Hey, babes today I have for you Pixi GlowCake Review and Swatches
When I receive items, pr or bought the first thing I do is snap a few pictures with my phone, maybe do an unboxing video and almost every time grab my camera and my flat-lay props box and start taking pictures. Mostly because when they look well loved greasy and worn, they are less photogenic. Store the photos on a hard drive until I tested the product well enough to form an opinion strong enough to review it.
When PixiGlow Cake landed on my doorstep, we were reaching the last steps in our home remodeling, and the new floors where being put in place which basically meant there was no way for me to reach for the camera and I could only take pictures in the bathroom but there my lightning sucks. I looked at the package for a half-hour before I literally ripped the packaging off. Not being able to unbox is a torture for me.
Pixi is literally one of my favorite brands so you can imagine how I felt not being able to not swatch and slater my face in it. And this torture lasted for two days! I’m serious, two full days I been walking around these two beauties without being able to play with them! Ok ok, I may have done a swatch, but that is just because my neighbor and a friend of mine came over to see the progress and they were showing a lot of interest in the gorgeous green&pink box that was keeping safe my amazing GlowCakes.
The PixiGlow Cakes are light-diffusing 3-in-one coordinated cheek colors, they come in two shades GildedBare Glow and Pink Champagne Glow, and there is a whopping 0.85oz/24g in each pan which will last forever and a week before hitting the pan; (seriously if you hit the pan on this one, please tag me on insta) and the packaging is Pixi beauty cult-by-now nothing short of gorgeousness. They are designed for busy bees always on the go beauties, and they are travel-friendly.
As I was saying above, Pixi Glow Cake’s are 3-in-one coordinated cheek colors which means each pan have three shades blended together in an ombre style which and they can be used individually to highlight, blush and contour the cheeks or you can just swirl your brush through all of the shades to achieve s perfect seamless PixiGlow!
Personally, I like to swirl my brush into both bronze and blush sides and sweep the combination across my cheeks for a dewy pop of color, and then I use the highlighter shade separately to enhance the look! On the days that I’m swamped, and on the go, I have my cake glow in my purse for quick retouches so I can tell you that it travels well.
PixiGlow Cake are cruelty free and they are formulated with:
Ceramides that help improve the skin’s moisture barrier
Peptides to assist with plumping & firming
Grape Seed Extract to help with the skin’s elasticity
GildedBare Glow is the perfect nude peachy toned, and it starts with a gorgeous bronzer that moves onto a shimmery peachy nude to finish with a delicate highlighter that enhances your PixiGlow
PinkChampagne Glow is the perfect pink, and it starts off with warm bronzer shade then moves onto a vibrant pink and finishes off with a beautiful baby pink glow

The formula of the PixiGlow Cake is so lovely, spot on buildable pigmentation that blends like a dream, there isn’t any fallout, and I have been able to wear it for a good 8-9 hours without any need of touching up.
It does add radiance and luminosity to the skin, but without looking glittery at all.
Both Pixi GlowCake’s are dewy finish, so if you are after something matte just bare that in mind please!
Otherwise, they are gorgeous and an excellent value for money because you are not only are you getting a large amount of product but it’s also a 3-in-one product that is also multi-functional, i use it to highlight my shoulders with it and even on my eyelids!
Have you tried or plan to try either of the PixiGlow Cake’s? I would love to know what did you think about them?
