today have the Pixi blogger makeup samples for January to share... and they are fantastic. (all products in this post are press samples, kindly provided to me for review). i was especially excited to try out two of their makeup brushes as brushes are something i absolutely adore. i got the Lash & Brow Brush and the Flat Liner Brush. as for makeup, i received the Correction Concentrate, the Natural Brow Duo in Natural Brown, and the Large Lash Mascara in Bold Black.
here's a look at the packaging!
and here's a look what the products themselves look like.
Pixi recommends using the Flat Liner Brush with the Correction Concentrate which is an under eye concealer/corrector. i LOVE the Correction Concentrate and have been using it for a really long time... anytime i put makeup on, that goes on first. i'm getting to the end of my currently one, so it was happy dance time to find it in this month's box :D it's a peach toned cream product that is thick enough to cover well, but not drying. the Flat Liner Brush works okay with it and as a concealer brush, but i prefer to use a fluffier brush to buff it in.
the Lash & Brow Brush is a traditional spoolie, it works well for brushing your brows! i like how cute these brushes are :) the Natural Brow Duo in Natural Brown has a nice taupe tone to it, which is what i like in a brow color. the pencil is a twist up and is shaped more like a dash than a traditional pencil point. it's a little hard, but does give the brows a nice color. i like the brow gel a lot, it's very sheer but has a slight brown tint. it keeps brows in place and gives them a nice look. it can get a little hard if you use a lot, but it doesn't peel or flake!
here are swatches...
finally, the Large Lash Mascara in Bold Black... it's very black and has quite a large brush. it gives the lashes length and volume and doesn't get clumpy. it gives a fluttery look that's just a bit over the top to be natural, but not super in your face!
i have on all the products in the photo below :D
you can find Pixi products at Target stores, www.Target.com, and www.PixiBeauty.com!! until the January 24, 2015 you can get 10% off your Target Pixi purchase in store with their Cartwheel app... i love that app so much!!
