Multi-Misting with Pixi Beauty Mists

*pr sample*



Hi Loves,

Welcome in this gorgeous day :) Lets talk about face mists today :) I know I love them , how about you?  I can't imagine misting my face before and after I apply makeup or even a skin care.
Pixi Beauty mists were first ones I tried. Currently they own 5 mists, but I will talk only about 4 which I currently own.




Hydrating Milky Mist 

This one is my favorite. This is my first mist I tried form PIXI range few months ago and fell in love.
This one is great when you have a dry skin. And during winter's month my skin got dry.
It provides an instant boost of hydration with hyaluronic acid to plump the skin. As well it contains black oat, linoleic acid and pro vitamin A to hydrate and soothe. I really like the scent of this one. This mist is always with me, because sometimes during the day I need a boost of hydration.

Makeup Fixing Mist

It has a rose water and green tea formula that helps set makeup and keeps it in place all day. Can be use as a primer and setting mist. Two in one solution , amazing right? It helps powders melts into the skin and gives a beautiful almost air brushes look. Skin don't look cakey.



Glow Mist

This is the mist that people can stop raving about. This mist once you spray it makes you skin looks brighter and glow-y! It contains 13(!) oils, aloe vera and fruits extracts that protects and hydrates the skin.  So if you skin is dry and dull and need some dewiness this mist is for you! I only use it weekends when I don't wear makeup. I spritz it all over my face . I tried with my makeup as a setting makeup spray but unfortunately my oily skin don't like it that way.

Vitamin Makeup Mist

its a vitamin boosting toner that works so good as soonest I wake up.  This mist been on my list for a quite some while. Its made with orange blossom water base enrich with citrus fruit extracts, lavender and arginine to hydrate and strength the skin. It does have a citrus scent and it feels energizing .  I like to use it the most mornings after washing my face.



I personally enjoy each of the mists. Adding them to both my makeup and skin care routine is a game changer :) Mists are lightweight and the idea of multi misting is fab!

Have you try PIXI mists or any other?

PIXI mists are available at Target and PIXI website.
Price $15 each

Algenist Reveal Concentrated Luminizing Drops ~ Swatches and Review

*pr sample*



Hey Loves!

Hope you all are great and like me looking forward to warmer weather. As I am writing this post (don't know when it will go up) NYC area is being hit by a snow storm. Due to all above ground subways being suspended, I am chilling at home :) I did go out to get a creamer for my coffee and that is it! Its icy rain, cold and windy! So yeah I am better off at home preparing new blog post for you. 
A while ago I got a really nice PR package form Algenist. I screamed when I saw reveal Luminizing drops inside! I wanted to try them so bad! As I said many times before I am a highlight junkie. 



There are three shades :
* Pearl ~ contain silver pigments 
* Champagne ~ contain gold pigments 
* Rose ~ contain pink pigments 

These hybrid serum highlighters are not the "in your face" type of highlighters. The more subtle side and give a soft glow to the skin. It also helps to correct and uneven skin tone while providing anti age benefits.  The focus of the drops is to nourish skin, reduce appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. while providing radiance. 
The drops are packed in a beautiful frosted glass bottle with a dropper. There is also a very pleasant scent to it, which I really really like :).



A little goes a long way. The can be mix with foundation, moisturizer or by itself. I like to use them as a highlight on top of my foundation. Gosh they do give a beautiful "glow form within". I use wither my fingers or beauty sponge to apply, either works just fine. They don't feel greasy nor they sink into my pores. I really enjoy the soft glow I get :)  The consistency is thin and not watery. 
The shades i use the most are Pearl and Rose :) I was so drawn to both :) for a gal with cool undertones like me these shades are fabulous. 

What else I like about them is that there is no glitter in it . Beautiful sheen without being overwhelming.  I don't own many liquid highlights but I did  swatches the CoverFX custom drops and compare to these the other ones are way more intense and more metallic. Don't get me wrong I will still get the lightest shade from CoverFX . 




