pixi beauty Lumi Lux Radiance Powder for a Radiant Spring Glow.

Radiant skin is beautiful skin, isn't it? Especially as we get older, adding an extra touch of radiance boosts skins luminosity and an overall look of youth.

pixi beauty, which recently underwent some new website changes (beautiful) has come out with a new Radiance Powder that will give extra life to your look - just with a few sweeps of a face powder brush. It is called Lumi Lux Radiance Powder, and it is as gorgeous on my face as it is in the pretty palette.


The powder is silky, and it illuminates a fresh radiance to face, cheeks, eyes and décolleté. It is a perfect pick me up for the end of this dull winter season. I can see myself wearing this all Spring! With its myriad of peachy gold, rose, pinky peach, and nude powders, my skin is instantly angelic with a soft sheen.

Lumi Lux Radiance Powder is available right now online through pixibeauty.com, as well as in Target stores for $26.00.
