Pixi Mattelustre Lipstick Review:

I got some more Pixi goodness for you glamour babes! Have you tried any of the Mattelustre Lipsticks? You haven’t? Then you must. I received a few from Pixi as samples for testing purposes, and they’re really nice.

.

Pixi’s Mattelustre Lipstick ($12.00 0.17 oz.) comes available in twelve shades ranging in coral, pinks, nudes, and reds. The selection of colors will compliment every skin tone beautifully. They’re pretty vibrant.

I was sent three lovely shades-Bitten Rose, Rose Naturalle, and Peach Blossom.

Bitten Rose is a dusty rose.

Rose Naturalle is a pinkish nude.

Peach Blossom is a corally peach.

The formula has added peptides, hyaluronic acid, and vitamins C and E help to create fuller, smoother looking lips. It is a full coverage lipstick that applies glossy then sets into a demi matte finish, but looks more satin-matte if you ask me. It is lightweight, smooth, slick, comfortable to wear, easy to apply, buildable, pigmented, hydrating, and long lasting.

I didn’t think I was going to like the shades that were sent to me, but surprisingly I do. They are fall weather colors. Something I am embracing more nowadays instead of sticking to my old outmoded ways of thinking. It doesn’t always have to be a red lip. Look Ma, I’m branching out. I needed some time, that’s all. Lol. I highly recommend these three if neutral tones are more your thing. They have just enough vibrancy for your lips to stand out.

Wear time is about 7 hours as it fades into a soft stain. It doesn’t feather or bleed, or transfer when drinking hot or cold beverages. Oily foods will remove the color, but we all know this fun fact don’t we? Lol.

My only issue I had with the Pixi Mattelustre Lipsticks was the taste. It’s on the bitter side. I was hoping it was going to have their signature vanilla mint flavor. Could you bring that back please, Pixi? The bitterness is a little tough to swallow.

Other than that, I love everything about this lipstick.

Be sure to have Santa swing by Pixi Beauty and Target on the way to your houses. The elves will be happy to put a couple of Pixi Mattelustre Lipsticks in your stocking. Unless you are naughty. Then candy coal comes in handy. Lol!

Stay beautiful! Xo.

Pixi MultiBalm (Baby Petal) Review:

I’ve gotten quite the spread of PR samples from Pixi Beauty, and absolutely loved all that I have tried from the brand. However, Pixi’s MultiBalm Stick ($12 for 0.23oz) didn’t exactly work for me. I have no complaints about the product in general- it’s great. I’m thinking the shade (Baby Petal) I received was far too light for my skin tone.

Hear me out.

Product Details:

• The crème-to-powder texture is great for cheeks and leaves a natural finish on lips

• Awakens skin by adding a touch of color to the face.

• Infused with aloe vera, shea butter, and rose hip oil to protect

• Try one shade on cheeks & lips to look pulled-together instantly!

• Travel friendly

•Not tested on animals

Baby Petal is a very, very neutral pinkish nude.

Although the swatch depicts a good amount of pigmentation, that wasn’t the case upon application. When applying Pixi’s MultiBalm Stick to my cheeks and lips, barely any color showed through. The proof is in the pic. Lol.

In my opinion, I think this shade would benefit porcelain skin tones rather than light (me) to deeper complexions.

I beg to differ with the creme to powder texture. It is indeed creamy, but does not set powdery. It’s more of a creamy/balmy texture, which I like.

The formulation of the product is lightweight, easy to apply, easy to blend, not buildable from what I can tell with this shade, comfortable to wear, has a good amount of hydration, and is perfect for all skin types, especially dry skin. I am not so sure about the color payoff, but by the dewiness I felt lingering on my skin, it was about 6 hours. My lips stayed for about two hours, and that was due to eating and drinking.

Give this product a chance if you are a fan of Pixi. There are more pros than cons to Pixi’s MultiBalm stick. You just have to find the shade that works best for you. Nudes were never my thing, or shade of choice. Lol. I’m going to see what the other colors have to offer. By what I am gathering on the Pixi Beauty site, Soft Strawberry is looking like a strong contender. Target here I come!

Stay beautiful! Xo.

Pixi Quick Finish (Translucid) Powder Review:

Pixi’s Quick Fix Powder ($20 for 0.11oz) is the perfect finishing touch for oily complexions glamour babes. My skin is ridiculously oily and I was impressed by how well it worked.

Formulated with skin soothing properties such as Cucumber, Aloe Vera, Grape Seed, and White Tea Leaf Extract. The Silica based translucent finishing powder creates a beautiful velvet matte finish on top of makeup or bare skin that gives off an air brushed look.

I personally love using it both ways-bare faced and to set my makeup. It leaves my skin feeling soft, fresh, and flawless looking all day.
The Quick Fix Powder comes housed in a small cylinder plastic container that has a soft sponge puff attached for mess free blending, and a mirror above the cap for easy touch-ups. A great travel buddy for those on the go!

Be mindful to remove the seal. I was shaking the darn thing like a crazy woman thinking it was broken, not realizing there maybe something preventing the powder to come out. Smh. Duh! Lol.

The powder itself is super lightweight, finely milled, silky smooth, invisible, comfortable to wear, easy to apply, does not cake up or clog pores, blendable, buildable, and sets in a matte finish without looking overly matte (dry).


Pixi’s Quick Fix Powder suits all skin tones. There is zero color. It does not leave a ghostly, Casperish white residue on the skin whatsoever. As you tap and blend the finishing powder on your skin, it just melts right in. Blurring imperfections and minimizing shine. Did I say I love this already? I don’t care, I LOVE IT! Great Icona Pop song by the way. Now I can’t get it out of my head. Lol.

FUN TIP: Try using some of Pixi’s Makeup Fixing Mist ($15) after using the Quick Fix Powder to prolong the wear. The two make an exceptional pair when combined together.

Pixi’s Quick Fix Powder is available at Target and PixiBeauty.com.

Do you think you’ll get one?

Pixi Sheer Cheek Gel Review:

Okay, so this time I have been using Pixi’s Sheer Cheek Gel ($14 for 0.45oz) the correct way glamour babes. On my cheeks! The name of the product says it all. But, you can use it on the lips too if you really wanna. It says you could on the box. See, I did my homework. Lol.

These are actually pretty nice. I’m not really one for cheek gels. They’re usually messy, feel kinda thick, or I can never get them to blend out right, creating a streaky, blotchy look.

Pixi’s however, creates a lovely sheer, dewy flush of color on the cheeks that’s perfect for this summer weather. A girl such as myself can get use to using these. They take no time to apply and look beautiful on.

The Sheer Cheek Gel comes in three shades.

NaturalRosyFlushedThe water/aloe based formula has a gel like consistency making it lightweight, hydrating, comfortable to wear, pigmented, easy to apply, and easy to blend. Suitable for all skin types, especially dry skin.

To apply: I use the flat end of my beauty blender sponge, along with a squeeze of Pixi’s Sheer Cheek Gel, and gently pat the color onto my cheek bones as it evenly melts into my skin. I tried my fingertips, but the application wasn’t as smooth and it stained my fingers a bit.

You can layer a powdered highlighter, blush or bronzer on top of the Cheek Gels for an extra burst of color or to extend the wear. The wear extension of these when worn alone was not a problem. I’ll take 7 hours of healthy rosy looking pinched cheeks any day. This pale complexion needs some of dat!

Pixi’s Sheer Cheek Gel is available at PixiBeauty and Target.com

Are you thinking of getting any?

Which ones?

Stay beautiful! Xo.
