Glossy Box Holiday Party - GlamGal Review

I could barely contain my excitement last week. After viewing the fun and frolic from the GlossyBox party in Montreal last summer on Facebook,  I was beside myself with joy at the invite I received for the Holiday Party here in the big city of Toronto!

Adding to my growing anticipation, I saw the swag bags sprawled across a room from the ceiling to floor on Twitter in preparation for the event and well, I was just too excited to contain my enthusiasm all day long!

Pink champagne, candy, friendly faces smiling and more candy made the event a wonderful experience. Many of my favorite companies were offering their products to sample and the Marc Anthony Salon staff were also on hand to make you feel special. I had a chance to visit a few new products and learn about them as well. The best part for me was standing in the life size GlossyBox! I felt like a barbie doll! One thing I have to say about GlossyBox, they are very generous in the goodie bag department, not only did the gift bags weigh about 10 pounds, but a holiday edition GlossyBox was also given to each and everyone as they left the party.
Full of licorice and chocolate kisses, I dragged my swag bag and bloated belly home to see all the wonderful surprises awaiting my eyes!

 The Candy Bar.....need I say more!!

 GlamGlow was there discussing the benefits of their very popular mud mask. A full size mask was in the swag bag. I feel so Beverley Hills already! This is the youth mud made with volcanic rock, french sea clay and green tea pieces


Marc Anthony staff waiting to offer some styling with the latest hair trends at the Braid and Bun Bar. I must also note that a gift certificate for 50% discount on a cut/colour/blow out was in the swag bag, this I am going to take advantage of.
This is the lovely Regina from Beauty So Clean. She was very informative on the reasons behind clean, bacteria free beauty products (loved your accent!!). Just in time for the holidays, Gingerbread and Candy Cane scented conditioning brush cleaners as seen here. You can put these on your brushes and spray on your make up itself, within seconds the bacteria is gone!


 No comment, just trying to have some fun in the photo booth :)

GlamGal feeling like a GLOSSY celebrity.....



I have to say that I was impressed with this product line. Made in the U.S. by Dermatologists, aimed at offering top of the line in skin care regimes. The two ladies representing this line are both mother's of four children each who were so dedicated to healthy skin, they created their own company. Now they are the exclusive distributor to Skin for Life in Canada. They have a "CC" Color Corrective Cream that I was able to try.

 Ahhh....before the plunge into beauty heaven
 This is what weighed ten pounds
 The first to witness the newest colours from Nicole by OPI, gotta love the hot pink
The Photo booth where I made a complete fool of myself, it was the sugar high from the Candy Bar!
There were so many great products available for the trying, Juviance, Beauty So Clean, NYX, OPI, Macadamia, MaskerAide, Elin Bianco and Vitabath. Vitabath had two salon sinks full of their new hand creams and body lotions for the sampling. I know I am missing many great brands that were on hand, I am mentioning the ones that I personally visited and tried.

If this wasn't enough excitement for GlamGal, I was contacted a few days later by GlossyBox, I had won one of the prizes from the raffle giveaway, a Juviance gift box. What a thrill to have a chance to try their products. Can't wait! I spoke with the reps there all about the product lines as well as skin and aging. I am a a student of esthetics and they had a wealth of knowledge, we ended up having quite a pow wow.

My favorite luxury product at the event had to be from Elin Bianco, the hair mask. It is complete and utter elegance. Pink, potent and silky. This mask makes my hair the softest and healthiest it has been in a long time. The scent is classic and very unique. 

So now I am thinking about what to do with the extra Holiday Glossy Box I received.......perhaps a giveaway is order!

Thank you Glossy, it was a wonderful evening!

GlamGal Top Picks For The Holidays

Between all the beauty box memberships I have (4) and the daily visits to my local shopping centre, I certainly don't lack in make up and skin care products. Being an aesthetic student also has it's perks, I get to sample new skin care lines and spa treatments all in the name of learning! Here is my Hot List for the prettiest holiday season, products I am loving.....

