This Fall has brought about some new products into PIXI Beauty-land that cover the basics for a simple yet dynamic look – bold matte lips and a dramatic cat eye! Of course, with a face like that you can’t forget about brows 😉
Cat Eye Ink ($14.00 // PIXI Beauty). I love the slanted tip on this liner! It makes it incredibly easy to get the eye look you want, whether it’s a cat eye or just a basic line. My major beef lies with how wet it is. No matter what (primer, shadow, powder…) it never set or dried down, particularly in the outer corner. It was extremely bizarre. The remaining lid color faded quite a bit throughout the day as well. Hopefully a reformulation is in the works because the applicator is on point.
Endless Brow Gel Pen ($11.00 // Target). This is a soft, lovely brow pencil. Very easy to use, but pretty waxy. I think this would work better on someone with moderate to full brows that need more of a tinted setting wax that is in pencil form. My brows are sparse so I like to draw on a fuller brow – therefore this formula isn’t good for me to use (personally).
Mattelustre Lipstick ($12.00 // Target). These lipsticks are the major winners out of this group of products. Of the 11 shades available two were sent to me for review in Pure Fuchsia (vivid fuchsia pink) and Plum Berry (cerise berrry tint). First of all don’t let words like “tint” or “lustre” fool you. The pigment is real on these. Since these aren’t an actual true matte the word lustre refers to the sheen you get when you wear it. It’s a beautiful, juicy look. These lipsticks also include peptides, hyaluronic acid, and vitamins C & E help to create fuller, smoother looking lips. Pick up a few, I’ll def be grabbing more!
I’m loving the major matte lip trend, especially in that vampy berry color… what’s your favorite shade to wear?
