Looking for a last minute gift? Head to the beauty aisle at your nearest Target for Pixi Beauty‘s Holiday Makeup sets. Pixi has several affordable holiday set to please anyone form 8 to 80. I have two to show you today, Palette Rosette ($28) and Fairy Dust Favourites ($12). 

Palette Rosette in Rosy Radiance is an all-in-one palette designed to bring out your inner glow. The kit contains pretty shades of rose, taupe and cream for a natural and highly wearable look for all skin tones. There are eight eyeshadows, three face shades and three brow shades. The eye shades are broken down into highlights, lid shades and contours. The face powders include an all over glow shade, a blush and a contour shade. The brow shades are light brown, taupe and deep brown to black.

FACE COLORS:

  • All Over Glow is a soft pink highlighter with a soft and creamy texture. It looks lovely as a blush topper and a lid shade as well as it’s intended purpose as a highlighter.
  • Cheek Blush is a pretty rose with just the right amount of shimmer and pigmentation.
  • Enhancing Contour is a great contour/bronzer for pale girls like me. In the picture I have it around my hairline, under my cheekbones and along the jaw bone.

For those who want to embrace the sparkle of the season, the Fairy Dust Favourites set in Metallic Warmth is the answer. Fairy Dust are loose eyeshadow pigments that can be worn wet or dry. Using wet increases the pigment to give a ‘foiled’ effect. Used dry, these are very sheer and soft. The set is housed in a tower of stacked cubes that attach to each other.

True Bronze: gold bronze shimmer
Sunkissed Amber: medium bronze shimmer
Ruby Sheen: soft red shimmer
Black Pearl: black shimmer that’s gray when sheered out

In addition, if you’re short on stocking stuffers, you’ll want to take a look at the Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen in Opal Overcoat ($12) and Mattelustre Lipstick in Classic Red ($12). After all…what woman can resist a red lipstick?

The demi-matte lipstick glides on and conditions lips. Classic Red is a pigmented blue-based that leaves behind a stain.

The Pixi Endess Silky Eye Pen is Opal Overcoat is a must-have for me. It’s one of those multi-purpose products I love. Use it on top of other liners to give a pearly effect, on the inside corners of eyes and even on the waterline to give a wide awake look.

For this quick, easy day look I used the shimmery gold eye highlight on the brow bone, the taupe lid shadow, the mid-brown contour shade in the crease, the enhancing contour as a bronzer and under cheekbones, the cheek blush color and the all over glow as a cheek topper. I lined my eyes with the Endless Silky Eye Pen in Graphic Greige and highlighted the inner corners with the Endless Silky Eye Pen in Opal Overcoat. The lip color is Pixi Ripe Raspberry Shea Butter Lip Balm.

Bottom Line: though you may not be impressed with the Pixi Palette Rosette in Rosy Radiance in the packaging, I love the pretty and flattering looks you can create with it. Mixing the different shades and textures gives you endless options and all the colors are universally flattering to all skin tones.
