I had always been attracted to the lovely mint-colored lipstick tubes from Pixi and on a recent shopping spree, I decided to try these out. So, I bought a few shades from the Pixi Mattelustre lipsticks. Today, I am reviewing the shade “Coral Red” for you all. Read on to find out more.
Full-coverage, adjustable-finish lipstick for long lasting, vivid lip color with a plumping effect. The ultimate in multi-tasking lip enhancement, this demi-matte lipstick conditions, plumps and protects lips while giving long lasting, intense colour. Added peptides, hyaluronic acid, and vitamins C and E help to create fuller, smoother-looking lips.
My Experience with Pixi Coral Red Mattelustre Lipstick:
Packaging: This lipstick comes in a cute mint-colored plastic tube. There is a colored band at the bottom which matches the shade of the lipstick. A sticker on the bottom carries the name of the lipstick.
The packaging is very simple and there is no other print on the tube except a very classy looking “pixi” in light mint color.
Shade/Pigmentation: “Coral Red” as expected, is a very pretty orange-red shade. This is a lovely cheery shade that instantly brightens up the face.
The pigmentation of the lipstick is good. While one swipe does cover the lips, two swipes give a better opaque finish. Layering does not lead to any clumping. This is one of those lipsticks which does not deliver a full on opaque bright color. Instead, it is slightly on the sheer side.
Texture/Finish/Lasting Power: The texture of the lipstick is creamy and applies pretty well on the lips. The finish is not exactly matte. I would call it semi-matte as it has some sheen to it. I did not notice any plumping effect as advertised.
The lipstick does not feel drying on the lips. It is quite lightweight and actually feels like a balm. My lips feel soft and supple throughout the time that the lipstick wears.
The staying power is pretty good too and the lipstick lasts around 5-6 hours with light meals. This particular shade doesn’t leave any stain behind.
Pros of Pixi Coral Red Mattelustre Lipstick:
- Lovely orange-red shade.
- Decent pigmentation.
- Semi-matte finish.
- Good staying power – around 5-6 hours.
- Does not feel drying.
- Classy packaging.
Cons of Pixi Coral Red Mattelustre Lipstick:
- Slightly expensive compared to drugstore lipsticks.
- Some of you might not like the pigmentation which leans towards sheer.
- No visible plumping effect.
Would I Repurchase Pixi Coral Red Mattelustre Lipstick?
If a mauve matte lipstick at an affordable price is what you are looking for, you can try it out. I did not like the shade or the formula, and hence will not repurchase.
