When it comes to autumn and winter beauty, it always feels so easy to go a bit too deep or too heavy when it comes to formulas. As much as I love a dramatic lip or beautiful smokey eye, on a day to day basis it’s completely unnecessary, especially this year, when going ‘out, out’ feels like history. Instead, I’ve been on the hunt for products which can add a little pep and make me look and feel brighter, without being too obvious.
One of my newest favourites is Pixi Beauty’s +C Vit Lip Brightener – part of their new +C Vit lineup, which includes everything from a rather glorious tinted under eye concealer to a priming oil which is basically great skin in a bottle. The +C Vit Lip Brightener has become a morning staple, as recently, I’ve felt I needed a bit of colour in the mornings, but I didn’t want anything too dramatic. Pixi’s Lip Brightener is a stroke of genius – part balm, part colour, it hydrates and moisturises the lips whilst leaving a sheer veil of pretty colour behind.
With a central core fortified with Vitamin C, which brightens skin and promotes collagen production, the Lip Brightener feels gorgeously balmy to wear. Perfect for cold mornings, when I need as much help as possible, I’m obsessed with it’s silky texture and super flattering shade. It’s a real ‘your-lips-but-better’ option, which perks up tired skin and smoothes lips thanks to the Jojoba Seed Oil and Vitamin E in the formula.
Pixi Beauty +C Vit Lip Brightener is priced at £10 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
