Back to School Beauty with PIXI

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

Back to school time has always been an exciting time for me.  Growing up, this time of year signified a fresh new start.  You know, new wardrobe additions, fresh new cut, beauty tweaks!  Although I'm no longer in school, I sort of still am... as a teacher!  So lucky for me, I still get to enjoy this special time just as much as when I was of school age.  I still love to make a few changes to my beauty routine.  Here's how I started my 'back to school' season!

As a loyal Tar-jay shopper, I'm becoming more and more smitten with Pixi beauty.  Everything from their packaging to amazing quality make makes me fall in love every time I try something new!  This fall, Pixi introduces a trio of gorgeousness that includes the NEW Pixi Brilliance Balm in Nearly Naked, Crayon Combo Softly Smoky and Perfection Palette.

Perfection Palette: A gorgeous palette of super flattering hues creates a wide-awake effect that enhances and adds a subtle glow.  This stunner includes 16 eye shades, 3 cheek powders, highlighter and bronzer.  I'm so smitten by this gorgeous compilation of perfectly diverse shadows and cheek colors.  The colors apply seamlessly.  They're well pigmented and simply beautiful!  I love the portability of this palette.  Simply toss this beauty in your bag for easy touch ups... though I doubt you'll need any.  My look lasted all day!


Crayon Combo Softly Smoky:  I recently featured this gorgeousness in my current fall faves list!  This double sided pencil lines and defines your eyes for an effortless smoky eye.  Its super-smooth, high performance formula is waterproof, can be used on inner rim, and has rich color payoff.  It also easily blends for a soft-focus effect!  This crayon combo is perfection!

Brilliance Balm in Nearly Naked:  It's so nice to pair a smoky eye with a nude lip.  This balm is the perfect marriage to the two previously mentioned pieces of this collection.  Seriously, Brilliance Balm is packed with lip-loving ingredients!  This glossy gel balm protects and hydrates lips instantly.  After the balm wears off, lips are left tinted with a flattering hue.  It's packed with jojoba oil, peptides, vitamin E and A that nourishes and protects.  Most importantly, it feels uhhh-mazing on my lips... period!

Dual Sharpener:  This must-have tool was specifically designed to fit Crayon Combo, Endless Silky Eye Pen and Lid Last Shadow Pen, but also works for most standard size pencils.  Be sure to add this to your beauty tools repertoire! 

So lets chat!  What's your favorite PIXI beauty product?  Do you own any of these?  What are your thoughts?

Thank you SO MUCH for reading! XOXO Carla - FMM
