Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist ($15) is a new makeup fix mist that launched earlier this Summer that promises to prolong the wear of makeup so it doesn’t settle into fine lines and pores or melt away.
Let’s take a look!
Pixi’s on a role with facial mists lately as a few short months ago they launched their new Glow Mist and now for Summer their new Makeup Fixing Mist as well.
This is formulated with rose water and green tea to comfort and balance skin. It comes housed in the cutest little bottle as well! I just love Pixi’s packaging!
Unfortunately, I don’t really love this as a fix mist! The mist is just not fine enough for me and it ends up really hosing my face down with a good deal of product. One day I wasn’t wearing waterproof mascara when testing this and proceeded to mist my face with it and my mascara smeared. It’s such a rarity for my mascara to smear on my drier eyes but this causes some major smearing. I also feel like it doesn’t quite work well with BB Cream or foundation and it ends up smearing my coverage and making it fade. It also leaves my skin very dewy which for me is great as I have drier skin BUT…the weather is warm enough that I end up looking shiny versus dewy fresh so yeah, not good.
I also dislike the fragrance. This has a very strong mature rose fragrance (the same scent as Pixi Glow Tonic) that kinda reminds me of a perfume that a grandmother would wear. It’s actually very cloying to me and not particularly pleasant! It’s one of the things I disliked about Pixi Glow Tonic (I love that stuff, I just wish it had a better fragrance)!
The thing is, I’d probably LOVE this as a face mist to prep for skincare. It’s nice and hydrating, it leaves my skin soft and smooth, and adds a very nice light moisture to my skin which makes it more of an ideal facial mist formula versus a makeup fix mist. However, the smell prevents me from using it this way and I kinda push it towards the back of my skincare shelf and end up reaching for my other facial mists due to the fragrance.
If Pixi would reformulate it as a face mist and drop the fragrance or give it a nicer fragrance (Something fresh and floral maybe? But not this cloying rose!) I’d like it a lot more!
The new Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist is available now at Target or Target.com.
