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 had notice that my lashes were not as long and full like they use to be, so I though I would add this primer with my favorite mascara - Princess Lash - and so glad that I did :) Beyond amazing.
Best lash primer I've used so far.

The only other lash primer I've tried is L'oreal Lash Paradise, and I didn't like it. This formula is thinner and easier to apply, and my mascara was noticeably easier to apply. This is a winner at a great price.
Best lash primer I've ever tried!
Jessica from Frisco, Tx
Love this primer! So much better than more expensive brands!

sierra from ulta
i LOVE it. it doesn't clump my lashes and it makes them look so much fuller and longer!
I really wanted to love this
Sky from CT
I loveeee the Loreal and Covergirl primers, but I wanted to try something new this time around. I love Essence so I really wanted to love it, but this wasn't nearly as good. I have long, straight lashes, so I use primer to give them a lift and keep them in place, but this brush really does not grab onto your lashes well. The bristles are quite far apart so it kind of just combs the product through but doesn't do anything for length and volume. Also the rubber stopper really should be smaller because the wand collects A LOT of product.
fav eyelash primer

so smooth and definitely helps with mascara application
The absolute BEST
Lpeezy from Cincinnati, OH
I usually don't write reviews, however, this specific product needs it. I have tried so many eyelash primers, but this one takes the gold medal. It has the perfect brush that lengthens and separates my lashes, which stay separated even after applying mascara (I usually get stuck with the primer that clumps my lashes together, especially after I put my mascara on). Easily 10/10, HIGHLY recommend.
Megs from Ohio
Works great for the price!
If you let it dry out it works
LColl from Washington DC
This at first was so watery it did nothing for my lashes. I tried it again about a week after opening it and it had thickened significantly and actually built up decently. It's not my favorite but if you are on a budget this isn't a bad option.
Awesome primer and for the price
J from Tx
This was my second time buying this. I love it. I've used others before but this works great. It gets your eyelashes long and ready for that mascara magic!
Nicole from Texas
This product is awesome! I wasn't even on the look for lash primer but when looking around in Ulta I noticed it was really cheap so decided to try it out! This stuff works soo good and made my lashes so much longer! It didn't show the white once I applied my mascara like some other lash primers do. I definitely recommend, very affordable and works very well if you want longer lashes!
Not a difference
Brit from Wisconsin
This is a nice lash primer. Overall, I didn't really notice a difference in my lashes. Probably would not rebuy after I am done using.
The best from California
I use it for my bottom lashes and it's amazing 😻
This is a great primer. It will go up against any high price
Trina from TN
This is a great low priced primer. I will put it up against the more expensive ones any day
as good as my T*rte lash primer ☺️
Dr. Sushi from St. Louis
I got my T@rte lash primer on sale, and it was still 3x the cost of this!! This is really good. The only thing I don't like is the brush. It's the plastic spikey "brush" type and it pokes my water line when I'm applying it (eventhough I know how to apply it correctly). I took 2 stars off for this because for me, this is a big problem.
Journey from NC
I've always used the L'Oréal lash primer, but essence has great mascaras so I figured I'd try this out. So glad I did!! The wand really grabs all of your lashes and layers on thick without being clumpy. It lifted my lashes as well- it really looked as if I'd gotten an actual lash lift. I put on 2 coats of this, letting it dry in between coats. So good!
It was not what I expected!
Mimi from Florida
It adds lot of length to my lashes. So if you're looking for length its really good. But i was looking for more volume. Since it does claim to be volumizing. And it takes a really long time to dry.
Makes my lashes 10x longer really good with there princess m
Gracie from Morristown
Love this product smells good and preforms amazing
I love this product. I get gorgeous, full lashes!
Sherrie from Syracuse, NY
Amazing product! I use to use so much mascara, now I use much less with a fuller, longer lasting effect.
Shelley from Lester Prairie, MN
I use this before my mascara. I wait til it is dry and then apply mascara per normal.
Definitely makes my lashes look thicker.
juliet from co
its so nice! I honestly didn't expect it to work so well it gives my lashes a boost and I'm noticing they look thicker and no lashes are galling out when I am washing my face!!!
Kristen from Alabama
Makes my mascara a little clumpy
i would not recommend
cristina from los angeles
not good i curled my pashes and i applied this and they went down it got all ugly
Candace from Port Charlotte FL
This is great for any prep of other mascaras. It works great just by itself but obviously nobody wants to wear just white mascara.
