This product is fabulous. My eyelashes are almost non-existent now it looks as if I'm wearing false lashes. I love love love it.
Most Helpful Critical Review Disappointment
Have used this product for several years and have loved it. I think this is another case of trying to improve something but you really didn't. I've never had any problem with application of this product,but now, the primer clumps at the base of the wand so you have all this waste and excess that you can't use and it makes application difficult. Part of the reason why I stopped using Mac mascara was because of application. Your wands clump the product up so its impossible to apply it. Plus I think the applicator itself is a bit smaller than its predecessor. So disappointed.

So far I like it.. Works good!
Zariah from New York
I will never wear mascara without using this primer first EVER AGAIN! For the longest time I was having problems with my mascaras running and smudging.. super frustrating. But not with this amazing product! It keeps my mascara in place all day/night, boosts my lashes by enhancing curl volume & length, and overall makes my lashes look amazing. People always ask if I'm wearing false lashes and I tell them nope! Just MAC false lashes maximizer! I will never be without this product.

Love this on my eyes. Works great with my eyelash curler.
I'd have to say "NO!"
Keshia from Illinois
I just got it today… and, it is clumpy. For it to be a under coat. It shouldn't be clumpy. Very disappointed! This is a 1st I've ever disliked a product. It's a NO!
NOT WORTH THE MONEY
LDB from FL
I would not recommend this product. I did not see as change when applying my mascara.
SCT from USA
Love this product…….. the only reason I'm not giving it five stars is that it's very messy coming out of the tube and can be a little difficult to work with. I'm wondering if a different wand/brush would help? But once you get the hang of it, you will love the finished product. Your mascara will glide on and it does have that "false" look to it.
Great for BROWS and lashes
Leena from New Orleans
While this works well for its intended purpose of adding volume to lashes pre-mascara, it is excellent as a strong-hold brow product. I got it at the recommendation of a MAC rep who said it is great for mimicking a soap-brow look, and he was correct. My brow hair is very thick and stubborn. This product holds it up and out, and can create a number of looks such as a feathered brow, a soap brow, and a laminated brow look. My brows stay how I style them for hours, even through a good night's sleep (yes, I tested it). This product did what Boy Brow and the ABH and Benefit gels couldn't do. I have already bought back ups and I hope MAC doesn't discontinue this product or change the formula.

no false lashes needed now. Using the maximizer followed by whatever mascara you wish- bam gorgeous long lashes. Fast lashes. No need for tools, glue, cleaning false lashes. So in love with this product right from use one.
Works for me!
Sissybug from Colorado
Following directions to coat my natural lashes from near the eyelid, this product lengthens and thickens. My eyelashes are relatively long to begin with but look much lusher with the primer. The only criticism I have is that solution gloms up at top of brush so there is loss of product. Not sure how to resolve this, but it doesn't prevent me from repurchasing.
False Lash Primer
Leslie from Raleigh, NC.
Best Lash Primer I have ever used.
I have tried them all but Mac's is the best!
Styezzie from Atlanta, GA
I love this primer. I have very long natural lashes, but as I get older they are thinning. They are there but with mascara alone they don't really pop anymore. I put this on, wait about 5 minutes, curl, separate, then apply mascara. Boom! My natural eyelashes are back & sexy as ever! LOL! I only use one coat but you could build, but need to separate unless you are going for the spider look. I use with MACs extended play gigablack mascara. Will definitely purchase again.

Helps lashes look full and long
False Lash Maximizer
Sue from Scottsdale
This stuff is truly amazing. Length, fullness... It delivers. This pairs perfectly with the False Lash Mascara in delivering long lashes that DONT look like spiders, but like these are MY lashes. Nice job MAC
Amazing eye lash primer!
Angela from NJ
Not sure why this product only has a 3.3 rating. I use it everyday along with Haute and Naughty Too Black mascara. It definitely helps define and elongate my lashes. I highly recommend using this.
Can't live without it!!!
Niki from Palm desert
I have been using this products for years now! I get so many compliments about my lashes. I do a layer of this then follow it with 2-3 layers of Better than Sex mascara. Best combination ever!!!
kd from CO
Decided to try this as an alternative to two coats of mascara. This plus one coat of False Lashes mascara is DEFINITELY WORSE than two coats of mascara. Does not give the same lengthening and definition as two coats of mascara. Lame.
I love it!
D from Vb
First of all this was ordered by mistake, I thought I was getting a brown mascara(don't ask). I opened it, read reviews and decided to try it. It makes a huge difference! It does come out clumpy on the wand, but it doesn't change the application of it, just need to know what you're doing!
Joan from Gulf Shores, Al
The product is so thick on the wand that you can't apply without wiping it off. Big waste.
Bonnie from NZ
NOT IDEAL. As a primer the brush isn't the best and everything clumps together. Does not seperate the lashes either.
KFV from Sacramento
Purchased this product and I'm simply amazed. Having fine naturally long lashes is one thing...but, this product made my lashes stand out.
AzynRavyn from Oakland,ca
My eye lashes are so thin and this stuff makes it so that the mascara has something to hold on to. It is freaking amazing! Take my money!
I really like this product
Good shopper from Apple Valley Ca
It goes on smooth
False lashes? Never from Lodi
Love this. I use it before I put on my mascara. I don't bother with false lashes, this product really enhances out my regular lashes and gives them the volume that I want.
Peekar from WA
Like some of the other reviewers, I LOVED the Prep and Prime lash. I have a problem of having deepest eyes and without primer my mascara transfers to under my eyes/upper cheeks. The primer prevented that AND made my lashes look amazing! I have tried the false lashes maximizer and it's very so so. It helps my major problem of mascara transfer, but the wand is horrible, it's difficult to apply and it does not add as much volume as the Prep and Prime. I am definitely going to try other products before re-purchasing this.
Jj.hum from Manhattan, Kansas
The product isn't what I was hoping. It also did not dry clear for me. And like everyone else has said, it's super messy coming out of the tube!! Please bring back Prep + Prime!
