Summer Beauty is all about a natural and effortless look and these Sheer Cheek Gels and GelTint Glosses by Pixi Beauty accomplish that beautifully! They provide a pretty, beachy look in just 2 minutes and last all day!

Pixi Sheer Cheek Gels ($14) are a sheer translucent gel stain that imparts a natural sunkissed flush. The texture is a watery gel that cools and blends beautifully. Once absorbed, the product dries down leaving behind a glowy healthy burst of color. It can be used alone or under a powder blush for more intensity. Make no mistake, this is a STAIN not a blush so apply with a light hand!

There are 3 colors available. The colors look very dark in the tube but sheer out considerably when applied so don’t be scared!

  • Natural is a soft, sheer rose
  • Rosy is a bright pinky red
  • Flush the most pigmented, is a vivid sheer red

Flush is very similar to the first Benetint Cheek Stain from Benefit and I wore it forever, I even finished it! It just looks so natural, youthful and glowy! I find cream and gel blushes look better on those of us with older skin because they don’t cake or settle into lines and they last longer than the Kardashian frenzy.

Wearing Flush

Keeping with the summery effortless, natural look, the Pixi GelTint & Silk Gloss ($12) has a sheer lip stain on one end with a pretty, shiny gloss on the other end. The stains don’t actually “dry down” like most and they don’t sting–a sure sign of drying alcohol in the formula. Rather, they feel nice on the lips and of course last throughout the day–after all, they are a stain. The glosses provide hydration and just the right amount of shine. They can be worn separately, but I like them best together because I always like a bit of shine for my thin lips.

There are 3 shades available:

I love the vibrant BerryTint & Sweet Gloss–it’s the ideal fun summer lip! PinkTint and Pretty Gloss is a great neutral mauve pink for every day and BeachTint and Fresh Gloss is a great summer night time look!

    So many choices for the skin and lips but I would only dare to use the natural colors. If I am going out I might dare to try beach tint or fresh gloss.

  2. These are some great products and they don’t look harsh or dramatic. They look very natural.

  3. Allison Lancaster says

    I love all of these products on you! The lip glosses are amazing! I have just started using blush lately and I love these colors- they aren’t too ‘much’

  4. Robin Rue says

    I love the Sweet Gloss. I love that they are not super bright and look really natural.

  5. Cassie Liz says

    I’m a huge blush fan – in fact, it is probably my most favourite make up item and I wear it religiously. I haven’t tried any other than powder though so I’m keen to give these a go

  6. Amber Nelson says

    I have never tried pixi, but I have heard a lot about it. I love trying new products so I would give pixi a try!

  7. These colors are nice and subtle. Perfect for summer with the flowery colors. Didn’t know they had those color sticks for the cheeks.

  8. I am loving both these products for summer! The cheek gels are really pretty.

  9. I definitely prefer tings over heavy make up products during the summer. These are lovely picks and from a brand that I like as well. Pixi is definitely a good choice!

  10. I like tints in the summer and think Pixi has some great colors! I would definitely give it a try!

  11. I’ve got the cheek stains and I like them especially when I’m going to be running around with my grandkids or going out to the lake for the day. I do have to start small with these and build up if needed so that clown cheeks aren’t visible.

  12. Phyrra Nyx says

    Rosy looks so pretty!

  13. Allison @neversaydiebeauty says

    Beach Tint & Fresh Gloss for me!

  14. I love Pixi makeup! These are all really great colors. Nothing to bold or bright.

  15. Ayana Pitterson says

    Very summery! Beautiful shades. I wonder if these would work well with African American complexions. I want to try them out as I do love the summery and natural vibe.


    Very pretty! I remember when stains first came out, I used one that was for cheeks and/or lips. I loved it, except when I accidentally put too much on. Then it was wearing me. But it always looked nice.

  17. Pink Tint and Pretty Gloss is my definite fave!

  18. Maybe it’s just me, but those blushes all look the same on my cheeks, unless I am really caking them on. Love the effortless look though!

  19. Krystel Seijo says

    Looks fantastic! I don’t wear make up at al but I can appreciate it a good look and these pinks are awesome.

  20. My daughter and I love this brand because they have amazing products! I think the tings are really lovely!

  21. Lovely! My favorite here is the pink tint + pretty gloss combo. So cute! I’ve heard of the brand but have yet to purchase – maybe I will now 😀

  22. I love the colors! 🙂 I truly love love make up and these colors are impeccable !:)

  23. I love all of these colors they are absolutely beautiful. I am going to look for them for the upcoming school year.

  24. Krystle Cook says

    I have never used a beauty tint before. These products look like they would definitely be worth a try.
