          I totally used to think mascara primers were so unneccesary but this has changed my life! It makes any mascara look good and you only need one coat of the primer and one coat of mascara. Super quick and looks like falsies!

              This is a daily must have. Not only does it moisturize your eyelashes, which keep from becoming brittle and breaking off, it allows extensions of them when you pair with the Hynose Drama Mascara, which is another must have. I honestly cannot imagine using makeup with this duo.

                  Lancôme'sXL Vitamin Mascara Primer is worth it's weight in gold. My lashes have never looked longer. It goes on white and dries clear. You can apply your mascara right away.
                  I use it at night alone because it is infused with vitamins and my lashes have grown during the time I have used it.
                  I highly recommend this product.

                  I had given up on wearing eye makeup although my eyes are my favorite feature. My eyes are very sensitive and my mascara was always smearing under my eyes. I ended up looking unkempt instead of polished, so I just quit using mascara. I received the CILS Booster in a sample size and gave it a try. To my amazement, my mascara stayed in place all day. I love it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

                      A:

                      Cils Booster XL Vitamin Infused Mascara Primer is a lash conditioning primer to be used under mascara. This is not a mascara. After using this, the lashes look white so you would not use this without mascara.

                  • Q:

                    Will using this product help my lashes grow thicker/longer/stronger? Or is it simple a primer to use before applying mascara?

                      Lancome Cils Booster XL Primer is a mascara primer that conditions the lashes. It does not claim to help lashes to grow stronger.

                    I have been using this primer for months and I love it! I was wondering how often I need to replace the tube? I have been using my current tube for about 2 months and it seems to be getting a little dry. Is there a recommendation for replacing it?