I like Algenist Drops. If you looking for subtle glow with out being to intense check them out. 
They are lovely , they mix great with foundation and they contain great skin benefits :) Whats more to ask! 

They can be found @ Sephora and Algenist website.

Beauty Favorites 2017 ~ March




Hi loves!

yes! I am keeping my monthly game strong so far! I haven't miss a month hahah!

better late than never :) I am already planning my April Faves hahah! there is so many products I been loving ! 

Let's just jump to my favorites :) I have few products to mention :)

MAKEUP 



Let start with a glow! Oh guys I love a good highlight :) Here are two that I been using on and off past month. Pixi Beauty AspynOvard London Lustre ~ soft, velvety texture with a luminous sheen. I been obsessed with it since the first time I got my huge pr package from the brand. it looks amazing on. Second my most loved last month was by the brand 100%Pure. Gemmed Luminizer in shade Moonstone Glow, and holy moly I love it! first off the packing is gorgeous! Pink tin that hold this beauty inside. The highlight is simply stunning! Icy pink that looks really good on my fair skin. I am so grateful to Octoly and 100% Pure for choosing me to review this baby!:)
Kiss NY Pro eye shadow palette in Demeter is simply beautiful. Love the color selection. I like how they names their palettes after Greek goddesses :) I am a huge mythology fan if you didn't know :)This palette will get more use in incoming months as well :) Yes the colors are very spring like in my opinion :) ELF Cosmetics Lip Exfoliate~ after winter my lips are in super bad condition. I been  using ELF's exfoliate few times a week hahah! seriously tho for a price this gem does a great job at removing dead skin cells from lips and leaves them soft. Once i am done I reach for Milani's Moisture Lock oil infused lip treatment. Now I heard so many mixed reviews but I like it. Add shine and well after exfoliating my lips add moisture. 

SKIN CARE



L'Occitane Immortelle Oil makeup remover, this stuff is amazing! I been using it on and off and I still go back to it. The best oil makeup remover. As you can see I am almost half way done with it hahha! two pumps and all my makeup is gone. It don't leave a greasy residue and it won't make your eyes blurry. SebaMed Face and Body Wash, well for me is just a face wash. I like it. very gentle and cleans away all the dirt and left over makeup, works great with my Soniclear Petitte by Michael's Todd beauty. This brush is life! You can check a review that I posted few days ago :) Hydrating Milky Mist by Pixi Beauty, if you don't have you , you have to run and get it. I can not live with out this! I spray it before makeup and after and few times during the day :) a must have for me :) did I mention its really lightweight and smells amazing? I just received a pr from PIXI including all their mist, so yes stay tuned for a blog post next month., all about multi-misting :)

PERFUME



A new category ? why not. two my most loved fragrances are by Estee Lauder -Modern Muse  La Rouge and Modern Muse  La Rouge Gloss. To be honest I can't pick my favorite out of the two. Both smell amazing. 
Modern Muse La Rouge Gloss is more fruity and La Rouge is more rosy-berry vanilla kind of scent. I actually will be getting another Modern Muse perfume very soon. So I might write a post next month on it. I will own 4 bottles so I can compare and tell you which I like the most :)

HAIR CARE



I have not change much in my hair routine. But there are few products and tools I been loving for a past few months. Bio Silk Straighting Titanium Iron, this a new launch for Bio Silk and you guys so worth every penny! Straights my long, really long hair fast and it makes them look so beautiful! Before I start with it I use Bio Silk Thermal Mist or Living Proof Mist. I find both working really good on my hair :) and yes I like them both :) Madam CJ Walker Bressica Seed Hair Oil is a MUST HAVE! I been putting it on my hair every other day and I see so many changes! my hair is not as dry as before and they feel silky soft and look healthy! 



