Pick just 5 products from Pixi Beauty? Ooh that’s hard.

It’s Marcia’s turn to be Queen for the Day with the Beauty Spotlight Team. We’ve each chosen a brand that we love to showcase for our readers. You’ve read Never Say Die Beauty’s Too Faced picks along with Justina’s Clinique favorites. Now that it’s my turn I’m picking Pixi Beauty because I wear something from Pixi every single day.pixi-favorites-all

Pixi Beauty is in a class of its own. It’s an independent beauty company that has reasonable mass market prices with department store quality. You can buy most of their line by going to your closest Target or by ordering online through Target.com or on Pixi’s website where you’ll find even more products from them.                                                                       press samples, personal products

Choosing just 5 was a chore since I easily could have chosen a dozen but I narrowed it down as I’m a rule follower. All of my choices are so reasonably priced that your wallet will barely weigh less after picking these up.

Pixi Beauty Summer Glow palette

Pixi Beauty Summer Glow palette

Pixi by Petra has many great palettes so why did I choose the Summer Glow palette (Palette Bronzette) when summer is coming to an end? Two reasons – 1) it’s a great quality palette with eye shades and face shades and 2) it’s being discontinued so I wanted you to get in on the fact that this $28 palette is now only $14 while it lasts. With 12 shadows and liners and 3 facial products this works all year round. “Gilded bronzes, taupes & peaches for eyes + matte bronze, golden beige highlight & pink sheen for complexion.” I have gotten more use out of this Bronzette Palette than any of my Pixi Palettes. Perfect for travel and at $14 you don’t want to miss out.

Pixi Beauty Brow Powder Palette

Pixi Beauty Brow Powder Palette

This brow palette is my most used item from Pixi and I’ll soon be buying a backup. I’ve tried so many brow products and liked most but I love the Pixi Brow Powder palette. As you can see from this recent picture there are two shades that get tons of love while the others get used once in a while but those two shades are perfection for me. It’s hard for me to believe that this 6 color palette is only $12. My hair color changes every 3-4 weeks so it’s easy for me to vary the color of these powders. They are thick enough to stick around, they aren’t powdery meaning no fallout, and this removes easily with water which means less hair to lose. If I had to pick just one item of the 5 this Pixi Brow Powder Palette would be my keeper.

Pixi Multibalms are my newest love from Pixi Beauty. (Be sure you enter my giveaway to win them!) I’m a huge fan of cream products and almost always pick a cream blush over a powder blush. I’ve been wearing one every day since I received these. There’s one for every color wardrobe and one for every mood. If you twist my arm to ask my favorites I’d pick Watermelon Veil and Wild Rose. At $12 each you can have several for the price of one from a different brand. The Multibalms are great for an easy on the go lip color too so you’ll look coordinated. These are infused with aloe vera, shea butter and rose hip oil adding to my love for these.

Pixi Skintreats Nourishing Lip Polish

Pixi Skintreats Nourishing Lip Polish

Picking out just one lip product from the many wonderful ones that Pixi Beauty has was the hardest task of all. I love the shea butter lip balms, tinted brilliance balm crayons and Mattelustre lipsticks. But the product that gets used daily is the Nourishing Lip Polish. Another $12 product that is a 2-in-1 lip exfoliator and nourisher. Not only does it protect my dry lips but it has a circulation factor with the unique applicator. You massage the sweet nutrient rich formula onto your lips with the applicator. You’ll want one in every bathroom, your purse, and nightstand.

Pixi by Petra Nail Colours

Pixi by Petra Nail Colours

Nobody ever talks about Pixi’s Nail Colours and I don’t know why. They are terrific. They are 3 free and chip resistant. There are 42 shades for only $8 each. These slim bottles last for many manicures yet take up a small amount of space in my collection. Shown above are Gilded Garnet, Amethyst Amore, Fuchsia Dew and Sweet Strawberry. I’ve found some on sale at my local Target so I’m always checking for them. Like all products from Pixi they are cruelty-free. A Pixi polish is always a fun addition to my life.

While these are my favorites they are just at the top of a long list of products I recommend from Pixi Beauty. What about you? Any favorites from Pixi? Any you know you need to add ASAP?  —  Marcia

Fall Blog Hop Giveaway with Pixi Multibalms

Pixi by Petra Multibalms

Pixi by Petra Multibalms

What is a Multibalm? It’s a little bit of everything that you’re going to love. Pixi by Petra sent these for review and was kind enough to send a second batch which is the Beauty Info Zone prize for the FALL BLOG HOP GIVEAWAY. Each of the blogs involved will have their own prize to give away to a subscriber from the US or Canada. This is a completely different giveaway than any I’ve done before so be sure you read the directions at the bottom of the post.

Pixi Multibalms

Pixi Multibalms

Pixi created 5 different shades of 2-in-1 MultiBalms and they are all beautiful. Smooth and creamy, they just glide on. These are a product that you can apply on your cheeks and lips. They make pretty lip shades, you can even wear them on your eyes, but best of all they work as a wonderful cream blush. These are fragrance free which gives them a big edge in my book plus they are just $12 each which gives them a bigger edge. As someone who’d rather use a cream blush and has a big collection of them, I think these are right up there with much more expensive products. These cream to powder tubes last a long time though they will fade as time goes on, but it’s so easy to apply more and it doesn’t cake up.

There are 5 shades available: Baby Petal, Sheer Sculpt, Soft Strawberry, Watermelon Veil, and Wild Rose. There’s one for every taste and skintone but I think you need more than one!

Baby Petal is described online as “petal”. It’s the peach one in the bunch. It’s a soft inviting shade that looks wonderful with neutrals and brown family eyes. On my fair skintone it’s a peachy pink, a shade that I love.

Sheer Sculpt is described as cocoa. This can be used a a contouring shade or for those of you that like a brown tone blush, Sheer Sculpt will be perfect. This can be used on eyes too but it’s not a long lasting look for eyes. It’s great for an hour or two but then I find it creases.

Pixi Multibalm Sheer Sculpt

Soft Strawberry looks very bright in the tube and Pixi describes it as a ‘red berry’ but the word soft does apply since you determine the intensity of this. It’s a stunning color that gives you a Kool-Aid lip and cheeks that look like you came in from the cold.

Watermelon Veil may look bright in the tube and in my swatch but it’s not really. I love this cool pink and have worn it over and over. I always feel best in a pink blush and this is a lovely shade.

Wild Rose isn’t one you’d pick from my pictures. I couldn’t get the true beauty of this mauve-rose shade to show. For me though it’s the most versatile of all 5. I can wear this with anything I want. I love to lightly dab it on my lips while blending it on my cheeks. I doubt I’d have picked it out in a store but I’m beyond thrilled with it and you will be too.

All of these protect your skin so you can look beautiful and know you are putting safe ingredients on your face at the same time.  —  Marciapixi multibalms all open
