Even though these launched several weeks ago, lately I’ve been having an absolute moment with Pixi’s On-The-Glow Blushes. Yes, they do look like deodorant sticks (but please don’t apply them to your pits), which is what makes them fun/funny — but it’s what they deliver that truly impresses me.
On-the-Go Blush Tinted Moisture Stick (CAN $24.00/each) | Housed in deodorant-esque plastic cases that bear the colour of each shade on the cap (soooo convenient), these are crème blushes in twist-up form. The formula contains ginseng which aids in revitalizing & balancing the skin, Aloe Vera for its soothing & calming properties, Fruit Extracts to help promote cellular turnover, and Vitamins for added anti0xidant benefits. Considering their balmy nature, each is surprisingly quite pigmented. The wide yet thin proportions of the stick make it super efficient to lay down a good amount of product per swipe, and blending couldn’t be easier; all you need is your fingers. Their emollient texture also means that they won’t dry down completely, and if it’s a dewy fresh look you’re after, then look no further. While only available in 3 shades, the range is still easily adaptable to a variety of complexions & undertones. Surprisingly, staying powder was easily a few hours long, despite the creaminess of the product.
Can be worn on both cheeks and lips.
Considering how balmy these are, the colour payoff is a pleasant surprise. I love how simple they are to use and how convenient the thin case is, making this an easy product to keep in your makeup bag. But the best part is the juicy-looking way they make skin glow; plump and fresh, and bursting with vitality. The added skincare ingredients in the formula don’t hurt the cause, either.
- Juicy – soft apricot
- Fleur – rose pink
- Ruby – muted cherry
My love of luxury beauty is not exactly a secret, but Pixi is a mass-market brand that I have full faith in, as everything I’ve tried to date has delivered visible results — both in colour cosmetics & skincare alike, with price points that can’t be beat when you also factor in the performance. Bottom line: these On-The-Go Blushes took me by surprise, as they not only deliver excellent colour and ease of use, but give my skin that healthy flush + sheen that you just can’t get from powder. I’m 100% sold.