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:  This rice based enzymatic exfoliant works wonders at freshening my skin. It eats away at dead skin cells leaving a wonderful glow to my face. Since the enzymes are activated when exposed to water, all I do is lather the powder in my hand with some warm water and apply to my face. As it dries, I apply my wet hand to reactivate it and keep it on as long as I can. In the spa, this stuff can be kept on for over ten minutes while a steamer is applied. No need to scrub or rub the face with this stuff! It does all the work for you!  
Dr. Schrammek Herbal Care Lotion: A gentle tonic made with herbal extracts, this liquid is splashed on my face day and night as a toner. I love this stuff because it is packed with vitamins and nutrients and my skin feels so fresh and alive. A great pick me up in the afternoon as well. I carry a small spray bottle with this in my purse. During the day I give a squirt to hydrate and wake my stressed face!



Benefit High Beam Luminescent Complexion Enhancer:  I picked up an adorable kit at Sephora in Miami Beach this summer, this was in it. I can't go a day without this stuff. I apply a stroke to my cheek bones, forehead above each eye brow and my cupid's arrow, blend with my fingers and voila! A radiant glow! What a difference a little highlighting makes, it's astonishing!



Burts Bees Lip Shimmer: I use strawberry, all natural with a minty taste. This lasts and moisturizes my lips when the heat is on at the office and my dry skin screams for some moisture, especuially my lips.

Essie Nail Polish: "Not Just a Pretty Face" This shade goes with everything and is flattering for a Fall nail, neutral enough to wear with any color make up and cozy sweater yet dark enough that it's trending alonside the dark eggplants and browns showing up this season. A must have!

Smashbox "Girls on Film" Lip Enhancing Gloss: I am loving the shade Overexposed, it's neutral peach for a sexy pout!


Borghese Hydro Mineral Creme Finish Make Up - No. 1: Moving away from beauty balm's for now, I need a little more coverage with cooler air forcing its way in! Although I usually use Cover Girl, I am loving this brand right now. It's thick enough but not as thick as my usual brand, giving just enough coverage without looking over the top or fake. I love their nail varnish so I knew I would enjoy this product. Only thing is I can't stand the bottle upright!

Have a happy, happy holiday :)

Not so Lucky in Love but this Makes Up for it....today anyway!


When I am down in the dumps the only thing that cheers me up is shopping. Shoes, bath bubbles, jewellery, lipstick.....I can count on my Beauty Box memberships to brighten my day four times a month. One would think that would be ample for washing away the blues. Well yesterday I needed an extra pick me up! This is what I got! The guilt from spending the money is superceded by the goodness I feel knowing I am supporting a great cause and organization; PETA. These shadows are cruelty free, vegan and support kind living. I wish everything was just that! Maybe I wouldn't feel so awful.

I was browsing my usual "haunt" at lunch time, there was one of these left in the cosmetic department. I didn't even open it up to see what the colors were! I was pleasantly surprised with the shades!

Thanks Smashbox! (just looked at their site and uh oh... 75% off sale and free shipping!!!)

Luxebox by Loose Button First Seasonal Box for Autumn

I was dying to see how Loose Button would handle the change from monthly boxes to their new seasonal box. Initially I was a little disappointed, I think I was still stuck on month to month idea. After having my box for a few days I realized that overall, the box was good. The products new, and the visual appeal even better! I find with so many beauty memberships, eventually you get the same products as the same companies work with all the beauty box companies. I was impressed that this box offered some new products and companies that I have yet to try. Kudos in that department Loose Button!

I haven't been able to give this post the detail it deserves. I have been sitting on it waiting for an opportunity to add the details I would like to see with a beauty box post such as this. Well, that wasn't going to happen any time soon! I thought it best to at least post it before the next box arrives!!

 
So read on, or should I say look on!


So this is the lovely and sturdy box, a nice change from the original boxes!


The First batch of goodies in the box! Ok, Ok, I gave the exfoliation mit to my hubby!! Not so excited about that item!!




My fav's from the box!! I will forever love anything I get from Benefit Cosmetics, even though I just bought this same item last month!! Figures, but now I have a purse size to carry with me. 


The Eyeko Skinny eyeliner is absolutely fabulous. This is the brush applicator. The brush is excellent quality and the hairs so delicate and fine, application is detailed and perfect!! Love this!
 Well, I have yet to try the lip liner, No Bleeding Lips, the Vichy ProEvent cream and the China Glaze polish. I don't have an issue with the lip liner I use and my lips don't bleed my colour, I will probably give this away. The cream I will use in late Fall when I need some extra help with brightening my face. I will be using the gold China Glaze polish this weekend. I am waiting for a special occasion!!! I did try it on one finger and its divine. Two coats was ample!!!

