Review: Pixi by Petra Illuminating Tint & Conceal in No. 3 Nude Glow

This is the Pixi by Petra Illuminating Tint & Conceal in No. 3 Nude Glow.

The Press Release says: “This multi-purpose beautifier does triple duty, acting as your moisturizer, sunscreen and luminizer to provide sheer coverage that makes skin appear flawless and lit-from-within! Super-hydrating ingredients and protective SPF 20 keep your skin protected. Goes on feather-light, leaves your skin looking naturally radiant, and 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 colour-coordinated, full-coverage concealer – a creme-to-powder formula that masks imperfections while still looking natural.

Beneficial Ingredients:
* Ginkgo biloba extract helps to maintain youthful skin by improving skin circulation
* Vitamin C revitalizes tired, lifeless skin
* Lysine is an amino acid that builds protein in the skin to maintain a youthful skin surface
* Titanium & zinc dioxide are natural minerals that add an SPF of 20
* Vitamina E protects skin cells from ultraviolet light, pollution and other elements that product cell-damaging free radicals
* Vitamin A is a powerful anti-aging ingredient
* Vitamin C acts as an anti-aging free-radical fighter”

First Impressions: I really like Pixi by Petra products, although for only being sold in Target (i.e., being at the same level as a drugstore brand), I do think they are quite expensive. I just bought one of their foundations for $30.00 USD. I might as well have bought one from Sephora, you know? I do think this is quite a unique product, though. It’s a full-size tinted moisturizer and in the cap of the moisturizer is a matching full-coverage concealer. I don’t know if I would be happy paying $30.00 USD for this, but I probably would. . . and just be sad about it :(.

Packaging: I love the packaging on this. As I mentioned above (in the first impressions), I think it’s so cute and so practical.

Scent: No scent, other than the slight smell of sunscreen.

Color/Pigmentation: The color I have seemed a bit too dark for my skin, but mixing it with a bit of moisturizer helped lighten it. It did last for most of the day for me (and I live in AZ), and the color is very nice, not too thick, but it def helps your complexion.

Staying Power: See color/pigmentation.

Details On Mine: I received mine for free to review (though that does not alter my opinions or this review in any way). It is full-size and retails for $30.00 USD. I would repurchase this, just in the next lighter shade as this was a teensy bit too dark for me.

Price/Availability: This is available here and here, as well as Target stores across the Nation. It retails for $30.00 USD.

Other Shades: No. 1 Light Glow, No. 2 Bare Glow, No. 3 Nude Glow, No. 4 Sun Glow.
