Pixi Beauty Spring 2011 Collection Reviews, Photos, Swatches and Giveaway

Sweep away your winter blues with Pixi’s latest Spring 2011 Collection!


Pixi Beauty Spring 2011 Collection

Succulent Lip Twin ($18) combines a multi-purpose lip balm in a tube with a solid lip and cheek tint in the cap. Ingredients include Aloe Vera, Jojoba Oil, Lavender extract, Vitamin E and Shea Butter so you can nourish, soothe and heal stressed skin while adding a tint of color to your lips and cheeks.

There are 4 shades to choose from, Nude Lilly, Coral Camellia, Pink Peony and Poppy Red. I have Pink Peony, a bright hot pink color that is gorgeous and perfect for spring.

Although the lip balm applies smoothly and gives my lips a nice pop of color and shine, it feels a little greasy and has a very strong smell that I am not too fond of.

The lip and cheek tint, on the other hand, is great! It is highly pigmented and really easy to use. All I have to do is apply 3 dots directly onto the apples, blend and I get a natural-looking flush that stays on all day. I also like using this on my lips for a rosy look..

Endless Silky Eye Pen ($14) is a waterproof, non-transfer eyeliner that claims to deliver the intense effect of a liquid liner at the ease of a pencil.

It comes in 6 colors, Black Noir, Black Blue, Black Tulip, Black Cocoa, Deep Plum and True Teal. Black Blue is a deep navy color with really fine shimmer.

The pencil has a buttery texture and goes on easily without pulling or tugging the skin. While the effect is a little short of a liquid liner, the color is pigmented and does make my brown eyes pop. Plus once the liner sets, it stays on all day with zero budging or smearing until I take it off.

Finally, Lumi Lux Radiance Power ($26) is an all-over illuminating powder in shades of peachy gold, rose, pinky peach and nude with a beautiful floral design. The colors can be used separately or altogether on the face, cheeks, eyes and décolleté to add radiance and perk up tired skin.
