I know I’ve been featuring Pixi Beauty on the blog quite often lately, but in all honesty, I have a serious crush on the products I’ve been trying from the brand.  Between the influencer collaborations to products they’ve been releasing consistently, I have definitely been crushing on the Pixi by Petra.  Today we’re going to chat about some of their Skin Teats – like literally, that’s what tab they are labeled under on the website (and with good reason, because they totally are).  These beauty mists have been my lazy girl best friends lately and I am excited to share them with all of you.

Everyone knows that a great makeup or skincare mist for the face is definitely essential but in some cases, it’s a luxury that many can’t afford.  However, over the last year or so – brands have been coming out with affordable versions and Pixi is definitely killing it in the game.  At just $15.00 each, you can’t help but want to give these babies a whirl and see how they work.  I have been using these skin treats mists now for at least 2 months and boy oh boy, I’m in love.

The Hydrating Milky Mist is one I had on my mind for a few months and I was so excited to get it in my recent box to try.  This deeply hydrating mist provides and invisible layer of skin-soothers and is the ultimate remedy for dry skin like mine.  It’s feather light and offers your skin a surge of hydration with hyaluronic acid to help plump the skin.  It’s perfect for all skin types and provides a blend of black oat, provitamin A, and linoleic acid to rejuvenate the skin and provide a perfect first layer of moisture before you apply serums and makeup.  I shake my bottle and spray onto my skin in the morning or night (or anytime I feel my face needs a little hydration).  It’s easy to apply and one of my favorites.

Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Dipropylene Glycol, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Phenoxyethanol, Polyglyceryl-10 Oleate, Ethylhexylglycerin, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Cetearyl Isononanoate, Allantoin, Ceteareth-20, Trideceth-10, Hydrolyzed Glycosaminoglycans, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Glyceryl Stearate, Ceteareth-12, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Palmitate, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance, Citric Acid, Benzoic Acid, Lecithin, Avena Strigosa Seed Extract. 80ml / 2.70 fl.oz

Before I go further, I also wanted to add that the spray nozzle on these bottles is great.  You get the perfect amount each time you use it.  I love it.

The Makeup Fixing Mist with Rose Water and Green Tea has also become one of my favorite products.  Like most makeup setting sprays – this one prolongs makeup wear and keeps it from moving, melting and settling into fine lines and pores.  With the rose water and green tea infused formula, this spray helps to comfort, protect and balance the skin for a fresh face.  I love how it leaves my skin looking hydrated and really helps to give my skin a fresh look, regardless of how much makeup I have on.  I don’t have to worry about looking cake-face with this product.  This spray has replaced two of my favorites because it’s affordable and I love the smell.  If you’re looking for a spray that will set your makeup while adding a soft-focus finish, you’ll surely enjoy this one.

*I use this spray after makeup or spray directly onto my makeup brush before applying eye shadow for a foiled, more intense look.

Ingredients: Water, Alcohol, Polyvinyl Alcohol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Rosa Centifolia Flower Water, Caprylyl Glycol, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Sodium Citrate, Centella Asiatica Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Trideceth-10, Caprylhydroxamic Acid, Glycerin, Chamaecyparis Obtusa Leaf Extract, Soleirolia Soleirolii Extract, Melissa Officinalis Leaf Extract, Origanum Majorana Leaf Extract, Fragrance, Butylene Glycol, Bambusa Vulgaris Extract, Pinus Densiflora Extract, Thuja Orientalis Extract, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Origanum Vulgare Leaf Extract, Niacinamide, Lactobacillus/Soybean Ferment Extract, Cinnamomum Cassia Bark Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Maltodextrin, Ethyl Hexanediol, Calcium Pantothenate, Sodium Starch Octenylsuccinate, Polyquaternium-51, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Pyridoxine HCl, Silica. 80ml / 2.70 fl.oz.

