Liquid Lipsticks the Pixi Beauty Way*

Late last year, out of the blue, I was added to Pixi’s PR list. It was one of those opportunities that really made me think my blogging was getting better, to a level that I am happy with. Sadly, I’m a little behind on posts at the moment, I’ve had quite a long blogging break recently but today I thought I would finally share the new (ish) Pixi Liquid Lipsticks – because I’m a real fan of the formula.

Pixi Liquid Lipsticks really Rose and Pastel Petal

I was lucky enough to receive all five of the shades, however, I only have one pair of lips, and not all shades suit a pale complexion such as mine. (I’ve found the other three shades loving homes, where they’ll be used more, with friends.) Personally, I really like the packaging of these: it’s simple but obviously Pixi due to the rose gold accents and pastel green lid. The applicator is also quite different to most, instead of a bog standard doe foot applicator it has a teardrop shaped one. This makes getting even lines and a precise cupids bow such a breeze, something I struggle to do with other liquid lipstick applicators.

The two shades that I took a liking to were the shades Pastel Petal and Really Rose. Pastel Petal is a brown nude with pink undertones while Really Rose is more pinky nude. I would say ‘my lips but better’ but to be honest, this is more of a rosy red than my true lip colour. The other shades included two more orangey nudes and a deeper rose/red shade. My favourite of the two is probably Really Rose, as it is bright enough to be noticed but also not a statement lip.

The formula is comfortable, even for someone who suffers from year round dry lips. It has quite a runny consistency, but does seem to dry down to a completely matte finish which means it’s almost kiss proof – there was minimal transfer after a lot of blotting and quite a while of waiting. Luckily it’s hardly drying, but you’ll still need a good lip scrub before hand otherwise you will find it clings to any dry patches you may have.

The Pixi Mattelast Liquid Lipsticks retail for £16 which I don’t think is too bad. I love Pixi’s infamous Glow Tonic, and so am really happy to see their foray into liquid lipsticks. I’m pretty sure I have a few more of their makeup bits waiting for me back at uni, so I can’t wait to try those and report back. See you Monday for the start of Dubai in five days.
