Can be a little on the dry side, so I tend to use more then I need to and can appear cakey. Make sure you use a good eye cream! Covers dark circles perfectly! Brightens wonderfully, though that's why it's peach! Lasts on me! Love it!
I'm on the fence with this product. The brightening peach shade does brighten and conceal but doesn't last. There is a comprehensive review by 'Seadoo' from 2011 so I won't duplicate anything she has said since I agree with all of it. Still looking for the 'perfect' concealer out there.
I am wheatish medium Indian skin toned with dry skin. I do not know what I am in Mac as I never matched my skin there.
I bought this product for 3 reasons: 1. I have dark under-eye circles 2. I tried most raved about drugstore concealers (Maybelline Fit me, Revlon Colorstay, Revlon Stick concealer) and got disappointed, because they all looked ashy when I used them directly 3. I learnt that to nullify dark under-eye circles, we need to apply peach-toned corrector and also learnt that Pixi one is the best!
After I applied the corrector on my moisturized under-eyes (I just applied Aveeno daily moisturizer on face), it simply made the area ashy just like the other concealers and my dark circles ended up looking even more purplish! Oh my!
I so wanted to love this product and probably this review is among the 1% for whom this product did not work. I tried to apply it directly on the skin without using moisturizer or applied this on moisturizer and then applied my Revlon Colorstay concealer on top; but the end result was not natural looking and ashy.
In spite of that, I do not have any complaints about the other aspects of the product like consistency (creamy and easy to blend), packaging (travel friendly), smell (does not have chemical-y smell) etc.
However, it did not do what it was supposed to, "for me". When I watched Emily Eddigton's video (emilynoel83), who is my favorite reviewer; of how she applied the product and how good it is for her, my heart cried. Because I invested $15 on a single product, hoping it will do wonders to address that area. But, I think it just does not work on my skin tone.
Probably, it works best on fair skinned people with pink undertones. One thing I figured that is, if one product is working for 99% of the people, it MAY NOT work for you! And, you have to try a concealer/corrector/foundation yourself in order to find out how it works for you, just do not go by people's reviews. Not that they do not help, but the satisfaction is not guaranteed!
Per, people's suggestions I will try Mac Pro Longwear Concealer.
P.S. - I have not used even 1% of the product, so I wish to sell it. Interested people can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Thanks for reading my review.
I think I may have found the perfect under eye concealer and its in this corrector. Very smooth and lightens my under eye area just right. It doesnt cover ALL my dark circles(I have a horrible hollow on one side of my face) but just enough to make me look much better and I can wear this alone by itself or mixed in with a concealer. Much better than Erase Paste (medium) which tends to dry out on me hours later. Less creasing than EP. So far a winner though I am always on the lookout for something better, I will return to this. Please Pixi never discontinue this because its right up there in quality with expensive dept. store brands.
I have been using this product for a year now and am not even halfway through the pot. I love it so much that I have stockpiled another two pots, just in case Pixi discontinue it.
I have really bad dark circles and always struggle to find a good concealer, despite trying almost everything on the market. But also this product works equally excellently on blemishes and redness.
Personally I think the price is amazing - just £12, especially as it lasts so long.
Don't be put off by the colour before application. It really does blend perfectly and looks invisible once properly applied with a small concealer brush.
I honestly wouldn't be without this and highly recommend it.
I just returned from Target having purchased my 2nd pot of this magical product. I'm only about halfway through my original pot, but I'm determined to never be without this product.
I have fair skin, a tendency to reddish/allergic-looking eyes, and hereditary dark undereye circles. Yep, I hit the jackpot.
I don't wear makeup every day--except for this. This is the only product that makes my undereye circles look like they don't exist. Not only does it totally cancel out those purplish circles under my eyes, it also generally brightens up my face and helps me look well-rested and awake. (Which I generally am, it's just that my undereye circles are such that I can get a solid 8 hours of sleep and STILL wake up looking like a zombie....sigh).
