Pixi Fairy Dust Favorites – Swatches + First Impressions

The holiday season always feels like a good time to don all things sparkly so when I saw a set of pigments called “Fairy Dust” I felt compelled to try it out.

The Pixi website describes this product as:

Illuminating powder pigments give concentrated glow & enhancing colour instantly!

There are six colors in the line and the only shade not included in this set is Honey Glaze.  Normally these come in a tube with a sponge tip applicator and retail for $10.00 per tube. The website does not specify the amount of product in any of these items so I can’t speak to the value per ounce. When purchased in the collection of favorites, the entire collection retails for $12.00 so it seems to be a pretty good deal.

The set comes with each shade in a jar and each jar attaches to another jar (that sounds very weird...) so all five shades must be stored together. I find this storage system a little unwieldy and for me i can see myself spilling pigment everywhere in an attempt to close or open a jar.  Hopefully you're not as clumsy as I.

So far I’ve only used these one time.  I wore Brightening Bare all over the lid, Snow Sparkle on the inner corner and Copper Sheen along the lash line.  They applied easily  and wore well with minor creasing which was a surprise as loose pigments tend to crease badly for me. I didn’t notice any fallout on the rest of my face but the shades I used were the lighter shades so it may not have been visible.  I did notice that my eyes felt a bit sensitive after wearing these but that isn’t necessarily from the pigments. I’ll try to report back on that after using these a few more times.
