What's New In Multi-Misting From Pixi Beauty Skintreats


Pixi Beauty has been just killing it in the skincare department over the past couple of years.  My honest opinion is that the nickname Skintreats was given to the carefully curated cruelty-free beauty products in Pixi's skincare line for good reason!  I want to tell you today about the beauty mists that are new to Pixi and definitely seem to be a treat to use.   The mists are 2.7 fl oz each and retail for $15 per mist.  Each may be used separately or together in a layering fashion to achieve maximum results. There are five mists total and I have four of them for you today.  If you prefer to watch youtube, I have a recent video where I reviewed the mists and showed how to use them.   You'll find that clip beginning at about 9:47.

The first product in the group is the Vitamin Wakeup Mist.  It is a vitamin boosting toner which is said to give a revitalized awakened effect to the complexion.  You can use it day or night but it should be the first thing after cleansing.  I use it in the morning as the first part of my routine.  The Vitamin Wakeup Mist has an orange blossom water base and contains other citric extracts, lavender, and arginine, (a skin healing and collagen promoting amino acid), among so many other good things that you can read on this ingredient list.


The spritz feels wonderful on my face and gives me a healthy hydrated look.  Vitamin C makes my skin glow while protecting it from environmental assaults.  The scent is both comforting and invigorating to me.  How I feel about the look of my skin using it combined with the energizing scent helps me to feel confident to face the day.  This is my very favorite of the mists.

Next in the lineup is the Hydrating Milky Mist.  It provides instant hydration using hyaluronic acid to plump skin by trapping the moisture in a protective layer.  The ingredients include black oat, multiple B vitamins, and linoleic acid.  The full paraben free ingredient list can be found here.


You can use the Hydrating Milky Mist throughout your day and evening to give instant hydration.  I use this about 30 seconds after I use the Vitamin Wakeup Mist.  They both absorb quickly and I am really happy with the results.  This spray is my second favorite and it's a close second to the first one.

If you're a Pixi fan, you might already be familiar with the Pixi Glow Mist.  Here is what I said about it in 2015 when it was released:  "Pixi Glow Mist is a great addition to the line.  It contains 13 different oils in addition to propolis, aloe vera and fruit extracts.!!  It is literally loaded with great things.  And it has a clean fresh scent which I really like while absorbing quickly.  I have really dry skin so this works very well for me.  Use it before makeup to hydrate, protect and nourish your skin.  Use it after makeup to set it and provide a natural glow while protecting your skin and makeup application.  Use it anytime to feel refreshed or to add a glow.  The bottle is travel sized at under 3 fl ounces so take it on an airplace with you to remain hydrated and look fresh when you touch down.  Be sure to shake this a little before using to mix all the oils."



I don't use this as often as I used to.  I feel like my skin already looks so incredibly healthy from the first two sprays that I don't feel a need to add much more.  Also, I test a lot of skincare products, including facial oils, so I had to shelve this one for a bit.  However, I do use it regularly on my body to maintain glow and hydration.

The fourth Skintreats spray that I have is the Makeup Fixing Mist.  This mist is designed to be used after makeup to keep it set in place and prevent creasing, melting and moving.  You can spritz it on a brush to add intensity when using a powder product such as an eyeshadow or highlighter that you want to pop.  It contains green tea, rose water and these other fine ingredients.


When I first used the Makeup Fixing Mist, it became my favorite makeup setting spray.  It does what it claims and it felt like a skin treat on application.  It is hydrating, lightweight and smells fresh..

I really truly look forward to using the mists each day.  I'm hoping to pick up the Sun Mist soon and add that to my multi-misting routine for skin protection.  I find these mists to be excellent in performance and am so glad they were added to the Pixi Skintreats family.  My skin is looking brighter, healthier, more hydrated and has a smoother surface than before they arrived at my house.

Pixi by Petra Beauty products can be purchased in Pixi boutiques, Pixi online, and both instore and online at Target.  You can keep up with Pixi by following their blog, and on their social media channels:  Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and youTube.

Have you tried any of the mists?  What do you use to achieve a healthy glow?

New Pixi Spring 2015 Makeup, Skincare and Amethyst Amore Nail Polish Review and Swatches


Glow Mist, Amethyst Amore, Olive Gold, Silver Glow, Lucent Glow


My spring started off with a pop and a hippity-hop in my step when I received the Spring 2015 cosmetics box from Pixi Beauty. It had some great new items that I just couldn't wait to try!!!  This is a really exciting box and even contained candy!!!  It was quite the traveler, too.  It went to my former residence 2500 miles away before it found its way to my new house.  I'm so glad it did.

