I received a lovely little surprise package the other day from Pixi Beauty of their new Hello Rose! Kit ($22.00), a darling trio of rose inspired products that gave me major spring fever! Roses are the epitome of romance and I just couldn’t help but to think of springtime and love when I saw these products, which are perfect for creating a soft, romantic look.
The kit comes with three cute minis that include a liquid illuminator, blush and highlighter duo, and a lip gloss.
The Pink Pearl Glow Booster (0.4 fl. oz.) is a liquid face illuminator that’s packed with vitamins A and E, and contains finely milled shimmers that diffuse onto the skin to give a subtle, natural glow. It has a very light consistency with a sheer finish that provides great hydration and instant luminescence for a healthy looking complexion. I like to apply this lotion on before I put on my makeup or wear it on days where I want to go bare face — it revives my dry skin and gives it a beautiful dewiness that’s simply beautiful.
The Rose Gold Beauty Blush Duo (4.5 g) contains a shimmery rosy pink blush and a shimmery champagne gold highlighter. The blush has a build-able sheer payoff that applies on nicely and blends very easily. It gives a soft flush of color on the cheeks for a natural looking radiance and can be layered for more intensity. The highlighter has fine shimmers and great pigmentation; it can be dusted on lightly for a subtle sheen or build-up for an intense glow. Both the blush and highlighter have minimal fall-outs and are incredibly workable with good wear time — they pair beautifully together and can also double-up as eyeshadows!
The Sheer Rose LipLift Max Lip Gloss (1 g) has a sheer color payoff with a cooling sensation and a peptides-infused formula that’s said to hydrate, firm, and plump. I really enjoy the refreshing minty scent of this lip gloss and love that it’s non-sticky and ultra hydrating. I didn’t notice any plumping effect since my lips are naturally big already, but the cool tingling was nice — it lingered on for a couple of minutes, then disappeared. This little lip gloss can be worn alone, and would be great as a traveling buddy in your purse for instant moisturization and gloss when needed and it can also be applied on top of a lipstick for an extra luscious shine.
For this makeup look, I started off by prepping my skin with the Pink Pearl Glow Booster. I applied the lotion on before my makeup to hydrate and refresh my skin. It sets quickly, isn’t sticky, and is very effective.
After I applied on my base makeup and contoured my face with a bronzer, I used both shades from the Rose Gold Beauty Blush Duo to give my complexion a rosy luminance.
I also used the blush and highlighter duo on my eyes with the addition of a matte brown and matte black eyeshadow to add depth; the blush color was used on the crease and the highlight shade was applied onto the center of the lid, the inner corner, and on the brow bone.
On my lips, I have nothing on but the Sheer Rose LipLift Max Lip Gloss.
