Why you need to try Pixi.

I know I'm definitely not alone in the fact I enjoy sampling a good amount of beauty brands to discover new favourites. Whether we're talkin' skincare or makeup, I've never really been one to just stick to numero uno for all.

But, if I was to do just that, Pixi would be where it's at. If you've been reading my blog for a while now, you'll know I've been a big old fan of the brand for a LONG time (check out my previous posts mentioning some absolute staples). You may know them as the creating the crème de la crème of acid toners in the form of Glow Tonic*, or maybe even from their cult Double Cleanse* collab with skincare guru, Caroline Hirons. Either way, they sure do know their sh*t when it comes to b-e-a-uty.

I think my first experience with the brand may well have been with their Glow Tonic (I mean, can you blame a gal, the stuff is raved about far and wide), but I quickly became hooked and my collection expanded with everything from mascaras to eyeshadow palettes. I don't say this a lot, but I genuinely haven't come across a product I dislike in their ever-expanding range.

Pixi Beauty

Established over 10 years ago, the brand prides itself on creating beautiful products that give users a natural, radiant glow, and its ethos is designed in mind of those who want to both feel and look their best without requiring a big chunk of their time.

Of course, alongside the neutral palettes, one-swipe toners and speedy spritz, their are a few beauty treats that require a little more effort spent on them. Whether it's a bold lip, a 15 minute mask or a bright pop of colour on the eyes, essentially, Pixi have you and your makeup dreams covered.

It'd be pretty bloody hard to narrow down all of my recommendations from the brand, so to keep the length of this post manageable, I'm gonna go ahead and give you my top 10...

1. Face Mists*: Without a doubt, these are a forever staple for moi. I always carry at least one around with me so I can top-up and keep cool throughout the day. From energising and SPF, to glow-giving and makeup-setting, there's definitely at least one you need in your routine. Me? Yes, I have them all because they're so damn good!

2. Endless Silky Eye Pen*: Whether you're looking to experiment with your eyeliner or looking for a new classic tone, the Endless Silky Eye Pen is a good'n. The gel formula comes in a whopping 22 shades, and glides on perfectly upon application without the need for frequent touchups. Absolute winner.

3. Lower Lash Mascara*: Who knew a bottom lash mascara was such a makeup essential? Pixi, apparently. If you constantly look in the mirror and find yourself being greeted with panda smudges under your eyes, you need this. It retails for £11, but if you fancy treatin' yo'self then I'd recommend snapping up the Eye Accent Kit which ft. this and the rather handy clear Brow Tamer (which retails on its own for £12), for just £16.

4. Lengthy Fiber Mascara*: Keeping up with the whole eye area theme, we have the Lengthy Fiber Mascara. I don't have the longest lashes in the land, however with this, I can pretend that I do. As the name suggests, the fibers in the mascara (temporarily) attach to the lashes to give an elongated effect. And who doesn't want that, right? Even better, vitamin E, panthenol, and chamomile extract all do their thing to keep things strengthened and protected. The only slight let down for me is the fact it doesn't hold a curl all day, but with my poker straight set, that's a rarity anyway.

5. Glow Mud Mask*: I love me a good face mask, and boy, is this good. I definitely need to snap up another tube of this as I used it in a flash! After just 15 minutes my skin looks brighter and feels smoother (which is great news for lil Miss Dry Skin over here). Another thing I love is how easy this is to remove. Which may make me sound ridiculously lazy, but how frustrating is it having to quite literally scrub at your face in an attempt to rinse off a mask? With this, just a few swipes with a flannel, and you're sorted.

6. 24k Eye Elixir*: Oh god this is just SO good. I'd never tried this kind of thing prior to Pixi, but my life (especially on those early AF mornings) has been changed forever. Pixi describe this as "an anti-fatigue peptide serum that that massages away puffiness as it smooths and refreshes the eye area." They hit the nail on the head, really. Puffy, sleepy eyes, are fixed in a flash. A* product.

7. Double Cleanse*: I mean, let's be real here; obviously I was going to mention this. If you're new to the world of double-cleansing, or maybe you're not all that keen on having cleansers clog up space in your bathroom, then this is quite literally the dream. This Caroline Hirons collab is a 2-in-1 cleanser which comprises of both a solid cleansing oil and a luxe cleansing cream. Maybe not so much for A.M. use, but this is a real gem when it comes to an eve. Filled to the brim with lots of lovely ingredients, it removes makeup, provides a deep clean for the skin, and then some. Free from Parabens and fragrance, this is one a lot of people will get along with.

8. Rose Oil Blend*: This is such a rich and hydrating face oil. Oh, and fyi, it smells all kinds of amazing, too. Although it's designed to be used morning and night, I personally find this really shines in the morn'. I like to mix 1-2 drops with moisturiser to help up the glow factor, and it makes the final finish to my base of choice look a whole lot smoother and less, er, dry-looking (ew).

9. Flawless Beauty Primer*: If you're wanting to hold on to your base longer than 5 minutes (who isn't?), a primer is of course a must-have feature in your makeup bag. If you long for that, 'lit from within' look, with added hydration and longevity, you really can't go wrong with this. It has a slight pink undertone, but don't fear, this blends away and you're left with a radiant looking complexion. Better still, it boasts anti-aging and skin fortifying benefits, so you don't need to fret over layering up the makeup.

10. Pixi Pretties*: If you read my #PixiPretties post last year, you'll already be familiar with the amazing collaborations Pixi announced. I (naturally) loved everything that was released, but the palettes may have been the standout for me, however this wasn't much of a shocker as Pixi palettes are always top-notch. If you're in the market for eyeshadow, the 'ItsEyeTime palette*' by ItsJudyTime is an a definite go-to. Twelve, very 'now' shades that boast serious pigment and zero fallout. Yet another thumbs up from me.

Pixi Beauty Brand

So, just in case the above didn't give it away, Pixi is 100% a brand you need to try for yourself (if you haven't already, of course).  Whatever your skin type, whatever your beauty tastes, they'll have something for you. Pixi also do not test on animals which is of course, excellent.

Are you a fan of Pixi? I'd love to know if you've tried any of the above or any product recommendations you may have!
