Pixi 20 Years Of Glow

Who'd thought that Pixi Beauty would already turn 20 years old!? This iconic beauty brand recently turned 20 and to celebrate the big 2-0 beauty bloggers and muas were sent this very thoughtful box full of their iconic bestselling products. How amazing!! Pixi was found by Petra Strand in 1999 and Petra's vision was to bring products out with skin loving ingredients and we definitely recognise the ever popular glow tonic that is loved by many. All products are cruelty free and contain healthy ingredients to give you a natural and youthful look.

"Created over 20 years ago and launched in our flagship boutique in Soho, London, Pixi has a loyal worldwide following thanks to its pure, awakening & skin-loving products that create a naturally radiant "just had a good night's sleep" look.

Pixi's mission is the same now as it was on the first day the Pixi store opened: simply to bring out the natural beauty in all women – to make women look like themselves, only better.

Flawless in a few fuss-free minutes – that's what Pixi is all about!"

It was Pixi's mission to simplify the whole beauty routine for women whilst creating natural make-up products to increase confidence as well as lasting all day. It started with essential products but now the brand has evolved to provide more make-up and skincare ranges that contain botanical infused formulas to suit everyone's skin type. The signature pale green packaging can be immediately recognised as a Pixi product and remains in many of the different lines.

So here is a run through of all of the seven bestselling Pixi products and my initial thoughts about each one.

Rose Ceramide Cream
This highly rich moisturiser contains Rose flower oil and Ceramides to provide hydration like no other. The cream has a lovely light rose fragrance and it is said to provide instant hydration, make the skin more supple and improve the skin's elasticity. Woah. I adore the pink packaging too! The pink tube even has roses illustrated on it. This moisturiser does it all and I can understand why it is so popular. Incase you are wondering what Ceramide does, it actually provides time release moisture which keeps your skin hydrated for longer.

Glow Tonic
Everyone knows this huge iconic product from Pixi and it was this product that made me become more fascinated with the Pixi brand. The PR package wouldn't of been complete without it. The Glow Tonic is a light exfoliating toner that removes impurities and excess oils that the cleanser missed. Since I have been using the glow tonic, I feel incomplete after cleansing if I don't use this because I am so used to using it and I feel like it really does brighten up my complexion, it contains 5% Glycolic Acid which buffs away dead skin cells which allows a much more renewed complexion to show through.

Glow Mist
I have to admit, I was really excited to try this out first out of the whole range from the box. This glow mist contains a huge 13 natural oils along with Aloe Vera, Fruit Extracts and Propolis. Woah! This is definitely more than just a setting spray. It hydrates and soothes the skin thanks to the added argan oil, can be used throughout the day and can be used to set your make-up. You can even use this in your hair to give it a glossy healthy sheen!!

Eye Reflection Eyeshadow Palette 
The perfect everyday 12 pan mineral eyeshadow palette. These aren't just your regular eyeshadows though. Each shade is buttery smooth with an amazing colour pay off. The eyeshadows are super blendable and gives a 3 dimensional look for brighter eyes. There's a mixture of mattes and shimmers. Easily create day to night looks with this palette. I am so glad I have this in my collection now because it is just so versatile to use.

Endless Silky Eye Pen
The ultimate long wearing eyeliner pencil to ever exist. this pencil is waterproof and smudgeproof and even contains vitamin E. I have a love hate relationship with eyeliner pencils because it either stays put or not but this one really gives the effect of using a liquid liner but with ease. You can easily create cat flicks with this pencil and the colour is very intense.

MatteLast Liquid Lip 
Who doesn't love a matte lip product and this just adorable! Everyone was sent the shade 'Pleasing Pink' and there are a total of 14 shades to choose from! The matte lip product contains Rosehip oil and Vitamin E to keep lips looking luscious. The doe foot is actually shaped like a petal and it actually ensures precise application so you don't need to use a lip liner or a lip brush.The colour pay off is commendable and I know I will be reaching out for this often.

LipLift Max
Lastly a lip plumper! The 'Petal Ice' lip plumper can be worn alone or on top of a lipstick. This is available in 5 shades. The unique formula is infused with peptides which add a burst of volume to make lips look fuller and Jojoba Oil to enhance moisture and hydrate lips. The Aloe and Chamomile work to soothe and soften the lips and the amazing mint flavour gives a cooling sensation. Basically everything you could ever want from a lip plumper. LOVE.
