Pixi H20 Skin Tint | The Review

DSC01171

You all know I have a love for makeup bases. I write about everything I have tried in the past. You can check them all out here!

I have been a huge fan of the Pixi by Petra brand every since Judy from ItsJudysLife talked about her in one of her blogs. I first tried the Pixi Brow Duo (which I am on my second tube already). I made a review on that product here

I love Pixi for their REAL makeup. When I say real, I mean that they encourage their followers to embrace their own and take care of their skin. They don’t really have any out of a girl’s comfort zone. Their skincare caters to a whole range of skin types in a bunch skin care steps!


But today, I want to talk about the Pixi H20 Skin Tint. It is a lightweight water-based tinted face gel that evens out your skin tone and give you the perfect no makeup-makeup look. 

This base is basically perfect for someone who loves a light base and not too much coverage. BUT I wish this had even a bit of SPF in it. Skin cancer is amongst us people! We have to protect our face at all times.

The gel itself comes out quite thick out of the tube but evens out quickly when you blend it all around your face. I wouldn’t say that this base is in no way long lasting because when you put it on, you don’t really notice that its on anyway…?

So would I recommend this to any of you? Maybe, maybe not.. If you want something light and fuss free then go right ahead! But if you are looking for something to cover up essentially, save your wallet for a more useful purchase!

Huge Colourpop Haul and Swatches!

DSC01216

So, I just made an order for Colourpop a few weeks ago and I am so not guilty about it. I mainly got products from the lip section because it is infamously known for their great quality and value. I mean $6 for something of that caliber. Damn!


The Colourpop has recently branched out too a bunch of other beauty ranges like powders, highlighters, eyeshadows and a ton of different collaborations with well-known beauty aficionados. But they are mainly known to have a wide range liquid lipsticks that range from Ultra matte lip, Ultra satin lip, Ultra glossy lip, Ultra metallic lip, Lippie Stix and many many more.

Since I had the chance to order some, I had to narrowed down the products that I wanted to what I actually needed(basically the shades that I can use to work everyday). I previously purchased Ultra Matte Lip in Beeper and the Ultra Satin Lip in Echo Park, and after some testing I thought that the formula of the Satin Lip was WAY more comfortable to wear than the Matte Lip.

DSC01198Let me start with the Lippie Stix shades… The Colourpop Lippie Stix in Boys Town Creme is a great rich creamy nude shade. This has got to be the most comfortable one of the bunch. Then the Colourpop Lippie Stix in Cami Matte is a matte dusty rose color. It isn’t too pink toned, which I like. While the Colourpop Lippie Stix in Hype Girl Matte is a bit to barbie-esque for me. I shall wait for a fancy dress party and try to pull of a Barbie make up look then!

For the liquid lipsticks, I was generally going for more of the Satin Lip spectrum. The Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Calypso, I found was a (sort of) dupe for the Colourpop Lippie Stix in Cami Matte. The Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in Chi is a more brown nude but not too brown that of the Ultra Matte Lip in Beeper. It reminds me of the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bow N Arrow, but a tad bit darker. While the Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Aquarius is a light pink-ish nude, not too barbie for my taste!

The cherry on top of all these has got to be the Colourpop Super Shock Highlighter in Lunch Money! It’s color pay-off is mind blowing! When you look at it with the packaging, it looks like a powder, but when you actually swatch it, it feels like a cream! It was love at first sight with this one! Watch out for some instagram looks with this new highlighter!
