Pixi Sample Box February 2016

i was so happy to finally have a jumping lesson in the outdoor arena! it's been months since we've been able to jump outside, so it was bliss. i didn't get to do as much as i wanted because i had one of my neurological spells yesterday, and it was still lingering on today. but i figured that discretion was probably the better part of valor... live to jump another day :D

excited to be sharing the February Pixi blogger sample box with you guys! this one had a moisturizer and two lip products... as always, testing them out was so fun :)

here's the box itself!

first up, lets check out the moisturizer!

Glowtion Day Dew ($22) is part of Pixi's Skintreats line, it's a moisturizer for the face that gives you an amazing glow. it's so glowy that you can even use it as a highlighter! it's glides over the skin and absorbs quickly. i love it as a day cream, but it's not heavy enough for me to use a night cream. i was a bit put off by just how much gleam you get when using it as a moisturizer... but i find myself grabbing for it quite a bit. it in addition to having a strong pink-toned sheen, it has TINY pieces of glitter. it's not noticeable on the face, but i know some people hate glitter in face products! the scent is very herbal, and dissipates quickly leaving no smell. i really wish it had some sunscreen in it, though!

here's a swatch of Glowtion Day Dew... with a sneaky peek of the next product :D

the lip products are Mattelustre Lipstick in Raspberry Blush ($12) and Lip Contour Liner in Invisible Smudge-Stopper ($12).

Mattelustre Lipstick in Raspberry Blush is a red cream with a pretty shiny finish... i still don't quite understand the Mattelustre name. it can be a little patchy in application, but a few swipes should even it out! Lip Contour Liner in Invisible Smudge-Stopper is a completely clear lipliner that you can use with any lipstick to keep it from moving outside your lip line! if you go over it with lipstick it might sheer your lipstick out a little bit, so be aware of that in your application.

here's the two products on my lips!

you can find Pixi products at Target stores,, and!! 

getting my taxes done with Mr. Pawlish tomorrow... hope you guys have something way more fun to do! Ria :)
