Sometimes by midday, my skin loses its luster a little. Between the fatigue that hits around 3 p.m. and the wear and tear of the day, sometimes I need a little boost to get my glow back. Enter Pixi Lumi Radiance Powder ($8.99, amazon.com): The pressed powder for medium tones, created with pinks rose buds and fawn leaves in a field of peachy hues, it’s got a buffet of colors for me to make my face look radiant.

The effect of this powder is pretty subtle. It’s not as obvious as an outright blush that I have something on my face. Rather, it mimics the natural tones in my skin when it’s at its brightest — so it’s not a very striking makeup. Because it’s not necessarily a blush, but more of a highlighter, I found the subtleness to be perfect for looking good without looking like I had makeup on.

While it will brush off the more you touch your face, Pixi’s powder tends to stay on pretty well. It maintains its peachiness pretty well once it’s one, though after several hours of wear, it might require a little touching up.

Pixi Lumi Lux Radiance Powder is one of those products that just looks super natural — like you, only a little improved. This powder has a silky smooth texture when it’s on. Skin feels soft, not powdery. And it works for cheeks, eyes, and décolletage, so it does a lot of work for you. It’s the kind of little touch that’s perfect on a low-key day when you want to look your best, but seem like you didn’t have to try to look as good as you do.
