I got this from a store closing sale for a dollar because of the reviews and I have to say, I don't think I would have gotten it for $3. Yea they are cheap but I still want a product to work. This does work ok, but I don't think I'd get it again since there are other primers out there. Plus the container is sooo small, I'm sure there's not a lot in there. I don't mind the handle too much, but again, it's not a great design idea. Idk I just didn't see too much of a difference in my mascara while using this. Maybe I just have a good mascara on it's own, idk.

The long handle is super awkward, but this primer is my h.g. It's boosted my mascara tremendously. I used to go through all kinds of mascaras trying to lengthen my short eyelashes, but this primer will make any mascara twenty times better. My eyelashes have never been more beautiful.

Pretty good primer! Helps to build volume and length. Not clumpy or goopy, doesn't change pigmentation of black mascara or turn it gray. It doesn't have fibers like some primers do, so it's not going to create some insane false lash effect.

The tube looks really long but it's actually a pretty small amount of product. Oh well, it's super cheap and does the job!

HOLY CRAP THIS IS AMAZING. I like to put this on after I do my eye makeup and before I put on my face makeup so it has time to dry before I do eyebrows and mascara. One coat makes your lashes look RIDICULOUSLY long, seriously. This is probably the most lengthening mascara I've ever used, and that's impressive to me since I have short, straight Asian lashes. I put about 2 coats on top and bottom lashes and then I put on whichever mascara I feel like using that day, but whichever mascara I use, I see a huge improvement in length! I'm just so blown away that my eyelashes could ever look decently long without fake lashes.

FYI, I haven't tried any other eyelash/mascara primers before so this review may be subject to change in the future.

I've relied on MUA for years. I'm a dedicated MAC user and while looking through reviews on their mascara primer I noticed a few different people saying that E.L.Fs version was just as good if not better and way cheaper. So I figured I would give this one a shot. I have to say I am really disappointed!! First - I had a really hard time finding it. They do not sell it here in my target stores so I looked for it online and saw I could buy it on their website - if I wanted to pay $5.00 for shipping on top of it! I finally found it on amazon for $6.00 which is double the price but still cheaper than buying it direct. When I finally got it I saw that while the box itself is the usual length for mascara - over half of that length is the application wand handle. The actual bottle of product is very very small. There is also very little product in the bottle itself and almost nothing comes out on the wand. I have to put 3 coats on just to get decent coverage. Once it's on it's pretty ok with thickening and lengthening but between the small amount of actual product and the amount I have to put on.. Buying MACs primer is by far a better deal. Don't waste your money!

It is the first lash primer I use :) And i love it!

-Elongates lashes
-Good packaging
-Very inexpensive
-The white does not mix with the black mascara to create grey

-It does uncurl my lashes...But i guess its normal, I never found a mascara that keeps my curl completly.

Must buy item! :)

I SWEAR by this stuff and keep a back up of at least 5. I have short, stubby lashes... I use a pretty good lash growth serum (I use LashFusion by Fushion beauty- the night time serum NOT the mascara). And although that has helped TREMENDOUSLY, I still need a boost from mascara (my eyelashes fall out very easily and are very brittle; I can only use Maybelline Full N' Soft Mascara). I put 2 coats of this on.. color in my brows while it dries and then apply my mascara. It does a very intense job of making my lashes look longer and fuller. My HG, for sure!

I LOOOOVE this stuff and definitely recommend! Uploaded a before and after pic ^^^^ so you all can decide for yourself. I am wearing one coat of ONLY the eyelash primer. This primer is easy to use, not messy or clumpy. The brush is a normal brush that does the job. Does a good job of applying evenly. The packaging is a sleek little black tube which is pretty nice. This primer lengthens my lashes, I feel like it actually leaves little white deposits on the tips of my lashes to extend them. That being said, it does come off a little white which could be con for some? I also do not notice any added volume but that does not bother me. I have not actually tested this, but one review I found said that this primer kept mascara from running down your face in humidity which is exactly why I bought it. I do feel like it prolonged my mascara wear and prevented flaking throughout the work day. It's only $3 so it's worth a try, but I will ALWAYS have AT LEAST one of these tubes in my makeup drawer!

I like this primer, it helps my mascara do its work! I will be buying again. I use it every day with no problems at all.
