Pixi Orchid Petal 4

Pixi Orchid Petal Tinted Brilliance Balm ($14) perhaps a bit of an easier way to create that Radiant Orchid Pantone Color of the Year look. This is for the girl’s and guy’s a little scared of louder shades like Sephora’s Pantone Radiant Rush Matte Lipstick.

Orchid Petal is a softer pink shade but it has a hint of subtle orchid to it. It’s a very natural color, true to lip pigment shade and might just prove an MLBB (my lips but better) look for you!

Take a peek!

Introduced for Spring 2012, Pixi Tinted Brilliance Balm is a chubby lip balm pencil. These were originally $16 but have since been lowered to a $14 price which makes them quite competitive to Clinique Chubby Balm Pencils.

Pixi’s formula is nicely moisturizing with a shiny sheen finish that adds a touch of natural color to lips. They glide easily across lips with a formula that acts as a glossy pencil and balm all in one. This has a minty taste that isn’t too strong and wears on me for around three hours. The pencil swivels up so no sharpener is needed for application.

Orchid Petal actually looks like a natural pink on my lips due to the rose pigment of my lips but if you have paler lips you’ll find it has a hint of lighter purple to it which kinda makes it an easier way to embrace the Radiant Orchid without going full on with the shade.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Neat! I’ve been passing by these at Target. May just have to pick up this shade. Very pretty! It’s hard for me to justify spending even a dollar more on lip products when I have an entire drawer delicated to them that’s overflowing lol. Oh well! What’s a girl to do?

    What the heck is with all the ads on here? It takes ages (feels like) to load the page and the flashing is giving me a seizure. Can`t stand it, you lost yourself a reader…
