I used this product for one week. I got it in No. 3, which in the store seemed too dark for me. However, once applied it was the perfect shade. I highly suggest going to Pixi's website and answering their questions that then suggests shades for you.

This product was decent, I love the concealer and the TM in one package. The concealer also has a fantastic texture for my skin that doesn't leave me feeling greasy. I liked the glow I got from the TM and the shade matched fairly well. It is also the only TM I've tried that doesn't leave my skin feeling oily by mid-day.

I ended up returning the tube today because I've noticed tiny breakouts around my mouth. I very rarely breakout and the TM is the only new thing I had been using. I also felt the TM was a bit hard to blend because it absorbs so quickly even if I used my normal moisturizer first, and in the sunlight I noticed a glittery effect.

Overall I wouldn't say this is a terrible product, but I won't be repurchasing. I would recommend trying it for a week if you're in the market for a TM. If you hate it, you can always return it!

It works amazingly! I have never found a foundation like this one! It covers amazingly, it makes my skin look airbrushed and radiant, and the concealer works great. The only drawback: IT IS REALLY EXPENSIVE! But I can't change that.

I've tried a good amount of tinted moisturizers but this is so far my favorite. I like the look it gives the skin. It's not full coverage so you can still see your skin underneath, but it makes it look more even toned, glowy and dewy for me. It's definitely good in the summer when you don't want to put on a higher coverage foundation. However I don't really like the concealer that it's attatched to. It's not a bad concealer, it's just not the type of concealer I like. With me, it was too light and gave me a sort of reverse racoon effect. The coverage; not bad, not good either. Soon after I put it on it began to slide and fade away. The actual tinted moisturizer is great. The concealer, not so much.
I use No. 3 Nude Glow.

This product is pure genius. First, the concealer ball tip is so easy to apply. Then, it is the only concealer I have used that is the perfect balance between concealing & natural-ness. I can use it anywhere - no breakouts on my chin from using it, no settling into lines etc. But it is a cream, a thick cream....but it goes on thin! It is sort of expensive, but compared to other high quality make-ups, and how much better it is, it really isn't. I have been using it over 6 months, still plenty left.
The tinted moisturizer has just enough coverage to be a tinted moisturizer, not a sheer foundation. It is COMFORTABLE on my skin!! So many tinted moisturizers make me itch! This one feels good all day.
I don't know where this line came from but I am glad randomly found it at target. I had not heard of pixi. The products are all great.

This is a decent product. Probably most suitable for the summer (I have dry skin). It is very sheer, but yet gives some coverage without looking obvious. I prefer this to the Becca and Laura Mercier TMs. The colour is a tad too dark for me (use it in Light Glow n. 1 and I am NC15). I like the idea of the concealer at the top of the applicator, but unfortunately it is a little bit waxy and unnatural - it sits on my skin. The TM does not have any scent and goes on like a dream. I like it has SPF 20 and a very good staying power. It is easy to touch up and never looks cakey or unnatural. I do not have problems with the illuminating properties as I like the dewy finish and the illuminating property is barely noticeable. 2 lippies because the colour does not match my complexion perfectly, it dries up very quickly and my skin looks it is in desperate need for more moisture, the dewiness disappears in 30 minutes and the fiddly concealer is just bad (too dry for undereyes and not very much coverage on blemishes). Overall Okish if you do not have a problematic skin and have an oily skin. For dry skin? Leave it for the summer. I will use it when I play golf just to finish it off.

I was less than enthused by this product. TM is sparkly and burned my sensitive skin. Also think it caused some breakouts. Concealer is a bust too. Can only be used on concealing imperfections and not around the eye as it's too powdery and thick for that area at least on me. And tube in tres tiny for 30 bucks. Really if you are okay with sparkly spring for Laura Mercier's Illuminating TM for 40 bucks. The tube is huge and color choices are better.

I've been on the hunt for the perfect tinted moisturizer for ages and I think I've finally found it with this product! I'm so glad I followed the reviews on here and bought it. This is separated into two different products, an illuminating tinted moisturizer and a concealer, so I'll review them both individually and then together.

