Watch out Ulta and Sephora (and major department stores), Target has added three professional makeup artist’s product lines to their cosmetic section. These lines are NP Set by Napoleon Perdis, JK Jemma Kidd, and the one I am reviewing today, Pixi by Petra Strand. These products claim to be comparable in quality as other professional brands, and at pricing from $12.00 – $39.00, these items cost a little less than what you may find at a high end department store or Sephora.
I love the colors of packaging of the Pixi line. In pinks and greens, this line does evoke a fantasy of fairies and nature. The colors are very bright and spring-like, with a lot of corals and pinks.
One of my favorite items in the Pixi line is the Illuminating Tint and Conceal. This is actually two products, a tinted moisturizer with an SPF 20 in the tube and a solid concealer in the lid. The claim for this product is that “it acts as your moisturizer, sunscreen and tinted treatment to provide sheer coverage that makes skin appear flawless”. The formula has minerals and it features antioxidants A, C and E. I find the texture as thick as a regular foundation with great coverage. The concealer is wonderful as well, it did a great job of making my under eye circles almost disappear.
A couple of other Pixi items that I really enjoyed was the Rose Lip Treat in LipNude and the Eye Beauty Kit. A vitamin E enriched balm, the Rose Lip Treat feels wonderful and looks very natural on. The Eye Beauty Kit contains eight eye shadows and a two ended brush, one end is a shadow brush, one end a liner brush. This product comes in thirteen different kits, so there are many color combinations to choose from.
These are just a few of the beautiful items included in the Pixi by Petra Strand collection; there is much more to see. Take a trip to Target and try these wonderful items out for yourself!
