Pixi Fairy Light Solo Review & Swatches

Pixi Fairy Light Solo Eyeshadows released a while back ago but I’m just now getting around to reviewing these. Originally Pixi launched Fairy Light Solo Eyeshadows in only a few shades but as of recently they are available in twelve shades including a new Gilded Green shade just like the popular eyeliner color!

Let’s take a look!

Pixi Fairy Light Solo Eyeshadow are meant to brighten the appearance of eyes and give them a lifted effect. They have a radiant glow with a smooth matte finish that appears a bit on the frost side. The shades I tried have a light reflecting finish that draws light to the eyes and gives the appearance of brighter more wide awake eyes.

They actually contain shea butter so they have this soft silky feel that’s a cross of a powder and a cream. Each comes housed in a tiny green compact with the powder shadow having the Pixi imprint. The imprint sadly disappears after a few uses but still is cute while it lasts.

The only shade I can say is truly matte that I’ve tried would be French Lace where as the others have more of a frosty finish. I dislike frosts with a passion but these are a very silky and easy to wear formula. I thought I’d experience a good deal of fall out due to their powdery texture (as photographed below) but they actually apply fairly mess-free and even though they are frost it’s a very refined frost that gives a smooth appearance on my lids. They really do have a heavenly texture!

Not only are they lovely in terms of formula but they really do brighten up eyes. If you have sleepy eyes, puffy ones, or just dark circles these are soft, delicate shades that brighten up the appearance of those issues! You aren’t going to love these if you’re looking for bold, dramatic eye looks. You will however, love them if you want a sheer wash of color on lids that’s very natural and lovely!

I really like working with these and they make a rather easy way to get a simple, natural yet fresh eye look without a ton of effort.
