I tried wearing it alone on my dark eyelashes. It did make them look prettier. And it did dry clear. However, there was a clear, sort-of plastic-coating look to them that made them look awkwardly lighter/gray - hard to describe, but like they were coated in some sort of residue.

Yes you can wear it alone. It comes on clear. Overtime ive noticed the tube getting gray/murky because i use it over mascara, but this quickly goes away and doesnt seem to dull my lashes at all.

I apply mascara to both eyes & then Lash Genious right after so the only "dry time" is finishing the other eye & switching tubes.

I find waiting till my lashes are dry to the touch makes them last all day! I have also not waited and found that it doesn't waterproof as much. (I have those typical Asian eyelashes, straight and I often get the raccoon eyes if I don't use waterproof everything!)

When they showed this to my in the store, they applied it a minute or two later, after my original coat was dry. Applying at home, I wait a minute as well. To my understanding, this works to coat over the original mascara to make it waterproof, like a topcoat for nail polish.

Also, I suspect that if you applied while the mascara was still wet, it might affect how the lashes looked - like smudging nail polish.

I wait about a minute after my mascara has been applied then apply this over it. I also swipe it on the underside of my lower lashes and the tops of my upper lashes too to create an invisible coat of armor over all of my lashes not just the top.

Not sure. It has no color, nor does it lengthen or thicken. I believe it's just a basic water proofing formula. I don't notice a difference in holding a curl either.

Look at clear mascaras if you just want shine.

Hope this helps!

100% Yes!!! I just got back from spending 2 weeks in Florida and took this with me. The first week we were in a tropical storm and this kept my eyes looking fabulous and the the second week we went to the Gulf coast and I swam in both the Gulf and in the pool with this on over my mascara and I had women asking me how my I could keep my eye makeup looking so perfect while swimming. I mean real swimming too not just dipping my feet in the water but swimming underwater with my two kids. This is a must have!

I tried it once, and it wasn't the best experience. After using it as a top coat for my mascara, the clear color has turned slightly grey... Not the color I want my eyebrows to be. Anastasia makes a wonderful brow top coat that lasts all day, and even through a very sweaty workout session.

I use it on my eyebrows after I draw them in and I haven't had a problem with it. It feels more like a brow gel than a top coat to protect your eyebrows though.

I've used them to tame my eyebrows - they do hold, but it is a bit crunchy looking. Take a brow brush after they have dried and give them a light touch brush in the direction you set your brows. Seems to help my brow penciling in place.

I always use Clinique's Rinse Off Eye Makeup Solvent Makeup Remover and it always comes off easily. I just put some in a cotton ball then dab on your lashes and let it sit for a few seconds and then take off and I never have trouble taking it off. To refresh my face after, I use Clinique's Wash Away Gel Cleanser!

Question
Swim-proof?
I have stick straight eyelashes; I curl them and find that only waterproof mascaras hold the curl, regular mascaras straighten them once I apply defeating the purpose of curling my eyelashes prior. When I go swimming, even with waterproof mascaras my eyelashes straighten out again. So my question was, will this product work to keep my eyelashes curled after I go swimming (pool/ocean)?

This product did not work well for me to give my non-waterproof mascaras waterproof-ness. But, it did give my eyelashes a perk over already waterproof mascaras that I own. So, that may give you a little lift.
My favorite for waterproof mascara is Cannonball by Urban Decay (also at Sephora). I curl my lashes first, tissue wipe the applicator to avoid "spider-legs", apply it, then comb through a bit. Afterwards I make sure to let them dry. This may be all you need.
But, I did try applying Anastasia directly after applying Cannonball and it did give it a small lift; for me Cannonball had already did the job so this Anastasia product did not give much bang for the expense, but it may work for your problem if the right waterproof mascara isn't cutting it.

I don't use it this way but I imagine it would work well, given that it provides a smooth, streamlined look, so you could put a volumizing mascara on top of it and it would give you a much fuller but hopefully still well-defined look.

I would not use this as a primer. Think of it more as a top coat for your mascara. It makes it smudge and waterproof but doesn't do much if its applied before other products.
