Pixi 20 Years of Glow

When brands reach their 20th year in the beauty industry it is quite something. For 2019 it was exactly that for Pixi and to celebrate the Pixi 20 Years of Glow, Pixi gifted me a selection of their bestselling makeup and skincare products.  If you have never been to the Pixi store on Carnaby Street here in London, it is a must visit and one of my favourite places to nip into as I mooch about the West End, the girls in the store are really helpful when you can't decide which product(s) you need.

I am a huge fan of Pixi, ever since I was introduced to Glow Tonic there has been stopping me and over the past few years, I have been lucky enough to try a lot of the brand's products and meet Petra who is the brains behind the brand.  This collection contains a mixture of makeup and skincare and it includes:

The first item out of the box is the Pixi Rose Ceramide Cream Intensive Moisturiser - When I first tried this cream via the Bon Voyage Rose Travel Kit which included a selection of Rose infused products, I loved it immediately and it has become one of my favourite Pixi products.

Described as being an ultra-rich cream which is infused with Ceramides and Rose Oil which work to nourish and deeply hydrate the skin to give it a healthier, more supple appearance and feel.

The second product from the box is one I am sure anyone reading this post will have heard of, seen or even used and that is the iconic Glow Tonic and it is such a popular product, it even has its very own Glow Tonic family.

Glow Tonic is enriched with 5% glycolic acid, which if you are not aware, is a natural derivative of sugar cane and member of the alpha-hydroxy acid family, so the term AHA might be one you have seen a lot of. I have always found Glow Tonic to be gentle on my skin and of course, its job is to exfoliate the skin by breaking down and removing those dead, dull and dry cells that cling onto the surface of the skin. Also included is Aloe which soothes and hydrates the skin, Ginseng which helps to promote cell health and skin vibrancy, witch hazel which helps to firm and tone and then horse chestnut which works to encourage blood flow, giving your complexion a naturally fresh and dewy radiance. A definite must-try product from Pixi if you are going to start anywhere!

I love a good face mist and from Pixi we have Glow Mist, one of four mists within the Pixi collection.

Despite its name, this is not Glow Tonic as a spray but it is described as being an all-over glow mist for a radiant, dewy effect. Formulated with 13 natural oils plus propolis, aloe vera and fruit extracts which include Tea Tree Oil, Lavender, Rose & Lemon Peel Oil, Aloe Vera Juice, Avocado Oil and Hyaluronic Acid, this spray is a bit of a multitasker because not only does it hydrate, protect and nourish, it can also be used on your hair, skin and to set your makeup too. 

Skincare aside, Pixi also has an incredible makeup range and one of my favourite products if the Pixi Eye Reflection Shadow Palette.  Anyone who knows me will know how much I love a neutral eye shadow and this one just happens to tick a lot of boxes for me.

What I love about this palette is that every single avenue for a neutral eye is covered, especially if you like a bit of shimmer. With a mixture of both warm and cool-toned shades, the pigmentation if quite fantastic and if you would like to see swatches, then Gemma etc has some great ones for you to see, mine will appear in a post in a few weeks time as I have reviewed a few Pixi palettes.


One item of makeup I never feel the urge to rush out and buy is an eyeliner, it isn't something I use a lot of, but from Pixi, the Endless Silky Eye Pen is one that I really like.

Described as being waterproof, long-wearing and smudge-resistant they glide on like no other eyeliner I have used, no scratching or grabbing your skin, no need to constantly run the pen backwards and forwards to get a bit of colour, one sweep along the lashline and that is all you need.  If black is usually a colour you opt for, then you will be pleased to know that Pixi has another 25 shades for you to choose from!

The Mattelast Liquid Lipsticks from Pixi is incredible and not too long along I shared a review featuring 11 different shades with swatches right here

Within this celebratory collection, Pixi has included one of the Mattelast Liquid Lipsticks in shade Berry Beauty which is a rather bright berry shade and on the lips, it feels really comfortable to wear.  Pixi Mattelast Liquid Lipsticks are infused with rosehip oil and leave your lips feeling really hydrated.  

The final product within this collection is the Pixi Liplift Max Glossy Lip Plumper and this is the only product within the box I have never tried!

Available in three different shades Honey Sheen, Petal Rose and Sheer Ice, this lip plumper is infused with peptides that nourish, firm the lips. It is described as being a product which 'cools upon application', it features soothing aloe, conditioning jojoba oil and calming chamomile, while the fresh minty flavour leaves lips looking full and there is a bit of tingle. 

I thought this was an amazing way to showcase a brands cult and iconic products, a mixture of what you are good at, skincare and makeup and of course you can never have too much Glow Tonic!