The Glow Mist is a product I’ve been using for quite a few months now and it’s one of my favorites.  Since I don’t use makeup daily and I’m always on the hunt for a glowy, dewy look, I think this product is one that gets the job done when I need it to.  The Glow Mist gives my face a luminous and glowing look while still leaving me with a smooth complexion.  It’s enriched with 13 natural oils plus propolis, aloe vera and fruit extracts.  It hydrates my skin while nourishing and also acts as a makeup setting spray while leaving my skin looking glowy and fresh.  I use it in the morning or evening when I need it and I even spray some on my shoulders when I am wearing something that exposes them some.  I love this product and I absolutely enjoy how it gives me that beachy (just get out of the water from a dip) look without being on the sand or getting wet.

Ingredients: Water, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Dipropylene Glycol, Butylene Glycol, Propolis Extract, Niacinamide, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Betaine, Sodium Hyaluronate, PEG/PPG-17/6 Copolymer, Panthenol, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Macadamia Integrifolia Seed Oil, 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol, Illicium Verum (Anise) Fruit Extract, Adenosine, Rose Flower Oil, Tagetes Minuta Flower Oil, Mentha Arvensis Leaf Oil, Elettaria Cardamomum Seed Oil, Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme) Oil, Eugenia Caryophyllus (Clove) Leaf Oil, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Vetiveria Zizanoides Root Oil, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil. 80ml / 2.70 fl.oz

Last but not least, let’s talk the Pixi Vitamin Wakeup Mist.  First of all, I’m a morning person, so I love a product that just wakes up my skin so that I look like I feel – excited and ready to start my day.  This mist offers a boost to my skin while revitalizing it and giving my complexion an awakened effect.  The orange blossom water base is blended with skin-loving citrus fruit extracts, lavender, and arginine.  This mist helps to strengthen and tone while adding hydration and a protective veil to the skin.  It cools, refreshes and wakes up your skin to start your day.  You can use this in the AM or PM and it works wonders for those days when you feel like you needed to snooze your alarm a few more times.

When it comes to makeup – I have an overall love relationship with most of the things I’ve tried.  I pride myself in the fact that I have favorites from both the drugstore and high end, luxury items.  There’s no doubt, I’m a makeup lover with an extreme cosmetic addition… hehe!  Don’t judge me, lol!  I have been using Pixi Beauty products for a few years now, but today I’m sharing with you a few of my current Pixi Beauty favorites.  Recently I received a little green box of treats and I have been loving them all so much that I just had to share it with you.  Let’s chit chat about each one shall we?

All of the products I got in my little sweet green box were “new to me” treats so I was very excited to dive in and check it out.  The Nourishing Cleansing Balm is something that I’ve had my eyes on since seeing it on the website a few weeks ago.  This deep cleansing balm-to-oil cleanser immediately caught my attention because I cleanse and moisturize with oil daily, so it was something I really wanted to give a try.  The balm melts aware makeup and impurities to leave you with clear, glowing skin.

Retailing for $22.00 (90 mL/3.04 fl.oz.), this nourishing balm has sweet almond oil and cocoa butter and leaves my skin feeling so soft and moisturized after each use.  I love that it includes skin loving ingredients and is not harmful to my sensitive skin.  If I had to choose one of my absolute FAVORITE products from Pixi that I’ve tried, this balm right here, would be at the top of my list.  I LOVE IT!  It’s very rich in texture, but smooths onto the skin so nicely and cleanses so quickly.  It nourishes my skin with sweet almond oil, shea butter and vitamin E to leave my skin feeling plum and nourished.

Ingredients: Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Cetearyl Isononanoate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glyceryl Behenate, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Glyceryl Stearate, Glyceryl Cocoate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Lecithin, Tocopherol, Cetyl Alcohol, Benzyl Alcohol, Fragrance.

To follow the Nourishing Cleansing Balm, I use the Pixi Glow Tonic (100mL / $15.00).  Now – they call this a cult favorite and I’ve been hearing my blogger friends swoon and rave about this product for a while, so I just couldn’t wait to try it out.  This toner is an exfoliating toner that helps give you brighter, more radiant skin.  I have a secret to share… I can’t use Toner often and hardly use it because it causes my skin to get irritated.  I was afraid to try this, even if I had only heard great things about it.  This miracle in a bottle toner helps to bright the complexion while resulting in a healthy glow.  It’s formulated with 5% glycolic acid and helps to exfoliate, brighten and smooth your skin.  With Aloe Vera, ginseng and botanical extracts working together, you are nourishing and treating your skin while revealing an improved complexion.  I also LOVE that this is alcohol-free.  I use this after cleansing and apply with one of my favorite reusable rounds from Facekins.  I don’t notice any burning or irritation while using this product and my skin looks brighter after using it for a few weeks.  While I’m not the toning kind of gal, I think this will be one I’ll continue to use.

