My eyes are somewhat sensitive but I wear daily contacts b/ of my need for moisture and this hasn't had any negative effect on my eyes, contacts or sensitivity at all!

Question
Use with "tubing" mascaras
Can this be used with tubing mascaras (such as Blinc or Kevyn Aucoin)? I have thin eyelashes and definitely see an improvement on how my mascara looks when I use a primer. I am just concerned since the concept of the tubing mascaras is completely different than the majority of mascaras.

I haven't used the tubing mascaras that you mentioned but I have used another kind. My daughter didn't close the primer part of mine so I used this primer with my tubing mascara with great results.

I used it with Fiberwig. I didn't see dramatic results. I did see big lashes with the UD one.

Has anybody used the Urban Decay one?
I love Urban Decay and Smashbox. Which one will curl more? Smashbox is a little cheaper, so I might try that one first.

I have the smashbox and use it with my Buxom mascara. This one is cheaper but I am totally in love with it. I don't ever skip a day without this under my mascara. It has made my eyelashes longer and fully with the conditioning serum, since I had thin eyelashes to begin with. I love this for everyday use. It holds my mascara on great. No raccoon eyes, even during my track workouts, it keeps my mascara on! Which I was worried about when I ordered it. I defiantly would recommend this to you.

go to the store and use try one on one eye, and one on the other. bring your own mascara so you know how each reacts with what you already have. (have a contest LOL)

i personally prefer administering the "accidentally scratching my eye test" and see which one will hold better with an accidental scratch.

note that people have a different reaction per product, so its best that you see how it reacts to you, not to other people.

No, I find it works best when you apply mascara immediately after applying lash primer.

Question
How should I apply this?
Should I apply mascara immediately after? Wait for it to dry a little? Wait for it to dry completely? I have to use a lot of mascara to cover up the white, and it can get clumpy so I'm wondering how to use this for the best effect. Also does anyone know if this improves your lashes over time (strength, length, volume)?

after alot of trial and error. i hold the primer and my mascara in the same hand. i take the primer and use it first on top lashes. then before i move to the bottom i apply mascara to the top before it has a chance to dry completely. this (for me) prevents clumping and gives my lashes a little extra length. then i repeat the same process on the bottom lashes.

I'd apply the mascara immediately after. I have tried waiting for the primer to dry first and I don't get as good a result as when I apply mascara immediately after.

Try applying mascara right after applying the serum while it is still wet to prevent dryness or clumps- over time this does help to strengthen and soften the lashes.

yes. Primer allows the mascara to cling onto it, hence, keeping it from smudging

Just my opinion, but I wouldn't. I've used a few types of overnight lash conditioners and they didn't dry as stiff as this primer. I know it has some good stuff in it but it's still makeup. I think it might protect against some of the harsher ingredients in regular mascara but if you wear it while sleeping and say rub your face on your pillow I would think that your lashes would fall out easier from being stiff. Try a softer lash conditioner thats meant for the purpose.
