Why oh why can't L'Oréal (or Maybelline) release simply a reasonably priced LASH PRIMER????? That's all I want: a simple, affordable, GOOD quality, individual lash primer, which performs reasonably well! (sure, I like some higher end ones, but why would I pay more for a primer to go under my drugstore mascaras of choice?)
But, nooooo! Not in Canada! (or elsewhere, too?)
I am not a fan of dual ended mascaras, as they don't handle well (at least, not for me). I bought this new duo with the hopes of achieving the same intense black and thick volume as original/Carbon Black Voluminous. At the very least, if I didn't mind the primer, I'd only have paid $9.99 for the product(s).
Primer: heavy, but it keeps my other mascaras wearing longer, with added fullness.
Mascara: didn't mind the short handle and curved brush. However, I DO mind the flaking and black fibres which end up speckled atop my cheeks, under my brows, and sometimes under my NOSE!!
Buy it for the primer, not the mascara. Buy it with a coupon, as well as on sale. But don't expect "Superstar" lashes.
