Two years ago, I reviewed my first Pixi by Petra Sheer Cheek Gel in Flushed! I mentioned there are a total of 2 shades to choose from and Flushed is actually a nice colored cheek stain that can be used by fair to dark complexion! They are build-able, easy to apply and feels oh-so-good!
To some, they are still scared to use such shade based from the color on tube so here I am, two years after, ready to share to you the perfect shade for light to medium complexion!
The Pixi by Petra Sheer Cheek Gel in Rosy!
Rosy looks pretty bright on packaging but in reality, upon application, it lives up to its name --- sheer! With the similar consistency as the Flushed shade, it has a gel-like texture that feels like liquid upon application and finishes off matte on cheeks!
As for application, I prefer to use my clean fingers and gently warm up the product and blend starting from the apples of my cheeks going outward towards the hair line. It looks scary on first application but you have to work your way pretty quickly to even out the color.
Truth be told, I prefer Flushed (even for someone with fair complexion), Flushed appears better on photos and I don't need to apply more than a pea size on each cheek! As for Rosy, I would call this a perfect cheek color if you want to appear like you're not wearing any makeup at all! This is the look of having "naturally rosy cheeks"!
As for longevity, the Pixi Sheer Cheek Gel stays more than half a day if applied alone, you may extend the wear of this blush color by setting it with a translucent powder!
Now, if you are just starting out on using "cheek stains" and are scared to make "boo-boos", try the Pixi Sheer Cheek Gel and pick Rosy if you have fair skin and Flushed if you have medium to dark complexion.
