I love makeup! It’s the same way with my 15 year old daughter. She actually wants to be a Beauty Guru on YouTube, which I think is great! We just have to get her a video camera first.
When we received the PixiGlow makeup, we both got very excited! I’m not one who likes pictures of myself, but with her, she doesn’t mind at all.
Here’s a little information about the PixiGlow company;
Like many of today’s women, Petra Strand is busy with family, community and work. As founder of Pixi cosmetics, and a mother of two, she knows firsthand how women can be consumed with their many responsibilities. On a quest to recapture her own sense of whimsy, Petra was inspired by Disney’s Tinker Bell to create a new line of makeup to make women feel as fresh and ageless, and even magical, as the famous fairy. Available now at Target and PixiBeauty.com, the PixiGlow collection captures Tinker Bell’s timeless charm with products that help women rekindle their own glow.
To help women discover their own Tinker Bell, Pixi has created a series of online activities over the coming months. Already active on both Facebook and Twitter, Pixi will give fans enhanced access to the brand through online events including contests and parties featuring special prizes and guest bloggers who will share tips and ideas. Fans are also invited to engage with PixiGlow on Pinterest, the social networking site that provides users with a virtual pinboard to organize and share their favorite things online.
“By calling to mind the timeless beauty of Tinker Bell and wonder of Disney, the PixiGlow line is designed to help women conjure up their own sense of fantasy. I understand how busy their lives are, which is why we’ve made the palette and other products both easy to work with and fun to play with,” said Petra Strand, found of Pixi. “The result is a naturally radiant look that reflects Tink’s own classic, fresh beauty.”
I love how PixiGlow is a more of a natural look. I am not one for bright colors and having makeup just covering everything. I think natural beauty is a wonderful thing!
That’s one of many reasons why I love PixiGlow. It has shimmer and shine in all the right places.
I am ADDICTED to the PixiGlow Fairy Face Palette. My daughter and I are always fighting over it.
As you can see it has just about everything for your eyes, lips and face. My favorite colors are the top left and the second to the bottom left. These two make for a beautiful combination!
If you were to look at our Fairy Face Palette you can see that those are the most used!
A whole face in a case – 5 eye colours, 3-colour blush palette, 5 lip creams + duo eye applicator, blush brush, duo lip applicator.
What it is formulated to do:
Get lost in your own reflection with the help of this little Tink-trinket of all your favorite hues. Un-dull & delight with a few swishes for eyes, cheeks and lips, creating a glowing mirror image & a flawless fairy face. Baked pigments create a true twinkle on the eye & a faultless magic flash on the skin. Pair with a sweet lip dew for a perfected, Pixi-pretty Tinker Bell treat. This palette is certainly a delight as easy as a fairy flight!
One of the products I would love to try is the Complexion line. The Flawless Beauty Primer looks pretty awesome! If it’s anything like the products my daughter, Alysia and I tried, there’s no doubt we’d love this too!
Take a look at all of the Complexion makeup that PixiGlow has to offer.
We also received the Catching Shadows Crayon
Light-catching eyeshadow pen for lovely, luminous lids.
What it is formulated to do:
Dance with the light & catch those shadows with this beaming cream-to-powder eye crayon. Light reflecting pigments play with the shade, defining and highlighting, bringing out the natural beauty in eyes like never before. This glow-enhancer will transport you all the way to Neverland in the wink of a fairy wing!
What I love about this is that it goes on so smoothly. You just sweep it over your eye lids and it really brings out the beauty in your eyes and opens them up.
We also received Fairy Dust, which is an eye shadow that loosely and effortlessly goes onto your eye lids.
We use this to just give our color a little lift and add just a bit of “Fairy Dust” to finish off our look.
Elevate & transform your eye in a few fairy seconds with this glimmering dust. Loose pigments add a lit-up high shine finish to lids, reminding you what wishes are truly made of! Let’s go on an eye-twinkling journey with Tinker Bell – who ever said fairies don’t exist?
Next we received the Straight On Till Morning Liner. I am crazy for eye liner and it ALWAYS has to be black! I do love this eye liner from PixiGlow. It stands up to the test for sure. It stays on without smudging and going all over the place and it definitely doesn’t give you raccoon eyes! It goes on nice and smoothly and dark! I hate having to go over my eye liner so many times to make sure it is as dark as it needs to be. This one goes on flawlessly.
Intense pencil liner for travels that take you Straight on till Morning. This waterproof & long-lasting formula gives a spark of starlight to your gaze – enchanting lash line with deep hue & pure peek-a-boo glimmer. Gel formula flutters onto lids effortlessly, creating a fairytale framing effect!
Then of course we had to try some lip tint, and I must say I do love this one too! It’s called Magic Tink Tint.
The Magic Tink Tint goes on lightly so it gives your lips more of a natural look and brings out the natural color of your lips. It has moisturizers in it so your lips feel silky smooth and it gives your lips just the right shine.
I love this tint! I do not like wearing lipstick AT ALL!!! So I normally just wear chapstick. But with the Magic Tink Tint I can wear a nice tint to bring out my lips. Absolutely <3
Super-moisturizing tinting lip balm that goes on clear & turns into a gorgeous blooming pink in a few fairy seconds.
What it is formulated to do:
Think happy thoughts as this subtly blooming, super-nourishing gel crayon tints your lips in true Tinker Bell style. The ultra-moisturizing lip balm glides effortlessly onto lips, reacting to your lips’ pH level to deliver a perfectly personalized pink tint – customized ethereal lip magic to flawlessly flatter any fairy!
I am a huge sucker for nail polish! If you read my blog you would know that I LOVE pink! Anything pink! Naturally I would love the PixiGlow Nail Color .
This pink is SO cute!
I took a picture of my youngest girls hands with it on.
It’s a beautiful pink! Light and covers REALLY well. I did two coats on their nails, but one coat would do the trick no problem.
A gorgeous glimmering pink that gives a magical glow to fingers & toes.
I loved ALL of the PixiGlow products! I love how smoothly they all go on and just feel GOOD. It honestly doesn’t feel like you’re being weighed down from make-up.
Now onto the good stuff for YOU!
