Summer Tints With Pixie

Who doesn't love an effortless summer makeup?

It's hot, the sun is shinning and all I want to do is be outside. Soaking it all up. The days don't last long enough and the season is over before we know it. For this reason I'm looking for something effortless for day-to-day wear.

Pixi By Petra launched a line of GelTint and Silk Glosses along with Sheer Cheek Gel's.

These have quickly become a few of my favourites. The Sheer Gel Blush is beautiful. Easy to apply and just adds a natural flush to the cheeks.

The Gel Tint & SilkGloss is a Long-lasting lip tint, that gives a beautiful stain to the lips. It is infused with Jojoba oil for maximum hydration. They are meant to wear layered or separately if you prefer.


The Cheek Gels are available in three shades

Natural-  A dusty Rose tone. This shade is very natural , as it's titled. It gives a very subtle tint to the skin.

Rosy- A reddish toned tint.

Flushed- A deep Plum/wine toned tint.

I apply with my fingers typically, but would also apply nicely with a stippling or duo fiber brush. The formula is light weight. I don't find it to be tacky or sticky as some cheek tints can be. These are very sheer. Again giving the face a natural tint versus the more pigmented wash of colour cream blushes would provide.
