Pixi Beauty · Pixi Pretties Collection 2018

 

Pixi Beauty products have been steadily gaining ground in my makeup routine, and as a girl who tends to lean more towards luxury beauty, no one is more surprised by this revelation, than me. Several weeks ago, a package came in containing the Pixi Pretties Collection for 2018 –comprised of the latest collaborative efforts between Pixi and 3 beauty influencers — and I couldn’t wait to crack everything open and, well … play. I’m seriously like a kid in a toy store whenever I’m around makeup and who can blame me when stuff like this comes in?

Benefit · Gold Rush & Blush Bar

 

Benefit, the brand known for its fun retro-kitschy packaging and some of the beauty-world’s most iconic products (Benetint, Hoola, Gimme Brow — to name but a few), has recently added to their Box O’ Powder collection of blushes with Gold Rush, and even if the name doesn’t pique your interest, I’m betting the colour definitely will. For those who want to go that extra mile, you can also snag the Blush Bar, this year’s coveted cheek palette from the brand; either way, you really can’t go wrong!
