The Lip & Shine in No.1 Pale Petal which is a soft baby pink shade is a handy way to carry a lip liner AND a lipstick with you. I hate spending ages searching for a suitable liner for whatever lipstick I'm wearing that day. The lip liner is a great match for my lips and enhances them without looking too 'done'. The lipstick was actually alot creamier than I initially thought it would be. It contains Vitamin E and C and didn't dry out my lips or highlight any dry patches. The shade is really pretty and is very easy to wear on an everyday basis. It's the kind of shade you can just apply and go, without having to fuss over it too much. The lipstick didn't have amazing staying power but it lasted a good 3 hours without fading too much. That's ok in my book as I don't own many lipsticks that last all day.
The Voluptuous Mascara claims to nourish your lashes whilst creating thick, elongated, healthy lashes. It has a long rubber wand which I never associate with creating volume. These types of wands tend to be great at lengthening but not so great at creating voluminous lashes. The best volumising mascara I have ever tried is the Rouge Bunny Rouge Amplitude Mascara and that one has a big chunky natural bristle wand which is perfect for grabbing every lash and making the most of what you have. The Pixi Voluptuous Mascara goes on without clumping, it gives a strong colour to the lashes and defines them, whilst lengthening them. BUT I didn't find that my lashes look any thicker which was a bit of a disappointment really. I like the sleek silver packaging but as an everyday mascara that I can rely on to add some va-va-voom to my blonde lashes? It just didn't cut the mustard for me.
Have you guys tried any of the Pixi cosmetics? What did you think?
