Does anyone use a mascara primer that really works?

Hey all, 

 

Can anyone recommend a primer like a lash fiber like primer that adds little fake lashes to your lashes or just makes them look fuller and then you apply the mascara over the top? Im hopeless at applying false lashes and wanted my eyes to really pop at my son's baptism since I wanted to keep the rest of my face pretty neutral.

The one from Lancome is excellent! It's pricey--but, hey, it works very well.

I was just going to recommend this one.  It's not a lash primer, though, it's a two part system of mascara and lash extension fibers.  Use the mascara first, then the fibers, then the mascara again.  I've had very good luck with it.  Plus, PF often goes on sale so that makes it an even better deal.

I'm not Goldengate, but I use it -- Lancome CILS Booster XL runs about $25.

 

I apply it and then right after that apply the mascara. I do not let it dry between each (primer & mascara).

 

Not sure if that is the way to apply it, others might do it differently.

I use Clinique's and really like it.  It doesn't flake.

I alternate between the Lancome one mentioned and the Clinique one.  Both are white.  I also swipe on and immediately apply mascara.  I have found that if you let it dry too much, the mascara does not go on nicely.  Either of these primers make a huge difference in the length and volume of my lashes.  By the way, I have tried two versions of the black primers containing actual fibers.  They were a mess!  I would not recommend anything like that.  The fibers flaked off on my face all day long.

I use a clear mascara by Maybelline Great Lash as a primer that works pretty well. I agree with the other poster, I wouldn't use one with fibers, I would be afraid it would end up in my eyes and on my face.
