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.

I used this with my green Princess False Lash effect mascara also by essence. And noticed it does make them long, as well as helping them stay curled for longer. I noticed my mascara didn't smudge as much with it either. My recommendation is to apply it and make sure it's completely dry before putting a mascara on top of it.
My only complaint is that it's hard to cover the color (it's white) so I found myself applying more mascara than usual
Ok WOW just wow!

For the price you absolutely cannot beat it. I've tried the Lancôme primer and honestly this stuff is better! I liked the mascara so I decided to branch out and try other products by this brand and I am so glad i did!
Sierra from Utah
So good and smells amazing, I don't think it gives a ton of volume but for the price that it is it's perfect!
kboggs from Illinois
My lashes absolutely suck at holding a curl. After I apply mascara, they always fall down very quickly, no matter what I do. This helps my lashes hold a curl for much longer. It also really helps separate my lashes, add volume and keep them from getting too clumpy. As long as you don't apply too much, it's easy to cover up the white of the primer with mascara. I absolutely love this underneath the L'Oréal Bambi Eyes mascara. Definitely will be my go to combo for the foreseeable future.
Great product, highly recommend!

Great smell and great product
Great scent, and works well!
Becky from Mississippi
It turns your lashes white (duh). Just make sure to give it enough time to dry. It gave me some great extra length!
Great lash product
AJBlack15 from Indiana
Great product to give volume and length to your lashes. Wears well and lasts all day.
Really wanted to like it
Hanah from Minneapolis
It gets way too clumpy when applying, even when I try to brush off most of the product, it's still so much! I really wish it wasn't so clumpy, otherwise I would be a devoted fan.
Ugly White Pigment
Sarah from Michigan
This works really well with my everyday mascara but the white pigment is off-putting. It kind of looks like I am putting white-out on my eyelashes and seems a little unnecessary for it to work. It does amazing job as a primer with the RIGHT mascara. I tried it with another mascara and it looked absolutely awful. If you do purchase this; keep in mind your mascara's formula may not work well with it.
use a light hand
Cupkates from usa
It is definitely goopier than lancome, but it's also way way less. I've only ever used it with essence mascara and I've never had any issues covering my lashes completely as others have said. I do my right eye then left then apply mascara on right then left so it's not completely dry, just tacky.
I swear it curls my lashes! The combination of this with essence lash princess is out of this world! It doesn't get all over my lid like many mascaras do. Not five stars because sometimes it does come out with too much product and I don't notice until it's gooping my eyelashes together. But a simple run with an eyelash separator usually does the trick!
doesn't apply enough product
Lena from Nebraska
The wand doesn't deliver enough a product. This might be a great primer but it takes several coats to actually get it on my lashes.
Super good! Great price 👍🏻
Vintagegalmeg from Upstate ny
AMAZING product ! Perfect when paired with the lash princess mascara ! It seriously makes my lashes look like falsies💖
Isabella from Phoenix
It's not the best and takes long to dry.
Length maybe, volume no
citygrrl76 from Chicago
It's ok. I'm not wow'd. Doesn't seem to matter which mascara I use; I'll keep trying. I'm kinda meh about it, but I'm giving it 3 stars Because it's so white, it would make a blue mascara really pop.
This takes mascara to a whole new level!
Leslieniqole from Alamogordo nm
This seriously makes mascara a million times better. Believe it or not, my lashes tend to group if that makes sense. This helps separate them and my mascara goes on flawless.
Leen from West Virginia
Loved this product. Will continue to use
Angie from Yay Area
Clumpy/messy. Did nothing for my lashes except make it wetter and heavier with mascara on.
Not a bad product, but not worth a purchase IMO
SJ from Asheville, NC
I got this during the Essence BOGO half off sale along with the Essence Lash Princess mascara. It's difficult to apply, as in hard to get even layers. When I tried to apply the actual mascara on top of this (waited for the primer to dry as instructed on the Essence website), the mascara was patchy and you could still see the white primer through it. It added volume for sure, but not worth the hassle associated with it IMO.
Sahar479 from Arkansas
I only use enough to coat my lashes. Less is more in this case! Paired with the lash princess mascara- you'll look like you are wearing falsies!!!
Lana from Utah
Omg I got this product on accident and I'm so super happy, was not expecting to have such great results. I love long lashes but I do t wear falsies so with this primer I only need 1-2 coats of mascara and my lashes look gianormous
Did not work out. . .
Toya from Houston, Texas
Wanted to try this since I heard the mascaras were pretty good, so I thought why not. Got home tried it out and trashed it, you get what you pay for was true in this case. Makeup is trial and error so, I will be trying the Marc Jacobs primer heard good things about that one. But this one was a fail for me personally, I have naturally long and curly lashes, but this primer did nothing for me FYI I paired it with Essence mascaras, Too Faced better than sex and NARS climax. The mascaras wore better without the primer.
it works great
carmen from hi
it works so well and a good price
I would buy this again
Sandy from Amherst, NY
Really made a difference in how my mascara went on
Not bad but probably would not purchase again
Becc from Philadelphia
It's a good product but I don't think I would purchase again because I don't often use a primer. Coats lashes well but need to apply your mascara right away before it dries. Throughout the day you can see the white if the primer showing through.
Great for everyday
Hannah K from NY
I use this product everyday. I feel like it makes my mascara last longer and nourishes my lashes. Please continue making this product!