Ingredients: Aqua, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Leaf Extract, Aesculus Hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) Seed Extract, Glycolic Acid, Ammonium Glycolate, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Hexylene Glycol (and) Fructose (and) Glucose (and) Sucrose (and) Urea (and) Dextrin (and) Alanine (and) Glutamic Acid (and) Aspartic Acid (and) Hexyl Nicotinate, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Benzoate, Biotin, Polysorbate 20.

The Pixi Beauty Rose Oil Blend ($24 – 30 mL/1.01 fl.oz.) is also a product I have not tried before.  It includes a botanical blend infused with powerful complex of youth-preserving oils to help improve skin’s elasticity and glow.  Formulated with sweet almond, rose hip, jojoba, pomegranate seed, and rose geranium oils to help nourish the complexion, leaving my skin feeling smooth and hydrated… but most importantly – soft to the touch.  If you’ve been following me a while, then you know I’m an oil moisturizer gal – I use coconut oil to moisturize each night with my regular skin care routine, so I’m always excited to try out new oils.  I love this one.  I love the packaging – but the oil applies and soaks into my skin so quickly and easily.  I love mixing this with my standard skin care regimen for moisture that lasts all day and night and my skin feels so incredibly soft.  The oil soaks into my skin quickly, it doesn’t sit on the surface like others can do.  It doesn’t leave my skin feeling oily at all – but moisturized and half a dropper full is more than enough to cover my entire face, neck and decollete area.  If I want to have that dewy/glowing skin look, I will blend the Rose Oil Blend with my regular moisturizer and apply to my face.  It leaves my skin looking and feeling like I just stepped out from under a waterfall – fresh and glowing.

Ingredients: Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Tocopherol, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil, Punica Granatum Seed Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil.

Ah, of course – I can’t leave out a gorgeous highlight, because we all know that Honey loves to glow.  The Beauty Blush Duo & Kabuki in Peach Honey ($18 – 10.21 g/0.35 oz.) is GORGEOUS.  I love a great highlight but I have a skin tone that is not quite dark but not light at all – an in between.  So because of this, a daily highlighter and blush with shimmer is hard to find… well, until now.  This gorgeous blush and highlighter duo is perfect for that lit-from-within look for fuss free beauty in just a few seconds.  Simple swirl the kabuki brush (which is included – woohoo), into the compact and pick up the color to apply to your cheeks for a great and gorgeous glow.  Both powders are super silky and provide your cheeks with a flawless and fresh finish.  I LOVE these for everyday use because it provides me with the glow I want in an everyday product, without looking like I just came out of the disco era… but still enough color to be show stopping.

The natural mineral formula of these powders is infused with vitamin E and mica, so it treats your skin as you wear it.  You get hydration and long wear with light diffusing capabilities.  The Kabuki brush that is included is also a steal.  It’s soft and applies the product nicely to the skin.  Definitely a great duo to have for every day use or those days you are feeling you want a little more glam.  I love golden hued highlighters so this takes the cake for me and the peachy toned blush is perfect for my everyday look.  The blush is a tad bit too light for my skin tone, but that excites me more because it makes for a great everyday flush of color without looking like I just plopped rose colored paint on my face.  I love both shades – both pigmented and gorgeous.

