5.0

more lash than when used lancome

By Denverbroncosgroupy

from Denver CO

Comments about Clinique Lash Building Primer:

I have very short lashes and won't wear fake ones. I didn't want to spend another 25 bucks on lancome again and wanted a good alternative. Clinique actually gave me fuller and longer lashes and is CHEAPER ! I will keep buying over the Lancome.

        Comments about Clinique Lash Building Primer:

        Ever since Clinique introduced this product, I have been in love with it. It really makes my lashes look fuller and longer than with mascara only. I use it with Clinique mascaras & mascaras that aren't by Clinique. It is definitely worth that extra step!! Works better than 2 coats of mascara.

                      Hi! All Clinique products undergo rigorous product safety testing prior to manufacture. However, as we are only familiar with our brand's products, we are unable to recommend whether the Clinique Lash Building Primer would be suitable for use with a competitor's product. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                      A:

                      Hi! You could use it as an overnight conditioner, but it has a white cast, so it is not best used during the day. Clinique does offer a brow mousse. It is called Just Browsing Brush On Styling Mousse and is a great option for taming brows in the daytime. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                  • Q:

                    Since the ingredients are not listed, I'm wondering if this is basically a "tubing primer" that, when applied before mascara, essentially turns any mascara into a tubing mascara? I have sensitive eyes and can only wear tubing mascara ( like the Clinique Lash Power) but there are so many other mascaras I would love to try! If this is basically a "tubing primer" then it would be an eyelash saver for me!

                      A:

                      Hi! This is not a tubing primer. We do have tubing mascaras in our lash power formulas that you are currently using. This primer is a conditioning primer that lengthens and thickens the lashes. It is very gentle and most people with sensitive eyes have had great luck using it. I am noting the ingredients below for your review. Thank you for your question and have a wonderful week!
