are chip resistant so manicures and pedicures last. The 3-free polishes even have built-in UV protection to prevent discoloration. Three great shades to put in any stocking are Almond Glow, a nude with subtle pink shimmer; Crystal Champagne, a festive multi-faceted rose gold shimmer; and Nude Dazzle, a light metallic nude.
Pixi Fairy Dust Favourites ($12) is a single stack of five loose powder highlighter/eyeshadows. Each screw top lid is also the container for the color above, so it’s not something you can separate into five different gifts. No worries, the colors are complimentary and all work great together. They are beautiful eyeshadows that can be deepened with a mixing medium. Fairy Dust also makes an awesome cheek highlighter. The lighter shades give skin a beautiful glow when mixed with body lotion, and they make lips look lush when patted over lipstick. The stack contains Fairy Dust in Snow Sparkle, a glimmering white; Gold Dust, a candlelit gold-nude shimmer; Brightening Bare, a medium nude sheen; Mocha Magic, a warm tan shimmer; and Copper Sheen, a rich metallic copper.
Any one of these petite pretties will perk up a stocking…get them all for a truly sublime stocking experience! You can find them at Target or online at Pixi Beauty. – Lisa
