Hello Guys! I went Target-ing a couple of days ago with one specific mission in mind, to take a look at some Pixi Beauty products. Guess what, there were a lot of stuff I liked and I was really confused as to which product I should buy.
I’ve heard a lot of great things about Pixi beauty products and judging from what I saw in Target, I felt like I didn’t wanna leave. I enjoyed gazing at the sheer amount of pastel green tubes, compacts, containers, and bottles in the Pixi beauty aisle, which is a refreshing take compared to some of the ultra-glossy and saturated beauty packaging nowadays. I really wanted to take home their Highlight & Contour Palette (Strobe & Sculpt) but I also couldn’t take my eyes off their MatteLast Liquid Lip ($14). In the end, I bought three of them.
Here are the swatches:
Pastel Petal – Beige Nude. Slightly too nude for me, but still wearable for that edgy look, especially if you dramatize your eye makeup. This is a great shade if you have a fair to light skin complexion.
Really Rose – Rosy Brown. I love this perfect blend of muted rose and brown. The rose is almost like a coral-brick that looks really good on any skin tone.
Evening Rose – Mauve Brown. Another well-crafted shade that looks one or two shade darker than the Really Rose. This really makes for a beautiful pout.
The packaging is solid and well-done, except for the brush applicator that seems a little too soft for me. I find that I prefer a firm and sturdy brush applicator for any liquid lipsticks even the mattes, because it makes it easier for me to define or line the edge of my lips.
Other than that brush applicator that could do some improvements, this MatteLast Liquid Lip is almost perfect. It settles like a true matte liquid lipstick and it’s not too drying. It is transfer-proof and really long lasting. It also smells like a fruity bubblegum. I also find it to be comforting on the lips and really lightweight. On top of that, it’s even well-pigmented, and even though there were only 5 shades released, the colors are universally flattering. My only regret is not buying them all.
Bottom line, the Pixi MatteLast Liquid Lip is a really good and well-done matte liquid lipstick. It is comparable to a lot of fan-favorite matte liquid lipsticks out there but with an affordable price tag. All the shades are gorgeous and they really look good on everyone’s lips.
Now, I can’t wait for my next Target escapade. Aren’t you?
Happy FriYay Friends!
