My First PR Package | Pixi Beauty

If you’re a beauty blogger or some sort of influencer, you know that receiving your first PR package feels like the biggest accomplishment. I have received products before from Influenster, or from a couple of other brands in exchange for an Instagram feature, but nothing like this. If you’re not familiar with Pixi, they are a drugstore brand available online and at Target. Pixi is a skincare and makeup brand, and interested in offering that natural look, enhancing natural beauty. I have been a fan of Pixi for a while now, I’ve gone through so many bottles of Glow Tonic, and I’ve also used their Double Cleanse. Most recently, I have been using their Endless Silky Eye Pen. I am so grateful for this package and I can’t wait to review these products for you!

What’s In It?

The products came packaged beautifully with a working lock with Pixi on it. On the left side, there were two Skin Treats products. The Rose Caviar Essence is a moisture serum and should be applied after cleansing and toner. The second product, the Rose Flash Balm, can be used as a moisturizer/primer or as a mask. If you want to use it under makeup, applying a very thin layer is enough. It is important that you do not rub it. To use it as a mask, apply a thicker layer and leave for five minutes.

By using a serum, people are able to intensify the strength of their regimen or round out the ingredients they are applying to their skin to provide a more comprehensive approach to anti-aging and hydration. – Dr. Adam Greyer

On the other side of the package, the most beautiful lipsticks. These are a somewhat recent release, the MatteLast Liquid Lips. I received five out of six shades that are available, Pastel Petal, Matte Beige, Really Rose, Au Naturalle, Evening Rose, and Prettiest Pink. The only shade I did not receive was Prettiest Pink.

First Impressions

Rose Caviar Essence

I haven’t tried one serum that I feel like makes a difference. Also, I wouldn’t say I have sensitive skin, but there have been serums that have “broke me out.” The reason I put that in quotations is because this break out is usually one spot that looks more like a mosquito bite. This serum feels really nice and hydrating upon application. I haven’t used it enough to be able to give you my honest thoughts, look back for a complete review!

Rose Flash Balm

This one confused me a little bit. I went to use it as a moisturizer, and usually, I like to massage my face with the product. It’s a great way to make sure your skin absorbs the product. With this one, since it is to used as a mask also, rubbing causes the product to peel. The second time I used it I was a lot more careful. I made sure to apply a very thin layer and to just spread it, but not rub it, on my face. This worked! It feels really nice on the skin, it is very hydrating, and so far I am really liking it. I am interested to try it as a mask as well.

The only thing I’d say is that I would recommend it if you’re trying to get ready in a rush. Since rubbing it can cause the product to peel, you want to make sure you’re doing it carefully.

MatteLast Liquid Lip

I am obsessed with these! First, the shades in the package are beautiful. Second, they feel so comfortable on the lips. The lipsticks are infused with rosehip oil, and I think this is what makes them so comfortable. They’re not drying, they last well throughout the day, and they look beautiful. I definitely recommend these!

Overall, I am really enjoying these products so far! I am a big fan of the lipsticks and they really impressed me. The balm confused me at first, but I think there’s just a learning curve with it. I look forward to testing these out further and letting you guys know if my opinions change!

Have you tried any Pixi Beauty products before?

  • I don’t think there has ever been a brand I obsessed over as much as I have for @lilahbeauty 😍 This is the most beautiful packaging and presentation I had ever seen. It is a pricey brand, but when you receive the box, open it, and see the little pebble, every penny is worth it. I picked up the Divine Duo Lip & Cheek in b.true, the prettiest #mauve and I am so glad I did. I am still trying it out but there’s no doubt the formula is just as beautiful as the packaging.
•
What’s one brand you’ve been dreaming about trying for a while?
•
No creo que haya otra marca más linda que #lilahbeauty 😍 La presentación y el empaque del producto es hermoso, y hace que todo valga la pena. Esta vez compre el dúo para mejillas y labios, sirve como rubor y labial, en el tono b.true. Aún sigo ensayándolo pero no hay duda de que la fórmula del producto es igual de perfecta que el empaque.
•
Cuál es una marca que han querido probar?

