Hautelook had a sale on Pixi Beauty cosmetics a few weeks ago and I was enthralled to see this palette, Lumi Lux Bronze (No. 1 Rosy Sunshine). About $26 at Target or $25 at pixibeauty.com, I got this for less than $10, a steal it was!

|The packaging is mint green with bronze floral imprints|
Oh how I love thee! This kit has three ‘lil fairies dancing in the pink forest (there goes my imagination again). The palette is so cute I don’t even want to swatch it!
More than a bronzer! This palette is labeled as a bronzer but it goes beyond that. Each fairy has a unique shimmery hue that you can use as eye shadows (rose-mauve, bronze, champagne); The pink background can be used as stand-alone blush; Or sweep all colors to achieve a healthy bronze glow.
The colors are subtle when used as eyeshadows but should be applied light-handedly for blush- on or bronzer as they have a tendency to appear dark and muddy (I am fair-medium).

I swept all colors for cheeks/ cheekbone
- Lovely packaging
- Value for money: 5.68g/ 0.oz and considering I got this on sale at Hautelook, I am dancing like a fairy!
- Multi-tasking; ideal for travel
- If you are a sucker for deeply pigmented -matte hues, this shimmer palette may not be for you
- Tendency to appear muddy for light-fair skinned when used as blush-on or bronzer (go easy and light with application; tap off the excess before sweeping onto your cheeks or cheekbone)
4/5 Must Try!
On a side note, Hautelook is a membership site (it’s free to sign up) where you get exclusive deals on mid to high-end brands on clothes, bags, accessories, makeups, shoes, travel, etc. These deals are not available elsewhere, they come in very limited quantities, and usually run for 3-7 days only. Ergo, if you find something that truly interests you, click and buy because the item stays in your cart for a tad 15 minutes only.
