Waking up my tired eyes, story of my life people.
Feels like my eyes are always extra puffy in the AM…correct that, one of my eyes has baggage that I carry my lunch to work in. No but seriously, true story, one of my eyes always has a bit of puff going and I thank the makeup Gods daily for concealer to hide that particularly woe along with finer lines, darkness, etc….
Pixi WakeUp Concealer is a brand new concealer releasing with the Pixi Beauty Fall 2011 Collection that promises airbrushed results and buildable coverage for camflouaging all those pesky under eye problems.
Does it do the trick?
A new concealer from Pixi that promises an airbrushed finish with a satiny, smooth finish that corrects redness, dark circles, and other skin woes.
This comes in Pixi’s cute light green packaging. It’s a click style pen with little flowers on the tube. I’m a such a sucker for Pixi’s packaging as it’s basic but still very sweet. I like click pen concealers since they travel so easily and just make application easier thanks to the applicator brush.
Pixi Wakeup Concealer has a thick, creamy formula that blends out easily however I can’t really speak for its concealing powers since the shade I got, Cream, was way too light. I will say it appears quite pigmented to me and the formula is very moisturizing. I went ahead and applied under my eyes and sat around in it while I was working on some stuff at home and the formula seems to hold strong without creasing into fine lines.
Sadly, the concealer only comes in three shades and Pixi does normally range on the lighter, fairer side of the fence which is great if you suit such a tone but not so fab if you’re darker or more olive.
I have no rants or complains about the formula and I think I’ll go ahead and indulge in the next or last shade on my next trip to Target as I liked the overall texture of the concealer. At that time, I’ll definitely do a re-review of this.
Only three shades to choose from does make it hard to find a good match for many skin tones.
- Those seeking a fair, light shade of concealer (Pixi Beauty is your girl if you’re of the fairer tone).
- Those seeking an easy to travel with concealer.
- Those who like extra creamy, moisturizing concealers.
- Those with olive or darker skin types (with only three shades to choose from this won’t fit many darker skin types).
With my little experience with the product I’m going to lean in and say so far I like it but it needs alot more testing in my shade before I fully decide if it’s a love or not. Cream is very, very light and didn’t work out so well for me so I wasn’t sure if my eyes were looking any better for wear with this in place. But I do look forward to checking these out at Target to see if the middle or last shade fits my tone.
Anyone try it?
