If you’ve never tried eyelash primer, and you don’t want to make a major investment on something you’re not sure you’ll love, this L’Oréal lash primer is the perfect first step. It was my first primer too, and I still use it. I discovered it quite by accident because my mom’s lashes looked so long and lush, I asked if she’d started curling her eyelashes.
She handed me her tube to try, and wow – what a difference. My naturally straight lashes curled up and stayed that way, even after I put on my mascara. While it’s pretty thick in consistency, it goes on quite smoothly, and once dried you can see your lashes looking boosted significantly.
This primer is infused with rose oil which makes mascara adhere better to lashes. That allows you to use less mascara than you might normally, because you really need only one coat to make your lashes look amazing. While it doesn’t claim to increase lash growth, it definitely does allow you to stop using your eyelash curler so much, which can make a big difference in lash health, long term.
If you want one less tube of lash product in your makeup bag, check out the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Superstar Washable Mascara. It comes in a two-part tube, with primer on one end and mascara on the other. Very handy, especially for travel.
If you don’t mind two tubes, and you want full sizes of each of the mascara and eyelash primer, consider the L’Oreal Paris Cosmetics Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara, in addition to this primer. You’ll be all in for just slightly less than twenty bucks for both.
