Pixi Beauty Lipstick + Lip Balm Swatches

Thursday, November 30, 2017

Goood evening! A few weeks ago, I received a package of gorgeous lippies from Pixi Beauty so I wanted to share with you guys what these colours were! They are so perfect for F/W 2018 and most importantly - they're moisturizing too!! Much needed especially for the cold weather when our lips need the most hydration. 

Shea Butter Lip Balm $8 (bottom row 3)
- shea butter and vitamin E infused to nourish dry lips
- tinted lip balm 
Left to right: Natural Rose, Ripe Raspberry, Sweet Peach
Left to right: Natural Rose, Sweet Peach, Ripe Raspberry
Thoughts
Not as moisturizing as I would like. For some reason Ripe Raspberry is more hydrating than the sweet peach one. Packaging also feels kind of cheap (especially the turning function on the lipstick when you turn the base left and right to move the lipstick up and down) Was really excited about "natural rose" but it doesn't look like the packaging colour at all once applied to lips :( the colour looks like my own natural lip colour so basically nothing shows up lol the only colour I like here on my lips is Ripe Raspberry 
Mattelustre Lipstick $12  (top row 3)
- full coverage, demi-matte 
- added peptides, hyalronic acid and vitamins C + E help create smoother looking lips
Left to Right: Peach Blossom, Rose Naturelle, Bitten Rose

Thoughts
I was hoping to love "Rose Naturelle" because the swatch is SO pretty! Unfortunately I guess its a little too natural looking on me and doesn't show up much on my lips either like the first one "Natural Rose". However, "Bitten Rose" is a pretty fuschia/red combo that I like. Natural enough to wear daily but pigmented enough to stand out. These ones are also much more moisturizing and comfortable to apply to the lips than the lip balms. But I also have to mention, there's a weird plastic smell to them. I dont know where its coming from! 

Overall I would not purchase. I have a few Pixi items I am a fan of but unfortunately I can't say that these ones are in there :( 

Thanks for reading guys! see you in the next one xoxo
