Most Helpful Positive Review Innovative Product
I tried it to see if it could be used as an alternative to mascara. It darkened my lashes and lengthened them slightly. It creates a nice finished appearance when you don't want a heavily made up look. It lasted all day and didn't flake or create those black undereye circles mascara can sometimes do. Under mascara I expect it to be better than the white cream product as you can see it easier on your lashes and know you have applied it to all lashes.
Most Helpful Critical Review Does not compare with Lash Primer Plus
Little Black Primer does not compare with Lash Primer Plus. LPP is much better (despite it is a white creme). I apply LPP first and then Sumptuous Extreme Waterproof Mascara. They work perfectly together. I have fine lashes, and these two products create voluminized, long, normal-looking lashes for me!
The new LBP? Not so. It applies thinly and not gloppy (this is good), but when I apply my Sumptuous Extreme Waterproof mascara on top, my lashes went in different directions and got worse after everything dried (no, Sumptuous Ex did not do this). Plus, my lashes stayed that way all day and looked quite bad. They looked like miniature, crooked twigs! I am a professional and know how to apply MU. Am returning the new LBP. LPP does not do this to my lashes, and I shall stick with my tried and true.
Because of the performance, I would not even think of using the new LBP in any of the three, suggested ways. This is what I experienced using the product. It will probably work for some but not for others.

I use this every time I apply my eye makeup! It works well to set mascara. And it can be used with any other mascara product.
Magatron128 from Chicago IL
I've been using this lash primer for years. Sometimes I wander & try other products but I always come back. I love that the formula is already black & not white like 90% of all other lash primers. Also this product never transfers & I've really put it to the test over the years. I can apply it & apply setting spray immediately afterwards & it won't transfer. I also have sensitive skin & this product has never made my eyes water or itch. A truly underrated gem.
niknux15_ from Florida
this is such a fantastic product! I use this alone for natural days, to give lashes a boost! under mascara as a primer for more volume and best of all, over ANY mascara to seal and NO FLAKING OR RACOON EYES! I will cry rivers of tears if this ever gets discontinued!
LD from Washington DC
I love this primer combined with mascara to give my lashes an extra boost! Also helps prevent smearing.
NOT A TRUE "PRIMER"
TEXAS GIRL from LLANO TEXAS
I expected this to be a true primer-filling out and lengthening for mascara. It's simple mascara and does nothing to increase the fullness or length of lashes.
MickiB from Federal Way
I hate mascara, but my lashes are so light I needed something.
This has awesome tinting properties,
And no clumps.
Husker1 from Columbia, SC
I had issues with mascara flaking off until I found this product. It works great and solved my problem.
jane from Phoenix Arizona
I love this primer! I use it all by itself and it gives me the perfect natural look. It doesn't smudge or smear off which is the best part. It is difficult to remove though, but I would much rather have a mascara that doesn't want to come off than mascara that won't even stay on.
2nd time trying it
kimmy from bristol, tn
I bought one already and opened it and it was dry... so i bought another one, got it home opened it and it was dried out. so this is a very dry primer. mostly just a wand with bristles and very very little primer. Not worth the expense
Best Little Black Secret
Skinfixer from Chicago, IL
I Love This Primer! First discovered it last year in an Ulta flyer and had to try it. I like it because it's thin - light covered, but enough to make a difference. If you are going to use a primer, this is a great one to try especially if your're using a black mascara, it just gives a little more depth without any clumps. My new favorite thing!
Better than a Little Black Dress
NSmith757 from Overland Park KS
It's so great to not only NOT have my mascara smudge but also that it lasts for 12-15 hours. No need to reapply.
MarilynC from Oakland, CA
The Little Black Primer is a must have for any makeup bag. Use it as a primer before mascara and also as a light mascara for everyday.
Little black primer
Kurt from Omaha
My wife absolutely loves this product. She often just wears it by itself. The only complaint she has is there isn't enough in the tube.
Love it on its own
Adrienne from Virginia Beach, VA
I wear this on its own for a barely there look. I feel like this is perfect on its own for when you want a little definition for your lashes without feeling like you have a ton of eye makeup on.
Love this eyelash tint!
Belladonna from Georgia
Love this. My lashes are invisible so I cant go without mascara. This gives me a quick tint that stays. No smudging. Havent tried it under or over mascara but intend to.
Jessica from Pikeville tn
Overall a good product. It's easy to use and makes my lashes longer,also good for all day wear.
Absolute Best Primer Ever!
Lisa from Sugarloaf PA
This Little Black Primer is the best product ever! I have double lashes and have always dealt with smudges and the "black circles" within a few hours of applying mascara - even waterproof mascaras! Since using this product I use the as my daily mascara and for special occasions I apply mascara over the primer! I no longer deal with smudges or melting mascara - I will forever use this product.
Primer from Elk Grove, Ca
The only thing I don't like about this primer is that it is waterproof. It stays on your lashes for dear life. But OMG, talk about length, I shave short, sparse lashes, and this primer gives my lashes length. I really like this primer, I just don't use it often. I do wish the price was lower.
Lola from Newark, DE
this is a best primer, mainly I use under mascara
Perfect Light Mascara
Carotello from Austin TX
I have long but thin lashes and regular mascara leaves my lashes clumpy &/or makes people think I've attached fake lashes. I love this primer bc it outlines my lashes so I don't look dead but doesn't make me look like I'm trying too hard. It's water resistant which is great bc it's very hot where I live and I'm a sweater. I have this on auto ship bc I love it so much! It's my favorite mascara.
Buff from Knoxville Tn
I bought 2 of these so I could have one with me at work. It stays on all day and I wear it alone for days I want to look natural. On other days I use it as my primer and as my top coat. Very satisfied with this product.
July Crab from Annapolis MD
Another travel size product I liked so much have gotten the full size.Great to use by itself when I need a quick coat on my lashes for color & lift. Really keeps my mascara on, & love that it waterproofs it as well.
Damaging your eyelashes
Elpis from Halfmoon, NY
Very disappointing. I got tricked by overall review rating. Should've read some of the rating thought. Truly this product is extremely hard to remove, basically damaging your eyelashes. I would not recommend buying it
Little Black Primer
Vicki from New York
Finally a mascara that doesn't give me raccoon eyes. I love this product. I use it as my daily mascara. I curl my lashes first, this helps keep them curled.
Exactly a little black primer
T A M from Billtown Il
Goes on thin and smooth. No clumping of the lashes. The wand / brush is very fine with the perfect curve. Goes on and keeps the lashes separated.
