Do You Believe in Magic?

I've been using this blush every single day for the last two weeks so I thought it was about time I shared it with you all...

Pixi have an adorable little shop just off Carnaby Street in London and when I popped in a few weeks ago, this was the first product to catch my eye... The 'All-Over Magic' powder.
The shade I chose was 'Rose Radiance'. The cute pixie design is made up of five different shimmery colours.

The powder is actually sold as a multi-pupose product that you can use on the eyes, as a blush or highlighter, but I've only really used it as a blush. The colours mix together to make a gorgeous vibrant pink.
It bears more than a slight resemblance to Benefit's Sugarbomb, with the exception not only of the bright pink pixie, but of the price tag too! It's £14, which compared to the £23.50 Sugarbomb, seems quite a snip!

The pigmentation is lovely and it has just the right amount of shimmer. It won't leave you looking like a glitter ball, just positively radiant (which is why I've become totally addicted to it!)
The one downside is the packaging. I love the unusual pale green shade that is Pixi's signature colour, but it has a matte rubberised finish so it shows up every single fingerprint and smudge of makeup.

The two other shades available are really different to this one...
I'm not sure about the look of the bronze 'Bare Radiance' (I'm not a huge fan of shimmery bronzers) but the pale 'Brightening Radiance' looks like it would make a gorgeous highlighter, so I may have to pick one up next time I'm passing!
The All-Over Magic powders are available now online HERE and in store (I also believe Rose Radiance and Bare Radiance are available in larger Boots stores)
