Pixi by Petra Eye Bright Primer

Hello Every! Long time no talk! Finally updating my blog with some recent loves! Today, my review is on the Pixi eye bright primer! If you haven't heard about pixi, here is the pixi website where you can read all about the brand and their products! This particular product was a swag item from Generation Beauty 2013. Don't know about Genbeauty? Here is the link to my vlog and shopping owl from my first experience! Anyways back on track, here is the primer!
 I am a big fan of Pixi's packaging! I love the color and how simple, but beautiful it is! The fact that everything is in a green color makes me happy because it's my favorite color and it makes me happy.

 It comes in a pen form with a sponge tip applicator where the primer actual comes out of a little hole in the center of that sponge tip. I am not very fond of that sponge tip because I just think about all of the bacteria growing on it and it just turns me off, BUT the product is awesome!
 It's a very thick formula and it's pretty opaque in color. The color is in Au Natural which is a basic flesh tone. It's great for covering up any veining that you might have on your eyelids! It is crease proof and smudge proof so it's definitely a great primer for any type of eyeshadow look.
This primer costs $15 which is definitely up there in price. Compared to urban decays prices for their most popular eye primer, this one is more by $3. It is very similar to the Urban Decay primer potion texture wise.
I do recommend this primer to beginners since it does perform well with my eyeshadows! It's great at covering any veining around the eyes as well.

That is all for this post!
Hope you all enjoyed!

IOPE Air Cushion Compact Foundation

Recently I was sent the IOPE Air Cushion Compact foundation and I am loving it!! A little introduction on IOPE: Iope is a Korean Luxury cosmetics brand. They currently hold the #1 spot in Korea as the top cosmetics brand. That just tells you something about the brand already. Their products are AMAZING!!!

Now, back to the IOPE air cushion compact foundation. There are actually several different types of the Iope air cushion. The one that I got is the Air cushion XP which is supposed to give a natural finish. There is also a shimmer one and a cover one.

So, lets talk about PACKAGING!
I love the packaging of IOPE's products. Everything looks so chic and elegant while keeping the look very clean and simple.

The shade I am in is N21 Ice Vanilla. There are actually different types of Air cushions: Cover, Natural, and shimmer. Mine is the natural one. 

The foundation is in this beautiful compact. The design of the compact is pretty simple with only white and silver as the colors and the picture doesn't show every detail sadly, but the white part of the compact actually has a shimmer detail in the color. IT'S SO PRETTY!! 
I am in shade N21 Ice Vanilla. I believe there are three shades which is a disadvantage for all of you deeper skintoned ladies T-T But for all the lighter skintoned ladies,  you are at an advantage.
The Iope Air cushion comes with a refill of the foundation and the air puff. This is great because when you run out with your first one, you have a second one to pop in right away. 
The Iope Air cushions compact is very great for traveling and sturdy. It doesn't leak or move the product out of the compact and also it doesn't break or crack like some other cheaper compacts.

The formulation of the product is very nice. It's so smooth and and it smells very nice. Most korean products are highly scented, but this one has a very light floral scent that is not overwhelming.

Lasting power: Highly efficient. It didn't fade into nothingness at the end of the day.
Price: It is a bit pricey at $30, but it is worth every penny!!

I hoped you all enjoyed this review! I highly recommend this to everyone who is looking for a very quick and easy foundation to use!
