Best Mascara Combination For Long Lashes | Layering 101 With Pixi Beauty



Hi loves!

How many of you love long lashes?  I am always trying to get my lashes to reach new lengths, and feel that if my lashes look good, then I look and feel good.  Something about it just makes me feel like I look more put together whether I have on other makeup or just the mascara and some lip gloss.

Pix Beauty Insider

Pixi Beauty has recently sent me their line of four layering mascaras.  I tested them out on my SnapChat (melly_cakez), and was extremely impressed.  I usually load on a few different mascaras, but Pixi has come up with the perfect system of different steps of mascara in order to receive the best lashes.


Order of Mascaras:

  1. Black Laquer Lash Primer:  This primer is a total game changer.  I love that it is tinted black instead of the usual white that we see a lot of.  This step alone preps lashes for maximum volume.  Retails for $15.
  2. Lash Booster Mascara:  This booster has a blue tint to it and is a water-proof formula.  The wand is made to push lashes up. Retails for $15
  3. Lengthy Fiber Mascara:  This mascara may look a little scary at first.  It reminded me of getting pieces of a cotton ball stuck around the wand.  That is actually fibers that help lengthen yours by attaching to your real lashes.  Leaves lashes with a feathered effect.  Retails for $16.
  4. Lower Lash Mascara:  This mascara allows you to get super close to your waterline without getting black mascara all over the place.  I love how small the comb is on the wand because it really helps separate each lash allowing them to become super long.  Retails for $11.  


This lash system has been working like a dream for me since I got them!  I even put aside my holy grail Maybelline LashSensational and L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black mascaras dream team of mine.


If I had to only recommend one or two of these for you, I would definitely say to pick up the Black Laquer Lash Primer and Lengthy Fiber Mascara.  I’ve used just these two alone, and they give a good balance of volume and length.


Will you be mascara layering?  Which ones do you want to try?

Exuviance Retexturing Treatment Review

Cure Dry Flaky Skin


Hi loves!

Today I am talking about a product from Exuviance that is great if you have dry, flaky skin, or Keratosis Pilaris.  This skin retexturing treatment helps improve your cell turnover.

Exuviance Retexturing Treatment Reviews

What exactly is Keratosis Pilaris?

  • Keratosis Pilaris is a  skin (follicular) condition that appears as rough bumps around hair follicles on the skin of the back and outer side of the upper arms and thighs.

Luckily, this can easily be taken care of by consistent use of the retexturing treatment.

To use, I apply a generous amount onto the back of my arms and legs.  I was expecting to feel some kind of exfoliating beads, but it was just a smooth cream. FYI:  Do not use directly after shaving, and if you have a sun burn, this can make it feel worse, as well as increase your skins sensitivity to the sun.  I use a circular motion to cleanse, and let it sit for about a minute, then rinse.  One think I dislike is the smell.  It reminds me of medicine, but soon goes away after you rinse the product off.

For $42 you receive 6 fl oz of product.  I also am a huge fan of the bright aqua colored packaging and white cap.  It looks so nice displayed on the side of my shower.

After using this product for quite sometime, I have noticed the back of my thighs are smoother, and don’t have a goose bump appearance after shaving.

Will you be trying this product?
