Conceal, correct, and contour with Pixi by Petra

There is a saying, ‘you are only as sick as your secrets’. While in general it’s not healthy to have secrets (and goodness knows I have subjected you all to way too many photos of me wearing absolutely no makeup) I have many skin issues that I prefer to keep covered up. Lately my favorite enablers have been the products that Pixi Beauty sent me to test.

Pixi has a great concealer for blemishes and undereye circles, as well as a terrific color corrector that I love for covering up red areas. The Concealing Concentrate in Adaptable Beige ($12) is a small glass pot of neutral beige concealer. The concealer is indeed concentrated, with tons of pigment so you only need a small amount for complete coverag.  My problem with many concealers is they just don’t last…after a few hours, my dark circles are showing. I don’t have that problem with the Concealing Concentrate; it truly lasts all day. It’s waterproof and has a matte finish that doesn’t settle into fine lines. It also has lots of ingredients that skin loves, like vitamins A, C, and E.  My only beef is the packaging. The jar opening is very small, so it’s pretty impossible to use your fingers and even a concealer brush is a challenge. Besides that issue, I think this is a winning concealer. 

The Correction Concentrate in Peach ($12) is very similar. It’s the same formula but in a brightening soft peach shade. Petra says this is “My secret to looking like I’ve had a restful night’s sleep! This dense corrective concealer blends seamlessly into the skin while instantly erasing stubborn darkness.” This is a great option if you have red areas you want to conceal and correct.

I am also a big fan of the Natural Contour Powder ($20). This is a natural looking matte contour powder. While the color looks quite deep, I don’t worry about overdoing it since it sheers out easily and any mistakes can be quickly corrected. The ingredients are great, with peptides, multi-vitamins, aloe vera, super fruit and coffee extracts. Thanks to the aloe vera, this a nice creamy powder that blends in beautifully with skin. It’s a very impressive contour powder.

While keeping secrets isn’t always the healthiest way to go, when it comes to cosmetics I think that secrets are a girl’s best friend. Pixi has some excellent products that are really great for concealing, correcting, and contouring. Be sure to check them out next time you are at Target.  – Lisa

  2. Christy Peeples DuBois says

    I need to definetely try this concealer for under eye circles and blemishes. I don’t always have blemishes but my under eye circles seem to keep getting worse. Thanks for a great review of these great products. Can’t wait to try them.

  3. I really like Pixi products. Have been using an eyebrow powder that is great.

  4. The concealers in the pots look great!

  5. I really need to add some Pixi into my life! I love the hue of that contour powder– it isn’t warm and muddy like so many of them that end up less than flattering on cool-toned people! Those concealers/correctors look really terrific as well! Thanks for the wonderful review, Marcia!

  6. I’ve heard so much about this brand and really want to try their concealer. Everyone raves about it.

  7. It’s been forever since I used Pixi. I’ll have to check these out!

  8. I wish I’d remembered I had these concealers this morning as I was getting ready for work on 3 hours of sleep, lol. Great review, thank you!!

  9. Both of these concealers look great, but I think the brightening peach would be the best for me!

  10. Interesting review. My big problem with under eye correctors and concealers is even if I do get any coverage of my dark circles, after an hour or so, the pigmentation just peters out and they are loud and proud, once again and I’m in front of a mirror, piling more on. #thestruggleisreal

  19. I with they’d bring this brand to a Canadian store (no Targets here, boo!) I definitely need to try the concealers.

  20. Pixi has been releasing some really good products lately, and I definitely need something for these under eye bags.
