Review : PIXY Tinted Moisturizing Lotion

Friday, September 16, 2011

A week ago, I went grocery shopping at this new place at Kelapa Gading called Lotte Mart. I'm surprised that they have a PIXY counter and immediately went there to "browse". I ended up buying a two way cake (powder foundation), a tinted moisturizer and two nail polishes. Here is the review on the tinted moisturizer.

PIXY Tinted Moisturizing Lotion

Moisturizer functioned as transparent light foundation. Helps to moisten skin, making powder 
stick longer and skin looks evenly soft.

Ingredients

How I Use It
I squeeze a 2-cm diameter amount of product onto the back of my hand. Depending on my mood that day, I will either use my fingers (looks natural), a stippling brush (looks more polished and neat) or a foundation brush (looks more flawless).

What I Like About It
  • It's available at most PIXY counters at the department store and/or some supermarket in Jakarta
  • It's reasonably priced, retailing at Rp 25,000 (USD 3) (prices may vary)
  • The bottle is just made at an adorable size with a flip cap on top
  • There are some ingredients (talc) that are common allergens to some individuals, so be sure to check the list as always
  •  The texture is on the runnier side, making blending easy
  • It feels lightweight on my face, as if wearing just a regular lotion
  • It doesn't exaggerate my dry patches 
  • It only lasts for 4 hours on my face, which is normal for a tinted moisturizer
  • The coverage is in between sheer and medium. It is able to cover up SOME of my acne scars, but not able to cover my dark spots
  • There isn't a strong scent
What I Hate About It
  • It only comes in 1 shade
  • It's only good for people with normal to dry skin, since it does make my T-zone oily throughout the day (I have combination skin)
Swatch

Summary
I would recommend this to :
  • Someone who didn't have much to cover since the coverage isn't a full coverage
  • Someone who is looking for a product to even out their skin tone, instead of covering them up
  • Someone who has normal to dry skin and wanted a product that is lighter than a foundation
  • Someone who has a light skin tone

  2. I've never heard of this brand, but the description of the product sounds nice. Tinted moisturizers and BB creams all the rage now with more and more companies (like Liz Earle and Boots 17) coming out with them.

  3. Lina, lately I have been mixing my moisturizer with my foundation for a tinted moisturizer. I gave this a try and it's quite good. It's okay just finish what you have to ^^

    Suki, it's a local brand here in Jakarta. I've been loving tinted moisturizer since junior high. They're great for everyday use. ^^
