MAKEUP | My Favourite Pixi Blushes

I feel like a broken record this year with my saying "I wish I had discovered this/these earlier!", but I have actively been trying to use what I have in my collection this 2019 which are just far too many untrieds whether they be press samples or things I have purchased on my own. When it comes to Pixi Beauty, I have focused a lot on their skincare and with good reason (because it's awesome and innovative), but they actually have some fantastic makeup too! This month I made a personal goal to dive more into Pixi when it came to makeup and I am so glad I did because I have been quite surprised at how much I have been liking everything! For the sake of Marie Kondo organization, I have decided to group "like with like" starting with my favourite Pixi blushes!

The Book of Beauty - Touch of Blush* is an easy one to like because just looking at the shades, you have your mattes, multi-dimensional shimmers and your bronzers/contours. Though I rarely contour, the four blushes always manage to represent a mood I may be feeling whether it'd be dusty rose for "I'm too tired to choose" or an intense bright watermelon pink to perk up my skin when I'm wearing a darker lipstick. 

The powders are very fine and though I don't find these blushes have incredible staying power for a full work day, it's hard for me to say whether that is the fault of my foundation finally breaking down at the end of a 10 hour day or the blush itself. Overall, I found the choice of blush shades in this palette skin-enhancing and easy to wear.

Ah, the new PixiGlow Cakes*! Coming in two perfectly gradient balanced shades, these palettes give skin a radiant glow while creating a hint of colour. At first I wasn't sure how the brown "ends" of the palette would translate once I dragged my brush across, but these glowcakes are like baked witchcraft. I get the most perfect highlight on the apples of my cheeks PLUS actual colour too! Pink Champagne has been my almost daily jam this month and I don't see it stopping anytime soon!

I had to look up who Aspyn Ovard was. I know that Pixi tends to do a lot of "influencer" (*cringe*, but must use this term) collaborations and I'm just not cool/millennial enough to keep up with who is who in the under 25 world. All I know is that this Glow-y Powder in Rome Rose* is awesome. It's a more pink version of the Pink Champagne glowcake I love and is hella pigmented! When I put this on, my cheeks literally become "headlights of highlight"!
