Beauty Review: Pixi by Petra Ultimate Beauty Kit Second Edition + Swatches


I've been hearing and reading so much about the Pixi brand, it was only a matter of time until I'd go on a makeup buying spree. And whatdya know, I did. 
And yes, I did some damage, but it was SO WORTH IT!

I bought three products (now would be the time to applaud my ability to restrict myself): The Ultimate Beauty Kit Second Edition (managed to snatch the last in stock for only $17!! It was originally $34!), the famous Glow Mist and the Tinted Brilliance Balm in Magnific Mauve

For the record, I have no regrets.


Just look at this baby. 
Everything - from the carefully designed (and convenient, 3-fold) packaging to the contents of this beauty kit is simply stunning. 

There are 30 cool and warm eyeshadows (some more shimmery than others, but all beautiful), 6 heavenly highlighters and 6 cheek blushes

The eyeshadows are definitely on the more natural looking, almost nude side (aside from a couple blue and purple colors). Some are more pigmented than others, but here's the awesome thing: you can build them up to achieve the desired look. They don't crumb, they don't crease, they are very blendable and just all around amazing to use. This, in my opinion, is just the perfect palette for spring and summer. You can pull of a very breezy spring look with some of the lighter shades, or go all out on the bolder colors. There are quite many combinations here and I am just so excited to explore them all. 

I also love to the fact that these eyeshadows, blushes and highlighters are all infused with vitamin E. They definitely go on a bit smoother than most of my other eyeshadows, and they give you this really fresh, energized and luminous look. You will look (and feel!) like a freaking fairy. 

Oh, and they stay in place. I did use the Glow Mist on top, so it might be due to that, but my makeup did not budge a millimeter all throughout the day. 







Here are three very different looks I achieved with this palette:
