I took a day of leave from the blogging world yesterday to get some much needed errands accomplished, since I had a day off from work. I felt so accomplished; even my truck is clean! Well...the inside of my truck. The outside is still probably accumulating more dirt as we speak.
As many of you already know, I spent the better part of the last week and a half sick as a dog with a chest cold. I'm feeling much better; almost back to my old self! That one was a doozy, seeing as I nearly never get sick. Thankfully, I didn't really look as bad as I felt, and I feel like a MAJOR shout out goes to this product right here - the Pixi Correction Concentrate.
The product is held in a small glass pot with a mint green lid featuring a fairy - pretty darn cute!
The product itself is a salmon-y peach concealer with a medium to medium thick consistency. As you may already know, the peach and salmon tones are meant to neutralize under-eye circles; just as green concealers neutralize blemishes, etc. It is available in one tone, nothing lighter nor darker, and that worried me just a tad - seeing as I am so fair skinned, I feared that this would be to dark against my skin and thus, not accomplish what it was intended to in the first place, but it worked like a dream!
I apply this after my foundation with a medium sized pointed concealer brush and it blends easily; even without having the product warmed up on my fingertips. I do not have extremely prominent under-eye circles, but they're there and this covers them completely without much work, which leads me to believe that it would also work on those who suffer from dark under-eye circles which are worse than mine. As a habit, I also set this with a powder as I do the rest of my face and thus, have not noticed any creasing or anything of the sort. It bears mentioning that the medium consistency provides a touch less color payoff than I expected, but it can be built up to conceal more.
- Seems to be a very universal shade.
- Blends naturally
- Medium consistency
- May not be pigmented enough for incredibly prominent dark circles.
For a while, it was between this product and Bobbi Brown's take on it; I went cheaper - Pixi at $15 and Bobbi Brown at $23. While I am VERY fond of this product, I may try Bobbi Brown's for good measure - and the fact that there are 4 different peach shades to choose from, ranging from porcelain to deep. While its not a super budget option; Pixi's was cheaper and definitely gets the job done!
