In the name of multi-tasking and packing light *laughs* I decided that the best course of action was to get my hands on make-up that ‘did it all.’ So, when I saw the Pixi Ultimate Beauty Kit – 2nd Edition, (at such a fab price I might add) I knew that it had to be mine. palettes are the way forward and if you’re a girl that loves choice, loves to take her make-up from day to night and loves having all her shades in one place…. this is a real swoon worthy offering from Pixi.
There are a whopping 40 eye shadow shades in this Pixi palette, featuring both cool and warm colours, which means that this palette ticks all the boxes for different skin tones, hair and eye colours! Swirl your brush into 12 different blushers and get ready to master the strobbing trend with a set of highlighters to make those cheekbones pop!
The Pixi ultimate beauty kit folds up into a handy, lightweight size so you could even pop this in your hand bag, if you wanted to create a more elaborate make-up look in the glamorous surroundings of the work loo!
There are eye popping colours as well as more neutral shades for and the colours glide on smoothly and blend well. The only thing I had a little difficultly was with the colour shade itself. I would say the majority of the eyeshadows are shimmery, which everyone knows isn’t a problem for me but some of them weren’t true to colour. I would blend on what a thought was a nice burnt bronze and instead it came out as more of an orange colour. Still, for the price I think that this set is really great value and is perfect if you want choice, or if you’re trying to be a little more daring in the world of make-up!
It hasn’t beaten my all time favourite palette, but it’s a good piece of kit to have around! I bought this palette in the store when they were on special offer, but it looks like they’re sold out pretty much everywhere. The only place I could find it was on Ebay right here.
