The lovely folks over at Pixi by Petra sent me a little lovely little box with a few products for me to try out and review. And, dang, they must know me well — eyeliners and a brow palette? Right up my alley! See the full review after the jump.
I've been pretty familiar with Pixi products since I first started my Birchbox subscription back in 2010 or 2011. I had gotten one of their eyeshadow sticks and loved it. Since, I always love trying out the products they have at my local Target — namely nail polishes. Hey! Classic Jess!
These are the four items I was sent to try out.
On the left is the swatch of the Endless Silky Eye Intensify Duo (oh my, long name) in the Brown Eye Intensify. The liner is a deep matte cocoa and the highlighter is a glowing golden beige. On the right is the Blue Eye Intensify. The liner is cool slate the the highlighter is an opal-beige. On my nails is the Sweet Strawberry nail polish.
For the polish, I must say that I really love it. I rarely wear reds, but this has a slightly orange color to it that works wonderfully as a stand-alone color. The coverage and finish is fantastic and it dries relatively quickly. I accented the nails with some gold studs.
Here I am wearing the Brown Intensify eyeliner and using the Brow Powder Palette. For the brows, I used the brown that is the next-to-darkest shade. It applies nice and smoothly and is just pigmented enough to not look overdone. I lined the brows with my concealer and highlighted my brow bone with the lightest shade. The Brow palette is night and stays put. I think it's a little harder to work with a powder palette versus my go-to Anastasia of Beverly Hills Brow Pomade, but is a great alternative for days when I really like wearing lighter makeup.
As for the eyeliner, it stays put. I used a nude eyeshadow and my ELF eyeshadow primer, then lined the inner part of my eye with the highlighter. Using the dark brown, I lined the edges and blended them out with a smudge stick. Finally, I finished off the look with Milani liquid eye liner.
This is the Blue Eye Intensify liner. I love the cool slate liner. I think it's such a great alternative to my normal black liquid liner. The opal tone doesn't show up well on my skin and in photos, but I think the cool slate makes up for it. I lined with the dark tone and then used a small brush to pull the color out into a cat eye. I cleaned up the edges with some concealer and am ready to go!
Overall, I love the liners.
