Wearing Pixi All-Over Magic Powder in No. 2 Rose Radiance on the apples of my cheeks and No. 3 Brightening Radiance on my upper cheekbones
These new Pixi All-Over Magic Powders ($24 each) take me back to my teens, and those kinder, gentler days when I’d wake up every morning with a built-in youthful glow.
Subtlety and sheen characterize the three brightening blushes and highlighters (one isn’t shown here), each of which contain five colors designed to be swirled together when applied.
No. 2 Rose Radiance (applies as a warm pink with shimmer)
No. 3 Brightening Radiance (applies as a light pinkish peach with shimmer)

Normally, I would have added these soft, blend-able textures into my regular rotation of blushes without a second thought, but dayum! — they’re powdery as all heck. When applying them I have to be sure to hold the pan over the sink, and well out away from my clothing, because the grains get all over the place when I swirl the brush in the pans.
They’re a recipe for a messy counter, but I sure adore the natural flush and light sheen these lend my cheeks.
PRICE: $24 each

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Good morning and happy Tuesday, babe! How’s your day coming along? I can’t believe I actually dug out my Halloween decorations from the closet last night. Can you believe it’s already that time again? Seems like only yesterday we were talking beehives, and now here it is again!