Michael's Todd Beauty Soniclear Petite ~ my go to facial brush

*pr sample*




Hey Loves,

A quick review of Michael's Todd beauty Soniclear facial brush. 
I reviewed it before, but recently I got a new one, so
here is a review once again.



Like I said many time clean skin is a happy skin. Its a must. And for someone who plays in makeup-land its really important. 
I use face brush all the time and my skin feels and looks better. Investing in a device like Soniclear is really good idea you guys. :) I said it many times I do prefer this face brush over Clarisonic. First off I feel like it clean my face better and second brush head last longer ( you don't have to change it for 6 months , Clarisonic you need to do so every 3 months ).



I have acne/sensitive skin by the way. The brush on the device is soft it never irritate my skin, it was never to harsh. The head don't spin but it vibrates. Cleanse all the dirt and leftover makeup away with ease. Soniclear is a sonic skin cleansing brush with build in antimicrobial protection against stain, odor causing bacteria. Sonic cleansing can create a breeding ground for microbial contamination when skin cells, makeup and moisture residue combine with bacteria that cling to the brush bristles between cleansing. It also means that you don't have to replace head as often as with other similar devices.



There are also 3 cleaning speeds that you can adjust to your preference (Low, Medium, High).  
another great thing is that once you start washing your face, it will beep every 20 seconds to tell you to move to other part of your face. I fin this really helpful!



If you have MIA you can notice that the charging is almost same. I said almost ... well there is same attaching charger that just cling to your device ( see pictures below) but it also comes with a charging stand. you can slide the charger in and leave you Soniclear upright until finish charging and even after. I keep my upright all the time. The charging cord is universal. It ends with an USB and you can plug it in any charger. So with that said if you travel to other country and thy have different outlet, you just don't have to worry. Plug into anything that USB fits. Which will works so good for me, coz next time I go back to my country I can bring my Soniclear with me :)



Michael's Todd recently launched new designs for their Soniclear Petite! 10 new fun  designs and colors to choose from.
I already had a pink one before and now I got one called Hawaiian Bliss. This design is so beautiful! Mix of red and blue flowers all over , ahhh just brightness my day already :)

You can find it on Michael Todd's Website ~ $89

and did I mention its cruelty free?

What do you use ? Do you use face brushes?

Weekly Skin Care Picks #1

*pr sample*

Hey Loves,

So I decided that every Sunday I will be showing you my skin care picks from  a week before. 
I used to change  my skin care daily,  but it would be hard to write a post based on that. I would have to either combine the posts or post everyday. And we all know that daily posting is not for me. Sometimes I do have a busy schedule and well post don't go up the time they supposed to.  So with that said I guess Sunday is the best day for the skin care posts to go up.  so let  me show you what products I was using the entire week. 



