review: pixi mesmerizing mineral palette

There are brands I've heard a lot about - but haven't managed to try out for myself. Pixi was one of those brands....until now, that is. For years, I have heard beauty bloggers and makeup lovers rave about Pixi. Despite this, I had never gotten my hands on any of their products. When I came across the Mesmerizing Mineral Palette, I just had to have it. The colours spoke to me!

The palette I chose was the Copper Peach palette. It came with six shades, including a soft white, shimmery champagne colour, a light brown, sand shade, copper, and a bronzey colour. It also came with a sponge tip applicator. Honestly, the latter is a total waste as far as I'm concerned. I always wind up throwing them away. What I loved about this palette? The shades had a nice variety but they all work together. Let's take a closer look at the shades and swatches:

What are my initial thoughts? As I mentioned, I was immediately struck by the gorgeous shades and beautiful colour variety. So, the first thing I did was swatch! The texture of the eyeshadows was silky and smooth. It felt very luxurious. As for the shadows themselves? It was a hit or miss. The lightest shade was so fair it barely showed up at all. That was a letdown. The matte brown shade was another miss. While it looks quite dark in the pan, the colour payoff is quite weak. It turned out to be more of a light brown rather than a deeper shade.

Despite those disappointing shades, the rest? Gorgeous. Particularly the bottom two shades. The peachy and coppery shades were the standouts here, without a doubt. The pigmentation on those two specifically were fantastic, the texture was wonderful, and there was no fallout. Yes, those shades alone made the $12 CDN palette totally worth it. I absolutely love them.

This is a peek at the makeup look I created using the Pixi Mesmerizing Mineral Palette in Copper Peach. Let me know what you think!

This may have been my first time trying out products from Pixi, but I hope it won't be the last. Despite a few lackluster colours, I was very impressed with the quality and diverse range of products. This was a serious win for me!

Have you tried anything from Pixi? What do you think of the makeup?
