Review: Pixi Ultimate Beauty Kit
Hello you gorgeous muggies! (aka Make Up Geeks ) Here is another review of a holiday palette that came out for 2012- the Pixi Ultimate Beauty Kit!
What is It?
A sleek makeup palette that includes 32 eyeshadows, 8 blushes, and 16 lipglosses.
My opinion on this product:
Now anyone who knows me knows that I pretty much live at Target. I should have my own parking spot there- it’s bad enough that half the workers know me on a first name basis… Anyways, I’ve always walked past the Pixi makeup products while perusing the best aisle ever- the makeup aisle, but I rarely get impressed by what I see. However when I saw this massive yet sleek palette sitting on the shelf, I had to stop and try it out.
I love how sleek this palette is- with all the fussy packaging from other brands, it was refreshing to see a cute yet simply designed palette that had almost everything you need for a makeup look. It includes a nice variety of 32 eyeshadows- some matte and some shimmery. It has some bright colors and some excellent blending colors so its easy to create a complete look with just one palette. The eyeshadows are fairly pigmented, smooth, and easy to blend. They could have just a little bit more pigmentation, but they’re definitely not bad.
Now let’s get to the blushes: amazing! They’re so smooth, nicely pigmented, and come in a variety of colors from peach to pink and mauve. There’s 2 matte finish ones and 6 shimmery.
There’s also 16 lipglosses in a wide variety of colors- they look cheap at first glance, but they’re actually pretty good! They could be slightly more pigmented, but way better than other lipgloss palettes I’ve come across. Plus they don’t smell funky and aren’t overly sticky either.
I really don’t have many complaints on this palette other than it could use a few more eyeshadow colors (there’s no green and only one purple). The price is a little steep if you’re looking for an inexpensive palette, but it’s still cheaper than the major brand palettes that average around $52…
