Summer Makeup Essentials with Pixi

Pixi Beauty and Pixi Skintreats Summer Essentials

Welcome to August aka the dog days of summer. While I love my dog I have to say that August days can be a drag. We aren’t as excited about summer as before and the heat can get to us. We still want to look great but we don’t necessarily want or need to spend a long time on looking great. PIXI by Petra has chosen 4 products that they think are perfect for summer and helping you get a carefree look that’s fuss free.

Pixi Skintreats Makeup Fixing Mist

Pixi’s Makeup Fixing Mist is going to be the number one product that you’ll need this summer and into the fall. It’s a makeup setting mist that not only helps your cosmetics last longer but it’s a refreshing pick me up at any time that you feel you are drooping.

Pixi Skintreats Makeup Fixing Mist

This rose water and green tea infused formula comforts, protects and balances skin for a fresh face. You can spray it on your face or do what I do – spray it onto a big fluffy brush to set makeup to make it last longer. It’s very hydrating. I’m not someone that likes fragrance in products and this does contain fragrance but with the fluffy brush I notice it a lot less than if I spray it on. It’s terrific for cooling you down no matter the situation.

Pixi Skintreats Nourishing Lip Polish

One of my favorite Pixi Skintreat items is Nourishing Lip Polish. This is an exfoliating scrub that contains apricot & grapefruit oils. I need this all year long. First I’m a lip biter so I need to smooth out my lips because of that and second I get horribly chapped lips in winter and need to exfoliate even before a lip balm.

Pixi Skintreats Nourishing Lip Polish

It’s so easy that a mirror isn’t needed. This is a great protector for your lips that has a nutrient-rich formula smoothes lips with shea butter & a blend of sweet almond, apricot, and evening primrose oils. The exfoliating tip will massage your lips so they’ll look plumper.

Now onto Pixi Beauty and more products that are truly wonderful. Pixi Beauty has 5 MultiBalms that are 2-in-1 products for your cheeks and lips. As a dyed-in-the-wool cream blush lover these are right up my alley.

Pixi by Petra MultiBalm for Cheek & Lips

These make summer so easy since you can use it and look twice as nice. It’s a creamy product that’s not tacky, has no fragrance, and is infused with aloe vera, shea butter, and rose hip oil to protect.

Pixi by Petra MultiBalm for Cheek & Lips

There are 5 shades so there’s something for everyone. Pixi believes that Baby Petal is the easiest and most universal but I love them all.

Pixi MultiBalms: Bare Petal, Sheer Sculpt, Soft Strawberry, Watermelon Veil, Wild Rose (brighter light)

At just $12 these are wonderful to have in a variety of colors.

One last product to add to your summer essentials list: Pixi by Petra Quick Fix Powder. This makes apply powder so easy, you don’t need any tools since it’s all in the container.

Pixi by Petra Quick Fix Powder

This translucent powder can be a setting powder or can be used on its own to give your skin an airbrushed look. Most powders are messy but not Quick Fix. The container holds it in and you use the puff to get the powder to release. When done, just close it up and you’ll have no spillage.

4 summer essentials from Pixi are really only the beginning of all that Pixi has to offer. But they are certainly ones you won’t want to be without. Pixi is affordable beauty. Be sure you sign up for their emails since they always have specials to help you get more for your money. And the fun of shopping at Target is only enhanced when you check out Pixi there.

    The Pixi 2-in-1 balms are so cute and the color range is very nice!

  2. Jen Mathews | 1st Aug 17

    I love the balms for lips and cheeks. I think the powder formula is amazing, but I don’t like the sponge applicator – I end up with uneven white spots on my face. A big fluffy brush is so much better.

  3. Erika | 1st Aug 17

    I haven’t tried this line, yet but I’d like to.

  4. Linda M | 1st Aug 17

    Pixi makes great products. My favorite is the Correction Concentrate. It lasts all day.

  5. gloria patterson | 1st Aug 17

    All of these products sound great but you really got me with this remark

    “”I’m not someone that likes fragrance in products and this does contain fragrance but with the fluffy brush I notice it a lot less than if I spray it on “”

    What a great tip about using the fluffy brush!! I have apply product before and it had fragrance that really bugged me so I would wash it off. I am going to try trick!

  10. Deb E | 2nd Aug 17

    I keep meaning to try these and must look them up at Target. Since they are so affordable, I know I can try several. I’d try the Quick Fix Powder first.

  11. Kathryne | 2nd Aug 17

    I hate summertime, it’s a good thing I work in a very cold clinic so that helps. Can’t wait for fall

  12. Polarbelle | 2nd Aug 17

    ooooooh, now I want to try the multi-purpose balms! I had no idea they were so pretty! I think I’d like all the colors.

    Those 2-1 balms look amazing! I really need to go pick up a few of these on my next trip to Target!

  14. Tiana Senn | 2nd Aug 17

    I’ve been wanting to try the Makeup Fixing Mist! I just recently started trying the pixi line and I’m really enjoying their products! =)

  15. Babi | 2nd Aug 17

    Pixi Beauty makes the best products! I’m currently loving so many things from them, like their sheer tints and Glow Tonic!
