Pixi cosmetics are distributed from London, and getting harder to find in the US. Gloss.com used to carry them, but that website has closed; the only place I could find Pixi lip lacquer when looking for a price was www.apothecaryandco.com. I'm sure they are also available on eBay, and a few other websites.

The Pixi line is aimed at younger women, and is a fun and playful line. The lip gloss or lacquer comes in about 10 colors, all with women's names that are one syllable said twice, like Bebe and Dede and Fifi and Gigi. The shade I own is Gigi. It is definitely a long-lasting lip lacquer; in fact, it's the longest lasting I've found. It has a lovely mauve color, and a great high shine. It is a little thick and tacky-feeling going on, though. It doesn't plump your lips, nor does it do much in the line of moisturizing.

I'm disappointed in the product because, first, I think $32 is ridiculous for a lipgloss; you can buy a more moisturizing gloss at Bath and Body Works for $6, and while it might not stay on as long as the Pixi product, you can afford to touch it up. The product is not a bad one, it's just not worth the price, in my opinion. I wouldn't recommend it unless you just inherited your long-lost great-aunt's fortune or won the lottery, and have money to burn. I'm very sorry I bought it instead of 6 different shades from another line.
