Pixi by Petra is one of those brands you just wish you could find more easily, and I feel like apart from the Glow Tonic, it’s not really too discussed online. So, when I got my hands on two of their Fairy Dust eyeshadow pigments I was absolutely ecstatic.
Available in two colour ways – Metallic Warms and Matte Classics, the little pots of pigment are just the thing if you love classic wash of colour which are easy to apply and look understatedly elegant.
Matte Classics is the colour choice I tend to choose for day wear. The mix of nudes and chocolates in the tower are exactly what I like to apply in the morning.
The lightest matte shade is a gorgeous ivory, which makes the most perfect base shade. The Fairy Dust has a soft, almost powdery texture which disappears into lids, leaving them primed for colour.
The light almost-peach shade is just the colour to swipe on for days whenI’m after a no-makeup look.It adds a subtle amount of definition which lasts all day.
The soft, almost pinky-taupe shade is a wonderful suit-all shade which is absolutely beautiful applied all over the lid. It is the perfect shade for added a touch of natural-looking definition, and I just adore the satin finish it has.
The rich chocolate shade is an absolute godsend for someone like me who loves a non-black liner. It smudges into lashes perfectly and creates a wonderfully smokey look.
Last up is a deep charcoal which is the most dramatic of the matte shades. I love to use it with a dampened liner brush to add real drama for night.
The Warm Metallic selection is perfect for creating a more dramatic look. With a mix of warm coppers and burgundy, as well as a shell pink and black, it’s an absolutely stunning mix of colours.
The top, shell pink shade is absolutely gorgeously patted onto the centre of the lid to add a little light. It makes eyes sparkle and look wide awake.
This warm shimmer falls somewhere between gold and copper, and adds a beautiful shimmer to any look. Since we’re nearly at Christmas, I have worn this during the day a couple of times as it’s just so pretty!
This shimmering ruby shade has to be my absolute favourite! It’s so different from my regular taupes and browns, but this is just so beautiful! I would normally be a bit intimidated by a shade like this, but the soft texture means it’s wonderfully build able, and it’s just stunning!
If there had to be a shadow that the most ‘me’, it would probably be this one. The colour is the most perfect brown which can be used as both a shadow and a liner. Shot through with gold shimmer, this is a hazel-eyed girl’s best friend!
Last up is the deepest, shimmeriest black you can imagine. It’s rich and absolutely glorious as a liner!
