If you are a long time subscriber of this blog, you may have an idea that Pixi is my favorite “drugstore” brand. Quote unquote because their products aren’t categorically cheap but in the grand scheme of things, we can all agree that for $10 upward, it’s in the mid-price range. Secondly, Target isn’t technically a drugstore (although its pharmacy section was bought by CVS/Long’s). But to simplify matters, let’s stick to calling it a drugstore brand, ok? Let’s start with my top fave, the Rose Oil Blend ($24, 30ml/1.01 fl oz).
A facial oil, you can use this as a standalone moisturizer in the evening or morning or as part of your skincare cocktail. Made with botanical extracts, rose for one, this oil is heaven in a bottle. I have fondness for anything rose-scented and I was paper-thin close to buying a similar facial oil from Chantecaille (which costs a fortune) so call it perfect timing when this beauty arrived! My preferred way of using this is to mix two drops to any matte foundation (Estee Lauder Double Wear is my holy grail) and apply with damp beauty blender. It renders a semi-matte coverage and impeccable hydration without affecting the foundation’s overall wear time.
Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Tocopherol, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil, Punica Granatum Seed Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil.
A lip treatment, Liplift Max ($14, 2.7g/ 0.09 oz) is a must-have this time of the year when lips need extra hydration. There are three shades which I believe are all sheer, I have Petal Ice which is colorless. It has a minty scent and feel to it and claims to plump lips. Let me get this straight, anything glossy will create an appearance of fuller lips especially if you apply it at the center of your lips. This however doesn’t sting like Buxom or Venom (remember this brand? it stings big time!!). The consistency is somewhat similar to YSL Volupte Oil which is another favorite.
Dilinoleic Acid/Propanediol Copolymer, Triisostearoyl Polyglyceryl-3 Dimer Dilinoleate, Diisostearyl Dimer Dilinoleate, Octyldodecanol, Dipalmitoyl Hydroxyproline, Cetearyl Ethylhexanoate, Fragrance, Menthol, Caprylyl Glycol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Benzotriazolyl Dodecyl P-Cresol, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Sorbitan Isostearate, Linoleic Acid, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Tetrabutyl Ethylidenebisphenol, Mica (CI 77019), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Linolenic Acid, Portulaca Pilosa Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Sucrose Cocoate, Carmine (CI 75470), Tocopherol, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-38.
It’s amazing to think that there are so many ways to remove makeup, from wipes to micellar to oil and now, a balm?! Yes, the Nourishing Cleansing Balm ($20, 90ml/ 3.04 fl oz) does what it claims! Looking like a giant lip balm, the pot is replete with all the goodness your face or lips need to remove all the remaining traces of makeup and gunk. It’s simple to use: massage on face, remove with water or damp face cloth. I’m a convert.
Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Cetearyl Isononanoate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glyceryl Behenate, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Glyceryl Stearate, Glyceryl Cocoate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Lecithin, Tocopherol, Cetyl Alcohol, Benzyl Alcohol, Fragrance.
