Quick and easy with Pixy

28 August 2014

Last weekend, I shared with you guys how the launch of Pixy went. This time, I'm giving you a closer look at the products I got as well as some quick notes on some of them that I've actually tried so you can decide whether you'll be interested enough to check them out at Watsons.

Pixy UV Whitening Two Way Cake and Pixy Ultimate Makeup Cake
Both are housed in durable plastic with a full-sized mirror inside. I actually dropped the Pixy Ultimate Makeup Cake as I was rushing out of the event to go my meeting that I got scared to take a peek and see crushed powder and mirror inside, but I was so pleased to find everything intact. Yay!

Pixy UV Whitening Two Way Cake in Honey Beige
Lightweight powder foundation with oil-free formula covers skin imperfections with matte and sweat-proof finish. Clinically proven non-comedogenic, suitable for oily skin. Enriched with Extract Kanzo and antibacterial to prevent acne-causing bacteria. The 2-Way Whitening formula, from combination of Natural Whitening Powder, Vitamin C derivate, and Sunscreen protects skin against sun rays and makes your skin fairer.
Pixy Ultimate Makeup Cake in Natural Buff
Completed with Light Diffusing Powder which covers imperfections and makes skin look naturally smooth as well as an Oil Absorbent Formula which enables perfect makeup up to 8 hours.
I liked this powder because it doesn't feel heavy on the skin. The shade also matches my skintone perfectly. You can use this either wet or dry but I prefer using it dry using the sponge provided. Sometimes, when I'm not feeling lazy, I use my mini kabuki brush to blend it in.

Pixy Volumizing Waterproof Mascara and Pixy Perfect Eyeliner
Pixy Volumizing Waterproof Mascara in Black
Makes eyelashes look fuller and each strand thicker. The waterproof formula keeps its intense black color stay longer and not fade off easily.
When it comes to mascara, it's always one of two things: either it works or it doesn't. The Pixy Volumizing Waterproof Mascara does everything it claims to do: makes lashes look fuller and thicker, and stays the same from the time I applied it to the time I remove it at night with my eye makeup remover.

Pixy Perfect Eyeliner in Black
I have to admit I am not that adept when it comes to eyeliner application, especially when it's in liquid formula. I never know when it's dry enough for me to open my eyes so I always end up with some liquid eyeliner on my eyelids! -_- I wasn't really sure when I tried this one, but whoah, it gave me the perfect lined eyes I wanted! See photos on my sample look below. 

Pixy Eye Shadow in Sparkling Gold 09
The micro-pearl ingredient produces a soft texture to naturally blend colors. The two-color combination of each variant is easy to use and can be freely combined with colors from other variants.
The eye shadows were just okay for me, nothing to be really excited about. Though not necessarily chalky, you might still want to use a primer first before applying these to make the colors pop. 

Pixy Blush On in Passion Roses 04
Gives a softly-blended, natural highlight on cheekbones. Choose from our collection of brown, pink, or purple shades for your desired look.
Now this blush, I liked. A quick look at my makeup case and I realized that all the blushes I currently have lean on coral shades, so this color is unique. I also liked its tint on my cheeks.

Pixy Silky Fit Lipstick in Autumn Apricot, Pixy Silky Fit Semi-Matte Lipstick in Misaki, and Pixy Lasting Matte Lipstick in Peach Delicacy

Aaah, my favorite part - the lipsticks! I loved Pixy lipsticks because they fit the criteria I have for lipsticks lately: natural-looking and not too loud. These all look dainty and perfect for everyday wear. Suitable for students and for those who work in conservative offices!

Pixy Lasting Matte Lipstick in Peach Delicacy
These lipsticks are all worth checking out because they're extremely affordable, wearable, and very easy to wear. They're also non-drying on the lips. Of the three, the Silky Fit Lipstick in Autumn Apricot is easily my favorite because it's almost a perfect match to my own lip shade. MLBB material alert! As for the Lasting Matte Lipstick, well, I was actually expecting it to be more matte judging by its name but I'm afraid it fell short. My Revlon Matte Lipstick in Pink About It is more matte than this. Still a pretty color, though. 

Meanwhile, I made a super quick and easy everyday look using Pixy products. My face went from looking like this:

Completely makeup-free Krissy
to this:

Pixy'd Krissy
What a difference a few products make, yes? The second photo has me looking a lot more polished than the one above it, heh.


I used the Ultimate Makeup Cake in Natural Buff on my face, the light color of the Sparkling Gold Eye Shadow as lid wash and the darker color as brow powder, Volumizing Waterproof Mascara and Perfect Eyeliner, both in Black, Blush On in Passion Roses on my cheeks, and the Silky Fit Lipstick on Autumn Apricot on my lips.



See what I mean about the eyeliner?


I wish I looked like this on college, heh. I don't like putting a whole face of makeup on on ordinary days so unless we have client meetings or events, I just look like this almost all the time. Maybe I'll try Tokyo Kawaii and Tokyo Glam as well?

I hope these photos and notes have been helpful. Tell me if ever you decide to check these Pixy products out at Watsons! ♥
