THE VERDICT:

Remember the time when Mineral Makeup Shadows were a very new concept and they came in loose form that are quite messy and really hard to use? While this form of MMU shadow is still around, the tedious days are almost over, thanks to these pressed mineral eyeshadows like Pixi’s Mesmerizing Mineral Palette.

PIXI MESMERIZING MINERAL PALETTE IN MESMERIZING GOLD IN DETAIL


This 6- piece eyeshadow palette has a mineral formula that claims to blur imperfections with its light- reflecting pigments, and comes in three color combinations to flatter a wide range of skin tones. Rich Gold is perfect for morenas and dark skin tones.

Ingredients

Swatches and review after the break!

Packaging is sleek and sturdy, and the palette’s cover has a different orientation compared to the standard eyeshadow palettes. I appreciate Pixi’s effort to introduce something new through their products, but the packaging confuses me especially if I’m in a hurry to do my makeup.

The product comes with a dual- ended sponge applicator, which is only useful when you don’t have regular eyeshadow brushes around-I’d still go for the latter any day for a more flawless application!

1- Dark Olive Green with gold shimmer
2- Dirty Green, frosted
3- Green Bronze, frosted
4- Gold, frosted
5- Bronze
6- Pale yellow gold

The shadows have a buttery, smooth texture, albeit they’re chalky and fallout is significant-it’s not a unique issue to this palette as I find that all MMU shadows exhibit these characteristics-they’re also best applied when wet or on top of a primer for better adherence onto the skin. Pigmentation is light to medium.


PIXI MESMERIZING MINERAL PALETTE IN RICH GOLD IN ACTION

All colors blended on my eyelid

All the eyeshadows have a frosted finish and they give my eyelids a smoother appearance. Staying power is poor due to its texture and you need to use an eye primer with this product every time. It's not for me because I don't really mind if my eyeshadows are Mineral or not, but if you prefer the former, you'll like this convenient product, plus it's pretty affordable for a set of 6!

4 Lovely Thoughts

  1. I would still buy this even if it won't last long enough. :) I super love the colors and how it bring tiny shimmers to the eyelids. It's affordable pa. I love palettes in unusual cases so as to divert from the common ones. I'll get this palette next week. I'm so excited to use it! :D That would be one of my Christmas gift to myself for working hard this year. :)

  2. Wow that's nice naman. Hopefully foundation will be next. I wanted to try anything that is mineral since it's good for oily skin. This reminds me the regular yellow box of water color. All of them looks opaque except number 6. It's very beautiful in your eyes. I don't mind if it's doesn't stay long, meron namang primer eh. As long as they're mineral.

  4. I would probably pass on this palette just because I have so much similar neutral color eyeshadows. This would be a good gift for someone starting out with makeup though. Good review.
