Glad it was cheap because I threw it away

Normally I’m nearly always thrilled at the beauty products I buy on amazon. This was not the case with this product. Instructions state to put on lashes and let dry fully before you apply mascara. So I did just that, a good 1/2 hour before. It clumps my lashes together and actually the mascara doesn’t seem to last as long. It actually looks like I have less lashes and thinner at that. So I tried it again for the next several days, maybe I need more, or less, or more at the tips, or at the base. After many different levels of application, I came to the conclusion that this simply doesn’t work at all. I tossed it and my lashes look better with the MAC false lash mascara alone. Don’t bother, it’s not like it cost very much, but it was a dissapointment.

dried out

I think this may be an old stock, because this product seemed a little dry and gunky. It did not do much for my lashes in terms of appearance, but it made mascara a bit easier to apply– the mascara goes on more smoothly and I need to use less mascara when I already have a base of this stuff. It seems to work best when the mascara is applied before the primer is fully dry. I did need to use a lash comb to remove some clumps from the primer. This may be because the stock seems slightly old and dried out. I find that using a mascara primer (any kind) protects against lash fall-out and damage from daily mascara use.

Fantastic

I have used this product for a while and I can’t say enough good things about it! My lashes have grown since I started using it at night before going to bed and this makes run of the mill drugstore mascara look like a million bucks!

Extra length

I find that this primer gives my lashes extra length, so I like it. Can’t complain for the three dollars I paid for it off the ELF website.

Save your money

This made my lashed clumpy, waist of time and money. I gave into the hype about this primer, you definitely get what you pay for.

for those occasions when you want a more dramatic look

I’d been using one of the false fiber mascaras (from L’Oreal) but got tired of the constant clumping. I’ve had some luck with other elf products (blush, mascara, eyeshadow primer), so I decided to try the elf mascara primer.I put this on and let it dry for a minute or two. I then used some elf mascara (in black) over it. I noticed a pretty dramatic difference in the appearance of my eyelashes. They definitely looked longer and darker. This product didn’t clump or flake at all, for me. It also seems to last the whole day; I wore it to work and my eyelashes looked the same at the end of the day as they did at the beginning (so I had it on for about 10 hours).I am not using this every day; it’s a little dramatic for the office (for me, personally, anyway). But if you just want a little extra length sometimes and don’t want to switch from a trusted mascara, this primer might be just the thing you’re looking for.