 Lets start with cleaning my face with Kezo Amazing Cleansing Water ($25).  This is a great refreshing micellar water, that cleanse face and eyes, removing makeup and impurities. Like with all Micellar waters I apply it on a cotton pad and simply clean my face. My skin after looks and feels fresh. The Ginger Plant Essence: cultivated especially for Kenzo in the Chinese providence Shangdong, ginger grows in sandy plains. Naturally rich in mineral salt and essential oils, it help produce a healthy glow and radiance boost.  The skin looks review. The Yuzu extract, native to China, it help to combat skin dryness. To obtain extract, the fruit is picked in October when it is most juicy. Yuzu extract helps to increase water level in skin cells. 
 After that I go with  Ziaja Manuka Tree Cleansing Gel ($12.99). This is great pick for oily/acne skin people. It smooths irritation and calms down the redness. It is very gentle and efficient. Manuka Leaves Extract is a key ingredient, used to solve oily and combination skin problems. Has antibacterial properties, deeply cleans and eliminates bacteria causing acne. This bottle my mom send it to me all the way from Poland. Ziaja Cosmetics is really popular polish brand. In Poland my whole family uses Ziaja . Me, personally I remember using a bronze body lotion. Oh how many bottles I went through it's insane. 
Next step is to combine CelleCle skin care Multi Glow A Night Treatment ($98) and Clarins Booster Detox ($39). Let me start by saying that CelleCle skin care packing is freaking gorgeous! Wow! feels so luxurious just like the product that comes out of it. I been actually using this night treatment for two weeks! This treatment product infuses skin with the perfect synergy of pure, time released Retinol and a scientifically proven Bio Retinoid. Overnight application leaves skin feeling and looking smoother, firmer and brighter. In addition, skin friendly sugars lock in moisture, for hydration, while purifying Chinese Licorice keeps complexion calm, clear and healthy. It helps to even out skin tone and diminishes appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. There is no scent to it. It sinks into the skin and skin just feels good. I like to mix it with Clarins Booster Detox.  It contain green coffee extract to counteract the visual toll of partying, pollution, stress and indulgence. Booster gently purifies and detoxes skin for clearer and more refreshed complexion. A must have for people who lives in a big cites. Booster can not be use alone. Best is to mix with a night cream, serums etc. just add 3 to 5 drops. The booster is not for a everyday use tho. I use it once or twice a week, just when my skin really needs it. I know the bottle might look tiny but it will last you for long time. I like the built in dispenser which helps to get the right amount of product, just simply tap on it and the drops will come. It will not leak or spill :) 
The last product that goes on my skin is my beloved  Kate Somerville Wrinkle Warrior ($95). Thanks to Octoly I got a chance of trying Kate's products and gosh i love them.  Wrinkle Warrior was the second product i received. This all in one serum and moisturizer plumps up the skin using three sizes of  hyaluronic acid. It is lightweight and helps to fight wrinkles, fine lines and crow's feet. It absorbs fast and leaves satin finish. It also improves appearance of skin firmness and elasticity.  It can be use day and night. It does not clog pores and works good with my oily skin. Plus I like the scent :) Yes it does have a fragrance :) 

So this are the pick for this week. Next week I will try to use some drugstore products :)
Did you try any of the above? Or you have any on a wishlist?

Pur Cosmetics Vanity Palettes ~ Dream Chaser and Goal Digger

*pr sample*



Hey loves,

Excited to see Pur Cosmetics launching new palettes! and gosh how fun are they :) They are not like your typical palettes :) Just wait and see for yourself :)

Two new palettes Dream Chaser and Goal Digger just  launched and are available on PURCosmetics.com ($36 each).



Each palette contains 4 eye shadows, a blush, a brozner and a highlight. Inside is also a big mirror that ... wait for it .... is retractable standing mirror that transform the palette into your own little vanity :)  How cool is that! I took me a while tho to figure the mirror thing out hahaha! But i is so easy! once you open the palette , pull the mirror upward and taadaa perfect little vanity for all the touch ups and well makeup on the go :)
I love the idea! 

Now lets talk about the palettes. 




Goal Digger ~ contains shimmer shades. So if you are a fan of all sparkly products this one is for you :) It comes in reflected shiny packaging that is a finger magnet! so watch it :) it took forever to clean this little guy up after I played with it . LOL my weird ocd! I don't like to see finger prints all over hahah! but oh well :)  




Dream Chaser ~ contains matte and more neutral shades. so yeah ,matte junkies this one is for you. The packaging on this is matte. Therefor you can tell them apart, if you have both that means. 
Same for the outer packaging . Box is either matte or shiny. 

the names are not printed inside of the palette (bummer) but you can find them on the back of the box (which I can't find anywhere ) . i guess since it is a smaller or portable size palette they don't have space ? I don't know . 



Overall I really like both palettes. the products are nicely pigmented and they look great on the skin. The only thing I didn't like that the eye shadow were together in the same pan. There was nothing that separated them and with that they kinda mix together. In Dream Chaser its ok coz colors are same color scheme, but Goal Digger have a light and dark together and i have to be extra careful and not to mix them. 
I really like the face products in both. They are soft buttery and overall beautiful looking. 

