I was having trouble with all mascara smearing, even the waterproof ones, on my bottom lashes especially. With this product, I just slap any old mascara on...usually whatever I have received as a GWP recently. I tried the American Beauty product from Kohl's suspecting it was the same stuff since both companies are owned by Estee Lauder (or so I believe), but the AB didn't work and I returned it and went back to this. The only problem is that a lot of extra product comes out around the brush when the tube is new, which is annoying since it's being wasted, and I have to buy this in addition to mascara (well, in theory anyway). Haven't tried the Shishedio that so many have recommended but won't bother assuming this is cheaper.

I like this becasue my mascara comes off easily when I wash my face...I have very thick, thick long lashes (I know, dont hate me) so this adds extra goop that I dont need. I like it better 1/2 way through the tube then how it is right at the very beginning!

I am glad that I received a sample of this and didn't buy it. Although it does give my lashes some length and thickness, it doesn't hold the curl well (from an eyelash curler). Maybe I'll wear this to bed (and scaring my husband at the same time - hee hee!), if it does have some sort of "lash building" property to it.

I suppose if I hadn't known about the Shiseido mascara base (similar product), I would really like this product. However, the Clinique primer just isn't as good as the Shiseido one. One positive attribute is that the Clinique Lash Building Primer does build good length and volume. Unfortunately, it doesn't hold the curl from my eyelash curler nor does it build as much volume/length as the Shiseido mascara base (which is why I have rated it only 3). Ladies (and gentlemen?), buy the Shiseido mascara base instead! :)

I can do without this one.Only with a lengthening mascara this will do it's work and add some volume.I can't see any difference using it with a volume building mascara at all.Instead I can layer the mascaras with the same effect, hence not necessary in my makeup wardrobe.I have medium length, straight lashes - and Estee Lauders Lash Primer Plus has a better impact on them.Will definately not buy again.UPDATE: I have been using it while sleeping instead of tossing it, to "nourish" my lashes. I'm not sure, but my lashes appear longer now and they don't fall out as much as before. But definately still not usable under mascara.

I love this stuff. I got it as a sample with a GWP and never looked back. It goes on smoothly, and makes your mascara go on so smoothly. It also prevents eyelash breakage, at least in my experience. I did an experiment where I wore this on one eye with my HG mascara (Clinique Lash Doubling), and just mascara on the other eye (with no eye lash curler on either). The one with the primer was significantly longer, smoother looking, and curled. The other one was just ok. It make me realize that the primer was what made the mascara so good! I use it with every mascara now, except waterproof ones as I feel it would effect that quality. This will not make your mascara smear either! Try it next time Clinique has a GWP (it's only $12.50) and see the difference. BTW, I am a length over volume girl. This adds some volume, but nothing dramatic. If that is what you are after, unless you have naturally thick lashes, this may not work for you.

Sorry Clinique, you struck out big time with this product. On me it did not hold a curl and only MODERATELY lengthened. Big disappointment. My HG remains Shiseido Mascara Base. I will not repurchase.

This lash primer is great for making my lashes a little longer (every bit counts). And my mascara goes on more smoothly and with less flakes and smudging. I do what an early poster said--apply primer, then apply mascara while the primer is still wet. The results are fabulous!

I purchased the lash building primer along with the High Impact mascara. I adore the mascara, i love how it makes my lashes long thick glossy and glamourous. I'm not sure how I liked the primer though. I felt it made my laskes stick together!!! I am going to purchase it again to give it another try because alot of my friends love this primer.

I *REALLY* wanted to like Clinique Lash Building Primer after hearing raves on makeup board and reading good reviews here. However, after giving it about 5 tries, I gave up. I have naturally long lashes, but they are stick straight w/ not so much volume. I was hoping that this lash primer will hold curls that I had created w/ the help of my HG Maybelline metal lash curler and give more volume when I apply mascara over it. Sadly, it did none of that. It actually weighed down my lashes making it straight again. Normally, my lashes stay curled when only mascara is applied to them. As far as creating volume, it does gather more mascara around individual lashes, so in turn making the lashes look bit more thicker than it actually does and that's the reason why I gave two lippies instead of one. But, when it does that, it clumps up my lashes so I have to use lash comb to separate them. This product did nothing to improve the look of my lashes, so it went back to the Clinique counter. I will not recommend this to anyone and I definitely will not purchase this again.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
