 So, Pixi just got released here and I’ve been wanting to try out some of their products, so I got a couple of their face palettes, and I am pleased with them so far.

Now, originaly I didn’t want the bronzer palette, and I actually thought I ordered the contour palette, but when I got it in the mail I figured I’d give it a go anyway, and I did end up liking it for what it is.

So, when it comes to the bronzer palette, I do think that the shades are a bit too warm, and I do wish that some of them were a bit more neutral, since you do get 6 different shades, I think that they could’ve easily had a few opptions when it comes to the tone of the powders, so that is something to keep in mind if you’re interested in trying these.
However, these powders are very easy to blend, and as long as your carefull when you dip your brush in to the pans so you don’t pick up too much product, they do look very beautiful on the skin.
And the bronzers doesn’t fade on my skin, at least not noticably, so I am very pleased with that.

Now, when it comes to the highlighter palette, I do like this a lot more, mostly because I just tend to like highlighters more than bronzers, but as far as the texture of the powders goes, I do think that they’re quite similar to each other.
With that said, as far as these highlighters go, I do think that they’re a bit more on the subtle side if you apply one layer, so you won’t get that super blinding highlight right away, but you can build them up if you prefer that, so these are very easy to work with, and I do like the fact that you can “choose the brightness” from day to day.

I also love the fact that you get 6 different shades in this palette, and some of them are very light, so I do think that, at least the Glow Getter palette, would work for very fair skintones.
However, I don’t know if any of these palettes would really work for you if you have a deep skintone.
They might work for medium skintones, but I don’t think I would recommend them for anyone who’s any darker than that.

Other than that I will say that the highlighters do fade a little throughout the day. They don’t fade away completly, but they do dull down a bit, so that’s something to keep in mind.
But, overall I am very impressed with these palettes, and I do think that you would enjoy them if you’re into bronzers or highlighters, and if you like to mix and match your shades.
They do also have a contour and a blush palette if you’re interested in checking those out.

I got mine from Kicks for 351nok a piece.