It seems as if I have covered everything except for lips.  I want to introduce you to the Pixi Beauty Liplift Max ($14 – 2.7 g / 0.09oz).  A volume-maximizing lip treatment with peptides to hydrate and plump the lips… YAAAASSSSS… sign me up!  This volume-maximizing lip treatment has a cooling sensation with a glossy finish.  It is formulated with peptides to hydrate, firm and plump the lips.  You also get an added benefit of aloe to  heal, jojoba to moisturize and chamomile to soothe.  With a fresh mint flavor, you simply can’t go wrong.  I have the Liplift Max in Honey Sheen – a gorgeous nude shade.  All of the three shades (including Honey Sheen) are sheer, but they make perfect toppers to your favorite lipsticks or liners and wear nicely.  I’m not a huge gloss fan but I do tend to wear glosses in the winter months and this one is perfect for such.  It helps to hydrate my lips while leaving them looking plump and full.  I am a huge fan of Buxom lip glosses so I had used those to compare to this one.  It seems like this one offers the plumping without the sting and I like the minty flavor.

I think the LipLift Max is perfect for topping off your matte lippies and while it is a bit sticky, it’s not that bad and still wearable in my book.  I’ve been getting lots of use out of this product for a daily lip gloss and I find that it works as I would expect.  It’s a little thick, but still workable and leaves a gorgeous sheen on the lips.  If you are a fan of glosses, you may like this one.

I love when I have the chance to try out new products from a brand I already love.  It’s especially fun when these new products work well with my sensitive skin.  I’ve always been a fan of Pixi Beauty and have talked about many of their products in the past.  I’m loving trying out some things that are new to me.  I’m sure there will be more products in the future that I’ll try and love because Pixi is one of those brands that offer good quality.  Pixi products are a little more costly than your average drugstore finds, but I am so excited to have Target near me now that I can browse through and pick up my favorites.  If you haven’t tried Pixi before, I highly suggest checking them out.  If I had to choose just one item from all of these I featured, I highly suggest the Nourishing Cleansing Balm – seriously, it’s a favorite for sure.

When it comes to lashes, I’ve said it time and time again… but I really wasn’t included in that distribution.  I always joke around about it, but apparently I was absent when they were handing out long luscious lashes and I was left with what I have on my eyes now.  All kidding aside though, my lashes are small, thin and very difficult to see… so any type of product that can help enhance them naturally or give them a little more pizzazz, I’m up to trying.  Recently Pixi Beauty sent me some fun mascaras and lash products to give a go and today I’m sharing my thoughts with all of you on each one.  Let’s get started shall we?

lashes, mascara, pixi beauty, pixi by petra, pixi perfection, layered lashes, lash primer, waterproof mascara, volumizing mascara, lengthening mascara, defining mascara, beauty, makeup, review, beauty review, swatches,

Over the years, I have tried several products from Pixi, but I don’t recall trying any of their mascaras, so this was quite exciting for me to give them a try and see how they worked for me.  I’ve had these mascaras now for over a month and I’m finally comfortable providing my thoughts on each one.

lashes, mascara, pixi beauty, pixi by petra, pixi perfection, layered lashes, lash primer, waterproof mascara, volumizing mascara, lengthening mascara, defining mascara, beauty, makeup, review, beauty review, swatches,

Pixi products (like these mascaras) can be found online at Pixibeauty.com or via Target which is where I like to buy my Pixi products.  There are four mascaras that I had the opportunity to try.  The Black Lacquer Lash Primer, Lash Booster Mascara, Lengthy Fiber Mascara and Lower Lash Mascara.

lashes, mascara, pixi beauty, pixi by petra, pixi perfection, layered lashes, lash primer, waterproof mascara, volumizing mascara, lengthening mascara, defining mascara, beauty, makeup, review, beauty review, swatches,

The Black Lacquer Lash Primer retails for $15.00 and comes in a jet black formula.  This lash primer is a multi-use product that helps to plump, protect and prep your lashes for your favorite mascara.  It has a thick mousse-like consistency which I like and it applies fairly easily to my lashes.  Since it has a smaller brush that has a curve, it easily gets to all of my itty bitty lashes and coats them nicely.  I like that this lash primer doesn’t irritate my eyes, since many primers can do so and it applies without any clumping.  This product works well with layering other lash products so I do enjoy it for that reason and it doesn’t smudge if used on its own.

