I honestly think that I’ve been neglecting many of the brands that I have in my makeup collection and supplementing them for my Pixi Beauty favorites. Since Summer time is the time where I use minimal makeup, I’ve found that these gorgeous beauties have been my go to for lips and cheeks. Today I introduce to you some products that have been my absolute summer favorites and they all hail from Pixi. Let’s chit chat about them, shall we?
The Pixi Beauty GelTint and SilkGlosses have become one of my staples for summer looks this season. With gorgeous shades that offer me the perfect look for the warmer months and longevity that I need without the fuss of a liquid lipstick. If you are looking for that sunkissed and beachy vibe, I think you’ll absolutely love these as much as I do. There are three shades available in this collection and each one retails for $12.00. These beauties are dual-ended and come with a Gel lip tint (that leaves your lips with a wearable but gorgeous stain) and a gloss to top the look off. You can use either product on its own or together to complete your look.
My favorite combination of lippies has been to layer BerryTint and PinkTint to create a gorgeous pink lip and finish the look off with Sweet Gloss.

These GelTints & SilkGlosses make a great combination and feel absolutely wonderful on the lips. I love that they are lightweight but offer great color, even if my lips are dark. They give you a long-lasting lip tint that has a great stained effect and I love that my lips still hold their moisture and do not dry out. Each product is hydrating and none of them are sticky at all. If you’re someone who enjoys a minimal makeup look, I think you’ll love these.
Just a quick note, while they are long lasting, they do fade through out the day and with eating or drinking, you may need to reapply. These lippies do, however, reapply easily without little effort and without issues of weird casts or dry patches which make it wonderful to take on the go with you. Toss these in your beach bag for an all day look and you’re good to go.
The Pixi Beauty Sheer Cheek Gels are another hit in my book. Retailing for $14.00, these Sheer Cheek Gels are available in three gorgeous and universally flattering shades. I love a great blush but since Hawaii tends to be hot and often humid during the summer, my cheeks don’t get as much love as they do in the winter time. These sheer gel blushes create a gorgeous but natural looking flush of color to your cheeks to brighten and beautify your complexion in an instant. They are long lasting and perfect for those days you want a little color to your cheekies without the heavy powder or cream products that you would normally wear. They have been my absolute go-to this summer.

These gels are translucent (as you can see from the swatches) and sheer so they offer you the perfect touch of color to your cheeks leaving you with a youthful look. I apply these directly to my cheeks with my fingers and they can even be used on the lips, so it’s a perfect two-in-one. My cheeks are left fresh and bright all day and I never find the need to touch up. These products are oil free, fragrance-free and hypoallergenic and they leave my skin hydrated and moisturized too. I simply apply the product to my finger tips and tap onto the skin area or lips where I want the product to be. I blend onto the apples of my cheeks and my look is complete.
I’ve had these products in my possession now for the last couple of months. Since I’ve had them, I’ve gotten a lot of use out of them. As a busy mom, I want something that allows me to do what I need to do without fussing over my makeup. But, I also want to have products that help me look put together so I still look decent. These are definitely my summer time go-to products and I haven’t been able to get enough out of them.
When and if I remember to take photos of me using these products (I’m sorry as my mind has not been in the right state lately), I’ll be sure to update this post with images. I definitely suggest checking these beauties out. I’ve was an instant fan of them and love that they are so affordable but offer great quality. If you are someone who loves to just run out the door with a little color, I think these are definitely worth looking into.
