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.
Swatches from Left to Right – BeachTint & FreshGloss, BerryTint & SweetGloss, PinkTint and PrettyGloss
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.
Swatches from left to right – Flushed, Natural, Rosy
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.
You can purchase Pixi Beauty products at your local Target (if available) as well as Pixibeauty.com

Let’s talk a bit about how I’m loving Pixi Beauty skin care products lately. I’ll be honest, over the last few years I’ve actually been using Pixi Beauty makeup and cosmetic products, not so much their skin care – so I had no idea how much I would absolutely enjoy the products I have been using over the last few months. A few recent additions to my skin care regimen from Pixi are the Glowtion Day Dew, Glow Mist, Beauty Sleep Cream and 24K Eye Elixir and I thought, since we are in the midst of the winter… what better to talk about then some products that can give you that glow during the colder months.
The Glowtion Day Dew ($22.00) is a radiance-boosting moisturizer for a lit-from-within glow. This moisturizer is lightweight and soothes the skin while blurring imperfections & giving you the glow your skin tends to lack during the winter months. It offers an advanced illuminating skin-perfector finish and nourishes while giving a boost to dull skin. I love how hydrating this product is and since my skin is absolutely death dry, this product really helps to keep it moisturized through out the day. My skin looks healthier and much more even.
With lavender oil to help calm the skin, kaolin to help purify and mica to add a luminous and brightening glow – this product has literally been my go-to over the last few weeks. I use it in the morning and apply a really thin layer to my cleansed and toned skin. To add a little extra glow, I simply dab a little extra onto the high points of my face for a luminous finish. Since I don’t use foundation, I love to use this product on it’s own, but it works well under your foundation or BB Cream and makes a great base for your makeup.
The Glow Mist ($15.00) is a mist-on anytime type of mist that has 13 natural oils and propolis. I LOVE this thing. Again, since my skin is so dry during the winter months – this mist is the perfect travel companion. I use it to help refresh or revive my makeup or to hydrate my skin while out and about or at home. I have my eyes set on the Hydrating Milky Mist and plan to get my hands on that too (more on that in the future). Anyway, back to the Glow Mist… this product gives your skin a glowing, luminous and smooth complexion. With natural oils plus propolis, aloe vera and fruit extracts to help hydrate, protect and nourish your skin. It’s a multi-use mist and you can use it for setting your makeup or to add a dewy finish to your skin. Looking to protect your skin, refresh your makeup or add some extra glow? Well, this is the mist for you. I especially love that it is suited for all skin types.
I literally spray this mist in the morning and night when needed. It’s easy to use, just shake to mix it up, close your eyes and mist over your face & neck. It is a light weight mist, smells refreshing and earthy and it’s not sticky at all. With the additives of Tea tree Oil, Jojoba Oil, Macadamia Oil and so much more I get all the benefits of some of my favorite oils and hydrated skin when I need it.
Beauty Sleep Cream ($24.00) is a great nutrient-rich nighttime essential to help protect and nourish your skin. This is a great addition to any winter time routine, especially for those with dry skin – because it is not only nourishing but comforts and soothes your skin, prepping it for the next day. Fast absorbing and rich in nutrients, this product is a great night-time essential to help hydrate your skin while you sleep. Made with 100% natural mango butter, oils of lavender, lemon and bergamot and other great ingredients – this product is the perfect night time moisturizer.
I apply a thin layer to my clean and toned skin at night prior to bed and let it do it’s trick. When I wake up in the morning, my skin is soft and supple and hydrated to start the day.
Lastly out of the bunch is the Pixi 24K Eye Elixir ($22.00) has been a favorite for me the last month. I use eye creams, gels and roller balls in various sorts under and around my eye area to keep it hydrated and help with any fine lines I have from allergies and I have found this product is a great one for all of that. This elixir is an anti-fatigue peptide serum that massages away puffiness as it smooths and refreshes the eye area. A multi-tasker of sorts that is infused with powerful age-defying ingredients to help refresh eyes and prevent the signs of fatigue. With Collagen to help repair the delicate eye area, peptides to help plump fine lines and raspberry to tone the skin – you get a great all in one that’s perfect for everyday use.
I love putting this elixir in the fridge for a while to cool the product and the rollerball applicator to help awaken my senses and my eyes each morning. The applicator is cool and soothes the eye while encouraging circulation. You can use this in the morning or at night and it’s as easy as rolling the applicator under the eye from inner to outer corner approximately 2-3 times. Since I don’t have any heavy wrinkles, I do notice a big difference in how hydrated and awake my under eyes look as well as the de-puffing in that area (though I do not have really bad puffy eyes). This product is perfect for me to use on days when I woke up after a restless night or if my allergies are bothering me.
