Okay guys, here we go with another lovely bronzing product! Again, I’ll admit, I have a slight obsession with looking bronzy and “healthy” – as in not dead. Pixi Sheer Cheek Gel in Sun-Kissed helps me achieve this by giving me natural, glowing cheeks!
Pixi Sheer Cheek Gel is a sheer, translucent wash of colour for cheeks and face. It’s oil-free, fragrance-free and hypoallergenic according to Pixi, and gives you a healthy pop of colour. Pixi Sheer Cheek Gel comes in 5 gorgeous shades: Natural (soft, warm pink), Sun-Kissed (Bronze – pictured), Rosy (Berry-rose), Flushed (Fresh Red) and Peachy (Coral Gold) all of which provide hydrating and moisturizing colour.
I’m a big fan of cheek colour in liquid, gel and cream forms. I find it looks a lot more natural on skin, especially if you apply it before foundation or powder. It can give a “lit-from-within” glow that you can’t find from very many powder products. I also tend to have dry skin on my cheeks so the hydration I get from these products makes my skin look much more youthful and dewy. As you can see, Sun-Kissed is a reddish-bronze. It’s not the type of colour I would recommend for an all over bronzer. It’s definitely more of a Sun-Kissed “flush” of colour you would naturally see on your cheeks on a hot summer day (minus the sweat).
It sheers out to a really pretty flush of tan that wears all day. It’s definitely not a staining product but the colour last a long time, especially if you set it with a setting powder or spray. I like to layer this all over my cheek bones and finish with a bright pop of pink directly on the apples. It gives a really fresh and really natural looking flush. PS – This tube will last forever!
I would highly recommend this product if you’re after a natural looking blush. I’ve yet to try any of their other shades but I’ve tested them out in store and they all have the same gorgeous translucent effect on skin which will never leave you looking fake or overly made up. If you’re like me and love any bronzer product, give this one a try!
