Pixi Wakeup Wisteria Nail Polish Review & Photos

Pixi Wakeup Wisteria Nail Polish

Pixi Wakeup Wisteria Nail Polish is cruelty free, and the post today is showing you the a beautiful purple creme that is a cool medium lilac.  I used 2 coats for the photos below, and I added a top coat. I had absolutely no issues with the application of the Pixi Wakeup Wisteria. The shine is really beautiful, even if you don’t use a top coat, but I highly recommend you use one. 

Pixi Wakup Wisteria was launched this past summer (of 2013), and I will still continue to wear this into the fall on the east coast.

What I love about the Pixi Beauty Balm:

Pixi Beauty Balms are nice chubby Balm in stick form, allowing one to quickly get a beautiful swatch of color on your lips.

The Balm is very soft, and extremely hydrating. I love that this minty-flavor Balm leaves a nice stain of color, even after the gloss sheen has faded. It’s interesting that each of the colors will give your lips your own “unique” shade of pink! After the balm wears off, lips are left tinted with a color and intensity that depends on the pH level of your lips! I love the packaging with the sharper built right in! It’s a simple twist-up that does not require you to sharpen it.

The Tinted Brilliance Balm comes in a variety of colors in addition to Baby Bare;  the other colors, which you should definitely check out, are: Magnific Mauve, Craving Coral, Pretty Pink, Radiant Rose, Rosy Red, and Bitten Berry.

Pixi Beauty Fake Awake Kit Review, Photos, Swatches

Pixi Beauty Fake Awake Kit

The Pixi Beauty Fake Awake Kit is designed by Petra Strand, the creator of Pixi Beauty, who is also a makeup artist and a mum!  Pixi Beauty assures us that “although Pixi Beauty is not normally about faking it, sometimes we all need a little help!”  As a mother, I definitely need help, so the Pixi Beauty Fake Awake Kit helped me to try to fake being more awake than I felt! However, anyone who wakes up and feels like they need to look more rested…and they can’t go back to sleep…will love the Kit.

The Fake Awake Kit is available online at Pixi Beauty in the US ($28.00),  Pixi Beauty in the UK (£19.00) and at Target.

What’s in the Pixi Beauty Fake Awake Kit?

Pull the ribbon on the Kit, and the drawer will slide out.
Pixi Beauty
Here are the eight products in the Pixi Beauty Fake Awake Kit, which is very travel-friendly:
two concealers (0.03 oz each)- use separately, or combine the two to make a new color that appropriate for your skin tone. I used the lightest color and it worked very well to cover up my dark circles.
one cream highlighter (0.03 oz) – can be used anywhere you want to highlight; for example, your cheek bones, or make your lips look fuller by highlighting your cupid’s bow
one brightening cream (0.03 oz each)- “to give your eyes new energy.” This was very bright on my skin, but I’m very fair skinned.
One nude setting powder (0.06 oz) – to set concealer.
one peachy cheek and eye awakening powder (0.11 oz) had some pretty little glimmer to it

There is one pale pink lip gloss (0.10 oz)
And, one strawberry red lip and cheek stain (0.10 oz)
Pixi Beauty
Both the lip gloss and the lip stain were not too sticky. You’ll get a nice shine to lips! Some swatches in different lighting–No flash. The pale pink lip gloss has very pretty sparkles in it and stayed on my lips until I had something to drink. The stain stayed longer, as it really did “stain” my lips and left color on my lips.

I am fair skinned, so the sheer colors worked perfectly on my skin tone. It did brighten my face! The only con I could come up with is that there is only one shade for Pixi Beauty Fake Awake Kit so it won’t work for everyone.

Pixi Beauty Fake Awake Kit is great anytime, but I do love the advertising now that Pixi Beauty Fake Awake Kit will make you look, “Awake in an instant this Holiday Season!”

Pixi Beauty: Pretty Eye Perfection

Today I have a review of the Limited Edition Pixi Beauty Palette: Pretty Eye Perfection. This cruelty free Palette contains twelve eye shades.

Pixi Beauty claims: These universally flattering, easy to wear, silky & blendable hues will transform your lids into radiant perfection.

Pixi Beauty Website and Twitter

Ingredients:

Mica, Magnesium Stearate, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Dimethicone, Polybutene, Isopropyl Myristate, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Phenoxyethanol, Tocopheryl Acetate. May Contain: [+/- Polyethylene Terephthalate, Polyurethane-11, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Black Iron Oxide (CI 77499), Yellow Iron Oxide (CI 77492), Red Iron Oxide (CI 77491), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Ultramarines (CI 77007), Yellow 5 Lake (CI 19140)].

Contains Vitamin E to protects the skin

Mica provides dense natural pigment

Pretty Eye Perfection comes in a simple, but very attractive, cardboard package. That’s in line with Pixi’s philosophy to use minimum packaging that can be recycled so waste is minimized. 

Here is the Pixi Beauty Pretty Eye Perfection Palette: Pixi Beauty

After lifting off the lid, there is a plastic cover to protect the eye shadows.

I have numbered the eye shadows, as Pixi does not have any names for the colors.

These first four shadows blew my mind in terms of color intensity and softness. SO amazingly pigmented and really soft.

#1 is a dark forest green with some gold shimmer

#2 is a deep aubergine with some red shimmer

#3 is a blue with gold shimmer

#4 is a copper gold shimmer

 

#5 is a  vanilla shimmer

#6 is a taupe brown shimmer

#7 is a bright lilac with shimmer

#8 is a matte in a chocolate brown color

 

#9 is a metallic bronze

#10 is a pink shimmer

#11 is a lilac with gold shimmer

#12 is a pink shimmer

The last section I swatched a second time, since I had a hard time seeing a difference between the colors #10 and #12. To my eye, they look very similar, even in the pan. Here are new swatches of the colors #9-12, taken with a flash.

The pans are small (5.52g/0.192oz)

My thoughts of the Pixi Beauty Pretty Eye Perfection Palette:

All of the colors were incredibly pigmented and they were very soft when applying to my eyes! With the exception of the colors #10 and #12, which in my palette, were so similar, I love that there  there were, as advertised, a variety of colors for “Luminous Lids,” and that they were also silky and blendable. Although the size of the shadow pans are small, I think it’s still a great little Palette. At the time of this post, this limited edition Palette is available at the Pixi Beauty Website. You may find it at your local Target store, but unlikely as it is a limited edition..
