When i put it on, it makes your lashes white and you can definitely notice it so I probably wouldn't recommend using it by itself.

It would look very odd, because it doesn't dry completely clear. It would look as thought you put glue on your lashes.

I find if I let my primer dry my mascara tends to clump and by about 3 p.m. Lasses tend to appear gray or have spots of white. If I apply mascara immediately after primer I don't have these problems at all, or much later in the day say 9 or 10 p.m. Different strokes for different folks though

I was told to apply while it is still "wet" by a Sephora store consultant. I am glad she did. It can make my mascara clumpy if I don't, works perfectly as a primer if it is still damp.

Question
Does it hold a curl?
If I curl my lashes before applying the primer, will they begin to droop before I can apply my mascara? Or will this primer hold a curl pretty well?

(I prefer to use my curler on bare lashes so my curler doesn't get all sticky!)

answer 1
It entirely depends on how you use this. I have short straight lashes, but this product managed to hold my curl as well as anything else. That's because I apply it sparingly, and only at the tips. If you gloop this on all over your lashes, you'll definitely lose the curl.

I curl my lashes first, then use this primer, then immediately use mascara. Some primers are so wet they straighten your lashes before you get to the mascara, but this doesn't. Good stuff. At night take off all makeup and cleanse face and use good moisturizer. No makeup on face at night. This is not a eyelash serum for growing eyelashes.

This product, in my experience, makes your mascara easier to remove. You wont look like a raccoon when you get out of the shower unless you were really rubbing, and no more pulling out lashes either.

Assuming you are also applying a darker mascara over it yes, it holds stronger than a mascara would alone. If you use a make up remover or just spend an extra couple seconds on your eye area when washing then you should be just fine. It is not as strong as a waterproof mascara.

The primer is quite difficult to remove. Little bits of primer were left all over my lashes and the extra effort required to remove the primer caused a few lashes to fall out.

Will this work with other mascaras?
I have tons of unused mascaras at home and would like to finish them before buying another tube. Will the primer work with other brands of mascaras? (I'm not expecting it to work nearly as well as with the mascara Tarte formulated especially for the primer, but close enough.)

What you think it exactly right - it can work with other mascaras (I've tried with tarte's other mascara, buxom and lash blast) but none work as well as the multipleye mascara with the primer. I also use the 1st step/ treatment so I kind of round out the whole system and my lashes are definitely longer.

How to apply
I have tried many primers and they vary as to the application. Some brands suggest letting the primer dry before applying mascara and others recommend immediately applying the mascara after primer. What is the recommended technique for this primer?

answer 1
I have tried many techniques and the one that works the best is:
Apply Primer to right eye, then left eye.
Wait 30 seconds then apply mascara in the same order.
If it is too wet the mascara lightens and the primer comes off onto the mascara brush. If it is too dry it doesn't go on as smoothly. Hate to say it, but somewhere in between wet and dry is best in my opinion.

I don't know what they recommend, but I have had good results applying mascara on either wet or dry primer. I've used other combos where the primer had to be wet, but this one seems to work well either way. It's a very soft formula, while still giving a dramatic look.

I have used the Lancome primer for years. I like the Tarte primer a bit more. It makes my mascara go on very smoothly, lifts, and curls my lashes. It clumps my lashes a little bit, but so did the Lancome primer. I like the nourishing qualities of the Tarte primer, also.

Lancome's primer has fibres in it, that add to the length of your lashes (temporarily). This one actually nourishes and encourages growth.

I was weighing the pros on each of them, and decide on Tarte.

You should be fine. I don't use and haven't tried Tarte's mascara personally but I used Loreal Paris' Volumizing Waterproof mascara and it works great with that. I'm sure the Tarte mascara works better with it seeing as they are the same line, but my everyday look and what I'm expecting (which isn't much :D) any over the counter drugstore mascara should work fine with it too. I feel like my lashes look great, definitely more defined and lengthened :D

I have really sensitive eyes; I can't wear certain mascaras or particular shades of eye makeup because I am allergic to the dyes.
