Pixi Beauty has released two new Seasonal Kits, which contain 8 eye shadows and a blush shade. This review is for the Seasonal Kit in Casual Cool, which contains cool browns & violets for the eyes and a pink glow for the cheeks.
This palette comes in a rectangular compact with a clear, flip-up lid. The palette also contains a sponge-tip applicator.
The 8 eye shadows are a mix of cool- and warm-toned purples and browns. In general, the purple shades are shimmery while the brown shades are a bit more frosty. The purple shades aren’t as opaque and have a drier formula.
The blush is a matte, yellow-based pink. It could definitely use better pigmentation, and takes 2-3 layers to be noticeable on the skin.
Ease of Use: 8.5/10
The brown eye shadows are the easiest to apply because of their more buttery formula. The purple shadows are a bit stiffer in the pan. The blush requires multiple layers.
For $22.00 you get 0.44 ounces (4 grams) of eye shadow and 0.42 ounces (1.2 grams) of blush.