What do you guys think? Do you like the idea of the palette? Which one is calling you name?

Tropical Muffins *Pinterest Recipe*


Hey Loves,

Pinterest inspired me again :) this time I made Tropical Muffins! Pintrest is a place where I can get any recipe! A little over a month ago, while grabbing my lunch I stumbled upon pineapple coconut muffins. Yum right? but almost $4 for muffin was no no form me. I can make at least a dozen with that price! After getting back to work I look on Pintrest for Pineapple Coconut muffins. i found few but Tropical Breakfast  Muffins by A Spicy Perspective stood out the most. Why? Coz not only it contain pineapple and coconut but it does also my beloved mango :) 



Most of the ingredients I had already at home, I was missing only mango and shredded coconut. 
After getting everything, screwing up recipe (yeah it did happen). LOl let me tell you. I had only 1 cup of sugar, and instead of mixing sugar with butter like recipe say, I mixed it with flour! Yes silly me! I had to go out again. 
My husband, who don't eat anything sweet ate like 6 of them! 



Yum! guys they are so good! not crazy sweet. 
below is the original recipe from A Spicy Perspective :) Also  here is the link to her recipe :)
hope you guys will make it :)



  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened (2 sticks)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 15 ounce can crushed pineapple
  • 3/4 cup diced fresh mango
  • 1 1/4 cup shredded coconut, divided

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line two large muffins tins with paper muffin liners. Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl.
  2. In the bowl of the electric mixer, cream the softened butter and sugar. Beat until light and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes. Scrape the bowl, then turn the mixer on low and add the eggs, vanilla and flour mixture. Scrape the bowl again and add the crushed pineapple, diced mango, and 3/4 cup shredded coconut. Mix until smooth.
  3. Divide the batter evenly between 24 muffins liners. Then sprinkle the remaining shredded coconut over the muffin batter. Place the muffin tins in the oven and bake for approximately 25 minutes. Insert a toothpick in the center of a muffin. If it comes out clean, remove the muffins from the oven. Cool for at least 5 minutes in the muffin tins, then flip the muffins out of the pans.


Palladio Beauty ~ Drugstore haul ~ Swatches and review

*pr sample*




Hey Loves!

I got a surprised package from Palladio a while ago with  many great goodies.
I love Palladio, they are great drugstore brand and their products are simply amazing.
I love the velvet matte liquid lipsticks and crushed eye shadows :)

Palladio was kind enough to send me a lot of great products.
I got:
* 3 velvet metallic lip creams
* 3 matte lipsticks
* 2 stick highlights
* brow products
* mascara

I didn't try all yet tho. On the ones I did try I will give you a quick review and tell you what I think of it.



Velvet Matte Metallic Cream Lip Colors

I do love the original Velvet lip creams :) This one are same but with the metallic finish.
They have a similar formula, but this one as the name suggest have metallic sheen to them. They are really opaque and apply smoothly on the lips. Same as with the velvet matte they don't fully dry down, they will transfer, for example if you drink coffee you will see a stain on the mug. I personally like them. For the price they are really good. Maybe not a everyday wear for me ( I do Love my Nudes) , but hey I rocked one out at my work and I even got compliments :) I really like the fact they they won't dry out my lips. I wore all there shades I got and boy I love them! Definitely will pick up reaming colors :)



shades that I have:
* Opulent ~ really dark red.
* Ritzy ~ dark pink
* Gilded ~ gold brown



Dreamy Matte Lip Color 

Great lipsticks. beautiful colors and amazing pigmentation.  They do wear like dream tho! matte and non drying :) The packaging they come in is sleek black tube  :) on the top there is a sticker with a lipstick name and the bottom shows a lipstick shade. The packaging feels like your holding expensive lipstick to be honest. I really like it. Another thing is they have a scent to it. Which I personally love! I know some don't like scented lipsticks but I do :) The smell like a vanilla :) The go on matte and look gorgeous on the lips. Non drying and wear for about 5h :)



shades I have:
* Refined Chianti ~ for me is a deep wine red, so gorgeous! and my favorite. Perfect vampy color
* Darling Damask ~ grape purple. Another stunner
* Magnificent Magenta ~ dark magenta pink.




