Pixi Lip Palette

Pixie cosmetics are now being carried by Target. Among the wider range of products are some very nice palettes, including a set of lip palettes, each containing 8 Pixi lip glow cremes. I bought the Perfect Rose palette one and found it to be a fairly nice palette.

The palette itself is made of light green plastic, which felt a bit cheap to me considering the price, but it still was of decent enough quality. A mirror and a small serviceable brush are included. The lip shade are all quite nice, with some being quite sheer and a few being more of a medium sheer. They feel great on the lips and last fairly well. Below are swatches of the shades in the same order that they appear in the palette:

As you can see, the top row is much more sheer than the bottom. On the whole, this palette provides a great way to obtain eight useful shade in one color family. Besides the Perfect Rose palette that I tested, the company offers the Perfect Bronze and Tan Topper Palettes with additional shades.

Look for Pixi in the Target beauty aisles or online.To read abut the eye shadow palettes, take a look at my review on Beauty on Fashion Tech.

Senna Cosmetics Lip Sync Duo: Lipstick and Gloss Together

lipsync01I am in loooooove with lipstick/gloss combos! Awhile back I raved about the Sonia Kashuk combo (read review). Now I am adoring the Senna Lip Sync in Paris Pink, which combines a sheer rose lipstick with a pink gloss. Senna describes their Lip Sync duos as follows:

The user-friendly lipstick-lipgloss duo is available in three shades that look stunning no matter how you mix and match them.  A La Mode is a soft rose peach lipstick paired with a sparkling peach gloss, Stunning pairs earthy coral glowing lipstick with a golden-hued gloss and Paris Pink combines a true rose lipstick with a soft warm pink gloss.

Lip Sync formulas are flavored to taste like almond biscotti and include natural ingredients such as shea butter, sweet almond oil, green tea extract and Maxi Lip®. These conditioning and soothing elements ensure that lips stay super moist and that the color they provide won’t fade.

The Paris Pink duo is indeed quite nice. The lipstick is creamy and smooth with a great shade. It is sheer but not too sheer. Instead of matching the shade, the gloss is done in a compatible shade of pink. So either could be worn alone, or they work well together. The gloss is not at all sticky and the light flavor is pleasant.

Below are swatches from the Paris Pink set:


On the left is the lipstick, the middle is the lipstick combined with gloss, and on the right is the gloss alone.
