Pixi - fun colours, cute packaging and natural ingredients make for a line worth checking out!

Pixi has started on it's global expansion campaign by launching in the top 20 Boots stores in the UK.  Adorable packaging, natural ingredients and beautiful colours are what I think of when it comes to this line.  I have heard a few bloggers mention that they don't think there is enough  natural ingredients in the products to actually have any benefit, but I look at it this way:  some natural ingredients has got to be better then the alternative of none, so adding aloe vera to sooth and hydrate or Vitamin E for anti-aging - is better then adding chemical crap that will not have any benefit at all and will likely irritate your skin - just sayin'...

Since it's not readily available in Canada you might not be that familiar with the line and it's high time you got acquainted!   Until it makes it's way to us, we will have to comfort ourselves with getting it from Target in the US or ordering it online at which you'll be tempted to do so when you see their new offerings:

Endless Silky Eye Pen - $14 - I was trying to decide why they were calling this an "eye pen" rather then an eyeliner - I thought maybe it was a British thing and then realized that using it was just like drawing on your eyeliner with a pen!  We have all used the eyeliners that have proclaimed to be soft and tugfree and have turned out to be anything but - search no more, they are called silky and they are indeed!  They are meant to have the intense look of a liquid liner but in a pencil form so even a spaz like me can draw a nice even line!  They contain Vitamin E and natural mineral pigments and are paraben, mineral oil and preservative free.  And best yet, are waterproof, so once you get your line on, it's not going anywhere!  Mine makes it through a day at work and a trip to the gym with no smudging so I'm convinced!  It's available in 6 colours and I'm hopeful they'll come up with more as this is my new fave!

Flawless & Poreless - $28 - smoothes out fine lines and pores to create a seamless, silky canvas with a beautiful no-shine, cashmere finish.  Includes willow bark extract for natural shine control, skin-smoothing silica and salicylic acid to clear and unblock pores and allow for utterly flawless, long-lasting makeup application.  Suitable for all complexions and skin types.

Lumi Lux Bronzer Palette - $25 - this 4-colour palette contains naturally awakening and glowing shades to flatter all skin tones in a sliky, non-powdery mineral formula.  The colours range from creamy nude to golden rose and true bronze.  Each fairy colour can be individually applied for highlighting, contouring and shaping, or blended together for an overall seamless glow.  Contains magnesium to strengthen, vitamin E to protect the skin and shea butter and jojoba oil to nourish the skin surface as well as kaolin to naturally mattify the skin.  I think it's the cutest thing ever!

Smoky Eye Primer - $18 - an ultra flattering, smoky-tinted 'magnet', it locks down your shadow and intensifies the smoky effect, keeping your eye makeup flawless for hours and hours -without creases or smudges!  Vitamin E and Chamomile Flower extract smooth eyelids and camouflage imperfections and lines, diffusing light across the whole area.  It can even be used as a long wear cream eye shadow.  Smokey Eye Primers are water-resistant, long wearing and anti-creasing.  Seeing as my smoky eye look often ends up as an all over my face look by the end of the day, this is a great idea!

Hey Pixi!  How about making your next expansion plans include Canada!
