Pixi pixi pixi... oh how you have stolen my heart. Recently I did a little Pixi haul and I'm obsessed with trying new things from this brand. So #sorrynotsorry but I'm reviewing yet another product from this heavenly brand.
This week I've decided to share my thoughts the Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist. This beauty retails for £16, so as far as fixing sprays go, it's definitely on the more pricey side. But is it worth it?
This particular mist is infused with rose water and green tea in order to "protect and balance skin for a fresh face". I can tell you first hand, this product is definitely a refreshing touch to your face. Especially if you're like me and are always tired in the morning when applying your makeup and need a little waking up.
The instructions of this product are to apply after your makeup to set it. And it also advises to hold 15cm away from your face before spraying. I would definitely recommend this tip too, along with the fact that A LITTLE GOES A VERY LONG WAY with this spray. I remember the first time I used this product it was actually a #fail on my behalf. I assumed I'd need a lot of the product in order to properly set my makeup. I well and truly soaked my face, which meant my makeup ran all down my face... and then set. But ever since spraying only a little bit on my face, I never had that trouble again and the mist has been rather successful.
But from that experience I can tell you that once this is sprayed on your face, your makeup does not budge. From what I can see, it mattifies your face, taking away shine and stickiness that your foundation might leave you. But the amazing thing is that it doesn't leave your face feeling dry at all, in fact it's rather hydrating. And I can't even tell you how good this product smells!
As far as results go, this definitely keeps your makeup on for a fair while. Since this is the first makeup fixing spray I've ever tried, I personally have nothing else to compare it to. But I've read reviews saying that people have tried other brands that are cheaper, but have given longer lasting results.
But for me, the "WOW" factor is really all about the finish it gives your makeup. I honestly can't complete my makeup look without this now, because it just feels wrong not to. It well and truly sets your face, and the best part is, you only need a little bit to finish the look.
Overall I am very happy with this product. I think I may still try other fixing sprays, just to see how they compare. But I have already repurchased it, so you know I think it's worth the money. I would rate this product a 8/10, and have already been recommending it to people. Have you ever tried this product? If so let me know in the comments,