  • @thrivecausemetics is killing it with these amazing releases and I am so happy to be a part of it. This is the NEW Focus Eyeshadow Palette No. 3. The perfect beginner palette in my opinion and the perfect palette for an everyday look. I love how it has everything you need and these are literally the shades I reach for in every palette I own. Can’t wait to start playing with it and letting y’all know my thoughts. Thank you again to #thrivecausemetics and @karissabodnar ♥️

Did you know #Thrive donates one product for every product sold? Have you tried this brand yet?
•
La nueva #paletadesombras de @thrivecausemetics está AQUÍ! Y es perfecta para el día a día. Tiene los tonos perfectos para crear una variedad de looks - estos son los tonos que uso en todas las paletas que tengo y me hace feliz tenerlos todos juntos en una paletita. Si no han escuchado de esta marca, se las recomiendo! Tiene un mensaje y una misión muy linda.
  • Are you lazy? Do you forget everything? Do you only shave exposed leg during the winter? Then you’re just like me and need to check out @sphynx - an all-in-one portable, TSA friendly razor. It comes with a spray, a shave bar, and two razors. They’re all refillable which was my main concern when I received it, but it is so effective. I am not sure if I’d find it practical for a full shave, just because it is really bulky, but if it’s the winter and you missed a spot of exposed leg, this is such a good solution! Thank you to the @yccagency for the opportunity to test it out ♥️

Les mata la pereza? Se les olvida todo? Solo se rasuran lo que queda expuesto de la pierna durante el invierno? Entonces son como yo! Tuve la oportunidad de probar #sphynx que es un todo en uno. Viene con un spray, un bálsamo para afeitarse, y dos cuchillas - todo lo que necesitan para afeitarse cuando están de afán o se les ha olvidado. Ademas lo pueden traer con ustedes en el avión ✈️. No se si lo usaría para una rasurada completa por lo que el empaque es tan grande, pero una gran opción para cuando se les olvida algo!
  • [#flowerbeautygiftedme #soldejaneirogiftedme] New products I am trying and testing - See any favorites?
-> the new @thrivecausemetics Focus Eyeshadow Palette No. 3 is quickly becoming a favorite but I’ve yet to use all the shades.
-> @flowerbeauty Blush Bomb Color Drops in Cinammon. This could be a dupe of the @glossier cloud paints. I really like this shade but I am still making up my mind
-> @soldejaneiro Açaí Body Cream. I’ve already said I really like this. I just noticed it does have a shimmer to it, which I hadn’t noticed before. I don’t mind, but wanted to mention it
-> @lilahbeauty Divine Duo Lip & Cheek in b.true. FINALLY getting to try some #lilahb - the brand with the prettiest packaging
-> @dailyconcepts Jade Roller was so kindly sent to me and I have no idea about the benefits but it feels really nice
•
Productos nuevos que he estado ensayando! Las nuevas sombras de #thrivecausemetics hasta ahora me han encantando. Se ven súper lindas y son fáciles de usar. La crema para el cuerpo de #soldejaneiro como ya les había mencionado me gusta mucho, pero me he dado cuenta que me da a la piel como un brillito entonces lo quería mencionar. Otros que todavía estoy viendo qué tal me parecen! Ven algún favorito?

  • Two new products to try from @dermae and I am so excited! One - the Anti-Wrinkle cleanser which smells amazing. I’ve used it already and so far I really like it. And the Sun Defense Oil-Free Sunscreen. I don’t think it is the type of product I’d use under makeup, but it feels really nice and doesn’t have a strong SPF scent which is usually the case. Have you tried either of these? Thank you to @dermae for gifting these to me!
•
Dos productos para ensayar de #dermae! Uno es un limpiador fácil que ayuda a prevenir arrugas. Huele súper rico y hasta ahora me ha gustado mucho. El segundo producto es un protector solar. No se qué tal se vea debajo de maquillaje, pero me gusta mucho la textura y que además no tiene un olor muy fuerte a protector. Han usado alguno de estos?
