If you know of the drugstore makeup brand Pixi Beauty (Pixi by Petra) you’ll know that it is hard to find Pixi Beauty in Canada. I love many items from Pixi beauty but it is hard to shop Pixi Beauty online in Canada directly from their website.
This is particularly hard for Canadians because if you don’t know where to buy Pixi Beauty in Canada you can’t try the products before you buy online.
I’ll go into detail about how Canadians can shop on the Pixi website but there to buy Pixi Beauty in Canada that are both online and offline.
Also, some of the Pixi Beauty items at Shoppers Drug Mart are exclusive to them meaning that no other retailer in Canada carries some specific items from Pixi. Keep reading to find out how to buy Pixi Beauty in Canada.
How to Buy Pixi Beauty in Canada
There are three different options listed below on how to buy Pixi Beauty from Canada. I am Canadian and from my perspective shopping at Shoppers Drug Mart is the best option but keep reading to find the pros and cons for each source.
PixiBeauty.com International Website
If you go to Pixibeauty.com you will instantly be redirected to shop the International website. If you are from the United States you can keep shopping though!
When you visit the Pixi Beauty International website, you’ll see all of the prices are in pounds. The conversion rate from CAD to 1 Pound Sterling is about the equivalent at the time of writing this review at $1.70 CAD. So, when you see a price in pounds, you have to add .70 for every dollar.
The hassle of doing the conversion and the fact that Canadians can get almost the entire line of Pixi Beauty from Shoppers Drug Mart online or in stores.
However, there are items that will be sold out or you can’t get anywhere else but on the website so you may just have to bite the bullet and shop on PixiBeauty.com.
Shipping from PixiBeauty.com to Canada is a standard shipping of 14.50 pounds or converted to Canadian dollars it is a flat rate of approximately $25 CAD.
Shoppers Drug Mart
Great news! Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty carries Pixi Beauty online and in stores. They carry pretty much the entire line of makeup and skincare. If you are familiar with shopping at Shoppers Drug Mart, you can find Pixi Beauty in the middle of the drugstore and luxury beauty.
As mentioned above, Pixi Beauty is in the middle of drugstore and luxury beauty and it’s a small category to be in.
The great thing about buying Pixi Beauty at Shoppers Drug Mart is collecting the Optimum points! If you can find a weekend or day when they give you 20x the points you should stock up on Pixi best sellers (more on that below).
Sometimes, Shoppers Drug Mart gives 20x the points on just Pixi Beauty items anyway so you could score that way. I also find that almost every other week Pixi Beauty is on sale! That’s way better of a deal than shopping on PixiBeauty.com.
I’ve done a search on Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty that links directly to all Pixi Beauty products so that you can see the entire collection and what is on sale from Pixi.
Shoppers Drug Mart is the official partner of Pixi by Petra in Canada and the best option for shopping Pixi Beauty.
Usually, if you spend a certain amount, Shoppers Drug Mart will throw in a free gift and samples of other beauty products.
Amazon carries a selection of Pixi Beauty products on their website. However for Canadians, it still doesn’t make sense to shop on Amazon because the prices are inflated and you don’t know how long the items have been sitting in the warehouse from.
You can still shop on Amazon for Pixi Beauty but if you have the choice of ordering from Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty then I would do that.
Walmart Canada has their own third party marketplace. This means that even if they don’t sell the item in stores, they can always sell an item of another retailer and not hold the inventory.
The selection on Walmart Canada is pretty good in terms of variety of Pixi products but the prices are VERY expensive and inflated. There’s no reason to spend that amount on Pixi Beauty when you can get the same products at Shoppers Drug Mart for a lot less.
Pixi Beauty Reviews and Best Sellers
Pixi Beauty has a ton of amazing review sand Best Sellers in their makeup and skincare lines. There are a few products that stand out from the rest for both skincare and makeup.
Pixi Skincare Best Sellers
There are a few products that Pixi Beauty is known for and that is what has made the brand so famous.
People love the Glow Tonic because it is a toner that gives skin a healthy glow instantly. The active ingredient in the Glow Tonic is 5% Glycolic Acid that helps to exfoliate the skin and brighten. This is a very gentle way to exfoliate your face with a chemical exfoliant if you are a beginner.
There are also other Tonics or Toners that will improve the look of your skin based on other needs. Check out these other Tonics from Pixi to see if these match your skin type.
2. Glow Tonic Serum
The Pixi Glow Tonic Serum is one of the best sellers because it’s s a lightweight serum that has similar benefits of the regular Glow Tonic. It has Glycolic Acid that helps to exfoliate and aloe Vera and ginseng to soothe and calm the skin.
In my opinion, if you’re using the Glow Tonic Toner, I wouldn’t pair it with the serum in the same application because too much Glycolic Acid can irritate the skin.
3. FortifEYE Eye Patches
The FortifEYE Eye Patches by Pixi are one of the best selling eye patches on the market in general. These have Acacia Collagen in them so it really helps to plump and boost elasticity. They also have caffeine to de-puff and peptides to firm. These eye patches are just as good as any other expensive eye patch and have gotten amazing reviews.
Pixi Makeup Best Sellers
Pixi Makeup is considered drugstore makeup but I find that it is on the upper end. The packaging is superb and it feels very luscious. The quality of the Pixi makeup products also rival any luxury brand.
1. Correction Concentrate Under Eye Brightener
The Correction Concentrate Under Eye Brightener is an exact dupe of the Becca Cosmetics Under Eye Brightener (read my dupe post here). The Correct Concentrate will correct dark circles under the eye before you apply concealer. If you’re looking for a way to get rid of your under eye circles at any age you should check out this affordable option.
I will let you know that this item sells out FAST because it is a direct dupe for the Becca Under Eye product so if you find it online at Shoppers Drug Mart add it to cart fast!
2. On-The-Glow-Blush Tinted Moisture Stick in Ruby
I love the applicator of the On-The-Glow-Blush because it reminds me of a deodorant stick. It’s really long and narrow so you can get the perfect cheek application. The colour Ruby is more on the red tones with a coral hue and it is super pigmented so a little goes a long way!
You just need to blend it into the skin with your fingers to get a really nice dewy flushed look for summer. This is one of the most affordable cream drugstore blushes right now so I would definitely pick this one up.
3. Eye Reflection Palette
Pixi eyeshadows are good value for your money. They are very pigmented and the glitters rival any other luxury brand. I’ve had my Eye Reflection Palette for a few years now and it is one of my favourite drugstore eyeshadow palettes. I can easily apply Pixi eyeshadows with my fingers which is super important to me when I need to get out the door fast.
The one you see above is called Natural beauty which is full of neutrals and cool tones. If you are looking for a warm toned eyeshadow palette you should pick up the one called: “Mixed Metals” which is a metallic shade range.
Overall, you’re getting 12 huge pan shades for $34 CAD which is $2.83 per shade – this is a great deal!
Final thoughts, if you are looking to buy Pixi products in Canada, you’ll want to shop at Shoppers Drug Mart either online or in store.
