Most Helpful Positive Review A revolutionary game changer!
I must admit, I was a skeptic prior to using Tartes lash primer... Like who has time to apply an ample amount of primer prior to the ample amount of time it takes to apply mascara?! But I am here to say that this lash primer goes on quickly and makes a world of difference! Total game changer! When I use it with Tartes Light Camera Lashes Mascara, my lashes look like falsies!! I will never again wear mascara without this primer! (I have tried another brands lash primer and it was awfu,I couldn't even see it when I applied, and it did absolutely nothing for my lashes!!) I highly recommend!
Most Helpful Critical Review It has an effect, just not the one I wanted
I was a little bummed by this product. It's my first Tarte purchase and I had high hopes for it, and maybe that's where I went wrong. The mascara itself is travel sized, which I guess makes sense if you are using the primer with it (less coats to apply). The primer, even after adding multiple layers, only added a light speckling of white at the tip of my lashes. Once I applied the mascara over it I have to admit that I was impressed by how smoothly and perfectly it separated my lashes, but aside from a little darkening and just a tad more length, I really didn't see a difference from my natural lashes. From what I can tell it didn't thicken them at all, and with my thin lashes, that's what I needed the most. I'll keep it and use it for the daytime "no makeup" look, but overall kind of disappointing, and honestly too much work to look like I'm not wearing anything. Speaking of work, it's kind of hard to get off, I used an eye makeup remover and still ended up tearing out a few lashes.

I have very sparse short lashes. I have been looking at myself on zoom all year and wanted to step up my game. This primer makes a noticeable difference. Mascara alone hardly looks like anything but when I use the primer, I actually have eyelashes. It's very fun!
Before the pandemic and all the Zoom meetings, I rarely wore mascara. Now I'm addicted, in large part because of this primer.
Best primer if you don't have sensitive eyes
Michaella from California
I love this primer it made my mascara look 10x better, but if you have sensitive eyes you might be allergic to the ingredients!
Only Primer I'll Buy!
Autumn 🌧 from Michigan
I've tried so many different eyelash primers over the years, but nothing has come close to this one! This has been a personal must-have of mine for 5+ years! Couldn't imagine my routine without it! 🤍
Best primer ever

This stuff works like a dream. I have tried other products, but nothing compares to this.
Dried Out from Pasadena
Came dried out! Also bought a travel size & that too came dried out! Not at all pleased! Had to put eye solution in order to use it!
Shayna from Chesterfield
I will never wear mascara ever again without this stuff. DEFINITELY A GAME CHANGER.
Bought before, will buy again and again
Emily from Mobile, AL
I use before applying mascara, it helps my lashes look thicker and longer.
I LOVE both of these products! I am hooked!
SCooper from CA
I use the primer and wait a couple of minutes to apply the mascara, seems to work best for me.
El Belles from Bryant
I love how thick it makes my lashes, as well as the length! So worth the money.
My new favorite
Danielle from New Jersey
I like extreme lashes so a-lot of the time I have to keep reapplying and it gets clumpy. Not with this. I love it.
Kathy from Texas
This just makes your lashes look better. I suggest waiting a few seconds after applying the primer to apply mascara on top just to thicken the formula on your lashes a bit. Worth every penny. Does not irritate my sensitive eyes. Comes off easily with eye makeup remover or face wash.
Georgia Mom from Marietta, GA
Lash primers make a huge difference in how long and thick my lashes look. I've been using Lancôme's lash primer for years and absolutely love it - but when I saw Tarte had a lash primer too and knowing Tarte is a vegan, cruelty-free brand - I had to try it. I can tell you Opening Act is just as good as Lancôme's primer. Now Tarte's primer is my HG:)
Fake lashes with just an extra mascara step
LColl from Washington DC
I was super skeptical about whether this would work and it quickly found it makes a huge difference. It is super easy to build up and stays all night. I have a lash comb that I use to brush it out if it gets too clumpy and with the two I can get the most insane, fluffy lashes. This can make any mascara good, I really can't recommend this enough.
Ella from Utah
This product made my lashes fall off! I don't know what happened I just applied 20 coats of primer as a dare but it still shouldn't of made them fall off!!
Love this stuff
Joyce from Redding Ca
This product really makes my lashes stand out.
I would buy again
Linda from Texas

I would buy this product again
Shel from Chapel Hill NC
Mascara primer adds length and volume. I prefer to buy mascara and primer separately.
My sensitive eyes couldn't handle
Mimi Makeup from Georgia
The primer made my eyes burn and then feel watery all day. My lashes looked great but the feeling was more than I could handle so I had to return the product.
I would definitely bybthis again.
Jackie from SC
Great product. Highly recommend.
It's a must for me
Poopsie from South Plainfield,NJ
I am 60 years old with very sparse short lashes. This primer lifts, separates and gives you fuller lashes you didn't know you had. It also nourishes lashes and helps them grow. I never see eyelash fallout and have been using this primer for several years. I can't apply mascara without it. The trial size mascara was a nice deep black and the brush was easy for application.
Froggy from Midwest
Expected more from Tarte.
Lots of lashes!!!
Heather from Melbourne, FL
Love this product - will buy it always!!
Susie from AZ
Product goes on lashes smoothly - conditions and holds the mascara, but doesn't make it clump and is easily removed.
Mar from Chicago
The first time I used this primer I loved it! It did a fantastic job separating, and extending my lashes. I loved it more than Lancôme's primer, especially because it didn't get crusty around the outside of the tube. This second time using it however, has been very different. My lashes seem to look clumpier, and it's almost as if the formula dried quicker. It's also not providing the same lift as it did last time. Not sure if maybe I got a bad batch, or if my lashes are being weird. They look totally fine with the mascara alone though. Maybe I'll give this primer one more chance and see if a new tube works better.
Yes this is my 2nd time buying this product
Christine from Swartz creek MI
This is a great product it extends my lashes big time
