Pixi Mascara Review

The products in Mascara Layering With Pixi By Petra Mascara were sent to me for editorial consideration. Affiliate links which benefit this site may be included. All opinions are 100% my own.

For the longest time I had gorgeous, long lashes that never needed a coat of mascara to touch the inside of my glasses lens (yes, I used to wear glasses). Then as I got older I noticed they weren't quite as long as they used to be so I tried everything to get them to go back to being as long and luxurious as they once were. While eyelash extensions are all the rage right now, they definitely are not for me. Don't get me wrong, who doesn't love the look of eyelash extensions, but I am not one who is able to sit in a chair for 3 hours while having them applied and when it comes to maintenance I am just about as low maintenance as they come. Comb them every day, be gentle when removing eye makeup, don't get them wet for 24 hours? Yeah, not happening. 
It's as if Pixi Beauty could read my mind because when I opened my Pixi Beauty Box I was delighted to see their Mascara Layering collection for me to try out! Included in the super cute box was:

Pixi Mascara Review
  • The Black Lacquer Lash Primer ($15): This primer is supposed to plump, protect and prime lashes. Most primers I've used are white but this one is actually black so I've used it without mascara on days when I'm just out running errands and wanted a little extra boost to my lashes without anything too noticeable. 
  • The Lash Booster ($15): This is supposed to be a a do-it-all mascara that curls, defines, lengthens and thickens lashes with a glossy waterproof finish.  Personally I didn't find that it added too much length but it definitely added a lot of volume to my lashes and it is definitely waterproof! My eyes tend to water throughout the day and I didn't have a bit of flaking or smearing with this. 
  • The Lengthy Fiber Mascara ($16): This enhances & elongates lashes with fibers for a feathered, lush lash effect. To be honest, this was the product I was most hesitant about when I opened the box. I'm usually not a huge fiber mascara fan but I figured I'd give it a try. Initially I hated it, it was a bit dry for my taste but I wanted to be fair so I gave it another shot and this time I layered over another mascara and I was much more pleased with the results. 
  • The Lower Lash Mascara ($11): This has a specialized slim brush with short bristles effortlessly coats lower & hard-to-reach small lashes. I had never put mascara on my lower lashes before so this was new to me. I loved how small the brush and wand was, it made it super easy to use and the design of the brush really separated my lower lashes. It was great when I didn't want to wear eyeliner and lasted all day without smudging. Definitely something I will be using on a more regular basis!
Pixi Mascara Review
 For me, using all of these on a daily basis would be completely overkill. I'm all about those long, luxurious lashes but I'm also all about simplicity and low maintenance. The primer wasn't enough to make me want to stop buying my regular primer and while I did like the look of the Lengthy Fiber Mascara layered over another mascara I can't say I'd definitely run out any buy it however the other two products are something I would definitely purchase again! The Lower Lash Mascara is definitely a game changer for me. Have you tried any of these products? If so, what did you think?

  1. The lower lash mascara sounds interesting, I've never tried something like that before.

  2. I rarely put mascara on my lower lashes before because it flakes and I always end up with raccoon eyes, even if the mascara is waterproof! My favorite mascara right now is the L'oreal Paris Voluminous Superstar, there's a primer on one end and a mascara on the other. It really holds a curl in your lashes! Plus, I got it for 3 bucks at CVS on a huge sale!

  3. I haven't tried these, but they look fun! I love using different mascaras for different areas. Especially the lower lashes!

  4. I will have to try these out. I have really long eyelashes, but they tend to break off easily leaving a large hole in my lashes which is pretty funny looking.

  9. I just tried Pixi products for the first time a few months ago and really liked them! I have the lower lash mascara too and never knew there was such a thing?! I don't typically wear mascara on my lower lashes either, but I love how easy it is to apply with this wand!

  11. They all sound intriguing! I would most probably try the Lash Booster and the lower lash mascara the most because they sound more my avenue. I've never really put mascara on my lower lashes, but the wand makes it look possible so I'm definitely curious! I'm not a huge mascara person, but have started to use it more going out and stuff like that. Thanks for your honest review :)!

  17. I feel the same way about my lashes. They need some help looking full. I have a Pixi toner I love, but I have never used their makeup. I use Tarte for my lashes, and love it but it is pricey for what it is...I need to try this with the primer!

  18. I can't imagine myself layering all of these every single day. But I'd love to try the lower lash mascara!

  20. i'm jealous of how long your lashes used to be lol. i am not a fan of fiber mascaras, and i'm definitely not one to get eyelash extensions either. i like better than sex for big long lashes, but definitely not every day.

  21. I need to look into that lower lash primer! Great reviews, girl.

  23. Oops my previous comment posted accidentally too soon. Nice set to test out! I recently caught on to Pixi products and love their rose oil. Couldn't agree more about eyelash extensions and fake lashes are always a disaster when I try to put them on.

  24. I liiiive for eyelash primer! I find it not only helps your lashes stand out more, but it helps it wash off more gently, too. I'm gonna have to try that one... I'm like you - I've mostly seen white!
