Makeup Monday: Pixi Mattelustre Lipstick Swatches

It seems like ages ago that you all requested Pixi Mattelustre lipstick swatches, but I finally photographed them all — and just in time for Cyber Monday! They’re 15% off at Target with code CYBER15 today only, or 10% off with code SHINE through December 5th (retail is $12). As you might remember, “Bitten Rose” is one of my current go-tos (I love it so much, I have a backup), but there are a lot of beautiful colors in this range of lipsticks. The name “Mattelustre” is a little deceiving — and a bit of an oxymoron, I suppose — because as you can see, these aren’t very matte. Though Pixi by Petra describes them as “demi-matte,” the consistency is almost balm-like (in a very good way), with a satin finish. They’re not drying at all, have full coverage and high pigmentation, and you can blot them to get more of a matte, stain-like finish. There are 11 different colors of Pixi Mattelustre lipstick to choose from, so check them out below and let me know your favorites!

    Wow, these look amazing on you! Looking at them on Target’s website, I wouldn’t believe they color would translate so well! Definitely will need to check these out next time I’m at Target!

    As always you do the best swatches! I don’t think I can choose a favorite shade but the red is amazing but so are all the pinks and berries!

    I’m always suprised when I see you wearing a bunch of different colours and each and every one just suits you so well…damn girl, you got it!

    I picked up Bitten Rose when you recommended it a couple of posts back and I LOVE it… now looking at these swatches it’s very likely I’ll be buying a few more colors!

    You look amazing in all these lipsticks! I’ve never tried Pixi before… Now I really want to 🙂

    Happy Holidays!!

    Thanks for the review. Just a quick question, I am an olive skin tone, which colour do you think out of the three: Bitten Rose, Rose Naturelle or Honey Bare would suit me?
    thank you

    • Keiko Lynn says:

      Hmm, it depends on what you’re looking for. I can picture any looking good on olive skin tone – but the Honey Bare might be a particularly nice color for you!

  7. Christina says:

    Thank you for the review! I saw these at Target tonight and was interested 🙂 Two questions: 1) How long do they wear? 2) Are you using a primer or liner at all?

    • Keiko Lynn says:

      They’re long wearing and leave a slight stain behind, which I prefer since I don’t have much pigment. I don’t know exactly how long, since I usually remove and reapply my lipsticks every few hours (I hate the feeling of old lipstick), but I wasn’t wearing a primer or liner with any of these:)

    Hi…I was just wondering if Rose Naturelle…is a nude type rose?? I’m a med skin tone….i already have honey bear but seem to be attracted to the rose?? I love the lip shea balm in natural rose…are they a bit similar??

    • Keiko Lynn says:

      Kind of…it’s a little more blush pink than nude, but it does read as a neutral rose. It might be kind of light on you, if you’re medium tone. It’s definitely more pink than honey bare!
