I’ve been a longtime fan of Pixi’s skincare products, but I had yet to try any of their makeup items, so a while back, I picked up this Pixi Sheer Cheek Gel in Flushed ($13.99) to try.
I had high hopes for this product, since generally it seems that people enjoy Pixi’s makeup products. Although the shade Flushed looked very deep in the tube, I had a feeling that I would get a nice wash of color on my cheeks.
Unfortunately, this product didn’t really work out for me. After blending out the color on my cheeks, it just washes away into nothing. I tried using my fingers for maximum pigment retention, but it didn’t help. When I tried to layer on more, the blush started getting patchy and uneven. I tried it a few times to give it a good chance, but it just seemed like this blush and I weren’t meant to be…
I’ll be passing this on to someone who would enjoy this much more than I would. If you’re looking to try out this blush, please keep in mind that if you’re medium skin tone like me or deeper, this is likely not to show up on your skin.
