Succulent Lip Twin ($18) combines a multi-purpose lip balm in a tube with a solid lip and cheek tint in the cap. Ingredients include Aloe Vera, Jojoba Oil, Lavender extract, Vitamin E and Shea Butter so you can nourish, soothe and heal stressed skin while adding a tint of color to your lips and cheeks.
There are 4 shades to choose from, Nude Lilly, Coral Camellia, Pink Peony and Poppy Red. I have Pink Peony, a bright hot pink color that is gorgeous and perfect for spring.
Although the lip balm applied smoothly and gaves my lips a nice pop of color and shine, it felt a little greasy and had a very strong smell that I was not too fond of.
The lip and cheek tint, on the other hand, was great! It was highly pigmented and really easy to use. All I had to do was apply 3 dots directly onto the apples, blend and I got a natural-looking flush that stayed on all day. I also like using this on my lips for a rosy look..
Endless Silky Eye Pen ($14) is a waterproof, non-transfer eyeliner that claims to deliver the intense effect of a liquid liner at the ease of a pencil.
It comes in 6 colors, Black Noir, Black Blue, Black Tulip, Black Cocoa, Deep Plum and True Teal. Black Blue is a deep navy color with really fine shimmer.
The pencil had a buttery texture and went on easily without pulling or tugging the skin. While the effect was a little short of a liquid liner, the color was pigmented and did make my brown eyes pop. Plus once the liner set, it stayed on all day with zero budging or smearing until I take it off.
Finally, Lumi Lux Radiance Power ($26) is an all-over illuminating powder in shades of peachy gold, rose, pinky peach and nude with a beautiful floral design. The colors can be used separately or altogether on the face, cheeks, eyes and décolleté to add radiance and perk up tired skin.
Below I am wearing Pixi Succulent Lip Twin in Pink Peony on the cheeks and lips and Endless Silky Eye Pen in Blue Black smudged around the eyes.
Since I already own a few Pixi palettes with similar colors, I will be giving the Pixi Lumi Lux Radiance Powder away to one lucky reader. To enter, just leave a comment here by 2/10.