So check out Loose Button, they have re-vamped their website and I am getting e-mails on a regular basis offering discounts and special offers from various companies working with them as well. I will wait until the Winter Box before making a hard core decision on the "new and improved" Loose Button!

The Skinny on Chemical Peels - Another Beauty Secret is Out!



If you are anything like me, the term "Chemical Peel" has a scary sound to it. I considered anything with the word chemical in it to be a bad thing. Certainly not something I was ever willing to pay for and apply to my face! Boy was I wrong. All these years I have never wanted to explore this strange world of chemical peels and thought they were for acne scars and really bad complexions. There are so many types of new treatments out there, spas are offering green peels, photofacial's, detox treatments, microdermabrasian...the list goes on and on. Maybe the term chemical peel should be phrased "Skin Beautifying and Brightening Facial" I certainly would have tried it many years ago! Why do all these beautiful and famous women have such fresh and glowing skin? Well I can assure you they are using quality skin care products, having facials and chemical peels. The latest to arrive on the beauty scene are laser treatments and dermal-infusion. Let's talk about chemical peels for now! Tried and true, peels have been around for over a hundred years. In 1882 Dr. Unna, a German Doctor realized the benefits of phenol or carbolic acid, derived from coal tar. Chemical peeling of the face was born! Dermaplaning was also an option, yes, scraping of the skin with a sharp blade!! Why even the Eqyptians knew something about peels even though they hadn't a clue why. Cleopatra would bathe in sour goats milk as this made her skin soft to the touch. What she didn't realize was that the sour milk had turned to lactic acid. We have come a long, long way!!

Here is the skinny on chemical peels:

Firstly, you can be any age to enjoy the benefits of a chemical peel, over time the peel can actually help stimulate collagen and skin will look fresher and brighter. Collagen production is key to fresh and young looking skin. The chemicals used aren't so scary! They are derived from natrural sources such as fruits and sugar cane for example.

A chemical peel is basically exfoliation. As we know, our skin rejuvenates itself and as new skin cells produce, the old, dead cells come to the surface making room for new ones. This is called keratinization. Every 28 days or so our skin is rejuvenated. As we age everything slows down including this process. Even by the age of 25 things slow down. Our skin needs a little help to exfoliate the dead skin cells, bringing fresh new skin to the surface. We can use daily scrubs or face masks and these products do work, however they are very "safe" and gentle enough for anyone to use. With that being said, they don't provide a major exfoliation and you won't notice a huge difference.

A lactic acid peel is very gentle, this form of acid is attracted to water molecules and will help to soften and hydrate skin, great for dry skin. A glycolic acid peel will get a little deeper and exfoliate well into the stratum corneum. It has the ability to inhibit the production of oil and create the appearance of smaller pores. TCA peels are the hard core peels. This type of peel is suggested for oily skin that is prone to acne. You will have deep exfoliation and smooth out rough textured skin.

Chemical peels will reduce fine lines and blotchiness, scarring for example can also be reduced. Peels encourage collagen production and reduce break outs as well as leaving a radiant look to your face. Skin is left so fresh, you will feel like a million dollars! 



There are many websites out there where you can purchase these acids and do your own peels, I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS!! You really don't know the quality you are getting and strength. The bottle may say 30% acid but it really depends on the PH level. Here in Canada, only a doctor can purchase the proper medical grade products and Aesthetic professionals under a doctor's supervision can apply these peels. If any average person can purchase the product, chances are it's so weak anyway that you are just wasting your time and money. Let the experts work out a plan for you combining treatments over the course of six months and I am convinced that you will include chemical peels in your beauty routine.

Beauty on a Budget - The Glamorous Girl's Guide to Luxe Make Up on the Cheap

I may feel glamorous, I may be super stylish but it doesn't mean I have all the money in the world to spend on expensive, high end beauty products. I am talking about the beauty products that just knowing it's expensive, makes it somehow better...you know what I mean. Smashbox or Stila and Lancome. Benefit is also up there, lovely but very pricey. The essentials, the stuff that never has a price on it. There are many products that are excellent quality and relatively priced too. I think of E.L.F. or Cargo, even Pixie off hand.  All of these items sure do dent the pocketbook. What if you try on that pressed powder at the store or the foundation that looks great in the lights of the beauty counter, yet at home becomes far too dark, or in my case too light. I spent $55.00 on a foundation that was too light. I looked like a corpse!  Well my beauty cohorts, there is a cheaper way to enjoy these luxe products on a budget and here is how.....