It's a thick cream with a somewhat dry texture, but blends very easily with a warm fingertip. After applying my AM SPF and eye cream, I pat a little of this color corrector under my eyes and blend using my ring finger and presto--my dark circles are gone like magic! I do occasionally notice some crease lines after applying this (does anything NOT crease under the eyes?), but they are easily blended out and the problem solved.
Although the product looks very, very peachy in the pot, when applied over dark shadowy areas it looks just like my skin, but better :)
The only negative thing about it is that I have to be careful not to apply it too far down on to my cheek area--my skin is pretty sensitive to silicone products, and this does have Dimethicone in it (although far down on the ingredients list). However, that's just my sensitive skin talking, not necessarily a fault of the product.
Will rebuy again and again. I hope this product is never discontinued!
I love this stuff! I have horrendous dark circles and a little bit of this stuff makes a huge difference. I was worried that it would be way too dark for me because I am super pale, but it blends in perfectly. I have not tried it on blemishes because I think it is primarily for covering purplish areas like under eyes. It comes in a sturdy glass container so I'm not afraid to take it with me when I travel. Its creamy textured, unscented and lasts all day for me. There is a very small amount of product in the container, but it does not take much of this stuff to cover up my dark circles so I have a feeling it will last me at least 6 months. I have very sensitive skin and it hasn't bothered my skin at all. My only complaint with it is that it can cause some creasing, especially if I use too much.
This is an EXCELLENT concealer. Absolutely flawless coverage for dark shadows, spider veins, blemishes, etc. It matches my fair-medium complexion perfectly. Some reviewers have complained that the formulation is thick and difficult to blend, however, I do not experience this issue. I would suggest mixing the slightest bit of moisturizer with this concealer if experiencing that issue. This product does exactly what it promises...brightens the whole eye area! I will never buy another concealer again, so I pray Pixi never stops making this, because I am in love! It's pricey, as all of Pixi's cosmetics are, but I believe this will last a long time. It's in a small glass jar with the classic Pixi mint green lid. It's very concentrated and you need very little of the concealer to get the job done.
Pixi Correction Concentrate, how do I love thee? let me count the ways.
You're so creamy, and yet never settle into the fine lines around my eye.
You are just the right shade, not too orange, so blending you into my pale skin is a breeze.
You instantly brighten my horrendously dark circles with the tiniest amount of product.
You're paraben free! (yay!)
And you even have vitamin c and e to nourish my skin while you make me look pretty.
Seriously folks, I have horribad eye circles that are consistently a dark, dusky purple (very noticeable, especially with my super pale skin), and this product has done more than any other similar product I've ever tried. Including Bobbi Brown's much loved corrector. And best of all, it's even cheaper! seriously, if you have bad eye circles, go out and try this stuff. It might not make them vanish completely, but it makes them look SO much better. Give it a try!
I have very bad undereye circles -- very dark and difficult to cover. I have fair skin, and that makes choosing products to cover them more difficult. This product is thick and very pigmented. It works well with my skin without being noticeable. It neutralizes the darkness under my eyes very well, and I see a difference when I use this product. It does brighten my eyes. I have also used it to highlight areas of my face, and it works well for that as well.
I have two issues with this product: the packaging, and it creases if you're no careful during application.
The jar it comes in is tiny, and it has a tiny opening. I wish it were in a flatter jar, so it would be easier to get my finger into it.
The reason I prefer to be able to get my finger into the product is that it creases if I use a brush to apply it. This product is thick, so it needs to warmth of fingers to blend into the skin well. I also find that using a brush causes a dip in the middle of the jar, and it is difficult to get the product from the sides of the jar. The small size of the jar is incredibly irritating.
Despite the flaw in packaging design, I continue to repurchase this product because it works better than anything else I have tried. I paid about 16 USD for this at Target. It is a small amount of product for that price, but one jar will last a few months, so it's not a steep price.
