I'm forever going away for long weekends and attempting to pack up my life into a very small case. I've managed to downgrade my hair straighteners and hairdryer into mini versions, even collecting travel sized bathroom products and managing to only pack the essential three pairs of shoes I need. The one thing that never seems to reduce in size is my makeup bag. When I go away I want different makeup for the day, for a casual night in the pub, for a heavy night on the town... cue a makeup bag the size of a small child. This is where the amazing Pixi set 'Week of Wakeup Makeup' set comes in very handy.
The fabulous set contains a different 'look' for every day of the week, which includes three eyeshadows, a blush/bronzer and a lipgloss. (The blushers even have the name of the week stamped into them for a bit of guidance... like those 'day of the week' undies your Mum buys you.) All the shades are really neutral and wearable, (neutral browns, greys and beiges) so there are no scary shades that you wouldn't be seen dead in - of course you can always mix and match the days and colours to create an individual look as you wish. It's not the law you know.
What I love about this set though is how the little drawers underneath pull out to reveal even more goodies. So much makeup in such a small box, perfect for taking away with you or even for dragging to festivals... although the box is card so it may get a bit soggy if the British weather doesn't hold up. I'm new to Pixi makeup, but I'm really impressed with the pigment of the eyeshadows and the smoothness of the blushers; the lipglosses are average and nothing to warble on about though, but they're a nice addition to complete the set. Not only would this make an ace gift for a loved one, but a pretty fabulous pay day splurge for yourself too.
The 'Week of Wakeup Makeup' is currently exclusively available from ASOS priced £25.00
