Pixi + Aspyn Ovard Glow-y Powder and Eye Accents Review and Swatches
Monday, March 6, 2017
Sponsored/Disclaimer: Several weeks ago, I received a PR package from Pixi Beauty. Pixi Beauty collaborated with four beauty enthusiasts: Aspyn Ovard, Caroline Hirons, It's Judy Time and Maryam Maquillage. I've tried all of the products and will be reviewing each this week. I received these products for free, but as always I promise to give my readers my 100% honest opinion for each product.
Pixi x Aspyn Ovard Glow-y Powders ($16.99 ea) - Sweet
Aspyn Ovard collaborated with Pixi Beauty on three (3) highlighters (one can also be used as a blush). She named the three highlighters after the places she's traveled (L-R): London Lustre, Santorini Sunset and Rome Rose. I was very impressed with all three! As you can see from my swatches, each is highly pigmented and gives a beautiful glow. Rome Rose is such a pretty shade. It reminds me a little of Tom Ford's Love Lust Blush, when applied. All apply and look beautiful on the skin. I was very impressed.
Pixi x Eye Accents Set ($16) - Sweet
Aspyn also collaborated with Pixi Beauty on an Eye Accent Set. This set contains a lower lash mascara and a clear gel brow tamer. I'm a little confused, because Pixi Beauty already had a lower lash mascara (reviewed by me here) & brow tamer. I don't understand how you can collaborate on something that was already made. It does say on the back of the box that these are two of her (Aspyn Ovard) favorite products from Pixi! Well that's different from a collaboration! HaHaHa I just wanted to point that out! But neither here or there, I love both products. The lower lash mascara is my favorite out of all Pixi mascaras. The brow tamer (clear brow gel) works really well in shaping/positioning/controlling eyebrows. For kicks & giggles, I also tried using it as a mascara. However, it neither lenghthened or added volume to my eyelashes. BUT there are two things I want to say. The Pixi brow tamer is very small .15 fl oz ($10/.19 fl oz purchased by itself; $16/.15 fl oz as a set (w/mascara) shown here). You can get Maybelline's Great Clear Lash Mascara .44 fl oz (and also use it on your eyebrows) for only $6.65 (suggested mfg price). Just saying! I've included a video that discusses Aspyn's collaboration below.
