Pixi by Petra Mixed Metals Palette

Pixi by Petra Mixed Metals Palette Swatches
I spotted this palette from Pixi by Petra at Target a few weeks ago and was seduced by the huge selection of earth tones. This is the Pixi by Petra Mixed Metals Palette, it has 10 lustre shades and 2 shimmery matte tones. It’s been a hot minute since I’ve treated myself to a new eyeshadow palette, and since the great makeup purge of last month, my eyeshadow stash is looking quite thin.

Starting from top to bottom I swatched: Fiery Copper, Foiled Magenta, Gold Metal and Metallic Mink.

These have higher color payoff than say a Wet N Wild palette, but the level of pigmentation leaves something to be desired. I had to go in with my brush two or three times on each shade to get enough color. The darker shades blend beautifully but are never going to show as dark on the skin as they look in the pan.

Pixi by Petra Mixed Metals First Thoughts

These shades look vastly different once outside the palette, but are still gorgeous! I created the look below using only this palette, it lasted for 8+ hours without creasing, and these apply very smoothly with zero fallout. I’ll keep this palette in my stash because I like using a lot of these as transition shades but it’s very unlikely that I’ll buy another Pixi by Petra eyeshadow palette. It just did not have enough pigmentation for my taste!
