When it comes to this time of year, I feel like my skin always needs a bit of a helping hand. We’re right at the cusp of winter, and although the temperatures haven’t quite dropped, it’s getting chillier, and my skin is starting that awkward transition into my cold weather routine. So, last week, when I went to my first Covid-safe press event at Harvey Nichols last week, I was pretty thrilled to get gifted this genius powder from Pixi.
Part of the brand’s Vitamin +C line, which is designed to keep skin radiant, the Glow-y Powder is a multiuse powder house, which you can use as a blush, highlight and even eyeshadow. It’s one of those products which finds a spot in your daily makeup bag, then never really leaves. Personally, I find my skin can look too ruddy if I pile on the blush, but I’ve been loving swirling a light layer of the powder onto my cheekbones, and buffing it in as a neutral shadow.
The powder has a beautifully buttery texture which just melts into the skin. It has such a gorgeously soft texture, it almost feels creamy, and as a result, it won’t ever cake or look cake-y on the face. Instead it just brings a warm glow to the skin without adding any of the dreaded sparkle. I’m more than a little obsessed with the amount of shine it brings, which whilst beautiful, never looks too much. Even when applied sparingly, the colour and glow lasts all day long, and it’s pretty much golden hour in a pan – exactly what I’m looking for at this time of year!
