Pixy is a flagship brand under Mandom Corporation, a Japanese company that manufactures cosmetics. Mandom Malaysia was initiated in 1997, and became a consolidated subsidiary of Mandom Corporation.
I was under the impression that the brand was actually Malaysian because it is very affordable, almost bordering on cheap. This is my review on the Two Way Cake Perfect Fit powder review. I actually just buy the refills which are much cheaper than buying the compact because the only thing missing is the sponge and a mirror and I have my own! The compact costs twice more by the way.
Description: A two way powder that comes in 12.2 grams (about 0.43 oz) and in 5 shades. It comes in a compact form and refills (as you see above). The two way powder means that it can be used wet or dry; either with a dry powder puff or sponge or a wet medium like a dampened beauty blender or cosmetic sponge.
Where to buy: Watsons and Guardian
Price: Full compact, MYR 18.77; refill, MYR 11.22 (even without a discount this is pretty affordable, cheap almost!)
Good coverage considering it is a pressed powder.
Coverage can be pumped up by using it with a wet sponge.
Blends pretty well.
Helps with oil control even considering it is enriched with squalene oil.
Lasts well throughout the day without breaking apart even with a bit of sweating.
A tiny bit unforgiving with deep set lines because it tends to crease over time.
Can’t be used in excess because it can crack if over applied.
People with oilier skin would not be able to use this because, although it does control oil, excess facial oil does break it apart.
Emphasises texture a tiny bit.
I only ever use this with stage performances since it does appear a tiny bit lighter on my skin when used without a foundation. Which is why I don’t have a wear test picture to show you.
I need to mention here that I used this quite often with stage performances and it held up well through it. Do give it a go! The refill can go as low as below MYR 9!
