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.

This is definitely my lash primer of choice. I like how this primer contains lash lengthening fibers in it so I can use it underneath my regular mascaras. It really lengthens my lashes, and when I use it with a mascara with fibers in it too, like Fiberwig I get super long lashes! This also helps thicken my lashes, and also helps prevent smudging. It makes any mascara perform better, and I won't wear mascara without it.

HG,. HG,. HG! I've been using this since it first came out and by now I've probably gone through thousands of tubes. I may switch mascaras but I never, ever am without my Cils Booster. It makes a real difference in keeping my mascara on my lashes instead of under my eyes, and it also thickens and conditions my lashes.

I find that the trick to using this is: 1) Apply with a LIGHT hand. A little goes a long way - don't clump on globs of the stuff. That way it won't show through your mascara - applied lightly it will NOT. 2) Let it dry for a bit before applying mascara. I curl my lashes, apply, and let my Cils Booster dry while applying blush and/or lipstick, THEN apply my mascara. No clumps, no smudging.

I really like this STUFF!!! My lash tips especially are very fine...and this accentuates the length just perfect for me.

I then apply my Definicils or Telescopic and it makes the length incredible!!

One reviewer commented about different lash textures.....and I believe she hit the nail on the head with that remark. All products do not work the same on matter HOW good they are.

If you don't like it you can return or swap....really simple!!

Hello holy grail mascara base! Its so nice to finally meet you! Your beautiful and perfect. You make my short sparse lashes look better than falsies, no matter what mascara I put on over you you bring out the best in it and give me the kind of lashes I have always wanted. I'll pay just about any price for that and I find you extremely worth it. Since I'm over juicy tubes and most of the Lancome ladies at my local counter scare me I never thought I would go there again but you, my beautiful Cils Booster XL have given me a reason. Never stop being you, never leave me. I love you.

Bought and tried it due to the reviews. I compared one eye with this primer with Diorshow and one eye with just Diorshow. What I found that the primer made my eyelashes more spidery despite following advice on leaving it for 30 seconds and then apply mascara. Did nothing for lengthing since the Dior side was the same length as the primer side.

I returned it at the end.
