AMW Reviews: Pixi by Petra Flawless Beauty Primer

Hi everyone!
Who among you still uses face primers?
Me, I haven't for such a long time because every since I turned into a "mom", you can see how I always go for "no makeup" look on a daily basis.  Just check out my FOTDs on Instagram (@AskMeWhats).  I only get to play some colors with lipsticks because with a toddler who always press his dear face on mine?  I prefer to go naked skin at most times!

BUT, on times the little one is not hanging out with me as I'm going to an event or special party, that's the time I whip out my "brightening" base because my skin is "blah" and just..."blah!"  I still stand by on my favorite Benefit That Gal as my ultimate "blooming" base and the scent?  *sigh* Nakaka-good vibes!

All thanks to Glamourbox I was able to try Pixi By Petra Flawless Beauty Primer and guess what?  Well...I'm not spilling any beans on my review and I'll share how I feel about the product!

Pixi by Petra Flawless Beauty Primer Packaging

AMW says ---
  • Glass packaging.
  • Pump dispenser!
  • Hydrates even my super dry skin.
  • Skin looks healthy and glowing!
  • I can get away without foundation application and my skin looks healthy.
  • The texture is lightweight.
  • Fragrance-free.
  • No skin irritations.
  • This product wasn't tested on animals!  Yay!

  •  Oily-skinned users may find the effect a bit "greasy" on them.
  • Tried this underneath a foundation and I don't see the "prolong" wear.
  • Price.
  • No SPF.
Pixi by Petra Flawless Beauty Primer gives a youthful glow due to the "sheen" it contains that may translate to "oily skin" for users who tend to oil up a lot while heaven-sent for users who have dry skin (moi!)  It does give the healthy skin effect but not as what Petra said about the skin looking like in the 20s. (hehehe)


  • Even with dry skin, I still prefer to set this with my favorite powder, I don't like my skin to look from dry to oily!
  • Concealer is still needed for extreme redness.
  • If you have combination skin, apply this primer only on areas of your face that you need "glow".
  • Less is more, you don't need a lot of product to see the effect.
  • I tried using a foundation brush and fingers in application, I prefer the latter.
Will I repurchase?

To whom do I recommend this to?
Users who have dry skin.

Pump packaging
Housed in glass making the product worth the price.

Swatch on Hand
Okay, for those who were born on the 70's and 80's, doesn't the shade remind you of Caladryl?
It has a pinky-peach shade but blends into your skin after constant rubbing.

As seen on photo below, it has a sheen finish making my skin looks well-hydrated.

For the whole face, I use this much.  Actually I pumped a bit too much!  1.5 pumps are enough!

Before and After
Obviously, this isn't a foundation or concealer so I do not expect this to give me coverage BUT, because of the "sheen" and glow, my skin looks more even and healthy.

For better view, I did a half face test.  Left facing you applied with Pixi by Petra Flawless Beauty Primer while right facing you is my tadah...bare face!

Even with dry skin, my skin looked a bit oily right?

For best results?  Set with your favorite powder, in my case, I just used a translucent powder from Ellana Minerals and here's the result!  Matte yet dewy (if there's such contrast)

Will you give Pixi by Petra Flawless Beauty Primer a try even with your current skin condition? (oily/Combination?)
