Company’s Description

Exquisite duo of lip balm and lip & cheek crème for a burst of fresh colour and long-lasting nourishment. Give yourself a lip-loving treat with this duo lip nourisher. The natural oils and extracts condition and protect your lips – all while adding a quick tint of face-awakening colour with our unique lip & cheek crème (conveniently located in cap). In the tube: Multi-purpose lip balm to soothe & heal dry lips. In the cap: Solid lip & cheek crème for when you need a quick pick-me-up of concentrated colour.

Pixi’s Succulent Lip Twins are duo-purpose products that function as both lip colors and cheek colors. This product comes in five (5) different shades. This review is for the shade Poppy Red–a deep strawberry red shade.


Packaging: 8.75/10

This product comes with two parts: a plastic squeeze tube that contains the lip balm and a screw-on top with the lip and cheek color on the end.

Quality: 9.5/10

The lip and cheek tint has a cream-to-powder formula. It has great pigmentation and can applied in a barely-there, sheer manner or built up for a much stronger red color. The color stays strong for about five (5) to six (6) hours before slight fading. This can also be applied to the lips, but also doesn’t actively dry out the lips. It won’t bring any moisture to the skin and leaves a slightly powdery finish. The color gives a very pretty “bitten” look.

The lip balm, when it first comes out of the tube, consists of a clear oily-type product plus red pigment. But once blended together, this balm gives your lips a sheer tint of strawberry color. The formula locks in moisture and leaves a slightly glossy finish. You can also apply this on top of the lip and cheek tint, which gives you a stronger red color. The balm definitely stains the lips, leaving a good showing of color for three (3) to four (4) hours, gradually fading afterwards.

Ease of Use: 9/10

You can apply the lip and cheek tint straight from the “cap” or use your fingers to apply it to the skin. The cream-to-powder formula needs blending to get an even finish. You’ll need to apply the lip balm with your fingers since there’s no applicator.

Price: 9/10

For $18.00 you get 0.42 ounces (12 grams) of lip balm and 0.07 ounces (2 grams) of lip and cheek tint. This is an expected amount of product for the price.

    Hm…seems a little gimmicky to me, but then again, I can’t argue if it works!
