    This is my favorite eye product. I can't find nothing else like it. It only only creates a base for my mascara, it makes $2 mascara look like a luxury brand! It is easily removed and conditions my lashes.

      Comments about Tarte Opening Act Lash Primer:

      I have used this product for about 5 years. My sister recommended it to me after she used it and loved it! I have been buying it ever since. It really does make my lashes longer and fuller while conditioning them so they still feel soft and are also protected from the harshness of the waterproof mascara that I use in the summer.

        Comments about Tarte Opening Act Lash Primer:

        I was getting tired of flaking mascara that would wear off onto my lids during the day. I saw a recommendation for a primer and found this. I absolutely love this product. It goes on smoothly and lengthens my lashes to an incredible length. Paired with Tarte mascara and I have noticeably longer, fuller lashes.

                    Yes, this product is white but disappears after you apply mascara. Hope that helps!

                • Q:

                  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!

                    Yes, you can pair this primer with any mascara. We paired it with a free deluxe size of our lights, camera, lashes 4-in-1 mascara so you can get the best in volume, length & curl, along with lash conditioning benefits.

                    This lash primer comes with a deluxe size of our lights, camera, lashes 4-in-1 mascara but it works well with any tarte mascaras, whether that's travel size or full size since they both have the same brush. Hope that helps!

                    We recommend allowing a few seconds for the lash primer to dry prior to mascara application for best results!

                • 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.
