The Foundation Fairy: Pixi Flawless Beauty Stick

Hello fair ladies!

My Foundation Fairy: A Fair Girl's Guide to Foundation series continues with this amazing foundation stick from one of my favorite brands: Pixi Beauty!

Pixi's Flawless Beauty Stick in No. 1 Cream might just be the foundation stick that I have been searching for! There are so many things that I like about this product! To hear how this product worked for me, keep reading!

The Shade: Does it work?
I tested out the shade No. 1 Cream which is a neutral very light shade for fair skin. Guess what? It is a *perfect* match to my skin tone!!! You fellow super fair ladies know that finding an exact match is rare in foundation! I am just thrilled that Pixi carries foundations that are suitable for super-duper fair skin. Often I have to settle for "close matches" or adjust shades with powder, etc. But, not this one. The match is just right! 
The Coverage, Finish, and Wear:
This foundation stick can be worn for full coverage; but, depending on application, you can sheer it out a bit for lighter wear. Personally, I love the ease of foundations in stick form. I like to use stick foundations as a foundation/concealer hybrid. I cover the areas that need some coverage and then blend it out. So, I do not wear it "all over my face" as I just don't need that much coverage everywhere. Primarily, I use this on and around the nose and on the chin. For under my eyes, I use concealer as this foundation is not quite enough to cover my super-dark under eye circles (Honestly, I never expect a foundation to cover my circles as they are just too dark). The finish is cream-to-powder. I like how this foundation seems to fill in my pores. The foundation wears all day on me with no problems!
The Skinny:
  • Available at Target and the Pixi Beauty.
  • Retails for $26.00.
  • Comes in 3 shades: Cream, Nude, and Warm
This foundation has replaced concealer for me in all areas except for under the eyes. Most days I wear this foundation with a very light dusting of powder and that is it! I love how quick and easy this product is to apply! Pixi's Flawless Beauty Stick in No. 1 Cream is a *total keeper* for me! Another winner from Pixi! This product gets my PBB Stamp of Approval! :)

Hi Pammy. I LOVE your blog! :)
I would like to buy the Pixi Flawless Beauty Stick but I am torn between the "Cream" and "Nude" shades. I'm NC20 with slightly yellow undertones. Which shade do you think I should get?
Please reply SOON if you can! I want to buy it today! LOL

@Anonymous-Well, I am a NC15 in MAC and Cream is a perfect match for me. So, it would likely be a bit too light for you. I did not personally test out Nude. So, I am not sure how much darker it is than Cream. If I were to guess, I would tell you to try Nude first. Good luck! :) I really love this foundation stick and I hope you do too! :) Thanks for reading my blog!

It looks interesting! I feel like stick foundations sort of had their "moment" in the early 2000's, haven't seen too many out on the market since then.

Thanks for your reply, Pammy! Apparently the "Nude" is a lot darker (oranger) thank "Cream," so I got the "Cream" and it's a great match for me. I'm NC20 in Mac so I guess it's pretty close to you. I haven't tried it out yet but I did swatch it on my face. I have combo-oily skin and this makeup stick seems to have a lot of moisturizing ingredients in it. Do you think it would be too greasy for me? Just asking your advice because I would rather not use it if it's not good for oily skin - that way I can return it without any problems. Thanks again! :)

Wow! I wanna try this now. I'm impressed that the color matches.

@Phyrra-You should! It is just about the lightest foundation that I have found that is not a department store brand. Love it!

@Anonymous-My skin is more normal-dry but I do get a bit more "oily" in the summer. So, I can only recommend based on the experience with my skin. I think you would be ok (but that is just a guess!). :) Glad you got a good color match!!! Thanks for the comments!

Looks like a perfect match! Seems like a great all in 1 product for concealer and foundation!

@Olivia-Yes, the color is just right!
