Several days ago, I attended the Pixi Fall Collection launch at Earth Kitchen in BGC. I was only too happy to tag along my friend Kira of Elegantly Wasted, and of course catch up with the blogging community!
Glamourbox, the official distributor of Pixi products in the Philippines, always does the most quaint, intimate and thoughtful of events..it’s always a treat to go! They also have a not-so-large team, so it’s always a very casual and friendly affair. And oh. I love how they discover the perfect complementary venue for the brand they’re doing an event with!
But of course, the new products take the cake, or at least in my eyes they do! It’s always so thrilling to see new offerings from a brand like Pixi because I feel it has a good pulse of its market, and that’s me (and you, I suppose)! I’ve written about Pixi and its founder Petra Strand here, and if you’re a sometime reader of this blog, you would know how I like their products—very natural, prettifying and glow-inducing! A working mom with all sorts of activities on the side like me appreciate the low-key and subtle aesthetic of Pixi, their products are very easy to use and hard to make mistakes with.
Swatching, first order of business!
For this fall season, as nights go longer and temperatures dip lower (hopefully!), Pixi offers products that help us hold on to what little glow we can, and then some, hence, #pixiglow.

And of course, the star of this collection, the best-selling cult favorite and much anticipated PIXI Glow Tonic, an exfoliating facial toner has both beauty pros and enthusiasts abroad raving!
I’m most excited to road-test this one, which is quite surprising for a makeup-loving fiend like me. I’ll do a post in a few weeks, as I really want to be throrough and report on actual results. Meanwhile, stay tuned for an FOTD post on these products I got to take home with me:
If you aren’t excited to pick up a thing (or three) from the new Pixi lineup, just remember that the holidays are only a few beats away..and you better prep early and get that glow going for all the socialising and partying you’re bound to do!
