Merry Christmas everybody! Missing the last 2 days of #BLOGMAS because I simply ran out of ideas and energy. haha. Where did you spent your Christmas? I was making some caramel popcorn and then went out to Central Park Mal to watch fireworks. I almost forgot the reason I rarely go to mal on day offs or holiday until I have to spent an hour to just get out of the mal. Belom lagi sikut-sikutannya sama abang-abang pas lagi rebutan jalan masuk ke mol abis nonton kembang apinya di taman. Udah pake baju cantik, pake rok bunga-bunga biar manis, eh premannya keluar lagi. #nasib
So after another 2 days of lazying I finally get back to the mood! And today I'm gonna do a review of Eyeshadows from Pixy. I feel like I'm kinda late to jump into the Pixy bandwagon since they're actually quite a big brand but I just don't feel like it. I guess better late than never, aight?
They come in a tranparent container with pink foil on top as garnish. The pink is quite okay, not a big fan of the color though. They also got an applicator with longer handle. I love that it doesn't have a dual ended sponge because it's such a hassle when both ends are dirty. I will most likely end up with fingers covered in eyeshadow if such thing happen. Plus one to Pixy to help me avoid that tragedy.
They have 2 colors on each series and I believe they have around 6 color combination to choose from. I just pick out the ones with neutral color so I can wear it more often. One thing I notice with their shadows is that the lighter colors are more frosty-shimmery finish and the darker colors are more into matte side, although there are some subtle glitter chunks were scatered here and there.
Pigmentation & Texture:
As for the pigmentation, they are okay. They show up quite well as you can see in the swatches, but the texture is a bit hard and it needs a few swipe to get the full opacity. I notice it blends away better when applied using fingers, which is a way I don't prefer when I'm applying my eyeshadow. When I use brush to apply, it's kinda hard to get a nice opaque and blended color as it likes to go patchy. It can get nice eventually with a lot of patience and effort. Again, not something I prefer for my daily makeup, I need something quick!
It lasts maybe for about 4-5 hours on its own before it starts to fade. By the end of the day I usually left with uneven and creasing eyeshadows. Nothing new for daily use local makeup, I can easily use my MAC Soft Ochre Paint Pot to make it lasts longer and stay on better.
A set of neutral that goes into more of a pink undertone. The light beige is very neutral and a very nice all over lid color and the deep maroonish chocolate is nice for an everyday play with color kinda day since it looks more like a deep purple on my yellow skin. I'm sorry, it didn't actually look that purple in real life but I'm too lazy to edit it to the right color. XD
A very warm everyday neutral color. The light shimmery peach is pretty on its own but not my favourite to put on my eyes, while the deep taupe-ish brown looks so perfect as my everyday definer color. *I accidentally upload the biggest pict I have on the Sorrel Brown eye look, if you click the picture you can see everything. My foundation-covered lower lashes, my stray brow hair, the eyelash glue, EVERYTHING!
As for the color, I just wish they have the light shimmery beige color from the Bronze Delight with the dark color from Sorrel Brown, I will definitely wear that combo out like nothing else.
Overall, it's an okay eyeshadow for me. Nothing over the top and something that would get replaced easily if I found something slightly better. The only thing I really like is how they only have 2 colors on them, which means I don't have to think about which color to use since they only have colors, like, two. And it's very compact so I can bring it easily on my makeup pouch.
You can find this product almost anywhere, they really well distributed which is also a thing I like because I don't have to hunt them around. I bought mine at Hypermart Puri Indah for IDR 31.000. Pretty affordable, huh?
Have you ever tried this Pixy Eyeshadows? Do you like it?
