Wow! I am so surprised at the older, bad reviews. I just love this stuff. I found out I need to apply the mascara immediately, before the Cils has time to dry. That really helps. My eyelashes curl by themselves now! And it come off easily. The cosmetician said woman use less mascara with this and I can see that may be true. It especially helps my thinner lower lashes. I don't know if they've improved this stuff since the bad reviews, but it sure has worked for me - no matter which mascara I happen to have in my hand.

WOW am I impressed! (This is for the XL Cils Booster.) I had been wanting to try a mascara base for some time, and it was between this, MAC, and Shiseido. Well, Shiseido was slightly more expensive and MAC's reviews were so-so. As a result, I choose this. The rave review may be because I have never tried a mascara base before but omg omg wow. I put this on and it does look slightly milky at the tips of my lashes and follow immediately with my mascara (currently MAC's Dazzlelash) and am amazed at how beautiful, long, and lush my lashes look. It's strange too... my mascara doesn't smudge all day (even through a short nap one day), but when I go to take it off at the end of the day, it slides right off, no objections. My curled lashes held, but they have a somewhat natural curl to begin with.

My lashes were long enough to touch my brows! (And I have high brows.) They were full, beautiful, and SOFT! Will be repurchasing, although I will eventually give Shiseido and MAC a try.

You know, most mascaras promise the world and most of the time they barely deliver. Which is why I decided to give this a try and I must say, that I am very impressed. It really helps in maximising my eyelashes - I've even gotten compliments from friends for the new and improved lashes!

That said, I've only tried the XL Booster. When I was in Singapore and Malaysia, the only Booster I could find was the Triple Care one. I'm not sure if it's a different formula or anything but based on one try, they seem to work similarly. Will update this review after I've tried it a few more times.

I usually like Lancome's mascara and I thought I would like cils booster but I actually can't! It make my curled lash flat almost immediately, it felt pretty droopy to the lash, very heavy, I really can't curl my poor short lash what so ever after applying this, I definitely will use other brand of mascara primer than this.

Wow. It makes such a difference in the length and the definition of my eyelashes, everytime I use it people tell me how long my eyelashes are. To get better results, regular mascara should be put immediately after Cils Booster (before it dries).

This product didn't live up to the hype for me, it didn't hold a curl, which was the most important factor for me when I'm looking for a base. As for the lengthening effect, it was ok, nothing too fantastic. Shiseido's mascara base worked better for me.

This formula makes my lashes appear longer, and it holds the curl. Love this.

The ultimate mascara primer! Offers length, volume, curl. It's a bit expensive but it is worth it! Gives you faboulous results after applying mascara and if you choose an equally good mascara(such as YSL's Effet Faux Cils) the result is going to be dramatic!

This was a huge disapointement... but since I got the sample size in a lancome girft with my hypnose purchase Its not too bad.... and I'm really happy I didnt buy the full version right away.
I'm not going to lie, this is the first time my fellwo MUAers let me down =[[[[ apparently this stuff gave your lashes that OOMPH! Not me =[[[
This stuff made my lashes a lot thicker and more dramatic if used properly but unortuantly it only happens with luck for me.... its really difficult to use. Its also hard to cover with black mascar.... it clumps like crazy! And even if your lashes look good the first 10 minutes... they soon droop and look like a mess!
I even got the MA to apply it for me... and she had no idea why it wasnt working so its not my aplication.
AND i use a lancome mascara with it.... so you'd think they wouldnt clash... but it totally fcuks my hypnose!

I love this product, it really lengthens and thickens my lashes to give volume and length. It can clump though, so I usually go through with a spoolie right after applying to even out application, let dry, then apply mascara. Really an amazing product as long as it is not over applied.
