Hey lovelies, I hope you’re all warm and well!
Here is the final part of my #Pixipretties review. Last but not least the Pixi beauty X Dulce Candy collaboration. Dulce created a 9 shade lip palette and a multi use brightening and highlighting palette. Both look absolutely beautiful in pan and have universal shades included everyone. Shall we dive straight into the products and swatches?
Café con Dulce
At first glace, I assumed this was an eye shadow palette but after reading up on the product, it can be used for many thing. The concept behind this palette was to help brighten and accentuate your beauty. Dulce created her ideal “go-to” palette for highlighting, cheeks and eyes. With a cream to dry formula, these shades feel so soft and buttery to touch. Really really easy to blend and have blinding pigment. Used with a super light hand you can sweep the colour across your cheeks for an everyday subtle glow or dampen a brush for intense pigmentation. I love that there’s a good veration of shades to choose from. Anyone can use this palette regardless of their skin tone which is something that beauty community needs more of. Pictured below are one swipe finger swatches.
Brillante, Dulce, Caramelo
The first row of shades are perfect for pale skin tones, and all have a golden hue to them. I’ve used these a few times and they look really pretty on the skin.
Piruli, Pan Dulce, Estrella
3 gorgeous pink shades that can be used as a subtle blush or compliments rosy skin tones as a highlight.
Bon-Bon, Tamarindo, Morenita
For me, these shades are too deep to use as highlighter but they double up as the most beautiful shimmer eye shadow.
Pixi beauty X Dulce Candy – Café con Dulce palette final thoughts?
In terms of palettes, this isn’t anything I haven’t seen before. However, I do love the quality of the shades, their lasting power and how versatile they are. The palette is slim and lightweight which means it’s perfect for travel and I think I’ve found my new favourite highlighter (Dulce.) It’s great that the shades can be used on the skin, cheeks and eyes, this palette will appeal to a lot of people. It’s a little expensive at £28 but when you break it down, it works out about £3 a colour, that’s a pretty good deal.
Dulce lip candy palette.
When it comes to lip products, I usually prefer them in stick or liquid lip form. For professional makeup artists though, this is such a staple to have in your collection. The whole colour story screams spring time to me. With 9 large pan lip colours, there’s a good choice but I wish they weren’t all pinks. I’m more of a nude lip kinda girl so I’m not sure how much use I will get from this but anyone who loves a pink lip will adore this palette. There’s a good mix of bold, subtle and muted pink shades which was something I did like about the palette. I gave a few a try and they applied fine with a lip brush. Didn’t look patchy or streaky. The felt comfortable to wear, with no drying or cracking throughout the day. Apparently the palette is formulated with minerals and anti-oxidents which is probably why they feel velvety soft and nourishing. The palette can be used for blush too which is a great touch.
Pixi beauty X Dulce Candy – Lip candy palette final thoughts?
As far as lip shades goes, pink isn’t my first choice, but I’m not mad at this palette. As you can see from the above swatches, the colour is solid and full of pigmentation. I enjoyed how they felt on the lips and I think the colour range reflects Dulce’s bright and vibrant personality. I wouldn’t reach for this everyday, but if I was feeling adventurous then I’d have a play around. For £28 it’s at an okay price point. I just wish there was a nude version with the same formula.
