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.

I have never really used eyelash primer on my lashes before but I saw this when I was looking at the hard candy display and decided to try it. for me, i had to apply a lot of this product to see any difference. once i did and applied my mascara, my lashes were thick and full. You cant see the fibers that you see on the brush on your lashes but you can tell their totally there.

I bought this lash primer yesterday after lusting after it for a while, but not getting it because I wasn't sure how well it would work. I tried it this morning and found out that it didn't work... at all. I applied a coat of it to my lashes and couldn't get the fibers to stick, so I applied a second coat as I would normally apply mascara and wiggled the applicator slightly from side to side as I pulled it up on my lashes and that finally got some product to stick. I've heard that it's best to apply mascara while the primer is still wet so I grabbed my MAC mascara and applied two coats. My eyelashes looked pretty good, but I wanted to see if the primer really worked, so instead of priming my second set of lashes I just put the mascara on. Lo and behold, there was absolutely no difference. I even gave my roommate a blind test and asked which lashes looked better (i.e. longer, fuller, darker) and she said the ones without the primer! This product isn't awful, but it doesn't do much- so buying it is basically a waste of money.

I have been blessed with naturally long, dark lashes, but I rely on mascara for the false lash look I love, but lately I've been disappointed with every mascara purchase I've made. Seems like I can't find anything that works like it used to, so after seeing this at my local Walmart for 6 bucks, thought I'd give it a try as I've used similar products in the past with good results. I love this stuff! It actually does what it says - at least for me. I thought it went on very easily. I didn't have to struggle to get the fibers on - and it coated every lash very well. I applied it to one eye first then did mascara....then followed with the other eye. On my 2nd eye I applied mascara more quickly (while the primer was still wet) this seemed to work a bit better than applying it while the primer was more dry - which is what I did on my first application. So far I am loving this stuff....but I've only had it a few days. I will do a follow-up if for some reason I end up not liking it. (i.e.; it dries out too quickly in the tube, etc.)

I absolutely hated this stuff. Maybe I just go a bad batch? just too thick to go onto the lashes smoothly, the formula is similar to a face cream almost. So what little product that actually gets onto the lashes, clumps up quickly. I've tried this stuff every way I could think of to get it to work, I tried moisturizing my lashes first, I tried putting a drop or two of coconut oil on the brush to soften it a bit but nothing works. Total waste of money.

I love this primer. i love fiber- anything. for my lashes, haha. i've used this for a couple months now and it makes my lashes just a tiny bit longer than when i use mascara without it. so it's just so-so in that aspect. BUT this primer is excellent at preventing my mascara from smudging. i have very oily skin and it's a chore just trying to get makeup to stay on my face. but this will keep them on and i won't have raccoon eyes at the end of the day. hooray! it's actually easy to get this stuff on. just work it through from root to tip and use the tip to dispense a lot of the fibers. you'll end up with white fibery lashes every time.

I did see little white fibers collect at the end of my lashes. *I can do multiple coats and actually get a good little extension. *
this is not a HG-SOULTION to all of everybody's wants.
but it Does do what it claims.
smell is faint and then disappears -kinda like childrens paper glue sent
tube is like a toothpaste tube but not collapsible
all-in-all if it was on sale or BOGO of such nature....I WOULD buy again

Despite other reviews I have read I enjoy this product. I don't find that it clumps or smears. I also haven't had any problems with the fibers getting in my eyes... This Mascara gives me longer, volumized lashes that don't feel spidery or crunchy. I would recommend this product!

This is the first lash primer I've tried and I like it. I don't love it, but I like it. I've noticed a difference when I use this and when I don't. I won't wear mascara without it.I don't love it though, because it IS hard to get product on your lashes, so what
I do is use the tip of the wand because it usually has a lot of product on it, so I don't actually use the bristles unless I need to even the prime on my lashes. It's also VERY bothersome when the fibers get into your eyes. I would buy it again, but I'm on the hunt for something better.

d*amn you hard candy and your marketing team, knowing how seductive the tagline "lash weave" would be!
i totally fell for it. even had my boyfriend search walmart high and low for this product (originally wanting a colored mascara but settled on the primer). oh, what an easy mark i am. this is garbage and makes no impact whatsoever. pointless. gave it 2/5 because it had no adverse effects.

I hated this product so much and I don't hate much in this world.
I tried it as soon as I got home. It was a wal-mart day so there was no makeup to take off. I put on a fresh face and began to prime my eyes. I could not get the fibers to stick to my lashes so I tried applying clear mascara first then the primer. That kinda worked. Then I tried a second time and tried applying the product vertically (windshield wiper motion) on top of a small amount of regular mascara and some of the fibers fell into one eye.
**DO NOT GET THIS IN YOUR EYES - PAIN WILL ENSUE!**
I began to cry like the time I lied to my mom so I could go to the mall.
It's currently sitting in my vanity area - maybe I will try it again with the windshield wiper motion but mostly I'm just scared to try it once more. Also the tube is really hard, like molded plastic so you can't just squeeze the product out and attempt to plaster it to your lashes. The whole situation with this primer made me re-think my love of makeup. For shame Hard Candy!!

Hate this stuff. Could not get fibers to stick to my lashes. Waste of money.

Okay so I wanted to compare this to the Smashbox lash primer that I have used in the past. I like lash primers but consider them a luxury purchase. This does take some effort to actually get a lot of the product on your lashes (pumping, digging the handle around) and I don't apply it from the bottom up...doing it that way doesn't get any of the primer on your lashes. I have to move it like a windshield wiper across my lashes to make it work.
So this does work for me. Even if each tube only lasts a month (not sure since I am still on my first one), it is a bargain at the $5 I paid. I would prefer to use the high end one but this will do.
Edit: after buying my second tube and struggling to get product out and ON to my lashes, I just went and bought the Smashbox lash primer.

As a college student, I can't always spring for the high-end stuff... enter Hard Candy. My lashes are pretty average, and I don't like to wear false ones, so I knew I had to get myself an eyelash primer. The fibers are a little tough to get on to your lashes (you'll need a little patience) but it's not impossible. The product does work - my lashes are much, much more impressive when I use it. I would like to get something a touch higher-end when this runs out, but for the money it can't be beat.
