Summer Lifesavers from PIXI BEAUTY




Hi there, my darlings! So, it's September...but the heat just doesn't quit! Especially in this part of the world! You haven't experienced heat until you have lived through the mind-numbing Summer heat of a tropical country! I survived it...but just barely! As a beauty blogger obsessed with makeup, I all but gave up wearing any, sticking with the barest essentials. Unless a special occasion came up and this year saw plenty, as I spent time with my family after many, many years away. On those occasions, I made sure to doll up but the ever-present heat posed a challenge. What did I do, what did I reach for to make things easier for myself? Today, I'll share with you 4 products from Pixi Beauty that were nothing short of lifesavers this summer!


NOURISHING LIP POLISH ($12.00)

A multitasking lip exfoliator that treats, renews and perfects lips for a super-smooth finish.

• This 2-in-1 lip exfoliator + nourisher helps to repair & protect dry, sensitive lips
• Luxe, nutrient-rich formula smoothes lips with shea butter & a blend of sweet almond, apricot, and evening primrose oils
• The unique massage applicator stimulates circulation, giving a healthy, plumped effect
• Not tested on animals
• Paraben free



I'm all about exfoliation and matte lippies during the Summers so I really don't know how I survived without a good lip scrub in my life. So, I'm incredibly happy to have found this one this year! Not only does it leave my lips feeling softer and smoother but my lipsticks, particularly the mattes, go on easier and stay on longer after I have freshly exfoliated. Definitely a welcome addition to my skincare and makeup prep routine!




MULTIBALM in Baby Petal ($12.00)

2-in-1 cheek and lip colour stick. This multiuse, crème-powder formula awakens by adding a touch of colour to the face.

• The crème-to-powder texture is great for cheeks and leaves a natural finish on lips
• Infused with aloe vera, shea butter, and rose hip oil to protect
• Try one shade on cheeks & lips to look pulled-together instantly!
• Not tested on animals
• Parabon Free



Available in 5 shades, I tested the shade, Baby Petal, which much like its name, is a soft, light baby pink. Perfect to add the barest flush of color to your cheeks and lips before running out the door. Although a little too light for my skin tone, this particular shade would be beautiful on fairer complexions. I do love the convenience factor as well as the easy application and blending of this so I can't wait to add a couple of the darker shades to my stash!





QUICK FIX POWDER ($20.00)

Luxe no-colour finishing powder for a soft-focus finish.

• Invisible & lightweight, this powder creates a velvet matte, perfected look
• Buff on top of makeup to set & blend, or on bare skin for an air-brushed effect


As someone with combination skin that's prone to breakouts, Summers mean lots and lots of excessive oil production. I mean, I could fry an omelette on my T-zone! To try to combat getting super greasy, I only use a light BB cream, rather than foundation, and a setting powder on the particularly troublesome areas. I'm really enjoying this one, which is light with a very pleasing texture that goes on smooth and quickly absorbs any excess oil or product after I apply makeup. I toss it in my purse for quick touch-ups when I'm out and about--just a quick dusting on and then off does wonders to keep the oiliness at bay.


TIP: Want to set your cream lipstick or gloss into a perfect matte? Just hold a tissue over your lips after applying the lipstick of your choice and dust some of this powder over the tissue. It will absorb the oils/gloss and leave your lips with all the color! A easy hack I've been using for years!






MAKEUP FIXING MIST ($15.00)

All-over setting spray for longer-wearing makeup


• Prolongs makeup wear and keeps it from moving, melting, and settling into fine lines or pores
• The rose water and green tea infused formula comforts, protects and balances skin for a fresh face
• Extends and refreshes makeup, hydrates and balances
• Sets makeup adds a soft-focus finish



I have already RAVED about my love of this mist HERE but I just have to reiterate--this setting mist is a GODSEND in the heat. The last thing you want after taking your time to get your makeup just right is for it to smudge or, worse, melt off. Spritz on a generous bit of this mist, wait til it dries and go on your merry way, without worry!





So there you have it, my darlings! You can pick up any of these Summer essentials on Pixi Beauty's site HERE. Shipping, as always, is free over $25 within the US!