The Pixi Beauty Lash Booster Mascara retails for $15.00 as well.  It comes in Blackest Blue or Blackest Black (I have blackest blue) and while you could be a little worried about a blue mascara, it’s such a dark shade that it doesn’t look blue on the lashes.  The shade itself really brings out my brown eyes.  This mascara is said to be the “do-it-all” mascara that curls, defines, lengthens and thickens but leaves behind a glossy and waterproof finish.  It has a standard mascara wand, but one that is stiff, dense and small enough to coat all of my lashes for a showstopping look.

I love how my eyes sparkle with this mascara, it’s not a favorite, but it gets the job as the description promises.  Since I have pin straight and thin lashes, I do have to curl my lashes, but the formula of this mascara helps my lashes hold their curl.  It offers my lashes length and thickness without clumping and it doesn’t smudge, budge or move on me.  I will say though, I was pretty impressed at how easy this mascara came off with my micellar water.  Even if it is said to have a waterproof finish, I didn’t have to scrub my eyes to remove the product at the end of the day.

The Lengthy Fiber Mascara retails for $16.00 and comes in a black formula.  This mascara enhances and elongates lashes with its fiber filled formulation.  I haven’t been a fan of fiber mascaras over the last couple of years because my eyes have been so sensitive, so I was a bit worried to try this one out.  Immediately after removing the want from it’s tube, I noticed the fibers on the brush (as you can see from the image above).  I was terribly worried that it would affect me and took my time applying this mascara.

With a few swipes of this mascara onto my lashes, I noticed a huge difference in how long my lashes had looked.  This mascara is a bit different than your traditional fiber mascara in that you apply it over another mascara, versus a traditional fiber mascara in that you apply it beneath a mascara.  Once I figured out how to get it to work, it seems to work fairly well.

lashes, mascara, pixi beauty, pixi by petra, pixi perfection, layered lashes, lash primer, waterproof mascara, volumizing mascara, lengthening mascara, defining mascara, beauty, makeup, review, beauty review, swatches,

With any fiber mascara, it can irritate the eyes if the fibers poke your eyes or get into your waterline, but once I was able to figure out how to make it work for me, I haven’t had any issues and I really enjoy it.  My lashes look fuller and longer and while I did get irritation in my eyes the first time, now that I know how to apply it, I haven’t had any issues.

lashes, mascara, pixi beauty, pixi by petra, pixi perfection, layered lashes, lash primer, waterproof mascara, volumizing mascara, lengthening mascara, defining mascara, beauty, makeup, review, beauty review, swatches,

Pixi Beauty’s Lower Lash Mascara retails for $11.00.  This mascara comes with a specialized slim brush that has short bristles to help effortlessly coat lower lashes and hard-to-reach small lashes.  It has a water-resistant formula which makes it great for the lower lashes and if formulated with vitamin E and panthenol to help the product stay all day – especially on sensitive and runny eyes like mine.

Since I have naturally short lashes, I find this mascara to be my favorite out of the four.  You never think you need a “lower lash” mascara but when you try this, you’ll surely see why it was created.  This mascara and brush wand help to really elongate my lower lashes and separate them easily.  This formula allows the mascara to stay all day without any smudging which I love, even with my water eyes and I love that I can use this mascara to help with clumping.  I apply one thin coat of this mascara to my upper lashes prior to my other mascaras to make sure that I grab all the little lashes that are hard to reach.  This really makes a difference in how my lashes look.

I love that Pixi Beauty offers a unique collection of mascaras.  Since I naturally have short lashes, I tend to layer my mascaras to create a customized effect that will allow my lashes to be seen.  These four mascaras layer nicely together and work well to create the layers I’m looking for.  You can decide to use each mascara together and layer them or use separately to create your perfect lash look.

Overall, if I had to choose my favorite out of the four mascaras that I’ve tried, I think the LowerLash Mascara would be my fave.  It grabs all my little lashes on my lower and top lashes to create a great look.  But all of them work well and provide a great combination when used together.  Even the Lengthy Fiber Mascara impressed me.  I highly suggest checking them out if you are looking to try something new.

