I love this product! I walked into an ULTA one day (after trying several other mascaras) and asked an associate what they would recommend for a mascara when someone is missing a section of eyelashes. I have no idea how my eyelashes disappeared, but this associate was soooo helpful that she guided me in the direction of this product called NYX ON THE RISE LASH BOOSTER. I asked her what would cause my eyelashes to go missing and we got to talking about me using other mascara product and DING!! some mascaras will cause your eyelashes to fall out! I had no clue as I am NOT a makeup artist or one to wear makeup every. single. day. But dang...I'd love a full set of eyelashes to stand out. This product did the job. Since this product has castor oil (which btw is excellent for this problem) it helped a good section of my eyelashes grow back, it made my lashes long, did not smear like most mascaras do under my eyes, and it went on black just like any mascara does. I'm very pleased with this product and will continue to buy.
I was excited to use this product because I really like the on the rise mascara, but I've tried it three times and it's made my eyelashes super clumpy and messy looking. I thought it was quite interesting how this primer is more of a black/grey color rather than a white or clear. I will say that it does add length to your lashes but it is super tough for me to remove. I still have excess lingering on my lashes still after two days of not having it on at all! I'll stick with my L'Oreal voluminous lash is primer. Sorry NYX, I really love your brand and price points are amazing but this just wasn't doing it for me. :(

My lashes get stiff after waterproof mascara. Thought I might need a primer. I have been wearing it alone without any mascara too. So far it's been okay.

I would buy this product again

To be honest, I just use it as my mascara - it's fantastic! Very few clumps, and it lengthens/thickens without being heavy.
Cel from Pennsylvania
I love this for a natural everyday lash! It does get a little clumpy so just be careful how much you apply.

i have to apply a reaaalllyyy thin coat of this or else my lashes will look clumpy): i didnt think it would be colored black i thought it would be more of a serum but it does do its job! it makes my lashes look longer
cristilynn from Southern plateau
this is a stand alone product as well. I think I actually prefer wearing it alone, as I've experienced clumsiness when I put mascara on top. the color is so natural also.

I thought this would be clear or white but it's black. I thought it was mascara after I used it. I'm not big on eyelash primer because it's too heavy for my scarce lashes and they fall out easy so I just use mascara. I'm sure it's a great product for others but it's too much for me.

I wanted to love this, but other primers I have used do a lot more. This is just like a first coat of thin mascara, that is all. Wish I could return it.

Clumpy, partially dried out, not worth it, even though it was purchased as a back up.

thick, dry, clumpy, and flakey.

Looks nice initially, but smudges easily when used alone and wears off quickly

This goes on clumpy. I was looking for a primer a little less expensive than my Lancôme. Unfortunately this was not the best choice. I'm happy with all my other NYX purchases.
Shay from Rockwall Tx
I wouldn't repurchase this product at this price. I've found better better primers at same price.
Betty from Mission Viejo CA
I thought this was a primer--it is not. Instead, it is mascara that goes on thick and clumpy. Looks cheap. It went in the trash after 3 tries.

First of all black primers are just useless and this one was clumpy and made my lashes look like spider legs. Never again
Wendy E from California
I love the length and coverage of my lashes with this product but it flakes terribly within hours of application.
Bela from San Jose, CA
I've had it for less than a month and it started a bit clumpy, but got worse and worse and worse for only a handful of uses.

I got this for free in a ulta order I placed back in February and I'm so happy I did. It has been 6 months and my lashes have grown so long! My natural lashes are much stronger now even with how frequently I use false lashes. It's advertised as a mascara primer but it works amazing alone as a mascara. It makes my lashes so voluminous and long. If you were to use it as a primer, it pairs great with Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High mascara. Try it!!!

Starting clumping after a week. I had to toss it!
Cindy S from Visalia Ca
I absolutely love this!! It works so well that I noticed an immediate improvement in my lashes after using it! I will definitely buy again!!
Vwmsm from Germantown, MD
This primer has it all! Castor oil, adds volume and length! It's it's own mascara! The on the rise mascara itself is horrible and I would not recommend, but THIS bad boy is a GREAT primer and I will continue to buy this to wear under my mascaras.

I was really impressed with this primer. Wasn't expecting it to be black but was impressed as to how long my lashes looked after using it. I applied two coats of mascara after this and got long separated lashes. I like using this primer on its own on non-makeup days cuz my lashes look natural and feel soft and look fuller now. A must buy!
