Last year, I received a couple of pretty useful makeup products from Pixi By Petra; for the record, these weren't exactly called Fall Collection 2016; I just did so to categorize them and naming them all in the post title bar is impossible LOL. But if it were a collection, it would be one of my favorites from the brand because Pixi made me realize that these are the makeups I never knew I needed!
PIXI BY PETRA FALL 2016 COLLECTION IN DETAIL
Lower Lash Mascara ingredients
Lower Lash Mascara comes with a specially designed wand to coat all lashes on the lower lash line while minimizing smudges and eye pokes. It only comes in one shade, Black.
Endless Silky Eye Pen in Greige is a new color. More about this favorite lower lash pencil liner of mine HERE.
Cat Eye Ink ingredients
Cat Eye Ink comes with a small slanted felt tip applicator; it's sturdy and not as flimsy as regular felt tip applicators, but tends to be a bit scratchy on the lids. The slanted tip helps create a winged effect quickly and easily.
Multi Balm Cheek and Lip Colour
Multi Balm is a multipurpose product that adds colour to the cheeks and lips; pigmentation is light to medium, has a hydrating, moisturizing texture, and blends onto the skin easily and naturally due to the formula. Left is for contouring and right is a blush.
PIXI BY PETRA FALL 2016 COLLECTION IN ACTION
Cat Eye Ink yields medium to heavy pigmentation; it's not waterproof, but I find that it lasts the whole day with minimal smudging. As for the slanted applicator, use the pointy tip to create a flick on your eye liner look with a gentle hand, but don't press it onto the skin too hard because it's small and you will end up creating thick, rounded lines.
Endless Silky Eye Pen in Greige on lower lash line and Lower Lash Mascara on lower lashes
These two are my most favorite in the bunch; Endless Silky has always been a favorite of mine and Greige is a more natural alternative to Black eye liners. Lower Lash Line is a new favorite because it makes application of mascara on this part of my eyes much more precise. The mascara has good staying power, although I can't say that it's waterproof.
Multi Balm (Contour)
Multi Balm creates soft, shadow effects on the face; perfect for you if you don't need heavy contouring to begin with.
Multi Balm (Blush)
I have applied the blush on my cheeks; however, it's just too light for my skin tone and doesn't come off as pigmented as in the hand swatch.
The balms are quite moisturizing so I wouldn't recommend it to oily skin; for dry skin, it is perfect because the formula will soothe dry areas and keep it moisturized during wear. Given the formula of the balms, I would definitely recommend that use set them with complementing makeup products or a setting powder.
Among the products, I would highly recommend Lower Lash Mascara and Endless Silky Eye Pen in Greige. I'm practically using these two everyday!
