Some Favorites and Fails from Pixi by Petra

*Today’s post is written by contributing blogger Amy.
Today you are in for a treat as I have a whole bunch of fabulous products from Pixi Beauty to review. This is one of my favorite beauty lines and I’ve done several reviews in the past. To be honest though, I loved most of these current items, but there were a couple that just didn’t really work for me so I’m going to call this my favorites and fails from Pixi by Petra. Let’s get the fails out of the way first.
Pixi by Petra mascara and primer
I will preface this by saying I have board straight eyelashes, so I have to use waterproof mascara if I want my lashes to hold a curl. Even though the mascara isn’t waterproof, I thought I’d give it a try. I curled my lashes first, then used the primer. It’s a nice consistency and the brush made it easy to apply. However, as soon as I put it on, my lashes fell flat. I allowed the primer to dry, curled my lashes once more, and tried the Large Lash Mascara. It was hard to get my lashes to curl much after I had applied the primer, but the mascara on top did help give me a little curl.

As you can see, it definitely added some length to my lashes, which I loved. It did clump a bit, but I’m not sure if that was the mascara or the primer.
I decided to try the mascara as a second coat on top of my regular waterproof mascara along with some of the fabulous Endless Silky Eye Pens I got to try.

Look at these gorgeous colors!
I used the Endless Silky Eye Pen in Black Blue on my top waterline, and the Eye Bright Liner on my lower waterline which I loved! I did a super closeup  of my eyes so you could see the definition of my lashes as well as the liners. I loved both the liners, the Endless Silky Eye Pen goes on so smoothly, and I definitely found my eyes to be brighter using the Eye Bright Liner. Those two have made it into my every day makeup routine.
I did like the mascara as a second coat, but it was still a bit clumpy for my liking.
The next two products I tried were the Palette Chloette and the Lip Icing from the Pixi + Chloe Morello collaboration.
Both of these were big winners for me! First off, the palette… It is beautiful, and goes on so smoothly. I wore it all day and it looked as good as when I first put it on. I really loved the eye shadow.
Here’s a look of my whole face, using the Palette Chloette and the Lip Icing. For this photo, I just used the Lip Icing on top my natural lips, and it adds the most perfect sheen. I also used the following Pixi Beauty products:

Let me tell you, I am using more and more Pixi Beauty in my makeup routine and have been so pleasantly surprised by how much I love them all.

      They are really the easiest eye pencils to apply that I’ve tried in a long time. You’ll love them!

      I figured the lash primer and mascara didn’t work for me because of my super straight lashes…glad they worked for you!

    That bottom picture is beautiful. I can’t wear an eyelash primer since my lashes always fall with one on, they are too heavy for my wimpy lashes. I enjoy that palette so that one is a winner for me also.

      Yep, primers make my wimpy lashes fall immediately as well. Love that palette so much!
