      I can't even explain how much I love this product! Love how it leaves your eyelashes long and not clumped up! I have received so much compliments when wearing this. Although I wish the actual mascara was a bigger bottle, I'll purchase again!

        I have been using a lash primer for a few months. Was previously using a Revlon one before purchasing this one. I love how it doesn't clump on my lashes and my mascara goes over it smoothly.

                  Hi, I have used this a few times and find it is clumping after mascara application. Can you offer any tips to reduce this? I notice when I put the primer on, white clumps already forming even before the application of the mascara! help!

                    A:

                    We suggest only doing one application of the lash primer and wiping the top of the product if any gets on the sides when pulling it out.

                  Will this product reduce the transferring of mascara to the brow bone and under eye area?

                    A:

                    This product volumizes and conditions lashes, while making your mascara last without drying out or flaking. It shouldn't transfer above or below the eye and to ensure it doesn't, you can apply with a waterproof mascara. Hope that helps!

                    Yes, you can pair this primer with any mascara. We paired it with a free deluxe size of our lights, camera, lashes 4-in-1 mascara so you can get the best in volume, length & curl, along with lash conditioning benefits.

                    This lash primer comes with a deluxe size of our lights, camera, lashes 4-in-1 mascara but it works well with any tarte mascaras, whether that's travel size or full size since they both have the same brush. Hope that helps!

                    We recommend allowing a few seconds for the lash primer to dry prior to mascara application for best results!

                • Q:

                  I must curl my stick straight lashes and immediately put waterproof mascara on to hold the curl. Or my lashes just pop right down again.
                  How well does this hold a curl when it dries?

                    A:

                    The specially formulated opening act lash primer has quickly become a fan favorite! It's infused with naturally-derived ingredients to condition lashes to help volumize, lengthen, and curl for that dramatic, bombshell look thanks to the 360° magniLASH brush. Make sure to wedge the wand at the base of your lashes and zig zag from the base to the tip to coat every lash before applying your mascara. Tarteistry tip! Always curl lashes before applying mascara for best results. We recommend the picture perfect™ eyelash curler or the shine bright statement lash essentials to add a little bling to your lash wardrobe this holidaze.
