I've been looking for the perfect travel makeup palette, one that contains neutrals, bronzer, blush, and highlighter so I don't have to bring these products individually; believe it or not, I am exploring packing light for my next trips! I think I already found the perfect palette and it's Pixi by Petra's Book of Beauty; it's got the essentials I need, plus it comes in a very lightweight packaging. Perfect!


This handy palette has your 'barely there' makeup look covered with 8 shades of highlighter, blush, contour powder, and eye shadows that help you cop a natural look. There's also another version called Book of Beauty Contour Creator.


Top, L-R: Highlighters
Center, L-R: Blush, contouring powder
Bottom, L-R: Shimmer eye shadow duo and matte eye shadow duo

The palette has clear windows that allow you to see the shades and products in the palette. The shades are perfect for those with fair, light, medium, and medium warm (morena) skin tones.

 Here are the cheek products

1- beige champagne shade
2- White gold (beautiful shade!)
3- matte light peach
4- dirty beige with hint of shimmer
Shimmer eye shadows:

1- light champagne
2- bronze brown with gold shimmer

Matte eye shadows:

1- cream white
2- charcoal brown

The products yield light to heavy color coverage, feel quite soft and easy to apply, and apply well with minimal fall out. Nothing special with the shades, but they always come handy, especially when traveling. The rest of the products have pretty good quality; the eye shadows aren't as nice as the ones in the eye shadow palettes, but it's decent.


 Contouring Powder + Highlighter

I really like the white gold highlighter in this palette! It gives a nice, pale gold highlight and it's the kind that shows up effortlessly on warm skin; most highlighters don't show up on me or they look 'blah' on me and finally, here's one from Pixi that pops from warm skin naturally! The contouring powder, on the other hand, does it job decently.

Shimmer eye shadows

The products will hold up pretty well if used with primers.

I'm pretty happy with this palette because it's got just what I need to primp myself up when traveling.

10 Lovely Thoughts

  1. This is so nice lalo na for travelling para Hindi sangkaterba yung laman ng pouch.Saka handy.For sure magugustuhan to ng mga travellers na loves makeup.

  2. Super love this Palette talaga! Napakapigmented tsaka ang cream ng product mismo. Super B!

  3. I really do want to learn how to use make up properly hahaha but I still don't put anything on my face as I am still curing my pimples. The green color of the packaging look so inviting.

  4. This is so true, when you travel, you should pack light... Bring things in small sizes or yung multi functional stuff! I really want to get the box but my budget doesn't permits...

  5. Thanks for this review Ms. Martha. I have that palette too. Its included in their Perfectly Pixi by Glamourbox. Nagsubscribe ako kala ko kase more on skincare ang laman but I still love my box. Inadvance ko na bday gift ko kay husband. Wala na siyang nagawa. Tapos na eh. Hehehe

  6. I haven't swatch this personally...I just wish that charcoal brown can double as brow powder :D

  7. Ohhhh that white gold highlight looks really nice! :) The last Pixi by Petra curated box was such a good deal! But there are too many shimmery shades here for me to work with. I still think it's a great product to travel with because you would't be bringing so many palettes. :) In general do you prefer matte or shimmery eyeshadow looks, Ms. Martha? :)

  8. Pixi by Petra is such a nice brand. Their packaging is simple and giving the much deserved spotlight to the item itself. The pigmentation of their palette are always spot on. :) That's why I do not hesitate buying items from Pixi. :)

  9. perfect nga for travelling because of its size yet almost complete na yung make up. I have to agree with you, ganda ng highlighter of this palette. and sansa nga pwede din sa eyebrow yung matte na color brown hehe

  10. Me & my sister is into make up now and she's always travelling. This is perfect for her coz she's also a morena, will recommend this. I find the color/packaging of pixi simple but catchy in my eyes. Would love to try their products too.
