            I started using this brand because my store was out of the Urban Decay Subversion primer, I find it to be very similar and was told by an associate at the store that the formula is the same. I tend to switch back and forth between the two and like them both.

                Comments about Clinique Lash Building Primer:

                I was a die hard Dior eyelash primer fan. Or so I thought. I received this as a sample, and I was out of Dior. Gave it a try and have been using it ever since. It's easy to apply and gives my eyelashes that extra length and volume I'm looking for. Why do false eyelashes that cost more, fall out and *ahem* look like false eyelashes? This product delivers and it's price can't be beat.

                    I have short straight lashes damaged from chemotherapy. I've all but given up on mascara but can't manage to apply false eyelashes. After reading the reviews on this I tried it and it gave me my beautiful lashes back! It lengthened, volumized, and curled them, and made the Rollerlash mascara easier to apply on top. I'm going to try Clinique curling mascara next since I'm so impressed with this primer! Yay!

                          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!

                          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!

                          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!
