Pixi Beauty palettes you’ll love and a palette giveaway

Once upon a time Target decided to upgrade their cosmetic department and added 3 new brands. I remember how people were skeptical that higher priced items could be successful in Target which was known for lines like L’Oreal, CoverGirl, Maybelline, etc. Those three lines were Jemma Kidd, Napoleon, and Pixi Beauty. Guess which one stuck and is one of the most popular and loved brands at Target? Yup, you guessed it, our favorite Pixi Beauty.

Pixi bridges the gap between department store and drugstore with products that have the quality of high end yet the prices of mass market.

Favorites of mine from Pixi include these two palettes from “It’s Judy Time” from a collaboration with a variety of beauty bloggers.

It’s Eye Time is my favorite but then again when do I ever not love eyeshadow, especially Pixi Beauty?? This beauty has 12 very silky eyeshadows with day and night shades.

Pixi Beauty It’s Eye Time palette

The shades in this palette are mostly neutral shaes with nothing too bright. One dozen eyeshadows will give you dozens of combinations for looks you’ll love. Pixi’s website has some swatches that will show you just how beautiful this is.

Snowflake – satin almost metallic creamy gold

Bubbly – beautiful satin metallic gold

Its Mommy Time  – subtle tan with peach undertones and the eeniest bit of shimmer

Good Morning  –  matte light brown

Brick –  a tan with power – this has some orange to it to make it liven up

Honey Bear – just what you expect your favorite stuffed animal brown to be (matte)

Tu Tu – matte milk chocolate

Getaway –  beautiful metallic copper

Ping – satin metallic bronze

Dark Chocolate – matte dark brown

Aww Snap  –  matte Hershey chocolate

Night Night –  blue black with teeny shimmer

To compliment It’s Eye Time there’s also It’s Lip Time, another fabulous palette with 12 shades but this time it’s lipstick.

A collection of lip crèmes in a range of wearable, super-flattering colours mixed by Judy. These pigmented lip colours are hydrating and easy to apply just with your finger. Wear solo, mix or layer for endless shade options.

Pixi Beauty It’s Lip Time

Ta-da  – the lightest shade, a neutral pink

Peaches  –  peachy nude

Julianna Bear  –  mauve nude

Milk Chocolate  –  guess!!

Keira Bear  –  similar to Peaches but it look a tad cooler

Miya Bear  – light brown with peach undertone

B did it  – beautiful mauve (I think this is going to be a favorite shade)

Red lip palette perfection: The New Reds Lip Palette by Decorte

Decorte The New Reds

I raved about the Decorte The New Nudes Lip Palette at the beginning of summer and I’ve been wearing it all season.  The colors are gorgeous and the wear is fantastic!  Today I am once again professing my profound admiration for this Japanese brand found exclusively at Saks.  They have incredible lip palettes, and I am in a mega swoon over The New Reds Lip Palette ($95).

The New Nudes Lip Palette transformed me into a lip palette fan, and now I am moving on to The New Reds Lip Palette, fall-friendly shades that have the same pluses as The New Nudes.  The shades in The New Reds range from medium pink to deep reddish-brown. They are all gorgeous, wearable, and mixable colors. They look great alone or in combination with one another. The formula has great pigmentation and lasting power. The finish is semi-matte and leave lips nicely hydrated. I’m not a huge fan of the brushes that are included in the palette, so I would recommend using your own. Otherwise, just like The New Nudes, I think this is a perfect palette just with deeper shades.

Saks says, “EXCLUSIVELY AT SAKS FIFTH AVENUE. It’s a paradox: Hyper-color and condition in one. Double-pigment technology provides extreme tonal color while helping soften delicate skin with botanicals for a most comfortable, just-matte finish. Long-wearing. Non-drying. Made in Japan.”

The New Reds is a fantastic combination of brighter and deeper shades that is truly perfect for transitioning into fall.  I love mixing and matching the shades together, and sometimes mix them with The New Nudes to create ombre looks.

The New Reds Lip Palette is expensive but boy, it’s wonderful.  The formula is simply elegant, the pigmentation is excellent, and the colors are fantastic.  If this fits into your budget I highly recommend it.  In fact, all the color products I’ve tried so far from Decorte are some of the best I’ve come across – take a trip to Saks just to check them out!! – Lisa
