As you could tell, based on my numerous Pixi reviews lately, I’m simply obsessed with their most recent product launches and their incredible collaborations! I can’t even sit back and tell you which product is my favorite, because they’re all so wonderful! This time, I’m going to tell you all about Pixi’s collaboration with the beautiful Maryam Maquillage.

First of all – I am so incredibly happy for Maryam! She is such an inspiration and she’s the beauty influencer I would like to aspire to be. She’s dedicated her life to beauty, and deserves all of her success! Pixi collaborated with Maryam to create a variety of contour necessities that will help you create a luminous, defined look! Needless to say, they’ve done an awesome job!
Let’s talk about these amazing palettes, shall we? Pixi and Maryam have given us the Strobe & Sculpt, and the Strobe & Bronze Palette. Both palettes contain six gorgeous, pigmented, smooth, buildable mineral powders that last you throughout the day!
The Strobe & Sculpt Palette contains 3 highlight and 3 contour shades help achieve refined lighting and defined shading for a seamless luminous finish. At first glance, I thought that the contours were going to be too dark for my fair skin, but, as mentioned, the shades are extremely buildable. They apply light at first, which makes the powder versatile for a variety of skin tones. I’m very picky with the contour powders that I use, but this palette contains one of my favorite, go-to shades!
The Strobe & Bronze Palette… well… let’s just say that if you want a bronzed glow, or a highlight that can be seen from the heavens, you have to get this palette! There are 3 highlight and 3 bronze shades, and all of them are just amazing! I don’t bronze all that often, as I mainly rely on contouring, but this palette is going to come in handy during the Summer months! And that highlight in the middle… no words! I am a highlight addict, and this shade exceeded my expectations!
And now for the Strobe & Sculpt Brush! I knew this brush was going to be good, but it’s my brush for everything now! This dual ended, super soft, synthetic fiber brush applies and blends contour, bronzing and highlighting shades seamlessly! I’ll be honest, I didn’t think I was going to use the tapered side all that much, but it’s fantastic for highlight! I usually opt for a fluffier brush for my powdered highlighters, but this one works beautifully!
So yeah – I’m obsessed, can you tell? If you see these in Target, I highly recommend you get your hands on these, as they’re perfect for pros and beginners alike!
