Pixi as a brand are totally nailing their social media campaign as everyone is talking about their products both in their native US and here in the UK. Since their Pixi Glow Tonic reached cult status, they’ve extended their skincare collection to include many more products under the ‘Glow’ umbrella including Glow Tonic to Go, Glow Peel Pads, Glow Mud Mask, Overnight Glow Serum and the Glow Mist.
The Pixi Glow Mist is part of the Pixi #MultiMisting Facial Mist Collection which consists of four different facial mists; Pixi Vitamin Wakeup Mist, Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist, Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist and Pixi Glow Mist, and there’s even a newer addition – the Pixi Sun Mist. The ideal of the #MultiMisting Collection is that you can use the four mists at differing points throughout the day with and without makeup, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed putting the main four mists through their paces so I could report back…
Pixi Vitamin Wakeup Mist £16 – Invigorate & Revive
“Boosting Treatment Toner mist gives a revitalized awakened effect to complexion. The orange blossom water base is blended with skin-loving citrus fruit extracts, lavendar, and arginine. Before moisturizer: strengthens & tones. After makeup: adds hydration & A protective veil. Anytime: cools, refreshes, & wakes up skin.”
The Pixi Vitamin Wakeup Mist needs to be shaken before use and misted over the face and neck with eyes closed in both the am and pm. I read a review claiming that this mist is ideal for when travelling as it helps to revitalise the skin especially when flying by plane as the cabin can play havoc on your skin. The Vitamin Wakeup Mist has the most incredible zesty scent which makes the mist even more effective at reviving the complexion. I find this mist to be really pleasant to use but I don’t feel it’s as much as must have as the other three mists which I will definitely repurchase. If you don’t have dry skin, this mist might be better suited for you than the Milky Mist as this is a little lighter in comparison but it does still impart a boost of hydration.
Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist £18 – Hydrate & Soothe
“This featherlight mist provides an instant surge of hydration with hyaluronic acid to plump skin. A blend of black oat, provitamin A, and linoleic acid makes this rejuvenator the perfect first layer of moisture before serums or makeup. Suits all skin types and is not tested on animals.“
This mist was the one I was particularly intrigued by as I have dry and dehydrated skin and I’ve read some really positive reviews. I really can’t stop using this mist as I find it so effective for a moisture hit at any time of the day. Even though the mist is while in colour within the bottle, it doesn’t leave a white cast, any stickiness or effect my makeup but my favourite way to use this mist is after using my makeup primer before I apply my foundation as it creates a more luminous finish for my foundation.
I’ve never used a facial mist as hydrating as the Milky Mist as it leaves my skin feeling as if I’ve just used an hydrating face mask. If I had to recommend just one mist, it would have to be this one as it’s made such a massive improvement to the way my makeup applies and looks and I’ve already purchased a backup whilst it was on offer as I wouldn’t want to be without it within my beauty routine. I love, love, love it.
Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist £16 – Set & Hydrate
“Prolongs makeup wear and keeps it from moving, melting, and settling into fine lines or pores. The rose water and green tea infused formula comforts, protects and balances skin for a fresh face. Extends and refreshes makeup, hydrates and balances, and sets makeup adds a soft-focus finish.“
I religiously use a makeup setting spray everytime I wear makeup as I always notice that the quality of my makeup is prolonged. Some makeup setting sprays I’ve used have made my makeup last longer, but the colours of my blush and eye makeup have faded a little so I prefer to use a setting spray which will improve the longevity of makeup as well as keeping the colours as vivid was they were when first applied. The Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist is exactly that.. it helps to fix my makeup in place whilst also keeping my blush and eye makeup true to colour during wear.
Everyone loves the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray but I feel like the only person that didn’t as I found that it really stung my skin due to the very high alcohol content and the alcohol then dried my skin. I don’t experience any stinging or burning when using this Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist, and I’d say it was more of a gentle skincare product whilst also keeping my makeup in place too. As always I like to keep it real here on my blog, I really don’t like the scent of this mist as I personally dislike rose scents but I can overcome the scent as it’s such an effective setting spray and luckily for me, the rose scent dissipates within a couple of minutes.
Pixi Glow Mist £16 – Glow & Nourish
“Gives a glowing, luminous and smooth complexion and is enriched with 13 natural oils plus propolis, aloe vera and fruit extracts. Hydrates, protects and nourishes whilst setting makeup, adding a dewy finish and protecting the skin. Refreshes makeup, hydrates and adds glow, and is suits all skin types.“
The Pixi Glow Mist has a bi-phase formula due to the 13 natural oils so it needs to be thoroughly shaken before use to ensure the oils are thoroughly blended. I love using this mist before, during and after makeup application and just like the Milky Mist, it can be misted over the top of makeup without ruining or smudging the makeup underneath due to how light and even the atomiser is on the bottle (all four Mists have the same great atomiser). I didn’t love the Glow Tonic so I wasn’t sure I’d love the Glow Mist but it’s amazing, and the ‘glow’ in the name is very apt as it really does impart a noticeable glow to the skin even if I’m not wearing makeup. The mist has a refreshing citrus scent which I find to be quite uplifting especially in the mornings when I’m struggling to keep my eyes open due to late night YouTube binges.
I have been using this particular mist on my BeautyBlender prior to blending my foundation as I find it really does help to intensify the glow whilst also keeping my skin hydrated, and my dry patches looking minimised. I rarely use foundation brushes now as I find they always made my foundation cling to dry patches but by using my BeautyBlender with the Pixi Glow Mist, the patches look a lot less noticeable and my skin just looks better. Another great use for this mist is as a finisher after I’ve applied my powder as it helps to stop my skin from looking over powdered or cakey. It’s a real multi-tasker and a product I’d recommend for any skin type.
I would love to know if you’ve tried any of the Pixi #MultiMisting Facial Mist Collection?
