Seven Days of Mascara: Pixi Lash Booster Mascara

We're coming up on the end of our Seven Days of Mascara feature. I know it wasn't seven consecutive days, but you know. I do what I can.

This time we've got Pixi Lash Booster Mascara in Blackest Blue. I picked it up only because I wanted a mascara that was the same exact color of my hair, and this one matched it perfectly. I absolutely love the color. That's all well and good, you say, but move along - is it all clumpy and awful?

I am so pleased to say NO. It's not. Thank goodness. Because if I came across one more of those I was going to give up on mascaras altogether.
We've got another good, old-fashioned spooly wand, which I think I might love more than anything, and while it's not fat, it's long. It is easy to hit all those lashes with this brush. And how does it look? It's not clumpy. And while it doesn't go on as thick as I personally like, it sure is buildable. This picture has only two coats.

Now, Pixi isn't the cheapest mascara you can pick up at Target - I paid a whopping $19, which is a lot to me while shopping at Target. However, it's considerably cheaper than what I usually spend at Sephora. But I'm going to be using this one a lot - especially with my Make Up For Ever Lash Fibers as a base. It gives some nice curl and buildable volume, and that's all a girl can really ask for.

Someone asked me recently what sort of camera I was using to take the photos, and I'm embarassed to say that it's just my iPhone 3GS camera. I should have broken out the Canon, but I was just too lazy and/or in a major hurry when I needed photos. I had to make a few adjustments in iPhoto, because my yellow bathroom just threw the whole color balance thing off.

So, did you find any new mascaras to try? I hope I've made it easier for you to wade through the "just pass" items out there. Leave me a note and tell me what you're loving on your lashes right now. I am still in search of that perfect product!

Really? That's pretty good for an iPhone camera. Now I'm wishing I had one for close up shots (I can't take a pic of my eyeshaodw for the life of me with my digital)

I'm thinking about buying some Pixi mascara now, it looks like good quality stuff. I'm impressed with Target's lines of makeup. Jemma Kidd makeup is amazing, I love it.

Pixi really does have a good one. I love the blue-black thing, so it holds a special spot. I also looked at the NP line at Target and was intrigued by his mascara. Might try it next time.
