Pixy UV Whitening Two Way Cake Perfect Matte Foundation Review

Pixy UV Whitening Two Way Cake Perfect Matte Foundation review
I got my first Pixy UV Whitening Two Way Cake Perfect Matte foundation last year from a BDJ box and I must admit that I am not really thrilled about it. It says on the pamphlet that comes with the box that it’s only 275php(145php for refills). I thought if it’s that cheap it can’t be that good. Not to mention is has that strong drugstore foundation scent. If you know what I mean!

However, when I ran out of my Maybelline Clear Smooth Extra Shine Free Powder foundation, this is all I can find in my drawer so I shrug and just gave it a try. Holy Smokes! I am impressed upon application. I used it with a brush that time and it yields medium coverage, you can actually build it up to heavy coverage.

Since it can be used as a cake foundation, I tried to use it with my Holika Holika Foundation sponge which I got from a BDJ Box too and loved it even more! It yields a silky finish that looks natural on the skin. I’ve been using it as a cake foundation  ever since and it has never failed.

Pixy UV Whitening Two Way Cake Perfect Matte Foundation Pros:
  • It’s affordable. It retails for only 275php. 145php for refills.
  • It’s oil free. You know I have oily skin so an oil free foundation is a must for me.
  • Buildable coverage. You can use a brush for a light to medium coverage or a wet sponge for a medium to heavy coverage.
  • I have to mention too that when I use this as a cake foundation, there’s almost no need for me to conceal. 
  • It yields silky and natural finish.
  • The Pixy UV Whitening Two Way Cake Perfect Matte Foundation doesn’t have white cast on flash photography.
  • It can last for 6-7hours on my oily skin. You’ll need to blot after 5hours or so if you have really oily skin.
  • It has a matte finish but it doesn’t accentuate dry patches.
  • The packaging is not flimsy. I know for the price of 275php you’ll expect a cheap plastic packaging but believe me it’s packaging is sturdy and doesn’t feel cheap at all. Its packaging is comparable to Lancome’s compact foundations.
  • It comes with a sizeable mirror.
  • It has yellow undertone. Most Filipinas has yellow undertone so it’s perfect for most of us. 😉
Pixy UV Whitening Two Way Cake Perfect Matte Foundation Cons:
  • Has a strong drugstore foundation scent.
  • The sponge it comes with is too thin for my liking. It still comes in handy for retouches though.
