Pixi Beauty’s Holiday 2011 Lineup Covers All the Bases

It’s that time of year. All the beauty companies are coming out with their holiday makeup lines. Some products enter their permanent collections while others are limited edition just for a short amount of time. And then they’re gone.

Pixi has released their holiday makeup line, and it pulls out all the stops. Get items for every part of your makeup routine.

Check out these mini-reviews for the products in the Pixi holiday 2011 collection!

Pixi Ultimate Beauty Kit

The Ultimate Beauty Kit is a large palette consisting of 32 eye shadows, 16 lip hues and 8 blushes.

pixiHoliday201102Open up the two flaps on top for the shadows, and a flap in the middle for the glosses and blushes, along with a mirror.

pixiHoliday201103As usual, the consistency of the Pixi pressed eye shadows and blushes are silky smooth. Everything blends together perfectly. But if you’re taking this on a trip, bring your own set of travel makeup brushes. This kit doesn’t come with an eye shadow, blush or lip brush.

Pixi Endless Silky Eye Taster Trio

This limited edition trio of Pixi eyeliners comes in three dark colors.

pixiHoliday201104From top to bottom, this comes with BlackCocoa, BlackTulip and BlackNoir.

pixiHoliday201105Just like the Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen in Black Blue I tried previously, these eyeliners are super smooth and soft. You can get a deep, perfect line in just one swipe.

A downside to these is that they take a lot of effort to remove, even with a good makeup remover. You may have to scrub a little harder to get them off your lids.

Pixi Line Relax Serum

The Line Relax Serum promises instant de-puffing and relaxation of facial lines.

pixiHoliday201106Use this right before you put on your foundation and other face makeup.

pixiHoliday201107Pop the cap off the top and pump a few times into the palm of your hand. Then, just smooth over your face.

While I didn’t notice any de-puffing or relaxed lines (maybe since I don’t have many lines), this stuff still wasn’t useless. When I put it on right before the rest of my makeup, it’s smoothness acted as a great primer or pre-primer. Makeup went on much smoother and I looked fresh overall.

Still, it didn’t fully live up to its promises.

Pixi All Over Magic

The All Over Magic promises to add a silky sheen to your skin, anywhere on your body.

pixiHoliday201108I got to try it in Brightening Radiance (light pinks and beiges), although it also comes in Bare Radiance (browns and nudes) and Rose Radiance (peaches and pinks).

pixiHoliday201109Sweep a blush brush (not provided) over the pixi-adorned pressed powder and buff it into your skin.

While I liked the shimmery sheen this gave to my skin, it would have been better if it was just a bit less chalky.

Pixi Wakeup Concealer

The Wakeup Concealer has a built-in brush to make application super easy.

pixiHoliday201110I tried it in Cream, but it also comes in Nude and Warm.

The formula was a few shades lighter than my skin, which is what you want in an under-eye concealer. Although it comes with its own brush, it worked best for me when I dabbed it on with the brush and then used my own wider concealer brush to blend it in.

My darkish circles looked instantly lighter and better. And I looked more awake!

I don’t normally wear concealer, but I know I’ll use it more now that I have this product.

  1. Love the palette! It has so many pretty shades and the packaging is cute too. The eyeliner set sounds interesting too. Thanks for the review.

  2. I always enjoy your reviews. I wouldn’t mind trying that eye serum as i do have lines and puffyness. The concealer looks good too. Thanks for the reviews!

    • Frankly, I’m not so sure the Line Relax Serum would work on your wrinkles. I didn’t get that impression from the product. But, it’s always worth a shot.
