Pixi Glow-y Powder
If you’re not in the mood or the market to spend upwards of £40 on glow, as per the current popular glow palettes, you might want to look at the Pixi Glow-y Powder at £14 HERE. These are made in collaboration with Aspyn Ovard, blogger and vlogger, and they’re very cute! What I like about them is that they’re quite gentle shades – I have Rome Rose and London Lustre here – not forceful and overpowering, which means that you can control your glow and highlight.
That’s not to say there is no sheen – it’s pretty good – and you need the lightest sweep of a brush to get a rose-gold or white gold light. They don’t feel dusty or dry at all which makes me think there is some oil in the formula – it’s kinder to older skin because it’s not so drying. I’ve also tried the Liplift Max in Petal Ice (it looks completely clear on the lip) and it is amazing! I love it – apart from the minty taste that seeps into my mouth. If you like a glossy lip, this feels like a ‘tight’ gloss, so not gloopy and drippy, that clings to the lips really well and has good last. It’s peptide infused and is supposed to have a plumping element which I didn’t find at all, but as a long last lip sheen, it’s absolutely spot on.
I happened to pick these up at a dinner for Caroline’s cleanser with Pixi (HERE) but otherwise, I don’t really have much contact with the brand. I interviewed Petra Strand very much back in the day for a magazine that no longer exists when Pixi had only just started and I’m amazed at how the brand has come along in leaps and bounds. I’ve seen bits and bobs but nothing consistent so I’ve enjoyed these new discoveries. Liplift is a keeper, for sure, especially at £12 HERE.
I’ve got the new Peel and Polish Mask to try next, and I’m looking forward to it.
