Pixi Undercover Crayon ($14) is a new retractable concealer pencil that’s available in four shade selections which launched for the Summer 2015 season. As a fan of Pixi Correction Concentrate and Pixi Concealing Concentrate and and an overall concealer junkie I was excited to give the new Undercover Crayon a whirl.
I haven’t actually tried any of the color variations as of yet as they do have a fair to warm shade selection! I did however, try out the Perk Up Peach shade which is a corrector of sorts in a soft peach shade that can neutralize and brighten up tired eyes.
Does it work?
I recently picked up Sugar Blend Full Coverage Cream Concealer ($10) online at Kohl’s as a completely random purchase! I was having a little case of nostalgia when I purchased this as one of my first Sephora experiences many, many, many years ago was a Sugar Cosmetics one.
Yes, true story, Sephora used to carry the entire Sugar Cosmetics range. At the time it seemed like the height of awesomeness and I still remember how crazy excited I was about their Sweet Cheeks Baked Blushes! That seems like literally centuries ago!
None the less it’s nice to see that some variation of Sugar is still alive and kicking (and at as local as your neighborhood Kohl’s).
Hard Candy Sheer Envy Eye Brightening Concealer ($6) is one I can use at the moment after one too many late nights and hey, for $6 bucks maybe it’ll replace my $42 YSL Touche Eclat. Uh yeah, that’s not going to happen but a girl can dream.
Hard Candy Sheer Envy Eye Brightening Concealer feels like a rerun in my makeup life as I have this strong sense of deja vu about it. It seems like something Hard Candy released in another life but repackaged?! I’m not sure why I feel that way but yeah…!
Take a look!
Why does Physicians Formula Super CC Color Correction + Care Instant Blurring CC Eye Cream ($12.99) have such a bloody long name? Holy cow!
Physicians Formula Super CC Color Correction + Care Instant Blurring CC Eye Cream is a new single shade (Light/Medium) color correcting eye cream that promises to blur wrinkles, fine lines, dark circles, crow’s feet, puffiness, imperfections, crepey lids, sagging, and signs of fatigue.
Yup, another very over marketed product that excels at none of what it promises.
The NYX Conceal Correct Contour Palette ($11.99) is a new cream concealer slash contouring palette that launched for Spring 2015.
You might notice that the NYX Conceal Correct Contour Palette looks a lot like MAC Studio Conceal and Correct Palette. On many levels, the NYX Conceal Correct Contour Palette is just as good as MAC’s version as the formulas are a lot alike however, I find NYX has a creamier, more emollient texture where as MAC’s formula is a little denser.
