Pixi By Petra – My Favourite Items

I love make-up.  Fact.  I could probably spend a whole day in Selfridge’s trying out the newest and greatest offerings from all of the beauty houses.  I am like a magpie; drawn to anything shiny and pretty.  It is not just the beautiful packaging and breathtaking counter-top displays that stop me in my stride, but also the whole experience of trying something new and being transported, albeit momentarily into the land of all that is beautiful.

During a recent shopping trip to London, I stumbled across the Pixi By Petra’s Flagship store in Soho and simply had to pop in.  As a huge fan of their make-up, I was keen to see what the flagship store would have to offer.



Upon entering I was greeted by two perfectly made-up assistants, who were quick to offer me assistance, advising me of the most popular items and the new items.


I couldn’t wait to have a peruse through the shop and stopped at all of the beautifully laid out displays.  It felt like an oasis, away from the busy hustle and bustle of London foot traffic.


I am a huge believer in the fact that primer is a must for all who wear make-up.  Especially for those of us who have ridiculously long days and want to make it to the end of the day without looking like Freddie Kruger.  I love Pixi Flawless Beauty Primer so had to pick some of this up.  It smells wonderful and keeps my make-up in place.  Being someone that has larger pores, this primer really helps to give my foundation that smooth finish I am after.


I also absolutely love the Rose Oil, from their skincare collection.  We are all aware that facial oils are huge right now, and this one from Pixi feels like a facial in a bottle.  Its sweet smell and luxurious texture are the perfect finish to my evening skincare routine.  I often have breakouts and patchy skin and this really helps to re-invigorate my skin.  I cannot recommend it enough!


As you can probably tell from my pictures, I have extremely bushy brows.  I try to tame these as much as possible, through frequent visits to the Brow Bar and intermittent preening, but they grow at alarming speed!  I am fortunate that this is on trend right now, (flashback to the early 2000’s, I was one seriously unfortunate teenager!)  I have struggled for some time in finding a brow palette that fits my eyebrow colour.  They are extremely dark, but so many of the pencils I have tried seem to have a reddish tone to them, leaving an un-natural looking set of brows.  I’ve tried a lot of powder sets for brows, but find that they are either too pigmented, or not pigmented enough.


When I stumbled across the Pixi Brow Powder Palette set, I was transported to brow-heaven.  There are 6 shades in total to shape, sculpt, fill and highlight my brows.  You only need a little to get the natural finish we all want.  A small highlight under the brows gives that really defined arch.

If you are ever in London stop by!

Much Love,

Lisa xx

    I’m intrigued about the rose oil blend! I’m not much into make ups but i do collect lipsticks! I’m also into creams and it’s my first time to see a rose oil blend. So i might check this out! Thanks for sharing!

  36. April 27, 2017 / 8:04 am

    I am a girl, but I don’t pay much attention to make-up. I mostly use just powder, mascara and eye-shadow, but I still enjoy how other girls are a true artists with make-up. This Pixi collection looks really cute and it’s something that I would be willing to try. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    I’d never even heard of Petra, being a long term Lancome and Lauder user. But I do like the sound of your descriptions, and will be checking out their site.

  46. April 27, 2017 / 2:30 pm

    I am a makeup fanatic, however I actually have never tried PIXI. After reading this, I will for sure pick one up on my next trip to Ulta or Sephora.

    • wonderlingblog
      April 27, 2017 / 6:32 pm

      I am sure Sephora sell it.. definitely worth trying.. I have tried so many Face oils since they took off and I love this one and also Clarins Lotus Huile Oil.

    Thanks for sharing. I love the smell of rode oil, but I have naturally oily skin. Do you think it would be ok or should I stay away?

    • wonderlingblog
      April 27, 2017 / 6:31 pm

      Totally.. I have oily skin too but it doesn’t irritate or worsen it.. I wear it at night before I sleep not in the am before make-up and swear by it. My skin feels and looks so much more even and patch free since using it!

  48. April 27, 2017 / 6:12 pm

    I love love love anything Rose so I am definitely looking into getting some of the Rose oil. We don’t have a store but they carry it at my local Target, thank goodness!

  49. April 27, 2017 / 11:31 pm

    I will have to check them out. I am just getting into makeup if I am being honest. My mom didn’t care for any girly stuff so taught me non of it.

  50. April 28, 2017 / 12:52 am

    Thanks for sharing your favorite. I love their Brow Powder eyeshadow palette. It’s so pigmented and so pretty in shades. Pixi make good quality products.

  51. April 28, 2017 / 8:57 am

    I researched about these products before I do this comment, and they seem all positive feedback from customers. Nice!

  57. April 29, 2017 / 3:55 pm

    Make-up isn’t my thing but colors are always beautiful in my eyes. Brown palette is always lovely and sophisticated for me. I’ve never heard of Pixi By Petra but I can let my girl friends know about this since they’re my make-up enthusiasts.

  58. April 29, 2017 / 5:31 pm

    I must try this! I love the brand especially since they’re cruelty free. They have awesome shades when it comes to palettes and lippies as well.

  59. May 1, 2017 / 5:38 am

    I love trying new facial oils cause they’re amazing. Will be checking out the Rose blend oil because I love the scent of roses and just love trying something new. Thanks for the recommendations!

  60. May 2, 2017 / 6:01 am

    I like the Pixi neutral eyeshadow palette coz it very versatile and easy to blend. And not to expensive 🙂
