Last Thursday, I had the opportunity to attend Pixi by Petra’s fall preview event in LA. Did I squeal when I received my invitation? YEP!
Pixi’s new fall line will be available at Target later this month, but I had a chance to swatch and preview the goodies (plus their popular items) at the event, which was held at Ipsy Studios in LA. The room was beautifully decorated with flowers, a sign-me wall, photobooth and Pixi makeup scattered everywhere. The macarons and cookies were tasty, and I drank 2 Hint Waters because they’re so delicious.
I also had the chance to finally meet fellow beauty blogger NessasaryMakeup.com face-to-face. We’ve been online acquaintances for years, so it was nice to finally meet in person and become friends.
Plenty of well-known bloggers and vloggers were in attendance, as well as Pixi creator Petra Strand herself. I was able to get my makeup done by the lovely English makeup artist Amanda (photo below) and also received a cute gold Pixi tattoo on my wrist. They were offering mini-manis, which were very popular throughout the entire event.
I haven’t tried the makeup on myself yet, but I did swatch the colors on my wrists. The eyeshadow palettes are super smooth and they blend like butter. The metallic polishes are VERY metallic and beautiful. And the product I’m most excited about – Quick Fix translucent powder – is finely milled and feels like silk in between my fingers. I’m looking forward to using all the products in my goodie bag soon.
Do you have a favorite Pixi beauty product?
This is the goodie bag we were sent home with. How awesome is this bag?! =)
