I received the below mentioned product to review. Any opinions expressed are my own.
I love my make up. I love all the colors and the possibilities. I love doing my make up. It’s a form of expression for me. Years ago (pre-kids) there was rarely a time that I would leave my house without full make up on. Right down to the lip liner. I enjoyed it. Then it seemed with each kid I had, the less make up I wore. I still enjoy doing my make up for the rare date nights my hubby and I have or the events when I want to make an impression. I still enjoy it. Every time I play around with my make up, I think “I really need to do this more often”

I had personally been very interested in contouring but had never tried it before. I’ve heard about it and watched some tutorials. I didn’t think I’d ever be able to do it. Still I wanted a contour kit to try it out in the comfort of my own home. I’m a quick study. I figure if I had a contour kit handy and watched a few tutorials I’d get the hang of it. So with Pixi Natural Contour Kit in hand and YouTube at my finger tips I decided to give it a try. I dislike taking selfies. I feel like my jaw line is kind of “saggy”. I wanted to try to contour a narrower jaw line. For my first try EVER I was happy with the results:
What do you think? Do you notice a difference?
The other thing I’ve tried to do a number of times was the cat eye look. I tried with my regular eye liner pencils. I just never seemed to achieve the look the way I wanted it. I received a Pixi Beauty Cat Eye Ink liner. I’ll be honest it made me kinda nervous. it was an angled marker looking thing. It said it lasts for 12 hours. The line it drew was very dark and bold. I tried it though. It was the first time I was ever happy with a cat eye look that I did. This stays put too.
This pic was when I initially put it on. As I played with my make up a little more I decided to go a little thicker and bolder to get the look I have in my contouring before and after pics above.
The Mattelustre lipstick quartette gave a velvety finish to my lips. The lipstick lasted too. Normally if I put my lipstick on to go to work or…pretty much anything…it’s gone within an hour or 2. This lipstick lasted 4 hours strong before I needed to reapply even after drinking coffee. AND it didn’t transfer onto my coffee cup. I was surprised.
I have some swatches here of the Mattlustre Lipstick quartette and the Endless Silky Eye Pen quartette
The eye pens were a smooth glide. I didn’t feel like had to drag it and go over the area again and again to get the color depth I wanted it. The swatch in the picture is just one stroke of the eye pen.

I’m so happy with every product I received. So happy I’ll share a few more selfies with you.
