Pixy Eyeshadow in Sorrel Brown 02 – Review & Swatches
For Blogmas day 18 I am going to share with you a eyeshadow duo I have been loving by Pixy that has been on my eyes and perfect for everyday. I’m also taking this with me for traveling and use it for the upcoming holidays as well.
After receiving this in my loot bag from the Get Pixy-fied event I posted about here a while back I decided to try it and see if I liked it. I then became obsessed with it and found it to be what I was picking up when I wanted a nice and quick color combination for when I went somewhere.
It is available at most Watsons and there is a counter in my local mall which is great if I want to pick up anything else and since I was loving this I might have to try some more of their products. It is an Indonesian product and their motto is “Pixy is a quality casual cosmetic suited for Asian women.”

It is in this pretty pink reflective compact that is small and great for tossing in your everyday makeup bag which is a definite plus for me. It is sturdy and comes with such a cute tiny brush but I haven’t used it yet so I don’t know how it works but if I ever need it that is there for me to swipe on to my eyelids.
The formula is great and the brown color is a nice light brown which is matte but the peachy ink color has a little shimmer and is a nice highlighting color as well and has this sort of pearl finish which I read it is supposed to. They are both pigmented and have decent lasting power without a primer.
I was expecting for it to be more of a peach as that is what it looks like in the packaging but once I swatched it the color turned out to be more a light pink with a coral undertone to it but I think I love it more when swatched then when it is in the container. I was afraid it was going to be dark and not good for every day but it sure was. I only lightly swatched here but you can buildup and I can get a smokey look with the brown or just a very light shade but it depends how you apply it. I love how they blend together and combine well making a nice color mixed on the eyes as well.
Overall, I think it is a great everyday palette and I know I’m going to get a lot of use out of this as it is perfect color combination for me. A nice matte brown paired with a shimmery coral pink seem like a great match for me and it’s like they read my mind. The color payoff is great, there is no fallout from the shadow, it doesn’t crease and is long lasting, it has very pretty packaging plus it is very affordable. What more can you ask for in a eyeshadow duo? It is definitely a favorite of mine and this has convinced me to pick up some more of the shades they offer.
My rating is: ♥♥♥♥♡
Because it is a great eyeshdow duo and It desevres its rating. I would have given it 5 but I think for now it is only a 4 as I don’t use it all the time and dont wear eyeshdow hardly at all. I do also think not using it for a while makes it chalky but I think mine is just getting old but I do still think it is amazing and do recomend it if you come across this brand and shade as it is great for everyday and will be a good purchase.
You can find Pixy now in the Philippines. Here is their Facebook page for more. I’m not sure where to find internationally but I am sure you can find it somewhere.
That is another beauty review for blogmas day 18 and tomorrow is another outfit I did which is quite a stylish one.
*I received this in my loot bag at an event I was invited to but I was not paid to do a review or post this but out of my love for it on my own I posted this review. 100% my own opinion and you can read more about my disclaimer here.
