Pixi Tinted Brilliance Balm Magic Tink Tint in Happy Thoughts Pink

Hello everyone!

Lip balms are a must for me. I use it every morning and evening because I just hate it when I have chappy lips. 

The one I am currently using is something I got from my April Glamourbox.

Pixi Tinted Brilliance Balm Magic Tink Tint in Happy Thoughts Pink

The product is 10oz and is worth Php 735.00 each.
It's the first product I got from the brand.
I actually never heard of Pixi 'til I got this one so I did a little research on their website. It's a brand from London created 10 years ago by Petra Strand. It carries makeup and skincare infused with botanical and beneficial ingredients that treat your skin as you wear them.
Interesting, right? Makes me want to try more of their stuff!

Here's the super pretty box of the product with all the info about it:

I'm not so sure if this particular one is still available. I believe this is limited edition. The other Brilliance Balms are available in 11 shades.

And additional info from the website:

What it is formulated to do:
Packed with lip-loving ingredients, this glossy gel balm protects & hydates lips instantly. After the balm wears off, lips are left tinted with a flattering, personalized hue just for you (colour & intensity depends on pH level of lips).
Twist-up crayon requires no sharpening. Secure lid after use.
Beneficial ingredients and what they do:
  • Jojoba oil is an effective natural moisturizer and environmental barrier for the skin
  • Peptides plump fine lines
  • Vitamin E nourishes and protects
  • Shea butter nourishes the skin
  • Vitamin A is a powerful antioxidant
  • Rose extract nourishes & repairs
I really like the look of the product. It's just too cute! I guess because it looks like a crayon—and you know how much I love to draw! The packaging is just a bit too big for a lip balm considering the real product is only 1/3 of the whole pencil. See photo below:

This glides softly on lips. It doesn't feel too buttery and thick which I super love. It has a subtle cooling sensation too.

What makes me love it more is the tint it leave behind when you use it. It gives me a soft pink glow on my lips that makes it look healthy and oh-so-kissable!

See? :) I think it's even pinker when you see it in person!

This lip balm instantly moisturizes my lips making it softer and smoother. I like looking at the mirror and seeing my lips looking nice even if I'm just at home. Haha! I use it when I go to the gym too! It's always good to look pretty even when you're all sweaty! :P

I'm not so sure where to buy it since it is limited edition and I dunno if the regular ones are available here in the country already. Besides, it's actually quite pricey for a lip balm anyway and there are some that moisturizes my lips the same way and is worth half of this. I guess I don't mind if the other balms don't have the tint this one gives, I still prefer wearing lipsticks or lip glosses on top of this anyway.

Well, I guess that's that.
Any thoughts on this product? Do you have any info on where to get this in the Philippines?



  1. I find that this turns a weird bright pink on me after some time. Does that mean I have acidic lips? lol.

  2. U should try the one from lipice!! The one in the long, pink tube. It's almost clear in color but changes into different shades of pink wc depends on your lip color. Practically the same as the one in this review but for only a fraction of the cost :D

  3. Tellie - I'm not so sure e. Haha! Sometimes it gives me a brighter, bolder pink pero sometimes tulad lang ng nasa picture. :P

    Anonymous- I've read so many reviews on Lipice and I think it is worth the try. Will get one when I finish my remaining balms. :)