Yes, the truth is out! Behold,  Beauty Box Memberships! I cannot express to you how many wonderful, full size cosmetics from nail polish to blusher to primer to eye lashes that I have received and thoroughly enjoyed knowing how great they are and how little I paid for them! Try $10 a month with free delivery! Yep, I know crazy right! I can't even walk out of a drug store with one nail polish or lipstick for that price and each month I am guaranteed to get a few full size luxe products in my beauty boxes. Being the GlamGal that I am, I have three of these memberships, one would be just incredibly naive and foolish! I spend $37.00 a month on these subscriptions and between all three, I receive minimum 14 products. Out of those, I usually end up with 5 at a minimum of full size products and usually more. It doesn't take a brain surgeon or Einstein to figure out that this is a great deal. You can always be assured that a great coupon or promo will be enclosed as well. I have yet to be disappointed with my boxes. There are so many products that I never would have tried if not for these subscriptions, mainly because of the cost. I am not very good at determining at times what colours work best and I am so angry at myself when I purchase a lipstick or other cosmetic product that doesn't suit me when I get home. Problem is you can't always return these purchases for a different shade. The day I bought a Benefit lipstick comes to mind. I must have spent an hour at the drugstore crouched down testing the shades over and over on my hand. Convinced I found the right shade, I spent over $20.00 on the lipstick only to go home, excited to wear it and it was just so dark, it made me look much older than I already am and it was such a bad shade of pink for me. I never wore it. Goodness! that money could have paid for two Glymm boxes and at least 8 different products! Yes, I have received a box or two that didn't jump out and say, "I am fabulous" but the next month always makes up for it.

Here is the low down on the boxes and remember, you can cancel your membership anytime without penalty, you receive a credit card invoice each month and notification from Canada Post when your box has been shipped so you can track it:

Glossy Box:  This box is $15.00 per month. 5-6 products per box. Collect Glossy Dots by filling out short survey's and earn free boxes. Glossy is taking over, Started in Europe and made its way to Canada, in June they introduced the first Glossy Box USA. Glossy Box doesn't mess around, they are out to be the number one beauty box on the market. You will find products that aren't considered high end though but Glossy Box doesn't proclaim to provide high end. I have heard many a complaint about this. However you always get full size products so it works itself out in the wash so to speak. If you don't mind getting drug store brands like Aveeno, Curel, Wella,  but they will be full sized. There are unique products in their too, the fun is not knowing what goodies you will get! Glossy Box seems to be the most popular, this is due to the weight of the box, full size shampoo or body wash for example. If you want to join the beauty obsessed community and a discount on your first box, simply use coupon code/promo GLOSSY14 at check out and get 10% off your first Glossy Box.

Glymm:  Ahh Glymm, a little french inspired beauty box that just went Green. Now instead of a box you get a make up bag full of goodies. 4-5 to be exact. I love Glymm because I always get something unique and inspiring. I have yet to see a cheap name brand in here although the usual complainers complain that they get too many samples and not full size products. I don't know where Glymm or any other beauty box company for that matter has claimed to provide full size products. Some people would rather get full size common products over unique and luxe. Again, I love the quality products and don't mind getting one box where there are not any full size products, if I am getting a 10 mL sample of something worth $75.00, how can I complain over $12 a month? Glymm just raised their price to $12 from $10, still a great deal. You also fill out survey's and earn points towards purchases in their online shop, and adding more and more new products each month. As soon as they feature products in their box/bag, they come to the shop. Glymm Man has also recently been introduced, great for the special man in your life!

