There was excitement at my house when Pixi sent this Palette Bronzette Face Palette. As pretty as it is in this picture, it’s better in person. This is a limited edition ($28) that Pixi says will “Bring out your inner glow & add a summery sheen to your favourite features with this must-have palette!”. How right they are. Everything you need for a summer face is packaged together in one well priced palette.
There are twelve eyeshadows divided into four sections: eyeliner shades, crease shades, eyelid shades and highlighter shades. The combinations are untold.
The Eyeliner shades are taupe, dark brown and charcoal. I’ve used these as crease shades even though they are labeled eyeliner shades.
The Crease shades are my favorites in this palette. They aren’t really too dark so they look just as good on the lid for me as they do in the crease. These are all satiny with a touch of shimmer within.
The Eyelid shadows are definitely on the light side, a sponge tip applicator picks up more tint than a brush does so that probably wasn’t a good choice for me to use. The peach shade is the most vibrant and is a little too warm for my cool complexion but the other two work great for me.
I love the Highlight shades and I’m so happy that they are included in this palette. To have three of these makes it even more exciting. Each one gives a hint of color while highlighting to match your shadow selections.
There’s more to this palette than eyes though. There’s also a beautiful blush, a highlighter, and a bronzer. See what I mean about it being everything you need?
A warm matte bronzer that’s easy to wear. No glitter, no shimmer, glides on, lasts well. It’s a universal shade.
This Highlighter/Contour shade is lightly shimmered but not the kind of shimmer that looks inappropriate. Everyone is talking about contouring nowadays and in this palette you have that with both a bronzer and this shade. I like to take a big fluffy brush and highlight with this. It makes me feel a little glamorous.
This beautiful Cheek Glow aka blush is a flattering warm pink and the perfect complement to this palette.
I’m still not done. Pixi Beauty also sent LipLift Ice which is a lip plumper ($14) that I’m sure I’m addicted to. In the package this is a light pink as the name, Petal Ice, would infer. But once on your lips it’s transparent.
