BareMinerals’ buxom Pixie

Very faint, very sheer, not a hint of shimmer. For me, this color is a little dull - I personally prefer Zena or Katie. For others, this is the shade they've been waiting for in the Buxom lineup. Good for folks who just want a soft traditional “gloss” appearance on top of their existing lip color, but don't want to actually change the underlying shade significantly. (Though if that's what you really, want Krystal - a plain clear Buxom - is really better for that.)

Pixie was released in mini size with a few kits, but to my knowledge has not ever been available full-size or for individual purchase.
