Anybody else get overwhelmed by the variety of choices in magnificence on the market proper now? I’m a giant magnificence lover however with new releases from so many manufacturers at any given time, my head begins to spin! I actually find it irresistible once I discover a model to get actually nestled into and use an enormous vary of their merchandise, and a type of manufacturers is Pixi Magnificence.
I’ll must restrict my raving about Pixi’s skincare as a result of that’s a weblog submit by itself, however that stuff is GOLD in my ebook. Their eyeshadows apply like a dream, whether or not they be liquid or powder, and their liquid lipsticks really feel like velvet on the lips. However at present buddies, we’re going to go over a few of Pixi Magnificence’s complexion merchandise that I’ve been testing and evaluating over the previous couple weeks.
The Pixi Magnificence H2O SkinTint has been a HUGE favourite over the previous yr for me really. I found it final spring and have been telling folks about it ever since. Its distinctive water-based gel method feels gentle and hydrating on the pores and skin and provides me a pure, hydrated look.
I exploit Pixi H2O SkinTint nearly every day. The protection on that is lightest out of all three I’m sharing at present, however buildable with out cake-iness points. It has such a special really feel to it in comparison with another kind of basis or tint product I’ve used. In order for you one thing that evens out pores and skin tone and blemishes whereas feeling like no make-up in any respect — this one is for you!
- Accessible in six shades

The Pixi Magnificence Illuminating Tint & Conceal has discovered a spot in my common rotation currently and I want I knew about it earlier! The tinted moisturizer features a stick concealer on the cap which makes it tremendous simple to good my make-up. This undoubtedly has extra of a creamy, thicker really feel to it than the H2O SkinTint. I discover that it covers a bit greater than the H2O SkinTint on first swipe which stunned me because it’s solely a tinted moisturizer. The cream does have illuminating properties to it that make my pores and skin look healthily moisturized (if the phrase “glowy” scares you). I believe it may well greatest be described as barely opalescent for that “lit from inside” factor occurring.
Not solely does the illuminating tint have barely extra protection than H2O SkinTint, however will also be constructed up in areas that want a bit of extra. The cream to powder concealer stick on the cap is ideal for my below eye space, middle of brow, sides of nostril and any blemishes I’ve. I exploit it identical to a crayon below the eyes and mix it out simply with my fingers. I hope they prolong the colour vary right here since there are solely three shades for this product however it’s a terrific choice with an excellent pure really feel to it. I really like the illuminated look of this one and have been pairing it with my favourite bronzers and glowy eye shadows.
- Supplies SPF 20
- Features a full protection cream-to-powder concealer
- A creamier choice that may supply a bit extra protection
The Pixi Magnificence Magnificence Balm is the most recent complexion product added to the Pixi Magnificence household. This hydrating full protection balm is the true deal. I’d think about this a CC cream because it does appropriate colour and masks imperfections probably the most out of all of the choices above. If you happen to desire a matte end I don’t assume this will probably be for you. The hydrating end of their Magnificence Balm will proceed to present that hydrated, glowy look which I personally desire over matte. Pixi’s Magnificence Balm additionally touts the advantages of hyaluronic acid, ceramides and adenosine for added smoothing, plumping and hydrating of the pores and skin.
I discover the protection of this product an excessive amount of for my private style. I’m okay with some unevenness of my pores and skin and I believe it fits my pores and skin higher to consider complexion merchandise as extra of a veil, than as an overcoat. I additionally want to combine two colours to get the correct shade for me. Not a giant deal, as a result of that occurs with plenty of complexion merchandise however simply placing it on the market. That mentioned, in case you desire fuller protection, clean-slate make-up, this can be a good one with a pleasant end and really feel to it. I’ll be holding onto this for days once I may take photos and need a clear canvas to begin with.
- Medium to full protection basis
- Accessible in six shades
- Has added pores and skin enhancing skincare advantages
- Has deeper pores and skin tone shades accessible in comparison with the earlier merchandise above.
I assumed it could be good to see that the textures of the merchandise do look just like the bare eye. Once I swatch them they appear orange on my arm however mix splendidly on my light-medium impartial pores and skin tone. PROMISE!! Don’t let that colour alarm you –what I would like you to see is how a lot colour payout there really is with even the lightest protection product rubbed into the pores and skin. I keep in mind once I first pumped out H20 Skintint initially of this yr and was frightened I received the incorrect colour — I’m glad I didn’t return it!
Is there one winner for me? I’d say the H20 Skintint is and at all times will probably be a favourite for summer time once I sweat lots and simply really feel like I don’t need something on my face in any respect. The Illuminating Pores and skin Tint will probably be my drier fall/winter alternative due to its illuminating capabilities. My pores and skin appears to be like extra uninteresting in chilly, drier months so the added opalescent actually helps my pores and skin look full of life once more. The Magnificence Balm has extra protection than I desire for every day use. It is going to turn out to be useful on days the place I must take pictures however for probably the most half I prefer to let my pores and skin present by means of make-up.
Have you ever tried any of those? Do you could have a favourite…what do you consider them?
