Pixi Eyeshadow Compact

Sorry I haven't posted in a while, I have been really busy! I did, however, have a chance to pick up some new makeup on my latest trip to Target. I was at Target and I started looking at all of the cool makeup that they have now. They have some really nice stuff lately from makeup artists, it looks like the kind of makeup that you would find at the mall.

So, I came across this brand from London called Pixi. They have some really cute makeup. I absolutely fell in love with this eyeshadow. The compact I bought (pictured above) is Bitter Sweet Cacao and it is beautiful! It goes on great and blends well (not your usual drugstore makeup for sure). The compact isn't cheap - it's $28, but it's really worth it. You get 8 colors of eyeshadow so that you can create a lot of different looks.

Pixi also carries really pretty lip gloss, plumping lip gloss, bronzer, eyeliner and some really cute lip/cheek balm. That's about all I can remember right now. I want to pick up some lip gloss next time, they didn't have the color I wanted.

Janson Beckett - Sun Block Daytime Moisturizer SPF 40

I have been using this SPF moisturizer from Janson Beckett for a few weeks and am quite happy with it. This sun block goes on smooth and doesn't feel sticky like most sun blocks do. It's more like a regular daytime moisturizer than a sun block.

It makes your face look great and feel soft. You can wear this alone or under your usual moisturizer, but with an SPF of 40, it really isn't necessary. Makeup goes on fine over this, actually even better than some moisturizers I have used.

Sometimes, I wear this if I want to tan or just as my usual sun block under makeup. Either way, this is a great product. You can get it at for $ 34.95.
