I don't know what is it with me and lip balms lately, I have this urge to buy all types of lip balms that is available on the market. I have been collecting a lot of tinted lip balms, unscented lip balms, weird tasting lip balms and so on...
Two weeks ago I have picked up three Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balms from feelunique.com while they were having a 3 for 2 promotion. So if you purchase three Pixi lip balms or any Pixi products, you only have to pay for two and that is some great deal, cause these Pixi shea butter lip balms aren't so cheap.
Before I purchase these three lip balms, I wasn't familiar with the brand Pixi at all. I have came across pictures of their products on the internet but I have never heard of anyone raves or even talk about them. From looking at their website, I think they are an UK based cosmetics company?! I am actually not sure because I can't find an "about us" section on their website and from looking at the products on their website, it doesn't look like something I would usually purchase.
My first impression of the Pixi website is... it looks budget >.< and expensive! But the actual product itself is another story! **Don't judge a book by its cover**
There are six colors available to purchase for the Pixi Shea Butter range, most of the time a lot of these colors are sold out! I managed to pick up Pixi Pink, Coral Crush (both are tinted balms) and Comfort Clear (which is pretty much a clear balm).
My first impression upon receiving the Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balms was... cutest packagings ~ Simple but adorable at the same time! Each tube comes packaged with a cap that matches its lip balm color on the inside and each lip balm comes shaped in a flat top, which makes the application so much easier to apply.

Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm swatches - Coral Crush & Pixi Pink
As you can see in the swatches above, one was taken at night time with flash on and another was in day time without flash, both shows the tinted lip balms (Coral Crush & Pixi Pink) being super pigmented. Comfort Clear is pretty much a clear balm, so it doesn't show any color.
Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balms are described as a multi-tasking miracle lip balm which awaken lips with a formula that is rich but lightweight and gives a gorgeous wash of color to the lips. It is described as a perfect pick-me-up any time balm and it is packed full of beneficial ingredients which can soothes lips immediately & nourishes them long term.
These balms includes beneficial ingredients such as shea butter which nourishes the skin and Vitamin E which protects the skin. Simply apply these shea butter lip balms onto lips and layering for more color intensity if using the tinted balms.
I am currently loving Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balms in Comfort Clear, the clear one. The formula is quite buttery, but not heavy and it is very moisturising. Remember when everyone was crazy about the Maybelline Baby Lips? Well that can't even compare to the Pixi Shea Butters.
Pixi Shea Butters are available to purchase from feelunique and beautybay, they are USD $14.00 each and each tube of lip balms contains 4g of products.
Overall, I am impressed with these lip balms. ^-^ Next time I want to get the tinted balm in Natural Rose, a gorgeous soft rosey mauve shade. Most of the time I checked, it's always sold out... So *fingers cross* hopefully next time I order it's available.
Do you own any Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balms? What do you think of them?
