Anyone that knows me, knows I am all about that glow. Beautifully, glowing, dewy make up really can make the skin look fresher, plumper and dare I say it, more youthful. However, there comes a time in everyones life when glitter is not required, necessary or needed and you want a more “grown up” glow that still keeps you looking gorgeous.
Recently, one of my favourite make up brands, Pixi, sent over the most beautiful PR collection and it is absolutely stunning. I just knew I had to share it with you all as so many of you love the type of glow I do which is mature, but popping hahaha and yes! You can have both. Included in the collection I was incredibly lucky to receive were two Glow-y Gossamer Duo Highlighters and five beautiful Liquid Fairy Lights, sparkling liquid eyeshadows which can be used in many different ways.
Glow-y Gossamer Duo Highlighter –
These beautifully silky highlighters are like nothing I have tried before. They feel so soft and almost liquid like upon application, but are in fact a super fine powder. They cling effortlessly to the high points of the face or brow creating the most naturally pretty and soft highlight on the skin. They are super pigmented without looking cakey and last so long on the skin. I love to add a little setting spray to my brush after picking up the product to really make it glow, but if you prefer a more subtle blend than you can apply with your fingers or a soft brush. Infused with Diamond powder and vitamins, they almost melt into the skin whilst adding that pop of colour when angled towards the light. Absolutely glorious.
Subtle Sunrise –
Contains two incredibly pretty highlighters that are tones of rose and rose gold and blend beautifully together, especially over sun kissed or darker skin tones.
Delicate Dew –
This duo collection is the most pretty gold selection that works well on all skin tones but looks stunning on paler skin tones. I love using these shades on my brow bone and inner corner of my eyes. A really beautiful selection of highlighters ( that remind me of the Fenty formula I love) that I can highly recommend as I have not stopped wearing them this Summer.
Liquid Fairy Lights Liquid Shadow –
Ok, before you panic at the thought of a liquid eyeshadow, you really need to check these out. Infused with Chamomile and Rose Extracts these are different. Not only do they included great skin beneficial ingredients which soothe and hydrate the eye area, but thanks to those ingredients, these liquid shadows do not dry and crumble into the creases of the eye or any wrinkles you may have. As someone with a more mature skin, that is dehydrated and not as smooth as it once was, these work beautifully alone or as eyeshadow toppers. These are super pretty and really take your eye look to the next level. They can be used alone or over make up and are easy to apply. Using the doe foot applicator, deposit an amount of product onto the centre of the lid then buff out with a brush or finger. I like to apply these to the centre of my eyeshadow and pat in with my fingers to really make my eyes pop. I also love to apply a tiny amount to the middle of my lower lashes. These would work wonderfully for any festival looks, but can also be applied lighty for a day to day look. Available in the following shades :
PassionLights – A beautifully sparkly Bronze tone
BareBrilliance – A gorgeous Mink with a Grey undertone
RoseGold – A super pretty Rose Gold tone
Crystalline – A clear base with all the White Sparkles
SunRay – A light Gold with pale Yellow tones
I have been loving these products over the Summer and know that I will use them so much over….dare I say….the festive season. They are super pretty products at really affordable prices.
