Review & Swatchfest: PixiGlow Fairy Face Palette

PixiGlow Fairy Face Palette 
PixiGlow Fairy Face Palette 

Pixi's Fairy Face Palette is part of the PixiGlow collection - a collection based on Tinker Bell's "fresh-faced, glowing, and timeless beauty". This palette retails for $34 and includes 5 eyeshadows, one blush (with three colors), and five lip creams and three applicators. 

The Fairy Face Palette is overwhelmingly neutral and pink, and all powders are baked and shimmery. Right off the bat, if you aren't into shimmer or pinks, this won't be for you. If you are, however, then read on! To start, the five shadows in this palette are nicely pigmented, although it does take some packing on to render them completely opaque, and very smooth. Altogether, they complement each other very well. I found it easy to use all of them in one look, yet there are some great colors that can be worn alone for a complementary wash of color across the lid. The two lightest shades can serve as facial highlighters as well. 

The lip creams are composed of pinks and plums - all of which are sans shimmer and relatively opaque.   The texture of these is unlike anything I've tried before and it's not necessarily a good thing. While they can all be opaque, each of these shades has issues with streaky application. I used both my finger to help the product warm up and blend in, as well as the applicator that comes with the palette and both delivered similar streaky results. The applicator, by the way, is actually pretty nice and provides a more precise application for the darker shades. The large mirror in the palette makes it great for taking your application on the road as well. Lip creams in this palette wore for around 3 hours and more pigmented shades sunk into lip lines and lingered for longer. They aren't very moisturizing, so if you have dry lips already, the pigment will cling to dry patches and look splotchy (you can see this in some of the pictures below). Check the bottom of the post to see how the lip creams translate onto the lips and get more color descriptions. 

The blush consists of three shimmery pink shades that, despite being in one pan, are easily separated and applied individually. Much like the shadows, the blush shades are very smooth, pigmented, and long lasting. However, while the quality and performance of these is great, the lightest shade is easily duplicated by one of the eyeshadow shades. I would have preferred to see a bronzing product in its' stead. 

As a whole, this palette is a little disappointing for the price tag. The shadows are great, but offer little variety, the lip creams have problematic coverage, and the blushes (although good quality) again offer few options. Those who know they want a palette with stellar neutrals and like the way these lip creams wear will want to think about this. If you are on the fence, I highly recommend waiting for a sale. Often, Pixibeauty.com will offer discounts from 20% - 30% site wide. In this case, I would recommend checking this palette out!
