Pixi Beauty Rose Essence Collection

Quite possibly the prettiest parcel to drop through my letterbox was this beautiful collection from Pixi Beauty shortly before Christmas. Pixi have got it spot on with their products and as someone who is still fairly new to the brand I am loving discovering and trying out all their different skincare and makeup.

I was very kindly sent this beautiful box which is locked with a rose gold padlock. It is designed like a secret story book and once opened it says 'Open to reveal the key to glowing skin' followed by a skincare fairytale.

The left hand side reveals two of Pixi's Skin Treats - Rose Caviar Essence and Rose Flash Balm. As you can see there is a pretty, pink rose theme throughout this collection. Rose Hip and Rose Flower Oils are popular skincare ingredients to soften, moisturise and protect skin.

Rose Caviar Essence reminds me of a gel/water-based moisturiser and is designed to brighten, nourish and hydrate. Simply pop a coin-sized amount on to the skin after cleansing and toning and it melts into the skin. It is a lovely floral scent and feels really comforting. It also contains natural oils that soften and tone the skin. (£26).

The Rose Flash Balm is very similar to Clarins' and Elemis' versions of flash balm and is a three in one multi-use product that is both a primer, moisturiser and a hydrating mask. I love these types of products and they are real hero products for my delicate skin. I've been keeping it by the side of my bed so I can pop it on at night, and if my skin is particularly dry in the mornings I'll use it under foundation. I have found this really works and helps to brighten my skin.

On the other side of the collection are the Pixi Matte Last Liquid Lipsticks. I hadn't actually seen these before so was really excited to give them a go. There are five in total and the colour options are just beautiful. They range from neutral to very soft pinky / purpley shades and come with a Petal-shaped applicator to help apply the lipsticks evenly. Despite the colours being neutral shades they are very highly pigmented and I find just one sweep of the applicator instantly makes a bold, lasting impression. The colours also set very quickly and dry almost instantly without budging throughout the day!

The five shades are: Au Naturelle, Matte Beige, Pastel Petal, Really Rose and Evening Rose. Each lipstick costs £16.
