Pixi Correction Concentrate (Colour Correcting Concealer) Review

Pixi Correction Concentrate - Colour Correcting Concealer

Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

Pixi Correction Concentrate - Colour Correcting Concealer

Today I’m reviewing the Pixi Beauty Correction Concentrate Colour Correcting Concealer that I bought last week and have been testing out daily. It is supposed to be a drugstore dupe for my well-loved Becca Cosmetics Under Eye Brightening Corrector that I’ve been purchasing (and re-purchasing) since 2016. I was looking for a dupe because Becca Cosmetics had announced that they were closing in Fall 2021. Smashbox just announced that they will be releasing both the Under Eye Corrector and the Shimmering Skin Perfector in October. [info in italics taken from the Shoppers Beauty website]

Pixi Correction Concentrate - Colour Correcting Concealer

Highly pigmented, this correction concealer 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.

Pixi Correction Concentrate - Colour Correcting Concealer

Instantly erases dark circles & blends magically into skin tone. Concentrated correction cream instantly neutralizes darkness around eyes or anywhere that needs brightening. Contains vitamins A, C & E and rose hip extract. Paraben free. Not tested on animals.

On the package it says that this is for medium skintones – I didn’t notice this until I got home, and was a little nervous as I’m on the light end of the skintone spectrum! The Pixi Correction Concentrate is a similar peachy salmon shade as the Becca Brightening Corrector, and it works well to blend away my dark circles.

It isn’t as creamy as the Becca, but I always wear eye cream, so it isn’t a problem for me, and I haven’t had any issues with creasing or dryness. I’ve tried applying and blending it out using my fingers, a sponge, with a concealer brush and with a foundation brush – it works well with all application methods that I’ve tried. I think that it is a good budget friendly dupe!

Have you tried this one?

Empties – February 2017

Hello, hello!

Today I have my monthly empties for February. I didn’t finish up as much as I thought I would this month. Sometimes a product just hangs on and takes forever to finish up that last little bit! But I have been really good at sticking to low buy where I have to use things up before buying more.

Empties - February 2017

Skincare Empties:

Empties - February 2017

Just two products. I am SO close to finishing up two facial cleansers, one moisturizer and that Sukin facial mask.

Saje Sensitive Elixir  (Serum) – This worked really well for whenever my skin was going through a super sensitive stage – especially after Photorejuvenation sessions (to be blogged about very soon, as I’m going for my last session this afternoon). Originally reviewed here. I can’t replace it until I finish up a few more serums in my stash, but it is on my wish list.

Pixi Glow Mud Mask* – I got this one in May at last year’s Toronto Generation Beauty event. I mostly only used this for spot masking, so it lasted quite awhile! Originally reviewed here. I would love to try more products from Pixi Beauty, if I manage to find a Pharmaprix (Shoppers Drug Mart in Quebec) that carries the range.

Makeup Empties:

Empties - Feb 2017

Only two of these are actual empties, the rest are trash or expired.

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Mont Blanc: I FINALLY finished it! Original review is here. This is a great foundation, but I won’t be replacing it for awhile as I have a few different ones on my wishlist that I’ve love to try.

Maison Jacynthe Concealer in Light Beige (Anti-cernes 01 Beige Legér)*: This one was nearly finished when the last bit cracked off. Original review is here. I’m not sure if I would purchase a replacement, as I prefer a wand type liquid concealer. Near the end, I found that the concealer had started to get dried out, so it didn’t apply as smoothly as it did when I first started using it.

Tarte Tarteist Lash Paint*: I got this at the Gen Beauty event last year. This one should have been put in an empties post several months ago, but it was lost in my stash. Original review is here. I just did not love this one, so I will not replace it.

Essence the Gel Nail Polish: I love Essence, but I hated this nail polish. It is watery, streaky, and chips incredibly easy. I purchased this at Gen Beauty. I never actually got around to reviewing this one.

I go through my lipstick stash every couple of months and check to see if anything has gone off – my criteria threefold: 1 has the colour gone off? 2. has the texture changed? 3 has the scent changed or gone off? Sadly a few did not pass the test!

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in F-Bomb: Ok, this is my all time fave red lipstick. They don’t even make the Revolution Lipsticks any more! I’ve had this in my stash FOREVER. But they did revive the shade in the new Vice Lipstick line, so I’ll have to check it out to see how the formulation compares. As you can see in the photo on the left, the colour is going off – it almost looks dusty or fuzzy (GROSS).

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Lovelight: This one has started to dry out, and the scent is just starting to go off. I like the shade, but I don’t love it, so I’m not sad about pitching this one.

