PIXI sheer cheek gel - really natural blush!



It seems I'm on a never ending quest to find the best, natural blush and this product makes me question whether I've found it or not! The shade of this Pixi Sheer Cheek Gel is absolutely gorgeous, and you get a craaazyy amount of product in this. You hardly use any either, a little goes a long way!

So, the gel isn't very pigmented, however it's really buildable which I think is great - if it was more pigmented I think it'd be really difficult to work with and yeah. You only need the smallest amount, a little smaller than a pea, and I just dot it roughly where I'd like it to go then find myself kind of sweeping/pressing/dabbing it into place. It has a tendency to go quite uneven, but it's really easy to go back over with a little more gel. Howeveeerr, it could be a recipe for disaster if you use too much without allowing it to try. It can get sticky towards the end which means it can pull your foundation up causing it to all roll up and come off, so you really need to work quick with this.
To get rid of any lines I have, I just grab the brush I applied my foundation with and buff it in gently

As you can see, it creates a really nice, natural, sheer finish that looks lovely. I think this would be a great product for those who don't wear foundation as much and just grab some blush as it looks so much more natural than cream and powder blushes which tend to sit on the skin, rather than sink in like this gel.

Products I'm wearing: Clinique Even Better Foundation
Pixi Sheer Cheek Gel, L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara
Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Alarm, MUA Brow Kit

  1. Hi Hayley!

    Dropping by to say hi after seeing your link on Northern Beauty's Blog Hop :) I must say I LOVE YOUR SKIN. It's beautiful and so very flawless. I feel so jealous because it's quite impossible to have such skin in Singapore where it's so hot and humid :(

    Do check out my blog :) I've followed you on GFC :)

    xx, Sam

  6. That shade looks lovely on you. I've never tried a gel before but the texture sounds nice so might have to give it a go. :)

  7. A lot of us who are under constant pressure tend to eat too much and
    do not take good care of their bodies. Even if your small business doesn't have some sort of refrigerator (a rarity today) you can choose vegetable and fruit that do not even require refrigeration. ' Being physically active can promote good mental health and help you to
    manage stress, anxiety and depression.

  8. For normal delivery the mother should be fit to cope with the delivery.
    What you should do is to focus or target a particular group of muscle for once or even twice a week.
    Just like with the above diet tips, you want to
    make sure that each fitness tip you incorporate into your routine is doable.

  9. This kind of language schools are aimed to keep your children learning about new languages as well as cultures.
    For example, we often do some driving trains to encourage the students
    to speak a few numbers in turn. The videos relax, they make people smile and as they say, laughter is the best medicine.

  10. Just go through the internet and discover the best source to get
    all these humorous images. If you have a bad dog, you can submit your story online on this submission
    form on baddogs. While wasting your time watching something marginally funny may actually frustrate you, watching truly hilarious movies and shows is an easy way to get laughter into
    your life whenever you need it.
