Review: Pixi Illuminating Tint & Conceal


I have wanted this product for a while, ever since I saw Sam from Pixiwoo use it in one of her tutorials. It is essentially a tinted moisturiser but it also includes a concealer.

What Pixi say:
This multipurpose beautifier does triple duty, acting as your moisturizer, sunscreen, and luminizer to provide sheer coverage that makes skin appear flawless & lit from within

Keep your skin flawless,
Can be layered for extra coverage

The shades are highlighted with pearlized minerals for a youthful glow Take off the clear lid to reveal the full coverage concealer, a crème-to-powder formula that masks imperfections with a skin-loving combination of Aloe Vera, Vitamin E and Vitamin C

Illuminating tinted moisturizer contains a variety of constituents and building blocks with revitalizing, regenerating and immune-boosting qualities that are highly valued in skin care

Revitalizes tired lifeless skin
Protects and fights premature aging of skin
Titanium & Zinc Dioxide (SPF 20): Natural minerals with SPF factor

Illuminating concealer protects skin cells from ultraviolet light, pollution and other elements that produce cell-damaging free radicals
Vitamin A a Powerful anti-aging ingredient
Aloe Vera soothing and healing ancient skin care ingredient
Vitamin C Anti-aging free-radical fighter

How to use it:
  • The tinted moisturiser: apply a coin size amount of the product to the centre of the face and blend outwards with fingers, alternatively you could use a brush to apply the product to the skin.
  • The concealer: dot it on the areas required and blend out with a clean finger (using a tapping motion) or a concealer brush.


What I think:

This is definitely the best tinted moisturiser that I have ever used, it gives a fairly good coverage, not enough to cover blemishes but that's where the concealer comes into play. It leaves the skin feeling really smooth and hydrated all day, which is good considering it's now winter! The moisturiser does have a tiny bit of shimmer in to give the glowy effect, but this does not make you look like a glitterball, it just gives a dewy finish on the skin.

Pros
  • It is a 3 in 1 product - tinted moisturiser - concealer - sunscreen (it has an spf of 20)
  • It makes your skin feel nice and soft
  • It gives good coverage for a tinted moisturiser, and the product is buildable too
  • It's quick to apply 
  • I feel like it's actually doing my skin some good, and it's nice to have a rest from heavy foundations
Cons
  • The price - RRP around £20
  • The concealer needs to be warmed up a bit before applying it or it can be a bit cakey
  • There are only 3 shades available - Light Glow/Bare Glow/Nude Glow

Here are some pictures:



I would definitely recommend this product, it is a good year round tinted moisturiser. It is available to purchase from Boots (for £1.50 less than I paid from ASOS!)
