Judy Travis of It's Judy Time collaborated with Pixi on an eye shadow palette (It's Eye Time) and a lip palette (It's Lip Time). I love how she incorporated the name of her YouTube channel into the names of these palettes. It's a nice personal touch.

Pixi x It's Jude Time: It's Eye Time Eye Shadow Palette ($24) - Sweet
It's Eye Time is a balanced fusion of beautiful light brown to dark brown mattes & metallics. It's definitely for anyone that loves neutrals. I love that it contains metallic champagnes, golds, bronzes & coppers. The black is a sparkly black, appropriately named Night Night. The quality of the eye shadows are excellent! I always use Smashbox primer on the back of my hand, and with only one swipe you can see that each eye shadow is pigmented. I read a review, where a blogger stated these eye shadows barely had any pigmentation and there was lots & lots of fallout. That is so far from the truth! It makes me mad to see those kind of reviews. It's as if they want to throw the person and product under the bus, due to their own jealousy etc. I find it to be very malicious. Beauty blogging & vlogging can be very back biting. So FYI, always read multiple blogs & vlogs before making a decision to purchase a product. So the quality of the eye shadows are superb. It will just be a matter of whether these colors suit your taste. For me, they do. It's a great everyday palette. The only thing I don't care for, is how the palette opens. The lid flips UP. It stops adjacent to the palette. If it went all the way back, it could be used as a stand while applying your eye shadow. I wish it flipped open like a door (but that is a personal preference). However, it's thin & compact, which makes it great for travel. Definitely check out Judy's eye shadow swatch video below.
Pixi x It's Jude Time: It's Lip Time Lip Palette ($24) - Bittersweet
It's Lip Time is just like the eye shadow palette, except it contains circular pans of 'lip cremes'. If you have been following beauty closely, many beauty companies are coming out with LIP PALETTES. Where have you seen lip palettes? You usually see them BACKSTAGE at all the FASHION WEEK shows. Makeup Artist use them! You see them with their lip brushes, meticulously mixing & matching colors to put on the models before the show. You can transport a lot more lip palettes than lipsticks. It makes sense for THEM! But what about YOU? Well now beauty companies want YOU (or are hoping that you) to do the same! I don't know how well this going over. Models, only have to wear what makeup artists put on them for a few minutes (or hours if they are in a photo shoot) as they walk down the runway. People like you and me, wear lipstick or balm either for 1/2 a day or all day. Will you pull out this palette every time you have to reapply (either at work or home)? Do you want to mix lip colors to create new ones? It's a fanciful idea, but is it practical? Well lets see...
Some things you need to know about this palette! These are more like LIP STAINS. When you dip your brush into any of the pans (Pixi/Judy suggests using your finger, but I find that unsanitary), they have the texture of CLAY (not a malleable liquid lipstick). So if you wear these, your lips have to be properly prepped (exfoliated) and moisturized. If not, they will show up any dead skin etc on your lips. Colors! I didn't do very well with the lighter colors. But I normally don't do well with light colored lipsticks. So it may be my hue. In Judy's video below, she mixes 3 of the lighter colors and they look beautiful on her. I looked much better with the darker shades. What's really good about these after you apply them, is that they stay (they don't bleed outside your lip line and there's very little/light transfer of color onto anything your lips touch; try kissing your hand). They are long lasting, but maybe only a 1/2 a day long lasting (with eating & drinking). If you need something all day, this may not work for you unless you reapply. So you would have to bring the palette with you. So as you can, there are a lot of ifs, ands & buts. It depends on where, how long, what type of event etc. You have to weigh what works for you! This palette is $24, which makes each lippie $2. I personally don't like lip palettes. Give me a tube of lipstick and I'm much happier. It may be because my background is Science and they remind me of mini petri dishes that you grow cultures on. LOL FYI I used disposable lipstick applicators for this palette. What are your thoughts?
