I've tried many primers with short, thin lashes, and this particular primer is the BEST. It is so moisturizing and nourishing that after I apply it and my Tarte mascara, my eyelashes are so soft once the mascara has dried. I don't apply any mascara without this as it keeps all mascaras from clumping up. I use a separate mascara brush to thin out the lashes and smooth out the mascara after application and my husband who hates heavy makeup can't tell that I'm wearing mascara.

I have really short and straight eyelashes so I love using a primer to make my mascara go on better! I use this after curling my lashes and it works really well to lengthen them and give volume. I also liked the sample mascara it came with.
