Pixi Pretties Review

Pixi. I have talked about this incredible brand many times here on my blog already and I don't think about changing that any time soon. They super kindly sent me the new Pixi Pretties collection and I was so excited when I opened the package!

On social media, these three palettes have been photographed a million times by now so it was particularly hard for me to find the perfect composition to take these pictures! I eventually just went back to the good old flatlay without much going on just to make sure you guys can see how pretty these are!

Without any further ado, let's just jump right into it, shall we?

Dimensional Eye Creator - Weylie Hoang
The lovely face behind this kit is Weylie Hoang. I haven't heard of her before but now that I know her, I'm super glad! Her YouTube channel, her videos and her Instagram are right up my street and I just love her!
The palette she created with Pixi is just as amazing! It has six neutral shades, two shimmery ones and four matte ones. You can literally create the perfect everyday eye makeup look just with this palette! I've been using it almost non stop for the past two weeks and I just don't seem to get bored of it - which is a good thing, of course! However, the 2-in-1 Black Kohl Pencil & Liquid Eyeliner is not so great, for me at least. I'm not the eyeliner kind of girl though this one isn't the only one I own so I do know how a liquid eyeliner should feel on the skin. This one leaked into all the fine lines on my hand so I tried it on my eyes and it did the exact same - it just didn't look good... The kohl pencil, however, is amazing - it's super soft and easy to apply!
Just like the eyeshadows, which I have to mention here once again - they're so easy to blend and extremely pigmented, just like the other palettes which I will talk about in a minute. Really didn't expect such high pigmentation, to be honest!

Palette Chloette & Lip Icing - Chloe Morello
Her palette is just stunning. I love the concept of blushes, combined with eyeshadows and three powders to fill in your brows and line or contour your eyes with! Again, I absolutely love all the shades included in this palette, especially the three blush shades! At the moment, I love using blush and these are just perfect!
The Lip Icing is infused with rose hip and marula oil to nourish your lips and that's exactly what it feels like! It's not sticky on the lips, it just feels super hydrating and looks stunning due to the shimmery particles in the formula! I also absolutely love the smell of this - it's the typical Pixi lip product smell and it's just the best one ever!

Dulce's Lip Candy & Café con Dulce - Dulce Candy
The lip palette had me a bit on the hold at first because normally I don't opt for a lip colour from such a palette. However, this palette did change my mind about lip palettes! The shades are SO buttery and soft, smell divine and look gorgeous on the lips! You can apply them with your finger or with a brush to receive different types of intensity. For n my swatches, I applied them with my finger and only had to go in the pan once! Still super impressed!
The Café con Dulce palette is not only an eyeshadow palette but also a face and highlighter palette. I would definitely use all the shades all over my face, haha. They're just gorgeous and super buttery as well! To be honest, I haven't swatched such creamy and soft eyeshadows in a very long time, which surprised me even more, as I really didn't expect this from Pixi!
For my swatches, I, again, used my finger without any fixing spray whatsoever and can you see how pigmented they still are?!
The lighter shades look beautiful as an inner corner highlight and the other ones look just as incredible, of course!

Guys, I honestly didn't think I would love these collabs so freaking much! I'm super impressed with the quality of the products and how they perform when used every day!
Very well done, Pixi! And thanks so much once again for this generous PR package!!
