Pixy UV Whitening Two-Way Cake Perfect Fit in Tropical Beige Review + Swatches
Here's a review on Pixy UV Whitening Two- Way Cake Perfect Fit in Tropical Beige.
Bought From: Watsons, Podium, Ortigas
Available in: All Watsons and SM Department stores
Saving money truly has its benefits! One time, I ran out of my favorite powder foundation and I could not afford to shell out 1k+ for it just because I had to pay some bills, but since I needed one badly, I took a desperate trip to the drugstore and hoped to find something that would be a real good alternative, and found Pixy UV Whitening Two-Way Cake Perfect Fit. Originally, I wanted the Pixy powder foundation that promises 8-hour coverage or the one with a matte finish, but bummer, I had no shade match in both variants and I found it odd too that the Whitening line has the shade that fits Morenas! :p
Anyway, this powder foundation is THE BOMB! It's only P275.00, but dang, baby, this one has really good quality and coverage despite the price! I am thankful for that cash- strapped moment because it led me to this awesome find! :D
PIXY UV WHITENING TWO-WAY CAKE PERFECT FIT IN TROPICAL BEIGE IN DETAIL
This powder promises to protect skin with SPF 15 and whiten in at the same time. Claims to be long- lasting and is formulated with Squalene Oil to prevent dryness. Locally, it comes in 4 shades: Natural White, Yellow Beige, Natural Beige and Tropical Beige.
More about this potential drugstore superstar after the cut! :D
This powder foundation comes in a slim yet long compact that feels pretty sturdy, surprisingly-I haven't dropped it ever though so I dunno if the powder is pressed well in the pan!
Tropical Beige is a medium dark beige shade with an Olive undertone. Texture is semi- creamy and coverage is light to medium-it's creamy enough for me to achieve an even and good coverage in a snap, yet it's a little dry, which makes it suitable for my oily skin. What I don't like about it is it reeks of a fragrance that reminds me of cheap cosmetics.
The sponge is awesome! It doesn't crumble, doesn't have a rubbery smell, and effectively distributes the product and smooths out patchy areas!

Payoff of this product is not at all powdery! It's surprisingly skin- like and the pigments just melt effortlessly onto the skin a few seconds after application. It's quite pigmented that if you have very light skin discolorations, you can just wear this product on its own. I love how it gives my skin that smooth texture too!
This product gives me a slight white cast due to SPF 15-it also didn't say that the SPF in it is Broad Spectrum (meaning it can block off all types of UV rays) so you will need to wear it with another sunscreen. Other than these issues, I'm very happy with the overall performance and payoff of this product. Staying power is great too: It always takes me 4- 5 hours before I retouch my face. Sometimes, I use it to my workouts and even if it slightly fades after having a good sweat, it doesn't cake! Formula doesn't dry out my skin, but I don't think the Squalene Oil in it is enough to keep skin moisturized so I always use a moisturizer before this product.
I remember the time when I raved about Essence Fix 'N Matte Translucent Powder: a lot asked me about it and then they eventually purchased it, loved it, and preached about it-when it was my turn to restock, it was literally nowhere to be found as it was always out of stock! Upon remembering that, I was almost tempted to keep this great product to myself (there are a ton of reviews out there anyway) and not add anymore to the rave and scarcity issues (lol), but it's just too damn good to not share with you guys! :D So yes, this is one helluva great powder foundation and I could not believe how affordable it is! I believe it will suit just about any skin type and I highly recommend it!
