Beauty: Pixi Cosmetics @ Target

pixi FI

 

As I’m sure most of us LOVE Target, we know that they carry all major cosmetic brands.  Although while shopping there the other day, I stumbled upon this new (to me) product called Pixi.  This line caught my eye due to two things, one, the price ($9-30) and two, the subtleness in the colors and pallets.  For the girls out there that like to wear make-up but like a more natural look, this line is something that you might want to try!  Affordable and diverse, Pixi is high on my new make-up list! Avail at Target stores.

She got the look 70 % right the makeup instantly deducted 30 %. Without the unique make up she would look 100% amazing!  Check out my math skills! lol What do you guys think?
