It’s Fall here in the States and that means that colder weather, dry skin, and chapped lips are here. I tend to super picky when it comes to lip products as I don’t like products that are going to dry out my lips more. I also like products that nourish my lips while still providing colors, that’s where Pixi Lip Products come in. Pixi has two sets of products that fit this criteria, their Shea Butter Lip Balms and MatteLustre Lipsticks. For more info on these Pixi Lip Products just keep scrolling!
Pixi Lip Products Shea Butter Lip Balm
Claims: Nourishing Lip Balm | Shea Butter | Vitamin E | Sheer to Light Coverage | 6 Shades
Size: 0.14 oz.
The Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm is a nourishing lip balm that contains shea butter and vitamin E in it to help nourish the lips. The coverage for this Shea Butter Lip Balm is a slight wash of color that comes in 6 shades; Pixi Pink, Natural Rose, Honey Nectar, Ripe Raspberry, Sweet Peach, and Scarlet Sorbet. The three shades that I have are Natural Rose, Sweet Peach, and Ripe Raspberry. The packaging for the Shea Butter Lip Balm is a plastic green base with a top that is “similar” in color to the shade of the lip product.
I personally love the slight color that the Shea Butter Lip Balms get and the sheen that they leave on the lips. I do find these to be very nourishing on the lips even though they aren’t long lasting. However, with a lip balm I’m not expecting hours of use so I’m perfectly fine with the amount of wear these have. I have to say that my only real issue is the packaging of the Shea Butter Lip Balms. The packaging for these feels super cheap and fake, almost like something you’d expect from kids play makeup. Having reviewed multiple Pixi products in the past I’ve come to expect better from them and this is disappointing.

Pixi Lip Products MatteLustre Lipstick
Claims: Matte Lipstick | Demi-Matte Formula | Full-Coverage | Vitamin E | 11 Shades
Size: 0.13 oz.
The Pixi MatteLustre Lipstick is a full-coverage demi-matte lipstick that has hyaluronic acid and vitamins C & E in it to nourish and plump the lips. As mentioned, the coverage for the MatteLustre Lipstick is full-coverage and comes in 11 shades; Plump Pink, Petal Pink, Peach Blossom, Rose Naturelle, Honey Bare, Coral Red, Bitten Rose, Classic Red, Plum Berry, Raspberry Blush, and Pure Fuchsia. The three shades that I have are Peach Blossom, Rose Naturelle, and Bitten Rose. The packaging for the MatteLustre Lipstick are a plastic green base with a green top. The shade of the lipstick can be seen via the bottom.
The MattreLustre lipsticks apply with a luster to them and can be matted down by either tapping with a finger or blotting. I personally blot by kissing the back of my hand, and then washing my hands of course, so that no tissue sticks to my lips. I personally love how moisturizing these are for a matte lipstick, how drying matte lipsticks are is usually why I avoid them as my lips are already dry enough. Due to the demi-matte formula and the how moisturizing these lipsticks are they are definitely not transfer proof so if you’re looking for that in a lipstick these won’t be for you. I personally loved them though!

Final Thoughts on Pixi Lip Products
I like that there are two different nourishing Pixi Lip Products to choose from. For those who prefer a more tinted balm kind of product there is the Shea Butter Lip Balm and for those who want a nourishing lipstick theres the MatteLustre Lipstick. Either way you can’t go wrong with these lip products and I highly suggest picking up one or both the next time you’re at Target!
