Testing YouTube Influencer Collab Products from PIXI Beauty!

Pixi, Review
Today we're talking all about the YouTube influencer collabs that PIXI Beauty has come out with. They're not new but definitely new to me, so if you haven't bought or looked into them, this is the perfect post for you! The first Youtuber collaboration is with itsjudytime and the Get The Look ItsEyeTime eyeshadow palette ($24 / Available at PixiBeauty.com & Shoppers Drug Mart). It contains 12 super silky shadows that are easy to blend out and wear that will give you a variety of looks that will go from day to night. My Glittery Thoughts: If you're looking for a pretty neutral eye palette, this one is it! The feel of the shadows is what I've come to know and love about PIXI products because their eyeshadows are always so creamy, smooth and very blendable. The next YouTuber collaboration is with Aspynovard and the Glow-y Powder in Rome Rose ($16 / Available at PixiBeauty.com & Shoppers Drug Mart) is one of three powders released in this collection. It's a highlighter with a velvety soft texture that gives your skin a luminous glow. The powder contains natural mineral powder which hydrates and reflects light to brighten up your complexion. My Glittery Thoughts: The last collaboration I got my hands on is with MaryamMaquillage. The Strobe & Bronze ($20 / Available at PixiBeauty.com & Shoppers Drug Mart) face palette gives your skin a soft, natural glow and sheer sunkissed warmth that adds subtle dimension to your features. The highlighters give you a glowy finish while the bronzers add natural definition. My Glittery Thoughts: What do you think of theΒ YouTube Influencer Collab Products from PIXI Beauty?!

If you’re looking for a pretty neutral eye palette, this one is it! The feel of the shadows is what I’ve come to know and love about PIXI products because their eyeshadows are always so creamy, smooth and very blendable. I really like the mix of mattes and shimmers which is essential for being able to create different eye looks. I use this palette before I go to work and if I have something planned after work is done, I can add the darker shades to amp it up.

Glow-y Powder in Rome Rose – peachy pink

My Glittery Thoughts:

This is a stunning blush shade that would compliment most skin tones. It blends onto your skin so smoothly and brightens up your face beautifully. Everyone needs a peachy pink blush like this in their collection.

Bottom Row from L-R: City Kitty – matte medium golden brown, Statuesque – matte medium cool brown, 917 – medium shimmery golden bronze

My Glittery Thoughts:

This palette has basically everything you need to bronze or contour and highlight. The powders are beautifully pigmented and you can easily build up the shades so someone like me with fair skin can wear the bronzers. The highlighters are my absolute favourite because PIXI knows how to make your skin glow and these powders don’t let me down. I wear this when I went to boost my complexion and “pretend” that summer is still here. PIXI has really knocked it out of the park with these YouTuber collaborations and if you haven’t tried any of these products out, I would highly recommend you do!

Quick Beauty Fixes from Pixi Beauty

You know when you’ve put on a bangin’ lipstick but your dry lips aren’t doing it justice? or when you’ve applied an amazing makeup look but forgot to set it and now you’ve barely got any on? or when you just need a quick colour touch up but left all of your good products at home? I’ve had my fair share of those dilemmas and if you’ve ever experienced the same, I can proudly say that now we don’t have to deal with that anymore! Pixi Beauty has got some seriously amazing and thoughtful products that are quick beauty fixes for all of those problems I mentioned and much more. You know you’re curious about these products, so let me introduce you to them!

Quick Beauty Fixes from Pixi Beauty

I was recently introduced to four really cool multitasking products from Pixi that nourish your skin, add colour to your cheeks and lips and set your makeup for a fresh, fuss-free look. They also come quite in handy when you’re dealing with a beauty dilemma.

Quick Beauty Fixes from Pixi Beauty

The Nourishing Lip Polish ($12 / 10 ml / Available at PixiBeauty.com & select Shoppers Drug Mart stores) is a luxurious lip exfoliator that renews and soothes the lips. It has a unique massage applicator that stimulates circulation to give you a healthy, plumped lip effect. The MultiBalm ($12 / Available at PixiBeauty.com & select Shoppers Drug Mart stores) is a multi-use, cream to powder formula that comes in five shades and adds a quick touch of colour to your cheeks and lips.

The Makeup Fixing Mist ($15 / 80 ml / Available at PixiBeauty.com & select Shoppers Drug Mart stores) is an all-over makeup setting spray that makes your makeup last longer. It’s formulated with rose water and green tea which hydrate and protect the skin. The Quick Fix Powder ($20 / Available at PixiBeauty.com & select Shoppers Drug Mart stores) is an invisible and lightweight powder that creates a velvety matte finish to any makeup look. You buff it on top of your makeup to set it and blend it out, or you can use it on bare skin for an airbrushed effect.

