The PIXI Liquid Fairy Lights will light up your eyes!

I recently opened a box from PIXI Beauty that was given to me as a press sample and found their brand new Liquid Fairy Lights Eyeshadows inside. You may or may not have seen this brand new product swarming around the internet or social media and if you haven’t and are looking for a first impression, review or swatches, this is definitely the post for you. Go ahead and keep reading and browsing and I hope you find what you need about these PIXI Liquid Fairy Lights Eyeshadows.

Pixi Beauty Fair Lights Eyeshadows

What are they?

The PIXI Liquid Fairy Lights Eyeshadows are an ultra sparkling liquid eyeshadow with 3D effect to wear solo or on top of any eye look. These are described as light reflecting super glimmers that will enliven any look! The formula consists of chamomile and rose extracts to soothe and hydrate.

These Fairy Lights Eyeshadows come in 5 shades: Crystalline, SunRay, RoseGold, BareBrilliance, and PassionLight and are available on the PIXI and Target website.

The verdict?

I AM OBSESSED! I didn’t know what to expect with these liquid glitter eyeshadows as many liquid glitter products do not work as well as I expect them to. From experience, some liquid glitter products flake off or the glitter applies patchy and uneven, if you will.

Let me tell you, when I first swatched these I was quite impressed or “shook” by the application and the pigmentation. Like I said, I didn’t know what to expect but as I swatched them, it sure captured my attention. It applies in a wet form and then dries down to a beautiful sparkly sheen that doesn’t crack or flake off! I also rubbed my fingers across the swatches after they have dried down and the glitter didn’t transfer on to my fingers which was bazaar to me. Ok, so only a few specks transferred but it didn’t mess up the application or the sparkle and looked as if I didn’t even touch the swatches.

As far as the application, it’s super easy to apply with the applicator. You can use the applicator straight on your eyes and sweep it across your lids to give your eyes that extra pop of sparkle or add a small dot in the inner corners to make your eyes pop and look more awake… there is a lot you can do with these Liquid Fairy Lights. Applying it with a brush or fingers is a great way to apply these as well but just know that it will be a wash of sparkle and will not look as pigmented as applying it with the actual applicator!

These are perfect if you want to make your eyes pop without having to deal with actual glitter and it’ll be the perfect addition to your beauty arsenal as the holiday season is approaching us. I say, grab one or two that you are interested in and do a look with it. I am a happy camper with these and I hope you are excited to try these out for yourself too.

application tips

EYESHADOW PALETTE: The eyeshadows are creamy and I didn’t notice fall out each time I used the palette. All of the eyeshadows apply well alone with no eyeshadow base but if you would like your eyeshadows to pop and appear more intense, I would suggest using the Urban Decay Primer Potion before applying the eyeshadows. You can also sprits your brush with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray that is featured in this collection to help intensify these shadows as well. I personally don’t mind applying these shadows without a primer though.

VICE LIPSTICKS: Just like the other Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks, these are creamy and highly pigmented. These can be worn alone but I do suggest applying some kind of lip liner underneath to create some kind of dimension to your lips.

EYE PENCILS: If you haven’t tried these, let me just mention that these eyeliners are really WATERPROOF! Before I go on a tangent, let me just say that these eye liners are creamy to the touch and are filled with so much pigment that one swipe will give you the intensity that you need. These eyeliners are super blendable but just know that once it sets, IT SETS! What I wanted to mention earlier was that I use the Urban Decay Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero and Perversion on all of my makeup clients and it lasts all day! These are a Pro Makeup Artist staple!

final thoughts/recommendations

I LOVE IT because there is something for everyone! This collection has everything you will need for any makeup look and the palette literally has every shade you need to bring on a trip. As far as the eyeliners and vice lipsticks, if you don’t think any of the shades in this collection is something you are not interested in or simply think it will not work for you, there are a ton of other shades in both the vice lipsticks and the glide-on eye pencils for you to choose from from the Urban Decay permanent line of cosmetics.

If I had to recommend one item for you to pick up, it will definitely be the eyeshadow palette. Simply because it has 21 shades that are versatile and you can create a ton of looks. I love the huge mirror – it’ll be convenient when you take it with you anywhere! Also, the packaging is inspiring and can serve as a motivation to travel the world!

Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen Review

by

It’s an invisible sunscreen!

