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?

  • Part ✌🏼This is an eye look that I like doing when I don’t have time but I want it to look like I made an effort. Just grab a bold, deep shade, pack it on the lid, and then use a lighter, transition shade to blend that out. Off you go. What’s your favorite eye look?

  • #EsteeLaudergiftedme I have been using the famous @esteelauder Advanced Night Repair the last couple of nights and I can see why this is a cult favorite. As soon as I apply it, I feel my skin getting softer and plumper. What’s best, is that when I wake up, my skin still feels good. My one issue is that a little doesn’t go a long way. It gets absorbed super quickly into the skin so you have to work fast if you want to make it last. Have you tried this serum? #esteelauder #esteebeauties

He estado usando este serum de @esteelauder las últimas noches y WOW 😱Es increíble el efecto tan rápido que esto tiene en la piel. Se absorbe súper rápido y casi de inmediato la piel se siente más suave e hidratada. Ya lo han usado antes?
