New items from Pixi Beauty for 2011

These items showed up on my doorstep the other day to announce the re-launch of the Pixi Beauty website. I had almost forgotten about Pixi! I used to love to look at Pixi when it was at Sephora- it may have been the picture of the hot Swedish chicks they had- the blonde, brunette and redhead sisters? In fact, I think that picture is still up here... And Target has carried Pixi for the past few years, too, now that I'm thinking about it... Anyway, their new website is here and they're currently running a 20% off sale with code TWENTYOFF.

Here's what I got to review:

Succulent Lip Twin in Nude Lily, Lumi Lux Radiance Powder and Endless Silky Eye Pen in Black Blue.

Look how pretty the pencil is!

It's a very deep blue black shade. It says eye pen but it's definitely a pencil. It has an extremely silky, smooth, soft texture and it's very smudge-able. I tried to swatch it alone, but the tip snapped off; I think getting frozen in the negative temperature weather messed with it a little.

Succulent Lip Twin in Nude Lily. It took me a minute to figure out what this was. The tip looked like a spongy applicator and I accidentally scratched it because I didn't realize it was a solid lip/cheek stain. The clear cap opens the stain end, but the entire green cap unscrews to open the balm. The stain has a very balmy texture and it applies much lighter than it appears. The balm has a very loose, melty texture and applies about the same shade as in the tube. It's a little too nude/foundationy/warm for my skin tone. The scent is really strong and rosy, it reminds me of old Avon lipstick samples.

Lumi Lux Radiance Powder. This is so pretty! It looks really dark in the pan- almost like bronzer and blush together, but it applies really sheer. It's a perfect highlighter-brightener shade and it really warms up my face without looking obvious or blush-like. It's not very shimmery on the skin, either, which is a major plus for me.

Here I am wearing the Black Blue Endless Silky Eye Pen smudged on my lashline and on my waterline. Very sultry. See how subtle the blue tone is? Really brings out my brown eyes. I'm also wearing the Revlon Lilac Shimmer eyeshadow that came with my Grow Luscious mascara (which I'm also wearing), and let me describe it in three short words: MASSIVE GLITTER FALLOUT. But the liner is nice. Really nice. I'd buy it again if I had the choice.

I like the liner and the Radiance powder the best. I like how subtle, brightening and non-shimmery the powder is and I love the smooth formula and blueness of the liner. The balm/stain duo was just okay- it was the wrong color for me, a little too perfumey and not as moisturizing as I'd hoped it would be with a name like Succulent Lip Twin. Cute packaging on all the items. I'm curious about the rest of their line now. They have nail polish and perfume that I might have to check out!

(These were sent to me for review.)