Oh my goodness! I have a super cool product that I want to share with you. You may have already seen this “sunscreen” everywhere because it’s been available in the market for quite some time now but this was definitely brand new to me. I know, you’re probably thinking that I’ve been living under a rock for a bit and I sure have been. *laughs out loud*

I also did my first Chit Chat “Get Ready With Me”/First Impressions YouTube video of 2018 and I tried this sunscreen for the first time on there and I was shocked. You can see my first and raw reaction of the product in that video as well. I will link the video on the bottom of this post for you to check out when you have time.

 

Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF40

Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF40

What is it?

The Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF40 ($32.00 USD for 1.7 fl oz/50ml) is an invisible, weightless, innovative sunscreen that smooths and preps skin for makeup while providing full spectrum SPF 40 protection. The formula glides onto the skin providing oil and shine control, leaving a velvety, makeup-gripping finish.

More about this product: “The ingredient, Red Algae helps protect against the harmful effects of Blue Light, the light emitted from our phones and computers, while the Meadowfoam Seed Oil increases skin hydrating for a more even skin texture – with or without makeup.” – Supergoop

You can find this product at sephora and supergoop

REVIEW – THE VERDICT?

If you missed my recent YouTube “Get Ready With Me/First Impressions” video, let me just say that I was shocked that this Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen was invisible. This sunscreen DID NOT leave a “white cast” on my face which was also shocking because I’m so used to wearing a sunscreen that leaves a white cast on my face. So two thumbs up for it being invisible.

Also, this sunscreen is made to work as a foundation primer and in my GRWM/First Impressions video, I used it as a primer and it DID NOT interfere with the application of my foundation. Another huge plus! As far as the texture, I would compare it to the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer – it feels nice and silky and leaves my skin looking nice and smooth.

If you are not a fan of dimethicone or “silicone textures” in products, this product is not for you. I personally don’t mind the texture as it helps fill in my pores and leaves a smooth finish on my face. With my experience as a makeup artist, some of my clients are not fans of dimethicone or cannot tolerate dimethicone-filled products because of how it affects their skin. So please know that depending on your preference, this Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40 may or may not work for you. 🙂

Overall, I’m obsessed with this product as it works to protect my skin and works as a foundation primer. It’s like have two products in one. Double thumbs up from me!

a concealer to show off!

If you are here to see swatches of the new Urban Decay All Nighter Concealer you’re in the right place because this post will be short and simple for you. I will also include some product information in case you want to learn more about the concealers before diving into purchasing the product for yourself.

 

Urban Decay Waterproof Full Coverage Concealer

Urban Decay Waterproof Full Coverage Concealer

what is the all nighter concealer?

The Urban Decay All Nighter Waterproof Full Coverage Concealer (retail: $29 USD) provides a flawless matte coverage that lasts all day and all night. The formula consists of a blendable ultra-pigmented formula that controls shine and masks imperfections for up to 24 hours. This concealer claimes handle all of the hardest-to-hide trouble spots like dark circles, blemishes and discoloration.

If you’re looking for a concealer that can conceal troubled areas that were mentioned above with a full coverage, matte finish, definitely look into this concealer and see if it will work for you.

 

Urban Decay Waterproof Full Coverage Concealer

packaging and application details

The Urban Decay All Nighter Concealer comes in a gorgeous bottle that is identical to the Urban Decay All Nighter Liquid Foundation that features a metallized gunmetal effect with asymmetrical cutouts. The packaging was made intentionally as it is meant to be practical and travel-friendly. The angled flocked paddle applicator has a well at the tip that helps provide a precise application to lay down the product exactly where you need it.

A little goes a long way with this concealer as it is filled with pigment. With this concealer, it is recommended to be used after the foundation application. All you need is a TINY amount to conceal troubled areas or to brighten under your eyes and to get the best results, tap the concealer into your skin using your finger or a synthetic concealer brush.

Meet Washington the Cat!

Born on March 29, 2011 and full of spunk, we adopted Washington from our local humane society in 2012. We loved that he seemed to be the weirdest cat up for adoption at the Austin Humane Society – he had a fluffy tail and the only cat that was laying on his back while watching the humans pick out their next furry family member!

We are so happy to have him a part of our lives with his spunky, mischievous, sassy, spontaneous, and loving attitude!

 

More about Washington:
  • loves sun bathing on his back
  • loves playing with toy mice
  • needs his daily snacks
  • enjoys getting wet food
  • loves irritating his dog sister, Winnie
