PIXI Beauty Succulent Lip Twin and Illuminating Tint and Conceal - Review

I have seen the Pixi brand stand whilst out shopping for makeup, curious but not quite enough to actually pick anything up, I revisited the brand recently when I was looking at high street products for paraben free makeup for my mum who is allergic to parabens. Not all products from Pixi are paraben free but the Lip Twin is.

The philosophy behind the brand, taken from the Pixi website - 'Pixi is about multitasking, flaw-fixing, youth-enhancing products for women on-the-go with no time to spare.'

I was sent two products from Pixi for review - the Pixi Succulent Lip Twin in Coral Camellia and Pixi Illuminating Tint and Conceal in Bare Glow 

Illuminating Tint and Conceal with SPF20

When the weather is warm and sunny I do prefer to use a lighter foundation or tint during the day, it is hard to remember the last time we had a truly hot and sunny day but I was using this then and as shades go this was pretty much spot on for my skin if giving a very subtle warmth  (it is the second from lightest). It felt moisturising and had the high SPF of 20 for protection.The product is sheer so this is probably one of the lightest tints I have used on my skin, if you prefer more coverage this will not be for you. It made my skin ooze radiance and glow ( it has very slight shimmer particles) and evened out skin tone. I did have to use the concealer for my redness, the concealer is a good coverage concealer that blended nicely into my skin. A good multi-tasking product.

Succulent Lip Twin in Coral Camellia 

Coral sums up Summer for me and is really flattering on pretty much all skin tones. The Lip Twin is a duo of liquid lip balm (in the tube) and in the cap a solid lip and cheek crème.  The lip and cheek crème gives a pretty flush of colour but it is quite sheer so needs to be layered, on the lips I like to pop the balm on top to give a stronger and glossier colour. This has a pleasant sweet smell. My only disappointment is that I can see that I will be finishing the crème before the balm.

Pixi Illuminating Tint and Conceal is available in 4 shades and costs £21.50.
Pixi Succulent Lip Twin is available in 5 shades and costs £12.


  1. I love Pixi beauty but never seen a stand near me, intending a little trip to their flagship store soon though :) great post btw xx

    1. Thank Tia, do you know what products you may be wanting to purchase?

  2. Great helpful review. I have tried the Tint and Conceal in the past but found it a tad on the warm side for my complexion, but the finish was lovely and I find the concept of the packaging genius.


Please leave your comments, I love reading them and will reply to all :-)
