I recently became a brand ambassador for Pixi by Petra beauty. So expect to see monthly product reviews from this brand. I didn’t realize you could shop Pixi at Target. It’s such a great company and I love their mission “simply to bring out the natural beauty in all women – to make women look like themselves, only better.” I have since purchased the translucent powder, which is great for face baking and comparable to high-end options such as Tarte Amazonian clay pressed setting powder, but at a better price point.
This Month’s Pixi by Petra Products
- Lengthy Fiber Mascara I received this mascara in my previous shipment. If you’re looking for a fiber mascara this is a great option. Your lashes will look super long and full. As mentioned before, be careful, as you don’t want to over do it and look like a furry animal.
- Endless Brown Gel (medium) I recently got into taking better care of my brows and am obsessed with the Anastasia Beverly Hills eyebrow pencil. So I was disappointed that I didn’t receive the pencil in black. After reading the reviews on the Pixi site, the overall verdict is that the application is nice and easy to use if you can get the color to match. However, once you have to sharpen the pencil, it was a unanimous fail. All the reviews mention how the pencil is hard to sharpen and it is left unusable when you do.
- Endless Silky Eye Pencil I was excited to receive this one since I just ran out of my usual eyeliner and am looking for something new, one that doesn’t bleed. This liner claims to be waterproof, long-wearing, no-smudge, no-budge. Sounds like a dream. First off I love the consistency, it’s so smooth and goes on like butter. It stays on all day but still bleeds a bit, but for $12 I’ll definitely be picking up the black option. This pencil is better than most I’ve tried.
- Shea Butter Lip Balm (Ripe Raspberry) I love the idea of treating your lips while simultaneously applying color. I am super picky when it comes to lip balms and I hate anything sticky. This is not sticky and the color is beautiful. It’s super pigmented and leaves my lips with a bright raspberry hue and provides great moisture to my lips. I am excited to try the other colors.
