It’s no secret that we’re big fans of Pixi. We’ve written about why you need to add the brand to your beauty lineup and why the Glow Tonic is a miracle worker. So naturally, it was pretty exciting for us to hear that one of the best brands in makeup online Australia offers were bringing out a new product.
The Pixi Beauty Balm officially arrives on our shores - and at Oz Hair & Beauty - today so we thought we’d give it a little introduction. Released as a higher coverage foundation counterpart to the already popular H2O Skin Tint - Pixi’s version of a tinted moisturiser with a semi-matte finish - Pixi’s Beauty Balm is promising natural, skin perfecting coverage.
Even though the term ‘high coverage’ is often associated with caked on makeup and drying foundation bases, this new Beauty Balm is far from it. Thanks to a mixture of tried and tested ingredients that Pixi uses across its skin care and makeup range, this foundation is more along the lines of a really, really good multi-purpose BB cream.
Ceramide and hyaluronic acid lead the line up ingredients in the Beauty Balm, which means that your skin will stay moisturised all day minus the greasy texture. Ceramides are lipids or fats that are naturally found in the top layer of your skin. It’s like a protective layer that protects your skin against damage but age and sun damage reduces the effectiveness of your natural ceramides. This can lead to dehydrated, rougher skin and wrinkles! So the addition of ceramide to something like the Beauty Balm will reinforce your skin’s barrier and increase hydration, resulting in plumper and firmer feeling skin, and help on the anti aging front as well.
And there’s probably no need to tell you that hyaluronic acid is the ultimate ingredient that will replenish any lost moisture through its ability to draw moisture from its surroundings. Together with the ceramide, it really helps with signs of aging like the fine lines and wrinkles.
Rosemary and chamomile also make appearances on the ingredient list to sooth and calm your skin. All of these come things come together to even out your skin tone and give you flawless, and most importantly natural complexion.
How do I apply it?
It essentially works like any other foundation so simply start from the middle of the face and blend out and down. You can use a makeup brush or if you’re after light coverage, you can even use your fingers - we talk about that in more detail in our blog on foundation tips.
If you’re after extra hydration, apply a thin layer of Pixi H2O Skin Drink beforehand and let it sink it, or you can even mix it in with a little bit of the super luxe Pixi Rose Ceramide Cream for a sheer coverage or that ‘no-makeup’ makeup look.
Because of its buildable nature, the Beauty Balm is like the next step up from your lighter BB and CC creams, and with six shades to choose from, you’ll have no trouble to find one that’s perfect for you.
