Pixi Eyeshadow Palette - Review + Swatches

I am always on the verge of discovering new brands of makeup and especially when I hear they are of decent quality, I immediately think 'I need that!'. I came accross this palette in one of the looks that Pixiewoo did on youtube. So I went on its website (http://www.pixibeauty.com/) to have a look and they have a pretty interesting and an innovative range of products.

But what caught my eye ofcourse are their Eye Beauty Kits which retail for a hefty price of £26 for 5.82 gms of product :S Looking at which I resorted to ebay to find myself a reasonable deal and fortunately found just one of these palettes on sale for a tenner :D

The palette I got is called 'Mirage' and is a mix of shimmery pinks and browns. I have to say the colors are so quite unique. They all have gold specks in then NOT GLITTER and dark plum color with gold specs is the most adorable one. The texture is very much like Nars shadows so if you're a fan, check this out!

Also whats amazing is that these palettes are available in 13 shades ranging from blues, greens to apricots so there's something for everyone.

The colors are pigmented enough but not overpowering simply because the colors are slightly sheer in this palette. You can even use these wet! The two eyeshadow base that come with this are awesome too as they hold the shadow very well. But i guess these bases are not a part of the palettes anymore :( You will get 8 shadows instead! So quality wise these are top class indeed.
Coming to the packaging,

I was literally OMGing when I saw it. It comes in a ultra slim white case with a mirror and a brush which is UBER CUTE! It fits in my palm and is slimmer and sleeker than you can imagine! You will be shocked as to how compact it is hehe. The packaging is much like what I would want palettes to look like in the future lol. It will be a favourite for handbags and travel purposes.

But the white was too plain for my liking so I pute some cutesy stickers I had to pep it up a bit :D Also the dual ended brush it comes with is of superb quality too, just like the Mac SE's :O I am planning to get more of these babies in different shades for sure.

Overall Verdict! 4/5 (one point off due to pricey pricing :S) - This one should be up for grabs if you can find a bargain!