Have you tried any of these mascaras before?  If so, what do you think about them?  If not, are there any you are interested in trying for yourself?

I am sad to say that I’ve had these products in my possession now for several months and while I have used them many times, I have forgotten to share them with all of you.  I am still relatively new to Pixi Beauty products (Pixi by Petra) as I have only used a small handful of them.  I’m quite excited that my island now has a Target so that I may purchase more of the products available from the brand, and get to know about the goods a little more.   These Crayon Combo pencils are a part of the select products I have tried and today I want to share them with you.

The Crayon Combos from Pixi Beauty come in four different combinations.  They retail for $18.00 a piece and you can purchase them at your local Target (where available) or online at Pixibeauty.com.  The Crayon Combos are eye pen duos that are designed to either brighten and lighten the area around the eyes or line and define your eyes for show stopping peepers.  Each pencil is multi-use, double-ended and ready to go right out of the box to create a gorgeous look in a matter of moments.  They are formulated to awaken, enhance or smoke up your eyes, are long wearing and offer gorgeous color payoff.  They have been created to be super-smooth with a high-performance formula that is waterproof and can be used on the inner rim.  Each shade is also said to be easily blend-able for a soft-focus effect.

The duo pencils include beneficial ingredients like Caffeine which gives an energizing effect, Chamomile which soothes and Pearl powder which brightens the eyes.  They are hypoallergenic and preservative and mineral oil free.

The first Crayon Combo we are going to talk about is the Softly Smoky.  This double-ended combo has an eye-define pen that is used to contour the eyes.  It enhances with high performance treatment and soft focus colour.  You use this particualr one by applying to the lash line and smooth or smoke the liner out by softening it or wear it as is.  You can also use it to define the lash line and work the pencil up to your crease as well as aply under the eye on the lower lash line for a soft smoky look.  The line side is a deep dark brown that I love to use in place of a black liner and the define side is a gorgeous metallic mocha brown which works wonderfully on those days that you want a smoky look or when you want a little definition to the eyes but still have something wearable.

Next is the Super Natural Crayon Combo.  This is one of my favorites out of the three that I own.  Just like the Softly Smoky combo, this particular duo ended pencil is used to line and create a smoky but natural look.  You can use this by taking the define side to contour and enhance the eyes and using the line side to line the upper and lower lash line to create a wearable look or a smoky glam one.  The define side on this pencil is a gorgeous metallic bronze which I love to wear all over my eye lid for an every day look while taking the line side and smudging it on my lower and upper lash line or in my waterline to define and enhance my lashes.

Last is the Wide Awake Crayon Combo.  This double-ended pencil is a rescue pen that awakens the eyes with high performance and treatment and soft focus cover.  Apply the Brighten end under the eye and on the lower waterline and use the lighten end on the brow bones, inner corner of the eye, eye lids and cupid’s bow to highlight for a wake look.  The Brighten side is one of my absolute favorites to apply to the waterline because it lasts most of the day – even with my watery eyes and looks so natural, it’s perfect for a soft makeup look that makes me look refreshed.  The Lighten side which makes a great inner corner highlight has a metallic sheen to it and offers a soft shimmer for a great look.

I’m impressed with each pencil and I’ll be honest, I really like the metallic side of each one.  But, overall I think they are nice.  They are perfect for those days that I really want a soft and easy look without pulling out eye shadows and great on the go or for travel.  The metallic side of each pencil applies easily and the matte sides work well for liner which I enjoy.  The matte sides of each pencil are a little more stiff (not as creamy as the metallic) but they work nonetheless.  These pencils are claimed to be waterproof and while used on the lid and lash line it can last all day though on the waterline it will fade after a few hours.  I’m still quite impressed with how long they do last though – but from my personal use, I wouldn’t consider them waterproof but long lasting.

They are quite costly – almost $20 is a hefty price point to pay for something like this, but you should get a lot of use out of the products and they are pretty good quality.  I’m not sure that I would repurchase these, but- my mind may change once I actually run out of them since I’ve become quite fond of a few of them.  Overall – I like them, but I think for a product like this – I would like to see them cheaper in cost.
