I came, I saw, I conquered the Pixi display at Target!
I ended up hauling quite a few items from the new Pixi Collection available at Target and about 98% of it I was pretty darn happy about however I was slightly disappointed with the Pixi Eye Beauty Kit in Miracle I picked up!
I’ll start my tale by telling you that I’ve wanted a Pixi Eye Beauty Kit for a very, very long time. I remember lemming two that were available for a terribly long time on Sephora but for some odd reason I never picked them up and finally when I did wake up and say “gee I really should order those”, tragedy struck…….they were out of stock.
The Muse would visit Sephora daily in the hopes they’d pop back up again but sadly they never did. She was tempted to ask friends in London to please go and grab them for her but she wasn’t feeling like spending cash on airmail plus the inflated price of the palette UK side.
Good news finally came when Target began carrying the entire Pixi Collection! Blessed be!
Sadly, the wait for Pixi Eye Beauty Kits wasn’t worth it.
Although the palette is nice enough it has it’s fair share of flaws and in the end it’s $28 USD price tag is seriously not worth it!
What’s not the like about a super credit card slim palette that contains eye shimmering shades of shadow? Alot.
Although I like the palette well enough it’s main problem is the quality for the cash. If the price was a bit lower I imagine I’d recommend purchasing one or two but at $28 USD it doesn’t come through to warrant such a high cost.
I purchased Miracle but there are about 12 other color options available for you to choose from and who knows some of those may be good but Miracle is lacking big time. The shades are all pastel and range in golds, pinks, and other softer natural shades. The color pay off is practically non existent and ridiculously sheer. The shadows are all very soft, silky, and easy to blend however that doesn’t redeem the fact that the shades are sadly lacking pigment of any kind.
The good news is, yes you can create a rather nice daytime look, the bad news is that you’re paying $28 USD to create a look you can probably duplicate for heaps cheaper with a posher brand of cosmetics that would cost less!
The shades included in the palette are as follows:
Dusky Light Copper
Shimmering Dark Rose
Shimmering Brownish Copper
Basically all of the above shades look pretty much the same when on your lid. There isn’t anything to contrast each shade so if you’re wanting to use several shades for one look, chances are you’ll end up looking like you have one shade on in the long run.
The good news is that although the colors are sheer they still manage to create a fresh look to my eyes and the shimmer in each shade is very nice however this still doesn’t justify the cost.
The packaging is interesting on the compact in it’s simple very slim design. I give Pixi major props for managing to keep a certain cuteness about the compact while also having a simple design for easy storage and portability.
Overall, I just feel like the palette isn’t worth it’s ridiculous $28 USD price tag. If they consider lowering the price I may be tempted to purchase another shade selection but even than I have serious doubts if I’d indulge further.
All in all this one I’m on the outs about this one. Definitely check out the Pixi line at Target as they have some fantastic offerings that I’ll review for you shortly but steer clear of the Pixi Eye Beauty Kits…they just aren’t worth the cash!
Tried out any of the Pixi line for yourself?
