1) Pixi Mattelustre Lippies Group Shot

As the beauty purveyor of Seek The Uniq, it has been a pleasure carrying some of the best finds from Glamourbox with our seekers.  Admittedly, I am more of a skincare junkie, but when I got my hands on Pixi’s Mattelustre lippies – I was totally smitten!

I have always opted for a more minimal approach to makeup and lipstick is one of my few necessities. I love how the Mattelustre line is the perfect combination of a vivid matte color, while still giving moisture and protection. I normally top off my lipstick with gloss, but for once I didn’t have to. I’m also very happy that there is a great selection of nudes to choose from.

Here are the steps I took to maximize the effect of my Mattelustre lippie:

I started off by prepping my lips with Pixi’s Nourishing Lip Polish. This helped to slough off any dry skin and instantly plump up my lips.

I then followed with a light dusting of Pixi’s Colour Correcting Powder Foundation (in Cream), to make the color last longer and come out even deeper.

I then applied two coats of my personal favorite shade, Rose Naturelle, and voila I was done! Perfect lip color, that lasted for hours.

*To balance my look, I just used Pixi Glow Tonic & Glowtion Day Dew Skincare (I rarely use foundation), Pixi Correction Concentrate to cover up blemishes, and Eye Of Horus Ultimate Brow Define & mascara from Dual Brow Perfect.  

They say you shouldn’t play favorites, and in my job it is hard to do so.  But shh Pixi’s Mattelustre line is definitely one of mine!
