My Top 3 Fave : Under Eye Corrector

I am saying this & I am saying this again. I have dark circles problem & before I thought just applying an ordinary concealer is enough but I was wrong. It always end up sinking into fine lines or being very cake-y after setting it with powder or worse having a raccoon eye which ugh... doesn't look good. When I learned about applying corrector, I thought it would just be the same result like before but boy, I was wrong. I got a brighter complexion as if I had a wonderful beauty rest!  
Here are my Top 3 Fave Corrector - all drugstore! Which I have done each one of them a blog post. Just click the name of the corrector.






All of the 3 correctors have the same peachy shade but the SkinFood leans more lighter undertone. While Pixi & City Color leans more peachy shade but City Color is a slight bit darker.

Do watch out for more of my Top Fave :) Thank you for reading my post.

Pixi Correction Concentrate in Brightening Peach Swatches & Review

For all of you who have been following my blog posts must be aware that I've been talking about correctors probably because one of my problem are my dark circles. One of the correctors I've been talking about is the Pixi Correction Concentrate in Brightening Peach. Peachy color corrector is a perfect shade to counteract blue circles. 


Packaging ; It comes in a small glassy jar with a green plastic with a cute pixie fairy shape.


As you can see there's a deep dent on it, been using this a lot. I pre-order this from a seller that bought straight from the US that's why I've been using this sparingly but I was glad that now it's available here. Now, I don't have to worry if I have hit pan on this *so happy*


Net Weight : 3 g / 0.1 oz.




Overall : This is a good peachy corrector though need to apply it little by little with its thick cream. This shade is good for every skin tone, once I applied it, I found a great brightening result on my dark under eyes. 

Have you tried this corrector? What do you think?

Thank you for stopping by.

SkinFood Salmon Brightening Eye Cream Review

Corrector plays a major part in the steps of doing makeup because, from the word, it corrects the uneven skin tone of an individual. It cancels out discoloration in your face that depends on what color you want to cancel out. There are a lot of beauty brands that sells corrector concealers one of them (which is one of my wishlist) that started it all is the Bobbi Brown Corrector. But I must admit, I am one of those person which doesn't want to spend much money just to buy a concealer, it's not yet on my price point. Thankfully, there are other drugstore brands that sells their own version of correctors & one of them is SkinFood which is a Korean brand that is available pretty much in every malls here in the Philippines. 
Before I bought this, I Googled for reviews & swatches & most reviews said that this is an alternative to Pixi Correction Concentrate corrector that is not yet available here that I was itching to buy during that time. 


Packaging : It comes in a small glass like jar with a gold color lid.












The shade leans more of a lighter peach. I did a comparison with Pixi Correction Concentrate, you can check my swatches of the two in this post.

Overall, I love this product. It's creamy & the right shade for my skintone & I believe to all skintone. Thick enough but not too thick to sink into fine lines. A little goes a long way with this product. 

So, did you try this corrector? What do you think?

Thanks for dropping by!

Dupes Galore : Pixi vs Skinfood

Hi, Beauty Gurlz! Here's another post on dupes between two under eye correctors. If you have been following my blog posts you'll see that the two products that I am discussing here are also in my top 3 Fave eye correctors hahaha.

Pixi correction concentrate in brightening peach is one of a drugstore eye corrector product that's been a hype in the States & can be bought at Target. Though it's a little pricey for a drugstore product but still a lot cheaper & affordable compared to high end peachy corrector. It has a very peachy shade that really upon applying on your dark under eye it knocks out those blue veins. 


The Skinfood Salmon Dark Circle is also peachy under eye corrector that's available in the Asian countries. From the word "salmon" you might already have an idea that this is no ordinary concealer but a color corrector concealer that also deals with dark under eye circle. If you searched on google, a lot of bloggers say that this is a dupe for the Pixi corrector - since this is not available before. 


On the swatches above you will see them side by side. On the left side is the Skinfood Salmon concealer which is more yellow undertone while on the right is the Pixi corrector which is more of an orange undertone.  But if you look at them separately, both of them have this peachy-ness shades but on side by side you will see closely.

So, there you have it guys. Hope my blog post helps.

Thanks guys for dropping by!

City Color Photo Chic Dark Spot Corrector

A lot of people have a problem with dark undereye, I'm one of those people. When I started doing makeup and learning about the tips and tricks, one of the main reason is to learn how to brighten your undereye. I've learned that you need a corrector for your dark circles. Now, woah?! What's a corrector. That's my reaction when I first learned about it. From the word itself it means that it corrects or balances the unbalance color of your face. There are a tons of correctors available from high end to drugstore correctors whether cream or liquid textures. Then, I heard a lot of beauty gurus rave about a certain drugstore corrector and I was happy to have found this little gem in Purebeauty at Trinoma which was on sale at that time. I quickly snatched it and immediately tried it on when I got home.

City Color Photo Chic Dark Spot Corrector  

From the City Color website it says : is a peach tinted concealer used to minimize the appearance of dark spots and circles. The thick formula provides long lasting coverage that brightens undereye darkness to a healthy, fresh and rested appearance.



Packaging : a small jar with black cap.


The cap have a printed pink heart shapein the middle of the black cap.


Underneath the jar, you would see name of the product and the usage as well as the net weight.


The silver colored box lists the ingredients and the cruelty free logo which means it's not tested on animals - good to know that. I tried putting the jar inside the box but the jar was way big on the box which to see the overall packaging it's kind of space consuming don't you think?


Upon opening the cap, you would see another lid that separates the product which I think is helpful in case you didn't closed the cap tightly to prevent from being exposed to the air.




You might think this is in dark shade because of the peachy coloredbut upon swatching it's actually not and this shade is good for every light to medium skin tone.



See how my dark undereye brightens upon applying it and blended it. City Color corrector applied on my right eye (your left) and on my left eye (your right) without application. 

Final thoughts : 
I love how it brightens my eye and for a while I look so refreshed as if I had a long beauty rest. It's so creamy but do be careful not to put too much because it tends to get into the lines. I suggest the best way to apply it is by using your ring fingers and blend it as well. I tested it by applying it on for a whole day without setting it with a powder and I see it fades after 5 to 6 hours. I guess it will last longer if you set it with a powder.


Disclaimer : I paid for this product and I am not affiliated with this company.

Where to buy : Amazon, Ebay, Purebeauty, City Colors website and other websites that are distributors of city colors cosmetics.

Would I repurchase it? : Absolutely YES!

Peppermint Crinkles' Approval : 4.5/5
