After rewatching my “New In”-videos, I was confronted with the question when on earth I should feature all the products I had shown you on the blog. I mean, I still have products from a haul in September 2015 that haven’t been mentioned, and miraculously new stuff keeps appearing in my drawers.
So I turned to You Tube for inspiration: Should I do “Follow up”-videos? Just keep doing hauls, relying on the fact that no one would remember what I had shoved in their face anyway?
But then I came across another type of video: “First Impressions”. You basically just sit there, talk and apply makeup. What is not to love?
So here you go: My first impressions on some bits and bobs of Pixi by petra makeup!

H2O skintint No.2 Nude (*)
Water-based tinted face gel evens out skintone and gives complexion a flawless no-makeup look. Hydrating, long-lasting and water resistant. Contains antioxidant-rich green tea, moisturizing rose water, soothing english chamomile and relaxing lavender.
Very sheer. It does even out my skintone, but does not conceal anything and is not buildable to a fuller coverage. The finish is very skin like and it feels light and hydrating on the skin, very comfortable to wear. It is hard to see how long-lasting it actually is, as it is barely noticeable on the skin, but I have it on my cotton pad when removing my makeup in the evening.
Color Correcting Powder Foundation No.2 Nude (*)
Full-cover, hydrating treatment powder. Keeps skin velvety matte and shine-free. Perfect for when you want a natural look, but need extra coverage. Youth-enhancing with peptides, multi-vitamin complex, aloe vera, super fruits and coffee extract to nourish and wake up your skin!
Medium cover, velvet finish and not cakey. The staying power is around five hours on me before I can see it disappear, which is normal with powder foundations on my skin. When you go in with a dense brush, it kicks up a lot of dust.
Mesmerizing Mineral Palette “Plum Quartz” (*)
Makeover your gaze with these pretty eye palettes. Mineral formula reflects light away from imperfections, while gemstone-inspired tones enhance your natural beauty. Six silky shades to use together or solo.
Amazing pigmentation, great blendability and a lovely, very shiny finish. The only downside I can find is that you need to tap off the excess thoroughly if you want to prevent fallout. I can see myself reaching for this palette a lot in autumn and winter.
Endless Silky Eye Pen “Deep Plum” (*)
Waterproof. Gives the concentrated color of a liquid liner in a silky, easy to apply gel pencil. Stays looking flawless all day.
Intensely pigmented. Great to smoke out, but once it has set, it has set. Stays put on my waterline for several hours without irritating my eyes. And it is soft. So soft that I find it almost impossible to draw a precise, thin line and that it needs sharpening after one use. But for a smoked out look? Perfect.
Mattelustre Lipstick “Rose Naturelle” (*)
The ultimate in multi-tasking lip enhancement, this demi-matte lipstick conditions, plumps and protects lips while giving long lasting, intense colour. Added peptides, hyaluronic acid, and vitamins C & E help to create fuller, smoother looking lips.
While it is not the most long-lasting lipstick on me (three hours without a full meal before it started to fade), it is comfortable to wear. I did not notice a plumping effect on my lips and it was not transfer proof, but the finish was lovely and I really liked the shade and opacity of the lipstick,
Have you tried anything from Pixi makeup yourself?
