Wearing Pixi Tinted Brilliance Balm in No. 2 Magnific Mauve
There’s a pixi in my lip tint!
Did you ever try the Tarte Lip Surgence Lip Tints? I fell in love with those things and their shimmery, non-sticky, lip-tinty goodness…
If you did, too, check out Pixi’s new Tinted Brilliance Balms ($16 each). Smooth, and a little shiny, just like Tarte’s tints, they last about an hour on my lips.
That’s not long, granted, but I think it’s fine for what they are.
Here’s a quick look at four of the seven available shades. Have a look, and let me know what you think.
From the left: No. 2 Magnific Mauve, No. 5 Radiant Rose, No.7 Rosy Red and No. 8 Bitten Berry
Swatches from the left: No. 2 Magnific Mauve, No. 5 Radiant Rose, No.7 Rosy Red and No. 8 Bitten Berry
No.7 Rosy Red
No. 8 Bitten Berry
No. 5 Radiant Rose
LOVE how smooth and slick these feel, and I dig the rich colors and subtle shine, but they aren’t quite as moisturizing as I’d like.
That, and they taste and smell a little waxy to me (like mint-flavored dental floss)…
Of course, I’m fond of mint-flavored dental floss, so there’s that.
PRICE: $16 each
AVAILABILITY: Available now at Target stores and also online
