I've never actually bought a full size one of these, because luckily Sephora often offers them as free gifts (if you rack up enough point$), and I don't wear it all the time - generally just when I'm dressed to impress or wanna look extra pretty for a solo dance party slash selfie soirée in my bedroom. But I wear it enough to know that a little bit goes a long way. My lashes stretch to the stars with this stuff! This is a bold claim, but I don't think I've ever been happier with a cosmetic product. I recently tried a sample size of the Dior version of this same type of mascara primer, & while it was okay, I felt that the application wasn't as smooth and the end results not as dramatic. I do want to try the Urban Decay version because I've heard both horrific and marvelous things about it, but that's beside the point. Basically, whoever came up with the idea of a lash-extending mascara primer was brilliant & Lancôme delivers! Plus, although it's pricey, I find that I can use any old drug store mascara (I actually use Boots no. 7, it's like $10) & still get the "drama" I crave.
I enjoy this product wet on my lashes. I get them exactly how I want them to look and then (while it is still wet) apply my mascara on top. The formula seems to stretch to 100-200% and my lashes can almost look like Falsies! I adore this product. My only issue is that sometimes it seems as if i do not get very much product in the tube for the cost.
I have never tried a lash primer and honestly would never buy one, I wear Falsies everyday. But this product is awesome. Not clumpy, easy to apply, doesn't flake off and dries fast. Smells good as well. I definitely use this when I don't wear false eye lashes, to make my eyes POP.
Keep your receipts. Most stores have great makeup return/exchange policies.
From what I understand this should boost your lashes. I didn't find that this made any difference and the product was quite messy to work with. It clumped and bunched and in the end it weighed my lashes down rather than the typical curled effect I am used to. There was some fullness but not anything extreme. There seems to be so many raving reviews on this product so maybe it just wasn't for me!
