Meet the Pixie Behind Pixi
A makeup artist for overÂ two decades, Petra Strand has held true to the belief thatÂ makeup should make a woman look like herself, only more gorgeous.Â Based onÂ this philosophy she created Pixi 10 years ago along with her two sisters. From herÂ London boutique to the shelves of Target, shoppersÂ canÂ experienceÂ a palette sheÂ designed to beÂ multipurpose and fuss-free as well as to offer skincare benefits.Â Pixi’s delightfully light, soft colors are a budget friendly solutionÂ for women who crave variety butÂ are consious of theirÂ spending habits. The products in the collection range from $12 to $35. Sweet savings!

From next month (MondayÂ Feb. 1,Â to be precise), Beauty in the Bag is launching 5 straight days of giveaways exclusively for its UK fans. We’re sharing the love across the pond!
There are some great prizes up for grabs from lotions and potions to treatments and pro kits, all hand-selected by the Beauty in the Bag team, including;
A SUQQU Gankin massage, the famously firm Japanese facial massage to contour and recondition the skin, worth Â£30 at Selfridges London. Or if you are gearing-up to a winter-sun bikini holiday, you can win a beach body in a tube with Karin Herzog Swiss Skincare’s Tone & Tan wort
PIXI MUST HAVE KIT – This kit is pretty good, but I wouldn’t call it a ‘must have.’ It comes in a small leather traveling case, complete with five brushes and a compact with blush, two eye shadows, and two lip colors. The compact itself is super skinny, which is good for on-the-go touch ups or for throwing in my backpack on days when I oversleep (which happens quite often actually…). But for $39, and such a small amount of make-up, I’d say the small travel-size isn’t really worth the moolah.
FINAL VERDICT – It falls between GGI (GOTTA GET IT) and ICW (IT CAN WAIT)-Â Cute, but it doesn’t haveÂ enough make-up to make the kit a true ‘must have’, at least notÂ for me. If you aren’t watching your pennies, then you may love it.
