2014 Holiday Beauty Gift Find - Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm Trio - Balmy Winter

Not only are these Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balms a GEM in the Target beauty isle, but for the holidays you can share this amazing lip care + lip color with all your beauty loving friends/family!

In the Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm -Balmy Winter Lip Balm Trio, there are 3 lip balms - 2 tinted: Honey Nectar and Ripe Raspberry, and one clear balm, Comfort Clear.

Together, these are really the ideal three balms to get you though the winter season.  The Honey Nectar shade is a pinky-light brown shade which works for a subtle nude lip with a touch of color, and the Ripe Raspberry is a very cheerful and flattering deep pink which works on all skin tones.  Of course, clear one you could always keep on your nightstand to add much needed moisture to your lips before bed this winter.

The texture of the balms is just lovely - buttery smooth, yet completely weightless and non greasy on the lips.  These offer a nice wash of color and they do have an impressive amount of pigment for a balm.  The scent is a really true, authentic light Vanilla that's not too sweet.  

The colors have a slightly satin finish (they are not high shine) and there's no shimmer or glitter. After a morning application, my lips has the perfect combination of moisture and color, and I didn't have to keep touching up during the day, except to add more color after eating. 

Note: these are also fairly long lasting, as the color wore away fairly slowly on my lips, even after several drinks/snacks in the am into the late afternoon.

These balms are perfect to wear for everyday looks, or to keep in your gym bag to add a swipe of color when your leaving from a workout to look pulled together.  The gift packaging is adorable with the color coordinated caps and the feminine pistachio green accents.  Since this is a trio, you could also spit up the set and give 1 each to three friends as a small office gift or stocking stuffer.

If you want to combat dry lips and prefer lighter, wearable lip color colors - or are just not a big lipstick fan, this is the perfect trio to pick up for yourself as well! 

Bonus? Great deal with the set being 3 for $16, as they are usually $8 each.- RLB
