Pixi Mists: Hydrating Milky Mist, Makeup Fixing Mist, Vitamin Wakeup Mist and Glow Mist Review

Tuesday, March 28, 2017

Sponsored: Last week, Pixi Beauty sent me their new collection of facial mists. I was very excited to receive these, because I was very impressed with their Glow Mist. Below are my thoughts on each.


Despite the different colors, ALL OF THESE SPRAY ON CLEAR!


Sweet-Bittersweet-NotSweet
supersweet(run & buy it) sweet(really good,buy it) bittersweet(ok, issues)not sweet(not good,don't buy this stuff)


Pixi by Petra: Vitamin Wakeup Mist - Sweet

I love this Vitamin Wakeup Mist ($15)! It's funny, I love drinking orange juice & citrus-y things. But my skin usually detests them when it comes to skincare. When I first saw the orange color, I was like um ... I don't know about this. HaHaHa But I was pleasantly surprised! And you will be too! In a nutshell, this mist is REFRESHING & INVIGORATING! It has a VERY SOFT orange scent (nothing offensive whatsoever). When applied, my skin felt hydrated, refreshed & very soft. To me, this mist would be great for use in the AM (after your shower or bath for a perk me up) or after a workout. It's uplifting to the senses. It perks you up. It's non-sticky. It feels great to the skin. I really like it. This mist makes me feel uplifted, just like Soap & Glory's Sugar Crush. This mist provides light hydration, so you will still need a moisturizer. It doesn't replace it.


Pixi by Petra: Hydrating Milky Mist - Bittersweet

I expected a little more from this Hydrating Milky Mist ($15). The only thing milky is the color. Is it hydrating? Not so much. You mist it on your face! You initially get the hydration, it evaporates and your left with the same kind of skin you began with before spraying. LOL I have DRY SKIN, so my skin just sucked this up leaving nothing behind. It just EVAPORATED. Maybe this would work well for other skin types, but I wasn't very impressed. This mist is scentless.


Pixi by Petra: Glow Mist - Sweet

You  may remember my intial review of Glow Mist ($15) (reviewed here) and I feel the same way about it now. This mist gives your skin a very natural GLOW (not SHINE LOL). Spritz! Apply your makeup! It's very natural looking. I highly recommend this mist, for anyone that wants a healthy glow to their skin without HIGHLIGHTERS or ILLUMINATORS. It's a nice option for work or on the weekends.


Pixi by Petra: Makeup Fixing Mist - Bittersweet

I haven't dabbled with makeup fixing sprays. I should, with this New Orleans heat & humidity. This Makeup Fixing Mist ($15) is ok. Spray as far from your face as possible! This has a harder spray than I would like, so it goes on really wet. However, it dries pretty fast ... <5 minutes. So that's good. Once dried, it didn't alter the color of my foundation, blush, eyeliner or foundation. All my makeup was set in place. Lightly rubbing my face, my makeup didn't move. Briskly rubbing my face, some makeup appeared on my hands, but there was no smearing. Is this UD All Nighter? Naw But if you're looking for something lightweight, inexpensive and don't plan on touching your face a lot this may work for you. I like that it's non-sticky and non-heavy.

The only mist from pixi I have tried is the Makeup Setting one. It is my first makeup setting spray, so I cant compare it to anything. It does take away the powdery look after I am done with my face and maybe extends the weartime of my makeup a little. But I agree with you on the spritz, I hold it up and let the mist then rain down on my face, otherwise I end up spritzing it into my eyes directly. Not pleasant.

Kim, I just recently found out the drugstore by me carries the Pixi line! I'm so happy! Teehee...the little joys of life. Thanks for the honest reviews as always. Will definitely check out the Glow Mist.

I have never tried a mist. I do like the concept of the makeup fixing mist on those really hot, humid days.

Mica T said...

Shame the makeup setting spray isn't the best! I have one I got after a makeup trial at a store here and it's okay but I really don't think it works well in the extreme humidity of summer, so I'm going to keep my eye out for a new one when I get closer to returning to work and wearing makeup regularly again. It does smell lovely though! :)

Hope you are having a good start to the week :)

I am addicted to hydrating mists! It is my favourite skincare item so I always love testing new ones. Yours look lovely!

The description of the Pixi Vitamin mist reminded me of a serum I tried recently from Cicamed, I had not tried anything with vitamin c for my skin and the scent was amazing ... it was a small luxury to dab on.
Seems like the rest of the Pixi mists were downers... too bad.
Thank you for your comments ;)

Shira said...

I got these as well so I was excited to hear your thoughts. I need to read more about the ingredients because I don't like fragrance or too much alcohol on my skin but your review is promising!

Such a great review as always, beauty! I love the sound of the citrus one, it seems perfect for spring and summer and so refreshing! I don't typically reach for citrus scents, but after reading your description and how it worked for you, even though you don't typically reach for them either, I'd give it a try. I'd also try out the Glow Mist, too. Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a wonderful week ahead!

Thanks for your honest thoughts on each Kim! I think I would like the Vitamin Wakeup Mist the most but would also like to try the Glow Mist.

Julie May said...

I really like the hydrating milky missed in the glow missed, but I haven't tried the other two yet. Pixi is slowly becoming one of my favorite skincare brands. Great review pretty lady!

It's a shame that the Milky Mist and the Makeup Fixing Mist were letdowns. I was initially interested in the Milky Mist so it's disappointing to hear that it wasn't hydrating. Kim I trust you and we have similar skin types so I'm just gonna go for the Glow Mist instead. I already added to my beauty list after the first time you reviewed it :)

These Pixi spray mist look good. Your review is very helpful. This brand is really becoming popular even here in Canada. Q

Shireen L. Platt said...

Pixi is now easily available in Canada and I am loving face mists now so I'll add the Vitamin and Glow mists into my list to try!

Ashley Sue said...

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on these Kim! I haven't tried any of them but the vitamin one sounds nice! I like something refreshing in the morning!

Lyndi said...

I just got a few these products to try. So far I'm loving the glow mist! Great post xx

I feel about mists now a bit the way I used to feel about highlighters - I just don't quite know what to do with them, and there are so many out there that I am overwhelmed about where to start experimenting. The Glow Mist does sound fabulous, though!

I love face mist but I don't think I would get along with a milky mist either! Love, Valeria