I don't want to bore you with all the health drama of my family, but it has been quite the couple of months, with no real end in sight.  I had a month long pneumonia caused by cigarette smoke exposure, (my 3rd in a year and a half!!), and tried to keep on top of things with my husband and child at the same time.  It's been overwhelming and most of the time I've been exhausted.  I have a new batch of allergies that have come with my new location, unfortunately, and am trying to get a handle on those.   I'm not making rapid headway and it's held my blog progress back.  BUT...I'm sick of being sick and laying around and I just want to get started telling you about all these things I've discovered lately!!  So...onto the show...

Pixi Beauty Glow Mist, ($15), is a great addition to the line.  It contains 13 different oils in addition to propolis, aloe vera and fruit extracts.!!  It is literally loaded with great things.  And it has a clean fresh scent which I really like while absorbing quickly.  I have really dry skin so this works very well for me.  Use it before makeup to hydrate, protect and nourish your skin.  Use it after makeup to set it and provide a natural glow while protecting your skin and makeup application.  Use it anytime to feel refreshed or to add a glow.  The bottle is travel sized at under 3 fl ounces so take it on an airplace with you to remain hydrated and look fresh when you touch down.  Be sure to shake this a little before using to mix all the oils.

Pixi swatches, lip, nails, eyeshadow, skincare

The two space age looking items on the left of the above picture are Pixi Fairy Dusts in the colors Silver Glow and Golden Olive, ($10).  They are a loose powder color that can be used in any way you can imagine.  You can use them as eye shadow or mix them with various other colors for use on the cheeks, lips or body.  Mix a little with moisturizer to create a light glow.

The Fairy Dusts have a super cool applicator.  It picks up just the right amount for eyes and is easy to use to apply them.  If you want, you can use a brush or fingers as well.  Below is a picture of Silver Glow.  The addition of an applicator is fantastic for makeup-messaphobes like me.  I don't like when my makeup gets messy and this applicator is great to control my pigment dust fear.  :)  If you love pigments, you are going to be estatic over the smooth application of the Fairy Dusts!!!

 

I purchased the holiday Fairy Dust stacker this winter and if you're at all like me, you might wonder if the Golden Olive is similar to the holiday set.  You'll see below that while it is close, it's really not the same.  Hallelujah, no repeats!!!!



The fairy dust that is second from the bottom in the holiday set is the closest to Golden Olive.  However, Golden Olive has a golden tone to it where the other is more of a straight up taupe.


Golden Olive Fairy Dust is descibed as a vintage gilded moss shimmer.
Silver Glow is a satin silver with a lavender gold sheen.

I have swatched both next to the Tinted Brilliance Balm, ($14),  in the new spring 2015 color Lucent Glow, which is described as a luminous rose gold shimmer in a translucent base.  You can see in the swatch on the right that is is a glow with some pink and gold to it.  This is my fourth or fifth Tinted Brilliance Balm and I just adore these.  The Lucent Glow doesn't give much color on the lips, but I think it's my favorite.  I could swear it plumps my lips!!  The look fuller and just spectacular while remaining hydrated.  It's really great for a drop of sexy over any other lip item or for fantastic lush lips when used alone.

With my arm at a slightly different angle below, you can see that you'll mostly see the wet glow with hints of the gold and pink.

The final item I'm going to show you today is Pixi's nail color for February 2015, Amethyst Amore, ($8).  

swatches, review

Amethyst Amore draws it's name from the birthstone of February.  This nail color, however, has more of a blue than a true amethyst stone.  It's nearly a blurble in most lights, while being definitely blue with a lot of purple tone to it.  The color of the month nail polishes are only found online at Pixi Beauty's website.

This is a great spring color for me!!  Check it out....it works so well with my favorite shorts!!


And behind my hand in the next picture is my favorite beach towel.


How great does it look by the pool?

Spring 2015


Like your most comfortable jeans, Amethyst Amore goes with literally anything!!!  It's great on fingers or toes.  It's bright and cheery and will pull you from the dreariness of winter and hopping on into the promise of spring.  Go get one now!  You need it.

AND......by the way....this is a ONE COAT WONDER.  Few and far between are nail polishes that are complete with just one coat.  And when I find one, I always use two coats anyway because I am just a two-coater kind of girl.  HOWEVER, for the first time ever, folks, FIRST TIME, I used just one coat of Amethyst Amore in the manicure you see and was totally satisfied with it.

ONE COAT!!!!!!!!!!!!

AND....drum roll, please....this polish absolutely DOES NOT STAIN!!!!!! Perfection!!

You can find Pixi products on their own website, in Target stores and on Target online.  Not all special edition Pixi products will be available at Target but many are.  

I just love Pixi's products.  I feel so honored to be able to review for them.  Why?  Great quality!!  Fun products and I just feel like a Princess when I  am able to say that I'm wearing Pixi.  Don't you??

What kind of spring items and activities are you looking forward to this year?
