Review: Pixi Lash Booster Mascara

12 Sep

The Pixi Lash Booster Mascara was in my August 2013 Ipsy Glam Bag.

From Pixi:

 What it is formulated to do:

This unique mascara truly boosts your lashes, giving them a “push-up” effect that lasts all day. The dense, rich formula ensures that lashes are coated with maximum pigment, for long-lasting full colour. The cone-shaped brush coats each lash evenly for the ultimate smudge-free, waterproof lash & eye definition. Available in intense eye-opening shades, including the revolutionary “blackest blue” that awakens the eyes and makes the whites of the eyes appear whiter.

Beneficial ingredients and what they do:

  • Vitamin E nourishes skin Carnauba wax is naturally emollient
  • Microcrystalline wax nourishes & ensures easy application
  • Simethicone provides a smooth glide

My review :

WOW, is this thing waterproof.  As you may know I have grossly greasy eyelids and most mascaras smudge on me, which is why I favor the waterproof formulas.

At first, I didn’t know this was a waterproof formula, but I was surprised that it didn’t budge all day.  WIN.  Also, it is less waxy than other waterproof mascaras.  This is another reason why I didn’t realize it was.

My lashes are curly and hardly fall, so I can’t really speak to it’s ability to hold a curl, especially if you have straight lashes.  I can say that the formula is really light, so it didn’t weight my lashes down.

I wasn’t able to get a lot of volume with this, but this is not a volumizing formula.  If you want big lashes, go talk to Benefit or MAC.

Overall, this is a great mascara for every day wear.  It doesn’t clump, smear, smudge, flake off.

Also, the color, Blackest Black is seriously black.  Think ink, think tar, think really freaking black.

They have a Blackest Blue shade, which promises to make the whites of your eyes appear whiter.  I am probably going to get this, since I am becoming obsessed with bright whites…and not the laundry kind.

Have you tried Pixi?  Do you like it?