Creamy Stick Luminizer

I am a highlight junkie :) So these two sticks were my favorite products from the bunch. I do prefer powder formula though, but these are so creamy , so blend-able and so easy to work with. You can apply either with stippling brush, fingers or beauty sponge.


I have two colors :
* Stunner ~ Champagne Shimmer that I personally love the most. It gives really nice glow to my cheeks :)
* Limelight ~ light pink , that reminds me more of a blush than a highlight :) Its really pretty and I think it will make a great base for a blush :)
They don't feel sticky or leave a greasy residue on the face.



The Brow Definer ~ Medium Brown 

This is one of the products I did not try yet. I'm sorry but I can't put down my brow pomade by Freedom Makeup. Hey Palladio do you make a brow pomades? If not please do!
Palladio Brow Definer is a twist up pencil. With thin tip on one side and spoolie brush on the other side. I got two in a shade medium brown , but looking at the website I see the shade Taupe and I believe that would be a more better match. Anyways I will try it soon and see how it works :)

Brow Obsessed Mousse with Fibers

Yet another product I didn't try but I can say it looks promising. Fibers in a lightweight mousse builds sparse brows and fills in any gaps. I look forward to try this :) It comes in two shades Light/Medium and Medium/Dark.

Palladio Double Agent Faux Lash Effect Mascara

Yes you guessed again I didn't try this one yet. Right now I have like 5 mascaras open and this one will have to wait its turn. I do look forward to trying it :)

All the products I didn't try i will soon and i will give you my thoughts on it :)

Sheet Masks by Miss Spa Beauty ~ Charcoal, 24K Gold and Bubble Mask

*pr sample*



I got three new sheet mask form Miss Spa beauty. 
I love mask and masking :) but it it my first time trying sheet masks . I heard so many mixed reviews about Miss Spa masks that I was not sure this was something for me :( 

 Miss Spa was kind enough to send me three masks:



* Charcoal Clarifying Mask ~ targets pore clogging dirt, bamboo charcoal helps absorb impurities, soothing botanical extracts nourish and hydrates.



* 24k Gold Radiance Mask ~ pure 24k gold helps with luminosity, while skin soothing peptides encourage elasticity to help reduce appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.


* Oxygenating Bubble Mask. ~ re-energize dull looking skin. Nourishing pineapple fruit extract helps replenish and refine skin tone, reviling optimum clarity and radiance. 

