Makeup artist Petra Strand wants to get people out of their beauty ruts. So she's developed Pixi's Week of Wakeup Makeup kit ($34), with different blush, lip gloss, and eye shadows for each day. I'm trying the kit out to see if all the colors are wearable and to see whether it really does get me out of my makeup routine. To see the palette for Monday and how it looks on, just keep reading.

The colors for Monday were shimmery rose-gold lip gloss, brown blush, and white, buff, and mid-brown shadows. I was a little hesitant about the brown blush, since bronzer is a nightmare for me, but the color turned out to be subtle and nice. The lip gloss was lighter than I would have liked, but nicely opaque and nonsticky. I really like all three eye shadows as well. Check out the finished look below, and check back here tomorrow to see how Tuesday looks.