Urban Decay Super-Saturated High Gloss lip Colour in Adrenaline: This one is also a discontinued product. It had dried out terribly and the scent has gone off. I used to love this pink toned metallic red, but haven’t worn it in a very long time.

Tarte LipSurgence Natural Lip Luster in Buff: I mostly only ever used this one as a lipstick topper. The texture and scent have changed, and I think that the colour has also gone off. I don’t remember the last time that I’ve worn this.

Hair, Bath and Body:

Empties - Feb 2017

Bausch & Lomb Re-Nu Contact Lens Solution: Not my absolute fave contact lens solution, but I love that they make a travel size version. I just got new contacts again (finally), so I’ve been wearing my glasses less often.

Nu World Botanicals Multi-Nutritive Oil in Energy Boost*: I absolutely LOVE this stuff! I use it in the bath, in my hair, on my body after a shower. I want to replace this, but until I use up a few more things in my stash, it is going on my wishlist. Original review is here.

Hask Argan Oil Repairing Conditioner: I finished the shampoo up in the previous month. This is a great shampoo for hair that is dry. I’d like to try more from Hask, but again, until I clear out more of my stash, I won’t be buying any more shampoo or conditioner. Original review is here.

Herban Cowboy For Her, Maximum Protection Deodorant in Love: I just could not finish this one. It really does not work with my body chemistry. At all. It makes me smell worse than if I had skipped deodorant completely. Yuck. Original review is here.

There you have it, all the empties and trash for the month of February. I’m making progress in cutting down the size of my stash, and spending less money.

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤

July Faves (2016)

Hello, hello!

I cannot believe that it is the end of July already! This summer is flying by!

Today I’d like to show you my faves for the month.

Skincare:

Sukin Hydrating Mist Toner – this facial mist is so refreshing and soothing. I use it after I was my face, and during the day whenever I feel that I need a blast of soothing goodness. Especially great during the past two weeks of super hot and humid weather. Reviewed here.

Sukin Purifying Facial Masque – I’ve been multi-masking these days, using this one everywhere except for my nose and chin. Reviewed here.

Pixi Glow Mud Mask – I’ve been using this one on my nose and chin along with the above mentioned Sukin Facial Mask. I’m going to be sad when this one is finished since I haven’t found anywhere that carries Pixi since the closure of Target. Reviewed here. *

NuWorld Botanicals Multi-Nutritive 3-in-1 Oil in Energy Boost – I’ve been using this one a LOT these days, in the bath, or applied after a bath or shower, even in my hair. I just love the scent! It is a definite mood lifter!  Reviewed here. *

Schmidt's Natural Deodorant

Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant – I just reviewed this on Monday, but this is a definite fave. Especially after the hot and humid weather! Best deodorant that I’ve EVER used. Review is here.

Make-up:

ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip in Frick’n’Frack and Dopey. This summer I’ve been all about rose toned lips. Reviewed here and here.

Nyx Ombre Blush in Mauve Me. I’ve been wearing this one a lot, it gives a subtle glow when applied. Reviewed here.

Wet n Wild Coloricon “Bronzer” in Reserve My Cabana. This has been my go-to highlighter nearly every single day this month. I can’t thank Stashy enough for this one! Reviewed here. %

What were your faves this month?

Today I’m reviewing a few skincare products from my Generation Beauty haul.

First up is the Blue Lotus + Seaweed Treatment Sheet Mask from Pur-Lisse. *Gift Bag Swag freebie from Generation Beauty*

Up next is the Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Eye Adore Serum, also from Pur-Lisse. *This was a freebie sample from the Pur-Lisse booth at Generation Beauty*

Blue Lotus eye serum enhanced with active ingredients like French marine plants, Matrixyl 3000 and Haloxyl bring 4x the power against aging in this intensive eye serum. This proven complex work together against wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness, while hydrating and lifting the delicate eye area.

My Experience: This eye cream is super hydrating, and really does help with my seasonal allergy eye puffiness. Most importantly, this did not irritate my sensitive skin. It is a little on the pricy side at $65,  so I don’t know if I would purchase this when my sample is finished, but I really like this one!

The final facial skincare product is the Glow Mud Mask from Pixi Beauty. *Freebie from the Pixi Beauty booth at Generation Beauty*

Stimulate, clarify, and brighten skin with this revitalizing mask. The mineral-rich treatment absorbs oil, draws out impurities, and fights breakouts while giving an energizing boost to the complexion. Kaolin & sea salt purify while ginseng & aloe vera balance.

My Experience: This mask is dark blue, I was so sure that my skin would be stained smurf blue after using it! I’ve been using this as a spot mask on my nose and chin as these areas tend to get a little greasy when the weather first gets hot and my skin freaks out until it adjusts. It doesn’t irritate my super sensitive skin either. I really liked this facial mask.
