I had a chance to go to a Target store recently (I don’t have one near where I live) and I thought I would try out Pixi. Pixi is a British brand, and as far as I know, the only place to buy it in Canada is at Target. I had heard really good reviews of their sheer cheek gels.
I got Natural, Rosey, and Flushed. There is also a fourth colour, Peachy, but it looked very light and I thought it might not show up much on me. The cheek gels are oil free, fragrance free, and hypoallergenic.
Natural is described as “soft warm pink”. This is the most opaque of the three I got and is a natural peachy pink. Rosey is described as “perfect berry-rose”. Flushed is the darkest and is described as “fresh red”. Its similar to Benefit’s Benetint rose-tinted cheek stain and was the one I liked the best.
I am a huge fan of Benefit’s Benetint. I can’t say I like these quite as much. They are more sheer and feel a little bit sticky on the skin. Rosey didn’t provide enough colour for me, but I’ve worn Flushed quite a bit.
The plastic tube packaging makes them awesome for traveling though! I am always afraid my Benetint will leak or get broken, so the Pixi sheer cheek gel is a good alternative.
The sheer cheek gels retail for $18 CAD.
