      BETTER than LANCOME - CHEAPER!

      Comments about Smashbox Layer Lash Primer:

      I bought this because I didn't want to spend so much to get Lancome's lash primer. Tried the drugstore versions.. meh. Read the reviews of the Smashbox version, gave it a try. I like it better and it is easier to build up without clumping. Removes easily when I wash my face at nighttime. And it's considerably cheaper! What's not to like?

              Comments about Smashbox Layer Lash Primer:

              I bought this on a whim as I wanted to try a last primer. On the wand it looks white but applied to the lashes it is clear. It almost feels like you're putting glue on your lashes (essentially the purpose), however, it really does help to thicken up the lashes. I'm not sure if I saw much lengthening because of this primer because I used Too Faced Better than Sex and Benefit They're real in conjunction with this one.

              Even though I would only use this on special occasions (or when I have enough time to commit to this extra step), I think it serves its purpose. I can't compare to any other lash primers as this was my first one but I'm sure there are cheaper alternatives.

              hint: Use coconut oil to get this off your lashes!

              Comments about Smashbox Layer Lash Primer:

              The only complaint I have is the applicator brush shape. It would be nice if it had a rounded tip for the corners of the eye. I have small, hooded eyes and this would be useful. Other than that it is easy to apply. I also like that it decreases the time my main mascara is open,and exposed to air. And that using the primer decreases the amount of mascara product I have to use.

              This works very well on even the shortest of lashes. I read a review that said it was best used when the mascara is applied while the primer is still wet. I was skeptical about how it work, as I thought it would end up as a clumpy mess. I was very surprised that this worked great. The primer brush does get a little clumpy and messy but worth it.

                  Layer Lash Primer features a white hue, so we wouldn't recommend wearing it alone, at least during the daytime! :-)

                  A:

                  Layer Lash Primer is formulated with panthenol, which strengthens and conditions lashes, helping them to grow stronger and longer and to prevent breakage and fallout.
