Company’s Description

Get ready for the first light – this all-you-need face palette of magical morning colours makes it easy to create the most radiant result! This convenient kit is designed to make it simple for you to greet the day looking like you got up early (even if you did not!). Subtle daylight colours give a prettifying “wakeup” effect.

Pixi’s new Early Bird Kit is a palette for your get-ready face. The kit contains: 3 cheek colours, 2 bronzers, 1 face glow, 4 eye base shades, and 16 eye shadow shades.

Packaging: 9/10

This palette is made of heavy, durable cardboard. The palette folds open (like window panes) and stays shut via a magnet. Inside, you will find the blushes on the left, the eye colors in the middle, and the bronzers/highlighter on the right.

Quality: 8.5/10

This palette contains three (3) blush colors: a soft peach, a medium pink, and a pinky-red. All of the colors have good pigmentation and are buildable. They will all leave a translucent, slightly shimmery finish. The formula for the blushes is very powdery, so expect to get the pigment all over the palette and a blush-dust cloud when you put your brush to the pans. The dusty formula means that the pigmentation is quite sheer on the first layer\.

The palette also contains two (2) bronzing colors: one that is more cool-toned and champagne-based while the other is darker and more warm-toned. There is also a soft, pearlized highlighting powder. The formula for the bronzers is just as dusty as the blushes, so expect the same dust clouds and sheer color on the first layer. The highlighter’s formula is not as powdery and the sheen you get is subtle at first and can be built up to be quite intense.

Last, the palette contains four (4) eye shadow “base” colors and sixteen (16) eye shadow colors. The eye shadow base colors are powdery but also very soft and creamy. The colors are very sheer, which makes them great for using as a base all over the lids or as highlighters under the eyebrows.

The eye shadow colors all have good-to-great pigmentation with the exception of just one (1) or two (2) of the shades. The top four (4) colors on the left side are a little stiff. The rest of the colors have a softer formula.

Though I wish that the formula for the powders in this palette were less dusty, my overall opinion is very positive for this product. It’s very convenient to have your blush, highlighter, bronzer, and eye shadow colors all in one place. The palette’s colors are great for a cohesive face look.

Ease of Use: 8.75/10

The powders are very dusty, which makes for a messier-than-normal application experience. The blushes and bronzers do need a little bit of layering. But, otherwise, the colors blend out smoothly and apply easily.

Price: 8.75/10

For $34.00 you get about 1 ounce of eye shadow powder and about 1 ounce of face colors.