Now for my experience with these masks. First i tried Charcoal Mask, I have a large pores and well mask said that It will help to clean pore clogging dirt. The mask is made out of stretchy bamboo fabric and as you can guess its pitch black :) Looks actually fun on the skin. When I opened packaging I was surprised how wet the mask was! It was dripping so bad I had a problem putting it on my face. No kidding. It took me few minutes to place on my face and even it out and be careful not to get "water" in my eyes! Yikes! I did have a problem around my nose area. the mask was cut so weirdly that I took forever to place it on my nose and around it. Finally when I done it all I had to do was to relax for 20 min and then take off the mask. I did feel a bit of stinging effect on my jaw line though. I got scared! Guys one time i tried a mask and it burned my skin ! So when I feel sth is off i have to check it before its too late. I run to the bathroom to see what is happening. I slowly lift the mask but i didn't see anything red. I place the mask back on, the sting continue for more 10 min and than stops. When was time to take the mask off, thank god there was no reddens!  but the amount of residue left was crazy. I didn't know if should I wash it off or patted in to my skin hahah! I went ahead with second choice and gently patted to my skin. Now my skin was so soft and actually healthy looking :) As for the pores I did see a small difference. Nothing major but I could tell the pores were cleaner and smaller :) 
   The 24k Gold Mask is fun! It have a gold powder and once you take the mask off the gold powder will stay on your face. This will give your skin that glowy luminous look. Mask was huge tho! I had problems even it out on my skin LOL. It was smaller around eyes and I was afraid that the liquid would just drop into my eyes. Again the mask was super soaked. Luckily I didn't notice any burning like I did with Charcoal mask.
The Oxygen Bubbling Mask was the most fun of them all. I liked it I really liked it. Again same as before the mask was soaked with a liquid and very soapy. I manage somehow put on my face haha. As soonest you put the that mask on it start bubbling. It do reminds me of my favorite Dr.Brandt Oxygen mask. And I think this my be a cheaper option for you. The mask bubbled and made champagne noises :) It was so relaxing :) After 20 min I took of the mask and saw a white residue on my face. I rub it in and let it hang on there for 5 more min and than I washed it off. My face felt fresh and alive. definitely my favorite mask out of three,


Miss Spa did good with the masks :) I really enjoyed them :)
They are available at Miss Spa Website and Target

Pixi Pretties ~ Spring Collection in collaboration with beauty and lifestyle bloggers

*pr sample*



I am So excited about this post :) Pixi Beauty just launched a Spring Collection that was created by beauty and lifestyle bloggers :) Annnnd Pixi just opened up a flagship store in Cali! OMG! first ever Pixi Store! God I wish we get one here in NYC too! Congrats on the store and this beautiful collab Petra! 
So like I said the Spring Collection was created in collaboration with popular beauty and lifestyle  bloggers: Caroline Hirons, Judy Travis (itsjudytime), Maryam Maquillage (marymanyc) and Aspyn Ovard. 
Each of the ladies sit down with Petra and with her guidance they created their dream products for us :) 



A few weeks ago I got this huge PR package with all the new products. I actually screamed when I saw it. Guys it is HUGE! I was so excited to try everything! Guys I knew I will keep the box (duh who would throw it away?!?) so all day Saturday I was cleaning my makeup place. After more less 4h later I got everything organized and the box sits now on my Alex looking all pretty :) I pull out all the products and move them to my vanity drawer so I could use them :) 




you can see below before and after on my makeup space :) 



So now let me tell you more on each product and each collaboration :)



Let's start with Judy Travis. She is also known as ItsJudyTime on YouTube. I met Judy at NYC Pixi Event October 2016 and she is sooo sweet! I love watching Judy's YT and I was so excited for this collaboration. I have a BH Cosmetics palette that Judy created with BH years ago! Do you guys remember it? So seeing that now she created a new ItEyeTime palette and ItsLipTime palette with Pixi I was thrilled! Each palette comes with 12 shades. 
Eye shadow palette have a mixture of mattes and shimmer shades. Its a warm tones hue-ed palette prefect for everyday. Colors feel silky smooth and they blend like a dream. Top two rows are warm , third have the mauve hues and the bottom have a cool-toned darker shades. This palette is just beautiful. Love the eye looks I created with it. Now I don't know how is they staying power without the eye shadow  base LOL. I been using ArtDeco's primer based for a few weeks now and you guys nothing will ever move of your eyelid. This base hold eye shadows the whole day. But maybe I can tell you more of in my ArtDeco post soon :) Just heads up you need that base! 
 Second palette is a lip palette. Also includes 12 everyday lip and cheek shades. They can me worn by itself or you can mix them up and created your prefect color. I personally will use it as a lip palette only. Again the color section in this palette is just beautiful. We have light neutral shades, we have mauves , reds and darker colors :)  



 Message From Judy explaining why she created these two palettes : " I travel quite often and typically bring minimal makeup, which is why I love palettes," Travis says. "I like having a variety of colors to choose from without packing so many products in my makeup bag. "



