Review: Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in Pixi Pink

I have mentioned this Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in Pixi Pink quite a few times on my blog so far and I think a proper full review for it is long overdue. It doesn’t look like it but I have been using this rather consistently since my haul in May when Pixi had an online sale. It retails regularly for GBP 8, but I had a 20% off, and VAT is taken off for non-UK purchases.

Claims on Website:
Awaken lips with this super-nourishing balm. The unique formula is rich but lightweight and gives a gorgeous wash of colour to lips – it’s the perfect pick-me-up anytime! Packed full of beneficial ingredients, this balm soothes lips immediately & nourishes them long term.

Just like a regular plastic lip balm tube; very light. Each balm has a different colour cap that represents the shade inside. The balm itself has a flat top instead of the usual slanted cut. The cap feels a little loose on mine but it does stay shut despite being thrown around in my bag.

The balm feels very creamy but it does not have a lot of slip. I find its consistency quite heavy; it’s quite hard to explain – it’s not waxy or oily, more of a heavier in a creamy way. Maybelline Baby Lips feels a lot more lightweight and has more slip; EOS Lip Balm feels lighter but waxier. I do feel it on my lips, but I find it very comfortable and very moisturising.

The pigmentation is incredible! Full colour with a single application, and can easily be build to full opacity. Color does last fairly long at around two to three hours without eating or drinking. I did have to reapply throughout the day, but I didn’t need a mirror, lip brush and liner like I would with my red lipstick!

If you have seen my Lipstick Addict tag, you’ll know that this is my favourite tinted lip balm at the moment. Highly recommended!
