I am so excited to share this independent makeup brand with you! Looxi beauty was founded by a makeup enthusiast named Jessica. She makes and presses these shadows and highlighters herself and everything is cruelty free! All products have a slight sweet cupcake smell to them which I find very nice. If you want to see any of these products on my face, I have many pictures up on my Instagram (@learningtoloveleah) of me using them! I have purchased 5 duochrome (aurora) eyeshadow and 5 highlights to review!

I LOVE these highlighters! They are long wearing and give such a nice glow to the face. A wide variety of colors are available – from wearable gold shimmer to blue and green. Jessica does a FABULOUS job of making sure there is good selection for ALL skin colors 🙂 They are $15 in a compact or $7.50 if you buy them in the pan which you can then pop in a Z-palette.
Bombshell – Described as a reflective, light champagne gold. This color is specifically good for lighter skin colors because it does not show up too harshly. Check the website for other colors that work well for medium to dark skin tones!
Luna – Described as light blue. LOVE this one in the winter – makes you feel like Queen Elsa!
Aurora (Duochrome) Highlighters
I personally do not see much shifting color when I wear these but that does not stop me from wearing them! The formula on these are top notch!
Pandora – Described as a pink to silver to lilac shifting highlighter
Tragic – Described as a pearlescent beige highlighter with a pink shift
Wicked – Described as an icy blue highlighter with an intense violet shift. If you have Luna, you probably do not also need Wicked unless you are blue highlighter junkie!
Aurora (Duochrome) Eyeshadows
Unfortunately, I did not enjoy the eyeshadows as much as the highlighters. They looks gorgeous in the pan and swatch nicely but once on the lid you have to be very careful not to blend them away because they are so soft. I did not see much shift once on the eye either except with Duperstar which is the absolute must-have out of the entire collection that I received. These are $5 each.
Bohemian – Described as a shifting shadow of pink and silver. It looks gold/copper to me once it was on my eyelids.
Genesis – Described as a shifting shadow of purple, blue, silver and green. This color looks light gray on my eyelids.
Duperstar – Described as a shifting shadow of purple, pink and blue. This color is PHENOMENAL! This was the one eyeshadow that I truly saw duochrome once on the eye. There is a light purple undertone with light blue sparkle on top. This shadow lasted about 8 hours on my eyelids (with elf’s eyeshadow primer underneath) until it began to crease. Of all the eyeshadows THIS is the one that I would definitely recommend that you NEED in your collection!
Disturbia – Described as a shifting shadow from purple, gray, and pink. This color honestly looks very blue to me in person. I was surprised it was not described as blue at all on the website.
Omega – Described as a shifting shadow of green, purple and dark blue. This one has a very obvious duochrome shift in the pan and in the swatch but once it is on the eyes I was very disappointed. It looks dark gray and blends out to almost nothing. I have tried it with primer dry and wet and still got the same results 🙁
Overall, I definitely recommend the highlighters and of course, Duperstar. I have heard good things about her regular eyeshadow collection so I will probably be purchasing some of those in the future and do an updated review.
