When I first heard about Mascara primers I was really not interested but when a fellow Blogger @beauty.maven posted about the Loreal Primer on her Instagram I felt a sudden urge to try it. This primer is sold at most drugstores but I found Target sold it for the cheapest at $5.99.
Per the Target.com website it states: “The perfect pair for your favorite mascara to maximize every lash look. Lightweight primer instantly creates a boosting effect, building dramatic volume and length on each lash. Conditions lashes over time for soft nourished lashes. Use with your favorite mascara to amplify any lash look. Instantly Thicker, Longer Lashes Mascara Amplifier Lash Conditioner”
Sounds amazing right?!!!? Well let me tell you…. it is!!!! So I decided to experiment and try it with 5 of my favorite mascaras.
L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara: The primer made this mascara apply much smoother with less clumps and had less fall out. Cover Girl Lash Blast: PS this is my HOLY GRAIL mascara. It goes on smooth with the primer however it really did not do anything to change the over all application or staying power. I was a bit surprised but I was also okay with this because I have no complaints to begin with. Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real: WOW this primer just took this mascara to the next level in the length department. If you have not tried this mascara you need to. Too Faced Better Than Sex: I was the most excited about this because I love this mascara but I experience so much fall out I can not wear it. Until now! I experienced no fall out with it paired with the primer.Benefit Bad Gal Lash: It goes on smooth with the primer however just like the Cover Girl Lash Blast it really did not do anything to the all around application or staying power. I have no complaints about this mascara either so this was not disappointing to me.Would I recommend this primer? YES!!! For $5.99 its worth a shot because even on the two mascaras where I did not notice a difference it still helped all 5 go on smoother. With the primer helping with clumps, fall out and making your lashes stand out even better you can’t go wrong. I am now on the hunt for more mascara primers to test out. Leave in the comments some I should try. Have you tried this primer? I would love to hear your experience with it!
