Pixi Sheer Cheek Gel: Review and Swatches
Recently, Pixi kindly sent over a trio of their Sheer Cheek Gel ($14 USD each) for me to test out and they've quickly become a part of my everyday makeup routine! For me, Summer makeup is all about a natural and effortless complexion so these refreshing lightweight gel blushes are the perfect addition. To see some swatches and read my full review, click.....

The Pixi Sheer Cheek Gels are packaged in a simple clear squeeze tube and each tube comes with a generous 12.75g of products. The gel dispenses from a simple flattened spout opening. A pointed spout would have been more convenient in my opinion but the overall packaging is pretty travel-friendly and easy-to-use.

As its name suggests, the Pixi Sheer Cheek Gel is a sheer and lightweight gel blush formulated with water, aloe juice, and propylene glycol. All three shades look pretty pigmented in the tube but once applied, they give a very sheer and natural flush. The formulation is nice and cooling and it blends beautifully. Once absorbed, the product has no discernable texture, leaving behind only a glowy, healthy tint of color.

Rosy: This is a bright pinkish red with a subtle hint of golden shimmers. The color is very sheer and the shimmers are barely visible when blended.
Natural: A soft sheer rose, Natural also has a soft whisper of shimmers but it mostly appears as a soft nude rose when blended out on the cheeks.
Flushed: My favorite out of the three, Flushed is a sheer translucent red that reminds me quite a bit of Benetint from Benefit. The color looks very vampy in the tube but it actually gives the most effortless, youthful blush out of the three!

Overall, I am absolutely loving these! Non-powder blushes are usually not my thing but these Sheer Cheek Gels are so perfect for those no-makeup makeup days. All three colors actually work wonderfully as lip tints as well so dot a bit on the cheeks and blend a pinch on the center of the lips and you are ready to go! The formulation looks the most natural on bare skin but it also seamlessly blends over makeup. The wear isf very impressive as it's completely transfer-proof, give these a try the next time you visit your local Shoppers because these get an A+ from me!
