Pixi Haul and Review!

Hi Guys,

Back when I was down in London for Imats (Let me know if you'd still like to see a post about that by the way!) I popped into Pixi on Carnaby Street. I've heard a lot of lovely things about Pixi and decided I wanted to try it out for myself! 
Pixi is a brand set up by Petra a swedish make up artist, who wanted to create multi purpose and easy to use products. They also don't test their products on animals. They offer a wide selection too from Makeup, Skincare and Tools. It has created quite a buzz online for the past few years, after Louise from Sprinkle of Glitter and Caroline Hirons both raved about products from Pixi, both products I had to pick up and try! 
Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in Coral Crush - £8 HERE
I originally didn't get this until I went back to London, My mum had gotten the shade Naturally Pink, a lovely pink nude shade. I instantly regretted not getting myself one, so I was on a mission when I went back! I was going for Naturally Pink, But I felt like a change and went for Coral Crush, Im not a very big orange wearer, but this is a lovely corally, more on the pink side pigmented shade. A lot more pigmented than I thought especially for a tinted lip balm. With Shea Butter, Its so softening on the lips, they smell like sweeties too! 

Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen Kit - £16.50 HERE
Louise inspired me to get these after hearing her rave about these for years! This kit is incredible for what it includes, you're getting five of their best selling eye pencils in the shades, Black Noir, Deep Plum, Black Cocoa, Sage Gold and Oyster Glow, plus a little sharpener too!  In one full size pencil you get 1.2g of product at £11, in the kit you get five mini but generous pencils at 0.8g each. That means your getting 2.8g more for only £5.50 extra. I think this kit is such a great way to try out the different shades. I often find in a lot of kits you get maybe three wearable shades out of five, theres not a single shade in this kit I wouldn't use.

Did I mention they're also water and smudge proof, extremely pigmented and lovely and creamy to work with. I don't find that they drag at all and last great on the waterline. They do have an oyster finish however, except from Black Noir which is matte. Win!
Pixi Glow Tonic - £18 HERE
This is raved about in the Blogger community, Skin Care Blogger Caroline Hirons, raves about the stuff! Ive tried to get it for quite a few years now when I've been in London and it was always sold out! I was so excited to finally see this in the lovely Soho store!

So Pixi Glow Tonic is a exfoliating toner, You can use it twice a day though, as I was a little weary after some exfoliating toners say use twice a week. Its got some lovely ingredients in it from Aloe Vera to Witch Hazel, I found when I had a bit of a flare up with my skin this soothed it and reduced it, while making my dry skin feel a lot softer and plumper. Ive noticed that the really bad dry patches on my face has disappeared and my skin feels a lot brighter.

Sorry about the sad state my pictures are in, in this post, Lighting is on its way so no more grainy pictures hopefully! (If I can figure out how to use them!)
