Most Helpful Positive Review SO so good!
This really is so good! I have really short stubby lashes that don't hold curl, or any volume from any mascaras. However, I use this underneath, and my eyelashes get to false lash level volume and length. It's like magic. Also, since I have a monolid, my eyelashes tend to hit my lower lashline a lot, and even "no flaking" mascaras drop a little bit of mascara. This lash primer gives a little bit of longevity to my product; it takes a little bit longer for product to start flaking and dropping. It also has a very mild scent that is actually quite nice, a little bit fruity, and the shape of the wand deposits even product.
That leads me to some of the cons. The wand deposits a LOT of product with one sweep, so much that your lashes might be straight-up white. It gets a little bit annoying, but it's very easy to brush through with a disposable wand or just a finger to take some product off. Overall, 9.5/10!
Most Helpful Critical Review AMAZING scent but tricky to apply!
I was so excited to receive this product in the mail since I've been looking for a cruelty free primer at a reasonable price. When it arrived I immediately opened the package and the scent sold me right away. However, I'm not sure if the formula is too thick or the wand carries too much product but after a few tries I realize that the only way to make this product work would mean having to wipe a tons off the wand before applying. If not I would have to apply triple the amount of the mascara to cover this thick white primer. This is time consuming, product consuming, and 8/10 times starts to clump. Long story short I'm just going to use this to condition my lashes by it self, because the clump look isn't for me and wiping product off is not something a busy girl like me will enjoy doing. I don't regret trying this product though, for the price and benefits it was worth the shot.

Great coverage and last all day long
Love this primer!!
Shean from Columbia, Mon
I have very little eyelashes, they're short and can barely see them. When I use this then put on my mascara, it's like hello long lashes! It's a game changer! It's crazy how much it changes your lashes and gives you a fuller look. I'm getting my second one soon. It does show white if you use too much and use on all your lashes. I just put it on tips of my lashes and the mascara covers it perfectly. It smells really good too.

I saw this mentioned on YouTube. I had never used a mascara primer before but for this price I figured I'd give it a shot. I was pleasantly surprised. It increased staying power. I didnt see a dramatic change in the look of the mascaea but it stayed on significantly longer and better. I have so far only tried it with essence brand mascara. (The princess one)
Absolutely LOVE This
Crazy Becky from New York
Not only does this product REALLY help my lashes extend and fluff, but the white is AWESOME!!! I will sometimes just wear this for the unique look of having white lashes. But when you use this with ANY other mascara, my lashes triple in size!!!!!! There is no other primer for me anymore!!!!!
Longer lashes, small price
Linhalltn from Knoxville, TN
This product produces longer, fuller lashes and works almost as well as a high end primer, but costs a lot less!!
My go to budget friendly lash primer!!
Bombbbb lash primer! from San Diego
This primer is the BOMB.com!! I loved using the MILK MAKEUP Kush lash primer and this lash primer comes pretty darn close to it! It might be a little better! I definitely recommend it to people who haven't tried this product out yet. I have noticed that it helps keeps my mascara from running and feels healthy for my lashes.
Inexpensive, does the job

I like that the coating is visable so application is facilitated.
kreysa from New York
I don't normally care for lash primers. I've had them in the past but always threw them away because realized I never reach for them. Mostly because they didn't work for me but this Essence Volume Booster Lash Primer is life changing. It gives my lashes lenght, separates them make them look longer and thicker. It doesn't ruin the performance of the mascara and pairs with mant different brands or kinds of mascaras. Plus affordable. I will forever buy this primer.
Best one yet
Dani from Omaha,NE
Makes me eye lashes length so long! It is very inexpensive but works wonders! Worth it!
Omg - YES!!
JadeyBoo from Baton Rouge, Louisiana
This primer is amazing! It makes my eyelashes look so much thicker and longer with ANY of the mascaras I use! I find it to be lightweight and doesn't weigh down my lashes like others do and it's so much cheaper than most primers. Plus, it smells really good. It's all around a win-win product!!
Kaylay from So Cal
This was a huge flop but I'm glad I didn't spend but a couple bucks. I love most Essence mascaras, but this wasn't in the game of wins. Weighs your lashes down and didn't do much for look. On the plus side it doesn't show a white tint under mascara.
Clumpy and dry
Em from New Jersey
I really wanted to love this primer because so many others liked it. When I put it on it stays white and made my lashes dry and tangled. Putting mascara on top made it even worse :(
first time purchasing this
Masha from D62050460792
I have been using this for about 1 week. It gives my lashes good coverage and a good base coat of primer to top off with my mascara. I have tried 2 different kinds of mascara and they both work with this, so I think any mascara would. It does not cause flaking or irritate my eyes. makes my lashes appear thicker when I use it. I have been a Lancome user before this, but this was cheaper so I thought I'd give it a try. honestly works just as good I think.
Volume Booster Lash Primer

This is applied under mascara to help boost volume
I Wanted To Love It But
Echo from Springfield, OR
It causes so much clumping and I couldn't cover all of the white. It was a thick mess. However if you're looking for a dramatic white eyelash, this would be your choice.
Great & affordable

This does the job!

I use it everyday before applying Mascara and the price for this great primer is fabulous!
Perfect for colored mascara
Luna from San Jose CA
I tried this kind of on a whim, out of curiosity I suppose. I'm glad I did because I'm pleasantly surprised by it. I used it as a primer for my blue colored mascara. When I applied the primer I noticed that it wasn't a milky white color that I usually notice with other lash primers I use. You can tell because as it's drying down it not white anymore. But this one doesn't do that. It's pretty much a white primer, so when I applied the color mascara over it, it showed the true color. My lashes are black so I can never really get good color payoff or I have to apply a lot of coats which doesn't always turn out good. It wasn't hard to apply the blue mascara over it. So none of the white color was showing.
I'd say give it a try if your curious, it's very affordable which is also a plus.
Best affordable lash primer!
Em from Greenville, SC
This product works so well for me! Yesterday someone asked me if my lashes were real - all I used was this primer and a regular mascara. I highly recommend!
kimkatt from California
It wasn't a complete waste since it was so cheap but I prefer my lashes without this primer.
Ally from Michigan
Literally best primer every, you must buy!
my new go-to lash primer
koko bunny from lv
I've been testing this with a lot of different mascaras and it really does its job as a volume booster! Some of the mascaras I tested weren't really good with volume boosting but once I used this, it literally made any mascara look good on me! Plus, it's only like $5. I used to use pricey lash primer but honestly this one works just as well. I highly recommend.
Love this primer
Mich from Mesa,az
This lash primer gives my lashes a boost they have volume and stay curled all day even after a 12 hr shift
Bambi from Catawba, South Carolina
This made my lashes heavy and matted together. Mascara didn't apply well at all over this, wet or dry. Instead of beautiful lashes I was left with a hot mess. Maybe if you used the tiniest tiniest bit and feathered it through. I wouldn't bother with it.
colourpop lover from IL
i was hoping that this would actually work for my lashes, since I have short asian eyelashes. unfortunately, this did quite the opposite. did not even improve a single bit. i curled my lashes and then applied this product, but it undid the curl. doesn't work.
