”Love, love, love, it. I’m a big makeup enthusiast. I wear a lot of makeup on a daily basis. When I’m going for the “Natural” look this is my go to cheek gel. I love it. I have one similar from Smashbox. I love this one more! It’s very lightweight, one reason why I love it. It’s worth getting another!”

*”I’ve always hated blush because it looks so fake, but this really does give your face a believable, natural looking flush. A little goes a long way when using this so even though the package is small I think it will last a long time.”

I bought the Sheer Cheek Gel from Pixi by Petra here on Beautymnl and I must say this is a holy grail product. It is very pigmented and gives your cheeks a natural pleasant color. This product is very versatile as it can also be used on lips on lids. This tube will last you a long time.6 months ago
Got mine in Rosy just a short while ago and unlike most skincare and/or makeup products, I figured this could be reviewed right away. What surprised me is the size - the tube is really tiny and not at all what I expected from the price, even from Pixi. For the quality itself, the product's name isn't lying at all - it really is sheer. A small amount barely gives a pinkish tinge - though I'm not really sure if it's because I already put the H20 skintint and the Colour Correcting Powder Foundation beforehand (both are from Pixi as well, I'm such a big fan of the brand, hehe). Maybe it's supposed to go before the powder foundation so that the color won't "bounce"? Anyway, after my initial surprise at the size and the barely-there color, I appreciate the fact that it gives you the most natural flush for your cheeks - comparable to the 'je ne sais quoi' effect that the H20 Skintint gives. Maybe I should get the 'Flushed' shade next, to see if it will satisfy the color pay-off I'm looking for? But I'll keep using this cute lil tube until the last drop as it's a nice addition to my Pixi stash (and as mentioned, excellent for pulling off the most natural everyday look). EDIT: The pinkish tinge surprisingly lasted the whole time I was in the office! Maybe this is worth the price, after all...11 months ago
I have oily skin so gel tints don't usually stay too long on my face. This one isn't that different. The gel tint didn't really last all day as I hoped it would. It did still hold for a good four to five hours before needing a re-application. It also does give your cheeks a nice natural-looking flush.over 1 year ago
I like cheek gels in general because they go on with a translucence that makes for a very natural glow that makes you look healthy and sun kissed. This one is particularly nice. The color might overwhelm you at first, but don't worry. It's a very subtle color once you spread it and it gives you a windburned (or sunburned) hue on your cheeks. This is excellent when you want to skip full on make up but want to still look made up. A swipe of this on your cheeks, some tinted lip gloss, and you've got a natural, laid back look. Will definitely repeat purchase this baby!over 1 year ago
I love it cause its so pigmented and the texture is gel so its very easy to blend.It looks so radiant when I put it on my cheeks.My officemate said that I look so blooming.They dont even know that Im using this cheek gel.A little goes a long way for this sheer cheek gel.Happy with this one.over 1 year ago
At first I thought I wouldn't appreciate this as I don't really like stuff that are sheer as I tend to go for the more vibrant ones but this one was really perfect! Sheer isn't too bad as you can build it up for a more obvious blush while doing it easily as the formulation of this glides on like a dream! Hope I don't run out of this soon by the amount I use per dayover 1 year ago
