Review & Swatchfest: Pixi Illuminating Tint & Conceal

Pixi Illuminating Tint & Conceal
In case you thought the BB craze was over, think again! The Pixi Tint & Conceal claims to be one of the first of it's kind in a pre-BB world (a.k.a. 2003). With Aloe Vera, Vitamin E, and Vitamin C, the Tint & Conceal moisturizes, acts as a sunscreen, and as a foundation with a concealer to boot! The only thing it's explicitly missing is the claim to act as part of a skin care regimen.

Those who like to keep the products they use on a daily basis at the ready will love the packaging. The tinted moisturizer comes in a tube with the solid concealer in a done shaped on the cap. The dome shape is perfect for direct application to the under eye area and the texture is creamy enough to do so. While the tint supposedly dries to a powder finish, I found that it left my skin dewy (in the way that a moisturizer will) relative to other, more matte foundations I  have. I love the finish, but those with oily skin might want to set it with a translucent powder. The coverage was a little heavier than a typical tinted moisturizer, but not nearly as heavy as a full-coverage foundation. Those who are afraid of tinted moisturizers for their sheer coverage, but still want a barely-there feel will love this. The concealer is smooth and creamy but has enough coverage and staying power to cover moderate dark circles all day. I didn't notice any fading or running at the end of the day, even when left unset.

Considering how well each product performs and that you get two products for the price of one, the $30 price tag is very reasonable. Four colors make this line wearable for skin tones that range from fair to medium dark. Very fair and deep complexions might have trouble finding the right shade for them.

If the $30 price tag still seems too steep, Making Up the Midwest readers get 25% off their entire purchase until November 20th! Just use code: piximidwest at checkout.
