Pixy Eyeshadow Duo in Romantic Poem

You probably know by now that I’m an eyeshadow addict, so it’ll be no surprise to find out that this is one of the first things that I tried from the Pixy launch. I got the Duo called Romantic Poem that contains a pink shade and a mauve shade.

It comes in this cute little pink box. The packaging really evokes a dainty and princessy feel that many Japanese brands use.

At the back you will see more information such as the amount of product (2.8 grams) and the company information for Mandom.

The list of ingredients is found on the side. The thing to note here is that it contains squalene (which may or may not have been harvested from shark liver oil).

The actual palette is really very pretty. My photo does not convey just how reflective the surface is, but it’s a really nice shade of metallic pink. The brand is printed also in front, and you can take a peek into the inside from the top.

The bottom of this palette contains much of the same information as the box back. Take note that the manufacturing date is included here (and the box back as well).

Finally, we come to the actual product! It comes in two small pans with an embossing of curves on the corner. The left side is of course the pink shade, a very light one at that and has a little bit of shimmer. The right side is a dark purple, mauve really, with very little shimmer. The palette also comes with a tiny sponge applicator (which I have not used; I prefer brushes) and some sort of mirror underneath the lid.

Here are my arm swatches. As usual I used the Artdeco Eyeshadow Base for the swatches with primer (the second and fourth). The pink shade is a nice lidwash color, and I have been using it as such. It’s also a nice enough pink that goes with shades from other palettes as well. The mauve shade looks really good with a primer, and I have been using it mostly as an outer corner shade. Carina demonstrates a second use of the mauve, as a blush! We learned this from the makeup demo at the Pixy launch.

In this photo I am using this Duo as my eyeshadow as I described above: pink as lidwash and mauve as outer corner shade. Of course my eyeglasses obscure most of it, but the shimmers in the pink makes it stand out even behind my glasses.

Here is a really sucky close up, which looks overexposed unfortunately. I am highly afraid of looking bruised, so I took it very easy on the mauve at the outer corner. One of these days I’m going to go for a smokey eye and go heavy on the mauve.

I feel like I haven’t used this enough to have a full review, so I’m just going to leave you with my first impressions. I really like this palette as it is work-appropriate and very portable. The aesthetics of the design calls to me as well. The product itself seems good especially with a primer.

  1. I saw this at Watsons yesterday and thought it was really pretty.. I didn’t pick it up though, as I have a strict beauty budget (given my humble income) and I’d rather spend on something I’ll use more often, like their lipsticks. A nice duo still! I really like how soft and natural it looks on you 🙂
