        Comments about Tarte Opening Act Lash Primer:

        This is the first primer I ever used because I was tired of my mascara smudging all the time. I fell in love instantly! Not only does it help my mascara stay on better, it lengthens my eyelashes a ton. I will never go back to anything else.

                    I quickly lost the sample of mascara so ive been pairing this primer with multiple masaras from different brands without any trouble. It make my lashes look extremely full and long but still natural. It also helps my lashes keep a curly shape longer than mascara alone.

                      I have tried a few other lash primers including Urban Decay and Jane Iredale. I keep coming back to this one over the past 2-3 years. I have short-medium eyelashes, but I do not like to use a lash curler. I use this before my mascara, and it helps provide length, thickness, and drama. It does not clump on the wand or on the lashes like others do. I also have oily lids, and using this before mascara helps prevent mascara transfer to my eyelids.

                          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.
