Pixi Beauty

My husband and I are going to Seattle in a few days and so I spent the morning and afternoon running around getting travel size items and getting my eyes checked. When I got home this afternoon I walked through the door and literally went oh my god! I had a beautiful package with Pixi By Petra written on the outside. When I opened it I realized it was their collection of liquid mattes. They have 5 brand new colors that they added to the line. They also included 4 pigments and 1 empty container to mix my own color to mail back in for the chance to get it added to their line!


I went on a target run and I decided to wear the color evening rose. I really enjoyed the doe foot applicator with the divot in the middle, it helped really apply the color seamlessly and I did’t have to use a qtip like I normally would to remove extra color. The matte was comfortable and didn’t feel as dry as other mattes I have tried do. There was no initial transfer. I went to chick fil a and got a milkshake (treat yo self!) and only then did I experience transfer– which to me is pretty normal. RFVZ3982

I’m looking forward to trying the other colors in the line, I am so thankful to Pixi Beauty for the opportunity to try their matte lipsticks. I cant wait to pick a few colors to take to Seattle with me! I’m already brainstorming ideas for my custom color to send in!

I’d love it if you followed me on Instagram!


Here I am, just adding another blog to the hundreds of thousands out there. My name is Carrie, I live in Maryland with my husband and 2 dachshunds.

Hydrangeas and Beauty

The name isn’t ~super unique~ it just happens to generally represent some topics I hope to discuss in this blog. I have always loved makeup, about a year ago I started a makeup Instagram account to connect with others and share ideas. More recently, I have gotten more into caring for my skin and I hope to document some of my struggles with hormonal acne in this blog.

I also hope to share my garden as I build it in the home I just purchased. I typically tend to plant vegetables but my weakness is hydrangeas (can you tell by the blog name). I am married to a veteran and every time we moved I always planted a hydrangea bush next to the front door- it was always something that made each place home for me. img_2794
