Every so often a new beauty product falls in to my hands and it either sits on my shelf until it expires, or I obsess over it and before long I’m replenishing it and quietly stressing that the company will discontinue it. I then buy epic quantities of it to ensure I never have to live with out it. Here’s 3 of those products….
SKIN: I’m recovering from Winter skin woes and after using my skincare my skin wasn’t improving. Dull, dry and flaky. As a Makeup Artist it’s my worst nightmare. My makeup wouldn’t apply evenly, it was grabbing in the dryer patches and I certainly wasn’t wanting to show up to the studio with bad skin and makeup.
When the new Pixi Beauty Rose Ceramide Cream landed in store I was all over it, actually it was all over me and overnight my skin problem was resolved. I’m still using the ceramide cream day and night and yes even under my makeup before primer. An intensive ultra-rich cream infused with rosemary oil its antioxidant rich and locks in moisture. I actually can’t stop myself using it and have even taken to using it as a hand cream. My only criticism of the product is it’s only 50ml and I’d buy a litre of it if I could because I want to bathe in it.
Get one for you and one for mum’s Christmas stocking. Guaranteed to please with a very pleasant, light rose scent. $40
EYES: If your under eyes are anything like mine, showing signs of ageing and loving soaking up concealer you need to get on board the Pixi Beauty 24K Eye Elixir train. A cooling roll on eye serum containing gold to stimulate circulation, collagen to strengthen skin and peptides to plump fine lines. My concealer application has improved dramatically since using this beforehand and I am noticing less creasing, a common problem as we age and and need concealers more than ever. Needless to say I keep one in the fridge for application when I wearily walk to the kitchen for morning coffee and its a super refreshing morning hit to the eyes. The other in my handbag for a refresh when my eyes are tired through the day.
Because we can keep those fine lines and concealer crevices to an absolute minimum! $35
MAKEUP: How many of us have searched the isles of makeup stores, brand after brand looking for the lip colour of all lip colours? I’m talking about the actual colour of natural lips. I have never been one to wear lipsticks or glosses but when Velvet Concepts released Luxe Lipgloss in “Ballet” I bought it. I feel like I’ve been searching my whole life across many countries and makeup stores for this colour. Not only do I wear it religiously but anyone that walks into the store and asks for a natural lip walks out with it. This will be the best selling colour in this range of luxury lipglosses I just know it! The fact that It contains pomegranate seed oil, green tea and vitamin E amongst other things is just a bonus. The colour is literally giving me life!
https://glamourempirecosmetics.com.au/collections/velvet-concepts/products/velvetconceptsluxelipgloss - Here’s a direct link to Ballet and at $27 I’d pay double to have this luxe, lip colour mimicking gloss.
Both Velvet Concepts and Pixi Beauty are cruelty free and I’m a fur mum so that floats my boat! Use the links to find out more, see the full colour range of the luxe glosses and find more skin treats from Pixi Beauty or drop into the store and play with our interactive stands and chat to the makeup artists about your skin care and makeup needs. If you’re shopping online and need some guidance you can chat direct to our makeup artists via the Facebook chat box in the bottom right during business hours.
