Expert tip: Coat lashes as an evening beauty routing - the conditioning effects work as an overnight mask to make lashes their healithest.

Artistry tip: Apply Cils booster XL from roots to tips making sure you don't wait until it is dried before coating each lash with mascara for a perfectly smooth, clump free application.

                      Questions and Answers on travel size state that the travel size is .14oz.... which is apparently what the full size specs say. So which is it? Is the travel size .14 or the full size .14? One of them has to be wrong.

                        Cils Booster XL Vitamin Infused Mascara Primer is a lash conditioning primer to be used under mascara. This is not a mascara. After using this, the lashes look white so you would not use this without mascara.

                        Here are the full usage directions:

                        Apply one or two coats of Cils Booster XL, working the brush from lash base to tip in a zig zag motion. Follow with several coats of mascara. Can also be used as a night time deep conditioning treatment for eyelashes.

                        Expert tip: Coat lashes as an evening beauty routing - the conditioning effects work as an overnight mask to make lashes their healithest.
