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?

  • New #dermae goodies! And #texturetuesday if you swipe left ⬅️ I have been loving trying out new skincare, especially moisturizers and anything hydrating. I got sent two @dermae products, both with anti-aging qualities. How do you feel about anti-aging skincare?
🍃 The Advanced Peptide and Collagen Moisturizer helps soften and smooth the appearance of wrinkles. Also, includes antioxidants to help support healthy collagen. Even if you are young and don’t have visible wrinkles, it is super important to be preventive! I haven’t used this one yet, but it felt really nice on my hand and I can’t wait to use it.
🍃Also received the Firming DMAE Eye aloft. This cream lifts, firms, and tightens the delicate eye area. It has #hyaluronicacid which infuses a surge of cooling eye moisture. I have used this a couple of times and really like the way it feels. While it isn’t super heavy, it does feel really hydrating.
Thank you so much #dermaesocial 🙏🏼

Productos nuevos para probar de @dermae! Su hidratante que ayuda a suavizar y disminuir la apariencia de arrugas. Nunca es muy temprano para empezar a prevenir. Y el segundo producto es su crema para la ojos que hidrata, afirma, y levanta la delicada área de los ojos. El #contornodeojos ya lo he usado un par de veces y me ha gustado mucho lo hidrata que hace ver las ojeras.
  • It’s a new week and I am still dealing with my cold 🤦🏻‍♀️Maybe I’ll be cured before the end of the year 🤞🏼What is one thing makeup/skincare related that you struggle with? Something you can’t make look right. For example, for me it is concealer. I have tried so many different things (still testing some), but this is the one area of my face that looks the worst at end of the day. I also feel like it’s a very important one as I want to make sure I get those under eye circles covered, but don’t want it to look cakey. Let’s help each other out! Give me your concealer tips and I’ll try to help you! 👇🏼

Una nueva semana y yo todavía con gripa 🤦🏻‍♀️A lo mejor para el fin de año ya estoy mejor 🤞🏼Cuál es un paso en su rutina de maquillaje/cuidado de la piel con la que tienen dificultades? Que no logran que se vea bien? Por ejemplo, para mi es el corrector para tapar las ojeras. Siempre me parece que es lo peor que se ve al final del día. Quiero asegurarme de que estoy tapando las ojeras pero no quiero que el area se vea pesada. Denme sus tips y ayudémonos! 👇🏼

  • Happy #Sunday! A little #throwback to the end of the summer when I had a fresh tan (that has now faded) and was playing with the @hourglasscosmetics #scatteredlight shadow in Smoke. Only used some bronzer and the #hourglass shadow to add a little something. Love how easy these were to use. I had no trouble with fallout throughout the day or longevity.
•
I hope you all had a very relaxing weekend ♥️
•
Feliz Domingo! Esto fue al final del verano cuando todavía estaba bronceadita y estrenaba la sombra de @hourglasscosmetics en el tono Smoke. Son súper fáciles de usar! Yo no tuve ningún problema durante el día, al final se veía igual que apenas la apliqué.
•
Espero todos hayan tenido un buen fin de semana ♥️
  • Happy Friday! I hope you’re on your way to a lovely, relaxing weekend. Any plans? I will be doing homework and playing with some makeup. These are all products I have been using for a while now and love. Still obsessed with the @thrivecausemetics eyeshadow palette. The quality is amazing and you really don’t need anything more. Can’t go wrong with the @marcbeauty bronzer. It has to be one of my all-time favorites. @maybelline has some of the BEST mascaras and the @beccacosmetics highlighters are the most beautiful.
•
Feliz Viernes! Espero se estén preparando para un fin de semana súper relajado. Estos son todos productos que he usado ya un tiempo y todos me encantan. Les súper recomiendo las sombras de #thrivecausemetics. La verdad que no se necesita más. Los polvos bronceadores de #marcbeauty son de los mejores que he usado.
  • #SaturdaySkinGiftedMe What’s the last skincare you tried? A little skincare, a little newness. The @farmacybeauty Green Clean is my favorite way to take off my makeup. I then use the @freshbeauty Soy Face Cleanser.  their Peel Gel - and I really liked how gentle it was. My skin was not red afterwards and it is just a very satisfying feeling. I would only do this maybe once every couple of weeks but it is a nice complement to my routine.
•
NEW - the @fur_you Silk Scrub (gifted). This is a gentle exfoliant to be used 2-3 times a week on your body. It can also be used as a mask, but I see myself using it after I shave. I’ve only tried it on my hand so far and I was very impressed by how gentle it was. It didn’t feel scratchy. And I LOVE the packaging. It is so practical and hygienic.
•
Productos para la piel! Para quitarme el maquillaje uso #GreenClean de @farmacybeauty seguido por el #soyfacecleanser de #freshbeauty. Una nueva adición es el exfoliante de #furyou para el cuerpo. Ya lea contaré qué tal!

  • Sharing an #motd today! If you’re not familiar with @colourpopcosmetics, they have amazing quality eyeshadows and so many eyeshadow palettes to choose from. They also always have sales going on and just amazing quality. Other great #drugstorebeauty products include the @physiciansformula #butterbronzer and #butterhighlighter. The bronzer is so good and they released new shades this year. The @lorealmakeup lumi glotion is amazing if you like the glowy makeup look. It is a dupe for the #charlottetilbury Hollywood flawless filter.

What are your favorite drugstore makeup products?

Si no han escuchado de #colourpopcosmetics, esta marca es súper económica pero la calidad es súper buena y vale la pena. Además tienen una gran seleccion de productos. Otros productos de farmacia que son súper buenos, los polvos bronceadores de #physiciansformula.
