Our Desert Island Makeup Pick
Did you ever get the question, ''What beauty product would you take if you were stranded on a desert island?'' We've got a great one, in case you're worried about what the coconuts and parrots think of you.
Pixi Succulent Lip Twin
Alright, we know it's a silly question, but it's one we get here all the time. And really, it means something else. Like, ''If you're out hiking with that really hot guy and you don't want him to know you're wearing makeup...?'' Or, ''If you're going to the gym and you don't want to look like you just woke up, which you did, and you want something to fit in that tiny pocket in your gym bag...?''
If you're going pretty much bare and you just want a little something to perk you up, we suggest Pixi's Succulent Lip Twin. Nothing takes the edge off a pale face like a little color in the cheeks and lips. Remember all those books about women living in a time where makeup was for floozies and the only way to darken your lashes subtly was to hold a candle under some metal and use the soot? (Yes, we'll be doing a historical makeup post in the near future.) Remember how those ladies pinched their cheeks and bit their lips?
Pixi has the perfect little product in the Lip Twin. It's a tube of gloss/lip balm with a lip and cheek tint in the cap. It's enough to give you a glow but not enough to overwhelm your face with color. It's also great for you. It's got aloe vera, lavender, jojoba oil, vitamin E and shea butter. It comes in four colors including Nude Lily, Coral Camillia, Pink Peony and Poppy Red. The Poppy Red is a lot brighter than the others and will work best on darker skin tones. We're hoping they come out with a plum version as well.
Pixi Succulent Lip Twin retails for $18 and is available at pixibeauty.com.
