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.
• 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.
