Very good product, does the job nicely. I use this under my regular concealer, and blend with the elf studio concealer brush. My dark circles are not severe, so just a bit works fine for me. I like that it is a smaller container, as a larger one would dry out before I could use all the product, but feel the price should be just a touch lower.
This has become one of my new holy grail products. I've been using it almost every day since I purchased it. I suffer from pretty bad dark circles thanks to genetics. I had always just used a concealer and nothing else for the longest time. I decided to give this a try because the price is pretty resonable and I tend to like a lot of Pixi products. I was so pleased when I saw such a big difference between the eye that had the Correction Concentrate and the eye than didn't. It has lasted through sweat and even rain. I would say it has a wear time of about 6 hours. It's so pigmented that I only need a small amount, so even though it comes in a tiny pot, it will last me a very long time. Most days, I don't even need to add a concealer over the top. It does just fine by itself. It might prove to be a bit dry for some people. I make sure I prep with an eye creme before I apply. It give it a much smoother finish.
The reviewer below is incorrect. I have olive undertones and this stuff works AMAZING under my NARS Custard concealer.
HG for life.
eek what a horrible product.
I was dissatisfied with this in every way.
I cannot believe it the price for this.
The color would only be useful if you are fair to light and have cool undertones.
This is not peachy enough for medium or darker skin tones. It is very ashy looking and not a good consistency. Feels cheap.
I bought this one for over a year ago and it is almost unused. So it is with much of my makeup but it fits perfectly with my skin tone and cover the blue under my eyes. I must have setting powder on afterwards as it is a little greasy. I like the consistency better with this from Pixi than Benefit that is too thick and greasy. I don't know if I would buy Pixi again when I have so many concealers
Covers my dark circles well, but it always feels so thick and cakey under my eyes so it deters me from using it.
This isn't a rave review, but I like this product a lot, and will buy it again.
Let's start with the cons:
a) This concealer is too expensive for the amount you get. Period. The glass tub is TINY, and Pixi packages it for the shelf inside of a much larger box, giving you the impression that there will be a lot of product. This is very misleading.
b) The product formula is just a tad greasy. I'm fine with that because I can be a bit dry around my eyes but those with oilier skin may want to try something else.
This concealer works exactly as the description says it will, which is almost unheard of. It's a rich, lovely peach color that corrects dark circles and blue veins.
It has no discernable smell - a BIG plus to me.
Pixi wins again with packaging. The tub may be very small, but it's adorable - you can leave this product sitting out on your vanity, and the mint-green cap with the pixi on it looks retro and chic.
-A little goes a long way. I made the mistake at first of dipping 2 fingers in the pot to get product (one finger per eye area), but only half of this was needed.
-Play around with this concealer at first. It really does take 5-6 uses to get the hang of exactly how much you need and exactly where to apply it.
-Try setting it with powder. I've been setting it with Bare Minerals Well Rested concealer powder, and that works beautifully for me.
This product is creamy, has great coverage, and doesn't settle into fine lines unless I've overdone it. I have minor dark circles under my eyes, a little extra pigmentation around my mouth/chin, and major dark spots that get left behind for ages after i have any kind of acne. This works like a dream to cover these problem-areas up! I love this enough that i use it every single time that i put on makeup. I like using small foundation brushes on it (like Sonia Kashuk's 114 or Real Techniques small pointed foundation brush) for under my eyes or I'll use a makeup sponge for dark spots and it covers everything perfectly. My only issue with this product is that it dries my skin out! I noticed very quickly that areas i use it in regularly (under my eyes, the sides of my nose, the sides of my mouth) got drier and drier. It's really unfortunate because not enough drugstore companies make peach-toned color correctors (if they do they're watery, but for the most part it's only green color corrector). At $12 i have been thinking of just purchasing a high end color corrector, but for now, I'm loving this!
I just bought this today and used it for the first time, so will have to update the packaging rating later as I get farther into the pot. That being said, I love this! I am very fair skinned and have hereditary dark circles that don't go away no matter how much crap I slather on or how much rest I get. In the past, I just used a liquid concealer from no specific drugstore brand but didn't realize how much I was missing out. This cancels out the blueish dark circles perfectly and blends into my skin like a flipping dream. It creases a little bit but I just gently blend back in with my pinky finger and all is fixed. I have been researching the Bobbi Brown corrector and was contemplating buying that but decided to go with this instead so I cannot compare the two. However, the Bobbi Brown is $24 dollars for just half the amount of product you get with this for only $12.
The only concern I have with this is that Vitamin A is listed as one of the ingredients, about half way down. While vitamins are good for the skin, Vitamin A in particular can form free radicals on the skin and speed the the development of skin tumors when combined with sunlight. It can also make skin more sensitive to sunlight. So at the very least, make sure to wear a large pair of sunglasses if you're wearing this and at the beach or out in the sun for a while.
When I first tried this I completely misunderstood it. I used too much and in all the wrong ways. So I set it aside. I've now come to appreciate this product! A small dab in the corner of my undereye and bam! My undereyes are no longer grey but a fresh skin color. My advice is to use very little, make sure to spread it smoothly and don't spread beyond the eye circle or it further eccentuates the discoloration :) I like that I can use it even when I don't put on foundation!