Loose Button 'Luxebox': This was the first beauty box I ever signed up for.  I got sucked in big time through an e-mail advert and the rest is history...sweet make up addiction history. I had never heard of these boxes before and POOF, I was hooked. I signed up immediately! Loose Button recently changed up their format, they used to be a monthly membership with 5-6 products on average, as of June 8th, Loose Button is now a seasonal beauty box. The new box starts with August and the Autumn themed box will have 7-8 products. The price is $26 per box. Boxes will now come seasonally, every 3 months. I am a little disappointed as I love the thrill of receiving the beauty box each and every month. Sometimes you get an added promotion like a razor or perfume, again the complainers don't like this, not high end...so don't claim high end products when they give you a razor they say....well the razor retailed for over $12 dollars alone and I am cool with that. We got a full box that month too! Loose Button also requests survey's be filled out. If you do, you are entered in a draw for gift card for Holt Renfrew or Sephora. Loose Button also has the 'First In Line Program' where you can choose one out of 3 or 4 products to have in your box. So you get to select one! Some like this, some don't. The element of surprise is taken away the complainers say...I say there are still plenty of other surprises in their, loosen up! Also, Loose Button doesn't give the same items across the board like Glymm and Glossy. If your friend got certain samples in their box, you may get something else which makes for a little more intrigue and the spoiler alerts can be watched without worry as you never know what your box will hold! It's a bit tricky at the moment to state how the new Loose Button will be, if there will still be the same concepts used. They are promoting more events and opportunities to engage with the beauty world. Loose Button isn't going anywhere and I will always be a devoted customer to my first beauty box!

Top Box: Still waiting Top Box!!  I am on your waiting list and hoping by September!!! From what I gather, there are far less complainers out there for Top Box. This company has also been out for well over a year and a half and are always on time with delivery. They respond to customer/on line media contact and have lots of contests. This box is 4 products for $10 a month. I wish I could tell you more but again I am STILL waiting!!!! No drug store crap here, lots of top notch stuff from a top notch box!

I have to say that customers are becoming more and more demanding. You get a full size product one month, and they want two the following month. This attitude will soon be changing the concept and brilliance of these companies. I don't want full size, run of the mill beauty products, I want to try new and upcoming or a small company that is totally organic or hand made. So stop complaining and forcing these companies to accept products from large, established companies just to shut you guys up! Sorry, I just had to get that out!!

As a sidebar, these are the main beauty box companies in Canada, these can be trusted and you have GlamGal's seal of approval on all of them! So whatcha waitin' for? A deal is to be found in any of these boxes and for my budget conscience wallet, a well deserved break!

Glossy Box Canada - August 2012 GlamGal Review

Okay, I know you have seen all the great blogs and posts about the Glossy Box already...I have no excuse other than a full schedule and eyes that won't stay open passed 10:30 pm on any given night!  I say better than late than never so here is my glorious Glossy Box for August!!

I have to say that this is the first month that I am really pleased with my box as a whole in a long time. Sure I like the full size samples I get and I always use everything. I adored the Zoya nail polish last month and the Wella Beach Spritz was a fabulous summer must have. This month, I am happy to say that I adore all the goodies!! Nice work Glossy!! For details on the products, please see the last picture!

Remember ladies, if you haven't signed up for Glossy Box Canada yet, go to Glossybox.ca  for $15.00 per month (taxes and delivery included) you get a great box of 5-6  sometimes 7 beauty product samples! Expect many full size products too. Use promo code GLOSSY14 to receive 10% off the box!! 


Here is the gift wrapped Glossy Box...so excited!!!!

Too many goodies to even tell what is in this box!

This was my favorite part of the box, well I luv the polish and lipstick too! What is so nice about the Be fine producys was that it was really substanstial. I get to try a clay mask, moisturizer, cleanser...the whole nine yards.
 



Yes, I know the lipstick is upside down!! and blurry! It says Glossy Pink, a nice neutral pink shade.

Sure a lot of packaging for one little bandage, a blister bandage to be exact!

This thumb is showing one coat of the polish, perfect for Fall. The product card doesn't show this nifty polish, it must be the wrong card for my box!
 
I have yet to be able to check the mystery card amount. The site isn't accepting the information. Hmmm.....

So far I have used the polish which dries quick and is full of pigment, two coats does it for me. I have tried the Be fine clay mask and it is very moisturizing, if you have oily skin I would steer clear of this one. Even though clay helps to suck out oil and other debris, I found this left a coating on my face. I use the Sebastian Potion 9 Lite each day now. I spritz a lot on my short locks, it doesn't leave any residue. It's very lite, just like they claim! The lipstick is a winner as well. Nice colour, has staying power and is now one of four colors I keep in my make-up bag.

