Pixi Beauty - Hello Rose! Kit - Review and Swatches *

It's been a while since I've reviewed anything from Pixi, you can see my last post here. This month's focus is on achieving that Spring Time glow with the Hello Rose Kit that's newly launched from Pixi Beauty. 

This set includes:
1) Glow Booster in PinkPearl – sheer pearly pink, 
2) Beauty Blush Duo (Rose Gold) – Sheer pink sheen white gold highlight, and lastly the
3) LipLift Max (Sheer Rose)


How to use the kit, as recommended on their site: 
Step 1: Apply Glow Booster to the skin or add it to your base to create a beautiful sheen
Step 2: Use blush to add colour to the apples of cheeks and the highlight to achieve a glowing finish from the Beauty Blush Duo
Step 3: Wear the lip plumping gloss alone or over your favorite lip color

Thoughts on the kit:
My favorite product would have to me the Glow Booster - it gives a beautiful golden pink sheen to your skin. You can either mix it into your foundation to give a dewy finish, or you can pat it on your cheekbones for the highlighted look. If you want to make an even bigger impact, you can add some extra powder highlight over the Glow Booster on your cheekbones.

The lip plumping gloss, though a plumping gloss, does not burn your lips and tingle like a lot on the market that I know of. It is however a little tacky so your hair will get caught in it :) I really liked the mauvey tone of this gloss it allowed for the look to be like a "my lips but better" feel.

The blush in the duo pan in my honest opinion is a bit disappointing to me personally (even though I believe you get a full size product), as you can see in the swatches above, it is VERY faint in color so it didn't show up on me. That is with a few swipes too. I know I do have a tan since I came back from vacation, so it might work for the paler skin girls. The highlight side of the duo pan though is GORGEOUS and that is really pigmented! I swatched the highlight first, then the blush, and then the blush and highlight together on the bottom. You can see that the blush does end up washing out the color of the highlight a bit when blended together so I think the true beauty is to just use the highlight on its own.
I do believe that this kit allows you the chance to try out a variety of products offered from Pixi Beauty at about $10 cad for each product.

Until next time, XO - M
