Whether you’re up to multi-tasking products or simply looking for new eye candies to try this month, these prismatic multi-use lip and cheek balms from Pixi Beauty fit the bill!
Retailing for $12 each, these multibalms come in five alluring and totally wearable shades: Sheer Sculpt (can be used to contour, light brown with cool undertone), Watermelon Veil (pink), Soft Strawberry (soft red), Baby Petal (pinkish mauve), and Wild Rose (pinkish nude).
They are unscented with creamy matte texture. On cheeks, they feel slightly sticky but blendable either with fingertips or blush brush. Personally, I prefer the former method because it retains the color and adheres on top of the skin better. Wear time is relative; for oily to combination skin, it does fade after five hours, unset with powder, over foundation (take note, we are in the thick of summer so this may change during the winter). On lips, they feel slightly matte, comfortable to wear, and appear more pigmented. I don’t know about you but if you’re iffy with bacteria transfer, I suggest to assign one color per area. Say, Wild Rose or Baby Petal on cheeks and Watermelon Veil or Soft Strawberry on lips. Of course you can always sanitize in between use; after all, they are called multi-use balm, right? Here they are swatched…