Next we have Aspyn Ovard a lifestyle blogger. Too be honest I have never heard of Aspyn until this collaboration. After that I look more into her presona and learned more about her :) 
Aspyn who likes to keep her makeup to minimum  created a trio of face products to add just a bit of flush with out looking overdone. 
The Glow-y Powder Highligher & Cheek Powders, come in three shades named after her favorite destinations :
* London Lustre ~ soft icy - golden highlighter
* Santorini Sunrise ~ warm champagne highlight
* Rome Rose ~ shimmery rose-hued blush.
Her collection also includes an eye accents : lower lash mascara and clear brow gel.
I love the formula on the Glow-y Powders. The pigmentation is just right!  They look gorgeous! the blush and the champagne highlight are my favorite! 



Message from Aspyn explaining why she created these products: " The products I made are products I would purchase myself," Aspyn tells Allure. "I love beauty and makeup, but I'm not super crazy about trying a lot of new different products, so I chose to create my Eye Accents Kit since I believe both those products are essentials. And then I love a strong pretty highlight and a peachy blush, so I created those as well." But her fave in line? "The Lower Lash Mascara! I use it every day on my upper and lower lashes—the small brush separates my lashes really well. "



Next we have Maryam Maquillage. I did not meet Maryam but I saw her at the NYC Pixi Event. Again I had no idea who she was. I mean I don't have to know all Beauty Bloggers right? After the event I found on IG few beauty bloggers and followed them :) I really like what they do! LOL I could do it faster right hahaha! Anyways .... Maryam also known as maryamnyc, created two sculpting/contouring palettes:
* The Strobe & Bronze Glow & Bronze palette
* The Strobe & Sculpt Highlight & Contour palette 
There is also the dual ended brush to go with the palettes :) And the brush is amazing!Both palettes are just as amazing as well. Both come with 6 shades matte and shimmers. They are so pigmented!

Message from Maryam explaining why she created these products : " I really love all three products and cannot live without them because the shades are curated for every occasion in which I want to feel bronzed, glowing, chiseled or all of the above," she says. "We made sure that the powders are packed with pigment, so that all you need is a tiny bit of product for major results " 



The last we have Caroline Hirons and the double cleanser! I met Caroline at that Pixi Event :) She is sooooo sweet! Also when Petra came over to us and introduced herself and Caroline she said Caroline is responsible for popularity of Glow Tonic :) She made that stuff popular and now its a cult product for many bloggers and not only. 
Caroline created with Pixi Double Cleanse :) Which I was super excited about :)  And GOD I love it. I need a back up of a back up seriously! I heard that all the products are limited edition but I hope and pray for them to be permanent especially the cleanser! 
Double Cleanser is paraben free, fragrance free and not tested in animals. It comes with two sides Solid Cleansing Oil and the other side Cleaning Cream. 
First I use the Solid Cleaning oil to take off my makeup, and it does it so well! than I follow with the cream. I love it. It feels gentle and it didn't break me up :) 

The oil side contains :
* Vitamin E ~ protect and condition 
* Cameillia Oil ~ omega rich and nourishes 
* Evening Primrose oil ~ heals and moisturizers 

The cream side contains:
* Vitamin C ~ promotes collagen and protects
* Peptide Complex ~ Line relaxing and plumping
* Arginnie ~ Improves cell renewal and elasticity.

Message from Caroline explaining why she created double cleans : " I am known for cleansing properly—my first post back in 2010 was on cleansing, and it’s still one of my most popular ones," Hirons tells Allure. "The Double Cleanse can be used three ways: You can either use both steps in the evenings, step one followed by step two, or you can use just step two in the evenings if you aren’t wearing makeup, or you can use step two on its own in the morning. It takes literally two minutes if you’re in a hurry. No excuses! "

All mentioned products are available in Target , Target website and Pixi Store and Website
