I found this to be a really nice primer. It may take getting used to for some. It took me a few tries, but now I really like it. I use it under a Cover Girl mascara(in the purple tube) & it made my eyes pop! I went to a showing of a photo I took & I got a lot of compliments on my eyes. I didn't have any trouble with flakes getting in my eyes & it lasted for hours. I don't recommend putting it on your bottom lashes, but that's just me, I just use a clear mascara on my bottom lashes because my lashes are naturally black. I don't use the primer for everyday looks, I only use it when I really want my eyes to show off, like, say, going on a date(what's that?) going to dinner with family or friends or other events that might require a bolder look.
Not the best primer out there, but good primer for the price. And available at Walmart.

Well, when I was little I got the idea that if i 'trimmed' my lashes theyd grow back even thicker, longer, and fuller than ever!.. Aaaand it kinda didnt work >.:) lol
I like the fuzzies! continued >>
This is a very nice item that I lucked out & found at WalMart for $6. I wear primer & mascara every single day and this one prevents my mascara from smudging (all day long) and it does an excellent job of enhancing the appearance of my mascara too.
The downside of this primer is that it does apply a bit thickly. The formula seems to be drier than that of the department store brands. It's true that you get what you pay for, but this product delivers a lot of value for a very small price.
I had run out of my Clinique Lash Building Primer and I was disappointed by the DiorShow Lash Plumping Serum. I was looking for a cheaper alternative, and I came to find out that there actually aren't that many drugstore lash primers out there apart from the L'oreal double-ended mascara/primer duos. You usually have to go high-end (Lancome, Estee Lauder, Clinique, Dior, etc.) So I was thrilled just to find this product at all.
For a drugstore product, it performs very well. I think the key is the design of the brush- the wiry fibers are really long so the spaces in between are nice and deep. This allows for really smooth application, no clumping. And when I use this, even my Jordana mascara stays put all day- and it always smudges on me, but not with this. I am so glad I stumbled upon this- it's a real drugstore gem! It starts to dry out after a month or two and needs to be replaced because it doesn't work as well after that. I have already purchased two back-ups of this and highly recommend it!
I actually really like this. I've had it for maybe a year now and honestly I could say I love it. It does help eyelashes hold a curl, it adds moderate volume, and it adds a little length. If you swirl the wand inside the tube instead of pumping it you get more product, but usually I just apply it normally, then I take the tip and vertically apply it to areas which (sadly) are more sparse than other parts of my eyelashes, then I run it through normally again, I let it dry a few seconds (15 maybe), then I apply my mascara very slowly as to not let the curl fall (because this will add weight while it's all still wet). It isn't as complicated as the double ended tubes of mascara because with those I ALWAYS end up with white primer showing, but with HC's lash weave I don't because it doesn't add so much product in the first place which I honestly consider a good thing. I recommend it
I have been using this for a few days, and i definitely notice a difference, it's alot eaiser for the little fibers too go on if you take the tip of the brush, then rub it across your lashes, then go over with the wand like a normal mascara.
That worked alot better for me .
I think for it's price it's a pretty nice product, because the only mascara primers you really see is by L'oreal, and they tend too be really thick, and gross.
this one is not like that at all,
will for sure re-purchase.
This review is for the white mascara primer.
I bought the primer one which is a white color and I thought it would be better then other white primers since most of mine came in a duo with step 1 and step 2. But those still turned out to be better then this. I could see the fibers on the wand, but they were barely going on my lashes eventually the fibers did clings to my lashes but not enough I would say. I layered it since it looked anorexic and to get the full effect of the fibers but it still wasn't enough and did not perform to my expectations. When I get get an adequate amount of fibers on my lashes looks spidery and clumpy. I even tried it with different mascaras and still didn't make a noticeable difference or just didn't look good. I love the HC line at Walmart and this is one of the first things I've purchased that was a disappointment. Oh and how could I forget to mention this all those fiberized particles flake off through out the day. This product boo.. I prefer loreal double extend with lash boosting serum step 1 followed with a different mascara n it is the bomb as a primer
-No animal testing
-reasonable price/easy to get (Hard Candy is available at most Walmarts)
-Doesn't deliver much volume
-doesn't deliver much length
packaging-3 kinda looks like a small tube of toothpaste dont like
The good thing, is that this is cheap. The bad thing is that I don't notice any difference when using this. I did the same thing that another reviewer did in that I put it on one eye and not the other. I used CG Lash Perfection and low and behold if I could not even tell which eye I used it on. Total bummer. This morning I tried rolling the wand inside the tube instead of pumping it and it got a little better but honestly, none of the fibers seem to attach to your lashes. I tried putting on a coat of mascara, using this, and then another coat. My lashes looked a little longer but they got a little spidery looking. I may keep using this but likely it will end up in the trash.
I bought the primer and a color with it(indigo). The color doesn't show up incredibly well, but it is better than anything else I have used, especially for a drugstore brand. It is very colorful in the sun, though! :) The primer itself is pretty good-I like the super-fibrous texture that really fills and thickens lashes, but it may not be for everyone, as it really is quite thick.
I borrowed this specifically to review, but I didn't really have high hopes for it at all. I haven't used a lash primer since way back when...when drugstore brands were making a killing off of the latest "thing" by having double-ended mascaras with a primer on one side. Well, thankfully Hard Candy's Fiberized Lash Weave was nothing like those. I can recall them being very thick, goopy and truly doing almost nothing at all in the way of making your mascara do it's job any better.
When I first opened this primer, I noticed little white "hairs" covering the wand's bristles and entrance, so naturally I was a little terrified that this would turn my eyelashes into some kind of tarantula-like disaster. Thankfully this wasn't true.
For reference, my eyelashes are rather long, pretty curled, and of medium density. Yes, lots of mascaras can make my lashes look really good but there are just as many that will turn them into a clumpy mess. After applying Hard Candy's Fiberized Lash Weave to my eyelashes, I was a little wowed by how much oomph this brought to my natural curl. I suddenly looked so much more alert and my eyelashes were fanned out beautifully. They didn't feel or even look coated. My lashes looked so nice in fact, that I didn't want to put mascara on over this at all. I was in love.
I'd also borrowed a Hard Candy mascara to try (different story entirely...), so I applied it over the primer. To be short, this would be be ideal under mascaras that need some extra help separating or preventing clumps. I don't think that it added much to the length as far as coating the lashes, but it did make them appear longer by aiding the curl of my lashes. It'd be great for setting lashes after curling them. I did notice that the primer made the application of the mascara incredibly wet (I compared it to the other eye by not using primer on it), even after waiting a few minutes between the two applications. It was hard to add a second coat to the mascara as well as it didn't appear to make a difference at all.
While I do like this product, I think it could do a lot better. I don't think it kept this mascara from flaking off, nor did it make my actual lashes look any longer vs. the same mascara without primer.
