Before I received a sample of this product, I thought the premise was ridiculous: an extra mascara step for $22? But this product made a noticeable difference on the volume and length of my lashes! Really does the job well!

Absolutely love this primer! Makes lashes look longer and thicker instantly when mascara applied over. I'm obsessed!

I've never used a lash primer before but got this as a bonus from Sephora. It's fantastic! It preps the lashes so that they don't clump or smudge your eye makeup when applying mascara. I'm sold! Note that it will make your lashes stark white when applied. Fear not, it all works out in the end after mascara application. Removal of mascara when using this product is a breeze too!

I actually got this in the 12 little treats box, and though I don't usually use a primer for my mascara I find myself loving this one. It definitely makes the mascara work wonders on my lashes!! The look fuller and definitely longer, would be purchasing in the future.