I think, like with all skin care – it really is about the person’s individual tastes, skin type and what they want to do for their skin. Pixi products are reasonably priced – a little higher in price point then your standard drugstore finds, but I have been loving their products thus far. I’m very impressed with this particular products because winter is when my skin is most delicate, sensitive and finicky and when I can try a set of products without any issue – I consider that a win in my book. Each of these products offer your skin some glow while keeping it hydrated and luminous and let’s face it – your skin is most dull in the winter months so anything that will give you luminosity, is a huge plus. If I had to choose just one product out of the four that I can’t simply live without, I think the Glowtion Day Dew would probably be it and of course, the 24K Eye Elixir is a must-have in my book. All of the products are wonderful regardless and if you’re near a Target or love to shop online, I highly suggest checking them out.

I am sad to say that I’ve had these products in my possession now for several months and while I have used them many times, I have forgotten to share them with all of you. I am still relatively new to Pixi Beauty products (Pixi by Petra) as I have only used a small handful of them. I’m quite excited that my island now has a Target so that I may purchase more of the products available from the brand, and get to know about the goods a little more. These Crayon Combo pencils are a part of the select products I have tried and today I want to share them with you.
The Crayon Combos from Pixi Beauty come in four different combinations. They retail for $18.00 a piece and you can purchase them at your local Target (where available) or online at Pixibeauty.com. The Crayon Combos are eye pen duos that are designed to either brighten and lighten the area around the eyes or line and define your eyes for show stopping peepers. Each pencil is multi-use, double-ended and ready to go right out of the box to create a gorgeous look in a matter of moments. They are formulated to awaken, enhance or smoke up your eyes, are long wearing and offer gorgeous color payoff. They have been created to be super-smooth with a high-performance formula that is waterproof and can be used on the inner rim. Each shade is also said to be easily blend-able for a soft-focus effect.
The duo pencils include beneficial ingredients like Caffeine which gives an energizing effect, Chamomile which soothes and Pearl powder which brightens the eyes. They are hypoallergenic and preservative and mineral oil free.
The first Crayon Combo we are going to talk about is the Softly Smoky. This double-ended combo has an eye-define pen that is used to contour the eyes. It enhances with high performance treatment and soft focus colour. You use this particualr one by applying to the lash line and smooth or smoke the liner out by softening it or wear it as is. You can also use it to define the lash line and work the pencil up to your crease as well as aply under the eye on the lower lash line for a soft smoky look. The line side is a deep dark brown that I love to use in place of a black liner and the define side is a gorgeous metallic mocha brown which works wonderfully on those days that you want a smoky look or when you want a little definition to the eyes but still have something wearable.
Next is the Super Natural Crayon Combo. This is one of my favorites out of the three that I own. Just like the Softly Smoky combo, this particular duo ended pencil is used to line and create a smoky but natural look. You can use this by taking the define side to contour and enhance the eyes and using the line side to line the upper and lower lash line to create a wearable look or a smoky glam one. The define side on this pencil is a gorgeous metallic bronze which I love to wear all over my eye lid for an every day look while taking the line side and smudging it on my lower and upper lash line or in my waterline to define and enhance my lashes.
Last is the Wide Awake Crayon Combo. This double-ended pencil is a rescue pen that awakens the eyes with high performance and treatment and soft focus cover. Apply the Brighten end under the eye and on the lower waterline and use the lighten end on the brow bones, inner corner of the eye, eye lids and cupid’s bow to highlight for a wake look. The Brighten side is one of my absolute favorites to apply to the waterline because it lasts most of the day – even with my watery eyes and looks so natural, it’s perfect for a soft makeup look that makes me look refreshed. The Lighten side which makes a great inner corner highlight has a metallic sheen to it and offers a soft shimmer for a great look.
I’m impressed with each pencil and I’ll be honest, I really like the metallic side of each one. But, overall I think they are nice. They are perfect for those days that I really want a soft and easy look without pulling out eye shadows and great on the go or for travel. The metallic side of each pencil applies easily and the matte sides work well for liner which I enjoy. The matte sides of each pencil are a little more stiff (not as creamy as the metallic) but they work nonetheless. These pencils are claimed to be waterproof and while used on the lid and lash line it can last all day though on the waterline it will fade after a few hours. I’m still quite impressed with how long they do last though – but from my personal use, I wouldn’t consider them waterproof but long lasting.
They are quite costly – almost $20 is a hefty price point to pay for something like this, but you should get a lot of use out of the products and they are pretty good quality. I’m not sure that I would repurchase these, but- my mind may change once I actually run out of them since I’ve become quite fond of a few of them. Overall – I like them, but I think for a product like this – I would like to see them cheaper in cost.
Have you tried these duo crayon combos from Pixi Beauty? If you have, what are your thoughts on them? If not, have you tried anything from Pixi before and what should I look at trying out next?
