I will admit that $18 is a lot to spend on a lip gloss. That's why it took me awhile to try it. However I have several friends who swear by this stuff, so one day I decided to pick some up.
Wow. This stuff is great.
This is a water-based lip stain that goes on light and stays on all day. That's really hard to find. Usually products that last are thick and even uncomfortable. This feels light and smooth, just like a lip gloss. However unlike most lip gloss this doesn't fade or melt away. It stays and stays.
Colors available are purity, blush, love and happiness. They are all different shades of pink really. I like every shade. The tip is kind of like a marker or a sponge. My friend keeps hers upside-down because she says the tip can dry out otherwise. I haven't done that, and mine has been just fine so far.
If you need a mess-free, non-cakey, light as a feather lip stain, Pixie is worth the money.