Glossy Rocks this month!!! Thank You

Oh La La La "Love's A Beach" by China Glaze

Sometimes I really question whether this blog should be solely about nail polish and nail polish alone! I am such a sucker for any shade of nail varnish, any brand, anytime!! With summer close to it's sweet end, I refuse to accept this and just picked up "Love's a Beach" from China Glaze's Summer Neon Collection. One day before September, still dreaming of the beach, my vacation to Miami and humid breezes of coconut sunscreen.......I give my nails a perk with this lavish, hot pink! China Glaze always goes on easy, dries fast and chips rarely. I adore the brand and couldn't resist this splash of POW!!
Thanks China Glaze! You have extended my summer and perked up my pedi! (that's tonight!!)

"Pixi" Perfect Review - Lips, Cheeks and Face 2/3!

Hello ladies, boy it has been a pig's eye since I last posted (whatever that means anyway!!) and I have been meaning to give the brand Pixi a fair try for quite some time. I find the palette colours very suited to my skin tone and the price point is quite reasonable. Even after spending an hour selecting the perfect shade of lip tint, I still find 40% of the time that it just isn't what I had hoped and there's money wasted yet again!  I thought it safe to try a whole bunch of the products at once so I was giving the brand a fair shake! Pixi is a British company, their U.S. site can be explored at www.pixibeauty.com.

Here is what I tried......


The Fresh Face is a tint for your face, it comes in Peach. I applied this to my face and then applied a little foundation. I also used this product alone. I found this very delicate and no matter how much I applied to my face, I still got a light charge of color. I found this much easier to blend when I have put moisturizer on first and didn't wait for it to dry. I prefer this product with a hint of foundation blended in. I know I am a peachy kind of gal so this worked well. Pixi claims this is light weight and I couldn't agree more!

Fresh Face instantly invigorates and erases paleness and pasty skin, creating an outdoorsy fresh & rested face. Apply under makeup as an anti-fatigue skin tone-boosting primer, alone as a hydrating & nourishing day tint, or use to touch up skin on top of makeup anytime you feel your skin needs an energizing pick-me-up. The cooling and refreshing formula is weightless and packed with a multi-vitamin complex to recharge your skin. Hypoallergenic. Fragrance-free. Not tested on animals. Suitable for all skin types, especially dry, tired, aging and dull skin. (Pixi Website)

Flawless Beauty Powder, the shade I tried was #2 Neutral. I love this powder, it doesn't have a shine or sparkle which I thought I needed to highlight my brow bones and cupid's arrow, but this actually does a great job in doing just that. I use it as a highlighter and apply to areas I want to lighten. It's matte and suits my skin tone perfectly. It applies the perfect amount without looking over done with a big brush. I have a tendency to over due it with powders and blush but with this one, I and up looking flawless just like the name! This is a must try!

This powder looks like real skin, just better. It evens out skin tone and keeps skin shine-free for hours. Containing an innovative mix of translucent, coated air-light pigments, vitamin E and strong UV-protection, it enhances and helps to protect the skin. Leaves an invisible, smooth, shine-free and youthful finish. Suitable for all skin types & ages due to its unique light-diffusing pigments and re-hydrating formula. (Pixi website)
Well 3 /3 would have been ideal, but sadly this product didn't make my must have list. The Lip & Line product was disappointing. I tried shade Pale Petal. It feels like old, thick wax on my lips. The liner doesn't want to go on my lips and it's so dry after application that I must use a lip shine on top. It's like it takes away moisture from my lips. The shade looked nice on my hand yet did absolutely nothing for me but wash me out on my lips. How frustrating!! So I am sad to say that this product was not worth my money at all. I am hoping that for some reason I got an expired product and maybe you ladies have a better experience you would like to share. Pixi claims this to have maximum hydration and is preservative free. The smell isn't appetizing either, maybe that's why,  and hydration? What hydration?

This twin lip contour liner and stay-on lipstick is the ultimate “lazy” lip must-have! Never again will you have to try and match your lip liner to your favorite lipstick – these are perfectly matched to look natural with ultimate lip care and definition. The lip liner formula is waterproof with anti-feathering properties to keep your lipstick color in place. The lipstick formula is long-lasting and packed with anti-aging ingredients to provide maximum hydration. Preservative free, mineral oil free, paraben free. (Pixi website)
