Pixi Correction Concentrate Review

 Pixi's much buzzed about Correction Concentrate is a "highly pigmented correcting concealer that instantly erases darkness, softens, and blurs lines. Skin immediately looks fresh, rested, bright, and youthful. This ultimate 'good night's sleep in a jar' camouflage cream is correction perfection in a pot." This tone corrector contains "Vitamin E to nourish and protect, Vitamin C to brighten and revitalize, Vitamin A for an anti-aging effect, and rose hip extract for it's cell regenerating and skin elasticity boosting properties." Pixi is a brand that really appeals to me, but I've always felt like the products were overpriced. Luckily, Correction Concentrate is one of the brand's most affordable products, retailing for $15 for 3g (.1 oz) of product. Pixi is exclusively available in Target, as well as the brand's website. I bought this concealer for myself as a birthday goody after hearing my favorite YouTuber EmilyNoel 83 rave about it and compare it to pricey products like Benefit's Erase Paste and Bobbi Brown's Corrector. Pixi products are cruelty free. The Correction Concentrate was made in China.

 Packaging for the entire Pixi line is gorgeous, the brand's signature color is light green, you'll know that if you've ever seen the brand's display in Target. Correction Concentrate comes in a light green cardboard box that offer the Pixi logo and product name on the front. The back of the box offers a product description. The ingredient list can be found on a side of the box. The concealer it's self comes in a small glass jar topped with a green cap. The cap features a gold pixie along with the Pixi logo. Cute, but simple, with an eye catching green theme, there's no mistaking a Pixi product.
 Pixi's Correction Concentrate comes in one shade; Brightening Peach. Why does Pixi's Correction Concentrate have such a strong pinky peach tone? It's a matter of color theory, a subject I don't feel experienced enough to explain at length, but I'll try to sum it up. Under eye circles are typically blue or purple toned. Orangey shades are considered the 'opposite' of blue on a color wheel. When orange and blue tones are mixed they cancel each other out.  It's kinda like math, but with colors, I guess.
 Pixi's Correction Concentrate has a thick, almost pasty consistency, you need to warm it up with the warmth of your fingers to melt it into a creamier consistency. Once its warmed up this concealer is easy to pat on to the under eye area. The bright peachy tone may look a little bit crazy at first, but don't panic, just keep patting! Soon enough Pixi's corrector will blend almost all the way in. Though Petra Strand, the Swedish makeup artist behind Pixi describes the coverage of Correction Concentrate as "full", I feel like it sound be used with a regular under eye concealer as well to help diffuse what's left of the peachy tone. This correcting concealer does just what it promises, it just about completely erases mild to moderate under eye circles. The results are way better than I expected! Because Correction Concentrate is on the pastier side, I suggest avoiding powder in areas where you've applied this corrector, otherwise you'll end up with a cakey texture. I don't feel like Pixi's under eye concealer's epic results last all day, after several hours it can settle into fine lines, which is almost as unappealing as dark circles.
[do you see any circles?]
Pixi's Correction Concentrate is great, I'm thoroughly impressed! I was really nervous about investing $15 in a corrective concealer, but it's proved to be worth the money! I've been using it along with Benefit's It's Potent! Eye Cream and my under eye area has never looked better. The packaging is really pretty. The texture of the product is great once it's been warmed up, so application is super easy, you just need to tap it inn. The peach tone will neutralize dark circles for most fair to tan skin tones. I highly recommend Pixi's Correction Concentrate concealer if you struggle with under eye circles, this is the cheapest peach/salmon toned corrector I know of and it's totally worth the price. This product will have you bright eyed in no time.
