Happy Monday lovelies! Is everyone ready for a little peek at springtime? Well you’re in luck, because The Makeup Examiner was privy to Pixi Beauty’s Spring 2014 collection and a spring look … “Pretty Perky,” which was created by Petra Strand herself and the look is seriously perfect for everyone!
Before we get to the quick, 5-step look, let’s check out the preview of Pixi Beauty for Spring 2014. To kickoff Pixi Spring 2014, Pixi Beauty is introducing H20 Skin Tint ($24), available in Cream, Nude, Warm. The water-based tinted face gel evens out skin tone, has buildable coverage and an amazing lightweight feel. H20 Skin Tint is full of super nourishing ingredients like green tea, rose water, English chamomile, and lavender. TME’s favorite thing about this skin tint is the convenient tube-pump delivery!
Natural Brow Duo ($16) in two new shades, Deep Brunette and Soft Black is a TME favorite. Legit, it took minutes to obtain the perfect brow. The multi-purpose brow duo has a waterproof angled pencil for precise application on one end, and a tinted soft-hold gel infused with nourishing Vitamin B on the other end. Pixi Natural Brow Duo is absolutely going into TME’s Makeup Vault!
Hydrating Cheek Sheen Stick ($16), available in three shades, Gold Glow, Touch of Tan and Angel Pink is a sheer, long-wear, hydrating cheek color in a pop-up stick. Cheek Sheen offers a fresh and natural flush of color with a simple dab and blend application. The long-lasting formula eliminates need for touch ups and Cheek Sheen is formulated to give hydration to dry skin, but is not the least bit greasy.
Mesmerizing Mineral Palettes ($12 each) are gorgeous color coordinated palettes, each in on-trend Spring 2014 hues. The palette shades are Copper Peach, Emerald Gold, and Plum Quartz that contain six complementing shades. As with other Pixi eyeshadows, the palettes are rich, silky, and highly pigmented.
Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen ($12) is introducing a new shade for Spring 2014, BronzeBeam, which brings the total jewel-toned hues available to 11 waterproof, long-wear, smudge-free shades. The Endless Silky Eye Pen is gentle on eyes and the unique formula gives the intense color of a liquid liner with the ease of a pencil application. Apply with short strokes and blend quickly. Other shades include, EmeraldGold, CopperGlow, SageGold, BlackNoir, BlackBlue, BlackTulip, BlackCocoa, DeepPlum, CaféGold and OysterGlow.
Pixi Beauty Shea Butter Lip Balm ($8) is available in six lip-loving shades: Comfort Clear, Honey Nectar, Natural Rose, Pixi Pink, Coral Crush, and Ripe Raspberry. The lightweight formula is packed with shea butter and vitamin E and the shades are phenomenal. Another TME favorite!
Rounding out Pixi’s Spring 2014 preview is Pixi Nail Color ($8), which is toluene, formaldehyde and DBP free and available in three new must-have shades, Sizzling Sunshine, Lime Lustre, Oh So Orange. These nail shades are saturated with color with and provide a high gloss finish.

Pretty Perky by Petra:
- Smooth H2O Skin Tint onto complexion, starting at the center of face and blending outward for naturally perfected & hydrated skin. Layer if more coverage is desired.
- Define eyes by applying a thin line of Lash Line Ink following upper lash line. Keep the side of felt tip applicator flat against skin for easy application.
- Add 2-3 layers of Large Lash Mascara in Bold Black for maximum volume.
- Perk up complexion by dabbing Cheek Sheen in Angel Pink to apples of cheeks. Blend up and out for a seamless effect.
- Finish off by smoothing Shea Butter Lip Balm in Pixi Pink onto lips – this will keep lips deeply moisturized and tinted with a fresh pink shade.
Remember lovelies -- Ugly is not a physical flaw, but is of one’s character … choose beautiful!