My Glittery Thoughts:

I think these products are great quick beauty fixes because they take care of the things we usually forget about and they are pretty makeup bag friendly. I cannot tell you how many times I get ready in the morning before work and put a great makeup look together and find that my makeup doesn’t look as good when I arrive compared to when I just put it on. The Quick Fix Powder is very easy to use and take with me for quick touch ups. It takes a bit to get the powder to come out at first but when it comes out, you need to blot it on the back of your hand so you don’t get too powdery of a look on your face. I like adding it to my nose and chin, where I find I get more oily, and it keeps everything in place and looking flawless. We all know that the air circulation in office’s isn’t the best for our skin and makeup and the Makeup Fixing Mist has become my new best friend. It smells amazing and gives my makeup a dewy glow that keeps me hydrated and my makeup looking great. It’s the perfect desk drawer companion for a quick touch up/refresher. I’m pretty bad when it comes to remembering to exfoliate my lips sometimes and the Nourishing Lip Polish makes it really easy because you just rub the polish into your lips with the exfoliating, massage applicator and your lips instantly look better. I prefer this over lip exfoliators that require me to apply it with my fingers because sometimes I just don’t want to get messy! Lastly, the MultiBalm is amazing because it’s very travel friendly and adds colour to multiple places and yu can even add it to your eyes for a touch of colour! The colour is very long wearing and leaves a velvety finish on your skin. Products like these are awesome for freshening up your look or when you need a quick fix. It’s important to have a set of quick beauty fix secret weapons to whip out when problems arise, am I right?

The Key to Long Lasting Summer Makeup with Pixi

Pixi, Review
The Key to Long Lasting Summer Makeup with Pixi

July is definitely the month when we start to really feel the humidity and the temperatures start to get heat warnings more often and this doesn’t bode well for our makeup. Sometimes it’s just impossible to wear a lot of makeup through a heat wave, so I turn to lightweight formulas with long lasting effects. I’ve found the key to long lasting summer makeup with Pixi and some of their newest launches for your lips and cheeks, that even my little Care Bears wanted to sneak a peek at πŸ˜‰

The Key to Long Lasting Summer Makeup with Pixi

Pixi’s new GelTint & SilkGloss is a dynamic dual-ended lip tint and and gloss in convenient tube. On one end you get a long lasting lip stain that’s hydrating and doesn’t dry your lips out and on the other side is a hydrating and nourishing gloss that contains jojoba oil and adds natural brilliance over top of the lip tint or on its own.

Price: $12 / 0.11 oz x 2 / Available at select Shoppers Drug Mart locations

From Top to Bottom: BerryTint & SweetGloss, BeachTint & FreshGloss, PinkTint & SilkGloss

The Key to Long Lasting Summer Makeup with Pixi

Create a long lasting, natural looking flush with the Sheer Cheek Gel blushes. It’s a sheer, translucent gel with a lightweight texture that doesn’t require any brushes to apply them and instantly gives your cheeks a long wearing flush of colour.

Price: $14 / 0.45 oz / Available at select Shoppers Drug Mart locations

From Top to Bottom: Rosy, Natural, Flushed

My Glittery Thoughts:

For the life of me, I can’t go without wearing long lasting makeup in the summer because as soon as the heat hits me, I’m dripping in sweat. For work, I prefer wearing a long wearing lip colour so I don’t have to constantly touch up and worry about it smearing all over my face. The lip tint is the lightest stain I’ve ever worn before and the most comfortable. It has a bit of a minty scent to it and glides on so easily and that pop of colour is to die for! I like that I can change it up and leave it as is or add the gloss on top and I don’t have to worry about how it looks throughout the day because as the gloss dries down, the stain is still there and still even. My favourite to wear is PinkTint because it offers that perfect pop of pink without being too bold. I’d love to see Pixi expand on this collection because they are fabulous! The cheek gels are another great product that I can apply with my fingers and easily blend out. If you’re pale like me, don’t be fooled by Flushed and think that it’s too dark because it actually blends out into a deeper raspberry pink that is easy for me to wear. They’re all very buildable, so if you want more colour, just add a bit more to your cheeks. But these tubes will last you a long time because only a little bit is needed to get a really pretty flush. The wear time is also nice and lasts through my 8-hour work day and what I’m sweating up a storm, it still remains in tact. These products are perfect for summer and anyone who prefers long wearing products to stand up against sweat, humidity and all of that crap summer brings with it.
