ON CHEEKS: Pixi Multibalm applies well straight from the bullet, though I'd recommend starting with a brush or fingers until you gauge the pigmentation (it's good!). Using the flat tips of my first two fingers, I pat the colour onto my cheeks and finish by blending out with a soft brush. Less is more and it's always easier to add more than take away; if you overdo it or spread the colour too far, soften the effect by buffing in a little foundation. The finish is very natural and not tacky to the touch.
ON LIPS: Wild Rose is my standout shade, a gorgeous mauve pink that's right up my street. Baby Petal is a softer, more subtle version. As I'm not big into matte lips, I usually wear these over a clear balm for subtle sheen or add a touch of gloss on top; if your lips are very dry, you may prefer Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm (6 shades) or Tinted Brilliance Balm. While they work fine straight from the bullet on full lips, I'd opt for a lip brush for a precise finish on thinner lips, or use a finger.

Even the boxes are pretty (good for gifting) in Pixi's hallmark mint green and rose gold packaging.

In comparison to similar products, I'd describe Pixi Multibalms as slightly more matte in finish than Clinique Chubby Sticks for Cheeks and less malleable (making them easier to control) than NARS Multiples.
