Three perfect-for-spring products for only $22!
It’s springtime at we heart this and we are putting away all the dark colors of fall and winter and pulling out the peaches and the pinks. Perfect for spring is the Pixi Hello Rose! Set.
This lovely pink-hued trio is exactly what this girl needed to step into spring. This gorgeous set includes their Beauty Blush Duo in Rose Gold, LipLift Max gloss in Sheer Rose and their Glow Booster luminizing lotion in PinkPearl. Who needs rose-colored glasses when you can wear rose-colored makeup? (Seriously, I want to know…)
The Rose Gold Beauty Blush Duo is a screw top compact housed in their signature minty green plastic. One side of this pot is gorgeous medium rose blush with some sheen and the other side is an icy pink highlighter shade.
My first thought upon seeing this duo is going to be perfect not only for cheeks but eyes, too. Seriously, ladies–this was multitasking love for me! The blush is not extremely pigmented, which is great because for those of you who are color shy, you can truly build the sheer blush to your desired level. The highlighter pan is great for adding an extra pop to cheekbones and at the brow bones for a mini eyelift. The medium rose shade is extremely subtle as an eye shadow and utterly natural. Love, love, love!
The LipLift Max gloss in Sheer Rose is just that–an extremely sheer rose shade. Swatched, you can see the dusty rose hue. But on my lips, it’s almost colorless. Perfect for adding some shine to other lip colors. This gloss is housed in a square plastic tube and has a doe foot applicator.
The gloss tingles a little bit (to plump your pout) and smells like peppermint and some unidentifiable herb. I’ve never used a lipgloss that felt invigorating before, but this definitely qualifies! I need a bit more color, so I pressed some of the Rose Gold blush into the gloss and it gave me just the right amount of tint and changed the consistency to that of a lipstick. Seriously, so pretty!
Pixi’s Glow Booster in PinkPearl is a “glow-enhancing lotion” that hydrates, corrects uneven skintone and restores the youthful glow that many of us spend a small fortune to maintain. It also contains Vitamins A and E, which are anti-aging and nourishing. This is a great product to transform your regular foundation into a tinted moisturizer. Just mix a dab of this into your foundation and presto change-o you have achieved that gorgeous sheer makeup look that is perfect for warmer weather!
Overall, Pixi’s Hello Rose! Set is probably the most fun I’ve had with makeup in a long while–everything was designed to play with. I think this would be great for you makeup mavens looking to streamline or for younger women just getting into color cosmetics. I seriously can’t believe you can get all three pieces for $22–I’ve regularly spent that much just on a lipgloss! I highly recommend you give this trio a try.
