REVIEW & SWATCHES: PIXI BEAUTY X CHLOE MORELLO COLLABORATION

For today’s blog post, I wanted to do a review for you guys on the Pixi Beauty X Chloe Morello collaboration which launched a few months ago! I’m a lover of all things beauty especially when it comes to more “natural” ingredients which is why I love Pixi Beauty. Their products although natural, are of high quality AND have a functional component to them, which I can appreciate because of the fact that many of the natural makeup/skincare products that I’ve tried haven’t really worked for me. When I saw that one of my favourite brands was collaborating with not just anyone but CHLOE MORELLO, I knew I had to grab every single product… and I am so glad that I did!

 

So I don’t think it’s a secret but…

 

I’M OBSESSED WITH CHLOE MORELLO.

 

 

She’s my all-time favourite Youtube gal- I mean I love MANY youtubers but she’s seriously one of my utmost favs!

With this collaboration, she was able to create 2 products- a versatile blush & eyeshadow palette and a stunning lip gloss.

I remember first seeing this Chloette palette and thinking:

 

I NEED THIS. NO MATTER WHAT- I’M GOING TO GET THIS.

When it finally came out I ran to my local Shoppers Drugmart to purchase. I was so lucky that they were actually selling this palette close to me because it took a while for all of them to receive it and put the display up etc. After purchasing I immediately went home to play with this palette. What struck me most about it from first glance was the fact that it was such a beautiful “everyday” palette that I could also use for very special occasions due to the rosy hues and the beautiful satin shimmer shades. Chloe has actually said that this palette was inspired by “love and romance” (probably in reflection of her real-life relationship with Seba- her now-husband!) which is why she chose these shades for the palette.

 

I loved that she included wearable shimmers and incorporated flattering “flush”-toned pinks that I know would look great on anyone. It’s a pretty versatile palette because it includes both blushes and eyeshadows. I was also able to use the lighter shimmers as highlight a couple of times when I was in a rush & on-the-go which I can appreciate. The less products I gotta take with me, the better!

 

This C$34.00 palette includes 6 eyeshadows. 3 brow shadows and 3 powder blushes. The eyeshadows are all shimmery satin shades- all neutral toned (mauves and shades of peachy-pinks) and the eyebrow shadows come in a light brown, medium-toned brown and an ashy-toned black. The blushes are beautiful as well- 2 pink shades with light shimmer running through it and a peachy shade with light golden reflects. Formula-wise, the blushes are of good pigment, very blendable and easy to work with. They all complimented my skin tone and gave me a soft flush to the cheeks, and the shimmers don’t really seem to show up to much on the skin (PSA for any of you that’s afraid of shimmer on the cheeks!).

 

The shimmers in all of these shades (eyeshadows & blushes) are NOT chunky whatsoever though- very subtle and give a radiance that isn’t too noticeable. I personally love shimmers, so I was truly excited to see that she included a beautiful range of them. The eyebrow shades? I love them! SO pigmented and long-lasting. I was surprised that the powder lasted so long on my brows because powders tend to fade whenever I use them especially on my brow hairs. This didn’t though, so I was thoroughly impressed!

 

Overall I really like the layout of the palette and the convenience of it. The quality is great and the fact that the packaging is super slim means that I can carry this in my travel makeup bag and not have to worry about bringing other products. Is it worth the price? YES! Again, because you have so many products wrapped into one slim little package, why wouldn’t it be? It cuts down my makeup bag by 3 items! I love the fact that if I somehow lose my brow wiz (which happens a lot) I can easily to into these powders and not have to worry about my brows not looking good.

 

I’m going to New York next weekend, so this will DEFINITELY be coming with me. The next product I’m about to tell you about is ALSO coming with me and you’ll see why…

I’m so happy that Pixi and Chloe did such a great job with this palette in making sure that it was easily accessible AND friendly for all skin tones. I do believe that these shades would show up on not just my medium-tan skin but darker complexions as well- that’s how you know this collaboration is truly for everyone- & I LOVE THAT.

 

 

 

LIP ICING – “CAKE”

C$ 22.00

Who doesn’t like cake? I know that I do. Personally, cake is one of my go-to desserts and it’s something I crave for A LOT… & this lip gloss? No exception. This stunning lip product that Chloe created with PIxi Beauty is exactly WHY I love cake LOL. It’s “decadent” layers of 3 dimensional glitter and the wonderful texture of it all- So. Darn. Good.

 

The shade is a golden-champagne with 3D rose-gold/silver/pink glitters running through. At first I was a little hesitant because I thought that the glitters looked a little chunky, but when applied to the lips you can barely feel them.  They give my lips a beautiful shine and truly makes them look juicy. SO yummy just like cake (LOL’ing at myself with all these “cake” references). I like using this on top of my bare lips with a bit of lip liner around the edges. Gives my lips a more “bigger” looking effect.

 

The formula is also infused with nourishing oils like marula and rose-hip which is great because I tend to have drier lips- this definitely helps with that! Overall I truly can’t say anything bad about this gloss. It even smells like a pastry and doesn’t taste bad as well (LOL). Now the fact that this lip gloss is

 

As you can see… I truly love cake.

“CAKE” ON AN ACTUAL CAKE STAND… I CRACK MYSELF UP

 

I  don’t have many lip glosses because I find that some can be too sticky, not moisturizing enough or even last that long on the lips- I’m SO picky with them and the fact that this has made it to my everyday bag speaks volumes. I take it everywhere with me!

FINAL THOUGHTS

 

This collaboration with Pixi Beauty and Chloe Morello is a winner in my books! I can see that not only did Chloe take the time in creating such a sentimental collection that truly reflected her life and relationship, but she also made sure that this reflection was something that everyone could feel. Her happiness truly emanates from this collection and she definitely wanted to share that with all people- no matter their skin colour.

 

At first I was hesitant because Chloe is fairly light and I thought that maybe the shades would only suit a certain skin complexion. I mean, it’s her collection so of course she’d want to make sure that she can use every single shade. The fact that the shades in the Palette Chloette would definitely look great on all complexions is something that I’m so proud of her for. It’s pretty hard to find a one-and-done palette that is suitable for everyone and I truly think that they hit the nail on the head with this product!

 

The lip icing in Cake? I can’t say much other than the fact that you can already tell from up above that I’m totally in love with it… I mean, I carry it around with me everywhere. It’s not sticky, smells nice and moisturizes my dry lips with essential oils. I don’t even use lip gloss that much but this has really made me fall even more in love with the glossy gloss. Hopefully Pixi and Chloe come out with more shades *hint hint.

 

What’s NOT to love- that’s the question.

 

I can’t say ENOUGH good things about this collection. Congratulations to both Pixi Beauty and my fav. Chloe Morello for creating such a successful collab. For the price, you’re definitely getting great quality so it’s worth it! You guys need these products in your life… let me know if you try them out! I’d love to hear your thoughts. I truly think that you would NOT be disappointed though. I know I wasn’t!
