    Comments about Lancôme Cils Booster XL Vitamin Infused-Mascara Primer:

    I got a trial of this in a complimentary box and I used it a few times with the Monsieur Big mascara so I could give my review. I liked it well enough, but it is an extra step and I kinda just forgot about it after I was done testing. I later bought the tarteist lash paint mascara and I fell in love with the way that made my lashes look, but it transferred like crazy. I'd look like a raccoon by the end of the day. I saw the lancome primer as I was cleaning out my makeup drawer one day and I decided to try that with the lash paint to see if it helped. It absolutely did. My lashes looked longer and the mascara stayed on perfectly all day. I bought the full size because the trial size was expired (I know, I broke a rule) and I used it every day for three weeks before I noticed that my real lashes were getting longer and thicker. I really wasn't expecting results like that. I've already purchased a back up and I will never be without this stuff again. It's totally worth the money.

    I have been contemplating on buying the Lash Boost from Rodan and Fields, but was hesitant because of the steep price. Upon receiving a sample of the Cils Booster XL, I was in love. This products elongates my lashes beautifully and conditions them as well. I have not thought twice about the Lash Boost since using this product. I highly recommend it! You will be pleased.

          Comments about Lancôme Cils Booster XL Vitamin Infused-Mascara Primer:

          For the longest time, I didn't want to bother with primers of any kind, and didn't want to add another step to my make-up routine. Well, after getting a sample of this years ago, I now continue to buy this a couple times a year without thinking, as part of my make-up routine. Like the others say, it provides a good base for mascara, and I swear it seems to condition my lashes, which could use all the help they can!

            I originally received a sample of this from my Play box (which I no longer subscribe to) and loved it so much I had to go for the full size.
            I hadn't ever used a lash primer before, but I loved what this formula did for my lashes. They definitely seem healthier (not as many falling out) and my mascara application is much smoother and even with this. The longevity of my mascara during the day has also improved dramatically!
            Mascara can be a little troublesome to remove at the end of the day with this, but I take it as the primer is just really doing it's job!

              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.
