After reading an abundance of glowing MUA reviews, I decided to give Pixi Illuminating Tint & Conceal a try and bought it at Target (for $30 - ouch!). It sounded pretty cool - a tinted moisturizer that covers unevenness, leaves you looking "dewy," and comes with its own built-in concealer on the end. But let's just cut to the chase: I was majorly disappointed, and am now kicking myself for buying expensive makeup at Target, where the return policy sucks.
The good: the concealer ROCKS. I was surprised by how much I liked it. I tried applying it with a brush, with my finger, and even by applying the little ball of solid concealer directly to my face and then blending it in with my finger. However I applied it, I loved the results. It didn't emphasize dry spots, sink into lines under my eyes, melt off, rub off, or anything else undesirable. It's just a good concealer. If Pixi were to sell the concealer separately in stick form, I'd definitely buy it. Additionally, the coverage on the tinted moisturizer was impressive, though I'd consider it more of a light foundation than a tinted moisturizer due to the extra coverage. The color match on shade No. 1 was good for my skin, which is impressive for a drugstore product with only three shades.
The tinted moisturizer had good lasting power, too, but given how much I disliked it, I'm not even going to pretend I see that as a plus. However, I do think this makes for a great cheekbone highlighter, so if you happen to be on the market for a new concealer and highlighter, it might be worth your consideration. Maybe.