First off, the tinted moisturizer: There are quite a few complaints about the shimmer in this but it really is not that noticeable. I usually hate shimmery foundations of any sort as more often than not they tend to make me look like I spread body glitter all over my face, but the shimmer in this is very fine and sparse. It just gives your skin a dewy glow - you can't tell it's there unless you look very closely. I can wear sparkly blushes without it looking like glitter overkill. The level of coverage in this is perfect, as well. It evens out any discoloration in my skin while still looking incredibly natural and fresh.

I love that it comes with a little coordinating concealer, too. The concealer seems to have a hard shell coating on it, but once you work through that it's very creamy. I've tried it on blemishes, scars, red spots, and my under-eye and it worked perfectly for all of them! It blends well and looks completely natural. I've read that some people felt the concealer was too heavy and thick to work for under-eye but I haven't had any problems with caking or settling. I apply an eye cream, lightly dot the concealer under my eye, and then blend with my fingers. Works like a charm!

I have very, very fair skin (comes with having red hair, I guess :P) and the lightest shade matches perfectly. This product does contain parabens but otherwise is wholesome. My skin is very sensitive and this product has not broken me out at all, so I'm not too worried about the ingredients. It is a tad bit water-repellent, but comes off easily with my normal face wash. Like others have mentioned, I feel like I'm going to run out of the TM before the concealer, but that isn't really a deterrent.

For $30 you get two great products that work beautifully together, which justifies the price for me. I've tried much more expensive solo-TMs that didn't work half as well as this one! I think this is HG for sure.

This is a great tinted moisturizer that is kind to my sensitive, moody complexion. It's light, nourishing, and leaves my skin with a beautiful dewy glow that I really love in the cooler weather. I use my PF pressed mineral powder or MAC MSF natural lightly over it so the glow comes through without the shine. I really like the concealer as well, it's not super creamy, but covers under-eye circles and imperfections nicely. Overall, a great TM/concealer combo with very clever packaging.

Update - I still really like this after several weeks of use, but find myself going through the 1 oz tube rather quickly ($30 a tube - ouch!). I purchased the Tarte Smooth Operator TM & like it a bit better. Check out my review:)

I absolutely love this product. The shade "Bare" is a perfect match for my NC 25 complexion. The tinted moisturizer evens out my skintone and actually manages to somewhat blur away some of my blemishes with the help of light diffusers. It wears well by itself and even better over a primer (like Tarte's Clean Slate) or my Shiseido Control Color. And the concealer is amazing! I thought it would be dry (from the looks of it in the tube), but it's not. In my experience, it works equally well under the eyes and over blemishes.

My only complaint about this product is the price: $30 for a smallish tube. I wouldn't mind so much except I found that the concealer went pretty quickly. Granted, my skin is terrible, but the concealer bullet is also pretty small. I'd love to be able to buy the concealer separately. With all that said, I will definitely buy this again.

NOTE: There seems to be two formulations for this TM, one with glitter and another without. This review is for the TM with no glitter.

Gosh, a tinted moisturizer that makes my skin look great and clears my skin?! I have oily skin that I think is a NW35 (do not like Mac foundations so I haven't checked my color in years!) and I use No. 2. The tm comes in a pretty small tube with a rollerball type concealor in the cap. I believe that despite the small amount, the tube will last as long as any other 50 ml tm because it's slightly thicker and it takes a few small dots to cover my entire face.

The coverage is, I would say medium. It covers redness and unevenness but is not enough for a blemish. The finish is SO gorgeous. It gives me that lit-from-within glow without any trace of glitter or shimmer. I try to avoid my cheek area because too much of this can make me look oily, but load it up on my cheekbones. I have gone for 18 hours without any sign of it budging, so there's the staying power for you!

As for the concealor, it is perfect for blemishes. It glides on so smoothly and never cakes. It's too cool-toned to cover my dark circles completely, but I find it brightens the eye area when I use it underneath my concealor.

And the best part about this tm is that a week after I started using it, all my blemishes disappeared and none have appeared since. I haven't had a single spot in a month and my pores are completely clear. I believe it's the retinyl palmitate. This is my dream tm and I will be buying it for as long as they make it!
