REVIEW || PIXI BY PETRA ON THE GLOW BLUSHER TRIO

Nottingham, UK
Pixi on the glow blusher in a stick

I don't think I've ever liked the formula of cream blushers until trying these Pixi On-the-Glow Blush Sticks. I've tried a few in the past including MAC cream blushers and just felt like they were too hard to work with, especially when it came to blending.

As these are in a handy stick packaging, they're super easy to apply and blend as well as travel-friendly. I always keep a shade in my makeup bag, often switching between shades based on what look I'm going for on the day.

Pixi on-the-glow blush stick in shade juicy

PIXI On-the-Glow Blush in shade Juicy:

This is definitely my favourite shade out of the 3 that I was sent by Pixi. It's a gorgeous bright peachy-orange shade with a lot of warm undertones. It looks absolutely stunning on the skin, very fresh and sun-kissed, with a natural glow. I love wearing it with either an orange lipstick or sometimes put the blusher on my lips straight from the stick followed by my favourite lip oil.

The formula of these blushers is different to any other products I've used as it's not too creamy and not too dry. I don't really use it straight from the stick (only when I wear a tinted moisturiser) so I like to use a stippling brush to apply it to the skin on top of foundation to avoid smearing it before setting it with a translucent powder.


Pixi On-the-Glow Blushers Swatches


PIXI On-the-Glow Blush in shade Ruby:

This is my least favourite shade from the trio but only because it's too dark for my complexion. I think it will look absolutely stunning on darker skin tones, or maybe toned down slightly by blending for lighter skin. This Pixi On-the-Glow blusher is a deep pinky-red shade, that's reminiscent of a winter rose - perfect for the holiday season! 

I actually ended up passing this shade onto my sister who has an olive skin tone as it looks great on her after being out in the sun. I'm sure she'll get more use out of it than I would.

Swatched of the Pixi On-the-Glow blushers in shades Ruby, Juicy and Fleur.


PIXI On-the-Glow Blush in shade Fleur:

This gorgeous blue-toned pink blusher looks stunning on the skin. I feel like it really suits my neutral undertone, but would look equally as lovely on cool undertones too. The formula is the same as the other two shades, but I find that this colour has a bit more depth to it and almost gives a sculpted look when applied in the right places. 

Overall, I think that these blushers are great to use on the go (as the name clearly suggests) as they are very easy to blend with just your fingertips! The only downside to them is if you wear a full-coverage foundation then you’ll need a brush to apply the product without it smearing and separating your foundation (trust me on this one - I’ve learned the hard way). 

Longevity-wise I found that I do need to re-apply the product throughout the day which isn't something I do when wearing powdered blush, but this could be due to not applying enough product. I have read somewhere in the past that apparently blusher is the first product to start wearing off on the face, hence why some makeup artists recommend to layer blush on!

If I were to recommend only one of these shades then it'll have to be Juicy as I truly think it suits all skin tones and is a very wearable colour all year round.

Have you tried any cream makeup products recently? Would you try these blushers?

2020 || JULY FAVOURITES


Oh boy, it has been a long while since I last shared with you my Monthly Favourites. I know that these are the type of posts that everyone likes to read to see and compare your favourites to others'. This month has been a bit hot and cold, hasn't it? Hence why all of my favourites are skincare related as I am still furloughed and not wearing much makeup!

REVIEW || MAC MINERALIZE SKINFINISH IN SOFT & GENTLE, MINERALIZE SKINFINISH NATURAL IN LIGHT, AND MINERALIZE SKINFINISH NATURAL IN GIVE ME SUN!



I have been wanting to try all three of these products for many years now, and have finally treated myself to all of them. At a high price tag I've put off trying these products for so long, and now with my spending ban I wasn't really allowed to treat myself either; but when I was given some credit to use on my employee online staff shop I just had to treat myself to these (unnecessary) items.

REVIEW || AVEDA SHAMPURE SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER - USED ON FINE AND STRAIGHT BLONDE HAIR


I had absolutely no idea what Aveda was until I started working in the beauty industry back in 2017. I thought that paying £15.50 for a bottle of shampoo was absolutely insane, especially as the matching conditioner cost £17.50 - that's £33 for a couple of essential items I will need to repurchase in 3-4 month's time anyway. We don't really bat an eyelid when we pay £10 for a bottle of wine that'll last around 2 hours, so why deny ourselves a luxurious hair care item that'll last much longer and won't give us a headache the next day?

2020 || SUMMER SKINCARE WISHLIST


*The images used in this post have been taken from the Cult Beauty website, and are not my own.

I haven't bought any skincare since December 2019, can you believe it?! I have so many unused products put away in the drawers that I wanted to get through before buying new products to try, but I can't help but create a wishlist of a few products I am dying to try! To be honest with you all, I have never tried any of these brands other than a couple of body products from Caudalie which I really liked. I'm hoping that my family members will come across this post and decide to treat me to something nice 😂
