    I tried many kinds of mascaras from drugstore brands to prestige. Nothing was doing it -especially not the top prestige ones recommended at Ulta. THIS PLUS LIGHTS CAMERA ACTION = HOLY GRAIL

          My friend told me about this product, but I'd been skeptical forever (in spite of the fact that her lashes are amazing). I finally decided to try it and it works wonders! It helps prevent my mascara from clumping and I'm not losing so many eyelashes to stress! My mascara comes off more easily before bedtime too!

              wear this everyday under my mascara! It makes my very lackluster lashes look volumized and long and they'll stay like that all day! I use it with the tarte mascara, or the Loreal telescopic, or the Maybelline lash sensational. Favorite lash product ever, there's no way i can go back now

                  I use this everyday under my Tarte mascara and I have seen a significant improvement in how my mascara wears, it last much longer and I feel like my lashes look much fuller when I use the primer and mascara vs just the mascara by itself.

                        Will this product reduce the transferring of mascara to the brow bone and under eye area?

                          A:

                          This product volumizes and conditions lashes, while making your mascara last without drying out or flaking. It shouldn't transfer above or below the eye and to ensure it doesn't, you can apply with a waterproof mascara. Hope that helps!

                      • Q:

                        I must curl my stick straight lashes and immediately put waterproof mascara on to hold the curl. Or my lashes just pop right down again.
                        How well does this hold a curl when it dries?

                          A:

                          The specially formulated opening act lash primer has quickly become a fan favorite! It's infused with naturally-derived ingredients to condition lashes to help volumize, lengthen, and curl for that dramatic, bombshell look thanks to the 360° magniLASH brush. Make sure to wedge the wand at the base of your lashes and zig zag from the base to the tip to coat every lash before applying your mascara. Tarteistry tip! Always curl lashes before applying mascara for best results. We recommend the picture perfect™ eyelash curler or the shine bright statement lash essentials to add a little bling to your lash wardrobe this holidaze.
