I’ve been leaning more and more toward wearing moisturizing, balmy lip products recently. Not only am I recovering from an extra dry winter season, but I’ve also just gotten over a cold that left my lips really chapped from mouth-breathing. Usually, wearing hydrating lipsticks means I sacrifice long lasting color as the finish wears off quickly. But that’s not the case with the new Pixi Naturellelips!
These brand new lipsticks from Pixi moisturize, seal in hydration and offer a beautiful wash of color. Their formula includes Sunflower Oil, Vitamin E and Jojoba Seed Oil for smooth application and a cushy feel. They come in these cardboard tubes which I’m not particularly a fan of— they seem like they can get smushed at the bottom of a bag. But other than that, I’m a big fan of these lipsticks.

Row 3: Nectar / Primrose
The Naturellelips start out on the sheer side, but can be built up for more of a punch. Even the brighter shades are still incredibly wearable and flattering, staying slightly muted. These are so easy to apply, and the formula is forgiving. You can truly swipe, mush your lips together and go.
The feeling of these lipsticks are a bit unique in that despite being balmy and moisturizing, they’re stiffer than what you might imagine. I actually like this because since it’s not as slick, it lasts longer in terms of color. It’s also not slipping out of my lip lines and also transfers less than a wetter product.
Above you can see how the color wore throughout the day. Raspberry is admittedly the most pigmented shade in the collection, and I was really pleased with how it lasted through a meal. It left a stained look behind that is incredibly even. There was no feathering at all, and has an overall blotted appearance. Throughout the day, my lips stayed super comfortable and hydrated, even after the product “dried down.” I never felt like I needed to go in for an extra layer of moisture.
Overall, I’m really hyped about this new line from Pixi! I hope they expand it beyond these six original shades, but at least we have enough for a range of looks. I’d love to see more mauve and berry tones.
You can find the Pixi Naturellelips on the brand’s website for $12.
