PixiGlow Fairy Face Palette Review and Swatches

From the PixiGlow line, a collaboration between Pixi and Disney for a Tinkerbell-inspired makeup line, comes the PixiGlow Fairy Face Palette.

PixiGlowFairyFacePalette01It comes in a heavy, light green plastic case (the light green being Pixi’s signature color). It measures 3.5 inches wide, 5 inches long and 1 inch thick. Yeah, it’s pretty big.

I like the Tinkerbell design on the cover. It’s cute!

PixiGlowFairyFacePalette02The Fairy Face Palette comes with…

  • 5 baked eye shadows
  • 5 lip creams
  • 3-color blush
  • Applicators for each
  • Mirror

While I like the blush and lip brushes, I’ve never been a fan of sponge applicators for eye shadow. I used my own eye shadow brush instead when testing this out.

In the middle sits the 3-color blush. While you could figure out how to use each color individually, the wide brush is best for using all three at once.

On the right are the 5 colors of lip cream. They’re like a lip gloss and lipstick in one.

PixiGlowFairyFacePalette07This is how the blush looks when using all three colors at once. It has a nice shimmer that warms up skin and makes you glow. This is my favorite thing in the PixiGlow Fairy Face Palette, and what I’ve used the most. (I look awesome with it on!)

PixiGlowFairyFacePalette06As you can see, the lip creams have a lot of color. Each one has it’s own shade and personality. They’re soft and shiny like a gloss and pigmented like a lipstick.

The Final Verdict

As is usually the case with Pixi, the PixiGlow Fiary Face Palette impressed me. The eye shadows are saturated in color and apply well. The lip creams are colorful and the 3-color blush is my favorite thing.

Still, the eye shadow applicator is useless (to me) and the packaging is pretty huge. For all of these reasons, I give the Fairy Face Palette a…


You can pick this up at Target or online at the Pixi website for $34 suggested retail price.
