Pixi Beauty MatteLustre Lipsticks swatches and review BeautyJudy

I love a tube of lipstick; lipstick was my first makeup love when I started my lifelong journey into a love of makeup!

But I love tube lipstick even more when it has staying power.

Pixi by Petra Mattelustre Lipstick goes on creamy, but tends to stain my lips a little, so the color doesn’t immediately disappear when I eat my breakfast and drink my coffee! It’s something that surprised me!

Despite the plastic safety wrapping around the tubes that shows what color the lipstick is, the Mattelustre lipsticks are packaged in Pixi’s signature light spring green tubing.

About Mattelustre, Pixi states, “The ultimate in multi-tasking lip enhancement, this demi-matte lipstick conditions, plumps and protects lips while giving long lasting, intense colour. Added peptides, hyaluronic acid, and vitamins C & E help to create fuller, smoother looking lips.”

It’s rare that I agree with almost everything a brand says about its product performance, but I have to say, I felt that these lipsticks – while matte – provided moisture and comfort. Check out how I wore three of them!

Rose Naturelle

Rose Naturelle, on my pale skin, is the prettiest, work appropriate and low-key lipstick look I could hope for. It’s a nude with a pink edge, which makes it very wearable for me.

Peach Blossom

Peach Blossom makes my lips look ready for a spring or summer. It’s a bit of a “juicy” looking color, a beautiful light coral-peach that again – fits my pale skin tone nicely.

Bitten Rose

Bitten Rose is a nice light mauve hue. I hate to keep saying how fresh and work appropriate these colors are, but they really are. I feel like overall, Pixi is a brand I know I can rely on for makeup that’s either natural or work appropriate – at least I speak for my own skin tone. (Also, apologies at how horrible my chin looks in this close-up; trust me, I’ve exfoliated since then, lol!)

There are 11 shades in the Mattelustre Lipstick line, and you can find them here on‘s website, or at Target/Target’s website.

I would buy more, and I’m thinking of picking up Bitten Rose for my mom for Christmas – she loves colors like this and I think it’d make a great stocking stuffer!

Have you tried the Mattelustre line of Pixi lippies?! What do you think?

  • Honeygirlk

    I have some of these and have been absolutely loving them. My lips just love how they feel on and I’m a huge fan of pixi 😉


    All three are so pretty and wearable! I love me a tube lipstick with decent staying power as well. The first photo took me in – I thought that was the actual packaging and not safety wrapping!

  • loveforlacquer

    Bitten Rose is stunning on you!

  • 25 Sweetpeas

    I really like the Rose one!

  • Georgia Geary

    I’ve had my eye on Pixi for a while now but haven’t tried any products- peach rose is making me more and more inclined to give it a go!

  • Kathryne

    I think I have Bitten Rose, it looks really nice. I have tried quite a few from this collection, overall good for the price point

  • Kristi Vasquez

    I haven’t tried any PIXI products, but it’s on my radar. I love the swatch though!

  • Jen Sky Walker

    I’ve not actually tried many Pixi products in general, and I have no idea why! I keep hearing nice things about the brand and just need to make it a priority at Target instead of just diapers and the dollar spot.

  • Courtney B

    I love these mattes! They’re really the only thing I wear anymore.
