i'm super excited to share Pixi's Ultimate Beauty Kit 2nd Edition with you all, this is one fantastic palette! (it's a press sample, kindly provided to me for review). this palette has twelve face powders and FORTY eyeshadows... for only $34! it's made out of sturdy cardboard and is a tri-fold design with a magnetic closure.
this is a perfect travel companion as it has everything you'll want to make pretty much any look you can come up with... the only face powder you might need to add to your travel bag would be bronzer, as there aren't really any dark enough shades to contour with. you are definitely covered with highlighters and blushes, though! also, there are matte brown shadows that you could use for contour in pinch :) i recommend using an eyelid primer under these shadows to really bring out all the colors... however, all my swatches are without primer, so you can really see them on their own!
the palette is packaged in a small cardboard box with a picture of the kit itself on the outside, making it easy to find in store at Target.
the front of the palette is very simple and pretty, i really love the gold!
when you open it up, you will see all three flaps... i went ahead and labelled them on this overview shot so that it will be easy to match them up with my closeup shots.
first up we have the left flap of eyeshadows!
these arm swatches match up exactly to the palette :)
the center flap consists of you face powders, with the lightest colors at the top and the deepest at the bottom!
and now the swatches!!
last up is the right flap of eyeshadows, these are much warmer than the ones on the left flap.
here are the final set of swatches :)
let me know how you like the way i swatched these... i went back and forth on what would be the easiest way. i liked this format since the swatches match up exactly with what you see in the palette!
this palette retails for $34! you can find Pixi products at Target stores, www.Target.com, and www.PixiBeauty.com!! THIS is the direct link to the Ultimate Beauty Kit 2nd Edition on Target's website and THIS is the direct link to it on Pixi's website.
