New In: Pixi Lash Primer + Mascara

Pixi is hands down one of my favourite skincare brands (stay tuned for some skincare reviews in the coming weeks!) - I've previously written about their legendary Glow Tonic! Up until recently I hadn't tried any of the brands coloured cosmetics but have now made up for that by trying some of their new releases for spring / summer. If you are looking for a mascara, this review is for you!

Unfortunately for me I was not blessed with great lashes. I have all the problems... my lashes are short, straight and not particularly full and all this has made me quite a picky mascara wearer but I have to say I did really enjoy using this combo!

PIXI Black Laquer Lash Primer* (€20)

New In: Pixi Lash Primer + Mascara

First up, the primer. I generally think lash primers are a bit of a faff but find that this one is quite different! For a start, it's jet black and can be used as a stand alone mascara (for those no makeup looks). It's not an essential step but I treat it like the first coat of my mascara. It gives me that much needed volume and preps the lashes for the weight of a heavier mascara I use for my second coat. It really helps my lashes not to droop and is also packed with lovely ingredients such as formula vitamins A, C and panthenol to help keep lashes in decent condition.

PIXI Lengthy Fiber Mascara* (€21)

This one is definitely quite a full on fiber mascara that will make your lashes longer, waaay longer! I don't think I would use it on it's own on my lashes as this mascara gives a lot of length but not that much volume so I need something underneath (you may not need that layer if your lashes are naturally full). I love the brush that comes with this mascara - it's a good old traditional mascara brush that makes it so much easier to avoid clumping. Again the formulation is full of good stuff: vitamin E, panthenol, and chamomile extract are added to strengthen and protect the lashes.

If you are on the lookout for new mascara these are definitely worth checking out! If your lashes are good you may not need both products but for me these two are the dream team and I love using them together.

PIXI makeup is available from Cloud10 Beauty & in the Marks & Spencer Beauty Hall.

Have you ever tried any of the PIXI makeup?
