Layering my mascaras is something I’ve been doing for year. YEARS! My lashes are naturally curly so I tend to look for length and mega volume. Like Goldilocks before me, I’m always searching for just the right one (although I have to say I think I found it)
When I received this package from Pixi Beauty in the mail, I was pretty excited. Not only did it come at just the right time (I was in need of a new mascara) but they sent me options. Prior to this, I’ve never tried Pixi’s mascara offerings.
Below are the mascaras they sent me and a quick overview:
Black Lacquer Lash Primer ($15) preps lashes to maximize volume. I used this and didn’t se a dramatic difference in my lashes.
Lengthy Fiber Mascara ($16) enhances & elongates lashes with fibers for a feathered, lush lash effect. I tried using this several times and hated it. To be fair, I’m not really a fan of fiber mascaras but I felt like this formula was too dry. The wand was literally tugging on my lashes and I did not see any lengthening on my lashes.
Lash Booster ($15) a do-it-all mascara that curls, defines, lengthens and thickens lashes. A good mascara but not great. It gives lashes a very natural look. Compared to other mascaras, like Maybelline’s Push Up Drama or the Lash Sensational, I don’t find myself reaching for this. I do like the blackened blue color as it’s an unexpected twist.
Lower Lash Mascara ($11) has a specialized slim brush with short bristles that coats lower & hard-to-reach small lashes. Oh how I wish I had prominent lower lashes!! The wand on this mascara is super small and great for separating the lower lashes. Since I don’t have lower lashes (or a lot of them), I use this mascara to reach the inner and hard to reach lashes. I also like to use this when I want to blend my false lashes with natural ones.
Do you need all of the above? No. I would recommend a cocktail of the Lash Booster and Lower Lash Mascara if you’re a fan of Pixi. If not, skip the Lash Booster and grab the Maybelline options to layer with the Lower Lash Mascara. Pixi by Petra is available at Target.
