YAAAAASSSS! I’m writing this review as a person who has literally said that I want to wear foundation so thick that I want to look plastic. Yes. You read that correctly. Yikes. I began to realize that the thick ass foundation was actually accentuating all of my skin flaws; rather than covering them. I began easing into a lighter coverage, and nothing was really floating my boat. The tinted moisturizers were either making my t-zone like an oil slick, doing nothing at all, or they had this weird grey consistency. I have dry acne prone skin, and at 31, I’m probably also dancing with a couple of fine lines here and there. My skin type makes it extremely difficult to find good makeup for my face.
That is, until, I discovered this witchcraft. It’s gel consistency is different from anything I’ve ever used, and is extremely easy to build upon. It gives my skin a nice dewy glow; without putting all my flaws on surround sound.
I’m thoroughly pleased with this tinted moisturizer, and for the first time in YEARS I think I finally found a foundation-like product that I would actually care if I ran out of.

I’m surprised that this got such disappointing reviews. I was looking for something in the line of glossier’s invisible shield as their reviews are so inconsistent, I couldn’t bare to spend money on a product I am unable to “play” with. I stumbled upon this, and already loving a lot of the pixi products; I decided to buy it.
I’m wondering if the ladies on here were maybe over applying the product, or spraying too close to their face?
I do a very light mist all over before my main moisturizer and it leaves me with a nice silky feeling, and a nice glow. None of that thick, greasy, gross film that you get with regular sun screen or a moisturizer with spf.
I would absolutely repurchase this bad boy.

I bought this as a cheaper alternative to Dior's Lip Maximizer, but it turns out its not any cheaper at all. The price reflects the amount of product in the tube. Formula wise, I don't use it for it's lip plumping benefits, but for its moisturizing benefits. My lips get notoriously dry, and I've always loved the Dior version to keep my lips hydrated and comfortable. I'm used to the "burn"ing sensation of these lip plumpers so it doesn't bother me - I barely even notice it anymore. It does a good job of keeping my lips hydrated, but in comparison to the Dior one, I find the finish lacking. This one looks simply like a clear gloss, but the Dior gives a bit of a milky pinky colour which I love. Its also not overly sticky, but it still has enough stick that the product doesn't disappear soon after application. Overall, its a decent product, but I prefer the finish and design of the Dior one better, and they're the same price, so I will not repurchase.

This is a hydrating balm with a definite rose scent that claims to boost radiance. I don‘t know about that last part, I mean my skin doesn’t appear dull to begin with but it also doesn’t look any more radiant when I use this. Layered over the Pixi Rose Caviar Essence this really locks in moisture though and keeps my skin feeling hydrated and plump. That’s a winning combination in my books. The only thing I noticed when I first started to use this balm is that I couldn’t really rub this into my skin as it seemed to pill on me. Then I tried using less product, gently spreading on my skin and pressing it in which seems to work perfectly. Glad to see that less is more given the price of this product is on the high side for drugstore. I have dry skin and this has a somewhat matte finish to it so those with oily skin should not be afraid of this product. Do not be concerned that the matte finish means it isn’t moisturizing, it really does provide a good barrier layer to keep hydration in. I haven’t used it as a mask, only as an overnight moisturizer and it has performed well for me in this regard.

This serum minimizes pores, brightens and smooths my skin. It's easy to apply but it does leave a bit sticky feeling on the skin. I feel like I can definitely see results the next morning after using this, my skin seems a lot more radiant. I think the price is okay considering you do get results with this pretty fast.
