It's been a while since I've written a Lipstick Love post so today I thought I'd show you this one from Pixi by Petra. It should be noted that I love this one so much that I am now on my second one and I only discovered it about a year ago!
I first discovered Pixi on beautybay.com and became a big fan of their Flawless Primer but now I'm even happier because Marks & Spencer now stock it as part of their beauty department which means that I can buy it online and in store now. I was amazed the other week when I went in, Marks & Spencer have had a total overhaul of their beauty section and now there are lots of well known brands both high end and the old favourites, I'm actually going to write a post on it soon so I'll stop talking about that now.
Anyway, getting back to Lipstick Love, today's is a Pixi by Petra Shea Butter lip balm. I find balm's can be a bit wishy washy in colour, not so with this one, it's a lovely deep pink colour which you can build up into a very strong pink should you so wish. The balm part is really good, it isn't sticky or overly glossy so it doesn't slide off your lips, in fact it doesn't transfer easily, I find it does last quite a long time. There are several colours in the range but this is the one that suited me most because it was a stronger colour, the one pictured is called Ripe Raspberry.
Since I bought this I've also purchased a Pixi concealer quad which I have used far more than I expected to and will definitely re-purchase, it's a stable part of my concealer collection now.
Pixi can be purchased on their own website www.pixibeauty.co.uk or on www.beautybay.com and in Marks & Spencer's stores too. I'll definitely be adding more of their products to my ever growing cosmetic and skincare collection in the future. I would love to know your Pixi favourites if you've got any too.
