If you girls follow me on Instagram, You girls’d probably know my love for Pixi Beauty products. In today’s post too I am introducing to you girls some of my summer favorites.
Summers are all about minimal makeup products. I don’t like to pile up a lot of products, be it makeup or skincare. I would rather be in the look out for multi-use products. This wonderful box from Pixi Beauty arrived at the right time. I got sent some of the lip and cheek products to try out.
Pixi By Petra Sheer Cheek Gel gives a gorgeous, healthy & glowing cheeks for that perfect natural looking complexion. It’s available in 3 shades – Rosy, Natural & Flushed.
Net Weight: 12.75 g / 0.45 oz. ; Comes in a easy to squeeze tube packaging. It’s very cute looking and easy to carry around. The outer box it comes in has all details such as ingredients.
Though the shades look colorful in the swatches. These once blended goes translucent.

This sheer, translucent gel creates a super natural flush of colour . For applying I use my fingers. It blends in really well without accentuating pores. It delivers that perfect amount of flush to your cheeks. You can use it on lips as well. I am not much of a gloss person. So, I like to use it on cheeks.
These are Oil free, fragrance free and hypoallergenic. It’s enriched with skin calming and soothing aloe vera. It’s quite hydrating as well. One common question that arises when thinking of a liquid blush is – Will it be sticky. Well, this is not. It has the perfect balance of skin conditioning and it doesn’t feel sticky at all.
If you are planning to use this blush, my best advice to you is – use a dewy foundation. Powder and matte foundations just doesn’t go well with it. Else, skip the foundation. Just conceal the spots or dark circles. set the concealer and leave the rest of your face as it is and apply this to the apple of your cheeks to get that sheer pinch of color.
If you are not much of a fan of dewy finish makeup base and you want to use a normal liquid foundation, dust your setting powder ; make sure you use a translucent powder after dabbing this blush on your cheeks. This gives more natural looking finish. If you prefer not to use hands, use a damp beauty blender to blend it out. Be quick with your blending because it tends to dry faster. Overall, it’s a cool product for summers. To use this in the right way- I suggest you apply this product in a sweeping movement rather than rubbing it onto your skin.
As you can see from the swatches, Even though it looks dark in the tube, Shade ‘Flushed’ is such a pretty shade. As its name – It offers a very sheer, natural glow to your skin. Staying power is great too. I worn it for almost 7 hours and it didn’t make my skin feel oily or enhanced my pores. For reference – I have combination-sensitive skin.
Overall, Pixi Sheer Cheek Gel is very easy to apply with a convenient packaging. Available in shades that suit every skintones. You only need a tiny amount and it gives that perfect natural looking glow to the skin. Ideal for cheeks and lips for a fresh look without the need of touch-ups. Paraben Free & not tested on animals.

I am so in love with the double end packaging. it’s very cool to have a tint and a matching gloss. I noticed a slight minty fragrance to it. It feels moisturising on lips. They’re not drying at all. It left a beautiful stain on my lips.
These formula can be worn alone or can be layered as you desire. The applicator flat sponge. Easy to apply gloss. for tint, I feel the application is kind of messy when you want to apply the color to edges of your lips. If you got what I meant, using the applicator, its easy to blend color to lower lips. But to define and fill upper lips. It’s little messy and hard to apply.
Here are the swatches. My favorite is Beach Tint and Fresh Gloss. Beach Tint is a darker orange brown tint and it’s glossy end features a coral gloss. it’s stunning in combination and I love it.
Berry Tint looks very natural on lips. It’s perfect for day wear. The formula is very comfortable on lips. Long lasting. Leave a beautiful tint that is perfect for spring. Not much a fan of Sweet Gloss.
Pink Tint has the right pop of pink color. It’s perfect for a summer day out. Pretty Gloss is very pretty on lips too.
Overall, these are cool. Double sided product infused with Aloe Vera, Jojoba and Shea Butter. glides on effortlessly. It gives a long lasting stained effect on lips. Feels very comfortable and moisturised on lips. Love to use it for short shopping trips, grocery shopping, a casual day. I wear Berry Tint while going to gym. If you have pigmented lips – You might not like the gloss alone. Tint topped with gloss or tint alone is perfect too. Paraben Free & not tested on animals.
