Pixi January 2015 Makeup Samples Swatches and Reviews!

i'm super excited, tomorrow i'm going to the Maryland Horse Expo... which i'm mainly excited about for the shopping ;) there hasn't been many opportunities here to go to craft and gem shows, which are my absolute fave, so i'm hoping to find some good stuff tomorrow!

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!!
