i was so excited to try this out.. it sucked for me. it didnt lengthen, hold my curl (which is why i bought this), or volumize. after i curled my lashes and put this mascara base on it totally caused the curl to droop back into straight non-visible lashes. not fun. i thought maybe i put too heavy of a coat on so i tried only one coat this time, and yet again my curl totally dropped. i wouldnt recommend this, and i wish they didnt discontinue the cils booster original one because i've heard good reviews on that. :(
I have tried many lash/mascara primers in the past, this is by far the best I have ever used.I have tried it with several different Lancome mascaras, and works well with them all.
The trick is not to let it get dry before applying mascara, but on the other hand, if you put your mascara on too quickly, the primer doesn't really do the job properly. I have found that waiting just about one minute, works perfectly. If you let it dry any longer than that, your mascara will be very flaky and spikey, and not go on smoothly.
I just purchased some of Lancomes new "oscillating" mascara, and the Cils Booster combined with this mascara works wonders. One coat booster, wiat one minute, then apply on top of upper lashes, then stroke up under the upper lashes. Then do bottom lashes. Then go back to upper lashes immediately and apply one more coat swooping under the lashes.
The effect is fabulous, and looks like you are wearing false eyelashes !!
This is a good base - when I use with mediocre mascara it improves the mascara. It is the only ascara base I have ever used, so I am not sure how it compares with others.
It didn't work for me at all. I've tried using a lot, a little, and almost nothing. I've tried letting it dry before applying mascara, not letting it dry. I've done everything. I don't see any difference, no boosting, thickening, nada.
This was a fairly good mascara base. It did not clump my lashes and added slightly to my lash length. However I have yet to find a base that is worth another step. The difference just isn't obvious enough for me.
Decent mascara base. It's one of the first ones I have tried so I don't have much to compare it to. Since it's white, I could see that it was clumping a lot at the base of the brush rather than the product sticking to the brush so it made it difficult to apply. I had to reapply several times which was time consuming. Once I did get it on my eyes, it did make my eyelashes look really good and they lasted.
I like this product a lot, but it took a bit of testing to see the best way to use it. let it dry too long, and you get hard lashes when the mascara goes on. dont let it dry enough, and it doesn't do anything. I've found the trick is to let it dry for about 15-20 seconds before putting mascara on. It really lengthens my lashes and gives them a lot of definition. I would buy it again, but sometimes just a little bit of patience and a lash comb will do the same exact thing.
I really appreciate this product because I love big false-looking lashes. This product definitely plumps and volumizes your lashes before applying mascara. It also makes it to wear you only need one coat of mascara to get the same effect as if you applied several coats. You need to make sure you are careful with the application and seperate the lashes as you apply or you will end up with a big clumpy mess and lashes that are hard to seperate. I've purchased this product more than once and I will continue to purchase unless I can find something comparable for cheaper!
I received this product as a sample in one of the free gifts. I used it for several weeks and absolutely fell in love. I just went and purchased a full sized tube. I apply it, let it dry and then apply either defenicils or hypnose mascara! It adds to the volume and length to my lashes! For me this along with the lancome mascaras are probably my all time favorite products. And I am VERY picky!
I was disappointed with this product. It's not the easiest to use and it clumps! I was told that mascara had to be applied while the booster is still wet. I applied it while the booster was wet and dry. Either way, my mascara still clumped. Will not repurchase.
Update: I stopped using this and restarted using it recently and it's working much better. I've noticed that it works better with certain mascaras, especially Nyx Doll Eyes. Using both makes my lashes look fake because make my lashes quite long. In comparing the Sheisedo base and the Lancome base, I prefer the Lancome base.
