Pixi is really rocking the mid-priced beauty segment lately. Following the release of its superbly stunning MatteLustre lipsticks (reviewed here) comes the Natural Contour Powder Shape & Shadow ($20, 8.16 g/ 0.28 oz), a silky matte powder designed for the contour-loving generation. Throw in some old-time favorites, Concealing Concentrate (Adaptable Beige) and Correction Concealer (Brightening Peach), our makeup menu is looking rad!

Sold in one neutral shade, this powder turned out to be a good match for my medium skin tone. Applied light-handedly and reapplied accordingly, it rendered a desirable dimension to my otherwise dull-looking complexion. I’m not really into contouring so I use it primarily as a bronzer, which for the most part, is a routine I embrace season after season. Worn over foundation, it did not oxidize or turn orangey the entire time I was wearing it (8 hrs for the record). The plastic case is sturdy enough for travel and the addition of mirror is always a plus.

Tired and dark under eyes remain to be the bane of my existence. If not for mini-miracles a.k.a concealers, drab to fab transformation ain’t happening. Pixi offers two solutions to us ladies, whether sleep-deprived or not: Correction Concealer in Brightening Peach ($12, 3g/0.1 oz) is a relatively thick corrective concealer which claims to erase annoying dark circles. Concealing Concentrate in Adaptable Beige ($12, 2g/0. 07 oz) is a matte concealer you can use to cover up acne marks, discoloration and the like. The lack of shade selection presents a problem because while they are made to adapt to one’s skin tone, what works for Jane may not for Lisa. As a side note, if you have dry skin, please moisturize your under eyes first before applying either one because I find that it tends to cake and emphasize lines.

    Your cheekbones look insanely gorgeous here. I have to check out this line and see if I can get the same definition with them.

    You look beautiful, as always! The sculpting powder looks intense on my lighter skintone, but the shade is so pretty! I'm still working with the concealer, but I love the corrector!

    I love Brightening Peach and use it often but always with an eye cream. The products make a big difference on you.

    That sculpting powder was created for you, wasn't it?

    I've heard lots of great things about that Brightening Peach concealer. I'll have to look out for it!

    You look gorgeous! I keep passing this brand, but I think it's time I take a closer look at it. 🙂

    The bronzing powder looks really good on you! It looks a tad too red on me, I'm wondering if I can maybe make it work as a blush instead.

  15. October 8, 2015 / 11:03 pm

    The peach corrector definitely brightens well on you. I love the effect. I need to find how to get this brand here, as we don't have Target.

    The brightening peach for sure made a difference.
