    Comments about Tarte Opening Act Lash Primer:

    I used this originally and loved it. I decided to use a cheap other brand and hated it! Learned my lesson! Worth the price and works beautifully!

        Comments about Tarte Opening Act Lash Primer:

        This is one of my everyday "basics". It helps build up my lashes prior to using Tarte mascara. My lashes are very fine thin. Once I've applied both products my eyes now POP! Lashes have never looked better, thicker.

            I thought this was used to make lashes longer, but it makes them fuller. Not a bad thing to be surprised about, but definitely not what I was expecting!

                    For me all t really did was clump up and make the mascara clump up with it . I do want to note that I don't have strong/long/full eyelashes to begin with instead they are sparse and thin . So if you have fuller lashes it would probably apply better

                          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?

                          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.
