I'm finally back from vacation! I had a lot of fun and I was sad for it to end, but I'm happy that I can get back to blogging. Today I have a review of the Pixi Correction Concentrate in Brightening Peach ($15) from Target that I bought a while ago in my November Target & Lush Haul. This product also made it on to my December Favorites and with good reason. I purchased this product hoping that it would be a dupe for my much loved Bobbi Brown Corrector in Bisque ($23), and to my joy it is.
This product works exactly like the Bobbi Brown Corrector in that it is meant to correct the appearance of dark circles; the peach tone of this creamy concealer neutralizes the bluish-purple color. I definitely notice my under eye area looking much brighter after applying this product, and it's almost as if I don't have any dark circles at all. In terms of correcting any dark circles, this product works just as well as Bobbi Brown's.
The texture of the product is very creamy and slightly tacky so you should probably set it with a setting powder or a stick concealer on top. I like to use my bareMinerals READY SPF 15 Touch Up Veil in Transluscent ($22) or my Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer ($70). It's very moisturizing and doesn't cake up in any fine lines around your eyes and according to its product description on Target, it has vitamins C and E to nourish and protect your skin and vitamin A and rose-hip extract for anti-aging and promotion of elasticity.
This corrector stays put all day, especially with the help of a setting powder or a concealer, and doesn't fade. I think I may continue to purchase this product instead of the Bobbi Brown Corrector because it's cheaper in price but I sacrifice nothing in quality. Everything from the consistency to the performance equals that of the more expensive Bobbi Brown version, the only difference being that the Bobbi Brown Corrector in Bisque is somewhat lighter, but you can use a brightening concealer if you must brighten up under your eyes even more. However, while it is a drugstore product, the Pixi Correction Concentrate is still fairly pricey at $15 but it's definitely not as pricey as $23. So if you can afford the extra $8, I'd go for the Bobbi Brown, but if you're looking to save some money without sacrificing quality then go for the Pixi.
