Pixi Beauty Christmas Gift Guide 2019

 This post contains affiliate links and PR samples
With just a weeks left till Christmas I thought I would share some last minute makeup gift options from one of my favourite brands - Pixi Beauty. I simply adore their skincare and makeup and often buy it for others as a gift. They offer some of the most beautiful glitters and eyeshadow palettes perfect for the festive season and you simply can't go wrong with Pixi skincare.

 This is my latest Pixi purchase. I attended the Girl Day Out Show in Glasgow recently and was mesmerised by this Pressed Glitter Quad*(£14.00) in Gold Lava, so it had to come home with me. I adore the Pixi Fairy Lights and use them all the time, but this formula is even more sparkly and so, so easy to use. If you've ever tried pressed glitter, you will know that most of the time it requires glue, but this formula sticks to the skin and stays put without an adhesive! And the amount of sparkle in it is incredible! I am truly obsessed! This quad features four stunning tones with gold, holographic, brown and copper hues.
 I mean how gorgeous are these shades!!!
 Next we have the Eye Heart Palette*( £18.00) with warm brown, red and orange tones. It's absolutely stunning and you can create so many different looks with it. The formula is buttery soft and ultra pigmented (see swatches below) and the sleek packaging is very travel friendly. It has been my go to recently and I think it would be a lovely gift for someone who likes neutrals but wants to try something slightly different.
 Such pretty shades! I especially love the burgundy and orange tones and the dark pinky orange.
 The pigmentation is so good! And I find all Pixi shadows very easy to blend and long lasting.
The Pixi x Chloe Morello Lip Icings*(£16.00) make a perfect stocking filler and suit every complexion. The glosses are slightly tinted and contain beautiful shimmer and the formula is very smooth, non sticky and feels very nourishing on the lips.

 I'm a huge fan of both the Liquid Fairy Lights and the MatteLast Liquid Lips so these Lit Kits*(£16.00) are right up my street. These two are in collaboration with Maryam Maquillage and you can pick between two combinations (day and night).  Day contains a rose gold glitter shade of Fairy Lights- Mirage and a bright red liquid lip in Coral Bang. Night contains a glittery midnight black shade for the eyes - Starry Night and a Posh Nude liquid lip.
 Another Pixi Pretties collaboration features From Head To Toe and it consists of two gorgeous highlighters and an eyeshadow stick. The Glow-y Powders*(£14.00) are silky soft and add a radiant glow to the skin, without looking too harsh. You can use these on your face and body and there's two shades to choose from: Wednesdays (rose) and Fetch (golden bronze).

The Endless Shade Stick*(£12.00) is one of those 5 minute makeup look essentials, as you simply swipe it onto your lid, blend with your finger and you're done. Once on, the formula does not budge and it looks absolutely stunning with golden bronze shimmer.
 The Layers Highlighting Palette*(£22.00) is a glow baby's dream! Created in collaboration with RachhLoves, the palette contains five shimmering shades of highlighting powder. We have three small pans at the top: Lace (light pink), Zipper (lavender) and Knit (bronze) and two big pans in the bottom row: Tee (subtle gold) and Clutch (light champagne). You can use these on their own, or mix a few shades for a custom glow for your face and body (or eyes). The formula is gorgeous, buttery soft and applies like a dream, seamlessly blending into a radiant glow!
 Last but not least, we have this gorgeous Eye Reflections Mixed Metals Palette*(£24.00). It's one of the most beautiful palettes in my collection with gorgeous brown, golden and burgundy tones. As always, the formula is out of this world, with intense pigments and beautiful shimmer (full review + swatches here)
 If you don't want to risk ordering online (it should still be ok for Christmas delivery though), Pixi are now stocked in Boots and M&S, so you can pick up some of the products there, as well as their London store.
