My personal favorite from Glamourbox’ April Box! I’ve never heard about Pixi to be honest! Prior to receiving the box, I haven’t been using lip balm. I think the last time I applied lip balm was a year ago. I don’t use lipstick as well because I have a nasty habit of licking my lips constantly when wearing lipstick. (I didn’t take a photo of it before I opened it so I’m borrowing a photo courtesy of http://www.hqhair.com)
The product has a very long name so I’d like to call it Pixi Lip Balm for the sake of this review. What I love about the Pixi Lip Balm are the following:
- It moisturizes my lips.
- It gives a light pink color to my lips which looks natural.
- You can twist the bottom to let out the lip balm.
- It lasts so there’s no need to re-apply numerous times over the day.
Let me explain a little bit more about my points above. I haven’t been moisturizing my lips so it has a dry and cracked feel. When I used the Pixi Lip Balm, my lips immediately felt very soft. I’m not pulling your leg! It really made my lips very soft. I didn’t notice the tint until later. My sister mentioned my lips being pinkish so I got a tissue paper and dabbed it on my lips. That’s when I realized it gave my lips a lively color.
The twist-y thing in the bottom made it possible for me to carry the Pixi Lip Balm in my bag. My son broke the cover to I was concerned about leaving the balm exposed to dirt. Also, that would mean I won’t be able to bring it around with me. But I took out one of my old eye liner’s cover and fitted it in. It wasn’t long enough to cover the balm but when I realized I can twist it at the bottom to pull it back in, the make-shift cover worked well!
Lastly, unless I drink juice or coffee, eat one full meal or smear cupcake icing on my lips, the tint really stays on. I only re-apply it during the day to moisturize but basically, the tint lasts.
I’ve recommended this to my closest friends and I practically can not stop talking about it! It’s a little expensive but I totally feel it’s worth it! Also, did I mention that I love how this brand has a fairy theme! I’ve always dreamed of getting a fairy tattooed in my back. My twitter name is dtallestfairy and I used to be called fairy by my two best friends. What can I say? I love fairies!
All in all, this product gets an A from me! It’s worth every cent and should the one I have run out, you can bet I’m buying another one!
