      Comments about Clinique Lash Building Primer:

      I was given this product as a recommendation from a woman working for clinique at ulta. She highly recommended it so I thought I would give it a shot. She said you could either wait for the primer to dry and then apply mascara or apply mascara directly after applying the primer. I tried it both ways to see of there is a way this primer could work for me and it definitely didn't. When I applied it, it was weirdly thin yet would not apply evenly and kind of pooled in certain places along my eyeline. I applied it after I curled my lashes and instead of helping hold the shape like every other primer I have used this removed the curl causing my eyelashes to clump and droop (this has never been a problem with any other primer I have used and I have used a few). So now before mascara application i have clumpy droopy eyelashes, however after having it on for about 30 seconds it ran a little into my eye and it burns. The time I allowed it to dry fully i put mascara on afterwards and it still caused my mascara to be very liquidy (moreso than normal) and it ran into my eyes. I was looking for something to help my mascara stay and build volume and this did neither. When I applied mascara it did not apply as evenly as normal so it already looked like from the beginning it had worn or washed away. The mascara afterwards took like 5 min to dry after the one good eye where it didn't magically run into. Because of this drying problem and trying to address the other violently red eye when I cleaned that mess up I realized that mascara had gotten everywhere. When I was able to finally fix things and go I realized that my mascara had smeared and moreso than usual (a problem I often have and the reason for trying out a new product) this wasn't flaking it was a full out smear and my lackluster clumpy lashes no longer looked like they had any color to them either. The only bright side to this product is it makes mascara very easy to remove.

                      Love this primer. I put it on before I apply my mascara but apply your mascara right after don't let it dry because you won't be able to length your lashes as much if it dries. Helps keep my lashes standing up instead of dropping.

                        Can this be used on eyebrows too as a primer for tinted gel and/or an overnight conditioner?

                          Hi! You could use it as an overnight conditioner, but it has a white cast, so it is not best used during the day. Clinique does offer a brow mousse. It is called Just Browsing Brush On Styling Mousse and is a great option for taming brows in the daytime. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                      • Q:

                        Since the ingredients are not listed, I'm wondering if this is basically a "tubing primer" that, when applied before mascara, essentially turns any mascara into a tubing mascara? I have sensitive eyes and can only wear tubing mascara ( like the Clinique Lash Power) but there are so many other mascaras I would love to try! If this is basically a "tubing primer" then it would be an eyelash saver for me!

                          Hi! This is not a tubing primer. We do have tubing mascaras in our lash power formulas that you are currently using. This primer is a conditioning primer that lengthens and thickens the lashes. It is very gentle and most people with sensitive eyes have had great luck using it. I am noting the ingredients below for your review. Thank you for your question and have a wonderful week!
