First Impressions KIKO and pixi makeup

Do you remember the „Bag of Empties“ I showed you in a recent video? I have a similar one filled with new makeup goodies that I wanted to try on camera. It takes a lot of self-control not to just rip them open once I have them, but I really want to be more mindful about the things I own and use, so I made myself wait.

 

First Impressions KIKO and pixi makeup

 

Until today: Time to dig into some fresh stuff. Live and on camera! KIKO is a brand I had on my mind quite some time already, and despite owning a few bits, I did not feel ready to form an opinion on the brand.

And we all know, having a proper opinion on a makeup brand is quite important.

pixi on the other hand is a brand that I have worked with before, and while I am excited by their skincare, the makeup I tried was nice, but not mind-blowing. And nice is never enough in this world of competitive makeup.

First Impressions: Anastasia Beverly Hills, Becca, Revlon and more

After the positive feedback I got on my latest First Impressions video (watch here in case you missed it), and because they are so much fun to film, I decided to stick to the concept and do another one.

 

The one thing I need to work on is my language (you´d think I would have learned that by now, with a two year old around that repeats everything) and my rambling. Oh wait, that makes two things. Maybe on my maths as well, to make it three.

But without further ado, here is the video and my thoughts on the products.

First Impressions: Pixi by petra makeup

After rewatching my „New In“-videos, I was confronted with the question when on earth I should feature all the products I had shown you on the blog. I mean, I still have products from a haul in September 2015 that haven’t been mentioned, and miraculously new stuff keeps appearing in my drawers.

So I turned to You Tube for inspiration: Should I do „Follow up“-videos? Just keep doing hauls, relying on the fact that no one would remember what I had shoved in their face anyway?

But then I came across another type of video: „First Impressions“. You basically just sit there, talk and apply makeup. What is not to love?

So here you go: My first impressions on some bits and bobs of Pixi by petra makeup!
