Pixi's Terrific Trio
I've been obsessing over this powerful trio by Pixi! I simply love how these products instantly brighten my complexion without overpowering my skin.  Before Pixi sent these over, I had actually purchased the Redness Reducing Primer because, well, as you all know, this is one of my major skin issues!  While it wasn't love at first swipe initially, the more I applied, the more I became a fan. You see, you must keep in mind that this is a primer and not a full coverage foundation.   It's meant to create a wonderful canvas for your makeup application.  It helps to even your skin out and certainly reduces much of the horrid redness i have going on.  This primer is green which balances out the redness in the skin.  No worries, this completely blends into your skin!  A fun little trick that I learned is to keep it in the fridge.  I find that it really calms my oh so sensitive skin... oh and bonus, it feels soooo nice! Move over Smashbox primer, you've been officially replaced!
OK Pixi's Eye Brightening kit has me doing a happy dance!  Seriously, this quad keeps me looking as though I've slept for 10 hours even when most nights, i'm lucky if I get 6!  This is not a thick, overpowering concealer, but you can bet it covers!  I love dabbing the green on my dark circles and watching them disappear right before my eyes!  Literally!  A few dabs of concealer over that and I instantly look awake and ready to face the day.  The highlighter is perfection!  In fact, I've used it so much that sadly, this morning, I actually saw the bottom of the container!  What?!  That says a lot for a beauty blogger with enough makeup to last a lifetime!  This calls for another trip to Target for a Pixi run....  tough job but somebody's gotta do it!
Pixi's Crayon Combo Eye Shadow Pencil in Wide Awake is simply uhhhh-mazing!  I use this anywhere on my face that I want to highlight... the inner corner of my eyes, my cupid's bow above my lips, chin, right below my eye brows... you name it!  Interestingly, if you follow Pixi on Instagram, they posted a super cool picture of someone illustrating a technique called 'cat whiskers highlighter trick'!  If you have a moment, you should definitely check it out!  Very informative and it WORKS! 
If you haven't checked out this powerful trio, you must do so stat!  It works and it won't break the bank!
 Thank you SO MUCH for reading! XOXO Carla -FMM
