PR Samples|Affiliated Links

Hi loves, welcome back to my blog! I am so excited to share with you some of the new Pixi collaborations that recently came out. In today's post I will be focusing on the products created by famous YouTuber and Blogger Aspyn Ovard. I was so excited to see some beautiful highlighters and a pretty blush included in this collection (I am a huge blush lover). I have fallen in love with this collection because the colors go with my skin tone perfectly!

In this collection there is two highlighters which is called Glow-y Powder and they come in the shades London Lustre and Santorini Sunset. London Lustre has more of a yellow undertone to it and Santorini Sunset has more of a golden undertone. Both shades are seriously stunning and work really well with my fair skin. I really love the texture of these highlighters as well. They have a nice smooth texture and they are made with mineral powder which helps hydrate the skin.

Next is the blush which is also considered a Glow-y Powder. And the blush is in the shade Rome Rose which is the most prettiest rose pink with a little golden shimmer. It reminds me a lot of NARS Orgasm but just a little darker. This also has the same texture of the highlighters and it blends out so easily.

Each Glow-y Powder retails for $16.00 and can be bought at www.target.com.

Lastly in the collection we have the Eye Accents kit which comes with the Lower Lash Mascara and the Brow Tamer which is a clear brow gel. I am in love with the lower lash mascara because it really does do a good job with making your lower lashes look more long and full, also the mascara is water resistant as well. The brow gel I thought was just a standard brow gel. It kept my brows into place all day.

The Eye Accents kit retails for $16.00 and can also be found at www.pixibeauty.com. You can also purchase the Lower Lash Mascara and Brow Tamer separately at www.target.com.

Rimmel London Kate Sculpting and Highlighting Palettes Swatches & Review


Affiliated Links|PR Sample

Hey loves, it has been way too long since I have done a post, and I do apologize about that! Pregnancy life has been really getting to me lately. Mainly with decluttering the whole house and just getting the baby room ready! Only four more months to go! While I was going through my makeup I found these Rimmel London Kate Sculpting and Highlighting palettes that I completely forgot about. They were sent to me a while ago and I totally forgot I had them. So I finally wanted to get up a review and swatches of these because they are seriously stunning and such a great find in the drug store. 

These palettes come in three different shades. Golden Sands which is the lightest palette, Coral Glow which is more for medium skin tones and then Golden Bronze which is the darkest of the three. After playing around with these I found Coral Glow to be my favorite. All of the highlight shades are very similar so there really isn't that big of a different between those. With the bronzers you can clearly see a different. Golden Sands has a light warm tone bronze, Coral Glow has a beautiful cool tone bronzer and Golden Bronze has a very deep bronzer. My favorite bronzer of the three is from the Coral Glow palette. I do have very fair skin, but I do wear a lot of cool tones. I feel like cool tones work best with my skin. For the blushes, Golden Bronze has a cool tone light pink, Coral Glow has a beautiful coral peach blush and then Golden Bronze has a beautiful peachy pink with golden undertones (reminds me so much of Orgasm by NARS). 

I noticed they all had the same texture when it came to the highlight and the bronzer, but with the blushes it was slightly different. The blush in the Golden Bronze palette was very chunky and had some fall out. But I did find all the shades to be very pigmented. I also noticed that the bronzer in the Golden Bronze palette did apply patchy, so because of that and the fall out with the blush, that is my least favorite palette. If I had to recommend one of the palettes for you to try it would for sure be the Coral Glow palette. I think this palette will be a hit for the Spring time.

Each palette retails for $6.99 and can be found at www.ulta.com
