New In From Pixi by Petra #2



Happy Friday all! I hope you're looking forward to the weekend ahead (I know I am!). So last week a pretty snazzy parcel landed on my doorstep, courtesy of the amazing, Pixi by Petra. If you're a regular round these parts, you'll know I'm a huge fan of the brand, and was lucky enough to be sent a package full of skincare (and chocolate!) back in the summer. This time round I was treated to a range of the A/W Pixi cosmetics, and holy guacamole, they.are.serious.


The item I was most giddy (yes, giddy) about when opening the box was this gorgeous Mattelustre Lipstick. Plum Berry* (£14) is a deep berry red (as the name would suggest) and the perfect shade for this time of year. Rock with a bare face, a strong brow or even a smokey eye, it's capable of complementing a whole host of  different looks. Though it's on the cool side of things, it's one that'll suit pretty much every skin tone. Long-lasting, matte and pretty packaging to match - basically, I'm in love.


If brighter shades are more your thing then you will seriously dig the Mattelustre Lipstick in Pure Fuchsia* (£14). Again a matte formula, this one's ideal for days you're not looking your best to really add some life back into your face. Throw on a pair of shades (how awesome is this weather though?), your best pout and you're good to go. 


A gal can never have too many eye products in her stash, and this Cat Eye Ink* (£12) is well worth a mention. Not only is it a seriously intense black, but the slanted felt tip makes application easy as pie for liner noobs like myself. Just make sure you have a waterproof makeup remover at hand come bedtime as this stuff doesn't.budge.


Finally, it's time to talk brow. Though I religiously reach for my Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz, I get through it pretty swiftly. Luckily for me, the Endless Brow Gel Pen* (£14) is all kinds of awesome. I use the shade, Medium, a neutral ash brown which matches my hair rather accurately. A lot of brow products fail to get the whole ashy tone right, but this manages to get it spot on. The gel-textured pencil gives just the right amount of product and lasts all day. If you're looking for an extra boost through any unruly sparse areas or are after a fuller brow, this is your BFF. 


Are you a fan of the Pixi by Petra? I'm very excited to say that as of this week it's now stocked in Marks and Spencer!
