Pixi Succulent Lip Twin in Coral Camellia

I’ve been talking about Pixi quite a bit lately. While I was very impressed with their eye shadow and eyeliner, I’m approaching each product review with a fresh perspective.

This brand is higher quality than makeup you’d typically find at the drug store, but you can usually pick it up for a good price at Target.

Today, I’m trying the Pixi Succulent Lip Twin in Coral Camellia.

The twin comes with a solid color and a gloss.

The solid can be used on both your cheeks and your lips. The gloss is just for your lips.

Both look pretty pigmented and opaque, especially the gloss.

A note: You may remember from yesterday that I didn’t like the scent of the Pixi Lumi Lux Radiance Powder. The Succulent Lip Twin has a similar problem. The lip gloss smells like a waxy crayon, much like how some lipsticks smell. I think Pixi needs to work on the scents of their products.

The Final Product

There are good and not-so-good things about the Pixi Succulent Lip Twin. While it does a good job with the solid stick in adding color to lips and cheeks, the lip gloss in the tube isn’t nearly as good. For these reasons, I give it a…

  1. I like the concept of the product and the packaging is kinda cute too but the gloss does look disappointing when applied. Bummer!

  2. I think the concept is awesome, I was hoping for a fresher color though.

  3. Hi there, I just discovered your blog today :) I have this in Coral Camellia as well and I agree that I totally dislike the scent of the product! Otherwise, I love the pretty tint it leaves on my cheek using the solid and lovely color on my lips using the gloss :)

  4. I have Pixi eyeliner and it is quite good. I don’t know much about this trade. I will search for the other pixi products because I remember the eyeliner was very cheap also.

    Thank you,

  5. I agree with Gio – I love the packaging – its very cool. Going to try the eyeliner.
