I love Spring time and I especially love Spring makeup, so this time of year is right up my street! One of my favourite brands from 2016 Pixi by Petra, has just released their latest collection for Spring Summer 2017. The new collection is actually quite big and it includes lots of lovely new products.
There are new lip balms, palettes, blushers and kabuki brushes. The new collection is available right now and I’m here to give you the low down on the bits you need to try…
The famous Endless Silky Eye Pen* (£12 here) has been released in a new matte formulation, with new shades for Spring. It’s a waterproof, pigmented pencil, which gives you great colour payoff. It means that you can just apply it once and you’re good to go. There are two new shades - Matte Khaki which is a lovely green hue and there's Matte Mulberry, which is pictured here. I’ve been using this beautiful brown purple hue close to the lash line on the eyelid and then extending it through the bottom waterline. It gives you great definition whether you’re creating a subtle smokey eye, or creating a dramatic tightline. It’s very gentle on the eye, designed for people who suffer with sensitive eyes. The addition of Vitamin E nourishes and protects the skin around the eye, whilst Mica provides natural looking luminosity.
The Correction Concentrate* (£14 here) is another fabulous Pixi product and it’s been released in a brand new shade - Awakening Apricot. This concealer arrives in a handy pot and it’s a highly pigmented concealer, which you use for correcting the skin. It’s designed to erase dark circles and blur any fine lines around the eye. The new shade has been designed for olive skintones who need to need help neutralized discolouration. Simply tap it into the after your foundation and before your concealer – you can use it around your eyes, nose and mouth.
The Gel Tint & Silk Gloss* (£14 here) is a new Pixi product, on one side you have a lip stain and on the other you have a gloss. The product is designed to be the perfect pair, the lip tint gives you long lasting colour and the gloss keeps your lips lusciously hydrated. You can use either of the products on their own, or layer them together to bring your lips to life. Pixi even recommend using the tint on your cheeks as a pretty rosy blusher. I have the shade SweetGloss & BerryTint which are two pretty pink/nude shades.
I've swatched some of these lovely products for you below. As you can see the Endless Silky Eye Pen is a such a lovely purple tone and the Gel Tint & Silk Gloss is a perfect handbag essential. As I mentioned, all these pretty new products are available right now! You can pick them up in the London Pixi Boutique, the Pixi Website and at Marks & Spencer.
