The Pixi Eye Reflection Shadow Palettes are described as having richly pigmented, mineral eyeshadows that have a 3-D effect to add depth and dimension. These eyeshadows do not only give a brightening lustre effect, they are also good for the skin, formulated with Skin Conditioning Emollients that smoothes and hydrates and Vitamin E to nourish and protect. I’m going to show two of the palettes in today’s post.
There are three Pixi Eye Reflection Shadow Palettes available. I’ve received two of them, which are Natural Beauty and Reflex Light. The palette looks very simple, is made of plastic and contains twelve eyeshadow shades with a total weight of 16.5 grams. I personally find the packaging to look a bit cheap for its price range but the palette base does feel sturdy.
Eye Reflection Shadow Palette in Natural Beauty
Here are the swatches of the Pixi Eye Reflection Shadow Palette in Natural Beauty, swatched from left to right, top to bottom.
This palette contains natural shades with different types of finishes to create a complete eyeshadow look. The eyeshadows feel soft, are nicely pigmented and glide easily onto the skin. The only shade that I had a little bit of trouble with was Metal Mauve, which has a kind of flaky formula. I also find a lot of shades to be very similar, such as Chocolate Brown and Cocoa Shimmer.
For this look, I used the shades Rose Clay as a transition shade and bottom lid, Deep Taupe on the crease and bottom lid, Metallic Rose on the inner 2/3rds of the upper lid and 1/3rd of the lower lid, Chocolate Brown on the outer 3rd/Outer V of the lids and Antique Rose as an inner corner highlight.
I really enjoy this palette. The matte shades are buildable and blend beautifully without fallout. The foiled eyeshadows look beautifully bright and reflective.
Eye Reflection Shadow Palette in Reflex Light
Here are the swatches of the Pixi Eye Reflection Shadow Palette in Reflex Light, swatched from left to right, top to bottom.
This palette contains metallic/shimmer and foil shades only, which is not my preference to create a complete look with, I would probably use this more as an additional palette. All the eyeshadows feel very soft and buttery. The medium to dark shades have an intense pigment and glide easily onto the skin. The lighter shades look more diffused but still are nicely intense.
For this look, I used the shade Copper Penny all over the lids, Cocoa Glaze on the outer 3rds of the lids and crease, and blended Brilliant Bronze and Nude Lustre as an inner corner highlight.
Even though there are no matte shades in the palette, you can see that it is still possible to create a complete look. I do think they’re nice eyeshadows, apply and blend easily with no fallout.
Overall, the Pixi Eye Reflection Shadow Palettes can create beautiful looks and have a good quality of eyeshadows, but might be very boring. There are plenty of other palettes that have the same quality in pigment and blendability and contains shades that many people already own. Even though the foiled shades look very reflective, the shades themselves aren’t very special. One difference is that these eyeshadows are formulated to also be nourishing for the skin.
Since the quality is good I would recommend them if you think it’s important that eyeshadows also have skincare ingredients. Therefore, this might be a good option for those that prefer skincare and make-up in one product. The Natural Beauty Palette is beautiful if you love nude looks. The Reflex Light palette is good in you are looking for a variety of shimmer/foil shades to apply on the lids.
Which of the two palettes would you prefer?
